    I think Hillary 2016 would be a better comparison because if elections were decided by a simple majority we both would have won, but they aren’t and now everyone’s fucked because of it

    If I wanted to fight NPCs I’d go on cartridge

    So-called “free thinkers” when someone criticizes a blatantly wrong tiering decision

    I’m not your brother and you’re not fit to call him Christ.

    Which is still vastly preferable to nothing happening at all.

    I’m just stating a peaceful solution that I think a decent number of people will get on board with. Be glad I didn’t suggest what I actually want to happen. I’ve been.

    You’re called the “No Action” camp for a reason

    So over 200 voters supported action on Tera and found out that their votes didn’t count because their voices were drowned out by a vocal minority, and now competitive is dead until the Council decides to retest it. Perhaps it’s time to make our voices known through more effective means. I...

    I personally believe it’s in the same category as the banned RNG mechanics (evasion, OHKO moves, King’s Rock) of being uncompetitive but not necessarily broken or even optimal. It’s uncompetitive for a different reason than the three I mentioned—those aren’t optimal because they’re...

    Stone Axe and Ceaseless Edge have the “secondary” flag, so they’re boosted by Sheer Force. I think that also means the hazard-setting effect is blocked by Shield Dust and Covert Cloak, but that’ll have to be tested on cartridge post-Home.

    I think there were a couple more sprinkled throughout the lower tiers, but OU’s only had Mega Sableye and Wynaut/Wobbuffet (back before anything else got Shadow Tag and before Wynaut and Wobbuffet got anything else). Defensive mons almost never catch a ban because they’re never overtly broken...

    I would still run Spin on Tusk because it becomes pretty scary at +1 Speed and really scary if you can pull a second one off. Out of the moves you listed, I don’t really like running any on Great Tusk except maybe Ice Spinner. Head Smash is inaccurate and self-inflicted damage moves aren’t...

    Wait, there are things that stop Chi-Yu? All I know is stuff that slows it down.

    It’s probably solely the result of those two spammers from earlier in the thread desperately trying to make it work. You have to remember that it’s a noobtrap mon and will always get significantly more usage than it deserves. I must say, though, if DLC brings us better Snow/Veil setters later...

    Yeah, Quaq doesn’t have as good of a matchup against Gholdengo as it’d like to, especially the Scarf Thunderbolt sets I’ve seen popping up. It certainly has the capability of beating Gholdengo if played correctly, but it can’t do it as well as the Donphans. If you want a spinner, just use Tusk...

    What the actual shit, how did Espathra not rise? I genuinely feel like there was a data error of some kind. Also, a part of me is really hoping Tier Shift gets approved again before Blissey, Slowbro, and Weavile rise out of RU.

    Dachsbun might rise because it’s dough. In all seriousness, enough people are desperate enough for Chi-Yu answers that Dachsbun, one of the only things that sorta-kinda answers the damn fish, may see some time in OU. In the same vein, Azumarill might rise for its astounding ability to almost...
