    Metagame [SPOILERS] Scarlet & Violet OU Discussion [BAN LIST POST 626]

    Apparently Slowking and Slowking-Galar are the only Pokemon that can get Chilly Reception, though how they acquire this move is unknown. Chilly Reception - The user tells a chillingly bad joke before switching places with a party Pokémon in waiting. This summons a snowstorm lasting five turns...

    I hope those unknown moves are easily obtainable. Chilly Reception Slowking/Slowking-G + Baxcalibur seems like a fun bulky offense core for singles. Good type synergy between them as well.

    We can only hope :eeveehide: I feel like they gave Typhlosion-H a sub-par HA for balance reasons, at least in VGC format. At base 119 SPA, it's the strongest Eruption user and has a decent speed tier. It can do some crazy damage, especially when Terastalized. And unlike other Eruption users, it...

    Well...they were certainly the last Pokemon I expected to get this move :smogthink: It does seem like a nice fit competitively when paired with Regenerator. Also, Kanto Slowking has a nice set of resistances that covers a lot of Ice types' weaknesses. It could be a great pivot for Snowstorm teams.

    Meowscarada really is the new Greninja. That movepool is glorious. Seems like it has everything it needs to perform the same roles as Greninja did in OU. It's a good thing they nerfed Protean cause this thing seems like it'll have a ton of viable sets. Just glancing at its movepool, it could do...

    Yay, I'm glad to see that Tinkaton's movepool is pretty nice. Coverage options are a bit lacking but +2 Gigaton Hammer should dent most resists anyways. It also has a pretty nice movepool for VGC coupled with Intimidate immunity and amazing typing. An Assault Vest set or Helping Hand support set...

    Pawmot-0 - 70/115/70/70/60/105 (Total: 490) - Electric/Fighting - Volt Absorb/Natural Cure/Iron Fist Pawmot looks pretty promising. Not too crazy, but it has good offensive stats and Iron Fist. If it has a solid movepool, it could end up being what Electivire wishes it could be.

    Some of the Hisuian forms got new abilities! Curious to see how they fare. Samurott-H is a pretty significant buff. Arcanine-H: Intimidate/Flash Fire/Rock Head (Lost Justified) Typhlosion-H: Blaze/Blaze/Frisk (Lost Flash Fire) Sneasler: Pressure/Unburden/Poison Touch (new ability)...

    SS OU CB Braviary No.1 peak

    Aegislash can't be trapped by Dugtrio (Ghost-types are immune to trapping), so your NP Lucario set is going to have a hard time dealing with it. imo, SD Lucario would be better since it'll have Earthquake to deal with Aegislash and Toxapex. Bullet Punch can be used to revenge kill faster Ghost...

    OU Alcremie

    I'm not QC but I think it's worth mentioning that Aroma Veil also blocks Disable, which makes Alcremie a decent answer to SubDisable Dragapult. This helps further distinguish Alcremie from Clefable, since Clefable risks getting Moonblast disabled. Also, a spread of 252 HP / 188 Def / 68 SpD...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion (Usage stats in post #944)

    Gengar is very threatening but it’s hard to find a spot on a team for it. Its low usage doesn’t really surprise me. I often find myself wanting to use Dragapult or Hydreigon instead. Dragapult’s higher speed and ability to hit behind Substitutes brings a lot more utility to teams than Gengar...

    Pet Mod [Gen 8] To The Gigantamax! (Moved to V2, check post #39)

    Pokemon: Avalugg G-Max Move: G-Max Iceberg: Ice-type move that places an iceberg on the opponent's field (Ice-type Stealth Rock). While Hail is in effect, the iceberg cannot be removed by Rapid Spin, Defog, or Court Change. Role: Avalugg is a good physical wall and hazard controller. This G-Max...

    Max Raid Discussion Thread

    Does anyone know if soloing or hosting raids gives you a higher catch rate? The reason I ask is because I joined 4 different players' G-Max Alcremie raids and it broke out of my Ultra Ball all 4 times after the first shake. Yesterday, I got lucky and found my own G-Max Alcremie. I soloed the...

    SPOILERS! Sword and Shield in-game team discussion thread

    Finished my Sword playthrough yesterday. My final team was Rillaboom / Grimmsnarl / Sirfetch'd / Toxtricity / Centiskorch / Drednaw. I benched Dubwool, Boltund, and Corviknight early on since they felt like they were deadweight most of the time. I finished in approximately 39 hours. I spent a...

    Sword & Shield Battle Mechanics Research

    Regarding G-Max Copperajah's unique "steel-type Stealth Rock" hazard, can traditional hazard removal methods (Rapid Spin, Defog) remove them? Does G-Max Drednaw's get a "water-type Stealth Rock"? If so, does it get boosted by rain?

    Pokémon Inteleon

    The datamine shows that it has a higher critical hit ratio, similar to moves like Leaf Blade. But yeah, it's odd that they'd leave that out of the move description. Hydro Pump is better than Snipe Shot on Scope Lens + Focus Energy sets though, since Scope Lens + Focus Energy grants a 100%...

    Max Raid Discussion Thread

    I really wish the NPCs were better. I've been having connection issues so I've mostly been doing raids solo, and it's really frustrating getting that damn Magikarp user on my team. :puff: Raids and the wild area are so much fun though. I haven't had this much fun in a Pokemon game in a long...
