      I was wondering if I could take over the "Viable Megas" thread. It hasn't been updated once, and nearly all the info in the OP is garbage.
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Yeah, go ahead.

      In the Deo-D/Aegis/Bisharp|Thund-I core, it says: "Thundurus is a perfect choice over Bisharp as a Defiant user and Defog punisher, and sports way better Speed than Thundurus" It should be Bisharp instead of that last "Thundurus", no?
      1. alexwolf

        Thx, will fix.

      Also Thundurus has a crippling Stealth Rock weakness which makes him worse than Heliolisk as a specs attacker. Manectric takes up a mega slot and doesnt hit as hard as a specs Heliolisk would.
    7. Cinco Swift
      Cinco Swift
      He .also has a better ovepool than Raikou as he can run Grass Knot and Hp ice at the same time while Raikou has to choose Hp ice or grass which means he can't kill gliscor and quagsire at the same time, 2 pokes which otherwise wall Raikou.
    8. Cinco Swift
      Cinco Swift
      Heliolisk is a super underrated poke with an incredible water immunity allowing him to check a great number of Water Pokemon such as Azumaril, Manahpy, and Suicune and Rotom-W. He's a great hit and run attacker by abusing specs and is better than any other electric type at this role. With Specs he hits harder than Manectric and Thundurus
    9. GloriousGore
      GloriousGore
      Hey AlexWolf, may I nominate Heliolisk for at least D Rank?
      It may seem garbage and all, but it actually has a tiny niche on rain teams as a formidable special attacker and unique coverage. It also has a good Speed tier and combined with decent Special Attack, the thing can actually do a thing or two to most stuff on OU bar the blobs.

        gonna post more later about it.

      How was his thread made first exactly? I posted mine Monday, if you look at his thread it shows Thursday. I may be wrong but just wondering.
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        You are right, i messed things up. Will talk with Monte Cristo about his thread and let you know.

      "is if you really like a very offensive-based metagame" yeah this basically i mainly play offense and my post is maybe biased from my experience which doesn't really help those that want a more defensive/slower meta. I've never really found the meta stale but the 50 50 aspect I can agree with.
      1. Knight of Cydonia
        Knight of Cydonia
        Seems like every match of mine has at least one coin toss that affects the outcome, its hard to know how to address this though without banning a lot of the current meta. Thanks for the long post though i enjoyed reading it

      2. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        You can have less 50 / 50 with more variety, which means less Speed ties and less formulaic builds / cores. And banning the Deos would definitely increase variety on offensive teams.

        Glad to hear you liked my post.

        In the future maybe, but for now focus on discussing the Pokemon i mentioned.

      Hey man, I was just wondering, do you and Nog discuss the viability ranking changes in a PM?
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Yeah.

        TRC
        Would you mind if I was added? I'd really like to be able to discuss the changes with the two of you and provide some input towards the viability rankings. I also believe that having a third person will be helpful, to tiebreak disputes and have someone else to post the changes and reasoning once in a while. I'm sure I
        Jun 29, 2014
      3. TRC
        TRC
        have the knowledge to make informed opinions on the ranking of Pokemon so I think that I'd definitely be helpful. I also think it's good for me to read through the discussion already in there for reference sake. Now you may want to discuss with Nog first, but if you'd be ok with having my input, I'd really appreciate it :]

      Was reading the Good Cores thread, and noticed that Mega Gyarados has an incorrect EV spread. The last 4 should go into Defense to give an odd HP value for SR damage.
      1. alexwolf
        alexwolf
        Thx, will correct.

        Also, Kyurem-B should be mentioned in the VenuTran core as a threat, as Teravolt Ice Beam and Earth Power fuck it up hard (especially the Sub set since it prevents Venu from using Sleep Powder or Leech Seed on Kyurem-B)

      Yoooo, just noticed that your Mega Gardevoir core mentions Megasaur as a good partner for them; maybe in an ideal world, eh?

      Hey alexwolf on the OU viability thread it links to the old VR thread. Was just wondering if it would be possible to now link it to the new VR thread considering the old one is locked now?

      Hello! Are we ever going to do it like the UU Viability Rankings where we go through by two or three Pokemon at a time and decide on a consensus of where "a and b" should be? (Also, congratulations!)

        For now not, and thx!
