    This is even more helpful than I could have imagined. Everything is explained perfectly. I cant wait for the rest.
    Just a small question. How would IVs factor in? If for example my Draug is +atk/-spd he would then behave as a melee tank like Alphonse?

    I like what you said about the tier list too. So many low tier characters with good IVs can go a long way...except Odin :)

    Hi guys, new update to the guide. Attacker/Speedster archetypes are in, and a relatively shorter mention on brave users.

    Coming up next will be Jack-of-all-Trades, and how IVs can change archetypes. We don't always get the best IVs, but here, you may get to learn how to get the most out of units who do NOT have the oh so awesome +atk/+spd IVs that we always want. Instead of doing this "IV tier list", you will see what units are sensitive to what type of IVs, how that changes their archetypes, for better or for worse, and how differently you build the same unit with different IVs. Some subpar IVs can be salvaged, and some are just shit.

    @xchan, yes a +atk/-spd Draug changes archetype from fast tank to melee tank. So instead of looking at the fast tank section to build your Draug, you look at the melee tank section. If in doubt of your unit archetype, just look at the stat distribution guideline for the archetype and find the one that fits while comparing to the average stat table.

    Due to a few requests from reddit...I'm necroing reviving this to note that I am updating this guide for 2018. Been sidetracked for so long *sigh*.

    Going to bump this up to point out I've made some updates to include new units, and an entire new section for Unit building is halfway there, including "how to choose your pokemon IVs and decide whats best".
