    Maybe it is because you didn't follow the clear instructions to not ask questions that have already been asked that your post was simply ignored?

    You are right but the thread title was never updated since the previous update. 2 months is ok late meta. Thanks for the work you do VR team.

    It would be great if this was updated again. It must be at least 4 months now.

    Kartana @ Life Orb Ability: Beast Boost EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Swords Dance - Leaf Blade - Sacred Sword - Knock Off Kartana can cause huge headaches for this core, enjoying the fact Lando T and Ferro are both opting for SP Def investment. Kartana can simply...

    Here is a team I built around 6 months ago. I have shared this team with a few people in the showdown OU room. (Forgive my lack of knowledge on how to show the sprites. I rarely post on the forums.) https://pokepast.es/5f9b402789ec2af7 I call it "Spike Stacking Volcarona Bulky Offense"...

    Why is Volcarona still A-? There were some strong arguments made for why it should never have dropped to A- and I believe they deserve a rebuttal. Volcarona's checks are very easy to wear down over the course of a battle and it also offers effective defensive utility which is why I believe it...

    This is a really good stall team! I used it a lot lately and I don't think I even lost a battle! One thing I was wondering about though is if you would consider replacing slowking for gastrodon? It gives an electric immunity and it can still beat heatran. It also eases the match up against...

    You really need to lurk more dude. You are polluting the thread with uninformed opinions. I support Slowking to drop to A+. It can be very difficult for archetypes using Slowking to deal with electrics, Pult, grass spam and dark spam and therefore forces these builds to be too linear for an S...

    You are better off running hurricane because it has more damage output over time once accuracy is taken into account. Average bp for hurricane = 110×0.7 = 0.77 Average bp for air slash = 75×0.95 = 0.7125

    Finchinator is the slowest VR updater there has been but at least he consistently gets it done and does a good job with it. I nominate Cinderace for S rank. Imo cinderace has been S rank for at least a couple of months now. It is not as good as it was before the new DLC though because it has...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 8 - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked

    Don't worry man. Urshifu will be getting the ban hammer for sure. There are no safe switch ins besides buzzwole (which is terrible), it has a solid speed tier and can threaten offense with stab sucker punch off 130 base attack. Bulk up variants can destroy counterplay to the banded variants...

    Hi there, I really like this team. Would you consider swapping out moltress for zapdos now that mosa is banned? Obviously zapdos doesn't deal with magearna but it does give the team a much needed flying resist.

    Unaware clefable is not really better at dealing with hydreigon because it can't switch into flash cannon if rocks are up. 252 SpA Life Orb Hydreigon Flash Cannon vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Clefable: 172-203 (43.6 - 51.5%) -- 62.9% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock and Leftovers recovery 252 SpA...

    Gastrodon does not hard wall life orb zeraora lol. If you are max special defense you are getting 2hko'd by close combat. The optimum spread for gastrodon to take on life orb zeraora is 252hp, 44def, 212 sp def with a calm nature. Running this spread you take equal damage from both cc and...

    I have no idea why you are comparing z moves to crits and hax. Banning crits and hax is a modification to the way moves work. Banning z moves is simply a rule that states you can not use specific items, which has been done before (soul dew). By the way I am not advocating the banning of z...

    Why ban all megas when you can ban them individually if they are a problem? Mega Pokemon are simply Pokemon you need to use your item slot on to activate. Z moves on the other hand are more similar to dynamax. Unlike mega stones (and similarly to dynamax) any Pokemon can use a z move at any...

    On The Radar Vol. 2 [See Post #336]

    To keep this issue simple moving forward I believe all trapping abilities and moves should be banned. Trapping as a whole is uncompetitive. Arguing how much of this cancer we should be willing to allow is pointless when we can just get rid of it in its entirety and introduce a no trapping clause.
