Thanks Typhlito for suggesting the format and The Immortal for making it happen~ GSC STABmons is pretty straightforward, but the possibilities are plentiful. Every Pokemon in GSC OU gains access to every move of their type. For example, Nidoking gains Spikes and Sludge Bomb. This also applies to moves a Pokemon would have gained access to from their pre-evolutions, so Jolteon for instance can use Lovely Kiss. Feel free to use this thread to discuss what's dominant in this format, share teams or sets, and showcase ways of using previously underwhelming Pokemon. We'll also use this thread to handle any proposed bans. At the moment, the issue of every Normal-type gaining access to Mean Look + Perish Song has been raised. This combo is already claused in GSC OU, so just quick banning perish trapping outright might not be a bad idea. Alternatively, we could just ban Mean Look (and Sticky Web?) and not worry about trapping as a whole. This format will be available as a ladder for the month of August 2017. The GSC STABmons Mini-Tournament is still accepting subs.
