    Warning: tons of noms upcoming From A- to A Hitmonchan should rise because of how threatening it is offensively. Fighting types are great right now, and Chan is no exceptions. Unlike other fighting types, Drain Punch gives it much-needed sustain through the match, and it's able to nail...

    Metagame np: SM PU Stage 1.1: Legend Has it [USM! post #60]

    I think Toxic Spikes are quite unhealthy in this metagame, to be honest.The main problem with Toxic Spikes is the sheer amount of pressure it puts on teams, notably putting in work versus basically every playstyle, from HO to Stall. While the hazard removal is at its best right now, our Toxic...

    Workshop Team! Me and some folks "decided" (I confess it was randpoke) to build around Primeape. Not gonna do in-depth explanations here but shoutouts to iRebel, Andather, Solar Flare, Twix, Moderation is Key and other people I don't remember since you didn't give me your accounts :p. Oh well...

    Metagame np: SM PU Stage 0 (Beta): Medieval [Vanilluxe and Tauros Banned]

    Giving my thoughts about the whole "please quickban" thing. Okay. I think people overstimate this thing's potential. A lot. While I can't deny Gallade is a fearsome wallbreaker, its far from perfect and its not really unhealthy or broken, neither restricts teambuilding. For starters, Psychic-...

    Well, you just said it yourself lol With Aurora Veil Offfense being so common as it is, countermeasures are pretty much required on teams and Regirock is pretty decent and dealing with the Veil core so yay

    Metagame PU Old Gens + Discussion (ADV PU Tier Shift)

    Warning: Gen 3 nom spam! Unranked -> C/C+ Staryu is a great water type in ADV PU. It's got great speed, sitting at base 85, similar to Seadra. While it's not strong as the sea horse or as bulky and strong as Wailord, it still stands on its own. First of all, it's got better coverage than both...

    Metagame PU Old Gens + Discussion (ADV PU Tier Shift)

    I feel like Sunflora's capabilies have been massively underrated. One of those is its sheer versatility. Sunflora's SunnyBeam set is not the only that exists, yet they beat most of the grass resists ShuckleDeath pointed out, Solar Beam clearly 2hkoing Koffing, even having a decent chance to OHKO...

    Metagame PU Old Gens + Discussion (ADV PU Tier Shift)

    Gen 3 Viability Rankings nom! Sunflora from A+ => S Sunflora is a very threatening mon in ADV PU. This tier lacks heavily in grass resists, which Sunflora appreciates; the few ones are actually beaten by Sunflora, such as Koffing or Tropius for example. Even special walls aren't safe from...

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    Hey! While I do agree that its strong and decently bulky, the sr weakness hinder its defensive capabilities, as most Fighting types also happen to carry rock coverage, which is prolly 2hkoiing after rocks. #VikaForPU About Duo x Behee, Duo is not bulkier than BEM... Well, not entirely. Duosion...

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    Well, to be fair, while Vikavolt is insanely powerful and even provides slow volt switches, the speed and lack of priority really hold it back. The bulk you mention isn't really that good. If you do some calcs, you'll find out that Vikavolt is not marginally bulkier, as calcs taking physical...

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    Although Stall took a huge hit with strong breakers like Aggron running around, I find it to be still a decent playstyle. Again, Gourg-XL has become one stall staple (Colbur mainly), because its one of the few defensive Zangoose checks. It's also nice that it forces 50/50 with Crabominable...

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    While I do agree defensive sets have their own niche, Lurantis' typing and natural bulk allow it outspeeding and dealing with a good portion of the avaliable rockers (with the expection of Metang, a lucky Probopass and Camel). Grass is an awesome offensive typing overall and its still able to...

    Oh, sorry, ur right, but even then, that's only considering the AoA set. SD has Superpower which clearly does at least ~50%, so that's a thing.

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    Palossand is NU at best as while its cool and all its typing and speed can be a liability sometimes. About Fraxure vs. Hakamo-O, pancake is prolly right because the main perk hakamo would have is fighting STAB to hit steel types but it lacks a truly powerful one, and Fraxure has an easier time...

    Metagame SM PU Alpha (playable on PS!)

    About Lurantis, you'd be better running Servine who's bulkier, has better MU vs non-defensive playstyles (come on, it outspeeds one of NU's speed benchmarks in base 80), has Knock Off to further cripple possible switch ins and is just a better mon in the 'wallbreaker' sense. Lurantis' niche is...
