    Research What's your least favorite gen 8 pokemon?

    I like GMax Eevee's design, but I wish they just gave in an item like Light Ball for Pikachu or let us use starter Eevee from LGPE since it would actually be usable then. Most of the Pokemon introduced in SwSh are fine design-wise. Some like Spectrier and Grimsnarl are a bit too bland or weird...

    Cosplay

    I've never done cosplay, though the thought has crossed my mind on more than a few occasions. The biggest issue is really the cost. Lets say, hypothetically, I wanted to cosplay as Tanjiro from Demon Slayer. Buying a costume, a sword, and a wig would cost around $130, which is.... actually a...

    https://pokepast.es/f1d85f73b52da132 Trying to build a team around SD Kommo-o, but I'm having some trouble making it work due to fairies. Other set up sweepers like Volcarona have their own roadblocks (Heatran, Tapu Fini on occasions) but setting up a sweep for it still isn't too difficult...

    Not sure if I should be asking about this mon since it wasn't mentioned in the post, but why wasn't Heracross added to the rankings?

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Yeah, I agree with this sentiment (specifically for Defog Corviknight). In most cases where I found it threatening, it was typically being used on a stall build. Something like Tapu Koko or Victini coming for free was significantly less troublesome when there is a sturdy mon like Hippowdon that...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Well, the situations where Freeze is debilitating certainly depends on the context. In a match-up like, say, a 1v1 between specially Defensive Dragonite and Corviknight, a Freeze could actually be considered beneficial since it makes it easier for Corviknight to PP stall out Dragonite. That...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Yeah, I do think the EV spread could be optimized a bit more. That being said, against Landorus-T and Garchomp specifically, it is possible to significantly lower their damage output with Grassy Terrain support. It also pairs well with Leftovers, giving Blaziken more longevity.

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Not sure if I'm in the minority, but I feel that Heavy Duty Boots has become a weaker item in the current metagame (specifically on non-Rocks weak Pokemon). On Pokemon like Zeraora, Scizor, etc, it normally feels like you'd want the effects of a more useful item like Leftovers or a power...

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Assuming you are referring to me, my b. I got the two threads confused since both of them were discussing hindering abilities lol. I'm not sure. If I remember correctly, in the Japanese version of Diamond and Pearl, Regigigas would still have its Attack and Speed halved for 5 turns, even if...

    Uh, this isn't exactly a replay. Just an empty room that timed out.

    Little things you like about Pokémon

    Out of all the intentionally bad abilities, Slow Start is the one that angers me the most. 6v6 matches requires a ton of switching to keep up momentum, pivot into the correct moves, etc. Requiring Regigigas to stay in on other mons for 5 freaking turns is a massive asking price that is almost...

    Honestly, I wouldn't call those defensive checks too reliable, espically since they don't have reliable recovery. SpDef Lando and Heatran get blown back by Hydro Pump, while Tapu Fini gets worn down by Thunderbolt, putting all of them in Shadow Ball range. 252 SpA Choice Specs Dragapult Hydro...

    What are Pokémon that failed as single-staged and why?

    Can't really speak about its performance in-game, but from my experience using it in Random battles, Eiscue is actually insane with Dynamax. You basically set-up the Belly Drum for free thanks to Ice Face, and you can immediately recover Ice Face with a fast Max Hailstorm. If they break Ice Face...
