    Hey I'm +11 GMT at the moment, so I'm 15 hours ahead of you. I'm thinking Saturday morning for you, say 10 o'clock, which would be 1 am for me. Let me know if that works for you.

    Gen 2 Someone refresh my memory

    I don't get this '4 booms is not GSC' logic GSC is whatever it can be. Just because people didn't always play boom heavy doesn't mean that's not GSC. It just means that for whatever reason, people arbitrarily decided to develop a slower meta in the early days (when a faster one was clearly...

    Lol wow Do these mechanics apply to Stadium too?

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

    I'm guessing that's just gen6 mechanics overlapping into past gens. Any idea if/when this will be fixed?

    Gen 1 It is...NOT, a Wrap.

    I don't see the point in banning wrap when it's not OP and is harder to use than non-wrap. You can outplay someone for 10 turns and get done in by one piece of RNG. Why ban a strategy that has multiple hard counters. Good players know wrap isn't OP, they just don't like versing it. They don't...

    I've been away for awhile but I've heard people mention new mechanic changes for RBY. If someone could explain them to me that would be greatly appreciated.

    I've got a lot of free time, so just give me a time (and your timezone) and I'll let you know if I can do it. I'm don't have IRC atm. Also do you want to battle on PS or PO? I'm easy either way, it's just easier to find someone and challenge them on PO.

    All Gens Pokemon Through the Ages: Flygon

    Victreebel is easily OU in RBY with wrap legal. The doublepowder razorleaf wrap set is too good to just be considered a gimmick. It probably would have been considered a staple OU along with the likes of alakzam and starmie had the community always accepted wrap. Without wrap though it is just a...

    Pokémon that are great competitively but suck in-game (and vice versa)

    Golem was OU in gen1 and was great in-game then. Most RBY OUs are bad in-game due to availability/movepool. Golem and victreebel are the main exceptions (bel is OU with wrap legal). Abra is ok, but you need to give it seismic toss or put it in the daycare centre because it doesn't have any...

    Staying away from popularity: Pokemon that you like that others don't and hate that everyone likes

    To be fair, wiggly was redundant competitively in gen1, when she was released. Clefable is considered borderline in gen1, and wiggly is completely inferior to clefable in every way except that her counter does more damage due to having higher HP. As I said before, her real niche was to make...

    Staying away from popularity: Pokemon that you like that others don't and hate that everyone likes

    Butterfree was the strongest Pokemon in the game pre level 15, and was what most people used to beat Brock if they played Yellow or started with Charmander. It also had lots of utility, and was the Pokemon that introduced players to status usage (unless they started Bulbasaur). Wigglytuff...

    Gen 2 Blissey

    Noob question here, but do blissey and the electrics sort of overlap in their role. From what I understand, they both switch into specials, and lure in lax. I understand that blissey offers a lot less offensive presence, but what are the main differences between what blissey and the electrics...

    Gen 1 RBY Viability Ranking Thread

    I don't really like how gengar's main selling point is considered to be that it's the fastest sleeper in the game. I feel like the meta has evolved to the point where the sleep war is more about what gets slept rather than sleeping something first. I think that its real selling point is that it...
