    https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/smogtours-gen8ou-472335 In this replay from SPL, Updated Kanto is using Rotom-Wash with the move set Substitute, Nasty Plot, Discharge, and Dark Pulse. How is it possible to have Rotom-Wash without Hydro Pump? To my knowledge this has been impossible in game...

    On The Radar Vol. 2 [See Post #336]

    None of this is what I said? You might have misinterpreted my post. One of the arguments I've seen in this thread is that a suspect is a formality or a waste of time for something that isn't on the same level as past quickbans, and that shouldn't be our line of thinking when this is still a...

    I don’t think this post really says anything. If I just change some words, then the argument stays just as strong arguing against a quickban. Nothing against you in particular and you’re definitely a well-qualified player, but I don’t like this argument. Galarian Darmanitan is not problematic...

    To start, I want to say that I really appreciate this post for the sake of transparency and to allow a place specifically for the community to discuss potentially problematic forces in the meta. I imagine this will be constructive and will help organize the other threads by giving a place...

    Just here to talk about two mons that I've found some success with Reuniclus @ Life Orb Ability: Magic Guard EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD Quiet Nature IVs: 0 Atk / 0 Spe - Trick Room - Psychic - Focus Blast - Shadow Ball I've been using this and it's been putting in some...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion (Usage stats in post #944)

    I think this is a fair sentiment on paper, especially the Whirlwind/Roar point, but I don’t think this analysis is accurate. What viable Pokemon can run Roar/Whirlwind? The first one that comes to mind is Hippowdon, which is weak to Freeze-Dry. I then think of Mandibuzz, who is also weak to...

    B+ -> A- Vincune is actually insane right now. I've used this mon extensively over the past two weeks and I have been thoroughly impressed. It's such a reliable win condition and can rip apart so many common defensive cores. It turns the ever annoying Celesteela, Clefable, and Heatran into set...

    I find your reasoning to be flawed. Last I checked Lopunny runs HO over way more than HO can hurt it. Mega Pinsir is honestly the only threat to Mega Lopunny that HO usually runs, while Lopunny's Fake Out into Return/HJK kills most of the HO mons. It laughs at Mimikyu, Smeargle, Bisharp, Alola...

    Got a quick nomination B -> B-/C+ So Webs used to be a pretty real threat in the meta a few weeks back but it's died down quite a bit imo. They're still good in certain match ups, but it's far too inconsistent. Hazard control is a lot better now with Mew everywhere. Mew also threatens...

    Not entirely sure why you quoted me in your post and responded with this. I'm not clear on what your response is even trying to say. Yeah...it has been said before. Yeah...Fake Out is still good and is probably the best option. All I said was it has a bit more freedom than last gen to run a...

    I've been testing Mega Lopunny a lot and it should be B+ imo. It's surely not as good as last gen with Mew and Toxapex everywhere, but I think B is way too harsh and people are underestimating it. Its speed tier is still fantastic, notably outpacing Ash Greninja, forcing it to use Water Shuriken...

    Could we get an explanation of Mega Garchomp's rise? It wasn't mentioned in the post and I'd like to know the reasoning. Also gonna have to disagree with a Mega Alakazam drop. The rise in Magearna and Celesteela usage hurts it (it can use these to get Soul Heart and Beast Boost which is cool...
