    Project SV OU - Victim of the Week (Week 44: CM Primarina)

    Obviously legit observation, but yeah it was Proto Speed to counter and not proto SpAtk. Also, even against Proto SpAtk Tera Water you can Protect after you've switch-in, then Tera Water + Wish, and then get your health back. As I said also, Tera Water is more of a "if I need I have this...

    :walking wake::torkoal::hatterene::roaring moon::great tusk::ceruledge: RMT Well I've done an RMT last week on a walking wake sun team so it literally takes no effort to share it here. very standard stuff apart from roaring moon's set and ceruledge. wake breaks, torkoal sets up sun and rocks...

    SV OU Sun Awakened

    hat is more of a glue mon than an active team player if that makes sense. games with this type of team don't last very long because you either out offense your opponent or you get outmanouvered. eject button hat is a swiss army knife fix to the stability of sun teams. this ability to fall back...

    we are definitely experiencing new toy syndrome with this wake frenzy that's going on, but it REALLY is a good mon. sun historically struggles to deal with water and dragon types and now you get a strong af water dragon with flamethrower and a water stab that works under sun, which helps you...

    I'm speculating as much as you are with this one, but I think this is exactly the reason why you saw this trend specifically on high ladder. When you reach high numbers on the ladder you start encountering some people trying to optimize their chances to reach the very top by going for teams...

    If we want to get technical about this, there is actually a giant counter to both: :ss/amoonguss: although there's more than many reasons not to run this in OU so I wouldn't personally try to find a perfect counter. landot is the best catch-all check to these electric types that actually isnt...

    yo! ngl I was a bit confused when I saw that you mentioned me given I contributed nothing to this team, but I appreciate the kind shoutout :) anyway, this team follows a similar structure to one my good friend Will of Fire showed me a while back, with weav+kart+lando+melm being the centerpiece...

    Gen 8 GRASS SPAM - PEAKED #1, 1972 ft. Swampert, Bisharp

    Shiftry is pretty based for sun ngl. trash defensive typing and bulk but it has heat wave and sucker punch to let it function outside of sun as well. also, being a ghost resist is pretty good for sun teams that normally can't switch into and immediately threaten pult. 99% of the time venusaur is...

    I personally wouldn't put it as an archetype issue, but rather as Flame Body Heatran being a very specific fit for teams that appreciate the surprise factor and extra utility against physical threats and pivots, while not needing Heatran's usual defensive prowess against threats like Tapu Lele...

    If it's a trend, I suppose it is a reactionary measure to the rise of Modest Volcanions and Heatrans and, consequently, the sudden crowdedness of those Speed tiers which are above Adamant Bisharp but below Jolly. At least, that would be my reasoning for running Jolly over Adamant.
