im just curious so far I think excadrill and mega-metagross are the best but are there any other good anti-meta Pokemon ?

by
Wow this just reminded me that I haven't played anti-meta yet this gen. I'm gonna have to go do that ;~;
OU is currently dominated by mega Metagross (it even has "meta" in its name), so pretty much any good ground Pokemon (especially Landorus) holding a yache berry is anti-meta in OU.
Edit: Metagrossite was banned less than one hour after I posted this.
omg what, M-Gross is banned from OU? D:
Can we have this as one of those threads that are always allowed to be answered?

Why Explosion?
because Explosion is amazing. It punches holes and dents stuff it can't otherwise whilst keeping momentum and making RKing easier, making it a boon to offensive teams.

Ice plate sucks though. As common as Lando is having an item that only works against that one mon isn't great.
252 SpA Icicle Plate Landorus-Therian Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Landorus-Therian: 328-388 (102.8 - 121.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252 SpA Icicle Plate Landorus-Therian Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Zygarde: 284-336 (79.5 - 94.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

252 SpA Icicle Plate Landorus-Therian Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Salamence: 324-384 (97.8 - 116%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO

252 SpA Icicle Plate Landorus-Therian Hidden Power Ice vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Garchomp: 312-368 (87.1 - 102.7%) -- 18.8% chance to OHKO

252 SpA Icicle Plate Landorus-Therian Hidden Power Ice vs. 0 HP / 0 SpD Dugtrio: 182-216 (90.5 - 107.4%) -- 43.8% chance to OHKO

These are just a few calcs. Lando Explosion also has a very high chance to OHKO many OU threats which I don't feel like looking up. One I know off the top of my head is offensive latios, which would otherwise be guarenteed 3HKO'd by hp ice.
