anuticciwb posted... QualiT posted... lord_zekrom posted... already high speed + decent special attack + substitute that was passed + quiver = terror OU
you could apply that logic too any specially based pokemon....
butterfree isn't ou.
imagine nidoking/hydreigon with quiver dance...
if you passed it a sub then it could own. it even gets a reliable sleep move too get some set up time, whereas galvantula gets 1 QDance max before its sub is broken, then its one shot everything or be one shotted at least with butterfree you're 6-5 up and butterfree is at +1/+1/+1.
It could actually make it into OU with that. Using a LO, it can OHKO Choice Band Tyranitar with Bug Buzz after SR damage and against the standard set, it could take a Fire Blast or Crunch and then they would both likely go down, as long as it didn't switch into SR. It can also OHKO any non max/max+ Dragonite with Thunder after SR damage.
Blissey, Speed tying with Scarf Terrakion, and CB Scizor (takes about 50% of its HP away with Bullet Punch) would still be problematic but those can be taken out with by your other 5 Pokemon.
