    Metagame Views From The Council

    i think part of the idea of a tera blast ban is the subtext that tera as a whole won't be banned, which is pretty likely. it's way too popular amongst both casuals and top players to just be completely deleted, so a tera blast ban is something that makes tera less cheesy while being more likely...

    imo i would rather some of the better types get nerfed a bit than buffing the worse ones. it makes the game more interesting when types have clearly defined roles like how ice is great offensively and awful defensively. i like the idea of a type like water being good at offense and defense but...

    i feel like the points about sleep not being broken kinda miss the mark because we already decided long ago that it is, hence why we have sleep clause. no one is arguing for unrestricted sleep because it's a mechanic that is fundamentally broken and uncompetitive and only really held in place...

    i think archaludon is probably the latest bloomer of them all considering it took 3 years to evolve. makes all the other pseudos look like a bunch of phonies

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [Archaludon is now banned]

    ik this is a tired discussion but acting like restricting terapagos from tera'ing is the same as banning blaziken from using z moves is so disingenuous. terapagos literally becomes a new mon with different stats and ability, it's not the same as saying eleki can't tera. not even trying to say...

    gouging fire has me a bit underwhelmed, i was hoping for something crazier like wake and raging bolt. iron boulder looks so silly though, actually kinda like it lol

    what was wrong with the crown tundra unbanning? it was sorted out quickly and its how we realized blaziken wasnt actually that broken. sure the meta was chaotic for a bit but it really didn't last that long.

    speculating on dropping ubers is fun but i just don't think anything with cover legendary stats + a giant movepool can be balanced in ou. you can point to mons who can hit similar numbers or run similar sets but the fact solgaleo has the stats and moves to reasonably be choice band or a calm...

    i guess it could be that astera on most mons is nerfed protean while terapagos' ability makes it so it has unnerfed protean? and it could be an ability locked to tera'ing like embody aspect, so it wouldn't be a huge deal for future games that have terapagos but no tera. that being said the...

    really fascinates me how hard people turned on hgss tbh, feels like not too long ago it was considered easily one of the best pokemon games. personally i have a lot of fond memories of playing it but it really does feel hard to get into it now. an underrated problem with the games imo is that...

    Favourite Fanwork Buff?

    i think it's really cool and tbh i wish it was done more often. a lot of fan projects from my experience will just give you a pick from random set of starters (or at times even just all of them) and i wish people experimented mroe with alternative starting pkmn. i can understand the hesitancy...

    i feel like some people weren't here for the gen 8 dlc tier shifts. just because a mon drops after a big release doesnt mean its now forever ass, kyurem literally spent multiple tier shifts in ru last gen lol

    i was cackling over knock and scald being back but now i'm genuinely curious. maybe they genuinely nerfed its distribution by a lot? who knows

    SPOILERS! Scarlet & Violet Leaks Thread - Data/Mechanics

    i think blood moon ursaluna might have its stats shuffled a bit. a bst buff is possible but its bst is already pretty high and its stats are well distributed so i cant imagine game freak either a) giving it a ridiculous 600+ bst or b) just making it a bit bulkier and stronger and calling it a...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion, Part II [CLOSED FOR DLC]

    main issue with a tera banlist i think is that broken mons love to tera, making it more vague as to if the mon is broken or if them being able to tera is the issue. like, imagine if when chien pao got suspected, people went "oh only tera dark is broken, suspect its ability to tera" so it got...

    Metagame Terastallization Tiering Discussion, Part II [CLOSED FOR DLC]

    i don't think it'd take too much of a stretch to get tera blast banned, can't it just be argued that it allows any mon to invalidate its checks and counters? even if most mons are obviously not broken with it, it inherently introduces an unhealthy level of unpredictability into the game. that...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    man, i never really picked up on hgss having worse dialogue than gsc but seeing them directly compared feels really damning. is this a consistent thing throughout the whole game? it really feels like an awkward fan translation when compared to the original. also, that quote from after the indigo...
