    Access to Flip Turn basically since now it can pivot but I agree it def should be suspected not quickbanned. Also quickban Bax, a decent snow setter+Scale Shot has pushed it over the edge. For all those who think Alolan Ninetales or Aurora Veil is the issue, I’d argue that Bax was near broken...

    I quite like Breloom as an anti-Samurott-H lead. Life Orb Mach Punch is a guaranteed OHKO, or you can use Bullet Seed to KO through Sash. Alternatively just predict the switch and Spore.

    Sure, this is a fair criticism, but my main argument was that Volc has to Tera basically every match because every decent team will carry one of these counters. A mon that eats your Tera is a pretty big downside imo. Also: +1 252 SpA Tera Ground Volcarona Tera Blast vs. 248 HP / 252+ SpD Unaware...

    Not surprised by Urshifu leaving but I’m shocked the council went ahead with banning Volc. Even reading through the reasoning this decision doesn’t make much sense to me. Yes, the mon has always been a horrible match-up fishing monstrosity, but even with the introduction of Tera there are...

    ik this is an older post but in light of this statement: which I don’t think is accurate, I’d like to ask this. If Tera is such a fundamentally broken mechanic that it requires a ban, surely games in which Tera isn’t a factor shouldn’t exist? I don’t think this is a one off either, ive played...

    Iron Hands has no recover so can only switch in once, maybe twice if you’re running Drain Punch. Resttalk Dozo does get 2HKOed if Pao is adamant, and is prone to getting caught asleep and chipped down. The Tauros don’t have recovery, and neither of them check much outside of Pao and Kingambit...

    I am fully aware of this, although I didn’t explicitly mention this in my post. The assumption is that Great Tusk is your opponent’s primary Cinderace switch in, and given you are most likely forcing out whatever you come in on, it’s fairly safe to click Acrobatics straight away. Of course, if...

    Oh yeah, this is the set I was messing around with a few days ago when I was just fed up of losing to Garganacl. I think I ran a bit less speed and additional bulk so you could set up more effectively on Torkoal and Amoonguss. I paired it with this wild Dondozo-trapper Lumineon meme since...

    Why is Iron Jugulis in B-? I don’t think I’ve ever seen this thing do anything after the first day. Coverage is nice and all, but I’m legitimately curious as to why this thing is above Scovillian and Masquerain, which both have actual niches in the meta. Jugulis, imo, does not.

    Fair enough, but Specs Valiant is pretty rare and easily exploited, and even CM on the switch doesn’t beat Sylveon: 0 SpA Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice vs. +1 0 HP / 0 SpD Iron Valiant: 254-302 (87.8 - 104.4%) -- 25% chance to OHKO Valiant dies if it’s at all chipped. Besides, you’re not using...
