    100% agree with this. The threat of Flame Body burns deters a lot of top Physical Pokemon from committing to attacks. Going Tera Grass makes Moltres one of the more unique checks to Wogerpon. With that said, I think Moltres should really only rise to B instead of B+. Its defensive profile is...

    Moltres SpikeStack (original!) :moltres: :clodsire: :clefable: :dragapult: :weavile: :primarina: https://pokepast.es/5e3d15e93adeb3e7 I think this week, we're not going to see too much originality in maximizing Moltres' potential. One of its most effective sets is its defensive Flame Body...

    :volcarona: :weavile: :great tusk: :slowking-galar: :skarmory: :dragapult: https://pokepast.es/edfe5fb878c289d2 Somewhat boilerplate Volcarona SpikeStack I threw together based on bulky Volc's analysis. Great Tusk + Skarmory + Glowking provides a decent backbone. Weavile is a good wallbreaking...

    Project SV OU Teambuilding Competition (Indigo Disk Edition) Cycle 12: Moltres!

    I'm voting B mostly because the Psych Up claims in Team A sound too good to be true. First, the reverse sweep claim after a Psych Up sounds strangely optimistic when two of the moves drop SpAtk or Atk + Def. Second, the comment about Psyching Up CM or QD seems interesting since it copying a +1...

    Am I allowed to update my team even after submission before the deadline? I have been tinkering with the team, and I think I have a somewhat better version of what I submitted.

    I agree that Crown should move up, but just to B. I like using it on Screens teams that have multiple Drsgon sweepers Like Gouging Fire, Raging Neck, and Roaring Moon. Latias fills a similar role, but Iron Crown has been more synergistic when it comes to setting up, breaking Unaware walls, and...

    Metagame Views From The Council

    For starters, I am in agreement that the metagame needs some bans to improve both the competitiveness and enjoyment of SV OU. On one hand, DLC2 has provided so many new Pokemon to build with to the point where teambuilding diversity is at the highest it's been this generation; on the other, the...

    Alternatively: P(all 10 hits of Pop Bomb doesn't flinch) = (1 - 0.1)^10 = 34.868% P(at least 1 of the hits trigger Flinch) = 1 - P(all 10 hits of Pop Bomb doesn't flinch) = 65.132% Could've saved you a lot of paper. With that said, if people were curious as to what the expected Base Power...

    Technician-boosted Mach Punch and Bullet Seed allows it to threaten a lot of meta Pkmn (Roaring Moon, Dondozo, etc.), especially faster offensive threats. Spore usually has minimal effect with regards to how effective Breloom is at Revenge Killing and Breaking

    I think Amoonguss' typing still gives its some recourse as a Bulky Grass type. Even if it doesn't run Spore, it can still run other status like Stun Spore, which can be really useful against certain offense matchups. With that said, that benefit might not outweigh the loss of Spore, so maybe a...

    I'm not sure which one it actually is, but I think discussion on Sleep / Darkrai has reached its meaningful conclusion in this thread. Council opened "Views from the Council" regarding Sleep, and any and all points that non-badged users could make have already been made there. As a thread...

    IMO, the line that needs to be drawn should be around what RNG causes significant lack of competitiveness even when information is symmetrical between two players. For Scald, Discharge, and that general family of moves, both players are aware of the Pokemon most likely to carry those moves and...

    To echo a sentiment that was expressed in an older Policy Review thread, the "we should be cart accurate" argument is a bit misleading. For example, Showdown's HP bars historically have not been cart accurate (see Zarel's thread and Stratos' thread on the topic here). To summarize, Showdown does...

    If we hypothetically Sleep moves, would that include Rest, which would be self-induced?
