  1. Resource SS OU Viability Ranking Thread

    In the Pre-DLC Viability Ranking Discussion, I made a case for Durant to be moved up to C+, and then DLC happened and crushed my hopes and dreams of Durant moving up. However, I think my point remains, so I'd like to nominate Durant to be moved up to C or maybe even C+ Most people would simply...
  2. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 5 - Switching Gears

    I don't have voting status, so I won't provide a huge explanation, but if I could vote, I'd vote Ban. It simply has too few counters and has too much of a chokehold on the current meta. Whenever I see this thing in team preview, I get scared. You never know what it will run, and therefore how to...
  3. Resource SS OU Viability Ranking Thread

    Hey guys, I want to contribute a few opinions to this, as well as state my opinions on pokemon in the meta. Cinderace (S Tier) Not gonna lie, Cinderace is kind of overrated. It's not bad by any means, and is certainly a great pokemon, but it isn't an overwhelming force worthy of a ban like gen...
  4. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v5 (usage in post #547)

    A really unimportant fact that I find interesting: Skarmory not being in OU is a first for it, and up until recently, Tyranitar was the only pokemon to be in OverUsed for 7 consecutive generations (These numbers came from the end of each generation, or current viability). Now, Ttar has the...
  5. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v5 (usage in post #547)

    Any reason in particular for running inner focus over stamina? I get that it is slow and therefore vulnerable to flinches, but out of the mons you mentioned only hydreigon runs a flinching move (dark pulse), but I don't really think it's great against hydreigon anyways, plus if you face a...
  6. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - Fish Out of Water

    Before you start reading, I absolutely agree with this post. I will admit, rocks are a problem for for Shiinotic in this scenario, and I already stated I don't actually think this will be viable, but there are a few things the poster forgot. 1. There's this one pokemon, I don't know if you've...
  7. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - Fish Out of Water

    I have already stated my opinion so I won't do so again, but I would like to present this: Shiinotic Moonblast Giga Drain Strength Sap Protect Effect Spore, Bold Nature, Leftovers, 188 HP, 236 Def, 80 SpAtk, 4 Speed, Max EVs I tried this set out in three battles with Vish, only one of which I...
  8. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - Fish Out of Water

    I agree with the previous post, there have been plenty of pokemon that have been in OU just because they have a great match up against one pokemon. Cough cough gen 3 Magneton. Every pokemon is going to affect the meta in some way. Yes, Dracovish is affecting it more than others, but it's fine...
  9. Resource SS OU Viability Ranking Thread [Pre-DLC]

    I think that Durant should be raised from C- to at least C+ I don't think that Durant is a top threat, but I certainly don't think that it's on the same viability as Shedinja. Hustle is a solid ability that goes well with Max Moves, and Hone Claws makes up for the accuracy drop as well as...
