    to B+ I feel like Hydreigon slipped past this last VR update. This nomination is pretty simple: Pokemon that are rising give Hydreigon headaches, and Pokemon that are dropping Hydreigon has good matchups against. Slowking's meteoric fall is what really hurts Hydreigon the most simply because...

    I think mew needs to drop. This is pretty simple to understand. With more Pokémon being able to use Defog and toxapex starting to carry toxic mew has lost a lot of what made it good before. Tyranitar rising also is a problem for it because all it can really do to a ttar is Willo wisp and if it...

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 5 - I Can't Escape Myself (ARENA TRAP BANNED)

    Arena trap isn't op it's just really unhealthy for metagame development. People have already explained a ton above me so I won't go into detail but it's not as op as some people are making it out to be. If it was then Pokemon like Heatran and Toxapex wouldn't be as good as they are. There is...

    Ur wrong there buster brown. Sure if Latias is already in and Pinsir tries to come in then yeah Pinsir is gonna die to a thunder bolt who the hell would bring a pinsir in on Latias anyway. But in the situation you're saying Pinsir would already be at plus 2 and Mega Latias needs a calm mind...

    Volcorona is a sweeper. Unless you're in a shit position, you shouldn't be using Volcorona unless you can guarantee win from a setup. Yeah Volcorona is gonna die to Mawiles sucker punch but would you be setting up with it if something can still threaten you. Your Toxapex point doesn't really...

    Terrible comparison. Aegislash warped the meta around it while Greninja is adapting to the meta. Don't compare these two Aegisalsh is leagues ahead of Greninja. I'm sick of this versatility shit. Versatility is good but it doesn't single handedly keep a mon out of s rank or put it there. So ur...

    This seems more like personal bias rather than valid arguments. Latios does more damage which is just better. Latias cannot stay healthy better than Latios simply because they both will always switch into resisted moves if offensive. So if you use Latias as an offensive Pokemon it can switch in...

    Mawile A - A- Little more controversial here but Recent meta changes have not been kind to Mawile. Outside of ttar usage rising we're looking at Tangrowth dropping Volcorna being popular still Keldeo dropping off a little Heatran coming in hot Pinsir gives this this competition as a mega...

    These are the most generic arguments for a volcornoa drop ever man. "It requires team support" so does every mon except for like Lando-T. It's over prepared for. Not really 101+ scarfers on offensive teams is not some new trend that wasn't around before it rose. "This Pokemon has Pokemon that...

    Anyone thought about a keldeo drop? With magearna becoming as popular as it is keldeo's scarf set has one of its best answers running around on a lot of different teams. Combine that with the fact that he lets in magearna for free who is arguably the best sweeper right now. Keldeo was discussed...

    I knew this argument would come up eventually. Lando-T should not be S+ because it is not mandatory on teams nor does the meta revolve entirely around that Pokemon. Listen the reason Lando-T is not S+ is not because other Pokemon don't compare to it, that's not how tiers work. No it's because...

    The Zygarde arguments are so flawed for S. For example the person above me says that DD and Sub coil abuse the choice band set to an extent. But it's pretty damn easy to tell what set it is by looking at the team. No strong physical breakers? It's probably choice band. No late game cleaners...

    Funny you should talk about not saying info we know because you did that all for your magearna to S. Listen there is a reason Zygarde didn't move and I'm willing to bet Magearna is no different. They're not bad, it's that Lando-T is so ridiculously good at everything to the point where nothing...

    To be fair Fini's man niche is as a defogger so it's probably coming in on hazards. Although thunder is unreliable and tbh will probably miss. I think it's pretty simple for Amoongus at this point, drop it. Tapu koko is popular for that spore, Amoongus is weak af, Tangrowth checks more...

    I am not quite sure what you are saying about Dugtrio here. It doesn't need pursuit against Gengar because earthquake destroys it. I mean isn't pursuit kinda useless because unless the mon Dugtrio is in on has u turn the mon can't switch out so I'm a little confused about that...
