  • Been meaning to get your opinion on whether or not [Z-Detect + Prankster] should be banned. It's a complex ban, so it probably wouldn't happen, but maybe we should ban [Detect] the base move. I like sets that use luck in the 1v1 metagame, it makes the whole thing more fun, but [Z-Detect + Prankster] is pretty TOO gimmicky even for 1v1 imo. Please lemme know what you think.

    I'm against complex bans on principle. I think an argument could be made for banning just Detect (since Protect does the exact same thing but without the possibility of an evasion boost), but overall I don't think Z-Detect is too powerful. The only Prankster users are Murkrow, Sableye, and Riolu - none of these poses a bigger threat than Z-Detect Dragonite for example.

    It's not necessarily a "threat" to run into Z-Detect, I just think it lets luck take the drivers seat instead of skill. You could make the same argument with Jumpluff, but even then, Sleep Powder has a 75% hit chance. In any case, thanks for responding. You're the reason i got into 1v1.

    Cool post! Though Charge doubles the power of Electric type moves on the next turn, not by 1.5x.

    Yeah, Gyara is the top tier pokemon right now, but as long as you're using one or two of it's checks (Koko, M-Venu, Banded Kyu, Pory-Z, M-Pinsir, AB Magnezone, Magearna, bulky TPunch Metagross, etc), you should be totally fine. It's a super fun metagame, I'd encourage everyone to try it out!
