    More noms! :regieleki: : B -> C+ The honeymoon with this one is pretty much done. Everyone kind of just knows how it operates and can just switch around to their local Lando-T and completely nullify it. If your primary goal fast screens I would just use Grimmsnarl. If your concern is getting...

    :cinderace: The bunny is incredibly unhealthy at the moment, but not absolutely broken. The real factor that everyone agrees on being a problem is its synergy with The Boots. Getting omni-STAB on U-Turn is already pretty silly, especially with its high attack, but being able to ignore the...

    :hatterene: : B- -> C this thing sucks :(. In any reasonable metagame where Magearna is legal there is practically 0 reason to use this thing. Beyond that Magic Bounce is great but not so great that it requires this thing to automatically be used. In fact I feel like Xatu is probably a better...

    There is a way we can suspect two things at once and not have it feel like a crapshoot. We suspect both forms of Urshifu, of course! :urshifu-rapid-strike: :urshifu: In practice of course Urshifu-Rapid isn't nearly as plainly broken as Urshifu-Single. But the problems raised by it can be even...

    Hey you! Yeah you, SweatySmogonGamer69. Are you tired out of your mind stacking Rocky Helmet onto things to punish Urshifu? What if I told you that Urshifu is about to make that strategy obsolete, and you can go back to using regular items? Urshifu @ Protective Pads Ability: Unseen Fist...

    Oh great, a Toxapex discussion. This only ever ends with civil arguments and fluffy clouds. Meanwhile, Ferrothorn sets up yet another layer of hazards, invalidates a good half of the current roster, and pairs really really nicely with Pex. And has been doing this, consistently, for 3...

    :hatterene: B- -> C, C-, or UR; I'm not picky. I already wrote about it so I'll link it here: Please do not use Hatterene in OU. :excadrill: A+ -> S Excadrill has been quietly one of the best Pokemon in the game for some time now. It's an incredible counter/check to every Pokemon in the S...

    Avid Hatterene enthusiast here; Don't use Hat in OU anymore. TR is not good in the metagame at the moment, and her being the best TR setter is hardly praise when the archetype is often dead on arrival. Hat's bulk is good but her awful HP stat is holding her back significantly. She can take 1...

    1. The only Pokemon in that list I feel like aren't going to stay in OU are :magearna: and :scizor:. Scizor because there aren't a lot of things it necessarily beats anymore (and it's margin of surviving was more or less a miracle), and Magearna because ban plz. 2. A lot of the victims were...

    Complaining about Regenerator distribution? Be thankful Torn-T isn't in this meta. Yet.

    I don't particularly think the prevalence of Hazards a problem right now. Pivoting, however, I 100% agree with you on. WishPort is the easiest, most free way of getting problematic Pokemon on the field rn. With Clefable's bulk and completely free points of entry thanks to Magic Guard, you have...

    Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

    Question: Has there ever been a time when all Pokemon from a banlist were reintroduced into the tier they were banned from? For example, all of UUBL being allowed into UU after the meta had developed beyond the time the Pokemon were banned. Would that even be feasible?

    With the recent Crowned Tundra leak, will there be a discussion thread for the potential impact of the re-released additions?

    If we're talking competitive impact across all generations, Klefki for banning a whole move. If we're talking current time, Grimmsnarl gets a pass for being good beyond pure support.

    :haxorus: Looking at UUBL is interesting, because a lot of these guys are viable in OU to a degree, unlike previous generations. Haxorus is the banlist's newest addition, and perhaps the most overlooked. Its understandable; Haxorus hates Clefable, Clefable is on every team. But Haxorus is more...

    :conkeldurr: I predict Conk is going to stay pretty relevant in the coming meta. Conk's movepool is filled with colorful coverage, and all of said coverage combines extremely well with Conk's other ability; Sheer Force. The power drop is notable, but not significant enough to warrant concern...

    A moment of silence, for all the Pokemon in the pre-DLC OU metagame that are simply not good in OU anymore due to this massive metagame shift. :tyranitar: Today we say goodbye to a legend. Tyranitar's day has come and gone, and the record spanning, absolutely dominant OU streak is broken...

    So I actually started laddering!

But important to note would be turn 5, where I get Perish...
