    I really don’t think Trick Room has changed much as a playstyle since Zygarde’s ban. It definitely hasn’t gotten considerably worse. While I don’t have an opinion really on Cress or Uxie, I do not think Marowak should drop. If anything, it has gotten better without Zygarde as it resisted its...

    Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    On LO Clefable I would run Psychic > Thunderbolt to nail Poisons on the switch, such as Mega-Venu while still being super effective against Toxapex. Could even use Psyshock to do a lot of damage to Volcorona. Clefable is interesting because it has so many attacking options.

    Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    I don’t think Trick Room is really something that has changed much since the introduction of Stakataka, with Magearna still being the standout user of it in OU. That being said it still has huge potential on the ladder although it’s predictability might hinder it somewhat in tourney play. What...

    Hasn’t been very long but from what I’ve played, Air Balloon Heatran has become infinitely more valuable. It allows you to potentially switch into and set up Stealth Rock on Landorus or fire off even more Magma Storms to trap/Taunt its counters. Once its balloon is broken (by U-turn) you still...

    SM OU Experimental Stall [Plateaued at mid-high 1500s]

    Hello, I would try out Will O Wisp on Volc over Defog to help against Tyranitar who will otherwise 2HKO all your mons if it is not burned. This will also help against Mawile, Landorus, and Zygarde who think Flametrower is your only attack. As others have pointed out, Torn. Char-X, and Heatran...

    SM OU Help Improve my team and break to 1600+

    Hello, you should mention what direction you want from this team. Is the goal to sweep with Staraptor in the end or slowly where down the opponent? I would replace Breloom with Tapu Bulu. Check out the Smogon analyses for sets, but it be worth it to try a few. The reason is Breloom is completely...

    SM OU Mega-Zam Terrain TR (New Peak 1932, #30)

    Really cool team! I think you are using the best Magearna set, perfect combo of moves to lure Ferro and Heatran which are otherwise annoying. I think the easiest mon to try switching out would be Stakataka or Mimikyu and I would try switching out one or the other for a more powerful...

    I think Mola is a pretty bad Zygarde counter. It sets up a Substitute with impunity and proceeds to sweep. You basically need another Zygarde counter in your team if you use Mola to handle these variants. And if you switch in Mola thinking its Banded or doesn’t have Sub then it gets an...

    Zapdos is useful outside of paralysis though as it can counter common SR setters and can be tailored to one’s need with either Heat Wave or Hidden Power Ice. The main use of Zapdos is Defog, not paralysis, though its a nice add on. It can counter Ferrothorn, non-Rockium Lando, M-Scizor...

    Crawdaunt is a beast! I'm using it now and definitely helps now that Blacephalon is rising. The potential electric-weakness isn't felt so much either with Lightning Rod Marowak. Thanks

    SM OU Reborn Shedinja Stall (Peaked #1, #2 and #3)

    Awesome team, the triple top of the ladder is insanely impressive imo. I think 244 HP on Gliscor will allow it to recover more from Poison Heal. Some threats that might not be that common are Serperior and Leech Seed/SD Tapu Bulu. Serperior in particular looks deadly since it doesn’t care about...

    A serious problems to Shiftry's viability is it needs another Pokemon to set up Sun, a fairly niche type of weather already. So you need a Charizard-Y, a mega slot, to seriously make use of it. Then on top of that, once Supersonic Strike is used, Hurricane's accuracy is only 50% in the Sun.

    SM OU Quintessence of Hyper Offensive Trick Room

    Mastodon - Quintessence Introduction Great song worth sharing. I haven't posted an RMT or any thread in years. After Gen 4 I stopped playing until Gen 6 came out and it's been on and off since then, with a resurgence in Gen 7 (I usually play on my phone). I sense I will dipping away from...
