  1. Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    Blacephalon murders this thing. I'm sorry, but with the scarf set being so common, it outspeeds this thing and one shots it with flamethrower or fire blast. Excadrill has its strengths, but the metagame doesn't favor it as much as you seem to think it does. Also, Lando-T exists.

    What about Belly Drum + Salac Berry? On paper at least, this seems like a really viable set for the fighting dragon pseudo-legendary. It would fall to priority moves, but it's quite bulky, and the rise of Blacephalon has made threats such as Weavile and Mamoswine less viable.
  3. Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    I think this is too generous for Magnezone, honestly. I think it should drop to B or even B-. Its niche is really declining along with the drop in Magearna and Celesteela usage, and it has way too many checks and counters to be viable.

    Yeah, Pex currently dominates a lot of the metagame. It's a premier hazard setter while also being a general annoyance to almost the entire tier. There are legitimate arguments for a suspect test and ban, but that's for another day.

    This is a fantastic post and perfectly summarizes why Landorus-T isn't broken. I think we should reevaluate the quality of this thread if a new user who just joined today has made better posts than over half of the rest of the thread.

    But it's not theoretically broken. There are plenty of checks to it, and it has multiple sets, none of which are so broken to warrant a suspect. I wouldn't mind suspect testing Lando-T in the future, but as it stands, there's nothing particularly broken about it. Anyway, let's move on to more...

    Dude, of all the people in this thread I'd think you'd know Lando-T isn't broken. It is meta glue. Without it, stuff like Mega Gyarados and Mega Pinsir would be broken as shit. I bet one day until this thread gets locked at this rate.

    Considering that he told people to "learn how to read" I think it's safe to say he was trolling.
  10. Metagame USUM Metagame Discussion

    Can we please move on from the Lando discussion? If it keeps up, the thread is probably gonna be locked. No one is seriously considering banning Lando-T, so just stop. Anyway, I think Gliscor is really rising in viability right now due to the presence of Toxapex. I personally run an EQ Ice Fang...

  12. Metagame USM Ubers Sets Discussion

    I know, I'm just saying that usage will probably increase now that it's officially banned.
  13. Metagame USM Ubers Sets Discussion

    FYI that now that Naganadel is banned from OU, the Ubers tier should probably prepare for the entry of a new Pokemon. Steel-types like Dialga and ground types like Groudon will probably destroy this thing.
  14. Metagame USUM Metagame Discussion

    Digging myself into a deeper hole here, but yeah, I agree with you that the new defog setters hurt Tapu Fini's role because now it's just outclassed. I really hope they give it new tools in the next generation to help make it more unique.
  15. Metagame USUM Metagame Discussion

    Yeah, sorry, I should have checked to make sure that no one posted the same points that I made. Anyway, yeah, Defog is definitely nice. Centralizes the metagame around stealth rock a lot less because the SR setters now have to worry about being defogged. It also helps to add new strategies to...
  16. np: USUM UU Stage 5 - Obsessions (Kommonium Z and Scolipede banned from UU)

    Can we just talk about how amazing Kommo-o is with Kommonium z now? Seriously, having a move that buffs all stats is a godsend for the thing. Definitely a Pokemon to watch in the future.
  17. SPOILERS! Zeraora

    I love this thing in terms of both mechanics and design. We need more electric legendaries
  18. Resource SM OU Viability Ranking Thread

    Its defensive typing is still okay, but it's worse than before, especially with Pokemon like Heatran dominating at the moment. A drop to A- is probably warranted due to this, and with the typing still being somewhat viable, a harsh drop isn't really warranted, though current trends aren't...
  19. Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v4

    Agreed, Trick Room tends to benefit slow, high attack pokemon more than stallers. Primarina is a Pokemon that could benefit heavily from Trick Room. Adding on to the Trick Room discussion, Magearna also benefits from it. It's probably the best Pokemon to use Trick Room with.
  20. Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v4

    Trick room is fine, there are lots of mons that are sweepers but are able to take hits.
