I feel Hackmons could use it's own introductory thread, even if only so it can have a link from !om someday. So here's an OP
shamelessly stolen from
based on Verbatim's BH thread. Discuss your wondertombs/balls and killer deoxys's here.
What is this tier?
Hackmons is a tier where one can use any moves and ability on any pokemon and have 252 EVs in every stat. Another thing to note is that there are no clauses. You can have 6 Dialgas if you want and Spore the entire opposing team if they let you.
This metagame can be seen as the Uber to Balanced Hackmons'
OU (not a perfect analogy), where the more centralizing abilities and moves have been banned.
What can I expect?
When building a team, be ready for ridiculous combos like No Guard + OHKO moves, and Wonder Guard pokemon with no weaknesses. These are far from the only new challenges in the tier though, as many other previously mutually exclusive pokemon, moves, and abilities can come together.
For a more detailed listing of common threats, take a look at the Pure Hackmons Threatlist
, managed by ForeverPerfectXI.
Where can I play?
Hackmons is currently hosted on Aesoft's online competitive pokemon simulator, Pokemon Showdown
I have an idea for a set...
Great! If you've had success with or encountered an interesting set feel free to post it in this thread. However, please keep discussion to sets you've either seen in battle or tried out yourself.
Starting this off with two questions I've seen a bit. As the thread progresses, more may be added.
Most importantly, while this tier can be very frustrating at times, remember to have fun!
