    Probably been asked, but is suspecting Blazikenite a possibility? Or does it completely fix all of non mega Blaziken's problems in the meta?

    Not 100% sure if this question belongs here, so apologies in advance. Wondering why Mega Kangaskhan is banned this generation. I imagine there's good reasons for it, but in terms or damage output it doesn't seem much different than something with tough claws. Is it purely because of the...

    Thanks for the more detailed response. It's possible that this forum just isn't the place for that sort of meta. I can see what you mean, although I do think that if pex and clefable had that much of a stranglehold they could just be banned. Anyways, no need to discuss it further, makes sense...

    If you read my post you'd see I made a distinction with ultra beasts. So no need to get technical...again. And if the Pokemon you mentioned above completely outperformed those I mentioned in every way they wouldn't even be ranked. Anyways, It doesn't really matter as I'm in no position to...

    Lol, if I'm not the first person I think that proves that people might want to actually see it. I believe I've heard of what a legendary pokemon is before...obviously you have mons like Articuno and Guzzlord who end up at the bottom, but there's no denying that on average the...

    Does there exist a meta game that's the same as ou but no mythic/legendary/ultra beast pokemon are allowed? Always curious how my favorite pokemon would fair if the power creep from the years of mythic pokemon wasn't an issue

    Right, thanks for the detailed response! I can see what you mean. I take it that running four attacks: stabs, and edge/quake combo with life orb would still be heavily outclassed by other frail breakers like Nidoking? The only reason I'm even comparing is that Lucario's coverage just seems so...

    Hope this question isn't painfully obvious, but is there any hope for Lucario in this meta? With Nidoking skyrocketing to stardom this gen, its made me think of old breakers like gen 4 Lucario. I know Nidoking's stab combination is better in the meta, but Lucario also has amazing coverage...

    Is Urshifu R totally outclassed in the meta?

    Think its pretty self evident that NatDex is different, yes. Was more wondering if the inclusion of z moves was what put it over the top since whatever checks there are in OU are also in NatDex

    Apologize if this has been asked, but what makes Urshifu Single Strike less threatening in OU than in Nat Dex? Surprised it got banned there yet not in OU despite the higher power of nat dex.

    Posted this in the wrong section before, but anyone know what a Nat Dex RU would look like? I assume its unlikely

    Data Official Smogon University Usage Statistics Discussion Thread, mk.3

    ^^^^Yes. Myself and others feel confused as to how five new pokemon seem to have completely dismantled the usage statistics. Is there a greater problem? As much as we all appreciate everything that goes into this, it may be time to question whether or not more responsability needs to be...
