Really sorry for not being active today. I had to run some errands and it took longer then I thought. :( Then my mom fell, but she's ok. So yeah......

@Pun: Sorry about not battling you today. I'm going to be gone most of day tomorrow, but I should be back around 7 pm eastern time.

I'm sad latias got moved up, just because I was using it as a toxic staller in one of my teams. But ttar will go down in usage, but the only thing that I can think of that benefits from is mence. Latias was the only thing that I can think of that resists all the attacks on mix set(except for the obvious of course, but it's pretty easy to out predict salamence)

Flygon is amazing. It's a great late-game Scarfer

Anyway, basically saying adios for the night, I'm off. I could type a block of text about Latias, but I'll go do that in the proper thread.
EDIT: Done.
Alright, I'm discussing Latias and Mence here, so yeah, have a fit; I don't care.

Basically, moving Latias up is a huge mistake. OU is at a key point right now, sort of an "even keel", if I may. While it's never completely stable, it was going pretty well I thought, even though I have been absent from play for maybe a month.
In short, Latias has been the glue that's holding OU where it was. It kept Salamence in check, by not only countering it, but also raising the usage of Tyranitar; particularly choice scarfers as of late. T-tar also scares away Gyarados to an extent due to the fear of it holding a Choice Scarf, and Latias kept it at bay with Thunderbolt as well. Latias being in OU also kept Scizor in use, while being a check to Heatran resisting its STAB move and Earth Power. Latias also counters a more overlooked threat nowadays (at least I think so), Infernape. With Latias moving down, Ape will see a huge increase.
I mean, I really could go on and on and on about how things will rise and fall in usage, affecting the metagame for the worse until Black and White roll around, but yeah. This sucks major ass, considering Latias will be the first in possibly a few pokemon to be sent up to uber.
P.S., not to mention Latias was awesome on Sandstorm teams.
EDIT: Now, what I posted will basically sum up over centralization, but that's exactly what Latias brought to the table. The centralization is what kept everything else in check; at least in my eyes and experience. It wasn't at all difficult to counter though, unlike our old friend Garchomp.

I EV train. I've never tried Shoddy :P My competitive battling skills: we'll just have to battle to find out:)

latias resists, eq and Fire blast of that set, but as predictible as mixmence is, i wouldn't switch in latias, i don't want my poor eon dragon to risk death. I like useing a scarf latias as a relible check for threats, just a pitty about it beeing pursuit bait.

Again sorry about not being today, I was earlier for a bit, but I didn't get a chance to post. I went to see Shrek 4 and it was really good :D Not as good as the first two, but better then the third. I also so the trailer for Avatar and it looks really good, I can't wait to see it.

I should be home all day tomorrow, so I'll be up for battles and stuff.

Oh yeah, M. Night Shamalan directed it it iirc. Looks begging for amazing special effects, considering people shoot f*cking fireballs from their fists, and throw a mini-tsunami on you whenever they feel like it.
Haven't started on the team... went to do stuff. Haha.
