    Let's Play! Guardian Signs: Wireless missions done solo

    Well it seems you have a bit of backlog (since you mentioned using Blaziken to try and farm Tangrowth slate) so I'm not exactly sure where you're at for the moment, but I'm sure you'd already know by now how much of an godsend Piplup is at the Fire Temple. You can pretty much just pour your AP...

    Expanded Tier List - What If?

    Speaking of Hoenn mons that would really like to be available earlier... In Route 111 (the route north of Mauville City), there is a small pond next to the Winstrate house. The Old Rod would yield you the usual Magikarp as well as criminally underleveled Goldeens (levels 5-10 in RSE, level 5...

    SV OU Peaked Rank #2 (2050 ELO) - Probopass HO

    While I do understand this reasoning, I have to wonder if Alolan Golem wouldn't be a viable alternative as well. 1) It has an easier time vs Kingambit since it takes even less damage from Kingambit than Probopass does with similar investment (albeit only ~1-2% less) and won't insta-die to Low...

    NU Thundurus

    I was waiting until tier shifts to see if there are any meta changes, so I guess I can say my piece now. [SET] name: Nasty Plot move 1: Nasty Plot move 2: Thunderbolt move 3: Focus Blast / Grass Knot move 4: Flash Cannon / Psychic item: Heavy-Duty Boots / Life Orb ability: Prankster nature...

    Expanded Tier List - What If?

    I know the exact mission you're referring to; the Magnezone mission is absolute hell to play through on solo, and if the mission spawns Claydols instead of Bronzongs which you can dodge, it's downright impossible. FUCK this mission. Edit: It is actually possible to S Rank Magnezone, but you'd...

    Expanded Tier List - What If?

    As someone who's contributed much with the RSE in-game tiering lists, this statement is kind of misleading. In-game doesn't really use "stalling strategies" much at all; it is usually more efficient to just spam X items + ~1 Hyper Potion to sweep an opponent instead of relying on passive damage...

    Metagame NP: Stage 10 - I Must Apologise (post #76 NU Survey)

    Lycanroc-Dusk @ Choice Band / Life Orb Ability: Tough Claws Tera Type: Fighting / Dark EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Accelerock - Stone Edge - Close Combat - Crunch I'm assuming this is the LycanDusk set we've come to know and fear; just really dangerous and powerful attacks...

    Metagame NP: Stage 8 - Coming Down (Inteleon & Snorlax Banned)

    Ambipom @ Life Orb Ability: Technician Tera Type: Normal EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Fake Out - Triple Axel - Low Kick - Knock Off / U-turn So Ambipom is infamous for being a Pokemon not worthy of respect due to both not being a specialized revenge killer...

    Have you ever been wrong before? So there's no denying that between the two, Avalugg is still undoubtedly better than Hisuian Avalugg, and Hisuian Avalugg doesn't really have much business going the 'dedicated holepuncher' route despite the coverage it has. So, much like I did with Jumpluff, I...

    So back with Jumpluff: Dual Screen as expected is not enough for me to rank it, as I've said so earlier. Swords Dance Jumpluff is serviceable but pretty matchup fishy, even more so than Vivillon, and the inability to wield Heavy-Duty Boots noticeably hurts as well. That said, I've noticed a...

    So I was looking through the list of available Dual Screen users in the format, and Jumpluff stood out to me. It's fast enough for Dual Screens and has both Sleep Powder and Memento to deny Defog and facilitate setup sweepers. While the other potential Screeners like Froslass, Raichu, and...

    NU Double Dance Farigiraf [QC: 2/2] [GP: 1/1]

    [OVERVIEW] Farigiraf is one of the most threatening Stored Power users in the tier. It has more durability than Veluza and can boost Speed unlike Mesprit and Blissey, giving it more flexibility in how it approaches a sweep. Farigiraf's Cud Chew can grant it unique setup opportunities, as Sitrus...

    Wait, how exactly does Hisuian Avalugg even achieve this? H-Avalugg is so slow that you need Jolly to outrun even 0 Spe Sanda, but then you won't come anywhere close to OHKOing; even Adamant Choice Band doesn't reliably OHKO to begin with. 252+ Atk Choice Band Strong Jaw Avalugg-Hisui Ice Fang...

    These are just my preliminary thoughts on the new drops so far: S- or A+ This monster is immediately meta-defining; teams that are more reliant on mons like Jolteon, Hisuian Sneasel (especially Scarf), and Scarf Rotom will find themselves especially more susceptible to getting their clocks...

    Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Update on Post #5186]

    Considering Genesect would be losing access to its Gen 5-exclusive moves like Extreme Speed, Shift Gear, and Rock Polish, this may well be Genesect's worst Gen yet. ------------------ I haven't really seen any Dire Claw mention for the past ~10 pages, and I think it's because people realize...
