    SM OU MVenu Balance

    I don't think you really need double Defog on this team. I would give Kartana Smart Strike instead.

    Metronome Battles

    I'm struggling to see why this should be used over Magic Bounce, unless it got banned and the original post hasn't been updated to reflect that.

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    I'm pretty sure anything with those stats and the movepool to back it up would be Ubers. I think it's more telling that Kyurem-Black is allowed in OU. Even if you disregard the lackluster physical movepool, I'd be willing to wager there's a good chance it would have stayed in Ubers if it...

    Approved Notes section in builder

    You can only fit so much information in the nicknames, and you'd need to remove the note nicknames before you enter a battle.

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    I wouldn't really call Aurora Veil a buff to Ice types, in the same way I wouldn't consider Reflect and Light Screen to be buffs to Psychic types. It's a buff to Hail though, as is Slush Rush, though in Slush Rush's case, it lacks a really powerful user that can effectively be paired with...

    Honestly, I like that they aren't reusing the designs. Even though some of the mega designs are great, reusing them for something that is similar to but distinctly different from Mega Evolution would feel really bland and a bit dishonest. "Here is Gigantamaxed Beedrill. Pay no attention to...

    Geez. I've heard time and again that Diamond and Pearl had an awful national dex, but it seriously didn't even include Magnezone, a regular-ass Pokemon that was introduced in those games? WTF

    Umm, it doesn't. Why did you think it did? I just think Pokemon speedruns are cool, and I think it's kinda dumb that Hawlucha is to my knowledge the only Pokemon used in two separate generations, and seeing it be used a third time would be even dumber. Plus, Hawlucha is hella strong, and...

    Speaking of which, I hope they don't make Hawlucha an early-game Pokemon again. It's been the main Pokemon for speedruns in both games it's been in, and it's likely to be even better in this game, since its Fighting STAB boosts its Attack when Dynamaxed.

    Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

    I'd also like an answer to the "why isn't Stealth Rocks banned" question. I'm not of the opinion that I should be banned, but on paper, it does seem kinda banworthy, as it's basically the Primal Groudon of moves, except it applies to all tiers and not just Ubers. The best argument I've heard is...

    Maybe make it a priority move? It is called "Swift" after all. That's not just an English thing, as it's called Speed Star in Japanese.

    It might be safer to just assume the opposite and take out regular Linoone, Weezing, and Rapidash. We aren't losing much.

    We aren't in Kanto or Hoenn, either. From my understanding, the only reason the base forms were considered "confirmed" in the first place was because they share the same slot in the Pokedex with the Galarian forms.

    But it's a variant of Persian. It's the same level of confirmed as Kantonian Rapidash or Hoennian Linoone.

    That includes Alolan Persian, right? Geez, between Kantonian Meowth, Alolan Meowth, Long Meowth, and the rumored Galarian Meowth, that line suddenly has a TON of forms.
