    Never said anything about broken checking broken. I'm saying that Gambit is great in a way that's different from something like Roaring Moon.

    Gambit not being banned was ultimately for the best, I think the community got it right there. Are we still pretending it's a toxic sweeper that's ruining the tier and not a mon with a great defensive profile that keeps a lot of annoying mon like Dragapult in check?

    Persuasive post above, but also thanks for reminding me that Hippo exists. Literally the missing piece to so many issues I've been having on team building. It's time for Hippo to make a comeback in OU.

    Everyone is ignoring the obvious solution right in front of us: It's time to start running vital spirit Magmotar and Electivire.

    Pecharunt is supposed to be releasing tomorrow right? What kind of impact do you expect it to have in the meta?

    I have a somewhat dumb sounding mid-ground, but hear me out: What if we ban all sleep moves that aren't 100% accurate? Basically everything but Spore? The uncompetitive nature of sleep moves is that very powerful pokemon gain access to a move that turns most games into a coinflip. Boosting mons...

    Page catching, but my biggest issue with those Darkrai replays is that it relied on luck obviously, but more importantly, it relied on team compositions that were bad against Darkrai specifically. Zero speed control or TWave on any of those teams. Also some poor decision making on the part of...

    I straight up think Gouging Fire and Kyurem are broken in this tier. Kyurem is horrifying when you don't know if it'll hit you with a specs special move or start dancing. It's also way too bulky to reliably revenge kill. Meanwhile people should really look at Gouging Fire's bulk. Like, look at...

    Not only did this guy bring Normal types to OU, he also forced people to run Blissey, singlehandedly adding 2 whole normals to the tier. Probably the most hated mon to ever come to OU this gen, but damn was he fun.

    I think it emphasizes something else, but that's a whole new discussion.

    Having to keep certain pokemon healthy to deal with specific threats is the entire game, and there's far scarier sweepers right now than Gambit. On top of that, there are several checks that completely stop Gambit cold Tera or not (faster stellar mon, Dozo, ID birds, Zamazenta if you don't also...

    The Kingambit discussion makes me feel like I'm on a different planet from everyone else. Kingambit is a common mon that keeps a lot of annoying things in check, but also has so much counter play that many, many pokemon can run. Literally slap on a fighting move on any pokemon that resist its...

    This shocks me because I could have sworn I've been seeing Iron Moth often. Also they're both really good mons.

    Weavile back in OU... Weaviles may wobble, but they don't fall down.

    What is Gambit doing to Archuladon, Gouging Fire, or Iron Defence Skarmory (not to mention Keldeo when people realize that's good)? Skarm especially is really hurting Gambit right now. Everyone and their mother is running ID Skarm now, and you have to remove it before literally doing anything...

    I don't understand the comparison between Terapagos Stellar form and Mega at all. It's called a separate form, and it gets different stats, but it's really not. It's what happens when this pokemon Terastilizes, a mechanic every other mon in the tier can do. It also is locked into that type of...

    I'm really starting to doubt Darkrai as broken threat. I know the meta is insane right now, but this guy's not impressing me right now. Dark Pulse is truly too weak of a move to take advantage of its STAB, it's always missing key OHKO's even after NP... that or I'm getting insanely low rolls...

    I don't know, maybe Darkrai doesn't have what it takes. Its best stab move has 80BP, that's gotta hurt it tremendously, especially when it has to compete for slots with extremely scary mons.

    Very good unbanning choices. Darkrai and Volc I think may end up too strong, but the will of the people can't be ignored there, and RM and Gliscor deserve another shot.

    Announcement np: SV OU Suspect Process, Round 7 - Fly Me to the Moon [ Council announcement Post #2 ]

    The Kingambit comparisons make the opposite point of what a lot of people here think they're making. "Kingambit is the benchmark so this is fine" and "Kingambit is even more broken so we shouldn't be talking about this" is a bad way to look at suspect testing, and doesn't really apply when...
