    I run 4 extra speed on my Kingambit because I speed tied with a Brute Bonnet once and I got very salty about it

    Resource SV OU Good Cores

    I was just coming here to post this core but you beat me to it! Kingambit might not want Leftovers in this case because that makes the disguise less ambiguous, yes it's the type of Pokemon where it mostly runs the same set with minor adjustments based on personal preference but still. HDB or...

    Where did the custom menu sprites for new SV Pokémon come from? I swear they weren’t there earlier today

    Hydreigon gets Nasty Plot which lets it rip through bulkier teams, switching into it safely is almost impossible until you know all four of its moves (it can’t fit everything it wants on one set unfortunately… or fortunately if you’re on the receiving end of its wrath!) Jugulis has less reliable...

    I’ve seen some discussion on here that banning the sword kitty will buff stall to be ridiculous, and even if it makes stall better it’s NOT becoming the dominant play style. Blissey and Chansey lost it all (I ran into one on ladder with no-tera Tera Blast and Shadow Ball and it made me feel very...

    Announcement np: SV OU Suspect Process, Round 1 - Oops!...I Did It Again

    I think that revealing Tera at team preview will help a lot by removing the surprise factor and I’ll rank it first if I can actually make reqs (highly doubt this) but at the same time, it only removes the surprise factor and not the brokenness. Like sure, knowing that the opposing Roaring Moon...

    I’m a politics nerd I’m sorry the fact that RCV is being used is unironically more exciting to me than the suspect itself

    I ran into someone on ladder who led with it and used this set: Garganacl @ Leftovers Ability: Purifying Salt Tera Type: Dark EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def Impish Nature - Block - Salt Cure - Recover - Stealth Rock Tera Dark + Block on turn 1 and you completely shut down lead...

    Pokémon Garganacl

    You can make a whole team with defensive Pokémon if you wanna play stall, it’s a legit archetype! Many people will hate you for it but it is 100 percent an option so go nuts

    I was running Thunder on Flutter Mane solely to deal with this dumbass but now that it's banned... what to do?

    I think you need to have used another move first, don’t quote me on this but try it out

    Pokémon Palafin

    I’m tempted to build a team with Jaw Lock primal-Mence (forgot name) so that I can lead with it when I see one of these guys on the other team just to be mean. Most players lead with Palafin so they can flip turn immediately anyway

    Metagame np: SS Ubers Stage 7 - Heroes [Zacian-Hero Banned]

    It learns close combat, so the last method is far from guaranteed... also, Gengar gets outsped so good luck with that.

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v7 (Usage Stats in post #3539)

    You can tell this guy doesn't know what they're talking about because they said "over 700" when there's 898 Pokemon right now lol In all seriousness, just because it counters one threat does not mean it works against the metagame. That's why Seismitoad fell off after Dracovish was banned; it's...

    A slightly less powerful Dracovish that outspeeds your whole team is far worse than a super strong one that only outspeeds part of it. No.

    Generally, Smogon tries to go for simple bans rather than complex ones, and targets the root of the problem to the best of their ability. We could've banned certain mons from using Dynamax, but decided to just ban the mechanic as a whole as it's far too much to deal with under most...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 10 - Royals

    This is a bit off topic, but I see your posts a lot, and while the sprites make them look pretty cool, I feel like they disrupt the reading experience a bit. Would you consider lightening up on their usage? You don’t have to stop completely, but it’s a bit annoying when every single mon is in...

    Scarf is a very common item that Zama-C can't run, which I feel you should keep in mind. You also mentioned Hawlucha. Thing about that mon, it usually runs a terrain seed, which boosts a defense stat, so it's always harder to stop than you think it will be. Granted, you'll usually use a seed...
