RIP Battling Academy, even though I just joined.
Memories are eternal.
RIP Toothpaste Clan. You kept my teeth clean.
Dental hygiene is eternal.
RIP Survival Island. Global warming drowned us all.
Survival isn't eternal
I think it might even be UU. I certaintly dont like slow pokemon. Will it have something like Agility?

I'd like to add that Specially Defensive Jirachi is a good counter to Genesect. It is only 3HKO'd even after rocks and can Paraflinch or try to KO it with Fire Punch which OHKO's 50% of the time with rocks on the standard specially defensive set.
Speed isn't a problem.
Updating the Checks and Counters list with :
Chansey - Eviolite Chansey fears absolutely nothing from Genesect. It's U-turn will be laughed at and obviously any Special move will as well. Lacking recovery, Genesect will lose health and go down fast from Seismic Toss, or can be severly crippled by a T-Wave.
Chandelure - Chandelure really doesn't fear anything Genesect will carry. It can also threaten it with an extremely powerful STAB Fire move.
I think for the counters list Blissey ought to be considered, for essentially the same reasons as Chansey. Even with the specs set, it still would only 4HKO, while U-Turn does only about 30%, which can be immediately Soft Boiled off. Special moves obviously will do nothing worthwhile to Blissey, while it can T-Wave then Flamethrower Genesect.
Thinking about it, it could be a great partner for any physical sweeper. I can't think of a single physical or mixed wall that can stop it, making it perfect for clearing the way for, say, Terrakion.
Genesect will be a Scarf dick if it's OU. I'm more into the other 2, as Keldeo is a Special Terrakion while Pirquette Meloetta is a faster Terrakion (by far)
And you're probably better off using a different set up sweeper then Meloetta, since they can get more of a boost in one turn.Problem with Pira~~~~ not even gonna try, Meloetta is that you have to set up with a move, which limits your movepool and well obv, you have to take the turn to set up. I think Keldeo will be cool as well, but I definetly think Genesect will be a big threat.
ya, even though you have to use Relic Song for a turn, that's why ou switch it to say a fighting type the will most likely switch. better hope a ghost doesnt come out though
So umm... Mixed/Physical anyone?
JUST GOING TO HIT CHU HARD.
Genesect (Hasty/ Naive)
Item: Focus Sash/Life Orb
EV Spread: 252 Atk, 252 Spd, 4 Sp. Atk/HP
-Self Destruct (ONLY USE ON FOCUS SASH!) or Tri Attack/ Hidden Power Water
-Shadow Claw/Ice Beam
-Rock Polish/Flame Charge
So, ummm.... how about a mixed or physical Genesect? I mean, he has potential. Rock Polish is there to boost some speed. While you could use Flame charge to boost speed while hitting. X-Scissor is mixed/physical Genesect's main stab. Self Destruct is to EXPLODE when your at 1 HP or low HP (But fire types are mostly going to switch in so you'll be at 1 hp more often.) Tri Attack is to utilize a sp. attack boost, while Hidden Power Water will prevent Steel and Fire from ruining your party. Shadow Claw is there if you have Tri Attack/ Self Destruct, since it gets rid of pesky ghost types, while Ice Beam covers Flying, Ground, and rarely seen running into genesect grass types, and Dragon types!
So yeah.... I TRIED AT LEAST.
are you guys sure he wont be an Uber? I think he just may become :/ Excellent typing, amazing mixed attacking stats, decent speed.
Nah, he's made quick work of from Quiver Dancing Volcarona, who is an OU resident, right? Volcarona resists mostly all of Genesect's moves and some of his moves just do some damage. The only thing that can save Genesect is if he is carrying HP Rock or Water. Might as well add that to a counter. Yes or nah?
Spoiler:- ΩRαS Shinies:
I doubt he'll even settle in OU with his typing.

Hey Serebii, how you doing? Not sure how many of you guys from way back are out there, but just to let you know that I'm back, though I'm not sure how regularly I'll be on. Thanks for everything, and I hope I can continue to enjoy my time here!
