    Thoughts on Chi-yu? Specs is a little ridiculous imo-the only real switch ins are Blissey T-tar and maybe Sylveon.

    I take your point that you can only guess, but this is the case with several other mechanics. In Gen 8 there’s no way to be sure whether your opponent’s Lele is Scarf or Specs-if it’s Specs then Pult beats it, if not then it beats Pult. This is exactly the kind of thing people are claiming that...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    It just isn’t the case that Tera forces these absolute 50/50s, and yes, I have been playing plenty of the meta. There is almost always another play you can make-in the Breloom vs Kingambit example, why not just click Spore? Or Rock Tomb so Ting-Lu in the back outspeeds? Also, saying you have no...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    I don’t want to focus on such a small point in your argument, but this absolutely isn’t the case. Any flying or fire Tera has issues with rocks, and removing hazards isn’t simple with Gholdengo around. It’s also worth noting that dropping one or both of your base types often has a drawback e.g...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    First post back here since Gen 9. After playing a lot of Gen 8 OU and taking a break near the end, I’ve been playing a bunch of Gen 9 since release and would like to share my thoughts on Tera. Originally wasn’t going to make a post but after lurking for a while there’s a few things I’d like to...

    So theoretically you could use Sub to escape Magma Storm? Are there any mons that might be able to take advantage of Tran using this tech?

    I’ve found it. I’ve found the set that lets Excadrill break Corviknight. It’s been so sad, watching one of the kings of Gen 5 fall due to omnipresent Lando and metal birds, so I made it a personal mission to find a set that would let Excadrill break through. Here it is. :ss/Excadrill...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    This is similar to a set I experimented with and posted in Next Best Thing (https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/ou-next-best-thing-cycle-51-gengar.3659339/post-8966113) a while back and yeah Adren Orb Gapdos rocks. Especially when you realise that most Lando can’t touch you with Sub up unless...

    I have tried SpDef Aegislash before, and while it’s a great check to Lele and Kyurem, it doesn’t really do much else and like Abhi says is outclassed by most other Steels. Still if you do want to give it a try then make sure you run Close Combat as you really don’t want to let Heatran and...
