    Tomohawk is live on the Smogon University PO Server!

    [​IMG]

    The inaugural battle was fought between our TL, reachzero, and Rising_Dusk, the ATL. The battle started off with reach getting up hazards early, and then fighting a struggle between checking Latios and Quagsire. Eventually, though, Rising_Dusk's Tomohawk got in a crucial Rapid Spin that gave him a lot more leeway to eventually come out on top! reachzero attempted a last ditch Dragonite assault, but it wasn't enough for the combined might of Rising_Dusk's remaining team members, who went on to secure Rising_Dusk the win 4-0. Good game to both players!

    So let's get on with the playtest!

    Playtesting will last 2 weeks from this post (give or take a few hours), and you all know the drill. The highest ranking player in the playtest gets a custom title, CAP1 Playtest Champion, and recognition on the CAP website entry for Tomohawk! If you want an idea of what Tomohawk can do, check out the preliminary analysis here. If you can't figure out how to install the server update to play Tomohawk, check out the connection guide here.

    This thread will serve as the headquarters for all playtesting results and comments. If you post battle logs or long excerpts, please use hide or code tags so they don't flood the thread. If you have cool ideas you want to discuss about Tomohawk in battle, or anything about him, really, then post it here!

    Most of all, let's have fun playing the first CAP of the new generation! Huzzah!

    It was a blast! We both were using probably the same Tomohawk set, amazingly, and it was really tense and fun! reach's a spectacular player, and I was honored to have him as my opponent. It was great fun and I hope to run into him again on the ladder sometime! ;)

    I'm warier than I was last generation about giving the guy who happens to have the #1 rating a name on the CAP site as if said person were more of a contributor to the playtest than others were. But I don't think that I'll ever get the right timing to have this go through, so I'll just mention it here in passing.

    On a lighter note, Maybe I'm a Lion is such a fitting song for this battle and this playtest in general :P

    Tomohawk @Leftovers
    Prankster
    Modest (+spa, -atk)
    252 HP, 40 Def, 88 SpA, 120 SpD, 8 Spe

    -Roost
    -Taunt
    -Aura Sphere
    -Air Slash

    An absolute force to be reckoned with. Becomes as bulky as specially defensive Conkeldurr with less EV investment (But less powerful obviously), a Modest nature in order to be able to dish out some pain, and 8 EVs invested in Speed in order to outspeed other Prankster sets (which will either be running 0 or 4 spe EVs) and Taunt them, ruining their strategy, and proceed to take them out with Air Slash. Has worked an absolute charm so far. Priority Roost and Taunt work wonders against stall, too. Beats Skarmory 1 on 1.

    I'm going to have to test this set a bit more, but it's working great. Brutalises opponent's non-attacking (or boosting) momentum and hits back hard.

    It isn't, apparently this has to do with "testing Tomohawk in the metagame it was conceived."

    So far as I am aware, CAPs are designed for the metagame they were started within. Lots of discussion and development happened with Tomohawk before Blaziken was banned, so it seems apparent to me that it should continue in such a manner. For that reason, I didn't ban Blaziken from the playtest ladder. That said, there's really no official ruling for metagame shifts in the middle of a CAP project, so the moderators could convene and if called for, I could ban Blaziken from the ladder.

    tomo actually keeps blaziken in check pretty well, it is still a beast though.

    So, I'm currently sitting at #1 on the CAP playtest ladder, and all I can say is that Tomohawk is so fucking good with rain. Hurricane is one of the best moves in the game.

    Which, if it is the case, means we have failed to fufill the concept, and just made a sweeper with Priority Taunt and Roost.

    Tomahawk's concept was mometum, not sweeping, after all, and we even went towards a more defensive mometum.

    Anyway, I've not been able to play yet, but when I can, I'll be seeing if my inhibitions about BulkUpPass were right.

    You would think people would realise that a Pokémon with these kinds of stats and a more powerful Hurricane than Dragonite - who is a really good rain sweeper - would therefore make Tomohawk a bulky rain sweeper.

    Prankster is just the cherry on top, really.

    From my meager playtesting so far, I find Prankster Memento to be too good. Everything else about the Hawk seems to be fine, but Prankster Memento enables too much smashpassing.

    Momentum is still a very ambiguous thing, and you could say that sweeping holds momentum for the rest of the team. It can function as a lot of different versions; Tomohawk is great because you never know what you're gonna be getting when you fight it. It could be support-sweeper-spinner-whatever.
    In any case, I'd say that Tomohawk in rain, while good, is not AS good as Tornadus, which has a more powerful and faster Hurricane. As a rain sweeper, Tornadus outclasses it, unless you're looking for a bulky sweep.

    Why do people think that the ability to sweep with a certain set automatically disqualifies Tomohawk from its concept? If anything, the added versatility BENEFITS the concept. Either claim that the rain sweeper obsoletes the other sets that Tomohawk can run or don't claim anything at all.

    Tomohawk still can't really sweep, even with hurricane. I've seen him being more useful by regaining lost momentum with priority substitute and then taking out key threats with hurricane or aura sphere.

    So yeah, maybe because I'm not really part of the CAP crew my opinion may seem less valid but...I made a team built around Tomohawk, Gorebyss, Wobbuffet and a few sweepers who heavily profit from Shell Smash...and just having that tossed together, I haven't lost a single game yet and advanced to the Nr. 3 spot on the ladder in no time (too few matches available to go on to the top for now). Priority Memento is just silly, I'll have to say that again.

    I don't think that means too much, considering that Whimsicott has always had priority Memento. The only real difference is that Whimsicott has Light Screen while Tomohawk has Reflect (and SR, which is cool). Whimsicott has other cool tricks like Encore, though, so I think it's pretty fair to use either.

    I've gotten to #5 on the ladder using Tomohawk in like 20 different ways just to try different tactics. The ladder is still young, so I won't start claiming much yet. Suffice to say that I like Intimidate Tomohawk a lot more than Prankster.

    Yes, the ladder has been pretty sparse these past few days, but it'll pick up as the deadline approaches and if and when the UU fervor dies down a bit.

    Rain probably constitutes 2/3 of teams right now as everyone and their mother seems to be chomping at the bit to plow Hurricane Tomohawk through opponents. I've found excellent responses to be SpD Jirachi with Wish and CM/Recover/Roar/DPulse Latias, who both coincidentally handle Reuniclus expertly as well. Watch out for Taunt on Tomohawk, although Hurricane versions seem to be running Sub/Roost, so they're much easier to handle. Another probable reason Rain is popular is because just about everything on a standard Rain team threatens Tomohawk significantly except for Ferrothorn.

    The most effective sets I've been seeing have been Substitute/Baton Pass, Rapid Spin, and Toxic Stall, in that order. The SubPass set (@Prankster) is basically what the concept called for entirely, and Tomohawk has just the right amount of bulk to pull it off and get some incredibly dangerous threats into battle unscathed and often with the Sub still intact, like Garchomp, Excadrill, or Cloyster. This list goes on and on. I've been using Rapid Spin most recently on a stall team and it's really effective. Being immune to Spikes/Toxic Spikes and switching into Ferrothorn with almost no repercussions ever is a huge boon and gives my team a lot more freedom to move around. Finally, the Toxic Stall set is extremely annoying to face if you don't have a bulky Steel-type with recovery or something with Rest, Aromatherapy, or Taunt (i.e. SpD Jirachi, SD Scizor, RestTalk Gyarados, AromaBlissey, Thundurus), especially because the set has no real room for Taunt and these Pokes can simply outstall, wear down, or set up on Tomohawk. The best thing about this set at the moment is its surprise factor, as I think only one or two people are using it currently.

    This may all change, of course, once there is an actual crop of players on the ladder and people (myself included) stop counterteaming the few other players out there.

    I wanna dump a set here that has worked wonders for me.

    Nature: modest
    Ability: intimidate

    Evs:
    hp: 255
    S.atk: 255

    moves:
    Yawn
    Aura sphere
    Air slash
    Work up

    a bulky sweeper :D

    And I have found that a sashed quiver dance passing Venomoth is a great partner for it.

    And this relativly new user named Slapstick would like me to mention that he was the one who mainly helped me to test and make this set </shout out>

    CaptaiN was responsible for the change in defensive stats. it used to be 55/100/100, but he calc'd that 255 hp would be better spent evs.

    255 hp is more effective at over all bulk then throwing it around into other stats. and max s.atk because he is a sweeper, thus: bulky sweeper
