Opened VR thread after a month and I am shook. But who gives a damn. My noms.
:Rillaboom: -> A-/A
This mon has gone under the radar and the banning of kyurem does wonders. Corvinknight usage dropping slightly, offensive zapdos discovered, Many things have gone in this mons favour. Lando sitting...
Here is my take on boots/item clause.
What does it accomplish in the first place?
People still gonna use boots volc, mandi, and shit.
And on "boots spam" as a team, how does it even work in the first place?
All your mons wear timbs?
There are other great items and classics like lefties.
Noms going around look nice.
:Melmetal: ->A+ [Agreed]
This mon is insane. You bash everything into death and things which take it either have mediocre longevity(ferro) or weak to its coverage(corv) or just beat up by one read(tran). Got pretty nice coverage and pure steel is good...
I get where you are coming from and i never argued that zam is better than the psychics/ scarfers present in the tier. I just pointed out the 6 things which it had over the offensive psychics. They have a billion better things , sure. And coming to the dark resist problem...
I built the team in...
I tried some dhelmise since you posted and its not been bad. But its almost pushing me to say it should not be ranked. But as of now i believe it can be ranked. Its just been "underwhelming".
Let me eloborate.
1)Does it have power?
Ans)Yes. Often times 2hko in in tandem with band.
Here are a few noms ill make.
:tapu lele: -> A+
This mon is a demon. This mon has almost no safe you good switch in.
vic does not switch in unless max spdef so i am not putting it in. So far these two mans are the only defensive mons who can resist both stabs and not weak to fb...
here is the gen 2 fallen titan raikou. You can optimize the ev spread better if you want since i am kinda new. This cat went from being top 3 to being placed almost in the same tier as linoone. Hope you guys like it. Have a good one fam.
