    USUM UU Viability Ranking Thread V2

    As much as I don’t want to blow my own trumpet and I realise you also had a lot of stuff to factor in making this, perfectly valid, metagame relevant arguments for Salazzle and Kommo to raise were made in the last thread and there was a lack of coherent arguments raised. Could we either see...

    USUM Sample Teams

    You should include what Alolan Muk does for that team. Traits to emphasise would be a switch in to chandelure and a grounded poison to remove t spikes. I don’t really get how the metagame adapted that much better to the stall oosted by bugzi that it’s no longer fit to be a sample. It deals...

    2017/18 (Soccer) Football Thread

    The only reason I can think of is that it gives Barca the opportunity to rest Iniesta in the league, ensuring he’s 100% perfect for their CL games. They also have a long term view of him taking Iniesta’s creative mantle given that he’s 34 now and probably has at absolute best 3 years left...

    I think this is kind of unfair considering a fair few of them are also playing in SPL and, rightly so, their priorities are towards building for that and helping their teammates as best they can. This will happen with other tournaments throughout the season. Also how would you uphold the GXE...

    Can I ask why stuff is still being decided by council votes? I got the system straight after USM was released, and to a degree with the recent large tier shift, as these are situations in which quick and clear decisions are required to remove obviously broken elements from the tier which is the...

    Hi, we're paired for OST r1! I'm GMT+0, and can play starting from next Saturday, as I'm away on vacation all this week. On Saturdays I can usually play in my evenings (like 8PM onwards), Sundays I can play any reasonable time (10AM-8PM) and weekdays after work and before sleep (5:30PM-9:00PM)...

    Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon UU Viability Ranking

    Just to add to the above post and its relevance in the current metagame, due to blocking Gyro Ball, Bulletproof actually makes Kommo as solid an offensive switchin to Stakataka as anything. Losing Soundproof seems like it sucks, but in reality being able to check Stak definitely seems more...

    Try running a BD Azu alongside it, so then you can knock off on their switch to Alo, BD up and then force them into their unaware mon, which you can then also knock off. This should give you the progress you were after in this matchup. There are probably other ways but this was the first thing...

    I think people are overhyping how solid Marowak is as a defensive check to stuff. The typing+ability is amazing but the stats are garbo and that same typing means it’s vulnerable to every hazard and especially vulnerable to stealth rock. It also doesn’t really want to run Leftovers which...

    Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon UU Viability Ranking

    Talking of special poison sweepers, a nom of my own. I think Salazzle could definitely move on up, a one rank jump to B seems fine here, I could see it maybe in B+ but a small raise is fine for now. It’s a solid offensive Serperior check that also has some potential vs fatter builds due to its...

    SM UU Creative and Underrated Sets

    Chandelure (M) @ Firium Z Ability: Flame Body EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature - Fire Blast - Shadow Ball - Calm Mind - Substitute I’m hesitant to call this particularly creative but everyone uses Ghostium or Lefties so it’s underrated at the very least. This is a set I started using...

    UU Azumarill

    You could include in Other Options a Normalium Z set with Refresh in place of Rest in the Perish trapper set. This is essentially a one time full restore for Azu and allows it to bluff other sets while also not relying on Rest. It has a lot of drawbacks though such as using the Z move, no...
