    FWG Core Discussion

    Those following regional results have probably noticed that Fire/Water and Fire/Water/Grass cores are big at the moment. For those who haven't been following the results and discussion, this essentially boils down to: Fire's good resistance to Fairy and offensive match up against Steel, Water's...

    Artwork for our Live Programs

    Hi I know I have a thread up here already asking for submissions, but this one is pretty different from the former so I figured it should have a separate thread. In case you haven't noticed, we've started regular programs for our twitch channel! Our current schedule is Mudkip Mondays...

    XY UU Beta Discussion (Read post #32)

    Approved by me also kokoloko and Arcticblast With the XY OU metagame slowly but surely taking shape, we have usage statistics reliable enough to create a XY UU Beta tier. This tier is not official and is not even close to balanced. No suspect tests will be run, and the only changes to the tier...

    Streaming Overlays

    The Smogcast crew is looking for overlays to use while streaming to make our streams look attractive and professional. The overlays we've been using get the job done, but they are fairly basic so we're looking for an upgrade. Some requirements: 1280x720 ratio of 4:3 for all camera holes Put...

    UU C&C Needs

    This was approved by kokoloko a while ago As you guys can see from the thinning list of analyses in the UU subforum, UU C&C is almost done with its final revamps! However, there is still work to be done for you UU contributors. UU only has a few dedicated articles. Go here to get an idea...

    Mew (QC 4/4) (GP 2/2)

    [Overview] <p>After residing in Uber for the DPP era, Mew finds itself in the odd position of being demoted two tiers to the UU tier. While Mew still has its classic movepool that features every TM and move tutor move in the game, it cannot make up for its bland Psychic typing and decent, but...

    Bronzong (QC 3/3) (GP 2/2)

    [Overview] <p>Bronzong's outstanding base 116 Defense and Special Defense stats, combined with its unique typing in the tier which grants it eight resistances and two immunities, make it an impressive tank. Bronzong takes powerful attacks from all-out attackers such as Cincinno, Flygon, and...

    Weavile (QC 2/3)

    [Overview] Great late-game Pokemon capable of sweeping large portions of the Underused metagame. Blistering 125 Base speed lets Weavile outspeed a handful of common scarfers and the majority of the unboosted metagame - only Meloetta-P and Crobat are faster. Base 120 Attack lets Weavile tear...

    Rotom-F (QC 3/3) (GP 2/2)

    [Overview] <p>The reintroduction of Snow Warning and Abomasnow to UU has given Rotom-F a new life, as it can now reliably use its powerful STAB Blizzard. While its stats aren't off the charts, they aren't bad either. It outspeeds many good Pokemon, such as Heracross, Kingdra, and Nidoking, its...

    Milotic (QC 4/4) (GP 2/2)

    [Overview] <p>The UnderUsed tier is filled to the brim with bulky Water-types, and all of them fill some sort of niche the others lack; Blastoise has the valuable Rapid Spin, Slowbro and Slowking boast Fighting-type resistances and nearly endless recovery with Regenerator, Suicune has more...

    Walrein (QC 3/3) [GP 4/4]

    [Overview] <p>Walrein's niche in UU stems from its decent bulk and access to great passive recovery in hail via Ice Body. With support from Snow Warning, Walrein restores 1/8 of its health every turn and can use Protect to gain back 1/4 of its health before the opposing Pokemon can even land a...

    Intro Stars of the Mimic Glitch Metagame Other Metagames are fun and interesting distractions. They can have different rules, different Pokemon available, and are enjoyable to play as a break from the normal metagames. However, all splinter metagames eventually suffer the same fate: lack...
