    On The Radar Vol. 2 [See Post #336]

    No harm in locking the thread anyway, pretty much nothing new has been added in days it's very clear 95% of people already agree on what needs to be done with darm.

    Like someone said earlier you wouldn't ban Multiscale in UU cuz only Dragonite has it so you can use that ban to nerf Dragonite, or let's say in the future ban Libero to nerf Cinderace since it is technically a unique ability. If you're banning abilities you're admitting aren't broken to...

    The form is tied to Zen Mode so like how old Darm was banned from UU and Zen mode was still banned despite obvs not being broken the same applies here. If Garchomp were to have been banned for example, Mega Garchomp wouldn't be banned as well even if technically the form change is tied to...

    Darm is clearly unhealthy in the metagame and we already wasted 2 weeks on a dynamax suspect when it was very clearly broken and the outcome is inevitable. I am in favor of just quickbanning Darm but if for some reason we do waste time on a suspect again Darm should absolutely not be on the...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion (Usage stats in post #944)

    I do not know why people continue to ask about different ways to modify the mechanic to make it weaker (something that won't be done) instead of just admitting the mechanic is broken. If you think it isn't broken fine, talk about what you think the counterplay is and why you think it isn't...

    Sword & Shield Battle Mechanics Research

    Has anyone found out how much Punk Rock boosts sounds moves yet?

    It'll be interesting to see just how much Punk Rock boosts sound moves now that we know it has an 80BP stab move and a 140BP move that'll get boosted by it, has potential to be a big time wall breaker.

    It's not, easily the best physical dragon stab there is. With just 100 special attack how much that will catch on unless the coverage is just way better, but like I deadass dont think you would be able to touch something like Unaware Clef.

    These are the exact Aegi stats, probably safe to assume the nerf applies to its attack stats in blade form as well

    Pretty sure them not adding any in gen 7 and removing them entirely in gen 8 is about as much of a nail in the coffin as you need.

    They dont add DLC because they charge full price for a game that's basically DLC a year later.

    I mean you're still taking into account ability Diggersby and Gumshoos both had a BST under 425 and Stoutland wasnt the early game rodent of gen 5, watchog was and he has 420 BST which is about standard.

    I know the Battle Tower ones are accurate or extremely close to being so but in the case of like Greedent the estimates seem weird to me unless Gamefreak decided this was the gen they'd reward the early game rodent with an extra 50 BST

    Almost all the estimates that have been boosted are too high because they dont take into account the fact that pokemon that high level are going to have EVs just by being in the party at some time. For example the 15IV 0EV calculations for Greedent had it at 467 BST when the early game rodents...

    On the topic of a national dex metagame I don't see how it would be anything else other than gen 8 mechanics with old pokemon back in...I don't see either Z moves nor megas being a part of that metagame as they were clearly never meant to exist in a game with dynamax.
