  1. Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - A Thousand Miles [Zygarde is now Banned]

    I feel that listing Zygarde as the top-most threat to cover and Tang as the sole true counter is really overselling a bit the snake's abilities. He might be the hardest to handle, but failing to properly counter Ash Greninja for instance will yield far more disastrous results, and even if he has...
  2. Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - A Thousand Miles [Zygarde is now Banned]

    While some pro-ban people argue that the pro-DNB use the wrong arguments, I think that the opposite is true too. The entire pro-ban argument seems to hinge on the fact that Zygarde's "versatility" is the main problem, because he can always find a way to beat his checks/counter when he has the...

    I don't think it's TA on its own that's busted, but rather TA + Glare (or Toxic to a lesser extent), because virtually nothing resists both at the same time. Glare can paralyse everything but Electric types and TA is always super-effective against them, so Zygarde can always freely press Glare...

    Why isn't there a suspect ladder set up for the duration of the suspect test? I'm pretty sure it happened in the past, and I'm not sure why the council has chosen not to do it this time, especially because of how central Zygarde is to the OU metagame. I'm pretty sure that most people already...

    Well, all the other tiers can be influenced by rises to/drops from a higher tier, which do not concern OU by virtue of being the highest usage tier. If you look at UU for instance, you can see that most of their suspect tests where either about some OU mon that dropped, or some UU threat that...
  6. Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    The problem I see with this, and this sentiment has already be echoed by quite a few people here, is that if you move Hawlucha down to B+ because it reflects its viability in Tournaments, every newbie that wants to learn about the metagame will see that he has to prepare more for Reuniclus than...
  7. Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    I'm not sure how I'll be able to see that Glare-spam is being spammed currently by taking a look at the VR since there are exactly two viable mons that learn it and it's not even in all of their sets… but I digress. As I said, I totally agree that being able to see at a glance the current state...
  8. Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    First post here, but I’ve been playing on the ladder and following this thread for the better part of the year. I feel that, in general, the VR is way too much influenced by the current trends and a lot of the time fails to see the long-term appeal of a lot of mons, especially in the high...

    How can I not auto-lose to Hawlucha with a Hyper Offense team that is not relying on Koko for screen support? (I am playing webs) Its usual counters aren't nowhere to be found in HO, it's faster than all my mons, and none of them can kill it before he does, either because: - they don't have a...
