      Thoughts on SuMo with Aegi gone? Probably quitting this gen after a bit I can't deal with another ORAS but with more power creeping shit.

        you're right, the feeling of the game being "matchup based" is the whole reason I stopped playing. I think I'll play until I get bored, and do some writing on the nature of what it means for a metagame to be "matchup based". I'veb een laddering these past couple days with a two teams. heatran / aegis / rotom-w / lando-t / lele / zam and pheromosa / aegislash / bisharp / venusaur / greninja / lando-i. I only played about 40 matches I guess, but idk, I always got the feeling that all of my wins and losses were just me being outplayed, or outplaying the opponent. Whenever I was in a good match it felt like both my team and the opponent's team could reasonably cover everything, and it was just up to skill. It felt like a healthy metagame to me.. we'll see where it goes I guess.

        Agreed, I'll gladly help you out on the writing primarily with replays if I can. I've been laddering with Pokemon I found underrated to prove that diversity in the metagame is still plausible, mainly Infernape, Gliscor, and I made some teams featuring Amoonguss, Lycanroc, and such. It all failed though because I couldn't stop the quickban though.

        I quit during most of ORAS but it took until Aegislash came back to realize what ORAS lacked. Teambuilding was actually fun and I felt the thrill of being able to outplay my opponent to get through with my gameplan like the days of DPP when you don't have 20+ mons that honestly force you to run a specific Pokemon or your ass gets dropped. (Bisharp Manaphy Thundurus M-Lopunny Mega Medicham M-Scizor M-Diancie are just the ones on the top of my head) Was extremely unfun.

      not worth me making a post on the thread, but Keldeo actually is booty, which is fine because that Pokemon pre gen 5 would honestly be considered a very busted mon.

      pretty hyped that Infernape is a bit better than Keldeo rn with all the bug and steels running in the meta, also u-turn to dug is based.

        Keldeo being booty is probably hyperbole haha but it's definitely noticably worse this meta

        Yeah and Tapu Bulu too. RIP Keldeo. Fire Blast / Close Combat / Thunderpunch Infernape to the rescue.

        Yea I typically run Fire Blast / CC / TPunch / Gunk Shot or U-Turn.

        Trying to create the best spread for it. I know for gen 6 the best was 112 Att / 204 SpA / 208 Speed but idk what to do with the spread rn

        The depressing part is that Wobb wasn't even the issue but he became collateral damage over people's loathing of Gothitelle.

      There once was a man named Ash
      Whose plays were so fucking cash
      He left for a while

        Doubt it. Pokemon is too flawed, there are simply too many different viable Pokemon and movesets to possibly build a team that could let you win every game with cunning and wit.

        If OU were up to me I'd ban everything in sight until it was /actually/ balanced.
