    Expert Belt is my preferred item, actually. Knock will force progress regardless but you can utilize its extensive coverage while not being locked or taking Life chip. Being able to Knock a Protecting Glisc and then they stay in on a OHKO Triple Axel feels very very nice

    I feel like at the very least Low Kick competes more for the coverage slot than Play Rough. So many other relevant threats either are strong fairies in their own right or have coverage like Oger, while Low Kick let's you act as a Gambit lure and also chunk a lotta big heavy guys like Kyurem...

    H-Zoro really seems like a fun mon, especially with that Tera Blast tech. I could see either Nasty Plot 3 attacks or all coverage being decent but you'd basically need boots to stay hidden or removal to use an item like expert belt or a choice item. I've been wanting to experiment with it for a...

    This experiment lasted almost exactly 12 hours and I think that's pretty neat. So as to not be an epic one liner, I've been checking the viability threads and am kind of liking the metal bug a lot. Scizor definitely can't do everything, but as a breaker it sure does put a lot of nice things...

    Contentious? Perhaps. But in a 55-45 (which is literally the best statistic you have on your side, which is under 54% of unqualified players wanting SOME restriction on tera, rather than an outright ban), the 45 is quite literally not the majority, my brother in christ. I'm pretty sure I even...

    Given that even the restriction camp, which is larger than the full ban camp, is not even 50% of qualified responders (and only barely over 50% among unqualified voters), I do not think it is disingenuous or bad faith framing to say the anti tera crowd is, definitionally, a minority right now...

    Unironically yes. I've only made it to high ladder like once and then plunged back down so I'm not even saying this as someone particularly good or anything, but it isn't really a secret that action is primarily decided on and carried out by the wills of the qualified playerbase. Suspect targets...

    I haven't seen it on the smogon page for the mon, so what's the SpDef Corv set? Dunno if the standard one has any speed investment or what kind of nature it goes for.

    I should note I am not one of those Gen 4 players, but just referencing that this feels reminiscent of being OU only by people using it extensively on ladder. Meow is... nowhere near as bad as Electivire tho.

    I don't care if me when I actually hit 1750 or so some time ago going to bat for this mediocre cat is the same as Gen 4 Donphan or Electevire being OU exclusively by usage. It is simply a Fun Pokemon and I shan't give in.

    Protective Pads is nice when you have removal, as is Expert Belt, which helps you become a fair chunk more potent without life orb chip, and it's coverage is so wide that you'll be hitting Super Effective often. It feels likenit needs stabs, U Turn, Triple Axel, and Low Kick(legit so many...

    I feel this so hard. It's such a finicky Pokemon that hits a little less hard than you'd hope with stabs and is ONE point too slow but, even after trying out Weavile for a similar role, the power of Protean U-Turn and Low Kick is just so addictive.

    For what its worth, the suggestion was only if things truly are left to rot and stagnate from a democratic lack of action while scores and sentiment don't show real improvement. Probably should have made that more clear. I'm more of the mind that adaptation and metagame trend changes, even with...

    Assuming the Council has any kind of shared directional push, I'd personally vouch for them to just, uh, take it. People have talked about the Volcarona QB to death, but I feel like by and large the pushes made for specific pokemon to be more heavily looked at or outright banned have near...

    Kingambit is (mostly) irrelevant to the Tera Blast discussion. If it is made broken by Tera, ita due to type flipping, not a move used on less than 5% of Gambits at 1695 and 18whatever ladder. Kill the Match-Up Moth

    I would imagine its because Tera Blast is effectively an auto include while you have a few fire moves to choose from. Fiery Dance is prooobably best, but Flamethrower shows up often enough to skew things away from Dance alone.

    This is a so true oomfie moment. I have been loving the utility and role compression it adds while still threatening mons with a ton of chip

    While not the same, it feels sort of like an exaggerated Dragapult, where better coverage and matchups in the current meta generally lends a lower attacking stat to be preferred. As stated, Grass Knot covers Tusk and Dozo very nicely, and it can similarly have its utility in rocking vs pult's...
