It's true though. Pretty much every high ranked team has one.

It would be nice if it did get banned.


Thats just wrong. Genesect is my favorite opponent in OU. Please don't take him away!!

He's like the Man-Eater Bug of Pokemon. Oh, those stats, this guy's usele... wait.... wait, holy ****.

I think saying Rescue Rabbit would be a better, more recent example.
"Oh, a worse version of Rescue Cat, which can only summon 2 Vanillas of the same name an--- wait what are you doing with those oooh noooo **** ****"

4x Fire Weakness didn't stop Scizor from being OU.


It did until it got Bullet Punch. It was stuck in BL prior to that.


No. 4x Fire Weakness wasn't the reason Scizor wasn't OU, and it wasn't the reason people thought Genesect would suffer. Scizor was BL because his movepool blew ass (his best move before blessings such as Bullet Punch and U-Turn were created was Silver Wind). To further stress how bad his movepool was, Gen III Scizor had a worse movepool than Escavalier does. If anything, his typing was one of the few bones thrown his way prior to Gen IV.

As for Genesect, as others said, people thought base 99 speed made more of a deal than it does. People tend to overstate speed when theorymoning.

Smogon calls it good, great under rain, possible suspect but not on genesect's leve.

You know, I mentioned 4x weakness as fire as ONE OF the reasons people overlooked Genesect. Not the only reason.

But it wasn't to anyone who isn't a noob. Bug/Steel is a great typing. You get a slew of resistances for only one (predictable) 4x weakness.

^Ya Bug/Steel is great and everyone knows it. AND EVERYONE KNEW GENSECT WAS GOOD (probably since DW OU started but at least for 5-6 months before BW2 came out).

Genesect is stupidly good he sucks in ubers sure but he shouldnt be anywhere near OU. people who think hes not broken have no sense sure you can beat him but it doesnt change the fact hes more monsterous then freaking garchomp. Genesect can run a variety of sets and it makes countering a pain in the ass. Scizors hate Magnetzones generally unless they get that super power off they pretty screwed. Genesect isnt so easy to lock down. although i was pretty content i Pulled a sucessful Zoroark off because of him :)
