  1. Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    I agree with Gary about Zeraora. I think it’s going to be like Buzzswole was in Sun/Moon. People will look at its stats and think it has a niche as a fast mixed attacker and it’ll start around B-. Then people will realize it’s not even that good at that and will slowly drop until it’s unranked...
  2. SPOILERS! Necrozma Dusk Mane/Dawn Wing [If it wasn't obvious spoilers]

    I rather have Flash Cannon over Signal Beam. You already have Moongeist Beam for Psychics and Signal Beam is neutral against the most common Dark type.
  3. SPOILERS! Necrozma Dusk Mane/Dawn Wing [If it wasn't obvious spoilers]

    If Ultra Necrozma got Draco Meteor then it would be a serious threat (still not S rank though). Without it Dragon Pulse doesn’t really OHKO anything. Uninvested Giratina-O has a high chance to live after Stealth Rock while an uninvested Draco Meteor OHKO’s it back.
  4. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    I think it’ll end up in PU with maybe a little use in NU. Nasty Plot gives it a niche but it doesn’t have the coverage or speed Naganadel does and it has to rely on Hidden Power to get by its checks.
  5. SPOILERS! Blacephalon

    Assault Vest does easily. Even Choice Band has a good chance of surviving.
  6. SPOILERS! Necrozma Dusk Mane/Dawn Wing [If it wasn't obvious spoilers]

    The Z-Move and Dusk Mane are definitely Ubers. I think Dawn Wings is worth testing in OU. You had things like Aegislash in OU at the start of Sun/Moon.
  7. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    The issue with that is you’re not killing anything else if you used Draco Meteor unless you were already at +2.
  8. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    Phermosa has way better speed which really put it over the top. There’s numerous things in OU faster than it and things like Mega Alakazam and scarf Latios can revenge kill it pretty well unless Naganadel itself is scarfed.
  9. SPOILERS! Stakataka

    I meant to point this out but forgot. +4 Jolly is still slower than +140 and up base Pokémon.
  10. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    Yeah it’s not getting banned from OU but with Weavile it’s a 50/50. If they switch out then it lives and you’re stuck in Ice Shard. If you expect the switch and click Pursuit but they stay in then you’re dead.
  11. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    I was thinking this thing was basically just a slightly stronger Salazzle but it's actually pretty good. It's defenses are bad but they aren't terrible and it has some decent resistances. A lot of walls can't do much back to it and those that can are either OHKO'd or heavily chunked.
  12. SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    They should have added 6 to every stat except special attack. It would give it the same 570 BST and prime number stats as all the other ultra beasts.
  13. SPOILERS! Zeraora

    Choice band might be interesting but Lando-T walls this thing hard without hp ice.
  14. SPOILERS! Stakataka

    If we’re comparing it to OU then 61/101 is pretty underwhelming for a wall, especially one without recovery.
  15. SPOILERS! Blacephalon

    This thing gets Psyshock to get by special walls. Hard to think of what can actually wall it besides Tyranitar.
