Seriously, I like Xatu as a pokemon, but it's terrible, and it's only become more outclassed this gen.

With the weather nerf, Morning Sun is a much more reliable form of recovery, unless you are running your own rain or sand. That allows Espeon to run Xatu's bulky set. Espeon has better defensive stats anyway, having a base special defense stat 25 more than Xatu, with only a slightly lower defense stat, and the same HP.

The only things Xatu actually has over Espeon are Thunder Wave and U-Turn, but I honestly don't think it's worth the severe drop in power, SR weakness, and loss of Baton Pass.
