    There's also Gorebyss and Huntail.

    ..Scizor's probably the only good one out of the four, though.

    So, I'm SRing the TRU Regigigas, and I come up with this:

    Regigigas - #486 (Brave)
    HP: 20
    Att: 26
    Def: 0
    SpA: 17
    SpD: 4
    Speed: 29

    Brave #486 Regigigas: 20 / 26 / 0 / 17 / 4 / 29

    Hidden Power Type is 'Bug'. Hidden Power Power is 31.

    Opinions? Keep or trash? Seems a waste to have 29 IVs in speed with a -Speed nature, but those Attack and HP IVs aren't shabby...

    ^Trash. IVs aside, the Toys R Us Regigigas is already level 100, meaning it can't be EV trained. You're better off just catching a "normal" one, since you can influence its nature, EVs, etc.

    EDIT: When I say trash, I don't mean get rid of it-- I just mean it's no good competitively. But you should keep that Regigigas so that you can access the other three golems in Platinum (if you want).

    Well, first off, Brave is a terrible nature for a Hypno. Brave is +Attack, -Speed, and on a special-based pokemon (particularly one with decent speed), that's pretty much worthless. Besides, you're not even using a physically based attack, so the Brave nature is completely useless.

    Your moveset also banks a lot on Hypnosis hitting. Though it's accuracy got a boost in DP, in Platinum, it's back down to 60% accuracy. Even then, there's no way to gauge how long your opponent will stay asleep, provided they even stay in. The unexpected awakening of your opponent, or their switching out, completely nullifies two of your attacks. Your third attack, Psychic, gets a lot of neutral damage, but doesn't hit a lot super-effectively, and if a Dark or Steel type switches in, you're screwed.

    Hypno doesn't do well as an all-out attacker. It's an annoyer -- it gets a wide range of status moves, and is very good at coming in (especially on special based attacks), causing the status of choice, maybe attacking, then getting the hell out of there. Try looking here for some ideas.

    In addition to what Edo-kun said, Dream Eater shouldn't be used, as you can't use it if the opponent hasn't been put to sleep yet. Plus, with sleep clause in most competitive scenes, it completely wastes your moveslot should they switch. Nightmare is bad for similar reasons. I can't think of a situation where either of those moves are worth the space.

    Just a note...I'm probably going to end up keeping that TRU Regigigas I put up for opinions a couple posts ago. Thanks Shipwreck Kelly (though if anyone has a convincing argument as to why I should keep resetting, I'm perfectly willing to listen).

    ^Shaymin's Land Forme is UU on Smogon. Once they create a page for Shaymin's Sky Forme, I'm sure it will be OU, if not Uber.

    Also, Smogon moved basically all of BL into UU for testing. I'm pretty sure Land Forme should be BL, but I haven't really used it much so I don't really know.

    Because its based on usage, and without the BL ban tier in existance right now for testing, people who don't know that automatically think UU = Weak.

    Why isnt Shadow Claw used in SD Lucario? Doesnt the Combo of Shadow Claw and Close Combat hit everything at least neutral, and with Extreme speed and the boost from Swords Dance he should be able to take down most things.

    Crunch basically gets the same coverage without Normal types being immune to it. Also the physical defense loss is fairly nice. Its not only hitting everything neutral, but also being able to better handle better threats and counters.

    I'd imagine that physical Lucarios would now use Ice Punch or Thunder punch.
