    Project USUM PU Victim of the Week [Week 29: Froslass (Submission Phase)]

    Raticate-Alola @ Choice Band Ability: Hustle EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe Adamant Nature - Sucker Punch - Knock Off - Pursuit - Return Functions similarly to Skunk as a check, but the difference is that Rat's power means you don't even have to predict to trap it: 252+ Atk Choice Band Hustle...

    The thing with Spit Up is that it's meant to consume Stockpile stacks on use- which isn't really broken. If it was fixed to work as it should then it wouldn't be an issue.

    Facade doesn't double in power when asleep unfortunately. Also I tried using Snore on ROM a while back and it didn't work, dunno if the coding was unfinished or just glitched.

    Metagame np: USUM PU Stage 4.5- Spikes [October shift post 50]

    For me not banning Kingler came down to its combination of underwhelming bulk and speed. While Kingler does lack many solid counters, I find checks are sufficient in dealing with it since it's likely only going to get 1 or 2 chances a game to come in a break stuff in the first place. Yes, mons...

    Even a completely uninvested in hp Ferrothorn (but like, who is gonna give the bot a team with that spread) upon taking a 58% drain punch would mean Buzzwole would recover around 40%. It's definitely not stacking as it should. Anyway here's a set: Tapu Lele @ drainingkiss Ability: Psychic...

    Yeah, but 58% of an hp invested Ferrothorn is 205hp, which works out at about 50% for a full hp Buzzwole which sits at 417hp, so it's definitely not working as it should.

    The stacking of draining moves doesn't seem to be working on ROM- at turn 20 here is a Buzzwole with Leech Life as its item Drain Punching a Ferrothorn for 58%, and only recovering 24% of its hp.

    Oh duh yeah thanks, was just using the calc set without thinking. Probably worth going with a non -attk nature then for the guaranteed kill on Chansey with explosion.

    I think Victreebel should rise but I'm not sure it should do so based on its Sun sets, particularly when Aurorus is such a prominent mon and brings trouble to the playstyle as a whole. Instead I think it should do so for this set: Victreebel @ Life Orb Ability: Chlorophyll EVs: 132 HP / 252...
