  1. Metagame Shared Power [OM of the Month]

    I agree. I'm glad Unburden was banned before people start using this fish with Booster Energy + Quark Drive, Sheer Force Adaptability and Mega Launcher. In this case, what Chi-Yu couldn't kill, Iron Valiant deleted.
  2. Metagame Full Potential [Leader's Choice]

    It does have a lot of potential, but I like max HP instead of Speed. She can survive all the boomburst spam and also Espathra's Stored Power easily. Gigaton Hammer is really impressive, it dealt 50% against full def Ting-Lu. IMO, she is a better user of AV than Scream Tail. Speaking of...

    About Wind Rider, Brambleghast ability... Since Sandstorm is classified as Wind move now, shouldn't the Bramble be immune to Sandstorm damage? And also, instead of suffering damage from it, shouldn't it activate it's ability? Or is Sandstorm itself a Wind Move, while it's effects aren't?
  4. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    Actually, some arguments here made feel that the "Terastal Clause" is actually viable. I mean, it's not an item like Mega Stone or Z-Crystal, but it is something that can be coded, right? Whats the difference between "Lucario with Lucarionite is OP for this tier" and "Roaring Moon with...
  5. Metagame Shared Power [OM of the Month]

    I would say that, but i saw many Poison Heal based teams using Shell Armor (Torkal, Dreadnow, even Cloyster) to completly deny crits. The few games I played, everyone was using SubPunch poison heal breloom. Whatever the style, Stall, HO, Bulky Offense... Everyone and their mothers are using...
  6. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    I agree, but at least it increases 4MSS of some threats if it does not tera. Actually, this is annoying. Forget this idea pls.
  7. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    I liked this idea, like the pokemon can only terastalize if it has Tera Blast on it's move slot. I mean, not every tera abuser needs Tera Blast and this restricts the "everyone can tera with no drawback" thing.
  8. Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion

    I know it's a complex ban, but I still think creating a "Terastall ban list" can please both sides. Not banning a type of tera, but like: Terastal Clause: "The following pokemon can't terastalize.". Problems: identifying the ones that makes the mechanic broken and community complains, more...
  9. Metagame Shared Power [OM of the Month]

    The Flash Fire + Fluffy combo got an upgrade with Well-Baked Body. And it can be upgraded with Ting-Lu's Vessel of Ruin, the same way Ice Scales can be with Wo-Chien's Tablets of Ruin. Levitate has an upgrade with Earth Eater, on a pokemon that learns Shed Tail and can receive Prankster...
  10. Metagame Full Potential [Leader's Choice]

    Cool meta! So, if i understood it correctly Revavroom @ Leftovers Ability: Filter EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe Adamant Nature - Shift Gear - Overheat - Iron Head - Zen Headbutt This thing can use Overheat the way it wants, because it will use it's attack or speed (depends how much Shift...

    Question (probably dumb one): I was testing arround with Wind Rider :sv/Brambleghast: and, in Wind Moves category, Sandstorm is listed. Shouldn't Sandstorm/Stream activate Wind Rider at least once? It did not activated. It is actually immune to wind moves, so it shouldn't be damaged by...
  13. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    I have to say how much fun it is to use Lokix. Even with not a high BST, it has amazing dual stab priority, pivot and coverage. Throw a CB on it and start spamming tinted lens boosted First Impression, Sucker Punch, U-Turn and Axe Kick. It surprises a lot of roaring moons, dragapults, iron...
  14. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    Well, those are good suggestions but... I don't know. I feel like I am not capable of judging this. Historically, smogon had not included something that affects competitive that are not in the main games, like tera-type on team preview. But again, last gen was the first time a whole mechanic was...
  15. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion [ SEE POST #3044 -- TIERING SURVEY UP ]

    So... Unfortunately, Tera looks broken. And, IMO, there is no place for complex bans also. "Ban Teras from the same type, to avoid Super Stab" I agree super stab is dumb, but this is not even the main problem about Tera. The problem is the use of the mechanic by borderline broken pokemon that...

    Played like... 3 random matches with the most lazy team I could make. Just put a lot of threats together and clicked battle button. Flutter Mane is an abomination. This thing needs to go ASAP, there is no need to wait for nothing. This disgusting stab combo with high offensive stats + enough...

    So i just searched for Chilly Reception on Google... Found an amazon link for a book that looks like an erotic fanfic made in alaska, and the shirtless muscle-man on the book's cover kind of looks like tatooed Professor Turo.
