  • Yo Pinkacross!

    Love your channel, really helped me understand how to play Offensive/HO teams.
    Anyway Ive been using your advice andsome of my own, I got to 1634 elo Gen 8 OU for the first time ever using HO.

    Just read over my comments and realized they sounded kinda harsh. Its not a terrible team by any means and I appreciate the creativity! :)

    You’re all good man :)
    Hi, I was wondering if I could get advice on this HO. I took some inspiration from other sets I have seen such as the Normal Gem Landorus on your YouTube video in order to make a double Meteor Beam core with Magnezone, as Nihilego and Weavile struggle against Ferrothorn and Melmetal. Let me know what you think. Thank you in advance! https://pokepast.es/f23adeff8b196ca9

    Urshifu as well is also very difficult. You may want to try fitting in a Water resist somewhere (my personal favorite is Volcanion). I wonder if you could just replace Magnezone for Volcanion. Frankly, Weavile can run Low Kick over Triple Axel and destroy Steels anyway. Removing Magnezone does make Scarf Kartana more threatening, though. Test and see if Urshifu is indeed the problem I think it is.

    I've been testing and Urshifu is definitely an issue. Should I use a Choice Specs set or a bulky HDB defog set? I'm thinking if I really wanna answer Urshifu and do better against scarf Kartana it should be the latter. Thanks!
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    I agree. You may have to make other changes if Scarf Kartana is a recurring issue, but for now give this a shot! :)
    Pinkacross, you’ve single-handedly made me play OU. Thanks.

    PS: You are the best ladder builder out there.

    Thanks for the help! I just wanted to see if I could make Diggersby similar to Ash-Greninja from G7, where it hits hard and sets Spikes on anything attempting to switch in, letting it make progress whenever it needs to. I see where you're coming from, though.

    Here's the updated team: Prospekt's March: Diggersby Offense (pokepast.es)

    This team is scared a LOT by Weavile. Your only real resist is a Specially Defensive Clefable. I'd try to adjust to avoid that weakness.
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Also no removal is not ideal, fitting in Defog would be better.
    You really made the channel! I like it!
    Pinkacross

    This looks decent. There are no real threats in a conventional "you lose to this" type of way, but I recommend testing and seeing if your team can sustain momentum and get Dragapult and Aegislash in frequently enough. Only 2 U-turners is a bit low, and Toxapex can be a momentum drain. Lmk how the testing goes! :]

    Thanks! I ran some games on this team and was also thinking if I should add a port-user or put a ejection button. Also, I find it hard to deal with dragonite sometimes, but probably that’s my skill problem.
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Not a skill issue at all, my bad for not noticing that. The standard Ice Punch EQ Dnite is a near certain 6-0. I recommend using Colbur Berry Slowbro with Body Press, Slack Off, Ice Beam, and Teleport over Toxapex. If you switch out any other pokemon for something that counters or semicounters Weavile, you can add in Future Sight over anything but Teleport.
    Omg you made the channel :O. Ima go watch right now

    Update watched the vid, loved it and can't wait to see more. Although I will say I refuse to listen to what you should have on a team cause that's just the type of builder I am
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Thanks :). Yea I knew youd ignore me lol
    Yo congrats on the badge, you deserve it!

    I just wanted to ask something, I’ve been stuck on 1400-1600 elo and I can’t seem to get past 1600. Sometimes I even get as low as 1300 for some odd reason.
    Should I be changing my play style? Use different Teams? I have no idea what to do.

    (I’m at 1594 elo currently, but I always lose the battle when I get here.)

    The hazard stack I built is simple and good for ladder. I dont have the link but you can find it by typing /rfaq s in the OU room.

    Can you give me a breakdown of that team, I can’t really understand it.
    LuckyBomber
    LuckyBomber
    Wait nvm
    Hi Pinka c:
    I am trying to get descriptions and or give a last look at the ou room samples. I wanted to see if there was smth you wanted to add/change to yours or if there's any specific notes I should add to the description. You can message me in Suwawa#8387 if that's easier.

    Nice badge :]
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Thank you! Sorry for the late response. The team is pretty simple: stack hazards with Landorus and Ferrothorn, abuse Defog with Bisharp, and use the core of Slowbro + Victini + Koko to break. If the description comminicates that, I dont see any need for a change. :]
    congrats!

    Thank you! It was very kind of them to give me this badge.

    Thanks thats very nice of you to say. :)
    Hey, i haven't been on in a very long time but i improved quite a bunch!
    I decided to make a team based off Necrozma (1 of my favorite mons) and it is a decent team however it has issues with Sweepers. Any idea on how to potentially improve this team or suggest good teammates for Necrozma?

    https://pokepast.es/fba0ef05b2a1c0b2
    I recommend making a Necrozma RMT, your Lanturn one was awesome!

    I agree, Gengar + Mandibuzz seems like a very strong core. This team has no obvious structural errors, I'd recommend testing on ladder and seeing how it goes! (Warning: Volcarona is VERY scary for you).

    Thanks! I will try it
    Hey Pinkacross,

    Thanks for your help last time, I was wondering if you know any samples or teams with Zeraora that would work well against current metagame. Thanks!
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Hey sorry I dont personally have any Zeraora teams, but if you ask around the OU room I'm sure someone would be able to provide one. I know Fusien has a good one.
    Hey there Pinkacross.

    Ive been struggling to ladder, and I wanted to know if you have any HO teams that i could use.
    Currently I’m sitting around 1300-1500.
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Due to galarian slowbro, this HO is even more consistent than most HOs, an already inconsistent playsyle. Still, this team seems solid and has all the required elements. It can definitely work and it looks very fun. :)
    LuckyBomber
    LuckyBomber
    I’ve lost all my 50/50’s with slowbro sadly. Also I’ve gotten higher than 1500 with this team.
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Congratulations! Also, odds of quick claw/draw are 44% I believe.
    Hey Pinkacross,

    I've made a hydreigon balance team that's taken me to the 1600s. Weavile and garchomp are annoying to deal with though, and I'm not sure how to fix this other than replacing blacephelon, which I don't want to do because it has been extremely useful for the team.

    Thank you!

    I see. Perhaps try a different breaker. Choice Band Buzzwole can provide some solid breaking power, and alongside Swords Dance Rillaboom it can threaten a lot of defensive cores. Blace could work but the main issue I see is its inconsistency and lack of defensive utility. I'd recommend you give Buzzwole a shot and see if that works.

    CB Buzzwole has been working pretty well. Thanks for your help!

    Glad to hear it. :)
    Hey buddy, another great team, sun can get really nasty.

    That being said, I haven't seen you post a Scale Shot Garchomp team. Do you have a good team with it?
    Hey Pinkacross, I really respect your work. I was just wondering if you could give me some links or list the common OU teams which are used in high elo. Thanks.
    Hey Pinkacross, i'm attempting to to build a semi-trick room team after hearing that full TR is borderline unviable.
    https://pokepast.es/40ae38963af1ab08

    here is my draft, would love to hear feedback.
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    I actually really like the look of this! Run Scald over Ice Beam on Slowbro since Heatran is a big threat, but otherwise looks really good! Let me know how it goes! :)
    Pinkacross
    Pinkacross
    Oh dude you're running 0 Speed IV with a lot of speed investment in Melmetal. Your Melm also had a 0 attack IV LOL. I made some quick fixes, heres the team https://pokepast.es/72b81ef1051c2d5a
    Lord Xen III
    Thank you for all the feedback haha. I'll let you know how it goes !!
