    Gen 6 The "Are my Pokémon IVs and Nature good?" Thread

    Got this after the painful process of catching it (seriously, who was the clownboat that thought giving Groudon Rest at Lv.45 was a good idea, but anyway.) Adamant Groudon, 31? / 27-28 / 20-22 / 31 / 31 / 31 That attack stat is sad, but would you miss any important KO's at +2 without 31 Atk?

    Resource ORAS OU Simple Questions, Simple Answers (Read the OP First!)

    I was out for a long time, only getting back into battling just now after OR/AS. Just lurking now I saw some of the new stuff (Altaria and Gallade megas really look smashing) What's the general feel of the metagame, for the lack of a better term, and what are some things I should look out for?

    Other The effectiveness of Baton Pass teams after the nerf

    The really strange thing is, in the old Baton Pass discussion thread, it was loosely established that a two-mon limit was better (see this post by Danilo among others), but the three-limit was basically arbitrary chosen. I would've rather played it safe here, but well. It is pretty alarming to...

    Bear in mind, that suspect tests are for potentially broken things, and things don't have to 6-0 teams easy to be suspect-worthy. Deo-D is a prime suspect for a lot of people because of its support potential alone, and people generally don't resort to super-niche things to negate its work...

    Surely removing the worst offenders (most of which aren't even megas lol) is a big enough meta-shift to make it more balanced, ne?

    Hypercut: Drizzleswim is pretty unfair to compare to megas, as that was worse by far. Imagine, if you will, a Pokemon that hits harder than most megas, with more speed than them, and you are allowed at least two on the team, perhaps more. And honestly, a lot of your examples aren't really that...

    Pokebank was a hypothetical meta though, like Dream World BW, and in fact was the more popular one. Uh, no we don't, we test the broken things in a more efficient pace, because not all mega evolutions are broken to that degree.

    Survey Discussing Future Tiering Policy

    Really, it all depends on whether you think an inordinate amount of unhealthy threats exist, which is a highly subjective question. A lot of people are saying, only five or six or so of the worst offenders need to be removed, to make a decent meta, in which case the current system can still...

    Survey Discussing Future Tiering Policy

    This has actually been a problem ever since Gen 4. It's just what happens, when there are more Pokemon introduced there are more threats. Functionally, Megas aren't that much different from a separate Pokemon. It's definitely not like weather, which was such a wide-sweeping thing, that it...

    Survey Discussing Future Tiering Policy

    Problem with that is that it's not all mega-evos causing this - no one can say with seriousness that say, M-Abomasnow or M-Banette are threatening, let alone broken. It's only the worst offenders that are the problem, and of those three are banned, and of the rest there are at most four (and of...

    Survey Discussing Future Tiering Policy

    Honestly, I could get behind something similar to the system in UU, perhaps in reverse as UU was initially done. I'm of the sentiment, that a balanced meta needs to be achieved as soon as possible, and the latest suspect tests is something clearly a lot of people are unsatisfied with, what with...

    Survey Discussing Future Tiering Policy

    The problem with revealing the megastone of Charizard is that it's altering the game-mechanics, which is only done as a last resort (sleep clause). imo the biggest suspects I see from that list are the Deoxyses and the genies. Deo-S and -D are easily the most abusable things in this metagame...

    Other The effectiveness of Baton Pass teams after the nerf

    From what it's worth, having talked to Denissss about his new team, his opinion seems to be that his new team is actually pretty bad. Because it's more vulnerable to offence (particularly Talonflame and suchlike) and has no real defensive core to speak of, and he only got up top because his alt...

    I've seen this kind of team work with Klefki too, who does the screens just as well thanks to priority. Of course, Klefki has no Taunt, which is a disadvantage against counter-leads, so.

    Other The effectiveness of Baton Pass teams after the nerf

    It does seem kind of appealing to "upgrade" the Baton Pass clause, and rather less reactionary. Building from the point of SoulRed12, even limiting BP to only one member might well be the best option, just to ensure that this synergy is impossible to exist, and you can only use Baton Pass as a...
