:sv/Meowstic-M:
Catastrophic
[OVERVIEW]
Despite Meowstic-M's good Speed and decent support movepool, the rest of its stats are poor, leaving it no choice but to be a dual screens lead. As a hyper offense lead, though, Uxie outclasses Meowstick-M due to being bulkier and having a much better movepool, boasting options like Stealth Rock and Knock Off. Dual screens playstyles themselves are not viable due to Light Clay's ban, making Meowstic-M less viable as a hyper offense lead.

Meowstic-M aims to set up dual screens and force switches with Yawn. Dual screens playstyles themselves are not reliable due to Light Clay's ban, but Uxie is a superior option due to having the same traits but better, boasting options like Stealth Rock and Knock Off and having higher bulk.

Meowstic-M aims to set up dual screens and force switches with Yawn. However, Meowstic-M's lack of utility outside of setting up screens and the archetype being poor in the first place means that Meowstic-M is a poor choice as an offensive supporter. just say screen suck because there is no light clay, the lack of utility outside dual screen is weird when dual screen support is already huge utility on its own Uxie is a superior option due to having the same things have but better, boasting options like Stealth Rock and Knock Off, having higher bulk, and can clean late-game with Nasty Plot. the late game cleaning part is irrelevant as we are comparing uxie as a lead for ho.

As a hyper offense lead, though, Uxie outclasses Meowstick-M due to being bulkier and has having a much better movepool, boasting options like Stealth Rock and Knock Off, and is bulkier. (more optional but it's good if you more directly say it's outclassed by uxie because rn it's implied but not fully there) Dual screens playstyles themselves are not viable due to the Light Clay's ban, making it further unwanted Meowstic-M less viable as a hyper offense lead.
