    I'd really like to talk about Aegislash's potential viability in the meta. I think people are egregiously underestimating how great having a stopgap like this Pokemon is, and that the constant threat of instant nukes such as Spectrier has caused somewhat of a disconnect in modern play. Has...

    Bug Reports v4 -- POST BUGS HERE https://www.smogon.com/forums/ps-bug-report-form/

    This isn't a "bug" per se, but it should be corrected as it is a categorical issue. As you all know, in the teambuilder, items are separated into categories (Popular Items, Items, Useless Items, etc) Several items are in the standard "Item" category when they should be in the "Useless Items"...

    1. Just something small. I believe another thing that contributed to Tapu Koko's rise was Regieleki's new toy syndrome wearing off. Regieleki is a one-trick pony while Tapu Koko has a variety of usable sets, better offensive typing, and a far better movepool. 2. Libero Cinderace and Grassy Glide...

    Essentially, Seaking's niche will come from role compression and specific utility, but I'm trying to figure out a proper EV spread.

    Absolutely, and good luck on finals my dude! I'm gonna be investigating Seaking first. I'm actually not running Seaking as an offensive mon, but as a mon that compresses the useful qualities of both Swampert and Seismitoad. Swampert has Flip Turn but not Knock Off, Seismitoad has Knock Off but...

    Feel up to a challenge my man? I'm working on trying to make the following Pokemon have a niche in OU: Seaking, Boltund, and Beartic. That collaboration post did so well, I was thinking we could keep working together to find unique niches in OU for Pokemon like this.

    Centiskorch This is getting to be a cliche at this point, but I absolutely love making Pokemon like this work in OU (and was feeling motivated after finally getting Lunatone to work). What can I say about this Pokemon? I absolutely love its design, typing, and concept. So I set out (like I've...

    Hmm... I'm trying to think of something that you team could run to handle Kartana better while keeping the niche but I'm coming up blank.

    Honestly, I think you should try Sandslash for that niche. Higher defensive function, Rapid Spin access, lacks a fire weakness.

    I actually really like this team! Honestly though, I'd swap out Excadrill. Melmetal covers the necessary offensive presence required of a slot, and you can then put in a Pokemon that can handle Kartana. (I'm actually in the middle of typing out a Centiskorch post for OU!)

    Also another problem is that Moonlight / Morning Sun have their recovery nerfed from 1/2 to 1/4 on Sand Tyranitar build teams (where Lunatone and Solrock excel), so the reliable recovery is made meaningless there. So maybe it's a more usable option when not on sand? I still need to do some...

    Don't beat yourself up, man! The set is wonderful, and I added in recovery as additional options to the post.

    Thank you so much! The EVs were the most difficult part and required a ton of testing on both musique and I's parts to find out specifically what spreads worked for their specific roles. I chose Lunatone originally because he's one of my favorite Pokemon, and I absolutely love him. It was also...

    Honestly, I feel that protect is still the best option. Having the ability to scout is more useful than reliable recovery imo.

    Solrock and Lunatone I promised this post to all of you about making Lunatone work in OU, and I'm finally delivering. After endless testing and some much-appreciated help and testing from musiquepkmn we have discovered not only a usable niche in OU for one of the coolest Pokemon ever...

    You too man! I'm making the post as we speak, it should be up within an hour, there's a lot of typing I still have to do! Also I'm really happy you dug the song! Thank you dude.
