  1. SS OU Vile-Darm Sun

    Hello! I've run the calcs and sadly there is a problem... Ok, from the top, if you want to keep Vileplume over Venusaur, you need a reason to use Vileplume. Moonblast and 10 SpA points is your reason. Venu still outdamages us by running Modest thanks to its much better speed so... But anyway, we...
  2. SS OU Rock 'N Roll Gen 8

    And this team needs a physical wallbreaker much more than it needs another pivot. Base 115 is low enough that it cannot replace Goon's use in the role, leaving the whole team walled to hell by special walls that resist/are immune to Secret Sword. I was using them as examples to show the...
  3. Tournament SPL XI: OU Discussion

    Adding to the point on Clefable, with Soft-Boiled freeing up its moveset it has reached into its immense movepool... When you face a Clef in battle be ready for any of the following that have all been used this SPL: Teleport Trick Knock Off Encore Calm Mind Wish Aromatherapy/Heal Bell Thunder...
  4. SS OU Rock 'N Roll Gen 8

    Firstly, I would disagree with the Incineroar change. They don't even perform the same role. Incineroar is a defensive pivot, Obstagoon is a wallbreaker. Their damage output is not even on the same planet. (Also Fake Out is kinda a weak move in singles since it's bad if your opponent switches...
  5. SS OU Shedinja Stall Team. This isn't going to end well.

    Right, let's make this team buzz. I think your primary issue is you're trying to build a stall team with hard hitters, which is something that rarely comes off, and generally needs a mon like Reuniclus to work well. So a more defensive mindset would do your team the world of good. Minor set...
  6. SS OU SS OU Stall?

    Ok, so right off the bat I have a few ideas. Clefable @ Leftovers Ability: Unaware EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpD / 4 Spe Calm Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Moonblast - Wish - Soft-Boiled/Protect - Aromatherapy A new set for Clefable, as this team is crying for a cleric and Unaware user. Thanks to the power...
  7. Project Counter That Pokemon!

    From the uncreative department: Toxapex @ Shed Shell Ability: Regenerator EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpD Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Scald - Recover - Haze - Toxic Spikes/Toxic +2 0 Atk Revenankh Shadow Claw vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Toxapex on a critical hit: 127-150 (41.9 - 49.5%) -- 85.9%...
  8. AG National Dex AG Viability Rankings

    Real quick: Agree with Yveltal to S. Every time I try and think of a switch-in for this thing I can't. I thought before that it was just because I'm stupid, but the more and more I think about it, the less wallable this monstrosity seems. Its inability to be checked offensively after a couple of...
  9. CAP 27 - Part 1 - Concept Submissions

    WIP Invincible Juggernaut/Passive Aggressive Description: A Pokemon that explores the potential of moves that boost Defense and Special Defense. Justification: This can be a Actualization or Archetype project, as it aims to study a class of Pokemon that has many members, but few successful...
  10. Pokémon Aegislash

    Yeah, Aegi losing Toxic was an important part of its nerf. Now it has it back... Oh and it gets Block so you can do this: Aegislash @ Leftovers Ability: Stance Change EVs: 236 HP / 252 Def / 20 SpD Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Block - Toxic - Substitute/Confide - King's Shield/Confide/Flash...
  11. Metagame Ubers Metagame and Set Discussion - Home Edition

    Ok, so here's what I was trying to get across, with no sidetracking, focusing entirely on Dynamax: 1. Pokemon like Gyarados, Hawlucha and Excadrill were all held up as textbook broken abusers of Dynamax before Home dropped, and yet they were mostly balanced. What has changed? Is it the new...
  12. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP3 - Pyroak

    Yeah, I think it just shows it isn't exactly going to be breaking stuff any time soon even under ideal circumstances. Anyone who disagrees with Dragon Dance, speak now or forever hold your peace.
  13. Metagame Ubers Metagame and Set Discussion - Home Edition

    This is Ubers. This is a problem because? Well, Nec-DM has an entire gen of experience behind it which tells us that Photon Geyser hits nothing it couldn't already. I have no idea what you're trying to say here, but it seems you're not happy with me using its standard sets for calcs. Please...
  14. Metagame Ubers Metagame and Set Discussion - Home Edition

    Message from Nat Dex AG, where we have Dynamaxed Xerneas with HP Fire, Yveltal Max Airstream spam, and similar cancer: Necrozma Dusk-Mane is your new god. Since most breakers are only capable of overwhelming it while Dynamaxed, the usual strategy is to Dynamax Nec-DM on the same turn as your...
  15. AG AG Metagame Discussion

    On a subject I thought of earlier... List of viable Z-move users Eternatus (Cannot Dynamax, so Z moves are its best bet for blowing past the sturdiest walls, and it has a truly Devastating Drake. However, it often prefers to outlast/slowly overwhelm opposing walls rather than blow through them.)...
