    Metagame SV Monotype Metagame Discussion

    Just wondering, when are the quickbans on king's rock, moody, damp rock etc. gonna be implemented? I just assumed the bans were live already but they're still perfectly usable in monotype rn.

    Metagame SV Monotype Metagame Discussion

    Even with my mono rock bias, I think everyone can agree that mono rock is the worst monotype by a long shot rn. I won't make this too long because it's genuinely painful to see how much mono rock got shit on this gen. Rock in gen 8 ran webs and trick room. They're rock's 2 methods of speed...

    King's rock is getting banned right? Maushold is essentially a living russian roulette. Since it was already banned in gen 8, I'm not sure why it's unbanned now when we have an even better king's rock abuser Also I'd just like to mention how painfully unusable mono rock is. Mono rock is more...

    I'm not procrastinating on this anymore, I just have to say it before gen 8 ends. Cradily (Rock) D -> UR :ss/cradily::ss/cradily: Art poorly drawn by me using ms paint I don't really feel like writing an intro for Cradily. It's pretty good in mono grass but complete trash in mono rock for...

    I'd definitely swap fighting and normal. Normal still isn't good but fighting is way way worse than it looks. There really isn't anything about mono fighting you haven't mentioned already, I just think it's flaws are way too drastic compared to it's tiny speck of a niche to ever be worth using.

    According to pikalytics, 60% of the very few talonflame users in monotype are running steel wing. An unresisted flare blitz or brave bird deals more than a super effective steel wing. What niche does steel wing have over something like roost or taunt, which have only 24% and 10% usage...

    SS LC Mono Rock hazard stack (yes this is lc)

    Note: This team was made specifically for other LC Monotype teams. Due to the abundance of Mienfoo, Pawniard and Grookey, it's kinda impossible to reliably use this team in regular LC. Here are the monotype LC resources if you're curious. Mono rock isn't nearly as bad in LC monotype and I love...

    I'm sick of people unironically using Cradily in mono rock thinking it's a good pokemon. Would you guys be interested in an overly detailed and angry rant about Cradily in mono rock and why no one should ever use it? Edit: I'm procrastinating on this a lot lol. Expect it to come out in 83...

    How does mono flying improve it's matchup against ground? Mantine seems like an obvious example, but that doesn't stop Nidoking and Mamoswine from wreaking havoc. I already run psychic and grass knot on Thundurus but since it's a scarf set, I doubt that will be enough.
