  1. Resource SM OU Viability Ranking Thread

    I recall some pages back the ranking team had stated that they were not considering bringing duggy up to S-Rank, I'd like to ask why? Dugtrio is literally warping the meta around it, it's allowing some very dangerous mons like ZardY to run rampant, and is practically mandatory on stall. Without...

  3. CAP 23 CAP 23 - Part 1 - Concept Submissions

    Being completely honest, I am not too familiar with the CAP metagame, which is why I left my questions vague enough to be applicable to both OU and CAP. I figured a fair amount of metagame trends would transfer over (z wallbreakers being much more prominent in particular), and would love to see...
  4. CAP 23 CAP 23 - Part 1 - Concept Submissions

    Name: Z-Crystal Setup (ik it's boring but I couldn't come up with something better :p) Description This pokemon would rely on Z-Crystals in a more uncommon fashion: as a means of setting up primarily rather then for wallbreaking. Without the z-crystal, the pokemon would be hard pressed to pull...
  5. Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - The Robots - Metagrossite BANNED

    On the ability to "trap" megagross, there really isn't anything that can. Scizor's honestly the best, but that's only because hp fire isn't as common as other coverage moves. Magnezone gets slaughtered by Earthquake/Hammer Arm, and you won't ko if you've got a scarf. Plus you'll get ko'd...
  6. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    If we have to avoid a complex ban, I'd say a ban on Dazzling Majesty would be the best as Psychic Surge still keeps Triage and -ate in check for a while, but I'd like to bring up again the possibility of a complex ban on Set-up moves with an anti-priority ability again. Yes baton pass is a...

    Scarf Mewtwo-Y under Psychic Terrain would be good, but not unbeatable. It will get locked into a move, and that brings more counterplay to the table then we have now. As for baton pass, it takes longer to set up, which means that there's room for counterplay before Mewtwo-Y enters the field...
  9. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    Honestly, the way I see it is that the Anti-Priority is the problem. The use of Dazzling/QM is the thing that is pushing Shell Smash over the edge. I believe that if we remove DQM, Shell Smash will see significantly less usage. I can see your point though, I just believe that without...
  10. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    Why Focus sash is not the problem, you are correct. Shell Smash, however, isn't the problem either. Shell Smash is balanced because of the defense drops it gives, while the whole reason you use DQM and Sash is to completely mitigate those defense drops. If there was no DQM in this setup, you...
  11. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    So, we can all agree APS is broken and needs to be tuned down. But here's an idea: The term we've been using is Anti-Priority Setup. So what if we institite a ban on just that? Setup-moves with an Anti-Priority ability? This allows defensive mons to use Anti-Priority abilities to check/counter...
  12. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    Thank you Flint and Lefty for reigning thus discussion in. With that in mind, back to the main subject: Water Bubble. I realize that these are the definitions for OU, but I think it's good to use them as a jumping off point for BH shen talking about a suspect. According to these definitions...
  13. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    The general consensus here is that Innards out is cancer, and APS has too little counterplay (a lot if posts here seem to be trying to solve that by adding more counterplay too it) so... What are everyone's thoughts on an Innards out quickban, and then an APS Suspect test once WB's gotten the boot?
  14. BH Balanced Hackmons Suspects and Bans Thread

    It was more or less Psychic Terrain is easier due to more counterplay in general, but accurate overall. I agree that shell smash offers an absurd power boost, while dazzling/QM/PT negates all downsides (practically), but I don't think that banning shell smash is the best idea. Shell Smash...
