well, guess i done went and ran linoone one too many times, haven't i? seriously, this is bumming me out more than anything. i was playing him errwhere, he's just, like, the best late-game sweeper eva. but i guess thats that, i'll deal. another poke i'm a tad upset about is magmortar. its not like i really abused him or anything (hell, i don't even recall ever using him), but in my mind he's a cornerstone of nu. having him go up is like yanking dnite outta ou. sure, the metagame will adjust, people will find something else (back to 'mence, whatever), but there would just be a gap. it'll be extremely odd for me, that's all i'm saying.
on the up and up, i'm loving a.miltank going up (fuck you monocurse, you never fucking die) and b.crustle/rhydon going down. crustle's just a bro, and ss is sexyfun. not only that, with spinners sucking for the most part (run offensive cryogonal yo) crustle would be awesome as a set-hazards-and-die poke, and spinners/natu can't even try to switch in on account of his rock stab. fun times for me, i tell ya what. rhydon is, as mentioned, a hugely underestimated offensive threat. round 0 i was rockin' that sr+3 attacks guy, and he was just a pleasure to work with. sub+3 attacks and rp were pretty legit too, so i'm excited for him coming down.
ludi and sawsbuck are just sorta hitting a neutral chord for me. though i do appreciate ludicolo, and this may very well lead to a surg in rain teams, i sorta just am generally apathetic to it. dunno why. whatever, offensive tank ludi is sexy, so coolz for me. plus x4 resist to water means gorebyss is really kinda much easier to handle, so i'm game i guess. sawsbuck is just sorta gonna be another option over sd leafeon. both are just so similar in my eyes. if ya want normal stab+hitting steels, run sawsbuck, if ya want better bulk and utility, run leafeon. thats all that is to me. but i guess if cb sets become popular, then it may turn into something interesting...
Tehy: like i get the feeling you're pro or something
Tehy: on this ladder
Tehy: it's so fucking hard to tell
