I love Misdreavus, but payback isn't the best option for it... were you in the battle tower?
There ya go.
Thats because the only people you fight are
-moronic pokemon bots in battle tower or in game
Neither of which willl use an umbreon correctly.
Flareon needs Flare Blitz to be viable in a physical build.
Or a 120 power physical move that reduces a stat, or a couple of stats(think superpower and close combat)
Umbreon is a very reliable wishpasser, I really like it for that purpose.
The only problem it has is its weakness to bug and fighting moves, both which are very common in OU.
Lots of fighting and u-turners. Though Umbreon can take a u-turn from most of them, it gets completely obliterated by Scizor's.
Scarf Glaceon makes a mean sweeper in a UU hail team.
Heck, it can even function in OU hail or in a non-hail team.. The only issues it has outside of Hail, is the loss of Blizzard in favor of Ice Beam. And due to Choice Scarf it really likes that additional power.
Glaceon doesn't really function anywhere without a Choice Scarf, it's too slow, and its weakness to common steel, rock, fire and fighting moves demands that it uses a Choice Scarf to outrun most pokemon before they can hit it with that move.
Leafeon, in addition to being a strong UU sweeper, it can also pass SS really, really well in there. Neglecting its offenses, it can survive a physical hit, and pass SS to another pokemon.
Arcanine and Entei are good examples to receive because of their bulkyness, extremespeed and resistance to fire and ice attacks.
Espeon is also a strong passer in UU, but it requires a lot of maintenance to pull it off. Like it has to come in against a special attacker and that attacker has to stay in, because the moment a physical attacks comes in, it's difficult for it to survive.
Jolteon does well with a Choice Specs build, its Thunderbolt is among the strongest in the game, as it receives STAB and is backed by 477 special attack. I often find myself taking more than half of any switch in that doesn't resist it. Life Orb is doable, but it will quickly fall to sandstorm/hail and recoil damage.
Honestly, Eeveelutions are great.. It's a shame they lack good movepools.
They often have the stats, but they often lack the moves to do anything else than their main niche.
I do look forward to trying a JoltyPoreon in rain dance. Should be good.
no seriously, you are awesome!!!
Obvious troll is obvious.
And specially defensive Vaporeon is actually pretty strong. Though the wishpassing balanced defense Vaporeon does better.
IM NOT TROLLN GOD RAPTOR!
by the way, your an awful meme rip-off guy
