    CAP 31 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    Last-second post here to argue in favor of Poison Heal. In the back half of the thread there's been some major pushback, largely due to the strength of the ability and due to an argument that, like Defiant or Neutralizing Gas, it could reframe the project away from diamond storm. I heavily...

    In my opinion, neutralizing gas acts sort of like picking up rock stab for 31. Most obvious is the increased damage against landorus, but there's something subtler going on here, too; Think about the pokemon you would run a ground-type Diamond Storm user to take care of; Pyroak, the books...

    CAP 31 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    Miasmaw eats shit against Dragonite's dual wingbeat and Stratagem's meteor beam, can't hit Pyroak supereffectively, and doesn't exactly get to start setting up on Landorus-T like CAP31 would. With a very different typing and access to Diamond Storm, a NG 31 would be in an extremely different...

    CAP 31 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    I've given this some thought. It's been established already that the biggest challenge for 31 right now (and the reason edgequake has fallen off recently) is the ease with which hugely important pokemon like bro and corv can switch into both DS and EQ. Out of these, NG only improves the matchup...

    CAP 31 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    I have a few different thoughts to share while I've got a minute, both to do with general discussion and the present set of questions. I think we should feel free to pick a very strong ability here, because as it stands 31 doesn't have much of an identity or a reason to see use. The combination...

    CAP 31 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    Going to discuss some abilities I think could be interesting choices that have had little to no discussion so far. What abilities give CAP31 greater incentive to click Diamond Storm, and in what ways? Shield Dust operates a little bit like water veil, misty surge, or water immunity in that it...

    CAP 31 - Part 3 - Concept Assessment 2

    Does a Ground type CAP 31 have any roles or niches that are obvious? I mean, edgequake. We're a ground type that in theory beats flying types. CAP31 should be able to justify utilizing rock coverage where other popular ground types are, presently, not. What sort of direction should we be taking...

    How important is STAB given that we want to utilize Diamond Storm? Would certain roles appreciate STAB on it more than others? Going against the grain here, but I think *avoiding* STAB is important if we want to keep the possibility of a primarily defensive CAP31 open - the reason being diamond...

    How does Diancie use this move in this or past metas? What can we expand or differentiate from this usage? After considering both pyuking muku's list above and games I've played against both diancie and mega-diancie in the past, I'd argue that the primary utility Diamond Storm represents is...

    CAP 31 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    My personal favorite route for this concept is the "third stab," using one of the moves with extremely high base power on a Pokemon that does not share a type with it. I favor this route because it leaves the typing stage relatively open, and it invites a cool conversation about what three-type...

    CAP 31 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    How does the addition of such powerful moves to a movepool shape the process in its later stages? I'd argue it stands to put a significant limit on the impact we can make during move selection, just given the way building around a powerful move like this claims a spot on all sets the moment we...
