  1. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v4 (check out posts #483 and 484 for DLC1 info!)

    I've been using thunderpwoell's freeze-dry mixed focus sash mamoswine and it works wonders. Sash tanks and freeze dry ohko's vish, has a chance to OHKO seismitoad, while eq 2hko's toxapex and ohko's zeraora. This thing gets it's mileage, although those expecting the freeze-dry will be able to...

    Thanks. I'm just a total idiot. That's what I get for misreading SpA for Spe. Looking forward to trying this out.

    I'm new so maybe I am missing some spicy meme but freeze dry doesn't seem to OHKO vish so I don't get it. Unless it's supposed to sash T1 and outspeed band. But then you'd lose to scarf. Could you explain it a bit? thanks in advance

  5. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 2 - The Three of Us

    There are uncountable instances in pokemon's history where items that are weaker in a vacuum are chosen to beat certain popular threats. If we could just gauge everything by power level in a vacuum we wouldn't even need a meta and we could just pick the 6 best mons with the best items in a...

    I mean if you are that worried about arena trap where you never want to be in a situation where you can't switch, there are tools to use. Don't use mons dugtrio can beat+don't use mons dugtrio can trap+shed shell. It's not like there's nothing you can do, you are building your team and you know...

    There's plenty I don't know so if I'm saying something objectively wrong please just correct me and don't be a jerk about it, I am saying all of this in earnest.The thing is dugtrio doesn't beat every pokemon he can trap. Sure you can't really stop him once you enter a match, if you make one bad...

    Thanks, as I said I am still a total beginner so more experience will help a lot. I'll try 1v1s sometime. This was a really clear explanation that really helped, thanks.

    I guess what I'm thinking is in situations like this it seems kinda like Rock-Paper-Scissors to a beginner like me. If you assume your opponent is as smart as you, then you can predict their play and outplay them at level 2. But if they aren't smart enough they might not even play into your...

    How do I predict plays as and against protect? Ex the opponent knew I had protect and I knew he knew, so I saved it and threw hazards. He had DD, I thought he would DD. He attacked instead and did 40%. I assume he will DD or switch this time so I throw hazards again and he attacks again, down to...

    Thanks for the answer, very precise and helpful.

    What's a good way to abuse relatively speedy offensive threats that in this case don't run choice items? Ex. Dracovish, dragapult, hydreigon. Is it better to go faster than them and hope for a OHKO, or are you supposed to try and tank these mighty boys with a wall?
