  1. Resource SS Monotype Viability Rankings [Isle of Armor]

    About time. Aegislash (Steel): A -> S(?) Kicking things off with Steel. Was initially going to attempt to argue for Lucario's inclusion in B given the performance of Specs and NP variants as special cleaner/wallbreaker and mirror wincon, though think it fits perfectly alongside Bisharp as flex...
  2. Sun & Moon OU Reservation Index (READ THE OP)

    Would like to reserve Hydreigon (wrote the original Gen 5 analysis) or Volcanion if either becomes available.
  3. Sun/Moon Good Cores Discussion Thread

    [Tapu Lele + obscenely frail fast attacker] seems to be the default HO core going into the new meta; so much to the point that we've decided to slash any combo involving Tapu Lele into the offensive category rather than the terrain category. We've seen LeleZam, LeleMosa, might as well throw...
  4. Sun/Moon Good Cores Discussion Thread

    Really think the above core highlights the importance of Alakazam in the new meta. Since its return to standard play, Zam (more specifically, Mega Zam) has only had three natural predators: priority, faster attackers (none unscarfed), and an inability to take unresisted hits. The introduction of...
  5. Sun/Moon Good Cores Discussion Thread

    Gen 7 has introduced a wealth of mons sure to make their presence felt in standard play this time around. While there are certainly a wealth of mind-boggling statspreads and abiltiies for trainers to fool around with, Pokemon has always been a game of team of combos, a sentiment which has been...
  6. Xurkitree Discussion

    Surprised no one has named Keldeo as a key partner to this thing on offense. Effortlessly cleans up everything above bar Dugtrio and has the added utility of beating out Chansey/Blissey, which beats non-Tail Glow sets one on one. In return, Xurkitree beats out Tornadus-T, M-Pinsir, every...
  7. Resource ORAS OU Metagame Discussion

    A very interesting partner came to mind as I was reading the current discussion. Rotom-H @ Choice Scarf (Timid) 4 HP/252 SpA/252 SpE Will-O-Wisp Thunderbolt Overheat Volt Switch Same offensive synergy as Heatran + Ground immunity and more consistent Tbolt instead of a Solarbeam which will lose...
  8. Haxorus (Analysis)

    I have no idea what you're talking about. The DD set is in plain sight, after both Choice sets. Also, Choice Scarf Haxorus isn't mentioned in the Band set, or vice versa at all. I daresay you need some glasses.

    Just wanted to say that I'm willing to hand over rights to the Deoxys-D analysis if you'd like to write it. I've read a lot of your work and I really think you could do better than I have.
  10. 5th Gen OU Analysis Index - 89 BW2 Revamps On Site!

    Haxorus has been written up and I'm waiting for GP checks. Link is in the signature, along with my other unfinished projects.
  11. Haxorus (Analysis)

    I think my massive changes warrant a bamp, no?

    Just finished my exams and I'm finishing it up today. Thanks anyways. Also, if you have any suggestions, I'd be glad to hear them.

    Hmm. In regards to the Haxorus/Ononokusu analysis. Do you think the Choice Band/Choice Scarf sets should be merged or seperate?
  14. Haxorus (Analysis)

    I myself preferred them split since there's so much to write about in one merged set, but so many people wanted it merged, as you can see in the thread. I'll wait on SDS to get me a final opinion.
  15. Deoxys-D (Analysis) [QC 0/3]

    Bumping b/c of huge edits and I've just returned from vacation. Thanks.
  16. The Black Company (4th Generation OU, 4th place on TeamUber with 1680 CRE)

    (Rate at request) Hai guy, Very solid team you've got here, it actually looks a lot like one of my old ones: (http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=78114). My first nitpick was the positions of Infernape and Skarmory (Aerrow ninja'd me). Personally, I think you should lead with Lum...
  17. Team Rankushin

    You sure? There's no such thing as "momentum" when weather sweepers with 600+ Speed are OHKOing everything on your team. I'm saying someone that can take multiple hits could help out, is all.
  18. Team Rankushin

    I apologize. Time for a proper rate: Your team has no dedicated wall, and is relatively frail in general. A huge threat to this team seems to be Voltolos, who with Mischievous Heart and STAB Thunderbolt really does a number on your team. I'm not entirely sure what the purpose of your team is...
  19. Moody

    Inconsistent meets marteau de ban le Smogon. If I was any good at French, that would translate to "The Banhammer of Smogon". Alas, I've failed French class so many times.
  20. Dream World Classic Hyper offence!!

    Hyper Offense isn't a good playstyle this generation with Mischievous Heart and weather flying everywhere. Besides, this is considered a Sand team, just because you have Tyranitar and Doryuuzu, even if you don't want it to be. The descriptions need to be fixed. You want people to understand why...
