    Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v3

    I don't think it's possible to overhype 125/125 offenses with physical ghost/fighting stabs and technician. It'll be laughable if the counsel doesn't quickban it.

    Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v3

    In policy review, it was brought up that one of the council members mentioned PR as an important factor to consider in suspect testing, which is pretty silly if true. If the purpose of a suspect test if to create a balanced metagame, PR is really pretty irrelevant. Let's be real. Smogon is the...

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 3 - Beauty and the Boost - Pheromosa is now banned

    I don't think there's much to say, since everyone is well aware of what a monster Pheromosa is. Around the time its special sets starting gaining popularity, it was obvious that it was going to be an inevitable ban. It's nice that we're finally taking a step in the right direction, though, and...

    Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v2

    No one's denying that there will always be top threats, but when you have something like mega-metagross in the tier for as long as we've had it, even though it has a zero percent chance of surviving a suspect test and might as well be quickbanned, I don't think his complaint is illegitimate...

    No need. Haven't you heard? We're totally down with absurd generational power creeps since the suspect process in OU is hot garbage.

    Announcement SM OU Suspect Process, Round 2 - Dirt

    ding ding ding. This is the problem that needs to be addressed in the meta, and this suspect test definitely doesn't do that. Just finished getting reqs. Voting no ban for sure. I could have supported a Dugtrio suspect test if it happened much later, but, if Dugtrio even is a problem (which I...

    Announcement SM OU Suspect Process, Round 2 - Dirt

    That's a bad summary. If you're going to say something is ridiculous, you should attempt to back it up. I'm not convinced that Dugtrio is actually worth banning, especially given that the arguments for banning are mostly related to how it makes checking some of the most threatening pokemon in...

    Announcement SM OU Suspect Process, Round 2 - Dirt

    I'm fairly neutral about this suspect test. I think a dugtrio suspect is justified, but I think that the timing of it is wrong. One of the issues about Dugtrio that's been brought up is that there are already limited measures to deal with a lot of the big threats right now and that Dugtrio...

    Stall in SM OU

    It's really premature to suggest that stall as a playstyle is currently problematic. Stall has traditionally been a playstyle that a lot of people underprepare for, which I think is the basis for why some people throw around the claim that it's excessively restrictive in teambuilding. As has...

    Genesect: Ban

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Digital Love - Genesect is now banned

    After laddering for reqs, I have to be perfectly honest and say that I find the genesect meta somewhat more enjoyable, mostly because it being gone really highlights how busted Greninja and Lele are. Nonetheless, I feel very strongly that the correct vote is to ban Genesect because there's no...
