    OU Offensive Stealth Rock Kommo-o [QC: 3/3] [GP: 2/2]

    To p2's point, if this became mixed and Drain Punch replaced Focus Blast, 32 Attack EVs and a Hasty nature guarantees an OHKO on Ash-Greninja after rocks. It also has a 90% chance to 2HKO SpD Heatran after one round of rocks and leftovers recovery (45 - 53.3% ). If you're aiming for a more...

    OU Tapu Fini (revamp)

    Should the 12 SpA EVs be on the main EV spread if the reason for it (Scald) isn't the primary move option? Or should they just be mentioned in Set Details to run that if you pick Scald?

    The biggest things I've been seeing are a surge in Heatran, Tapu Bulu, Rotom-W, Celesteela, and Toxapex. Heatran runs rampant now that its best check is gone, and it's best partner Tapu Bulu has one less thing it has to check and can be more reliably switched into Ash-Gren and Lando-T. Rotom-W...

    OU Tapu Fini (revamp)

    As an idea, and since Adamant Zygarde is no longer something that Fini needs to worry about, is Max Speed still necessary? With 204 Speed (282 Speed stat), you outrun Adamant Lando-T and Timid Heatran, and with 216 Speed (286 Speed stat because of a jump point) you outrun max speed Hoopa-U and...

    I noticed a very interesting EV spread for Mega Charizard X on the December usage stats at ~30% usage, and was curious if anyone happened to know the specific reasons for it. The spread is 104 HP / 88 ATK / 36+ Def / 36 SpD / 244 Spe, Impish. This yields 323 HP / 318 Atk / 293 Def / 266 SpA /...

    OU Kommo-o

    Not QC so take this with a grain of salt. On the SpD set, what are the best options to consider over Stealth Rock? Being well paired with things like Clef, Chansey, MAggron, and Jirachi, your team might have rocks elsewhere that fits better or makes it easier to get them up (ie, Clef for...

    SM OU Steelix Anti-Breaker Stall (Peaked 1881 #84 on the ladder)

    I'm glad to see another person using Reuniclus on a semi-stall team, really. It has become my favorite "sweeper", or at least game-close as you put it. One thing that might be fun to try is Rocky Helmet on Reuniclus, since it gives it a way to damage at least some Darks while they attempt to...

    Really minor, but I think you mean Steelixite, not Steelium Z.

    SM OU Mega Sableye+Bulkarona Semi-Stall (FIRST RMT; Peaked at 1741, but has room to go far)

    I love this team! I saw your initial post about Sableye in the Creative Sets thread, and using it myself I've had some of the most fun battles in a while! That and Volc are terrifying, and Gliscor is such good Volc support. I don't have much as far as recommendations, but love what monster...

    Project USM OU Teambuilding Competition V2 - Round 19: Stakataka (Voting)

    I figure I might as well give this a go. I obviously started with Staka. After reviewing its checks and counters, so many of them were stopped by a decent Bulu that he was next up on the list as a fantastic partner. He deals with bulky Waters and Water/Grounds that Staka can't puncture...

    Core Analysis Workshop (Week 11: Mega Gallade + Tapu Lele)

    It actually IS affected by Psychic Terrain. For the Priority effect, it is based on the Target's grounded status, not the attack-user. Since Gallade and Lele are both grounded, they benefit from the priority immunity of the Terrain.

    Sceptile [QC 2/3] Written

    Mega Manectric can't be a partner, as Sceptile itself takes the Mega slot.

    One quick EV note. The current spread is slightly inefficient. It for SpD and Spe, it yields 233 SpD and 252 Spe. If the spread is changed to 244 HP / 56 Atk / 192 SpD / 16 Spe and Jolly Nature, the SpD and Spe come out to be 234 SpD and 253 Spe. Slightly more SpD and a bonus Speed point. Yay!
