    SPOILERS! List of Movepool Changes [New Isle of Armor Additions!]

    Gliscor also gets Power Whip as a notable new move, if I'm not mistaken. But holy cannoli, all these new additions are insane. Lots of (possibly) returning megas will adore these new toys, namely broken Blaziken with CC, swampert in doubles with Horsepower, NP zam and oh boy U-turn + CC...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for January 2020 (RU ready!)

    Worth noting, RU has lost both Gardevoir and Golisopod, plus ultimate fairy switch-in / SRer Bronzong. Now the best fairies seem to be Alcremie and Silvally, both lacking garde's speed, power and RK capabilities in exchange for superior bulk / recovery. It also means Gallade can finally slot in...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion (Usage stats in post #944)

    While the loss in power and the only marginal increase in bulk are unfortunate, Female Indeedee has access to Healing Wish, which is a pretty decent reason to prefer it over her Male counterpart. Not saying that it's better (because it isn't, especially since this isn't a Latios / Latias...

    Same scale, so GMax Machamp can't have a 140 BP Nuke to flex on the other Fighting types.

    Yes, GMax moves work the same. The only difference is their effect and some cosmetic changes here and there (Centiscorch and Charizard's sig move compared to regular Max Flare, for example).

    Here, courtesy of Merrit from the OI Discord: powers for max moves of most types: 150+ ordinary power -> 150 max power 110+ -> 140, plus Crush Grip, Wring Out, Magnitude, Double Iron Bash 75+ -> 130, plus Pin Missile, Power Trip, Punishment, Dragon Darts, Dual Chop, Electro Ball, Heat Crash...

    Yes, as Spikes are now a Technical Record so you don't need any convoluted breeding chains anymore. Just pop a CD and voilà!

    Metagame Sword & Shield - NU Speculation Thread

    I feel one mon that could rise in this new meta would be Gallade, for multiple reasons: 1) Medicham being gone means that he has much less competition for a fighting type that deals with the Poison buddies; 2) In the pre-HOME meta, many things either don't exist yet (ex.: Incineroar) or don't...

    You are welcome:psywoke: Also, the Dynamax buff is 2x the user's HP at max level (which I assume is what ps! will employ) and it seems it has a weird behaviour with Choice Items (it likely ignores them as you're allowed to choose different moves, but we require concrete proof of how it really...

    Hello there TTP! It's probably something of minimal importance, but the main post in the Gen 8 OU Metagame Discussion is missing Gallade in the Limited Distribution -> Knock Off section. Have a nice day!

    Life Dew is a status move, so it's just a very mediocre half-Recover in singles and an option in Doubles. Now, with the knowledge that Inner Focus was buffed, are Steadfast and Justified still the same?

    Quoting myself because I can. Unfortunately, I bear bad news. A friend of mine has tested Life Dew in singles and it only restored 25%. Hopes shattered.

    If a Pokemon uses Life Dew in Singles, does it still only restore 25%, or does it heal for 50%?

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword & Shield Pre-Release SPOILERS - Check Post 2!

    1) Grimmsnarl easily takes the cake and eats it. Looks menacing, has a great offensive typing, hopefully it gets Knock Off before Sw2Sh2; 2) Sirfetch'd, because it has a really cool design and it's a fountain of memes. Hopefully it'll be viable in competitive. 3) Dynamax Gyarados because it's...
