  1. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 11 - Break The Ice

    To me, the pro-ban side has so far failed to really provide any reason why Kyurem is so much better and unhealthier than other wallbreakers in the tier. Kyurem is definitely one of the best wallbreakers but so are Melmetal, Dragapult or even Kartana. It doesn't seem much more centralizing or...

    Does anyone have a good hazard stack offense with Eleki and Gapdos? Thanks

    Please stop with Swampert. This thing is one of the worst mons in the tier. If anything it should be dropped even further. The thing is, if your team really does desperately need both a rocker and Tran check it's probably garbage. Swampert reminds me a lot of Toad when Vish was around. Complete...

    Really agree with most changes, but I don't understand why Gyarados to UR. Sure, it can only really be used on HO but there it always felt like it has better snowball potential and better typing than its main competition dragonite.

    That's really not the reason why Swampert isn't good because his role never was that of a wallbreaker. Its main issue is that while in theory he is a pivot with solid typing, defenses and the ability to set up rocks everything kind of falls apart in practice. He isn't that bulky so he can't be...

    You also have the legendary Block Toxapex that removes many stall staples as well as some balance ones.

    This right here is typical Smogon. When people complain about a move (Teleport, pivoting moves), item (HDB) or some defensive pivots played mostly on balance (Slowtwins) we don't address anything because it is too complex. So what do we do? We ban the best offensive pokemon in the tier to make...

    I think that the argument that Leftovers are somehow more broken than Boots is completely redundant. Sure, in gen 2 they porabaly were suffocating and made the entire metagame too bulky, but gradually many better items were released making leftovers less of a necessity each generation. On the...
  9. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 10 - Royals

    Here in this thread we can clearly see the difference between people that actually play the tier and people who continue to theory mon and bring up its INSANE stats over and over again. There are some valid points as to why Zama may be too much for the tier, but for the most part everyone that...

    Arctozolt is pretty much dracozolt under hail with potential aurora veil but a much worse and inconsistent team structure around it.

    Is the Healing wish Latias HO still viable? If so can someone help me build a solid team with it (which HO it fits best into, which pokemon appreciate HW etc.)

    I've tried Salamence and it's great until you realize that is suffers from a severe 4MSS and most importantly that every DD set is completely outclassed by both Dragonite and Gyarados while every pivot/defog set is outclassed by other Flying types with defog which there are tons of. Special sets...

    Is Sub-Swarm Volcarona still usable and what are some solid partners for it for offence?

    Hello, I would like to bring back the point of Zamazenta-C as I believe its potential introduction to the tier would be extremely welcome one. While many people got scared to death when they looked up its stats which are of course great they do not see many flaws and issues it has that would...
