    Slither wing is cool as fuck, and heavily underrated as a breaker. Excellent write up!

    Would it be correct to assume that rest would not be touched, as its version of the sleep status is mechanically different from other forms of sleep? (I.e. it’s self afflicted, and it always has 3 sleep turns, therefore not being RNG based in any way) I'm less familiar with modern BW OU, so I...

    I don’t think it’s that bad, considering that hearthflame basically got a tailor made counter introduced, as well as wellspring falling off hard since the introduction of the dlc. Of all the possible Uber drops on the table, this is the only one I would say Warrants a suspect test (not a drop!)

    idk man, every poison move inflicting confuse on a defensive Pokémon sounds hellish to face. It may not be OU material, but I have a feeling it’s gonna be incredibly obnoxious on stall

    Tera seller chain chomp seems like it would be pretty good as a breaker, similar to the flagon set that popped up earlier. Doing big damage to a couple threats to open up a sweep is very good in this meta

    He’s saying that we shouldn’t be so adverse to test Ubers in OU, as it is simply the ban list for OU. Ubers is not a usage based tier, so things don’t drop out organically, the have to be let free by the OU council, which leads to this weird issue with Pokémon like darkrai and deoxys-d (Ubers...

    as a darkrai advocate, please no. Flutter manes typing and speed is already far superior to darkrai, and it has an ability that is useful in every single match. The power difference is quite significant

    In reality, ignoring the whole hazard thing, Ghold is just a phenomenal glue mon. It fits on nearly every team style, has great bulk plus recovery, and isn’t passive at all. It’d be an excellent Pokémon in OU if it didn’t have good as gold.

    That’s fair, getting locked into a fire move is way better than a dragon move, especially since the only real fire answers are heatran, walking wake, and opposing gouging flame. This isn’t even that bad if sun is up: 252+ Atk Choice Band Tera Fire Gouging Fire Raging Fury vs. 0 HP / 0 Def...

    Kyurem not only has much better better bulk and a way better typing than hoopa-u, but also has a much more usable base 95 speed, which makes is much harder to deal with for many teams. edit lmao sniped

    So far my favorite meta arc is “OMGZ GUYS DARKRAI IS SUPER BROKEN, ITS GONNA SNAP OU OVER ITS KNEE WITH ITS SHEER POWER” directly into “this Pokémon is mid AF”. Lol. Lmao even

    It’s actually not even good in Ubers UU. Lt ranks quite a bit below both iron valiant and volcarona lmao

    I did not say they’re forced to run other items. I said that they have an optimal item they want to run. That’s a very different thing. HDB did not exist for the first 3 generations Volc existed and it did just fine in OU. HDB is just the perfect item for it. Booster energy is the best item on...

    If you miss a hypnosis (a move you’d basically only use to get an upper hand on checks) these are moves you’re likely to get hit by. These all put darkrai in danger of priority and speed control mons KOing it. Covering your ears and calling people stupid when they disagree with you is childish...

    That’s a totally fair comparison. I think what makes it feel a little different to me is the opportunity cost for items on darkrai is generally higher than on Volc and Valiant. Volc is always running HDB on basically every set. The only real choice you make when building with it is what Tera you...
