    Great stuff, these are pretty much my thoughts as well after playing the ladder a lot since DLC2. I would expand on the fact that the issue with Urshifu itself is that it's one of the many breakers that threaten balanced playstyles, which actually makes stall more viable if anything, because...

    Necrozma @ Leftovers Ability: Prism Armor EVs: 236 HP / 20 Def / 252 SpD Calm Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Photon Geyser - Heat Wave - Calm Mind - Moonlight I find this to be the most reliable Mage check right now. Switch this in the moment Mage comes in for a sweep and start Calm Minding. With...

    Which avatar on PS has the highest win rate of them all? If you've played enough Showdown, you'll find that certain avatars are more likely to be picked by more skilled players (champion avatars, gimmick avatars like dinosaur cosplayer, janitor etc) whereas the more common and default ones are...

    Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    252 SpA Tapu Lele Shadow Ball vs. 236 HP / 252+ SpD Prism Armor Necrozma: 102-121 (25.8 - 30.7%) -- 4.3% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery 252 SpA Alakazam-Mega Shadow Ball vs. 236 HP / 252+ SpD Prism Armor Necrozma: 127-151 (32.2 - 38.3%) -- 1.5% chance to 3HKO after Leftovers recovery 0...

    Suggestions for Pokémon Showdown
