    Metagame Linked

    Bug report here. I've been running Encore/Disable Sableye to amusing effect, but there's a bug with Encore. Replay: Turn 15 Cinderace switches in on an Encore, which locked it into its last-used move from when it was last on the field...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    This sounds like a great metagame! I assume that the physical/special split will be revoked also (i.e. all normal moves are physical, all water moves are special, etc.)? In regards to fixing types, I think Hematite made a great suggestion in his reply:

    Hey flint, just saw this thread. I haven't been active since 2014, but I had a great time with you and the other BH guys back in Gen V BH. You basically pioneered hyper offense BH, and you guys actually succeeded in popularizing the meta; I remember when you could see all the users in the OMs...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm aware that this is just another stat recalculation metagame, which are commonly rejected ideas, but I believe this specific premise is more interesting and intuitive. Flipped has an interesting premise in that most Pokemon in the metagame function in totally...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    Mirrormons Premise: Each base stat is "mirrored" around the average value of its base stats. In other words: New Stat = BST/3 - Stat In the case of Tyranitar, 100/134/110/95/100/61 becomes 100/66/90/105/100/139 This premise turns each Pokemon's weak stats into strong stats and vice versa...

    Metagame Camomons

    Just wanted to throw a defensive core out there, if nothing else they're great switch-ins to a lot of physical threats. Clefable @ Leftovers Ability: Unaware EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 Spe Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Moonblast - Fire Blast - Calm Mind - Moonlight Gastrodon @ Leftovers Ability...

    Resource OM Bazaar

    This team has generally been doing pretty well in Camomons, though I'm only in mid-1300's atm. Advice appreciated. Clefable [Fire/Fairy] is a more defensive set with the ability to become an offensive threat if given the opportunity. I tried Magic Guard LO but it was just a little too frail...

    Bug Reports v3 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    Edit: Sorry all, didn't notice this was already resolved. When a Pokemon uses Dynamax on Showdown, fractional HP transactions (heal pulse, leech seed, life orb, etc.) are based on the current (increased) HP stat of the Dynamaxed Pokemon. However in the games, these transactions are based on the...

    SM OU Phalanx Formation

    Phalanx Formation Introduction I haven't been serious about OU since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, but I decided to make a competitive, breedable OU team for battling friends. Getting down to business, I prefer a more balanced play style that revolves around wearing down the...

    SM UU Underrated in UnderUsed

    Thanks for the awesome rate, pokemon sparrow, you answered a lot of questions I couldn't quite put into words. I really appreciate your suggestions, especially since you made an effort to keep their roles intact. I have past experience using Gliscor, Scizor, and Tentacruel so I should be able to...
