    Research Scarlet & Violet Battle Mechanics Research

    According to the research here, transforming into the target will gain you the current rage fist boosts they have. I'm not sure about hitting a pokémon while transformed, but switching Ditto out and in again will update it to the rage fist user's current counter.

    A new generation is out, which means that SSB4 is officially an older generation metagame! After playing over 6,000 games, this is my final, definitive tier list for the format (tiers are ordered). Thanks for making such a fun meta!

    Metagame Revelationmons

    The joke is that Regieleki exclusively has strong electric STAB options and nothing else.

    Don't worry, we're working on an update VR list and Kingdra is definitely on there.

    Metagame Partners in Crime

    Let's talk about one of my favourite strategies in Partners in Crime: Skill Swap. A lot of already good doubles pokémon, particularly support pokémon, learn skill swap naturally and may have a free moveslot. A lot of Partners in Crime is taking advantage of your partner's shared ability to make...

    My point isn't that expanding force on Articuno-Galar is stronger, it's that everything else is better AND you still have a strong single target move.

    Metagame Partners in Crime

    While I agree expanding force isn't that useful for itself, its flying typing, useful movepool (tailwind in particular), and much better stats including an incredible 125 SpA make it far better than Gothitelle or Meowstic. Losing out on double expanding force is a big downside, but everything...

    Metagame Re-Evolution

    I used Avalugg quite a bit just as a defensive stopgap + spinner + paired with Ninetales-A. It was the first team I built, and Avalugg never came off it. I'm not surprised to see it have good usage.

    Bug Reports v4 [READ ORIGINAL POST before posting]

    Spider Web should have the 'bypasses Protect' flag. BUG STATUS: NOT A BUG, it should not in fact have it, it's unlike Block/Mean Look (DaWoblefet)

    Metagame Revelationmons

    This is something I've been saying for a while. Similarly, the reason I believe people find Thundurus-T 'broken' is because they're all running physically defensive mons. Special options are perfectly good and viable, but just benefit less from the gimmick of the meta, since most special...

    Metagame Partners in Crime

    Contrary is awesome. :ss/Lurantis: Lurantis is full on support, providing Contrary and very useful options in leaf storm and superpower. Defog can also be used for fun misses, and low sweep provides a very useful boost for allies. For example... :ss/Volcarona: Quiver dance is useful for...

    Metagame Partners in Crime

    Some priority options I think could be good: :ss/Scizor: :ss/Perrserker: Scizor provides bullet punch and technician, while Perrserker provides fake out and steely spirit. With steely spirit double applying, that's a 3.375x boost to bullet punch. Not too shabby, especially when you consider...

    Ok guys so I have had a genius idea. Homunculus' Vanity should heal the opponent by 50% of their health, restore 1 PP to all the user's moves, move the turn counter back one turn, and retain its current other effects. What do you guys think?

    Format Discussion Super Staff Bros 4 Discussion Thread

    Instruct has very little bulk, so can only realistically come in after a KO. He then only has one move he's realistically clicking, soda break, allowing you to limit the mark to one or two mons quite easily. Soda break itself does minimal damage, and so Instruct just doesn't do much until he...

    Yea true Instruct is busted please nerf. Maybe remove the marking mechanic, soda break's flinch chance, and prevent soda break switching you out. A priority switch move which also flinches? Busted. Also explosion is 250 power that's too high, replace that with tackle. Memento is -2 to each...

    https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8superstaffbros4-1576911479 This could be an oversight, but it's cool either way: Kris can transform into Pokémon not in the game such as Hisuian formes (Turn 21).

    You can't give the ability to more than two pokémon in the same team who don't naturally get them, with the exception of regenerator, which is capped to 2 total (including pokémon who get it naturally).
