    I'd like to have a look at how sleep moves are balanced by Gamefreak. Yawn is balanced around a 1 turn delay. This one is obvious really, and a lot of things can happen in that one turn Spore is balanced around low speed, poor distribution and even Pokemon design Toedscruel, the fastest spore...

    Not too much into gambling, may I interest you into Healing Wish + Gravity Blissey instead? Gives you several turns of uninterrupted Hustling and a safe entry point. Blissey can also set rocks if you want these up

    Ngl in terms of Ursulana I think it's perfectly reasonable to run less than 31 Speed EV's on whatever is lurking in the lower depths of the speed tiers. It's not like these suckers are going to outspeed anything anyway, might as well ditch these 31 Speed EV's and make them slow creep the Trick...

    Honestly at this point just pick whichever wierd move option helps your team best. Like Rocks for a secondary rocker Facade to be able to deal damage after a Burn Fly if you want a secondary STAB without immunities Taunt to mess with walls. BB if you struggle with screens Fling to turn the...

    Ok, so SubSeed Electrode-H is pretty fun. Like this thing can force some switches which you can capitalize on with Thunder Wave and hazards. The Paralysis is also pretty nice for Ursulana, that thing is nasty with Paralysis support. Dunno if it's OU material, but it might be worth cooking with...

    In OU, you really can't get an Entrainment off. In this meta however, dying equals Entrainment. As many people know this, they don't like to kill Durant and hold back. So Durant generally lasts longer and gets multiple Entrainments off. Also, OU Durant needs Eject Button to be intact to do...

    Thanks for the feedback. I personally run Durant with Eject Button and Dugtrio with Sub/Protect/HC/Earthquake and remove the Flying Types before attempting to sweep. I personally managed to grab 3 kills pretty often and it was not that rare that my Durant survived longer than my Dugtrio. I had...

    What do you think about Entrainment Truant Durant? Outside of trolling people, is Entrainment Truant Durant + Protect Hone Claws Dugtrio an acceptable core or complete gimmick garbage? Entrainment is in the last slot, of course

    I would prefer something like this: Beedrill-Mega @ Beedrillite Ability: Adaptability EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Double-Edge - Drill Run / Knock Off - Swords Dance - idk lol 120 STAB move backed by Adaptability will hurt, Electric immunity lets it block...

    Can we talk about Mega Beedrill? Mega buff means that it actually has a four moveslots and not 3 + Protect. It forces out all Tapus thanks to adaptability Poison Jab and can use the switches it forces to set up a sub or to create momentum with U-Turn. Pretty fun with Dugtrio. Or...

    Being able to bring things in safe is pretty big especially when you consider that you need Scarf Pheromosa, A-Ninetails or priority to hit them before they hit you with a rain boosted specs hydro pump. Hurricane also means that it really only needs it's STABs for damage. Politoed might have...

    I'd suggest something experimental. Like SubSalac Bibarel, Belly Drum Linoone or sticky meme ft. Refrigrator Rotom or Fedora Birb

    Snatch? Predicting it is much easier now and it should technically work because the moves are actually used. It would allow you to prevent the opposition from setting up while setting up on your own, which can be nice for things which don't have good set-up moves or want to save moveslots for...

    Sheddy isn't supposed to spread burns, thought. Or not primary. It's supposed to create switches, to lure in potential threats while you pivot into something which deals with these switch ins like Duggy or at least force them out for that sweet additional 12.5% pebble damage. Will O Wisp is just...

    Pokémon Araquanid

    To be honest, if you want to bore your opponent to death with chip damage, just use Pyukumyuku. It doesn't care about set-up and is equally bulky. Using chip damage to beat your opponents when you have Huge Power for water moves is just an extremly huge waste.

    Pokémon Pyukumuku

    Are there any good BP recievers with Unburden? I'm thinking about passing Curse to a reciever which has Unburden + White Herb. White Herb removes the drops and triggers Unburden, thus doubling your speed and resulting in effectivly passing bulk + power + speed. This thing would be the passer...

    Pokémon Silvally

    I guess you might still be able to use Imprision on Ground Sylvally if you really hate VoltTurn. Just replace Parting Shot with U-Turn and boom, you have something which blocks. The other slots are STAB + coverage or other utility options, maybe a move which prevents one of your Pokes to simply...

    Type: Null, Silvally Discussion

    It is a slow and really bulky U-Turn user with offensive presence. Sure, the lack of Recovery sucks. It basically means that it can't do it's job very often. However, if it does it's job, then something will die or, at least, get crippled very badly.

    Old Mon BST/Ability Change Discussion

    To be honest, I believe it will still be OU, at least after that marshmallow of doom gets the hammer. While losing the nice ground immunity hurts him a lot, it is still really fast and hurts hard, while having a very spammable STAB. Also, bringing in frail stuff is pretty easy this gen, thanks...

    Enchanted Items [Now Multibility]

    Would it be possible to code it in a way that you only need to write the name of the ability in the item field? This would be treated as an item which adds the ability you typed into the item field to the pokemon.
