    I don't think I'll ever see an argument for item clause in my life to address the three above rq, a) just looks like I got beat by double scarf once and I'm mad to me, b) team building becomes worse and more awkward but don't worry it's in a fun way???, c) just not true I've seen one team ever...

    Good post tho I don't know how I feel about hydreigon rise it's defensive utility doesn't dissapoint as you mention but I find it struggles to turn that into offence against a lot of popular teams especially with that speed tier maybe just me not using it right though so feel free to correct me.

    Very curious on what kind of melms your facing living 2 eqs a melm one shotting a volcarona and living a +2 keldeo and apparently easily on top of that. Also don't think I'm gonna overlook "very obviously broken" that's just absurd idk whether you haven't read the thread or something but...

    Gonna start with I think the meta will be much much worse with melm gone but that shouldn't have an impact on a suspect not their point. The real reason to not ban melm is it's just flat out not broken. The most problematic parts of it in my opinion are 1. It's trading ability vs offensive...

    Feels a crime to rank something with calcs like this 252+ Atk Thundurus Lash Out vs. 252 HP / 136 Def Garchomp: 75-89 (17.8 - 21.1%) -- possible 7HKO after Leftovers recovery like comparing to Zapdos which has superior defensive utility matches better into grounds superior movepool the few...

    A notable thing people seem to forget to consider is realistic counterplay you can bring up sand attack if you feel like it but that's a move that has immunities loses to one switch and is not making any progress (edit I'm a moron was thinking of mud slap tho just switch out). Twave a more...

    SHARPEDO HO Peak 21st

    Nothing specific just general longevity plus with protect it can often stack up most notable example is assuming terrain is up as first to come to mind tho plus I generally find myself less in situations where I plan to setup on the ground anyway tho ofc it would be useful

    How do any of those answer band weavile, ejecting something out with red card is hardly a reliable answer especially if you take severe damage while doing so or scouting with eject button which is may scout a set and the move once which is nice ig but limited a lot and lose an item. And resist...
