  1. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer: Monotype Edition

    The problem is Game Freak seem obsessed with making slow bulky Ice types, and they just don't work. Ice is the glass cannon type, yet so many Ice-types are defensively focused. If there were more fast, powerful Ice types it would be a lot better. But alas... Why is Armaldo considered so good on...
  2. All type Terrain [Stage 3: Abilities]

    They must be B rank or below on the OU viability ranking thread. Edit: my nominations. Elevated Terrain Name: Weightless Effect: User gains +2 Speed and weight is halved during Elevated Terrain Pokemon: Staraptor, Togekiss (instead of Hustle), Toucannon (instead of Keen Eye) Competitive Use...
  3. Usage-Based Tier Update for January 2018

    I never said it was good - just that it was better than Blastoise.
  4. Project SM PU Victim of the Week [Week 10: CM Spiritomb]

    Granbull as a counter Granbull @ Choice Band Ability: Intimidate EVs: 212 HP / 252 Atk / 44 Spe Adamant nature - Play Rough - Earthquake - Fire punch - Close Combat Survives any attack and 1HKOes with Play Rough. Calcs: +1 0 SpA Spiritomb Dark Pulse vs 212 HP / 0 SpD Granbull: 91-108...
  5. Resource RU Analyses Discussion Thread

    Personally I feel the Donphan analysis needs to be reworded. I think the set itself is fine, but it's overall a poor Pokemon in RU, and the analysis makes out that it's good. Probably why it has way higher usage than it realistically should. Also, I feel that Stealth Rock should be slashed on...
  6. Usage-Based Tier Update for January 2018

    True the low RU ladder is terrible - second only to Ubers IMO. Is it that hard for people to read the analyses before plunking unviable stuff on their team?
  7. Resource RU Viability Rankings - V2

    Life Orb is better - there are other Pokemon that need the Z move more, and thanks to Drain Punch the recoil isn't too big of a deal. Z moves (apart from Icium) don't really help it beat anything it otherwise couldn't. I wouldn't deny that it's overall mediocre but saying it loses to Milotic is...
  8. Resource RU Viability Rankings - V2

    Brilliant rebuttal. Sarcasm aside, an unboosted Gunk Shot comes close to a 2HKO, so to avoid Toxicroak powering through it it will need to use recover. This gives Croak the opportunity to use SD and then OHKO next turn with Gunk Shot.
  9. Usage-Based Tier Update for January 2018

    Stuff I'd like to drop. Mew: Come on people, there are better defensive and offensive Defoggers than Mew - Gliscor, Landorus-T, Zapdos, Latio/as - let Mew fall to UU, it'll be so much better there. Arcanine: Why are people still using this thing? Rotom-H can run better defensive sets, while...
  10. Resource SM RU Simple Questions, Simple Answers

    Is SD RestTalk Escavalier still viable? And what would be some good teammates for it if it were?
  11. np: USUM UU Stage 6 - Chanel (Ninetales-Alola banned, see post 19)

    People are talking about Specs Gengar, and rightly so it's a great set, but my personal favourite set is: Gengar @ Black Sludge Ability: Cursed Body EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature - Taunt - Will-O-Wisp - Hex - Focus Blast Taunt shuts down weak walls, while Will-O-Wisp cripples...
  12. Metagame Shared Power [NP Stage 1: U-Rite]

    Simple isn't shared. I think that's for the best it was quite OP.
  13. All type Terrain [Stage 3: Abilities]

    We have already chosen the Terrains for each type - now we are creating abilities that interact with said Terrains (like Grass Pelt and Surge Surfer).
