    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 11 - Break The Ice

    One tidbit I'll add is that despite all the matchup issues and set guessing that Kyurem tends to create, one archetype that really doesn't care about Kyurem at all is Trick Room. Like, obviously TR has its own matchup issues and limitations, but for the most part, you don't even notice Kyurem...

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread

    Where is the most up to date place to view and discuss developments in the current metagame? Before, Smogon forums used to be fairly reliable in feeling out where the metagame is at currently, but nowadays it seems like the forums are over a month out of date when it comes to sharing and...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Item clause is a very drastic, game-altering, and unfun rule to force on everyone out of the blue. Item clause sucks to use in six mon singles--no one wants to artificially gimp half the sets on their team for what is honestly a very subjective balance reason. Overall, it sounds like you're...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    This seems mostly a symptom of ghost just being kind of OP as an attacking type ever since trollfreak decided to remove Steel's resistance to it. Sometimes you have to work with what you have, or in this case, don't have.

    Resource SS OU DLC2 Viability Ranking Thread [See Post #1720 on Page 69]

    I was very confused reading this while skimming, until I glanced at the rest of your post and realized what Volc you were talking about.

    How is Shedinja used to combat future sight for stall teams? I was under the impression that Wonder Guard and Protect don't work on Future Sight. Was that changed this generation?

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    The team that you posted has a Jellicent without Taunt. Taunt is the most important tool that separates Jellicent from Toxapex. If you're not using a Taunt + Wisp set on defensive Jellicent, then you have almost no reason to be using it over Toxapex. Taunt + Wisp lets Jellicent stallbreak...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    I mean, if there is a shortage of people testing new things in the metagame and you think you have a better idea, then you ought to celebrate that rather than covering your ears and running off to a different battle client. Because that is your opportunity to abuse this new and effective thing...

    SS Random Battle Suspect Process - Dynamax

    I never thought I'd see the day when Smogon became so ban happy that they actually decided to start suspect testing randoms. It's literally an rng tier. Leave it alone.

    Pokémon Galarian Darmanitan

    Despite not being able to switch moves anymore, this thing actually kind of likes Dynamax gone, because enemy Dynamaxes almost universally screwed it over, robbing it of KOs and pretty much universally always KOing in return. It's still tough to deal with, though, especially now that you can't...

    Pokémon Gyarados

    It doesn't seem worth dropping Bounce for Earthquake, because then you give up the +1 Speed from Dynamax Bounce.

    Ask simple questions here! [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    Clicking on the Showdown link on the Smogon homepage gets me a blank page that reads the following: I couldn't find any announcement or bug report, and Google turns up nothing. Is this just me? How can I fix this?

    All Gens Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer Mark II (RoA edition)

    Smogon lists OHKO moves in Gen 1 and Gen 2 as dealing 65535 damage rather than the sum of the Pokemon's max HP like in later gens. However, I can't find the data that corroborates this for the life of me. Does anyone know the source of the information? It is from a research thread or something...

    Pokemon Gold 1997 Prototype discovered: Many scrapped pokemon designs within

    Hmm. The Ditto evolution (the blob next to Skarmory on the sprite sheet) is really interesting. I tried using it on debug mode in the demo, and it's basically just a Ditto with better stats. I wonder if Gamefreak had anything more planned for it.

    Metagame SM Ubers General Metagame Discussion

    I thought it was just part of the intended game mechanics, so I didn't record it. If the move still works like that on the emulator, I assume at least a few other people will notice soon enough. Edit: Based on other peoples' responses, my experience doesn't appear to have been the case. I...
