      Yo, thoughts on Shiinotic for Stall?
      1. Ajwf
        Ajwf
        Alright so actually pinned this thing as something to pay attention early on. Long and short, probably not going to have a niche on stall. The real reason for it is overall it tries to be amoongus and lacks the key features (rengerator). It's slightly better on the spdef side I think but worse physically and with sustain. Typing is actually disadvantageous because you lose all semblance of Azumarill for... Honestly, I don't know. It should be good vs stuff like Tapu Koko and Circuitry but Koko's terrain makes him immune to spore and ergo Decidueye is the better grass there.

        Also in straight up stats and 50% recovery moves, it loses to decidueye both physically (by a bit) and specially (by a bigger bit). Importantly, decidueye's typing is better, he has more useful utility (spore vs defog, uturn and trap) and is a physical attacker, which is something stall lacks.

        The niche you'd look is something like Garchomp or Araquanid, Gastrodon and TTar. The issue is, Chomp isn't hard to cover, the next two are UU and the fourth counters you due to your bad defense and inability to have a weather-independent heal move.

        None of this helps that another grass got released this gen (Tapu Bulu) who has better stats, effective healing, covers all the same stuff and is an offensive monster. Yeah it lacks utility but it kinda gives stall the power to not be passive.

        I think there may be metas where it has a niche but the grasses this gen are Tangrowth, Decidueye, venu-m, tapu bulu and Amoongus.

      Hello, I'm AjTheEpic. I use lots of stall and shittalk inexperienced WCOP players with my "because I can" logic. If you do not repost this to 10 other places, I will fly into your teambuilder and put Porygon2 on all of your teams.

        I'll try. I'll search for you when I'm up, but if this match ends up not mattering (aka my team continues to lose), I'm just going to give it to you by default so we don't have to bend over backwards for this.

        So what we're hoping is for people to build in using the same similar form (Poli+Bulky SS+SpdefDrag+Drag catch) and see if they get similar results in the kind of power. We more are looking for opinions/observations of results when using the team.

        I mean, I generally believe in lefter economic policies, but what the DNC did was pure criminal in the primary. The unfortunate part is it seems there are no repercussions for such actions such as google's censorship or the fraud in elections.

        Hey - sorry to nitpick, but Nicae gave you 1/2 on slowking, so you should change the title to reflect that, letting other GP member know that its ready for the last check.

      Sorry couldn't reply to the conversation, but yeah I did tag the people. You lost the coin flip against FLCL, thats why you weren't tagged
      1. Ajwf

        You didn't tag us at the beginning of the round is the issue. A full quarter of the semi-final round wasn't active at all... That should be a tipoff that word didn't get out.

      Hey man, I don't know you, but I need your help. A good friend of mine, Subject 18, really wants to learn stall, and I tried to direct him to you. Unfortunately, he could not suck his pride to do so. Therefore, I implore you to approach him, asking to help. I truly believe you will be able to get through to him. Thanks in advance n_n!
      1. Ajwf
        Ajwf
        I don't think it's sub18 has too much pride to ask for help, we just have our differences and disagree often. I'd help, but there are a bunch of other people who he might prefer talking to.

        Ah man, thats too bad. I think your a really good player, and could really help him rekindle his interest in Pokemon. Especially since you move away from traditional, cookie-cutter teams with amazing innovation. I hope you can find it in your heart to try again with Subject, since I truly believe that under your mentorship, he will blossom.

    Hello. I'm Aj, a Polish/Italian/Englishman with more class than the Queen, God bless her merry soul. I enjoy many things in life, such as reading Shakespeare's sonnets, writing epic poetry and occasionally sharing a drink with Morgan Freeman.

    If I had to name the most intriguing person I've ever met, I'd name myself. Steven Hawking is a close second. I once went to the flea market with nothing but a black pen and two dollars. I returned with $1,000, a blue pen and goldfish.

    If there is one thing in life I regret, it is not knowing the true meaning of that word. But this is just an opinion of what I'd assume I'd regret... And finally, in my obituary, it will be mentioned that my favorite snack was the skin of a watermelon.
