    Metagame Convergence [DLC 2 Bans]

    I would like to preface that I am not complaining about the bans, I just came to a realization as a consequence of this conversation and would like to share it. The universal rule of the OM is the following: " Pokémon gain access to the abilities and Movepools of all Pokémon that share their...

    Metagame Sharing Is Caring

    YOU MEAN LIKE THIS??? OR PERHAPS THIS??? It's worth noting that consuming the item upon switch-in is part of the bugged ladder rn, so I don't agree on quick banning Booster Energy. Priority is a huge threat to any booster team, both of the teams I posted have Indeedee because of how much of a...

    Metagame Frantic Fusions (New resources @ Post #387)

    in this replay, my opponent has the names of the base pokemon rather than the ones that they're fused with. If I had to guess, us both having Magic Bounce caused this, but it is a bug, so I'm reporting it.

    AAA Almost Any Ability - Walking Wake is banned!

    Of all the things that are new I'm legitimately surprised at the sheer lack of Good as Gold abusers. And as the worlds #1 Gholdengo fan I will not stand for this heresy. Ceruledge @ Leftovers Ability: Good as Gold Tera Type: Ghost EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD Adamant Nature - Bitter...

    Metagame Cross Evolution

    so, uh... "urshifu-rapid-strike" bypasses the character limit on PS for a nickname, so is that version of urshifu just unusable? or is there an alternative?

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    Echo Effect Metagame Premise: The last two moves of the pokemon who was in last become the last two moves of the pokemon currently in for the first turn they're in. So for example: Toxapex @ Rocky Helmet Ability: Regenerator EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpD Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Scald -...

    Metagame Max Berries: A Genetically Modified Metagame

    Ok, let's quickly touch on 2 things, both of which are prevalent in the team I used solo to reach this rank This is not ok 1. The existance of 2 pokemon on the team: Spectrier and Cinderace. Why in god's name are these two legal, others have already posted about these 2 and both of them even...

    Metagame Shared Power

    It just picks one, I believe it picks the ability activated first because it would convert the type from normal first

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    Firstly as far as names go, I think that "Base Stat Power" works nicely. A play on words on both base power and base stat while conveying that the base stat dictates the power of moves. On a much more critical note, I very much worry about the possibility of the meta coming into fruition due...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    This meta already exists, and I believe it has the same name as well. I almost love this idea. The big looming flaw about it is that the stat in question dictates the move's accuracy, which just screws a ton of pokemon out of being good in the meta. I do very much like the idea of moves above...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but this isn't the first time, and probably won't be the last time, that this idea has been submitted. It has been shot down every time with the argument along the lines of "Metagames that limit what players are able to do are usually less successful than metagames...

    Project Metagame Workshop (OM Submissions CLOSED)

    This is a cool Idea in concept, but in practice, I think it falls apart for 2 main reasons. Firstly, is the problem of abilities that proc when switching in, which is the entire gimmick of Trademarked. Allowing this is just gonna make the meta "Trademarked Lite", but with a much more limiting...
