    Metagame SS Monotype Metagame Discussion [Isle of Armor]

    Hey, long time no see, Monotype. Just thought I'd drop a janky set I've been using on Dark. Probably not optimal, but it's been pretty useful so far. Obstagoon @ Choice Scarf Ability: Guts EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Parting Shot - Switcheroo - Knock Off - Gunk...

    If I did the math right, that's 10am for me, so that should be fine. I'll plan on being on PS then

    Announcement Welcome! READ ME: Index / Rules / Announcements

    I've decided to step down from my positions as Monotype Forum Mod and Room Owner on PS. It's been a lot of fun helping Monotype grow over the years, but I haven't done much in either of those positions for quite a while, so it's time to give them up. Try not to bully me too much now that I...

    Tournament Monotype Premier League: Player Signups

    Name: Acast Metagames Played: BW, ORAS Timezone: GMT -5 Potential Activity Issues: might be too busy playing FGO Warning to the managers: I haven't played mons seriously in over a year. You'd literally be throwing away your bucks by bidding on this washed up RO, but I won't stop you if that's...

    Resource Monotype USM Viability Rankings

    Dugtrio is not a perfect pokemon by any means, but Arena Trap combined with its high speed, decent attack, and good movepool make it a very potent threat. It doesn't need to be perfect to be in A. Even S ranked mons aren't perfect. I'll be honest and say I don't play Monotype much anymore, but I...

    I guarantee the only reason I'm Lawful Evil and not Eien is because he's in WoA and I'm not. I'd like an unbiased opinion, tyvm

    Metagame SM Monotype Suspect #3: Shadow Tag

    The only reason this is a suspect instead of a quickban is that stag didn't come up in the conversation until long after the quickbanning rounds of the new generation. Now that the metagame is well established and relatively stable, the council didn't want to make a decision like this without...

    Metagame SM Monotype Suspect #3: Shadow Tag

    Being official has no influence on whether the council decides to host suspect tours. That being said, I'm sure they're not out of the question. It just hasn't been discussed. If one of our current council members wants to correct me or provide more detail, please do.

    Resource Monotype SM Viability Rankings

    I've had enough of this. I've had to delete an entire string of posts and they're all either one-liners, insulting, uninformed, or a combination of all three. If you don't have a constructive comment to make about the Viability Rankings, do not post in this thread. Any more shitposting will be...

    Announcement Welcome! READ ME: Index / Rules / Announcements

    I've never been happier to announce something than I am right now. Smogon's Senior Staff have decided to classify Monotype as an Official Metagame! From now on, Monotype will be treated the same as Ubers, OU, LC, etc in all aspects except for representation in official Smogon tournaments. Our...

    Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer: Monotype Edition

    I appreciate you posting about it, because I didn't realize the weebly was still linked anywhere. I just finished updating the links in the OP of the Metagame Discussion thread. As DoW said, there are no up-to-date usage stats, but all the other resources should now be linked correctly. If you...

    Ah, to be honest I was unaware they used parentheses to indicate it was a technicality. Sorry for that. In the case of Mega Latios, I'm sure it's just because it was only recently released and they haven't gotten around to updating it yet.

    Resource Monotype Sample Teams

    There's nothing wrong with the meta developing, but this is not the place to encourage that development. As Eien said only a few posts up, this thread is for new players to learn the current metagame. The closing comment in your post shows that you're aware your team is atypical. Eien made it...

    Because the fact that it's a technicality is unimportant. "OU by technicality" is a lot of unnecessary characters to say that Mega Latios is essentially OU.
