    I'm using Hoodra AV with some success in place of Archaludon on the old sample team :Pelipper::Barraskewda::Kingambit::Archaludon::Iron_Treads::Raging_Bolt:. The difference between physical and special bulk is noticeable, so it doesn't fulfill the same function, but it makes matchups against...

    I agree that for now Dragapult is not banworthy, but for me he is better now than in generation 8. Scarf is an almost non-existent item for outspeed, being replaced by the 1-use Booster Energy. There are no more Tapus, especially Fini, in addition to status healing moves being less distributed...

    Any value above 50% is arbitrary. But 55% seems like a fair and acceptable path for both sides. In a 55% x 45% scenario there is still a 10% difference in votes/players to guarantee the desired consistency in the decision. For actions in the council there is nothing to change imo. Happy to see...

    You lose the lure effect in the same way you lose offensively, but on a much smaller scale. My problem with Blast is that I can't see the move as separate from the Terastal mechanics. I'm anti-Tera but I prefer this $h1t intact rather than mischaracterized and fragmented. Obviously it's an...

    CBand + Sun + Tera with both proto Speed and Attack sweeps entire archetypes, and Breaking Swipe + DD variants beat even Dondozo. "But Dozo can perform Body Press", GFire simply starts performing Tera Ghost. "But Dozo can run Tera Fairy'', becoming weak to Iron Head seems like a very...

    He probably will. If rain becomes less common we may start to see more Heatran, although Volcarona Tera Ground is still discouraging. Air Baloon Tera Fairy Heatran is the only answer to GFire.

    We have players who want to make up for lost time with suspects, surveys and others, and players who want slower and "organic" development. And neither of these 2 groups are wrong. Although I believe that a large part of the community would be against it, and the council would avoid it as much...

    Small note, not only good in rain or sun, but if someone wants to use Galarian Slowking to change the weather, Raging Bolt can take advantage of Weather Ball Ice and have pseudo Bolt-Beam coverage.

    It's not exactly/just Kyurem. It was the third suspect where 60% x 50% +1 made a difference in not changing something in the metagame; Terastal and Kingambit too. People are wondering about whether a larger margin is actually needed rather than a majority, because at the end of the day the...

    Hydrapple stall mirror match is difficult to make progress on. Two experienced players will probably spend a few turns with Mirror Gliscor until they realize they need their PP. But when making switchs, the opposing Gliscor can punish by taking away the item from everything except Hydrapple and...

    Announcement np: SV OU Suspect Process, Round 10 - London Bridge is Falling Down

    During the ladder I saw things like Dragon Tail Archaludon, legitimately dealing chip damage to its few counters. I also saw the popular Rain team changing Tera Fairy > Dragon, putting enormous pressure on Clodsire. 252+ SpA Tera Dragon Archaludon Draco Meteor vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Clodsire...

    Well, the polarization of opinions and the lack of 60% consensus on basically everything has stagnated, but finding out some facts can help make things better. Terastal apparently isn't going away. Counters are no longer counters, free coverage and free extra defensive synergy too. I would also...

    Peaked #2 (2045 ELO) – Hydrapple Stall

    Sorry for double post. I would like to mention 18 IV Speed in Dondozo as an alternative. This makes him slower and consequently acts sooner than Brave 0 Speed IV Ursaluna under Trick Room. You can use Curse and get some breathing time. In addition to being slower than other Dondozo in mirror...

    Peaked #2 (2045 ELO) – Hydrapple Stall

    I was unfortunate enough to find all of the team unusual weaknesses like Hoopa-U, Volcanion, and Ursaluna chasing me. As an attempt to add something, put female gender in Dondozo and Gliscor, which have contact moves, eventually a Cute Charm CM Enamorus may bother you.

    I'm ok putting the requirements in the same basket and evaluating the best for the tier. Including Quick Bans, kokoloko or whatever.

    I understand supermajority for the council, but tiers like UU only ask for 50% on their suspects. I hope that some enthusiast with good words will make a topic on Policy Review, which would be the best place to discuss this. Things are not moving forward, and it is not due to a lack of popular...
