    Why does Will-o-Wisp Gengar not run Hex? Why are Substitute and Hex not moves Gengar ever has in randbats, when Sub/Wisp/Hex is one of its main sets?

    I'm ultimately indifferent to altering Hemo's Sp. Attack stat. While yes it may be confusing to new players, being honest the CAP process as a whole is confusing and has pretty high barriers of entry (the damage calculator and smogon pages often being outdated, the ladder not being the best way...

    Final Submission -19 Sp. Def New stats: 90 / 96 / 87 / 99 / 70 / 55 (497) Most of the Pokémon that currently check Hemogoblin (Venomicon, Galarian Slowking, Heatran) are special attackers, so this package grants them much more potency against it. Specifically, 70 Sp. Def guarantees that...

    CAP 32 - Part 19 - Post Play Lookback 2

    I'm in the camp that we don't really need to touch movepool. As already mentioned we solved the (non) issue of Hemogoblin's convoluted toolkit, and removing anything like Bitter Blade, Bulk Up, or Knock Off feels largely unnecessary and would impact its set more than what is needed. If we had to...

    Cute Charm/Own Tempo/Friend Guard -> Unnerve/Own Tempo/Huge Power -> Intimidate/Own Tempo/Pixilate The abilities are designed to signify the transition from cute to cool.

    CAP 32 - Part 18 - Post Play Lookback 1

    I agree with everyone's sentiment that while successful as a "bang average" pokemon, the entire process lacked focus. The winning stat spread arguably being flavor first gave us very little direction. Our assigned role was pivot, yet we ended up with Clefable stats + an attack stat + a...

    Unnerve works on two levels; Hemogoblin is unnerving to look at, and since it's just a heart it has quite literally been un-nerved
