    Facade doesn't double in power when asleep unfortunately. Also I tried using Snore on ROM a while back and it didn't work, dunno if the coding was unfinished or just glitched.

    Metagame np: USUM PU Stage 4.5- Spikes [Pyroar Banned]

    For me not banning Kingler came down to its combination of underwhelming bulk and speed. While Kingler does lack many solid counters, I find checks are sufficient in dealing with it since it's likely only going to get 1 or 2 chances a game to come in a break stuff in the first place. Yes, mons...

    Even a completely uninvested in hp Ferrothorn (but like, who is gonna give the bot a team with that spread) upon taking a 58% drain punch would mean Buzzwole would recover around 40%. It's definitely not stacking as it should. Anyway here's a set: Tapu Lele @ drainingkiss Ability: Psychic...

    Yeah, but 58% of an hp invested Ferrothorn is 205hp, which works out at about 50% for a full hp Buzzwole which sits at 417hp, so it's definitely not working as it should.

    The stacking of draining moves doesn't seem to be working on ROM- at turn 20 here is a Buzzwole with Leech Life as its item Drain Punching a Ferrothorn for 58%, and only recovering 24% of its hp.

    Oh duh yeah thanks, was just using the calc set without thinking. Probably worth going with a non -attk nature then for the guaranteed kill on Chansey with explosion.

    I think Victreebel should rise but I'm not sure it should do so based on its Sun sets, particularly when Aurorus is such a prominent mon and brings trouble to the playstyle as a whole. Instead I think it should do so for this set: Victreebel @ Life Orb Ability: Chlorophyll EVs: 132 HP / 252...

    Metagame Shared Power [Under Re-Construction!]

    Psychic Terrain doesn't block prankster dbond, and magic bounce is ran on these teams to prevent status. Psychic Terrain actually works really well with them because Hoopa-U is one of the best dbond abusers and it helps espeon hit hard along of course with stopping opposing priority. Doublade...

    The definition in use is this: "Pokémon A counters Pokémon B if Pokémon A can manually switch into Pokémon B and still win every time, even under the worst case scenario, without factoring in hax." And besides, considering Rat is getting like 7 switchins to dark pulse and upon each of those...

    Strength Sap isn't as much about setup opportunities, although it does offer that, as it as about making it hard to stop. With options in the last slot like coverage, sleep powder or safeguard it seems to fit in C, which is full of mons with only small niches (with a few exceptions that could...
