    All Gens What are your favorite teams of all time?

    I built this team about a year ago during Callous cup and gave it its tour debut during the finals with thelinearcurve which was one of the most fun tour games I've ever played. It's a fairly standard double rock offense but the addition of the mixed rachi gives the team an extra dimension to...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    I used to run into this dude on ladder who ran endure reversal scizor, that thing was surprisingly scary sometimes.

    Gen 3 Hit the ladder, so here we are

    Really solid team, personally I think the 6 mons are fine but I would change a few of the sets. -As others have mentioned, sub jolteon isn't super optimal these days. It's nice for tempo but the cost of eating 25% of your health is too much for a mon like Jolteon. Personally I'd go twave as I...

    Gen 3 Can you help me rate my team again?

    The team has a pretty solid defensive backbone but I think its main problem is lack of offensive synergy and a way to break down opposing stall builds. There are some redundancies on the team that I think would be better filled with some things that offer more offensive pressure. Your two main...

    Hey, looks like I'm your opponent for ADV Cup. Let me know when would be a good time to play. I'm at GMT -6. Weekends are generally best for me but can do weekdays after 6pm my time.

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    I don't want to go through my whole VRs just because that will take too long so here's a bit of a scattered post on my thoughts about the current metagame: My Top 5: I can be easily persuaded to change my order on most of the viability rankings but I strongly believe these are the top 5 at the...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    Hey guys, I guess I'm a bit late to the party but I've been putting this together in word since Callous Cup and finally finished up B tier so figured I might as well share it. I've tried to the best of my abilities to put each pokemon in order of effectiveness. S This is the best pokemon in...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    One mon that looks a bit low to me on the current list is Swampert. Recent innovations in its move sets have taken it from being a boring but effective pivot into a multi faceted defensive mon as well as a surprisingly strong offensive threat and I personally think it's back to being a top 5 mon...

    Gen 3 Sandstorm+Spikes (My First Team)

    Sounds good! As far as dealing with magneton teams, you'd be surprised how much you can accomplish with just one layer. When you have skarm in early, you always want to make sure you avoid going toxic until you have at least a layer of spikes down. Toxicing in to a magneton before you have any...

    Gen 3 Sandstorm+Spikes (My First Team)

    Solid start, it has some flaws but I think it can be fixed up in to a pretty good team. First things first, forretress without pursuit support is almost never going to be an effective rapid spinner. Gengar is incredibly common on spikes teams and hard walls forretress. You have two options...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    You can't *always* successfully identify mag, but any information you get about the opposing team can make that guess more informed. Even in triple electric they'll probably be running something like say toxic metagross that really appreciates mag support and you can have a bit more information...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    This is an interesting discussion. While the lead metagame certainly exists in adv it is far less influential than it is in other gens. Oftentimes you're just trying to lead something that reveals as little about the team as possible and if you're on the bad end of the lead match up, switching...
