    SS OU Chesto Rest Gyara HO (Peak #12)

    Hiya! I'm really glad to see this team lineup, you're having success with a lot of elements I tried to fit on various HO squads but just never quite managed to get right. In particular I have been trying to fit Toxicroak but was just never quite manage to get the right set. It was the air...

    SS OU All Out Attack Team (or close to it)

    I fully agree with Chimp here, a wish passer Clef will really help squeeze the most out of ttar. I think opting for Aromatherapy for its 4th slot will be ideal, since your team relies on ttar and exca a lot for offense you really don't want them to get ruined by a stray burn. You can also fit...

    Tournament SPL XI: OU Discussion

    I want to talk about the game between teal and talah, specifically the really cool team that Teal brought. I think this was a really cool and innovative take on HO that's well adapted to the current fat meta. Here are some thoughts I have: The presence of Weezing-Galar was the most unique thing...

    SS OU Obstagoon and Conkeldurr in Double Guts Offense

    Hey! I think that conk+goon is a really smart anti meta core that will have a great matchup against a lot of the slow, fat teams that are running around right now. I think there are a few things you can do to improve it though. The biggest weakness I see in your team is fast stuff that can...

    This is a really great primer on the basics of HO. Excellent post! For those thinking of trying it out, some great win-cons to base a team around in this meta are :gyarados:, :kommo-o: and :hawlucha:. Great mons to consider for any HO team are :mew:, :excadrill:, :bisharp: and :grimmsnarl:.

    In full agreement here. I've been running a team based on Specs Pelipper since I saw it in SPL and it's actually quite strong in this meta. The only thing that hard checks it is Rotom-W (which still doesn't like to switch in on Weather Ball much) and that's been quite uncommon lately. It's hard...

    Here's a couple I think could be included. :weavile: Ice shard :aegislash: Offensive pivot I think everything else has been mentioned already.

    I can't weigh in on what's better for defensive Kommo-o, but I have a few hundred games under my belt with Clanger Kommo-o and I feel fairly confident that Soundproof is the superior ability for that set. Clanger is used almost exclusively on HO teams as a win condition, where it usually sits...

    SS OU Spiky Hair (SD Excadrill + Specs Toxtricity BO)

    Heya! I agree with everything Chimp said, just want to expand on his ideas. First off, here's a standard Mandibuzz set that would work well for you. Mandibuzz @ Heavy-Duty Boots Ability: Overcoat EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD Careful Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Roost - Defog - U-turn - Foul Play I...

    SS OU spicy kimchi pancakes offense [peak 1730]

    Conk is a little tougher, I usually try to put screens up and then sack Grimm so I can use either my own conk or Gyarados. Most conks now don't run Thunderpunch but if they do then Kommo-o with screens can usually tank a hit.

    SS OU spicy kimchi pancakes offense [peak 1730]

    Conkeldurr can comfortably 2hko with EQ (and can even 2hko with Facade if rocks are up) and doesn't care about Scald. Bisharp throat chop also 2hkos at +2 so Pex can't switch into it, and if it isn't running Haze it may be screwed anyway. Gyarados EQ will 2hko from +1 and ohko from +3. Kommo-o...

    Hippo is so underrated this gen it's criminal. Whirlwind spam is still great, sand is still great, and this thing is bulky as hell. Most wallbreakers need setup nowadays and hippo laughs at them with its big windy mouth. I've been stalled out by this thing more times than I'd care to think about.

    Hey everyone, I'm Jediment, going by kimchijeon on Showdown, and I'm back with another offense team. After the Dynamax ban, I spent some time re-evaluating my previous Sticky Web team and ultimately ended up with a totally new beast. I managed to take this team much further up the ladder than...

    I haven't used Eldegoss myself but it's an outside pick that can actually be quite annoying. Grass typing is both extremely rare and extremely good right now, so every grass type with remotely decent stats can find utility sheerly from walling the huge glut of water types in the tier right now...
