It's just that, like Latias and Latios as well, the new metagame made light of its power to bring them down to the same realm as the rest of OU.

    In other news, I do not have the patience to compare that many Pokemon.
    Yeah I thought as much with Chansey vs Blissey, Blissey is more flexible with its movepool than Chansey not to mention Leftovers was one of the main selling points for Blissey too due to that particular item keeping Bliss alive in Sandstorms and Hail.

    Oh okay that makes sense. TBH a Scarf Mence does sound pretty enticing right now although that may as well be outclassed by DD Mence altogether due to the same reasons why Specs Volcarona is entirely outclassed by Quiver Dance Volcarona.

    And yes I know I have way too much time on my free hands to be brainstorming of this these kinds of topics to begin with lol.
