      hey alba, just a suggestion, but maybe for underdog project you could also include some d ranks for discussion? most of the people here have probably never used outclassed stuff like drapion or snorlax, so i guess discussion would be limited, but pokes like honchkrow or chandelure are more viable. just a thought tho

        That actually seems like a pretty good idea, I'll probably do that. Thanks!

        I'm not actually a mod anywhere anymore. I'm a global voice, a lobby driver, and an OU RO. And you need to be a global mod to get badged.

      on Feraligatr wip, what should be the last move in the set other than Waterfall, DD, and Crunch/Superpower? Or should I just split the two?
      1. Albacore
        Albacore
        I would have Crunch / Ice Punch on the 3rd slot and Superpower / EQ / Ice Punch on the 4th slot but that's just me, you should probably ask a QC member for the details
        Mar 13, 2015

        Okay, I was wondering iif I should even keep Ice Punch. Editing it now.

      I do not agree that RP is Diancie's best set, I've been advocating this since early October when I was the only one using it and everyone considered it a gimmick or the poorest choice. RP minimizes too much MDiancie's presence in-game since most builds remove speed EVs in favor of "bulk" which unfortunately takes too much damage in the process, worse yet she lacks high BP moves to fully exploit it.
      1. Machi
        Machi
        I do feel Protect + 3 Attacks is her best set since you immediately gain the benefit of post-mega without taking damage in the process, and more importantly allows you to actually exploit choice users that often come in to revenge MDiancie. Best part is it often lures things like Bisharp/Heatran/Keldeo (Specs) variants into staying in and having to take the MB/EP as a result.

        Hm, thanks very much for the insight! I've been using Protect a bit recently and I like it a lot more than RP/CM so yeah, I really don't think it's the best set either

        Be sure to invest in some Atk EVs so you can smack those annoying MVenus or Clefable that try to switch in with impunity. Not that much usually 40 or so is good so you can deal usually in the 40% range.
