    OU Discussing deoxys defense for ou

    Apologies for the rather condescending (and now deleted) post I made earlier. For compensation, I will make a post that is at least a bit more sensitive and that actually has more effort put into it (and hopefully this one doesn’t get taken down). Honestly, I feel like a general question that...

    Why is this even allowed in the Q&A section? Finch edit: I told him explicitly to post elsewhere, but he didn’t listen and by the time I got online numerous people had posted about it so now it’s kinda whatever:blobshrug:

    Ok, but if we follow that logic, wouldn't Latios + Alakazam technically be insufficient against Rain as well? Latios is an even worse switch-in for Specs Keldeo and doesn't enjoy taking burns + hazard chip if it's not running Recover.

    Wdym? Amoonguss is pretty much your pivot against water attacks like Scald/Keld/Thundy-T (granted, it doesn't enjoy burns but lets be honest, it's kind of hard to find a good Scald absorber that can also handle Keldeo and Thundurus-T consistently besides Celebi) and it's not like anything on...

    Bronzong Sand :tyranitar::skarmory::excadrill::amoonguss::bronzong::alakazam: Bronzong was a pokemon that ultimately fell into obscurity after 2018. Between its middling stats and propensity of being set-up fodder, it was a mon that was ultimately passed over for a long time. The rise of HO...

    This is for competitive teams, for in-game teams, I think you might want to post in the Orange Islands.

    Gen 2 An OU team. Question do you require spicks because it not on this.

    Earthquake and Fighting-type attacks exist. As for the team itself, I personally believe that Blissey kind of has some rather awkward synergy here. Since this team isn't necessarily Stall-oriented it just sticks out like a sore thumb. If you are worried about Zapdos that much, you already have...

    :heatran::terrakion: This is a fairly iconic pairing to any old-school BW player, but newer players may be a bit perplexed due to the two having overlapping weaknesses to dangerous threats such as Latios. Back then, Slowbro used to be far more popular than Slowking it is now due to its ability...

    Also, is it me or has Terrakion suddenly got a lot better with the Gem ban? I know that Terrakion has kind of taken a bit of a decline in popularity in the past few tournaments but its usage in the recent BW PL has been its highest yet in the current meta.

    :abomasnow::alakazam: Alakazam is one of the most threatening Pokemon in the tier with its amazing speed tier and endless coverage, but it also really wants a fair amount of support to break through Steels.
