    Something that needs discussion is Mew's sets.

    Is there anything else that should be listed as sets? What order should they be in? Should there be any changes to the existing sets?

    My opinion on the order is SD > Reflect > Transform > Mixed but still very close in strength to eachother, but does anyone disagree with that?

    Hmm, on the first set, imo Explosion can be slashed after Softboiled as well maybe. Also I don't think BS should be slashed on its own, like you could easily prefer EQ for the lack of para, and if you're running mono coverage I don't think ground is substantially worse than normal.

    Is now the right time to say that I think Lutrew is a bad set? It practically does nothing on its own and is almost totally dependent on the opponent when it comes to actually accomplishing anything. This is compounded by the fact that its multi-turn setup is a dead giveaway, giving the opponent all the time in the world to switch into something that is less threatening for Mew to transform into. Imo it's a nice gimmick to surprise unsuspecting players, but it's a well known set at this point and I don't really think it's effective against anyone who knows it. Also now we have GGMew, which accomplishes similar things but is actually a threat offensively.

    Should TWave+SD go somewhere? I'm not too familiar with, I think I used it once in that Mewbers tour we had but I think it could be good.

    Also I'm sceptical on the merits of mixed Mew. I don't see how it has more immediate threat other than the potential for freeze, since base 100 special is far from awe-inspiring and a lot of the pokemon in the tier are neutral to ice attacks

    Fire Blast Slashed with Thunder Wave on Lutrew maybe? Explosion might be good with Twave support.

    Could even Swords Dance, Thunder Wave, Explosion, Body Slam/Earthquake to try to trap Mew into trading even. Guaranteed para being more secure.
