    Gen 4 DPP OU Viability Rankings: mk. IV

    wHaT aBoUt ElEcTiViRe??? On a serious note, can someone explain why Clef is so high? What is it running, and why is it so good? I'm a DPP noob, but I can't exactly figure out what it does so well, magic guard is obviously amazing, but that's not enough to make it good, is it?

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Boom Boom Pow

    I kinda wish Darm and Dracovish coulda been quickbanned so we could see that metagame, this gen is unplayable if they are here long term anyways (with or without Dynamax). Not sure if any dynamaxer is super broken besides Gyarados, if those three mons were gone maybe it would be ok. I don't...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for December 2019 (here comes UU!)

    welcome to gen 8: where seismitoad is one of the best stealth rock setters, ferrothorn is the only viable grass type and corsola is the bulkiest mon in ou.

    OU Mr. Rime [QC 2/2] [GP 1/1]

    i mean they both fuckin suck but wouldn't eviolite mr. mime galar be better than this? quite a bit better defenses for 60 hp, although not having boots really sucks I guess (?)

    so this mon is on the gen 8 viability list thread... so what's the set that people are running that makes it good? I tried this guy early on and kinda thought he sucked? Spikes and spin is cool, but he is rock fire? maybe like spikes, spin, flamethrower, stone edge (@ boots)?

    here's a shitty mon i've been running because lol Flygon @ Choice Scarf Ability: Levitate EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Earthquake - U-turn - Fire Punch / Fire Blast - Thunder Punch / Stone Edge There is nothing fulfilling the role of fast ground type scarfer with...

    OU Reuniclus

    i would disagree that that is explicitly true - stab is nice but focus blast still hits a lot of stuff harder, and magic guard is really nice, plus thunder is actually really useful. or you could run both on the same team because they have similar checks and work together, and you need multiple...

    BH Balanced Hackmons

    did someone say eviolite rhydon? flint used to constantly make fun of me for using it in gen 5 lol. is corsola good? it's probably the bulkiest mon in the meta, right (dusclops is probably on a similar level)? i mean maybe rhydon is fatter but lots of weaknesses. or maybe type null? it's...

    OU Reuniclus

    isn't otr worth a set? i've tried it (basically a carbon copy of the bw ou set) but this meta is kind of priority lacking, relies on ferropex for defense, and has a lot of rain abuse (swift swim) so it basically outslows everything and can blast through common defensive cores. it seems like...

    Pokémon Dragapult

    lol that set is awful. walled by ferrothorn. also why are you setting up speed on a fast mon. dragon darts uninvested is also gonna be hella weak, as will non stab non life orb not positive nature surf or thunder. yeah you can get past barraskewda, but rain teams have ferrothorn too.

    whats the difference between dynamax (I understand dynamax) and gigantamax? Can you do one of the two, or both every battle? Do all gigantamax forms have special moves (like the Drednaw rocks one, etc.)

    would aegislash be a zacian check (or doublade, for that matter?) seems like they can absorb any attack, retaliate back with gyro ball.

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion (Usage stats in post #944)

    i dont know how people are out here thinking dynamax isn't broken. then again, i remember people thinking mega gengar should stay OU.. corsola seems really solid, especially with knock off's distribution being nerfed pretty hard. wisp and strength sap are ridiculous utility. ferrothorn is...

    Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    hate to say it, but your opponent played like an absolute idiot in the subtoxic salazzle game - the replay doesn't really prove anything. I could see the set having some merit, but i'm not super sold on it either. the typing is obviously insane but salazzle is so frail that even a secondary...
