    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    I imagine it would be the Pokemon. Moves are usually only banned if they are widely distributed and broken across many different Pokemon

    Hopefully it'll be suspected like Dmax was and not just outright banned right away

    Metagame [SPOILERS] Scarlet & Violet OU Discussion [BAN LIST POST 626]

    Are HDB confirmed to return? Meta is going to be wet hot trash if not. Why on earth they gave everyone and their mom hazards while decimating hazard control is far beyond me

    None of this makes any sense to me. It is all contradictory. If this doesn't change things as much as we think, then what is the point? A clause like this does only restricts team building. While most items have many viable holders, many Pokemon only have 1 or 2 viable items. Want to run...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 12 - Monster Mash

    Idk if I'm following here. This would essentially be equivalent to the Mega Sableye ban in ORAS in terms of timing. This had a massive effect on the metagame. I don't know why you say that no one cares or that everyone agrees on the appropriate course of action. There is clearly no consensus on...

    OU DPP OU Viability Ranking: mk. V

    Hi, I really like the thoughtfulness of this post. But I am really curious, what niche do you feel Magcargo fulfills? I have never seen it used, nor do I really know what it would do. But if you've seen it or even used it before and can speak to this I am really interested to learn. Magcargo is...

    I think we have enough info about how a bootsless metagame would be: bad. Boots are frankly a huge boon for many team archetypes which now don't have to forgo certain options due to their rock weakness. Excessive pressure on players to play to the hazard game both in teambuilder and in battle...

    Mandibuzz is outclassed by Eviolite Murkrow. Murkrow has access to Prankster Feather Dance which Mandibuzz can only dream of. If the Flying type isn't needed then it's strictly outclassed by Umbreon as an offensive Dark type.

    Tracing the origins of "goes brrrr"

    To quote the first post: "I am aware of the origin of the phrase in general but not its adoption on this site." Don't be afraid to read posts before responding to them in the future.

    Tracing the origins of "goes brrrr"

    Thank you for your honest and straightforward answer. This is the best answer I could have hoped to receive. "125 special attack go brrrr" "Fishious Rend go brrrr" "Teleport + Future Sight go brrrr" Please tell me this is not what you intended for the users of this site. What about people who...

    Tracing the origins of "goes brrrr"

    I am curious about the excessive use of this phrase on the site so I had a few questions. I have been around a long time but not consistently active. I am aware of the origin of the phrase in general but not its adoption on this site. 1) Why do users evoke this phrase ad nauseum, sometimes...

    It doesn't. Scarf Gengar easily beats it 1v1, Mismagius needs significant prior damage for Starmie to KO it with Hydro Pump, and Starmie can't touch Shedinja at all. Froslass can be EV'd to survive its Hydro Pump and proceed to Icy Wind + Shadow Ball. You're right that they can't switch in, but...

    Ok no offense, but didn't you name it after you yourself?

    Maybe a chance for a Slowking rise? Both Slow twins appreciate this but possibly Slowking moreso since it removes a special attacker it still can't handle in spite of its bulk. Hail is gonna have a field day with the uptick in bulky waters (minus Gastrodon and Rotom). I think in addition to...

    I don't really think this constitutes a big blow to hail teams. Hail functions on the success of its main setter and abuser. I think there are plenty of options which support hail better than Kyurem did. In fact, the loss of its Freeze Dry within the metagame appears to bolster easy Bolt Beak...
