99 speed is such a troll speed tier. It'll be useful with a life orb I guess but in all honesty, it isn't that great. Bug/Steel is good defensively, but offensively it's terrible. Scizor can get away with it only because of Bullet Punch + U-turn.
MewtwoTHOUSAND is an original character DO NOT STEAL.
Oh and I use cheating devices to hack legitimate pokemon that I use for my own amusement only, get over it.
Actually, it's pretty good typing. But even if it was bad, it's not bad enough to slow it down to much. STAB bug buzz is actually pretty nice, and it has boltbeam, download, flamethrower, and STAB U-turn. I bet it'll be a pretty popular scarf Volt Turn pokemon, since it's special attack and coverage can cause so many swap outs. It will also make a good specs wall breaker. Flamethrower especially separates it from Porgyon-Z, since it allows it to attack the many OU steel types and also break the JelliThorn core. It's actually a lot like Hydreigon now that I think about it.
What does that have to do with anything?But we already have HP rock VolcI'm expecting to see it run BoltBeam, U-turn, Bug Buzz, and Flamethrower. That's too much competition for a moveslot, and power/coverage will usually overrule luring out Volcarona. It's probably going to be pretty rare, but it does sound viable if your team struggles with Volc.Thing is, this is the kind of thing that people will make sets to counter. HP Rock Genesect will probably become pretty common. Granted, it won't then be as effective against other things, but it's one to watch out for...

Don't let my post count fool you. I've been around Serebii for a loooong time now. I'm just mostly active in the guild sections these days.
Many Pokémon will also adjust to Genesect by changing some IV's around so download will raise Attack > Special Attack; since most Genesect will be Special > Physical.
I think Rotom-H will get a raise in usage. Resisting most of the moves Genesect will be using. Having a nice typing in Fire/Electric, it'll be resisting Bug, Ice, Fire, Electric, Steel, Grass, and levitating above Ground moves.
Goodbye friends. My Pokémon drive is reaching zero, so I'm gonna go do other stuffs. Love you all. c:
He probably will be an uber, or at least an OU, cuz of it's stats: decent speed/ good typing, very nice mixed attacking stats, and his movepool is pretty good to
Genesect gets Drain Punch as well, so he gets better recovery.
I use genesect in dw a lot. I know him well and my set won't change and it won't go out of style.

The ev's give me enough power to put a mojor dent in my opponent no matter what my download boost is. Pretty standard coverage. I find scarf is best because it lets me outspeed threats. And u-turn is a must.

Genesect is imminent ~ Being officially released starting August 11th! Finally the days are upon us when Genesect will be allowed to roam the standard OU metagame. Will it wreak havok, or be such a let down it goes NU? Any more thoughts on Genesect's position in the standard OU metagame soon to come?

Naw. UU isn't really where it belongs. Genesect really has two and a half things that make it a stay-put in OU:
1) A movepool that is ridiculously diverse. Between Bug Buzz, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Giga Drain, Flash Cannon, Energy Ball, Thunder Wave, and Rock Polish, he has a humongous advantage in coverage that can really make opponents think twice about switching in a check to it.
2) Download. Literally, this makes it a ridiculously good Wallbreaker. By switching it in to Ferrothorn, Skarmory, Forretress, Gliscor, etc. It gains an auto- 1.5x boost.
3) Its typing can afford it an easy time to switch in and begin to hit things with its massive coverage.

^Pretty much that.
It really doesn't make sense to theorymon about where Genesect will end up when we have seen how it has functioned in the Dream World OU environment before. Last I checked, it was around #3 in the DW OU usage stats, so by the look of it, it'll be a very solid OU when it's finally released. There's no way that it's going to drop to NU; heck, it would take an act of God for this thing to drop to UU. It has great typing, decent bulk, Download for an instant power boost, and fantastic special coverage. The only real downsides are its small physical movepool (all it really needs is U-turn, though) and its trollish base 99 speed stat. It'll probably be a very solid member of VoltTurn teams, especially with the popular and effective Scarf set.
I am looking forward as well to create a VoltTurn core using it. Download honestly is a crazy good ability for it to have, with its great stats for being a Mix attacker and the fact that it STAB's U-turn. A Special choice scarf set w/ U turn / Ice Beam / Thunderbolt / [ Flamethrower, Bug Buzz, other filler ] is going to be great to use. I really wish I had gotten into DW so that I could have used it earlier but I just never really did.
