    SM UU USUM UU Trick Room w/ Stakataka

    It's been a long time since I did one of these. Expect more in the future though :] USUM UU is probably my least favorite metagame at the moment for several reasons. Not going into details. So with the last tier shifts this New Year, UU got some amazing new pokemon to add to the already large...

    NP: NU Stage 0 (Beta) - Bring The Noize (Cofagrigus is Banned)

    I think the problem with Aurora Veil is the fact that removing it requires more specific teammates and or builds. Defog is not as common as it once was. I can sit down and look at this tier and name only a handful of (at the very minimum) "decent" defog users: Golbat, Prinplup, Skuntank...

    np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - The Robots - Metagrossite BANNED

    Okay, I only wanted to post 1 comment on this thread, but this is getting ridiculous now. You cannot use an argument about the megas that we do not have yet being able to balance out the metagame. Are we supposed to wait for months until the right mega stones are released to balance out the tier...

    np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - The Robots - Metagrossite BANNED

    So much has already been said about Mega Metagross. I will try to get reqs but I will say this much, I do not feel like Mega Metagross should be banned nor shouldn't be banned. I'm literally caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to Mega Metagross and the OU metagame. I feel that...

    SM UU Viability Ranking Thread

    I agree with Crawdaunt rising to B. Every time I see it in front of me, I start to look for counters. Then I realize they don't exist. Crawdaunt is a very frightening wallbreaker to say the least. It even has just enough physical bulk to take a neutral hit or two at most. Also, prior experience...

    M&M Mix and Mega Suspect #3: Pheromosa

    Yeah, I did notice a ton of shaymin while laddering both times. There's no true counter and it's just really annoying to face in general because it's a skymin. When you have about 190 special attack and STAB moves that never miss you have a recipe for ragequit

    M&M Mix and Mega Suspect #3: Pheromosa

    Alright, so I've never played this metagame a day in my life before now. I used a sample team from the forums and got reqs in a few hours. I feel like there's something else unhealthy for the metagame if it was that easy to just ladder up and get reqs without having prior knowledge of anything...

    My problem with Honchkrow right now, despite a majority of your comments holding some truth, is that it is incredibly hard to fit onto a team. It does hit like a truck, I know that from experience. It is pretty dandy anti-offense too. Keep in mind though that Honchkrow is weak to hazards, has...

    Tsareena should probably stay B- or B rank in my opinion. I've stopped running trop kick on it because it just doesn't do enough damage, even to things it's supposed to beat such as Keldeo or Krookodile. I've actually been running High Jump Kick over Trop Kick because the damage, STAB Trop Kick...

    Metagame Monotype Suspect: Medichamite

    I sincerely don't see the point in banning Mega Medicham this early. Yes it is shaking the metagame, but we also need to account for the fact that it was and is legal in ORAS monotype and used the same moveset then that it does now. Nothing about it has changed. In addition, SM gave every type...

    Metagame NP: SM RU Stage 0 (Beta): Green Light (Talonflame Banned)

    Isn't drizzle banned? I'd honestly be more surprised if Tornadus stayed with Kingdra in the tier due to prankster rain. I don't know. Kingdra is a 50/50 for me in all honesty. It's still probably too powerful to stay if there are solid rain setters for it.

    Metagame NP: SM RU Stage 0 (Beta): Green Light (Talonflame Banned)

    I feel like we should pay some serious attention* to Heracross, Cloyster, Gatr, Cresselia, Necrozma, and possibly Shaymin. Not that Durant and Espeon aren't complete monsters either. From experience, Feraligatr is just so threatening to deal with because of its good natural bulk and obscene...

    Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread

    Why not just suspect test Drifloon back into the metagame then? It doesn't hurt to get a vote for its return or continual ban does it? Also, my criticisms about porygon and cutiefly being banned might be controversial, but I at least want to bring some attention to it. My issues with Porygon...

    Resource LC SuMo Viability Rankings (updated @ post #204)

    The last two changes to LC have been really huge. Although I disagree with banning the two mons, Porygon and Cutiefly, rather than banning the moves that made them clearly overpowered in LC (In each case, they were the only pokemon in the entire LC metagame capable of learning...

    Metagame SM Monotype Metagame Discussion

    I'm very glad Tapu Lele was unanimously banned. On both Psychic and Fairy mono, it just had too much power and or the amount of support it put out was invaluable to the point of some teams just rarely running priority imo. In psychic terrain, the support psychic coverage gets can become a bit...

    Mega Sableye, Toxapex, Alolan Marowak, Bullet Punch on Scizor and Mega Meta, Amoongus, Mola, and possibly Doublade. But honestly, Pheromosa should be banned next. It puts too heavy of a strain on teambuilding and forces people to run specific pokemon with priority to revenge kill (even though it...

    Resource LC SuMo Viability Rankings (updated @ post #204)

    Cutiefly to S rank. Cutiefly is such a huge threat in LC for a good reason. Both its typing and access to quiver dance (and baton pass) make it a necessity for a team to handle just about. Cutiefly could easily move up because of how well it carries out its role on a team as either a sweeper or...
