stopping by to provoke some thinking about weav. gen8 was a hard hit removing suit and punishment from it but now the meta is different. lando-i and zygarde dominate, pex fell off in usage and while still dominant magma trap tran is back. garchomp, dnite and landorus-t fall to it, slowbro is a prefered bulky water atm, tornadus-t is food, fini hates being knock offed and overall the megas who were able to block knock offs like scizor-mega haven't returned.
kyurem-b is the prefered offensive ice-type yet it might not stay for long. weav knock hurts melmetal a lot more than a chip-fusion bolt.
It's not going to be as good as in oras and it won't be metagame defining. But it might be back
