    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    This is something that kinda popped into my brain a few minutes ago, but I am curious to see thoughts on it? Not saying I am for or against it but it's not something I've seen discussed unless I'm blind and missed a bunch of posts... How about Pick Bans? On Team Preview, both players can choose...

    Wat. We reading the same threads? If by pro-tera you include the various restrictions people want, then sure, but that was what I was talking about as well. So I think we are on the same page!

    I kinda want to address all these posts I’m seeing that say something along the lines of “it’s too early!” or “give it a few more months!” I highly disagree with this notion and I think it’s doing nothing but further muddying an already muddy discussion. Ol’ Finchy was pretty clear in the OP...

    Ok, I see. But Im not convinced that matters. I can’t imagine that the playerbase using Link Codes is that large. Even if it was, its not an official Smogon related system…. So there is no onus on Smogon to particularly care about this. The priority of Smogon is on official Smogon tournaments...

    Smogon’s policies are to create what can be replicated on cart between two players who agree to follow smogon rulesets beforehand* If I jump into a WiFi battle against some random player than I cant reasonably assume they are going to follow smogon rulesets. We shouldnt be deciding policy based...

    I didn’t know those details about how on-cart WiFi battles worked but that seems pretty out of the purview of what Smogon is supposed to be. We can’t be making rules around formats that are not intended to be played following Smogon rulesets. Smogon rules are intended for people who explicitly...

    I find this comparison to be shallow. With Megas, you’re talking about one, maybe two Pokemon that have Megas that are comparable to Terastalizing, making it far, far easier to read. Plus it came with the cost of using up an item slot. With Terastalizing we’re talking about literally all 6 of...

    Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

    25 posts is barely anything and there are like literally thousands of threads you can make posts in to get that number, there’s even several subforums for off-topic discussion that don’t even revolve around Pokemon. The one thread you’re trying to post in is like the one out of tens of thousands...

    The term 50/50 in Pokemon isn’t really meant to mean something with actual literal 50/50 odds; its just a term for when the player has to make a guess between two options with equal odds of happening/being true. Pokemon naturally is a game where there will be lots of guessing and predictions...

    I doubt this would work in practice. If a UU or below pokemon got good with Terastalizing, it would then be used to the point it became OU, at which point it would then not be allowed to Terastalize, thus sending it back to UU or below…. At which point it would then be allowed to Terastalize...

    I am not really sold on the “Show Tera Types on Team Preview” idea because it sounds like a real band-aid solution at this point in time. I would prefer it to an outright ban right now, but I do think there are more effective and more interesting ideas that are worth exploring. The reasons to...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #1782 - RAGE FIST UPDATE ]

    It's already been a week since the game came out, and there are 100+ OU battles occurring at this very moment. There are plenty of players with enough time to innovate around the big threats; and banned things can always be retested later. Just because something can be played around or...
