    that's a good post, no doubt, but it's about BO, I was looking for one for Balance ^^ Thanks anyway!

    Hey hey, I hope this is the correct thread for this question: I was wondering about how MANDATORY the traditional offense-roles are in modern Balance teams? Do you need a Wallbreaker, a setup Sweeper and a Revenge Killer/Scarfer on that archetype? And if not, do you need to make up for those in...

    For Stall: Pressure. Non-Stall is personal preference for the exact reasons you mentioned

    I'm trying my best, but that last comment made it hella hard... If it's too much, just shoot me a DM please, then I'll edit out some stuff, ok? And sorry already

    Most old stall staples have fallen out of favor, and the same is true for their megas. While you still see the occassional MSab, it doesn't really do much anymore, and is mostly there for the psychological factor of making people think twice before clicking hazards or status. I'm almost 100%...

    Outspeeding shouldn't be of your concern. CB Ttar is a Wallbreaker, it's supposed to take out, or heavily dent the defensive backbone of the enemy team, because there are no real switchins to it (except for some memes like Cartoon's defensive Keldeo). Bringing it in via slow Volt Switch/U-Turn...

    Makes sense, thanks for the insight! :) Was just wondering since in the QC subforum there was no explanation to it. Would you mind telling me the spread for it though if you got it off the top of your head?

    Is there a particular reason why the QC team stated Bulky Scarf Lando won't get an own set on the smogdex? Considering it's ranked as its second best set on the set viability rankings right now, and explicitly set apart from regular Scarf it seems kind of weird

    This is a rather specific question, but I hope someone might still be able to answer it: In P2's updated Ditto team that he used twice in SPL, does anyone know what EVs he uses for his MZor? It runs SD + Superpower, but from the damage it did with its moves, you can see it isn't max atk + ada...

    I didn't know where else to post this, since I don't think the team is RMT-ready, but if anyone could have a look at this balance team and tell me if it could work/what to add/remove/change please? http://pokepast.es/64de3867f47eb8b6 My apologies ahead if it's the wrong thread to post in :/

    Rather new to Ubers, so just a quick question: Is Stall still/again a thing with the resurgence of Gothitelle being able to take out so many defensive mons "for free"? And if yes, what are some of the most common things you see in ubers stall? I'd assume MSab, Chansey/Blissey, Zyg-C, DM...

    Resource SM OU ULTRA Cores

    Sorry if I overlooked something, but could anyone explain to me what the difference between the cores in sedertz ' OP and the "Ultra" cores in Ramses 's second post are? Is the first section "outdated" (from normal SM) and the second one recent from USUM?
