    Monotype Role Compendium

    Looks good, nice job! I have a few (minor) suggestions: Add Nidoking under suicide leads (it is faster than Nidoqueen and if used as a suicide lead it often runs sash so the lowered bulk doesn't really matter) Add Mega-Venusaur and Golbat under phazers (Roar/Whirlwind) Add Crobat under Defensive...

    Ladder ORAS Monotype Discussion

    I've been seeing a lot of posts stating either one of the following 2 arguments and I really want to get of my chest how much they irk me: Dark/Ghost will take a heavy hit from losing Mega-Sableye: Stating that either one of these two types will suffer from the loss of Mega-Sableye does nothing...

    I wouldn't really consider Toxic Spikes to be an 'answer' to Mega-Sableye. I can see your point as a Ghost user. Yes, they aren't too hard to setup vs Ghost, but if Sableye comes in with only one layer down, it'll merely get regular poison, which softens it up, but doesn't really qualify as an...

    Ladder ORAS Monotype Discussion

    Regarding the Mega-Sableye discussion I've found that the following 3 types have a very hard time dealing with it and often have to rely using rather gimmicky sets that can only check it rather than counter it, or have to rely on the opponent not keeping Mega-Sableye healthy enough. Note that...

    Thanks for posting these stats, Scpinion. I can already see some interesting things. Water and Normal have a relatively high usage, in contrast to what the Weighted Stats on the site may make you believe while Ground seems to really have fallen in usage after the Smooth Rock ban (or wasn't it...

    Ladder ORAS Monotype Discussion

    A good place to start may be to disqualify voters who have gotten their COIL reqs utilizing whatever is suspected at that moment (in this case Mega-Altaria). This essentially gets rid of all the voters that like to spam whatever is suspected and want to be able to do that in the future. Some...

    Ladder ORAS Monotype Discussion

    Saying Bug does not need a nerf because the top types in the meta can deal with it should not be the focus. The top types were also able to deal with Mega-Metagross, but it got banned mainly because lower tiered types (mostly Ice, Fairy and Rock) got stomped by it. If you want to convince that...

    Good job for setting up the council! I hope this will make things go alot more smoothly. For now I want to talk about Gravity Landorus and Sand Rush Excadrill, as I think it's completely broken. How does it work: Landorus uses the many switches it's able to cause because of it's powerful moves...

    I'm gonna agree with you on Infernape not moving to S rank. As you said it isn't really Metagame defining. On Rotom-Heat however I don't really understand why you think it shouldn't be A rank. A Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that have S rank qualities, but need support (which can be easily given)...

    Nominating Rotom-Heat from B to A rank on Fire. It has an amazingly useful ability in Levitate. Its electric typing gives it the ability to cover Charizard-Y's electric weakness without stacking any other weaknesses (except gravity I guess). Furthermore it has a viable dual screens set (which is...

    Ladder Monotype [Read post #393 for Tiering Updates]

    OmniaX, do you imply a ban of both Gravity and Smooth Rock or a clause that doesn't allow you to use them both on one team?
