  1. Gen 1 RBY Viability Ranking Thread

    Following that logic, the main issues are missing: 2HKO Vs. Chansey (usually) the 3HKO Vs. Dragonite (usually) the 2HKO Vs. Persian (usually) the 3HKO Vs. Snorlax Potential 2HKO Vs. Victreebel The underlined two are the most significant because of how omnipresent they are. The match-up with...
  2. Gen 1 RBY Viability Ranking Thread

    Victreebel's sweeper set is listed above the ParaWrap set; and I figured it was more important to compare the SD set since it's the only one listed for Venu. Why are you not switching on the bolded match-ups for either Venusaur or Victreebel? All of them know super-effective moves that will...
  3. Gen 1 RBY Viability Ranking Thread

    So I'm making a competitive team for the 3DS RBY re-release and while building the team, I decided I wanted to use Venusaur because it's one of my favorite Pokemon. But upon some further research, I've come to a bit of an unfortunate conclusion. In Gen 1, Victreebel is an immediate and...
  4. ORAS OU Tauros's OU rampage!

    While I don't have any experience with Tauros, I will point out that you are currently not using a Mega and there are 40+ options to choose from. I also recommend that you have the OP updated with your current build so that you can get better feedback. Imho, I've used Venu/Exca/Rotom/Talon on...
  5. Resource ORAS OU Simple Questions, Simple Answers (Read the OP First!)

    Does Latios lose any meaningful match-ups in OU by having a DEF IV of 20-22? I'm SRing for Latios in Omega Ruby atm, and I got one with 31/31/20-22/31/31/31 I might keep it but I'm unsure if 9 to 11 points in defense is going to result in Latios losing any meaningful match-ups. Please VM...
  6. Pokémon Latios

    Does Latios lose any meaningful match-ups in OU by having a DEF IV of 20-22? I'm SRing for Timid Latios in Omega Ruby atm, and I got one with 31/31/20-22/31/31/31 I might keep it but I'm unsure if 9 to 11 points in defense is going to result in Latios losing any meaningful match-ups. Please...
  7. OU Kingdra

    True, but it means the whole Agility issue is resolved by Team Support (I figured giving it an explicit mention might help).
  8. OU Kingdra

    What if Modest CritDra had Speed Boost support from a Passer like Scrolipede or Ninjask? That would patch up the Speed problem and allow you to run whatever Hidden Power you wanted.
  9. OU Kingdra

    Is there any merit to using Timid on either set? I've gotten several Timid Horseas in-game and was curious if it was worth waiting to get a Modest one, but there appears to be no mention of the usual speed vs. power debate that a decent number of pokemon have.

    Offensive ######## name: Offensive move 1: Blizzard move 2: Giga Drain / Wood Hammer move 3: Earthquake move 4: Ice Shard ability: Soundproof / Snow Warning item: Abomasite evs: 200 HP / 56 Atk / 252 SpA nature: Queit <- Typo. Should be "Quiet" ivs: 0 Spe
  11. SwagPlay, evaluating potential bans (basic definition of "uncompetitive" in OP)

    If the OHKO moves and Evasion-raising moves can be banned for being a pain in the ass to play against (and thus ruining a person's mood), I think adding Swagger to that list is not a big deal. Ban Swagger.
  12. SwagPlay, evaluating potential bans (basic definition of "uncompetitive" in OP)

    I think this discussion needs to be held off for a little while. I think the ingenuity of Smogon will find a solution to the SwagPlay strategy in team-building: if it does, then the issue has been solved. If it cannot, then this discussion needs to be held again. I think this is comparable...
  13. OU Rotom-W

    I am unsure what the policy on PokeBank discussion is but Pain Split is now legal on Rotom-W in Japan, Europe, and the US.
  14. Starmie (Analysis)

    [Checks and Counters] <p>There are a whole host of specially defensive Normal-types who can make Starmie's spikes fall off in frustration. Chief among these is its old nemesis Blissey, who can take everything outside of Psyshock and Trick, and can cripple with Thunder Wave or Toxic and proceed...
  15. np: OU Suspect Testing Round 5 - Sandstorm (Excadrill/Thundurus Banned)

    This is the best reason I've heard yet, actually. I'm only considering this for OU (the offending tier) but I will admit I have no idea how this would work in the Middle Tiers where it would be the most complicated imo. I will admit that I have no clue how this would work on the larger scale, I...
