      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?

        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.

        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)

        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

        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?
        Aug 21, 2014 at 10:04 PM
      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 at 9:11 PM
      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 ^^
      1. alexwolf

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

        Of course you can use it, but this doesn't change the fact that you are using a bad Pokemon. Bad Pokemon can do useful stuff too.

      I've been hearing from some people that if Aegislash does not get banned, it won't get tested again. Even if not so, by not banning it and potentially banking on waiting for all of the other tests to finish in a meta still undesirable because of Aegislash in the first place, you risk not having it retested because you weren't completely sure on its brokenness.
      1. TRC
        TRC
        By all means abstain if you want, but I can't bear to think that this long-time called for suspect might not get banned. Just my 2 cents.
        Jul 30, 2014
      2. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        It doesn't matter what a lot of people say, as long as we don't talk about the OU council. People can say anything to get what they want, and when a suspect is so hated, it's only logical that people will try to convince others to ban him at all costs.
        Jul 30, 2014
      3. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Just take a look at history. When Excadrill was first suspect tested in 5th gen, it stayed in OU with only a 40% of people voting him Uber. But in the end, he was banned. The same can easily happen with Aegislash, and i don't want to have regrets about banning non broken Pokemon, especially when none of the pro-ban arguments have really convinced me about Aegi's impact on the metagame.

      and a bit of hp(which may or may not matter depending on the context of the battle)? If substitute isn't going to be replaced with another move it could at least be slashed with another move(sacred sword to beat bisharp for example) although that depends on aegislash getting banned or not
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Sub + King's Shield allows Aegislash to kill its foes after it has successfully Toxic'ed them. For example, use Toxic as Landorus-T comes in, and the next time you can kill it by alternating between Sub and King's Shield. Also, next time you want to start a large conversation, send me a PM.
        Jul 24, 2014
    24. Breloom2088
      Breloom2088
      but (this post picks up where the last one started) I don't see many times where sub is useful. If subbing on the mandibuzz switch-in means that taunt mandibuzz can beat it then sub is useless against mandibuzz. Furthermore, why can't aegislash just toxic things on the switch-in (too be continued)
    25. Breloom2088
      Breloom2088
      Mandibuzz still doesn't counter aegislash because aegislash can just use toxic on the switch-in. This got me thinking about why aegislash needs to run substitute in the first place. I believe I understand the basic concept(with a substitute up prediction becomes nearly non-existent) too be continued
