    SD steelceus is allowed since cm is regarded as the superior set

    That is allowed since Dragon Tail does not get STAB.


    That is correct.

    Okay, Week 1's challenge is over! I won this round with an ACRE of 2010, deviation of 72. Anikrahman1995 came 2nd with an ACRE of 1900, deviation 79.

    This week's challenge was pretty easy, IMO. Probably not a bad one to warm you all up! We'll move to (hopefully) a harder challenge this week.

    Week 2's challenge is up!

    I'm at a 25-4 record and have an ACRE of 1872 (glicko2 is 1982 +- 78) with a team of Aron/Hippowdon/Ferro/CM Arceus-Ghost/Leftovers Chansey/Offensive Excadrill. Aron is actually incredibly useful: if you can keep hazards off the field it can come in even on an attack if the opponent is Leech Seeded from Ferrothorn or Chansey is passing a wish. Chansey wants to be a Blissey, but oh well it actually does pretty well, walling Palkia and Latias which is all I need it to do.

    Just saying, since PS went down for a couple of days (or at least we weren't able to battle), I'm going to extend this week's challenge for an extra week.

    Can we change the rules to allow Eviolite on everything but Chansey? It'd still be hard to ladder with any NFE, and I want to play around with stuff like Misdrevious, Lilleep, and Porygon2. It's not like any of those guys are particularly Uber viable anyway

    Yes. By default, I'm going to check your ranking at the end of the challenge, but if you can prove through screenshots that you had a higher ranking in between, I'll take that into account.
