    CAP 30 - Part 9 - Stat Limits Discussion

    This isn't really a criticism of these two posts, but I do want to emphasize that with the SpD/Spe route, it should be assumed that CAP30b isn't going to be hitting very hard outside of boosted Body Press. For the other two routes that emphasize SpA, we should imagine some pretty hefty hits from...

    CAP 30 - Part 9 - Stat Limits Discussion

    I think CAP30b should be a special attacker. After reading this thread, I think this has been the best way to view CAP30b's stat spread variations: CAP30b's Defense should be decent enough to take advantage of Body Press, but beyond that, it should have a weakness in its SpA, Speed, or SpD...

    CAP 30 - Part 8 - Defining Moves

    Here's something I've been thinking about since Tinted Lens + Flying typing was chosen. I think Hurricane is a poor STAB choice of Flying-type STAB from a project perspective. Tinted Lens Flying-type STAB is incredibly potent: basically every Pokemon except for Magnezone gets hit neutrally...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I shouldn’t have quoted that section then, my mistake. My argument about recovery still stands outside of that though.

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I understand this concept completely. But my post doesn't talk about CAP30b's STABs...at all. So I'm not sure what the problem is here. To summarize that post: imo, CAP30i needs a Flying-type STAB to best take advantage of Tinted Lens The best Flying-type STAB we can give CAP30i is Brave Bird...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I don’t think you understand the point I made though. Using Brave Bird with having access to reliable recovery on a Pokemon with a Stealth Rock weakness won’t work. The Pokemon gets worn down too fast through rocks and recoil. Historically, Honchkrow, an offensive breaker that utilizes Brave...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I want to challenge a couple points made by this post. You are correct that Gyarados doesn’t get a reliable Flying-type STAB, and that being a Flying-type doesn’t necessarily mean we get a STAB move. However, to maximize its ability Tinted Lens, I would argue that CAP30i needs to have access...
