    Project SV RU Victim of the Week: Week 2! IronPress Cobalion!

    Not trying to be critical here because I actually really like this set (I consider surprise counters to be generally more useful to bait a tera), but tragically Slither Wing doesn't get Stone Edge. (or any other damaging rock move outside of Rock Tera Blast) First a shaky counter - more like a...

    This time I present to you... Tricky Stars and Hearts! :sv/Jirachi: :sv/Conkeldurr: :sv/Porygon2: :sv/Enamorus-Therian: :sv/Slowbro: :sv/Rhyperior: https://pokepast.es/fc289b3e240fc40d I'm been on a big trick room kick lately and Jirachi opened up some really nice options. In my...

    Project RarelyUsed Teambuilding Competition: week 5: Salamence/Noivern (submissions open until April 12th)

    It would seem not using U-turn was a bridge too far... haha As I see Sneaky is also a fellow Stun Spore enthusiast (and I know from experience it's at least situationally good), it leaves me no choice! Voting for Sneakyplanner

    Project RarelyUsed Teambuilding Competition: week 5: Salamence/Noivern (submissions open until April 12th)

    If Ming can do it, then I guess I can too! I tried kind of hard (for me at least) to make a TR team with Slither Wing work. It didn't. So basically I gutted the TR part and added a dash of paralysis control with a bunch of priority. That also didn't work. And then I basically autolost to...

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (April Shifts, see post #191)

    First off, thank you for the Hoopa-U ban! Secondly, I know a lot of the RU player base has been begging/asking (whining maybe?) for faster council action and QB or accelerated suspects (and I had initially been somewhat part of the group), but I suddenly feel like the tier is in a much better...

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (April Shifts, see post #191)

    I'm not sure where the line on quick bans falls, but maybe some of the most notorious threats will actually be harder to get in without Slowking offering so many chances. Maybe Thundy-T and Leaves aren't quite as good now? Still very much on side in favor of :iron leaves: , :zarude: , and...

    Data Usage-Based Tier Update for March 2024

    I mean... it is gamefreak we're talking about here. I agree it's crazy, but perhaps we just need to change the way tiering works? (or at least more tiers? idk) It's not like gamefreak is going to stop. Well, from an RU perspective: Gapdos, Hippo, Kleavor, Cobalion, Thundy-T, Gengar, Zarude...

    Hi, we're matched for the RU Winter Seasonal (r4) I'll try to make most times Saturday (or Sunday) work, but need some advanced warning (out of town and some long periods of driving). I'm -6 and should be able to do things after 4pm your time.

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (April Shifts, see post #191)

    I wish I had more time to get more games in, but at this point I don't think my opinion will change much. Basically my opinions on the relative "unhealthiness" of pokemon in the tier is: :conkeldurr: > :zarude: >* :enamorus-therian: = :mamoswine: ≥** :basculegion-f: * my personal opinion on...

    That probably works for me. I might need to move it ~30 minutes, but I'll communicate any issues. Sorry I wasn't quite in the swing of things since I've just started being active again. I got my discord linked now so you can also message me there. I understand that's probably the preferred way...

    Ok, I've convinced myself to try this. If you're still taking subs, I'm in as a sub.

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (April Shifts, see post #191)

    Quick thoughts just because I didn't have as much time as I did before the holidays. I'm a simple guy and I like to mess around with silly sets on the low ladder, but for whatever my opinion is worth... Pretty closely agree with FlamingoPokeman here Ban: :hoopa-unbound: :mew: [Too good, too...

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (April Shifts, see post #191)

    With a jolly nature probably 120 or 154 evs Slightly out speeds Scarf H-zoroark, Espeon and then slush rush cetitan and SS drednaw respectively. Could go more, but yeah with barra back is probably a fools errand to assume you're beating everything

    Project SV RU: The Next Best Thing (Week 23: Cyclizar) (Votings Open)

    Well, I did actually try to use all of these and get a feel for how "useful/creative" they are. This was all with the same defensive core so obviously not every set got to shine in a way it could have with a full custom team. This team probably favored the choice specs set the most so I'm trying...

    Metagame SV RU Metagame Discussion (DLC Edition | December Shifts)

    Well, if it means anything, this metagame is the first one since 2015 that's inspired me enough to bother being active again (last post prior to this was April 2015) and before you ask... ...yes, I'm old. In general, I was most previously active in BW2 RU and off and on until ORAS. Mostly, I...
