    Metagame Trademarked [OM of the Month]

    Skill Swap with the Rest trademark is a fairly reliable way to inflict sleep in this meta and honestly looks kinda busted to me. Even though the opposing mon gets to fully heal in the process, the 2 turns of sleep are typically devastating, and the abilities to sleep multiple mons and bypass...

    That reminds me, Dynamaxing is also pretty good at getting mons to survive through Perish Song turns, especially if you have the slowest mon (e.g. Brave, 0 Speed IVs, 0 Speed EVs Glastrier) and will therefore win once Perish Song mass KOs mons. In the meantime, I swear I pushed Aurumoth to 10th...

    CAP 28 - Part 13 - Pokedex Submissions

    Miasmaw does have wings: they're near the green portion of its body and between the front legs and the back legs. Sorry, but Miasmaw also looks significantly more like an adult than a nymph to me.

    CAP 28 - Part 12 - Flavor Ability Discussion

    Every Pokemon with Neutralizing Gas literally gets 3 different abilities. In the case of Weezing-Galar, it also has Levitate and Misty Surge to play with.

    SS OU Checkmate an OU sand team (Peaked #28 at 1989)

    Why is your Buzzwole Serious when it has no special attacks? I don't know whether you're actually running Impish or Adamant.

    CAP 28 - Part 12 - Flavor Ability Discussion

    I actually think Stench is in the top 2 abilities suggested so far (IMO). I cannot imagine a Neutralizing Gas being chemically potent enough to work to be odourless to all Pokemon.

    I've seen Sturdinja die to all sorts of ways on the ladder, including status (Lum Berry can stop this once), Sandstorm/Hail (Safety Goggles stops this), its own self-KO moves, and its own recoil moves. Even if you paralyze a Sturdinja, there is hope.

    Metagame Trademarked [OM of the Month]

    I checked your replay, and the "endured the hit" statement always occurs right when the Endure mon is switched in, regardless of whether the Endure mon takes a hit. Turn 29 is no exception. Endure not taking effect next turn after getting Endure Nihilego in after a KO also doesn't look unusual...

    Metagame Pure Hackmons

    Wait, how is Drifblim immune to Sheer Cold? If we're going for immunities to Final Gambit and as many OHKO moves as possible, I'd think that Froslass is tied with it.

    SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword and Shield Datamine Thread

    Granted, according to some of his other lines, Peony would still rather be using that part of that Calyrex statue as a pillow, even after you take it away from him and put it back on the statue.
