    Z-Move Discussion

    I thought of something while messing around with a Hail team: Offensive Z-Moves are about hitting something as hard as you can. Kyurem-B is about hitting something as hard as it can. So why not have your ice cream and your cake? Kyurem-Black @ Icium Z Ability: Teravolt EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD /...

    Pokémon Serperior

    Glare and not costing a Mega slot are going to be the key factors that keep Serperior relevant in OU over M-Sceptile even with Contrary. It's easy point to Talonflame as a check but, if Serperior forces a switch (like M-Slowbro & Keldeo for starters), nothing but Zapdos wants to come in on a...

    Other Aegislash Post-Ban Discussion Thread

    Here's a Pokemon that gained a fair amount of utility from Aegislash's removal. Cofagrigus Pokedex Number - 563 Type(s) - Ghost Base Stats - 58 HP / 50 Atk / 145 Def / 95 SAtk / 105 SDef / 30 Spe General Analysis of Pokemon/Current Roles in OU - While Cofagrigus was rarely hinder by...

    Bug Reports v2.0 (READ OP BEFORE POSTING!!)

    It seems that all of Ferrothorn's Egg Moves are blocked when using its Hidden Ability Anticipation. I've tried all of them.

    np: XY OU Suspect Testing Round 5 - Ghost of Perdition

    Well in the 6+ hours this thread's been up, I feel like the majority of what I would say about Aegislash has been said multiple times. In summary: it's far too bulky for how great its typing is, King's Shield is a mess of 50/50 predictions that can completely shut-down counters and is far too...

    Pokémon Sableye

    So Mega Sableye could be a nasty answer to both stall and hyper offense's setups. Chansey and Deoxys-S/D can't touch Mega Sableye. SR leads like Garchomp, Terrakion, and Landorus-T will not appreciate a Prankster burn upon or before Mega Evolution. Skarmory and Ferrothorn lose horribly. Of...

    Other The effectiveness of Baton Pass teams after the nerf

    For the record, the opponent made pretty much every correct play in that replay. If the Deoxys-S wasn't Dual Screens that Knock Off Azumarill demolishes it, the Defog to remove screens was important since he wasn't stopping anything with both screens up, and switching Talonflame out of Smeargle...

    Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    DIANCIE! So Mega Diancie's ability is a mystery but oh lord do I want it to be Levitate or Solid Rock. Either way, Diancie could lead the charge for more Gen 6 Mega Pokemon. Also Prehistoric Devolution. Interesting concept and I hope we see more of it. Genesect seems like a perfect candidate...

    Other XY OU Viability Ranking Thread (V2) (Last update on post #5189)

    I've been meaning to get around to this for a while but seeming some negative talk about it here over the past week motivated me. I've been using Specially Defensive Empoleon on a hazard-stacking balance team for over a month now and I don't see the flaws of a D Rank or even C- Rank Pokemon in...

    Zoroark [QC 3/3] [GP 1/2] [QC Rejection 2/3]

    As I've said in the past, I don't mind an analysis being rejected, especially one this old; I see it as a good writing exercise regardless of if it gets uploaded. But as for the GP edits, thank you as always and I've implemented them into the OP.

    Sticky Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire

    Anything they add into these new games can be patched into XY and ORAS can just block trading with XY games that are not a certain version number. Very, very easy to pull off for a first-party developer. The only reason we didn't have patches in previous gens is that it wasn't possible to do...

    Pokémon Noivern

    So I've been laddering in the 1700~2000 point range for a while with an offensive team that uses Choice Scarf Noivern as its revenge-killer, Mega Charizard X check, and Baton Pass team stop. Noivern (M) @ Choice Scarf Ability: Infiltrator EVs: 4 Def / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd Modest Nature IVs: 0 Atk...

    Pokémon Hoopa

    Well considering the standard Ghost- or Psychic-type move-pool I can think of a decent set. Hoopa @ Lefties EVs 252 Sp.Atk, 252 Spe Modest / Timid Shadow Ball Psyshock Substitute Focus Blast / Will-O-Wisp With Ghost + Psychic only resisted by Dark-types, I feel that a Substitute + 3 Attacks...

    Baton Pass - its role in the metagame and possible solutions to nerf full Baton Pass chains

    Is Baton Pass (with specific reference to full Baton Pass teams) a problem for the development of the metagame? Full Baton Pass teams are not the biggest thing hindering the metagame but they are certainly unhealthy now that they are common enough to warrant the use of dedicated checks and...

    Super Smash Bros 4 (Spoilers ITT)

    Popping in to point out Greninja is just a combination of moves from previous fighters. Water Shuriken & Aura Sphere are both chargeable projectiles Substitute and Double Team look entirely identical (user vanishes then sweeps from one side) Aqua Jet recovery seems to behave identically to...

    Zoroark [QC 3/3] [GP 1/2] [QC Rejection 2/3]

    I've been updating the OP with all your changes. Not to drag on this thread any longer but I've been playing around with an option over Low Kick and I want QC's thoughts on: Counter. I'll preface this with I know running Counter on a sweeper in this day and age is heresy but I think it's...

    Pokémon Manectric

    Well since we're here again, I definitely have a clearer outlook on how Raikou and Mega-mane differ as I've been laddering with Raikou for nearing a month now after doing about the same with Mega Mane before the Mega Lucario ban. Mega Mane has the benefit of a stronger Psuedo-BoltBeam should...
