    The second live Smogcast will be this upcoming Tuesday at 3 PM EST. In here you can talk about things you'd like to be discussed about the primary topic. You can also ask fun questions that you'd like to be answered during the last 20 minutes of the show.

    How would the metagame change if a decently useful Pokémon got Cloud Nine?

    Should older gens be touch in regards to tiering? For Example the support for latias to come back to ou in Dpp.

    What is "the best" Ninetales set? How do I make it less of a liability for me and more of a pain for my opponent?

    Quick question: will this be the same pannel as before, or will we have new experts in this discussion?

    If you could make one change to the type chart (add a resistance/weakness, remove one, etc.) what would it be?

    What do you think is the biggest and most outstanding change the Gen V Metagame introduced from previous generations? From the Eviolite and DW abilities, there's a lot to choose from.

    Not a question but perhaps a topic can be Smogon Policy! I think a debate about the different going ons of Smogon Policy would be a thought provoking debate that could both provide entertainment and constructive ideas at the same time.

    What are your thoughts on Sleep Clause testing in Ubers?
    Also... how is "Smogon" pronounced?

    I'm really looking forward to this next Smogcast!!!

    Winning games in 5th gen OU is more dependent on team matchup than in previous generations. Is this primarily because of weather? Or is it just that 150+ new Pokémon makes it harder to cover every relevant threat with a team of only 6?

    There is a chance this question might be seen as just a joke, but I am curious to know the actual answer. What do you say to people who dislike the methods Smogon handles bans and clauses and such?

    What is the opinion of the cast on the increase in aggressive gameplay relative to other generations (gen 2 basically being a stallfest and all the gens up until bw2 becoming increasingly more aggressive)?

    How do you think Pancham's new move, Parting Shot (lowers opponent's offensive stats and switches the user out), would affect today's metagame?

    Would you forgo modern methods of transportation (car, bus, etc.) to ride a Gogoat?

    What's the worst Pokemon you've ever used to win battles in BW OU?

    Opinions on user mikel?

    If you could own one Pokemon in real life (legendaries excluded, of course), what would you choose and why?

    This is probably up your alley Lonely...

    What would the meta look like without the "30% chance" moves that we saw added in gen 5.

    Specifically Scald and its other deviations.
