  1. Invalid Export Team during Battles (including randbats) + Import Option in Randbats Calc

    Sorry in advance if this is the wrong place to post it There should be an option to import team your team straight when in battle. This is mostly for randbats where you have no way to export your team for quicker calculations purposes. You would save way more time since you dont have to fix...
  2. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    I'm glad that most people acknowledge pivot moves plus boots being a problem rather than boots itself. Boots make both rocks weak pokemon and pivot users better, but only the latter is potentially a problem. To add on the boots + pivot move discussion, here are the list of OU abusers versus the...

    For pokemon analysis, would you consider also adding a "hidden information/interactions" if a pokemon has some? Secret information includes stuff like shiny form or gender gving away what set it can or cannot have like female greninja revealing it's not battle bond or keldeo-resolute revealing...

    What made lycanroc rock banned in the dlc 1 meta, but not dlc 2 and why did the reverse happen for terrakion?
  5. Format Discussion Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    Galarian moltres should not get substitute since it does not activate berserk. Avoiding status isn't worth the moveslot when - it doesn't always get leftovers - most defensive pokemon can still break its sub in one hit - it doesn't use a move that boosts either of its defenses like bulk up or...

    bumping this since it seems to have been buried by the Hydro Pump vs Liquidation sharpedo discussion. Thoughts?

    Cinderace is actually part of the list of mons that "slow the game down and turn matches into tepid switch-fests" The slow defensive pivots need some way of reliably chipping down the opponents because teleport and uninvested U-Turns and Volt Switches won't do much. That's where offensive...

    Dark pulse should be used over shadow ball if shadow ball is just being used for coverage because it lowers spdef when dynamaxed. Relevant mons affected are meowstic-f, porygon-z, gothitelle and beheeyem

    Another thing to add is that they rarely do complex bans on overpowered pokemon. They usually do it for uncompetitive mechanics (moody, evasion, baton pass, trapping) or mechanics that enable your team too well (weather in lower tiers/BW, baton pass and trapping again). And yeah pivot moves are...
  10. Pet Mod Megas for All v7 - Kalos Slate 4: Espeon, Umbreon and Sylveon! | Please read the first post! | Fully playable through Kalos Slate 3!

    I feel like this part of the post deserves to be highlighted because too many people missed it: Personally I think it's fine for all forms to get the same coverage moves. Even if it doesn't make sense for something like the winter form to use fire moves, you can view this as a Castform...

    I have some critiques regarding game consistencies. I think Mold Breaker should affect this. Mold Breaker applies if the ability directly causes a change in a move's usability, which is what happens in this case. I don't see the need for this ability getting special treatment like Shadow...
  12. Smogon Simple Questions & Suggestions Thread

    Got a flurry of questions. What are points, how do you get them and why are they one of the main things displayed on a user's profile when 99% of the profiles I see have 0 points? Also out of curiosity which user has the most points? Why are banned profiles not available to view? Lastly, how...
  13. Data Usage-Based Tier Update for October 2020

    It's painful to see a previous OU staple for multiple generations drop this low. Knock offs and tricks being stronger than ever, voltturn being spammed, and the abundance of bulky pivots makes Snorlax really struggle in RU. Power creep sucks. Pls gamefreak, give this Slack Off

    How difficult is it to get reqs for the average player? I never tried getting reqs before since I'm not a huge smogon player and am busy/lazy irl but ive been quite bored since the quarantine started.
  15. Sauce for French Fries

    As the biggest french fries lover, can I just say that french fries is one of the most magical food ever invented. It taste great with just about any sauce, but still somehow taste best by itself. You would never run out of ways to eat french fries and since it taste great with no sauce and any...

    I'm generally against most bans but cmon you're being unfair to the pro-ban side. The problem with Pex is that it requires even more effort to KO it. The combination of Regenerator, Haze, status, toxic immunity, knock off and good mixed bulk means that it has ways to bypass a lot of its checks...

    F Now this means no Pokémon from gens 1-3 stayed OU since their release.
  19. Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    I did not think of this tbh, but this is actually a great idea that is simple to execute! As for your response to proposal 2, I agree with you. If both players have a say on what they give and take, it's more than likely going to end up in a meta where both players would have 3 weak Pokémon and...

    Link Cable Metagame Premise: An OU metagame where both teams would trade 3 Pokémon of their choice at team preview. When trading, you pick 3 Pokémon from your opponent while they do the same to you. The players would have access to the opponent's sets. Potential Bans and Threats: - Standard OU...
