    Tilt happens to even the absolute best and most accomplished players, that is true. One thing you can do is not to tie your self worth to your rankings. Pinkacross mentioned it in his vid too. We all improve at different rates. Whether you have a shiny badge or not shouldn't be an indicator or...

    One thing that makes games fun for me is, if I constantly improve as a player. Used to be a random 1700 shitter. I had a poor mentality whenever I lost, either lashing out or having a defeatist attitude like "why should I even bother with this game if I can't get any better". I had those...

    Agree with this post. Gambit, right now, has it pretty hard. This is coming from somebody that used to hate this mons presence. It is still a strong win-condition and a little oppressive on the builder but there is more freedom about how to deal with this mon when it was earlier. To add to...

    -> deserves a spot on this list. I would personally give her a higer rank then Torkoal but I know a lot of people here wouldn't be okay with that. The reason why Torkoal was usually regarded as higher then Nintales is because of the bulk and the small support roles he can fill in like rapid...

    I dont neccessarily agree that Moon needs to be banned but this replay here isn't really telling of anything. pdt was already in a heavy disadvantagous position and the opponent still had 6 mons to work with, with 5- being healthy. You could beat any mon with resources like that. The argument...

    I feel pretty similarly to you but also weirdly disagree with you in that I am not sure if I wanna see Moon go but completely understand why he feels so oppressive to so many people. Moon can even put in work when it feels like he doesn't sweep teams outright. Knock itself is such a brainless...

    I say Tusk falling off a bit is actually a good sign for this meta. It is still a great mon now but there was a time where Tusk was almost mandatory to have on the team. The anti hazard mon HAD to deal not only with hazards but with dengo as well in order not to get overwhelmed. It was also the...

    Can confirm. Took a huge break since the GF suspect. Thought that I was gonna get worse for sure but the mentality reset is really refreshing and causes my plays to be much more "clearer", if that makes sense. I highly recommend taking a break . Competitive Pokemon is very much a mentality...

    I am just gonna put this out here, CTC had absolutely no impact on my change of heart. I despise some of the top players mentality, "lol you can't deal with it because you are a bad player" shtick and them locking down on you if you don't agree. I know some of them(not all. alot of them seem...

    Great Stallbreaker, yeah. Was your Hoopa choiced? I like using mixed Hoopa with boots but choiced is unwallable. I was the Ursaluna Veil player. Sorry that I didn't respond to your hf msg, I had opponents ignored in my settings which I forgot to turn off. Just wanted to say gg.

    I have to agree with the above posters. I will mainly talk about the breaking swipe set since this is the moveset that seems to cause the most grievances. I was initially one of the people thinking that GF breaking Swipe set was broken. "If it can set up on Don and Glis, what can't it set up...

    Honestly, respect for having the patience to sit through that. I know this isn't even a long stall game considering that there are games out there that can last 100s or 200 turns even, if both players are any good and the MU isn't loopsided. Also massive respect to stall players for their...
