    Unfortunately not, mostly because the loss of Zygarde has brought back things like Rotom and Celesteela back into the spotlight and Salamence has a hard time setting up with those in the way, while something like Kommo-o has a much easier time thanks to a much better typing, bulk and and...

    The biggest change is that Zygarde got the boot, which allowed all sorts of BO and Balance cores to come back to life without being labeled "snek bait". These include previously targeted mons like Celesteela, Toxapex, Rotom, etc, whom can now be considered true Ground-immune folk. Now that you...

    So you're telling me this game will get rid of *half* of the Sticky Web setters in the entire Pokedex? Outrageous!

    Hopefully the megas and Z-moves will be available postgame like they handled megas in USUM. I really don't want to wait for the next Ultra Sword / Shield title to use them. EDIT: Also what a way to Thanos snap the tapus and Lando out of the meta. That's a worse ending than Lucy's.

    As the name implies, anti-meta mons are called that because they either counter or are a good pick against popular cores / trends in the meta without being absolutely niche picks with no other use / relevant quality to their cause (like regular Sableye in the XY meta when MegaKanga was still in...

    While defensive Clefable can comfortably take a couple, it allows AV Magearna to not be set-up on as easily by the Calm Mind variant, while having the added benefit of dealing with Tapu Lele / MegaZam better (especially if they also have CM).

    In the Set-up section, MeGallade and MegaChomp are listed as niche choices despite their recent rise to B- in the Viability Rankings (and their transition to the non-niche megas territory). Are these placements on purpose because they're still "new" entries in the meta (the former has just risen...

    Hello there Jordy! Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that Team E in the Mega Gallade competition already had 6 votes before your tiebreaker, so that means that it was probably the actual winner here. Have a nice day!

    Aside from the obvious Heatran, things like Celesteela/Toxapex/ possibly even MegaVenu will probably get better as they either have to worry about one less Ground spammer or they go from set-up bait to "finally checks all grounders bar Rockium chomper/lando". Garchomp and some other DDer like...

    It doesn't hurt that he's top tier in K:SA as well, although I wish Susie was *just* a lil better.

    Well, it really depends on which set you want to tackle the most. Tangrowth and Bulu do a fine job switching into it most of the time but they really dislike SubToxic /Sub with toxic spikes support and Bulu has to watch out for the rare (Z)-Iron Tail. Defensive HP ice Lando can blanket check the...
