    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #581]

    tl;dr - Suicide Specs Cursola + Dugtrio with Sub or Protect can trap and eliminate most contact-attackers, including problems like Dracovish that Dugtrio cannot normally kill. Both team slots have their own uses outside of this combo: Cursola with its wallbreaking power and Dugtrio with its...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Boom Boom Pow

    I've been watching a bit of VGC, which is where the mechanic was obviously balanced around. People are arguing that a Dynamax ban would dismantle the intended developer design of singles when Gamefreak clearly did not balance it around singles. In fact, they don't seem to balance anything around...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Boom Boom Pow

    My post was deleted so I'll reduce it to a one-liner: be transparent about which alternate ladders where Dynamax will be usable on PS! post-ban and more people will support it. Nat Dex? Ubers? Randoms? AG only? This is more controversial than it needs to be, just assure people that they can use...

    Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    Apologies if this has been mentioned. Seems like the ability in general has some wonky coding, based on past posts. https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8randombattle-1020846370 Dauntless Shield has a strange interaction with Neutralizing Gas. On Turn 3, both player switch and Zamazenta comes...

    OMPL VI Discussion Thread

    Look, I'm going to stay what we're all thinking... Semis aren't going even be close--I think HH is going to wipe the floor with HH. To start with, we all know that HH has been horrendously mismanaged the entire tour, doing them no favors when going up against HH's superior draft. If you still...

    Metagame STABmons

    (Sorry, my posted published before I finished it--not used to the new posting system on this forum :P) It's true that a lot of things hit Normal/Fighting super effectively, but I think you're underestimating Bewear's bulk. Here are things I've stayed in on: 252 Atk Landorus-Therian Dragon...

    Metagame STABmons

    I haven't logged in since the site redesign, but I will not stand this INJUSTICE. I will not be SILENT. Defensive Bewear, with Recover/Circle Throw/Toxic/filler, is the ONLY switch-in to Tyranitar in the game and is BETTER than some lame-ass offensive Extreme Speed sweeper. If it is unranked...

    Metagame STABmons

    Not disputing the stance on disallowing unreleased moves, but this is absolutely the wrong reasoning. If you could only use Pokemon and moves from OU, Precipice Blades, Origin Pulse, Dragon Ascent, etc. would be banned.
