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

    Pretty sure a check is something that can switch in and deal with said threat. A counter would be something that walls the threat. This isn't a check just something that can revenge kill Urshifu.

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

    There's nothing wrong with using Exploud. It's a Pokemon that even if there's no Spectrier on the opponent's team it can still put a massive amount of work. It is easier to use Pokemon like this (looking at you Nidoking you bastard) because they are much easier to bring in this generation with...

    Announcement National Dex Suspect 8: Red Rabbits

    I guess I'll repost my thoughts from the OU discussion thread. Ngl this was a tough one but I'm going to go with BAN Despite there being a number of things that can eat multiple hits from Cinderace, it is a Pokemon that never dies because of Heavy Duty Boots and the insane momentum and...

    While I appreciate the long and thought out post some of your arguments are flawed and I'll explain why. Excadrill is not meant to always come in and Swords Dance and try to sweep. It fuctions not only as a sweeper but a revenge killer, electric immunity hazard control, speed control and more...

    I disagree. Excadrill has always had a way of adapting to all metagame changes and trends. Slide Quake deals with Zapdos, Moltres, Rotom. Rock Slide is a perfectly fine move to use over Rapin Spin because you can just have hazard control on something else. Latias, Tangrowth and Gliscor can...

    Hippowdon does not get a special defense boost in the sand. It's only Rock types that get it. Ninetales has also never been the premier sun setter since Torkoal got Drought. Torkoal can spin and gets Stealth Rock and Body Press to hit Tyranitar and Heatran while Ninetales can't really touch them.

    As someone who has used all Victini sets. Maybe B+ but A- is too big of a jump imo or atleast for the time being. My favorite set is Special Heavy Duty Boots as I feel it's the most consistent and I really like Blue Flare because it's no drawback, 20% chance to burn and it hits hard enough...

    Thanks I knew about some of those but while you can discuss this stuff in the OU discussiom thread it's hard to really get people on board since it will buried with new posts about a different topic. This is where a thread that focuses on the topic could come in. So it's more of a suggestion but...

    Why are there no threads that instead of focusing on one Pokemon it focuses on a whole archetype? It would be nice to see peoples ideas and sets to explore a certain archetype whether it's sand, rain, hail, sun, trick room, stall and HO. It be cool to discuss each one's weaknesses and strengths...

    Yeah pretty much anything in UU is usable in OU. A good portion of RU and even some Pokemon down in NU as well. I think Pokemon like Salamence are not ranked not because it isn't viable (it obviously is) but because the top OU Pokemon are just so good and consistent and easier to use in...

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

    Hey guys so I was looking trough Hydreigon's movepool and found out it gets Shock Wave. Forget Hyper Beam. Shock Wave is the best move to hit Tapu Fini. 60 BP may seem bad at first but when it's boosted by Life Orb and coming off Hydreigon's good Special Attack and when it hits for super...

    Not saying Spectrier isn't S but if the metagame is overly prepared for a Pokemon then it doesn't make sense to put them in S. Pokemon like Dracovish and Dugtrio were never S rank I believe and they still got banned. Dugtrio was prepared for because people were running Shed Shell and everyone...
