    I don't really care about Skarmory to be honest, it's a Pokemon I've neither used nor seen used very often in the past few months, but I don't think access to Whirlwind is enough of a reason to move Skarmory up or even justify it keeping its current rank especially when a lot of Skarm sets don't...

    I'm aware, the point is that regular Garchomp still kills Skarmory, so this isn't exactly an argument in favor of Mega Garchomp. Given the fact that you've moved the goalposts to Celesteela I'm going to assume you concede this. You also still haven't addressed what exactly has changed to...

    Fire Blast Mega Garchomp has existed since Gen 6. Full physical variants of Garchomp have been pretty much hard countered by Skarmory since it released. Nothing has changed recently to warrant Mega Garchomp rising, and the ability to somewhat beat a few of its base form's checks is vastly...

    The C ranks could do with a major cleanup in my opinion, I'm gonna go ahead and toss a few noms out now. Que the people crawling out of the woodwork to defend their favorite super niche shitmon. We'll start with my favorite super niche shitmon, actually. Azelf C- -> UR In case you couldn't...

    Surprised nobody touched this, but oh well, I'll take the bait. Fell Stinger is not at all necessary on Qwilfish, in fact I'll go a step farther and say it's probably not even viable, although I admit fairly limited experience with it. That being said, the amount of times you find yourself in a...

    Rotom-Wash (Revamp)

    An offensive set with Waterium-Z could be mentioned in OO instead of the main set, I know it's received some positive feedback in metagame discussion but I don't really think it deserves its own set yet, being a relatively unexplored set. I see absolutely no reason to run Waterium-Z on a...

    252 SpA Charizard-Mega-Y Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Thick Fat Venusaur-Mega in Sun: 200-236 (54.9 - 64.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO But yeah, Charizard Y is hot garbage in a metagame where it gets hard countered by one of the best Pokemon in the tier and no longer has its 3-headed cancer cell...

    This isn't entirely true, this is a Kartana set I've had a degree of success with in the past. It's not anything revolutionary or amazing but it does offer fantastic role compression for teams that could appreciate Defog but don't absolutely NEED it. Kartana @ Darkinium-Z Jolly - Beast Boost...

    Empoleon can check Naga easily... using a normal Empoleon set with Ice Beam. This abomination you created is unecessary. Also don't listen to the OU room. It's generally unwise to take advice from a group of people who don't feel the need to provide any evidence or reasoning to back up any of...

    Pressure is by far the better ability for stall/fat teams as it's excellent for burning PP on threatening 'mons like Lando and Tyranitar and discouraging them from clicking certain low PP moves every time they come in. It also gives you a huge advantage in the stall vs stall mirror match. That...

    Landorus-T isn't really comparable to Naganadel in my eyes because it has so much offensive counterplay. The only things that can reliably revengekill Naganadel are Scarf Greninja and Weavile/Mamoswine after a bit of chip. Landorus-T on the other hand sits at a very mediocre speed tier which...

    That might be because after the 2 stage boost from Z-Tailwind, Leaf Blade and Night Slash do crit every time. Sacred Sword, which lacks the 1 stage crit-rate boost that Leaf Blade and Night Slash have, will crit 50% of the time. This is indeed a fun set but it's kind of a gimmick, especially...

    I'm not going to argue about the state of the OU metagame outside of Naganadel but I am going to point out that it is entirely irrelevant in the face of a discussion about Naganadel's impact on the metagame. Pex, Koko, and Lele might very well be broken but that is no reason to keep Naga in the...

    I'm about to go to bed and I don't have the time for a full reply (maybe tomorrow) but I'm definitely going to respond to this bit right now, because I don't understand how this even makes sense to you. You've literally just said you believe Magearna is a better sweeper because it has about 5...

    This forced over-preparation is a huge part of the reason why Naganadel is indeed unhealthy for the metagame. Teams are forced to run AV Tar or SpDef Tran (or even both, as either one on their own is vulnerable to being chipped or lured by the likes of Mega Latios) or very specific...
