(Approved by Dittocrow) (OP stolen from silvershadow who stole it from sweetjesus) How it works Every 7 days or so, I will post a core that is commonly used in the current meta. The goal is to suggest a way to counter the core with one or 2 pokemon. You must then explain how your counter(s) will eliminate the core regardless of what happens (bar crits, misses and other hax forms (keep stuff reliable though, zap cannon or multiple focus blasts are very likely not to hit). This means if your counter does not counter the worst possible scenario, it is not valid. Let it be very clear that a counter must be able to come in on both pokemon of the core! For example, Sceptile is not a counter to Moltres as it can't come in on all of its moves, only 1HKO moltres before moltres can 1HKO back with HP Rock. You must include calcs in your post ! Points will be awarded each round and the user with the most points at the time I decide to stop this will be the winner. Leaderboard will be shown in the op. -post a 2 pokemon counter = 1 point -post a 1 pokemon counter = 2 points -prove another user his counter does not counter the core = 1 point You can only post 1 set of counter(s) per core, even if your core has been proven wrong! (Don't modify your post after being proved wrong, we'll catch you). You can prove other people wrong multiple times per round. A same pokemon cannot be used by two users! First one to post a pokemon is the only one to have the rights to use it during that round. However, if you don't have time to post now, you can reserve a maximum of 2 pokemon per round by posting so before they have been used.
