    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [Volcarona Suspect]

    If there should be a less restrictive version of Species Clause, the one to go for should definitely be: Multiple forms of the same pokemon are allowed as long as they are tiered separately. After all, on Smogon we already have been making a distinction in saying that some forms are basically...

    Metagame The Card Game (DLC 2 bans at post #74!)

    I do think that Fighting should be immune to Thunder Wave, as, unlike other status moves, Thunder Wave specifically cannot hit Ground types.

    But, whether we like it or not, RNG is part of playing this game competitively. Critical hits, random side effects, full paralysis etc. are all RNG elements that are part of the game. If you feel that any RNG is bad for the competitiveness of the game, you should want to ban all of this. Of...

    Well, the point with OHKO moves at least is that they are extremely high risk high reward. That is, they do not see that much serious use in BSS and such, because the probability of working is quite low. However, if a OHKO move hits, you surely lose 1 mon, which can be game changing. Other...

    (Little) Things that annoy you in Pokémon

    Actually, Sentret, Ledyba and Spinarak are not common at all in Johto. In Gold and Silver, you can catch Ledyba and Spinarak in only 3 routes and Sentret in only 1 route (in Johto, also 1 in Kantho) and they are all restricted to certain times of day. In addition, they are all used only used by...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Violet - 18th Nov 2022! **OFFICIAL INFO ONLY**

    How is this scenario any different from a regular lure? To use the Volcarona vs Heatran example, how is it different from this: +1 252 SpA Volcarona Scorching Sands vs. 252 HP / 232+ SpD Heatran: 332-392 (86 - 101.5%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock In fact, it might even better for...

    Format Discussion Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    Just to clarify, I mentioned the option that teams without means to touch Shedinja should always be rejected, independently of the opponent's team. The quotes you referred to mention rejecting teams based on the opponent's team. Yes, it is totally unreasonable to reject these teams only if the...

    Format Discussion Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    I think what lucas tesch is trying to say is that any team that has zero ways to deal with Shedinja should be rejected, regardless of whether the opponent has one or not. Or maybe he isn't, but at least it would be a not unreasonable solution to his problem.

    Because there exists plenty of stuff that is uncompetitive, in the sense that all it does is add RNG, such as Sand Attack, Confuse Ray or Attract, but which nobody seriously considers banning precisely because these moves do not help often enough to actually win games by using them.

    The other way around. It doesn't say it gets the extra boosts, but it actually gets them. E.g. if you have +1attack then the game treats it as if it were +2attack. But for the purpose of stuff like Baton Pass it is still a single boost.

    Unpopular opinions

    In addition, most starter trios aren't consistent with when and if they gain a secondary type anyway (e.g. in gen 1 Bulbasaur being double typed all the way, Squirtle fully mono typed and Charmander gaining a secondary type upon reaching stage 3). Only gen 2, 6 and 8 are consistent which is a...
