  1. Challenge Pokemon with Status Moves ONLY (Latest Game: Pokemon Black)

    I love your stories ! I've read a couple of absurd Pokémon playthrough but yours definitely take the cake. For Emerald, you can probably save a few PP by attempting to flee against a faster wild Pokémon. While the odds of escaping become greater after several attempts, they eventually roll back...
  2. Metagame Inheritance

    There has been little activity since the end of the OMotM ladder, so I thought I could share two sets I had fun with. Keep in mind I did not play this meta extremely seriously so they're probably far from the best, mostly just funny to play with.
  3. Metagame Shared Power [Leader's Choice]

    I have a question regarding the concerning the consistency of some abilities. If Trace (once technical difficulties are solved out) only copies the natural ability of the active pokemon, shouldn't Mold Breaker and Neutralizing Gas also negate only one ability at a time ? This would make these...
  4. Metagame Shared Power [Leader's Choice]

    I may not have played as many SP games as some of you, but I think that dismissing a valid concern by calling it a fallacy is a poor way of handling things. I actually think that Fur Coat and co, while certainly quite centralizing, are actually a good thing for the meta, as they require HO...
  5. Metagame Pacifistmons

    Assault Vest : it's really stupid. It puts the other player at an immediate disadvantage because they have to immediately go to Swoobat/Accelgor (and risk a Toxic on the switch) or risk losing one mon to it. Other countermeasures include faster Sub and Weezing, but Swoobat has 114 base speed and...
  6. Metagame Pacifistmons

    I'm really excited about this meta being LCotM ! Many mons regained Magic Coat thanks to Home... including everyone's favourite cancer : Gothitelle @ Choice Scarf / Leftovers Ability: Shadow Tag EVs: 252 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 1 HP / 0 Atk - Magic Coat - Heal Bell - Toxic - Trick /...
  7. Metagame Fortemons

    I think we should actually try to play this meta before talking about bans... Anyway Inferno has substantially better distribution than Nuzzle (it's hard to be actually worse than "all your users are in PU and most of them are not even ranked there"), with at least three decent users in...
  8. Metagame Fortemons

    The op does say that moves retain their regular types, but I guess the typing-changing thing is part of Weather Ball primary effect so you're probably right. However, it actually makes Victreebell much better because it has pseudo Fire STAB from Sunny Day, and I'm not sure wether Weather Ball...
  9. Metagame Fortemons

    The problem with Vanilluxe is that it is neither fast nor bulky and will probably be walked over by everything and anything in this meta which will probably be oriented towards offense. I would use this instead : Victreebel @ Weather Ball Ability: Chlorophyll EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe...
  10. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Accelgor can escape Goth with BPass, even if Webs are up. But anyway since Sandstorm isn't great anyway, running Snore (so that Tailwind is not a problem) is ok. Magic Coat Espeon is better for handling Hawlucha. The only inconvenient compared to Snore is that you cannot switch on Moldy Taunt...
  11. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Just a question : why do you run Snore on Espeon ? isn't it strictly inferior to Magic Coat (bar Skill Swap but it's rare)? I've never been a fan of Snore. It's actually abusable because it means you can be trapped and Taunted something for many turns, without the possibility of Struggling. I...
  12. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Nice team ! A few remarks : - Your team doesn't really need Tailwind support (apart from Wak), you could use Baton Pass on Hawlucha instead. It is a very good BPasser for abusing MAbsol's Perish Song. - Gulpin is... meh. It's very safe but it's really a sitting duck and its passivity can be...
  13. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Don't underestimate the pityfulness of base 5 Def. To give you an idea, it reaches a friggin' 13 Def at level 100... Happiny is actually frailer than Abra : 0- Atk Poliwag Struggle vs. 0 HP / 0- Def Happiny: 336-396 (108.3 - 127.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO 0- Atk Poliwag Struggle vs. 0 HP / 0-...
  14. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Just theorimoning as I have never used nor seen any of them : - Electrode has a blazing fast Taunt (as well as Sub). It also gets Magic Coat for whatever reason (and Telekinesis and Teleport, it's really weird). I guess Thunder Wave from 150 base speed is also nice, and Electrode is immune to...
  15. Metagame Suicide Cup

    Actually there is a very efficient way around Goth : Skill Swap. Until now, I thought it was only a gimmicky strategy on Espeon and MDiancie to get rocks on your side of the field, but stuff like Skill Swap Abra can destroy Goth if used correctly, especially if you have you own scarfed Goth (and...
