    np: BW OU Suspect Testing Round 6 - Enter Sandman

    I also tested a few teams on fire with fire. It's been a few days since I last played, but from my experience over the past week I largely agree with Pocket. Garchomp is not so scary a pokemon that it's difficult to have teams with multiple checks with it, and it's not that hard to play so that...

    I also don't see how this an argument against a complex ban. If anything, it's an argument for one. When you're using Rain, your punishment for a bad team matchup isn't having to fight through Sand Veil hax, your punishment is dealing with this impossibly fast, ridiculously powerful pokemon...

    np: BW OU Suspect Testing Round 6 - Enter Sandman

    I've only played on the Suspect ladder a bit after a long hiatus (the last time I played, Thunderus was still legal), but I think the situation with Sand Veil Garchomp is largely the same as it was last time: neither Sand Veil nor Garchomp is particularly broken on their own, but the metagame...

    Books

    Speaking for myself, I think SuperFreakonomics is very journalistic while Freakonomics was scientific, if that makes sense. Freakonomics largely came from Levitt's own research and the emphasis was on the specific, unusual results of that research and the conclusions that could be drawn from...

    What is your favorite Harry Potter book?

    Election, The Devil Wears Prada, Up in the Air, Slumdog Millionaire, for more light, enjoyable movies from random to bad books. You can argue for movies and books that were good/amazing in different ways too, like Thank You For Smoking and Ghost World (respectively). Or landmarks from merely...

    BW OU Tabloo (bloos frontier team)

    I actually made a team a lot like this last period, with Latios over Gengar and Tyranitar over Gastrodon. This composition is obviously really strong, as Bloo's success in the Frontier attests too, but there are a few things that you still have serious issues with. One is HP Ground Volcarona...

    np: OU Suspect Testing Round 5 - Sandstorm (Excadrill/Thundurus Banned)

    If you're using Rotom-C as a tool against rain teams, you should honestly just use specially defensive Rotom-W for the ice and flying resistances. Rotom-C's strengths are his amazing resistance to electric and resistance to grass: he's fantastic on teams that would otherwise have a huge Rotom-W...

    np: OU Suspect Testing Round 5 - Sandstorm (Excadrill/Thundurus Banned)

    The absolute biggest draw of rain, that more people seem to have realized, isn't abusing it, it's having a functional team regardless of the weather. That's why Tornadus's usage has gone down. Rain's main "abusers" are pokemon like Starmie, Thundurus, and Rotom-W who are just solid pokemon that...
