    Did you miss the part where EQ is dealing more than 50% of Charizard's HP per hit? Roost Heals for 50%, EQ's minimal damage was 50.5% from a Specially Defensive Avalugg. Talking about reading posts... you are quick to dismiss me as not reading, while clearly not reading what I posted. I said...

    I'm just going to focus on these two here. Starting with Ice. We've established by now that Ice is not a good type defensively, nor is Grass, I'm not saying it's fair, but adding a Pokemon to the list of Scizor and Medicham that absolutely destroy Ice unless you bring Froslass in to sack it is...

    Just have to interject, Life Orb is a 30% Damage Boost, Tough Claws is 33%, but to specific moves over every move being used. It's not a massive difference but it is there. I'll let someone else handle the rest of this, I'm too tired to bring up a legitimate, cohesive argument, just felt the...

    This is what I get for posting when tired. Disregard my stupidity earlier. Edit: I do want to sincerely apologize that I overlooked something painfully obvious. I honestly don't know how half of that came to mind.

    I wasn't really trying to say M-Banette was some end-all-be-all, but I figured it was viable enough to be considered and had enough offensive power to threaten to 2HKO M-Gallade. I kind of went on rants and tangents from there whenever I saw flaws with the plan, I do that now and again. I...

    Isn't Shadow Sneak a Priority move? M-Gallade is still weak to Ghost isn't it? Pokemon that get Shadow Sneak with Ghost STAB: Banette (and we've all seen that awesome Attack Stat on M-Banette) Dusknoir Spiritomb Aegislash (forgot if Aegi got banned to Ghost or Steel) Gourgheist 252+ Atk Mega...

    Sweeping your opponent's team once checks and counters to it are weakened and dead is kind of how 99% of late-game sweepers, particularly set-up sweepers, tend to work, just saying. No, I'm not saying Mega Gallade isn't broken (also, a Fighting type who can sweep Ice? Alert the media!). But...

    Pokémon Tyrantrum

    No, the Tyrunt is a prize for entering the most recent PSS Tournament, which was international, if memory serves, if you fought in 3 or more battles you can get the Tyrunt. Correct me if I'm wrong here but I'm to lazy to go check the details, working off memory ATM.

    Just gotta get this out there: 121 Base Speed and No-Miss Hurricanes from 135 base Special Attack are nothing to sniff at, I'm not surprised people are trying it out at all. The only way it could have been better is if Game Freak had decided to give it Focus Miss, but as it is it's still solid...

    I'm sorry but Scarf Greninja? That seems incredibly unnecessary on any team, it's already at a Speed Tier which is above most other Pokemon. Greninja is also rather frail and doesn't like having to manually swap into anything that isn't a guaranteed Psychic attack, and NO team wants to have to...

    Pokémon Charizard

    "granting something a way to deal with x" is pretty much a textbook definition of 'supporting' something. It's light and indirect support, but it's support nonetheless. If Chansey or the Latis come out onto the field and your Megazard Y has no teammates who can take them down, you're in for a...

    Sad as I am to admit it, despite the fun I've had with both, in the end, Kyurem-W and Skymin, which were unbanned to give their types edges that they needed, but in the end they either solidified their win ratio against types that they were already good against, or made the balance topsy-turvy...

    Well of course Mandibuzz is going to wreck Mega Metagross, there isn't a darn thing Metagross can do against Foul Play if it's running an offensive set (which it really should be, on just about any Metagross, Mega or not), and Thunder Punch/Ice Punch is not even guaranteed to 2HKO with a +1 252...

    Mega Pidgeot will probably do well, but I worry a little about coverage still. Heat Wave+Roost/U-turn+Hurricane+HP of Choice can really only do so much, I still wish Game Freak had decided to give it Focus Blast, that would have pushed it over the top. That said, it'll probably do as stated...

    Considering Mega Mom is what made Mono Normal horrifying to go up against pre-ban, I would say no to that. Even the Standard set of PuP+EQ+Facade/Return+Crunch/Sucker Punch is also hitting quite literally everything in the game neutrally if not Super Effectively, at +2 there's almost nothing...

    Mega Aggron would be allowed on Steel, the issue by that train of logic would be Rock. And personally I don't think that'd be particularly fair unless you made a more complex rule that said you could use Megados on Mono-Dark but it MUST be holding the Mega Stone and you have to use the Mega...

    It helps Ice deal with Scizor somewhat well for one thing, Fusion Flare is a 1HKO and Scizor has very little chance to outspeed and get a Superpower off. Bullet Punch is wonderful but it's just about never a 1HKO, unless Scizor put up a Swords Dance before Kyurem swapped in, which puts all...

    Honestly, the way I see it after all this evidence is this: keep Kyurem-W and make Ice a potentially broken type compared to the others if you run the right set with the right support (it singlehandedly swept a pretty well-built Steel Mono, a Type that for most intents and purposes Ice should be...

    It's been stated time and time again that what made Deoxys-D/S broken in OU was the synergy it created with common teammates, which it doesn't really have much access to in Monotype. On a Psychic team, they really aren't all that bad. There's some give and take with "What's broken in Monotype...
