  1. Other Discussion: Which Pokemon will Fairy impact the most?

    What i personally think is more significant than that dragon immunity is the resistances to both dark/fighting at the same time, which makes dark/fighting a lot less of a threatening coverage combo. For example, Hydreigon gets walled by most of the major fairy types, since they can take absorb...
  2. Data Battle Mechanics Research

    This needs more testing, but I think hyper beam moves might be back to Gen I mechanics. I just had a battle where my rival one-hitted my Klefki with Hydrocannon and then attacked my Heliolisk the next turn. Don't have any fully evolved starters so looking for Giga Impact or Hyper Beam TMs to...
  3. Pokewood the Metagame

    Hrm, I see that this thread is almost dead, and it's because if we want to make a metagame out of these "new" pokemon, it will require a little elbow grease on the community's part. I think something similar to CAP could be really productive and informative, but in order to work it would need to...
  4. Pokewood the Metagame

    Yo Molk can I be your wife? I want to make you as happy as you make me :P Anyways, it sucks that these Pokemon don't have "real movepools" to speak of but don't they have to have something they learn for use in the Pokewood movies? I guess I'm still unclear on the exact pokewood mechanics...
  5. Au natrual: a alternate metagame proposal.

    What gen V game mechanic changes? EDIT: uh uh i'm gonna make a list Sleep Counter resetting on switch New moves like Shell Smash, Icicle Crash, Wild Crash, Dragon Tail, Circle Throw, Scald, Clear Smog, and I can't really think of many others Tail Glow being +3 Some random abilities...
  6. Smeargle's Studio General Thread: Spriting and Banners go here!

    Hey artists and especially spriters on smeargle's studio! As you may or may not have heard there's a bunch of enemies used for Pokewood/Pokestar Studios in BW2 that have BST/ability/typing/movepool, and can be encountered by hacking into the game. I'd really like to implement them on Showdown at...
  7. Pokewood the Metagame

    Just FYI apparently you get an error when you try to catch these guys in a Pokeball, though I guess that's why you'd use whatever this fossil modifier thing is? Anyways, if you're hacking in the data for these guys is probably right in line after the data for all the regular pokemon/forms, if...
  8. Pokewood the Metagame

    You'll note none of those zombies (little girl/janitor/old man) appear in the random battles with Pokewood stuff shown in that youtube video, and that only everything starting with the UFO onwards has the 650+ numbering scheme that probably denotes these fakemons. I'm guessing like Brycen's...
  9. Pokewood the Metagame

    Just to make one thing clear, it's probably impossible to use these monsters on catridge, even with hacks. They don't have backsprites, since they're supposed to be enemies. However, since they definitely have BSTs and movepools, though we have no idea how diverse or limited the latter may be. I...
  10. Pokewood the Metagame

    Okay I'm gonna make this simple because this is a whole new metagame we really don't know much about. It's not about making everything usable or exploring metagame concepts or really doing anything other than something stupid because it's awesome. I'm talking about Pokewood. Each of the movies...
  11. Haxorus

    Nah dude I'd love what you're smoking but Rivalry kinda sucks no matter what gender you choose. The only fixed gender pokemon in OU are Blissey and Lati@s and if the rivalry boost is gonna matter against ANY of them you're playing Haxorus wrong. Rivalry's benefits end up being kind of random...
  12. Moody

    And nobody should forget about Moody Smeargle now being official, since with Spore, Baton Pass, Stored Power, Ingrain and literally anything else you can think of (though I think those four are the most notably relevant that nothing else with moody gets) it basically can exploit Moody to its...
  13. B&W Research Thread

    If you baton pass an imposter ditto a sub, does it keep the sub and transform?
  14. Shuckle

    Shuckle's been one of my favorites for a long time, and it seems Gen V has given him enough random improvements to be usable outside of sets that mainly rely on Evasion/not really doing anything. The problem is it's still really hard for him to beat anything, especially since if whatever you've...
  15. Espeon (Analysis)

    I know I'm probably not the first to say this, but Stored Power is a move basically tailor-made for the new Espeon. In a Baton Pass team it will OHKO everything in the game that's not Dark-type, and outside of one it still synergizes amazingly with Magic Bounce and Calm Mind. The only problem is...
