    Thoughts on who the most viable/best Pokémon are right now? my opinion is Chi Yu is currently the best Pokémon in OU, and due for Ubers soon. Specs or scarf boosted fire/dark attacks can easily go unchallenged by so many teams, due to most teams only having pokemon that resist one stab or the...

    chi yu is excellent with no terra and with no setup. Much more of a problem than the other two and substantially more warping. You can’t game plan for “immediate threat” as much as you can plan for “setup threat”, especially when it 2hkos almost everything relevant!

    Having an absolute blast with the following combo, it’s really fun, tho currently trying to design a team that can reach 1800+ with this setup: Step 1. trick room + healing wish hatterene to lead Step 2. Use a hard hitting tank, such as garganacyl to setup, or kingambit, keep going until you...
  4. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    Objective: to have a competitive metagame, i.e. without features that make it too uncompetitive scenario: do you preserve the mechanic, and sacrifice a long list of top threats whilst you try to keep the metagame stable, or do you preserve the Pokémon’s, and sacrifice or strip back the...

    a tera meta would possibly lead to the best threats, like espartha, dragonite, etc, eventually being banned in an attempt to keep the mechanic intact a non Tera meta would possibly lead to a less creative metagame, however with less banned Pokémon overall making it more diverse overall...
  6. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    Query… why not just get objective data on whether it’s worth keeping Tera and non Tera by running an OU with and an OU without. This way people choose what they want, and you get to run Tera for a longer period of time to get a better understanding of how strategy changes It might tell us what...

    very annoying Pokémon that is likely to get more attention if the most prominent threats leave OU. the only thing holding it back is how many offensive things there are that reduce it’s space and the predictability of it, you know exactly when it needs to Tera if it wants to shine. It’s...

    Prediction: if gholdengo isn’t banned this month it will be >35% usage by end of month. Potentially within reach of 50%. :gholdengo: You’re doing yourself a disservice not using gholdengo right now, but unlike landorus it warps the game around hazard stack meta and the use of heavy duty boots...

    big fan of standard issue defensive 252 /216+ / 44 Tera fairy with recover and nasty plot. acts as a good switch in to valiant, surviving even a +2 knock off, and can take earthquakes from clodsire and some ting Lu, which gives it a good MU after forcing damage on some teams. Easily deals with...

    Has anyone tried Lucario much? :Lucario: Lucario @ Life Orb Ability: Justified Tera Type: Normal EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe Adamant Nature - Swords Dance - Extreme Speed - Close Combat / Earthquake - Bullet Punch / Crunch / Ice punch / Earthquake thanks to its typing, the standard e killer...

    chi yu might be okay in a vaccuum, but it’s genuinely a problem when you’re trying to put together diverse 6-Pokémon teams. it’s just really really good.. and has a similar effect to what paladin and iron bundle had, just less egregious. it’s kinda interesting seeing so many high power or high...

    That fire/dark Pokémon is really OP as well.. anyone else noticing dark pulse is flinching more than ever before? here’s 5 flinches in a row that caused my meme team to lose :( https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen9ou-1721688998 Seriously the power creep this gen is making it very difficult...

    In a meta with almost no flying types, choice band :Garchomp: Garchomp has been pulling heavy weight. It’s easy to partner it with switchins for dragonite and corviknight! anyone else tried sets that wouldn’t fly in any other meta, but are seemingly working great in the current one? Choice...

    Surprised to see so many choices gholdengo, it has very beefy stats. this set has been working a charm :gholdengo: Gholdengo @ Leftovers Ability: Good as Gold Tera Type: Fairy EVs: 252 HP / 216 Def / 40 SpD Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Shadow Ball - Make It Rain - Recover - Nasty Plot It helps...

    :wo-chien: Wo-chien is so bulky it looks like it will be an OU mainstay after the departure of the current 5 Pokémon being discussed by the decision makers. All 5 are problematic for it. • knock off has low distribution, and it can use it against everything. Meanwhile it’s less likely to have...
