    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    I'd just like to take a moment and add to my previous thinking. Terastalization causes the use of multiple Pokemon just to check a singular threat that can have multiple variations (sound familiar? I.E. Kyurem in SSOU) and causes huge 50/50s as well as artificially increased RPS matchups. That...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    Here's the thing though, you could say the same of other broken mechanics like Gems in generation 5 before they were banned. Automatically nuke one thing in an already offensive and unstable meta based on complex changes for other broken mechanics like infinite weather. Obviously I'm not...

    It's an opinion piece not a college essay mister.

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    My own two cents: Tera is stupid and needs to be banned. There is nothing more than that, thank you. In all seriousness, I very strongly dislike the effect this generational gimmick has on the meta. I know Finchinator mentioned that his job is becoming more muddied and that lines of tiering are...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    Can I ask where this can be found? edit: Yes please for the love of arceus just get tera out of here so I can restore my sanity. There is literally 0 reason to keep this generational gimmick, it just makes everything more complicated / worse and every matchup is a game of fish. In general just...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    "Quick Draw and Quick Claw received a 52.3% and 58.1% majority in favor of taking action on Quick Draw and Quick Claw, where only 32.3% and 9.7% called for no action to be taken. Additionally, only 32.2% of both the casual and qualified playerbases had no opinion on the matter. Although QDQC...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    I haven't really been into this thread that much, but realistically, how likely is it that Terastalization is banned from tiering altogether this generation? We're in an extremely offensive metagame (and even then I think that's an understatement), and even if it isn't banned by the relative end...

    Metagame [SPOILERS] Generation 9 National Dex Discussion

    So, just a quick question for my sanity, is gen 9 NDOU gonna be separate from gen 8 NDOU? I feel as though the distinction of mechanics between the generations is more than large enough of a gap to consider making them two separate tiers. The current state of those lower ND tiers is still...

    Metagame [SPOILERS] Scarlet & Violet OU Discussion [BAN LIST POST 626]

    I just wanna also mention the fact that I think the way we tier is gonna really shift due to the new mechanics and way more offensive nature of this tier. Like, it isn't just that things break other things anymore, it's how fast they do it lmfao. We have no real defensive measures anymore...

    Metagame [SPOILERS] Scarlet & Violet OU Discussion [BAN LIST POST 626]

    I don't know whether this is the right place to talk about this or not, but is it just me or does it seem like 90% the future and ancient paradox pokemon are gonna be banned? Between proto and quark there is just too much going on. You can't really pin the issue on either electric terrain or sun...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    Definitely agreed, I've pointed this out in my previous posts as well (though I forget if it was in the suspect test or here) and it was the token point of my argument. The regenerator cores themselves have no real solution but to ban the ability or the pokemon posessing the abilitiy ultimately...

    Just wondering where we're at since voting was yesterday?

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    I agree with most of the sentiment people have on keeping the meta the same. To be frank, a lot of the arguments against stuff like Melm, Pex, Boots, item clauses, etc. has been a bunch of wordspew and is plainly wrong in the face of all the evidences we have. All due respect to those more...

    SS OU “om an all star” OMASTAR RAIN ft. dragapult

    Had a whole explanation written out for this but it didn't fit in the pokepaste notes box and I forgot not to copy the pokepaste before I pasted the work so oh well. https://pokepast.es/e25a9333207191c4 Basics of this improved Omastar Rain: 1. Use Barraskewda's offensive leverage to create...
