    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [NEW TIERING SURVEY UP]

    I said I was done posting for this generation, but i just want to say thank you. Even if people like me don't want to play the tier anymore, we want to try and make it more enjoyable (objectively for everyone, although our reasoning may be selfish in nature). I haven't really stayed up to date...

    Metagame Views From The Council

    Fine. I'll edit my post and remove the Great Tusk thing. I shouldn't bother making points like that ever again anyway.

    Metagame Views From The Council

    Hi, okay so This will be my last post of the generation, only because the OU Council took the time to ask and look to administer a new wave of corrective action. But I don't think Kokoloko or anything else of that nature adequately fixes the innate issue of OU: Your statistics are not helping...

    SV UU Metagame Discussion - Teal Mask Edition

    For some reason, i thought it wouldn't recoil if something was immune. Good to know! Also, next question: I know it's Triple Axel central right now, but does Sticky Hold Eviolite Dipplin have a niche? I know it was awful Pre-DLC-2, but does a bulky switchin to Knock Off have a place in UU?

    SV UU Metagame Discussion - Teal Mask Edition

    Not 100% sure on this, but also didn't hands get the new physical electric move? So now it would have an extra base 100 stab move with no recoil? I can't really speak to whether Hands does/doesn't belong in whatever meta OU drops to UU, but that's a significant jump from the 75 on Thunderpunch...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [NEW TIERING SURVEY UP]

    Can this forum be locked for like.. the rest of the generation? xD Honestly, i feel like this just isn't a good place to be. ANYways, I'm logging off for this gen. Might chime in on surveys if I spot them in time, but yeah. See ya in Gen 10 (if we ever get there)!

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [NEW TIERING SURVEY UP]

    Just want to say that I am happy there is a new thread, and thank you to the council for all your hard work thus far this generation!!! So far, I don't really know what to say about all these new toys. I'm excited to see the intelligent discourse discussion that is guaranteed to arise in the...

    Joke Survey response: 5s on everything, unban everything, including ubers and let the tier suffer to figure it out. Real response: I'd say don't unban anything until after the inevitable post-DLC2 tera test. Don't allow anything that could possibly inhibit the tera test. You have the power to...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    So I'm not going back to read any of the past uhhhhh 46(?) pages since I last bothered posting here, but... How we doin'? Are we done with the toxic one liners that constantly plague the OU forum? And hoping that answer is "yes", has anyone been using anything innovative that's been enjoyable...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Hey so I know Sneasler is banned, but I need to understand something: Why did Sneasler invest in max speed? It only needed 164 EVs to outspeed even Scarf Pult after Unburden. Could those EVs have been better allocated into extra bulk? I know it's irrelevant for Sneasler now, but since I'm a...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Okay, so hopefully it's clear that Hawlucha is inferior to Sneasler in... most if not all ways. But with Sneasler gone, could Hawlucha find a niche partnered alongside Rillaboom? Similarly, what about :Grafaiai:? Can it be the :Sneasler: we have at home? Again, neither of these have the stats...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Sneasler Nah, I'm joking. Glad it's gone. This post is about to get long, so I'd like to chime in on "Modern OU" because... it's reflective of how every other tier of Smogon is run. They ban problematic mons in order to shape a better format. During early stages like this, there are a LOT of...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Okay, quick take on things: HECK YES!!! GO COUNCIL WOOOO!!! As a resident Bad Player, I almost hit 1500 from 1000 (yeah yeah, low elo, I know) just using the long sneasel. I probably could've gone higher, but I decided to toy with Electric Terrain (and I'm bad lol) So glad this thing is gone...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    I know that UU Idk if you just came up with this, or if it's a known thing, but that is the best description of that entire meta. A++ As for QB vs suspect vs etc, I think that DLC will (hopefully) only have one or two QBs at most before the first inevitable suspect (I'm just thinking there's...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Actually wait a minute... Has anyone experimented with Misty Surge :Weezing-Galar:? Immunity to status (no burns, paralysis, toxic, sleep, etc.) sounds kinda nice, although the Misty Seed is a SpDef boost instead of Defense. It's probably nothing, but maybe there's more to these "terrain wars"...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Having briefly toyed with the idea, the real problem at the end of the day truly is that :Pincurchin: just doesn't do anything besides set up e-terrain. It has both spikes AND toxic spikes, but it's slow, doesn't have Volt Switch (why not????), and therefore the best ways to swtich it out are to...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    Just a blurb about :Sneasler: and 4MSS. 4MSS is a thing on certain mons, but when i was first starting, it took me a while to understand the difference between 4MSS and "3 moves and a coverage option of your choice." Sometimes, you can figure out the "most likely" option based on the rest of...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    I'll (try) (EDIT: and fail) to keep this brief: Enjoyable - 6. :Sneasler: is so dumb. I'm actually having some fun spamming borderline mindless low-ladder grassy terrain unburden while actively working on other things. I'm literally barely paying attention clicking pivot moves to chip and set up...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    You're absolutely correct, I have never once used Kingambit against Dragonite, nor vice versa. I didn't realize that Sucker Punch was only Priority speed 1 (I just checked, I thought it was tied with Espeed at priority 2). So my point there is wrong. I also don't have anywhere near enough...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v3

    I'll bite: Broken checks broken is the mantra of OU. Therefore, all pokemon in OU are inherently broken, and don't belong in any tier other than OU. No more drops to UU ever again, #LockUpOU. Memes aside, :Dragonite: is strong. We all know this. I don't think this is any sort of outcry. I think...
