    What does Whimsicott offer against Kartana, Ferrothorn, Solgaleo, Dusk Mane, or other misc Steel type? Talonflame offers Tailwind + Taunt to beat the Xerneas mirror, and also offers Flare Blitz to cripple potential Steel counters. And LO Flare Blitz does a lot of damage in the sun, actually...

    Seconding everything ck49 said. Also adding that the proposal was for B- rank. Here are the other Pokemon in B- rank right now: Abomasnow, Araquanid, Dialga, Ditto, Hitmontop, Landorus-T, Palkia, Tapu Bulu, Zapdos. Talonflame fits perfects with this group. Niche Pokemon that either have some...

    Yeah, that's what you want Tailwind users to do on a hyper offense team. Set up tailwind and get out of the way to bring in a heavy hitter. It threatens Xerneas and Groudon for 50% of their HP, which again is the whole point of the Pokemon. It doesn't need to threaten an OHKO: if it threatens a...

    Haha don't know what gave you that impression! I always thought we were close in age. Trying to be relevant in VGC again now that I graduated college, we'll see how that goes. Also getting married in less than a month! What's been up with you?

    What do you do with those turns though? The turn after TR, all you have on the field is a Mimikyu. Are you really able to take advantage of a temporary removal?

    There are a lot of people with a lot to lose from this. Everyone has a right to vote for who they want to be president, but you have to own up to the fact that if you didn't vote Clinton, you enable Trump to win this.

    Rock head + Flare Blitz, that's honestly really cool. I'm assuming its signature item still doubles attack, which would make that pretty tough to switch into.

    Z-Move Discussion

    Most of the Z move seem to be at least 1.5x better than the base form. I'd argue this power seems pretty perfect. Its a one time nuke a little stronger than a gem boost that leaves the user free to switch moves.

    Z-Move Discussion

    I haven't had much time to keep up with the Z move mechanics as they've been revealed (haven't played the demo either) so I have a little bit of a stupid question/clarification: when you use a Z move, does it replace or enhance the effect of the regular move? For example, if use the Ghost Z move...

    While we can't know anything for sure, I disagree with this logic. I see where you're coming from: a lot of the old Pokemon in the national dex are our competitive staples, that the metagame has centralized around in the past. But the lack of Megas and introduction of Z moves are two very...

    I'm really glad they raised the money for their opposition. I live in Orange County, NC, and the race here is really close. Our governor is the worst, and the Democratic opposition actually has a shot. This incident has the potential to become a serious talking point here, and I really hope the...
