    I think people forget Zarude also hits really hard. I haven’t used it much recently but straight up offensive Zarude with SD / Knock / Trailblaze / Close Combat with tera fighting is a pretty solid set in my experience, outspeeding Deoxys-S after a Trailblaze. Its knock off is the same strength...

    I know this isn't actually a good reason to ban something, but something interesting about a Tera Blast ban is it could allow the extremely underutilized mechanic where moves under 60 BP are boosted to 60 when terastallized to actually become relevant in very specific situations, which would be...

    CAP 34 - Part 5 - Defining Moves 2

    Moves like Lava Plume are better suited to Pokemon that can come in and out repeatedly throughout the game and fish for procs, which is unlikely to work for us as a mon that runs a consumable item and therefore doesn't run boots. I do think we need to be careful with the strongest coverage moves...

    CAP 34 - Part 5 - Defining Moves 2

    Make it optional. Dropping Clangorous allows us to make a frail, attacking-move-as-setup, priority immune, balls to the wall offensive monster, which is a way more honest expression of the choices we've made thus far than Clangorous Soul would ever allow in my opinion. At least give people the...

    CAP 34 - Part 5 - Defining Moves 2

    First, I want to acknowledge that of course, priority blocking works well with Clangorous Soul. Any speed boosting mon would kill for a priority immunity in this metagame. But I actually want to make the argument that our ability has a lot of synergy with a soulless build too. The ability to...

    CAP 34 - Part 3 - Threats Discussion

    To add to this, I'd like to talk for a minute about one of our defining moves, Clangorous Soul. Something to consider is that this move makes switching into literally anything a pretty risky prospect. You come out even in terms of effective bulk when you use Clangorous Soul, but only if you're...

    CAP 34 - Part 3 - Typing Discussion

    I know it might be too late to really be considered, but I wanted to suggest one other typing, Grass/Electric. It has some of the benefits of Water/Electric (electric STAB for mons like book, secondary stab that hits grounds, immunity to para, water resist), but it's more resilient to common...

    CAP 34 - Part 3 - Typing Discussion

    Gonna talk about a couple typings that are cool. Grass/Psychic: OK so, I'm not fully on the "psychic everything" train, but I think this typing is pretty neat here for a number of reasons. While this typing has severe weaknesses as a whole and would typically be regarded as trash, I think it's...

    CAP 34 - Part 3 - Typing Discussion

    I think resistance to common strong priority is a very helpful trait here. We're likely building a sweeper / cleaner, and most of the likely routes for us involve high natural speed or boosting our speed in some way. This metagame is full of users of strong priority moves, perhaps more than any...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [Volcarona Suspect]

    I’ve used this set too right when the mon was released. I ended up running a little bulk on it because future sight not dealing immediate damage means you’re often gonna tank a hit. And then after a while I found myself wondering why I wasn’t running glowking. But I think it has some merit on...

    CAP 34 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    1. Throat Spray strongly implies special sweeper. Single-use items generally imply offensive roles, and ones that boost an offensive stat even more so. Maybe this mon can have some kind of mid-game breaking role (maybe there's even a way to whittle things down early game before activating your...
