    BW OU Viability Ranking, mk. 4

    It's totally usable, but not very good. Its speed tier is nice because it outspeeds Dragonite, but unlike a scarfer like Latios, Keldeo, or Garchomp it does not outspeed Volcarona. Landorus also doesn't really have a move which is good to lock into besides U-Turn, everything else is pretty...

    Gen 5 Gliscor (WIP)

    I don't think facade on non-SD Gliscor really accomplishes anything, if you are worried about Dragonite just run ice fang or Breloom wing attack. Facade is an awkward in between option that isn't very strong unboosted. Facade's extra damage against rotom just isn't all that relevant from a...

    What is going on with potential tier tweaks? Volcarona suspect?

    OU Set Dump, Team Dump, (and previously General Metagame Discussion)

    Honestly I'm not sure why this is even a discussion. ADV is incredibly well balanced with both established structures and tons of space for creativity in both options mons have and lesser used mons. Also, nobody wants to deal with Suicune out of sand or Gengar out of sand when you can't even...

    OU ADV OU Viability Ranking

    I strongly believe Breloom is underranked in the company of Milotic and Heracross. His floor is pretty high because of spore, he's actually a lot more consistent than you might think. The set that really pushes him over the edge is double status in my opinion, ridiculously effective at landing...

    BW is a crummy metagame

    I think from a game theory perspective Volcarona and Cloyster (king's rock) are actually some of the only ways to realistically exploit the oppressiveness of magic guard sand. Their existence is a detractor from bringing it almost every game. I understand the reasoning behind making small...

    BW is a crummy metagame

    This is a complex issue because a lot of what gives BW its identity is the brokenness of different playstyles and the mons that embody it. Like a lot of other people who still play this meta I started when it was the current gen, and it is really unfortunate to see what is has come to. There...

    OU DPP OU Viability Ranking: mk. V

    Can I ask what makes Steelix so high in your eyes? I'm pretty much a DPP scrub, I don't think I've ever seen one on the ladder. Definitely seen Forretress, Mamoswine, Celebi quite a bit though. My guess would be it's somewhere between Bronzong and ADV steelix? Genuinely curious.

    OU ADV OU Viability Ranking

    Why is camerupt so low? I've used Camerupt for over 1500 games and have reached 1600 ELO while beating plenty of 1650+ ELO people in the past. The fact that it's not taken seriously is hilarious.
