    Hmmm I feel like he could be UU. tbh I don't see him a whole lot. I personally like Donphan (for some teams) but he does seem more like a UU pokemon to me. I actually forgot he was OU before you wrote this xD

    Actually Donphan is used on a decent ammount of teams in OU so I wouldn't imagine that he would/could be UU anytime soon. Unless they make a better Dragon Check/Defensive Spinner.

    Defensive spinner yes, but I feel like there are many better dragon checks than Donphan. I guess I must just not run into it very much xD But yeah, any fast ice type or pokemon with ice beam (within reason obviously) seem to counter dragons pretty well, as well as other dragons who've boosted, things like Gyarados on a DD and with Ice Fang, and also anything bulky that can take a hit, then hit back hard or super effective (like my Conkeldurr currently) as well as steel types like ferrothorn or skarmory. Donphan is cool and as I said I like it, but it pretty much can't take a special hit, which things like the Latis dish out, as well as like those Hurricane Dnites or Fire Blast from Salamence. and it seems like it would take pretty good damage from something that's boosted once or twice.

    All in all, I don't really consider Donphan a dragon counter, I usually just put ice shard on for priority and coverage and if a dragon happens to get in the way then it's even better xD (this is all my opinion of course, and not fact)

    If it does, it'll plummet to RU within weeks. Ironically enough, outside of Dragon hunting, Donphan is outclassed by almost every other common spinner up until NU

    Is it really that good at Dragons? Whenever I have one on my team, it rarely deals with them :O

    I think you all forget how bulky Donphan is. Sure it doesn't have recovery, but it's one of the few pokes that can actually take both of Terrakions STAB attacks. Also Donphan used to be UU then rose up to OU. Underestimate it at your own peril. I don't see it dropping down to UU though

    Random thought:

    Skarmory's best moveset. Anyone have any thoughts on that?

    well every time he seems to get on (according to others) is aftr im offline and vice versa, plus a 3 day gap means the winner will be playing like 3 players in a row to catch up.

    No offense but...what?

    Donphan is great in UU because he can check Flygon and Darmanitan with his excellent Defensive stats. Plus he has a base 120 attack and STAB earthquake, which is excellent. He's basically a poor man's Excadrill, and would be the best spinner in UU. Blastoise is worse defensively, although his typing is kinda nice, and Hitmontop serves a more offensive spinner role.

    EDIT:
    ALSO, best up until NU? Cryrogonal, Sandslash, Kabutops, Hitmonchan, Claydol and Hitmonlee (i.e all the RU spinners) are all awful at spinning, although in Cryrogonal's case its only because of the SR weakness, and I guess Kabutops and Hitmonchan do an okay job. Donphan outclasses them all by a large margin though, especially Sandslash, who is the most popular spinner in RU.

    Agreed. Donphan is a pile of poo. It doesn't deserve to be OU, in fact it is a disgrace to the move rapid spin. It should cease existing or give its rapid spin to something decent, like samurott. Pah.

    For spinning, forretress is spin blocked often, sub disable gengar or hp fire getting round gyro ball and bulky ghosts laughing, but forrie has massive hazards. starmie is only blocked by spec def susclops and jellicent really, but donphan can do nothing to alot of spin blockers, and has only rocks not triple hazards, no massive attack move pool/speed/recovery, but he does have 1 use. F.E.A.R phan. thats right. sr/ENDEAVOUR/ICE SHARD/ earth quake. try it. be a man.

    How Psycho has it set up currently is that despite the fact that your contract is expired, you still belong to whatever team you were previously signed to, so they can either try and sell you or renew your contract (I guess unless you just quit your team lol. In which case I'm pretty sure you can do that).

    You're not laddering enough/high enough. It still wreaks havoc in rain and is still kinda broken. People want it suspect tested next round on Smogon, along with Gene and Deoxys-D
