    Alright, let's face it, Reuniclus is great. He's slow enough to where Paralysis doesn't matter, yet Bulky enough to set up with ease. He shows what it takes to be a powerhouse without Speed. Any Pokemon would kill to have his ability which allows you to only take damage from attacks. His move-pool includes an arsenal of great moves, and should not be taken lightly. Also, with Trick Room, he can be utterly destructive. However, this Pokemon is not without flaws. His counters include two of the top-3 most prominent Pokemon in OU: Tyranitar and Scizor. With enough boosts, though, Reuniclus shows what true POWA is.

    I'll be editing the OP with some of my favorite sets soon so this thread follows the rules. Hopefully Artist Smeargle won't mind. I'll also be starting a discussion fairly soon.

    Well, for favorite sets, you could post it below the list of Moves. (assuming OP = Original Post, according to Azotal.) Just where I would put it.
    You could also, if you were planning on it, edit the Base Stats to make it look less empty.

    I'm probably doing postcount++, but I'll be editing the discussion's OP to match a certain format that looks cleaner than what's here when I have time. Hope none of you mind!

    Reuniclus is amazing. It has great bulk which is aided by its access to Recover. Magic Guard is an amazing ability that really fits well on this guy. It prevents indirect damage (hazards damage, Life Orb recoil, Sand and Hail damage, Burn and Toxic damage, etcetera). That means Stall doesn't have a field day against it. That means the Multiplier Pokémon also acts as a nice stallbreaker. It can also be used as a Trick Room sweeper, which it can set up itself. A base 125 Special Attack lets it hit very hard, and can get boosted by Life Orb without having to take recoil damage after each turn, adding to its survivability. Calm Mind is another interesting option for Reuniclus, as it can start a sweep after a few boosts. It also has the possibility of using support options, such as Screens or Thunder Wave(on a non-Trick Room set). Choice Specs set are effective if used on a fitting team, although they aren't as common. Now that I am done ranting about the positive aspects about this Pokémon, let's move to its negative points, seeing that perfect Pokémon are not placed in the OU tier.


    An underwhelming base 30 Speed stat really hurts Reuniclus, when Trick Room is not up. It is open to be revenge-killed by slow Choice Band users, like Scizor, who is regularly seen on pretty much every OU team. It is also Pursuit-weak, which means it can be trapped and get rid of. It also gets easily crippled by Trick, a common move found on Choice users. Anyways, I believe Reuniclus is a very dangerous threat in OU, and that it should never be under-estimated.

    Hey, I'll just say this here because we have everyone's attention. I believe that the level up moves and such are pointless for these discussions, as we already know what the common move sets for these Pokemon are, and this also takes too much time. I'll try and contribute more soon.

    I agree with Harsha. Level up moves don't really contribute to discussing about a Pokemon's competitive aspects. I believe something similar to this format should work.

    - Intro
    - Sets
    - Other Options
    - Checks and Counters
    - Obligatory DW section

    OR, you could add a list of pertinent moves that could be used competitively, whilst having a brief description for each move to ease the reader's comprehension.
