    (Updated February 20th, 2016)


    Welcome to the updated ORAS NU Teambuilding Compendium.

    The goal of this thread is to provide a visual list of which Pokémon does what in the ORAS NU metagame. This compendium contains basic structures for teams and an array of possible mons for specific roles, to help newcomers and veterans alike in building successful and more diverse teams in the ORAS NU tier.

    In this compendium you will find the pokemon divided into sub-sections depending on their role, making it easy to navigate your way to the type of pokemon you need. Do note that not every pokemon in the NU tier has been included, only those which I believe to be viable or have some sort of niche in the tier have been listed. If there is a Pokémon which is not listed and can perform well in a certain role, please feel free to post about it and it will be added. Also any advice about improving the compendium is welcome, so keep the inputs coming!

    Froslass should be removed from dedicated leads cause it moved up.

    I honestly don't know how I feel about Vivillon being in the Dedicated Lead section. I personally think it's way too telegraphed and can put it loads of work outside of the lead spot if you can keep Rocks away. Basically like a Volc of NU.

    Masquerain needs to be added to the Quiver Dance user list, as well as the dedicated lead spot imo. Getting Web up and Quiver Passing from the lead spot is probably its best use.

    Nasty Plot Houndoom to Special Wallbreakers.

    I honestly think Specs Jynx is really bad and should never be used but I don't have a good reason to take it down outside of personal preference.

    Mega Camel should probably be removed from all of the lists and the top of the page.
