      def have faced bp team and it's def weak to those threats if you actually play decently.. whatever it's not really worth arguing and not derailing thread anymore

        Amonguss can get trapped very easily as it switches into Smeargle, and Bisharp needs to win too many 50-50s to be called a reliable answer. I would say that the BP team has the upper hand against those threats, but whatever, as you said it's a minor point and not worth talking about anyway. However, the team is effective and it does work.

      I said that Dugtrio support to mega Charizard x is as useful as tar support to a sand team. Sorry I worded it weird. But I didn't oversell. It's complete ass outside of that which is why I only ranked it for c-

      just wanted to say that mienshao is viable in ou now that aegi is gone. i can justify it because it has a niche in the form of anti-leading the entire ou meta(bar terrak) via fake out+hjk. even garchomp has a good chance to get 2hkod with fake out+hjk which gives u a pretty big adv.

        easily through team support, but more importantly its the only mon with hail. hail is seen as the worst type of weather compared to all the others, but hail can also be seen as a neutral weather. this means it can neutralize all the other types of weather(more so rain and sand since

        those actually have abusers) with the added benefit of aboma threatening those weather starters and that can give you a pretty good adv agnst them. cons are that it is slow with a ton a weaknesses but thats rly it. while this mon does need a good amount of support to function in ou, no other mon can boast the niche it has.

      hey man, do you have a mega zam team you think you can PM me? i haven't used it that much, and i'd like to test it with a good team since i dont think ive ever built around it
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        I don't have a team with it, i mostly saw it used against me on the ladder. I want to build one though, so when i do i will PM it to you.

      hello alexwolf, i wanted to ask you something about Mawile. obviously it's gonna plummet now, but how long will it take for it to get to NU?

      2. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Tbh i am not sure how this would work, but i think that the standard procedure is to wait 1 whole year, though that would be absurd to happen for Mawile. Imo, it would be better just to drop it to NU directly, and if it ends up getting enough use to go in a higher tier then no harm done.

        LustrousPalkia
        Oh... so who should I ask/mention this to, because it's clear that it's not going to get usage anywhere else (it's kindof really really bad, but not so bad it's unusable in NU)
        Aug 26, 2014

        I think that Haunter should know how those things go, but if he doesn't then go to the NU leader, Raseri.

      Hey alexwolf. I have an idea for the viability ranking thread. The things to discuss section is much bigger than usual which is leading to extremely diorganized discussion. Listing 5 mons from that list and allowing clean discussion can give us the best result and he most organized discussion.
      1. Vertex
        Vertex
        For example, we start talking about mega Heracross, Alakazam, MDactyl, mvenu, and mega tar first and move to a new set of mons.

      I understand where you're coming from. But sometimes how you say something is just as important as what you're saying. I just hope the other member did not take it offensively. Likewise, there has been other issues between members where people have been disrespectful. I just hope this is addressed. And I'm glad they have included a posting etiquette section.

        Thanks for letting me know. I think I remember you from the OU Absol thread. I feel it's a very underrated Mega. Heard it might be moving down to C rank. Kind of a shame, but Mach Punch and E-Speed hold it back. What do you think?

      3. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        I think that it should drop. Too frail, can't switch into most SR setters to take advantage of Magic Bounce, too slow against offensive teams before setting up, and not that strong too. It also has big problems with Azumarill and Keldeo, two S rank threats, and Mega Char X and Y can also wall it with bulky spreads.

      just thought I'd tell you that your hawlucha+luc team is sht on by latis :x. i'm not sure how to fix that with the mons u already have so you might want to reconsider your team composition :0

        I'm not knocking scarf rotom, you can alternate between scarf , bulky or even a combination of the two and see which performs the best. As far as the changes go, I think its a step in the right direction. Gard can even switch in on unmegaed manec and trace its lightningrod as that also runs over your team. Same goes with swift swimmers so
        Aug 21, 2014
      3. ben gay
        ben gay
        yeah, gard covers alot of mons defensively and utility wise for this team. I can't make the best rate since I'm just skimming thru it but just test more. If you find any huge weaknesses just act on them and see what else you can do to fix em n_n

        Sorry guys, i had already promised this thread to unfixable before a few weeks and i forgot about it. If you want you can co-host it, having multiple guys on a project always helps (one can count the votes, the other update the OP, etc).

      Yo, given that Mega Mence is a thing, should we edit my old thread and unlock it (only once we get stats, of course), or do you think a new thread is in order?
      1. alexwolf

        No thread for Salemence yet, we know nothing about its Mega Evo other than the ability.

      Can we have a Salamence thread in OU? It's not like it is gonna fall to UU and there is a mega coming up ^^

        Not yet, as we don't know the stats of Mega Salamence, which is pretty important.
