    This thread will be used to organize Ubers analysis writing and improvement, and can be used for general questions or discussions about handling Ubers analyses.

    Rules

    1. Please don't start an analysis on a Pokemon that has already been started by someone else.

    2. Starting an analysis and then abandoning it is not recommended. You'll get a reminder about that specific analysis to be updated before someone else can take over.

    3. Start a Skeleton version of your analysis before writing it out. This allows the QC to easily make suggestions before it is written out.

    Make sure to read the rules of writing analyses before jumping in.

    Tyranitar

    This is just a starting list, if you have any suggestions on Pokemon that need analyses in Ubers, post in the thread.

    Nothing yet

    When attempting to start writing analyses, please keep in mind to not write more than 3, before they are officially passed by the Ubers QC.

    Current list of the Ubers QC:

    -Raducan
    -ZoroDark
    -Fixed

    QC Members make sure to read the QC Guidelines!
    These are the people who go through each analysis and add suggestions to the analysis and inspect the overall quality of the analysis before it is official. Once the skeleton is approved by 3/4 QC members, you may start working on the write-up. If you're interested in becoming a QC member, contact me.

    Tags

    [WIP] - WIP stands for "Work-in-Progress." Your analysis' thread prefix will be changed to this once you have written out the analysis after an approved skeleton.
    [Skeleton] - When you first post the skeleton of your analysis, use this prefix.
    [Approved] - When your skeleton has been approved by QC and you are writing it up, the tag will be changed to this, signifying an approved skeleton.
    [Grammar] - Once you have completely written up your analysis, change to this tag so a Grammar Patrol member can give your analysis a final check before it gets approved once more.
    [Complete] - When your analysis has gone all through all the stages of analysis, the tag will be changed to this.
    [Available] - If you have abandoned your analysis, this tag will be used to signify that it is open for anyone to take and improve.
    [Update] - If your analysis is out of date with the current metagame, the tag will be changed to this so that you know it needs to be updated to fit the current metagame.

    Aegislash and both megazards need including in that list iirc, as they're all fairly successful in Ubers.

    I did Aegislash.

    I'd do more but I'm waiting for the "go-ahead" from whoever approves them :L

    Aegislash has been started already, and I've added Charizard to the list.

    After all the fixing up from the suggestions in the threads, the QC will take one final look before "officially" approving them.

    Some niche mons like Abomasnow (SpDef checks Kyogre and Electriceus), Clefable (counters setup sweepers but must focus on one side), Drapion (AV traps Mega Gengar while dealing with special Mewtwo, Lugia quite well), Syvleon (nice special wall with great typing and having wish and heal bell together) should probably get an analysis. Not sure of some of them though since they aren't anything good though.

    One thing I want to ask. How many QC approvals would we need to start on an analysis write-up?
    Wasn't specified.

    2 would be enough imo, but as we gain more QCs[HELLO ZORODARK], 3 would work very well too.

    Since we have 5 QC, 3 approved would be good to start working on the write-up. Added it to the OP.

    I might be a little skimpy on the Steel Phoenix set, but I finally got around to editing the thread and finished Ho-oh.

    If you mean starting to write out a skeleton for it, you can do that whenever you want, no need for permission! (Just follow the rules in the OP of which you can only have 3 at a time that are work-in-progress)

    By the way, what are the grounds for rejecting an analysis? Even the worst ones can be improved to the point where they are acceptable. Is it just unviable pokemon?

    If it comes to an analysis being done for a Pokemon that serves no purpose and/or fills no special niche in the tier, and that is agreed upon by the majority of the QC, then the thread will be locked and the analysis would essentially be rejected.

    Like I said before, Manaphy is UU and already has an analysis, so there isn't much of a point to writing one for Ubers. At the top of this thread you can find a list of Ubers analyses that have yet to be written. Make sure to follow those guidelines I left you.

    Spiritomb is not viable in Ubers. Xerneas uses it as set up fodder, while if you want a bulky Ghost type you've got Giratina, Ghost Arceus and Sableye to choose from.

    Asssualt Vest Spiritomb has a niche as Mega Gengar trapper which can even trap the rare substitute varients while also trapping Mewtwo and DeoA. It is also a cool Extremekiller check thanks to ifs typing and access to Foul Play.
