    VGC Rocks fall, everyone dies (1700+ on Battle Spot)

    Hello, Smogon! This is a team that I made shortly after Intimidate Incineroar became legal, and for the most part it built itself. It's centered around setting up Dragon Dance Tyranitar while protecting and supporting it with Incineroar, Amoonguss, and Zapdos. Choice Specs Tapu Fini synergizes...

    VGC Song of Despair (Perish Trap, 1600 and climing on Battle Spot)

    Perish Trap is a playstyle that gets a lot of flack in VGC. Because the strategy is fundamentally based on switching, positioning, and ultimately stalling out the Perish Count turns, many people find it infuriating to play against. That being said, it has also intrigued me for a long time. Since...

    VGC 18 Breloom

    [OVERVIEW] * Breloom's viability has sharply decreased since VGC 2015. * Electric and Misty Terrain both block Spore, and Breloom is arguably outclassed by Tapu Bulu and Kartana as a Grass-type physical attacker. * Technician is still a fantastic ability on Breloom, powering up many of its...

    Tailwind HO team

    Right, so I was holding off on posting this for awhile since I was unsure of it, but now that I've gotten above 1620 on Showdown and top cut a couple PCs with it I guess it must be decent. Like the title says, it's a Tailwind-based hyper offense team since apparently that's the only playstyle...

    Gator aid for the Johto Classic [48hrs finished]

    Hello, Smogon! I'm back with another giveaway. The Johto Classic is coming up, in which you can only use Pokemon from the first and second generations. Now, I'm quite excited about this, since a ton of my favourite Pokemon are Gen II. I've been experimenting quite a bit on Showdown, and while...

    VGC The Gentle Giant (Peaked 1609 on Showdown)

    Since the inception of VGC 2016, the top threats in the metagame have proven themselves time and time again: Kyogre, Groudon, Rayquaza, and Xerneas. Sometimes Dialga, Palkia, Ho-oh, and Yveltal join their ranks. One Pokemon, however, is practically never seen, but it has caught my attention for...

    VGC The Sun, the Moon, and the Mammoth (Peaked 1530 on Showdown)

    This is a team that I made about 4 months ago as an experiment with different archetypes. It seemed to work pretty well, so I got serious with it and tried to make it the best that it could be. I was able to ladder to 1530 on Showdown, not an amazing benchmark but vastly outshining any of my...

    A Dark-type thank you giveaway [48hrs finished]

    Hello, Wi-fi community! Since I've become active here, I've noticed something: everyone is just so kind and helpful. I've gotten help from so many people both in getting Pokemon for battle and for expanding my collection, and I feel it's about time I gave something back. And what's the best way...

    VGC Blowin' in the Wind (Tailwind HO team, 1700 and still climbing on Battle Spot)

    This is the most successful VGC team I have been able to make; I have been able to do relatively well in premier challenges with it. It is built around my favourite playstyle, being Hyper-Offense. Basically, the goal is to set up Tailwind with Suicune, and then overwhelm the opposition with a...

    Entertainment The origin of the Pokemon universe

    Let's face it: in recent issues of The Smog, the Entertainment section has become rather bland. My idea for an article is something that would help to give it some life again. It is not a humour article; rather, it is a theory on how the Pokemon universe came into being, told in the style of a...

    Lucariomaster2's Riolu giveaway [CANCELLED]

    Hello, Smogonites! I'm sure you can guess what my favourite Pokemon is by now (Spoiler alert: it's Lucario), and I will be giving away 2 boxes of its pre-evolution: 1 Physical and one Special. All were bred by me, with the help of a 6IV Ditto courtesy of the generosity of the folks over at...

    Blue metal

    This team was named for the fact that many of the members of my team are blue/purple, and/or are Steel-types. This team consists mainly of offensive Pokemon. It has worked the best out of any OU team I have created, having "peaked" at around 1220 so far (I put peaked in quotes because I don't...
