    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    I don't think it's really about Magnezone being OP, which I don't think anyone really believes, but more that Magnet Pull, just like Shadow Tag and Arena Trap, is an uncompetitive element. Every turn you have up to 9 options to choose from as a player (4 attacks, 5 switches depending on how...

    Adding onto the Slowbro discussion, I think it actually could rise for its role on Stall teams, in addition to the other characteristics mentioned above. I used it a lot myself on a M-Aggron team and with the right spread (I use 248 HP / 96 Def / 164 SpD Bold) it becomes a great glue mon. It...

    Noticed this while reading through the analysis. This should be 25% I believe.

    Zygarde: Do Not Ban

    Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - A Thousand Miles [Zygarde is now Banned]

    This part alone should be more than enough reason to justify why Zygarde shouldn't go imo. But I'll elaborate: - counterplay exists - it isn't some obscure 'mon or set you need with the sole purpose of handling Zygarde, so the whole "restrictive to building" part is debatable (at least not more...

    I don't want to be "that guy", but how does this qualify when Dragon Dance isn't a priority move? Great to see this thread get some love again btw. Imo one of the most fun project this site has to offer ^^

    I agree that M-Diancie isn't doing as great as last gen, but B- would really be underselling it imo. Its ability certainly isn't going to keep hazards off your field, but that's not what you use it for. Bouncing stuff like Glare, Wisp, Seeds and other status moves is actually pretty amazing for...

    Ultra Sun & Moon OU Analysis Discussion

    I was reading the Mawile OU Analysis and noticed it mentioned "threats" and partners like Expert Belt HP Ground Jirachi and Brave Bird Koko. The last one hasn't been popular for over a year and the first one has honestly never even been a thing imo. I don't know if it's that big of a concern...

    OU Tyranitar (Choice Scarf)

    Just noticed this line. It looks like you're trying to say that Sandstorm doubles the Sp.Def stat, while it actually only multiplies by 1,5. The extra 4 EVs make Ttar's Sp.Def go from 236 to 237, so even its multiplied defense only increases with 1.

    I can only speak from my own experience (and I don't consider myself an autority or anything), but when I started playing competitive 'mons like 7 years ago, I just played a lot of random battles and generally didn't know anything about teambuilding or any of that stuff. Watching replays helps...

    The OU ladder has gotten super inflated over the generation. Right now the top 10 players sit at or above 2100 ELO and the entire top 500 is above 1730, so 1650 for a silver achievement really isn't too much imo. The name "leaving low ladder" is maybe a bit misleading, but that's just what they...

    Also, could we get some justification for the Volcarona drop? Not saying I disagree, it's just that every other 'mon got a reasoning for rising/dropping, and seeiing how a lot of people feel strongly about its ranking... Regarding some of the nominations: M-latios is indeed pretty amazing...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for April 2018 (May @ #97) (June @ #150)

    Thanks. I was just wondering why we didn't have monthly changes if we just took the 3-month average every month, but if Antar's numbers are already averaged and they still fluctuate too much, I can kinda understand why that's not the case. Wouldn't an average over a longer period with monthly...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for April 2018 (May @ #97) (June @ #150)

    Quick question: These usage stats Antar posts every month, are they already averaged 1-3-20 over the last 3 months, of are they just the statistics for the previous month?

    Has enough time passed to unrank yet? It sits at a whopping 145th place in the usage stats (weighted 1695) and its best partners according to the stats would be either full stall (Sableye-M +49.501% | Chansey +47.736% | Shedinja +45.273% | Skarmory +37.903%) for which I'm very confident better...

    I pretty much agree with everything you said, but seeing how M-lati, Kyurem and Pinsir are all A- at the moment, a drop for Magnezone to the same rank as its greatest beneficiaries might still be justified.
