    Yeah Johtoking in theory has a better typing but the problem is that there really aren't that many other great fairy resists, as well as Johtoking being weak to important attacks GKing wants to sponge like Kyu freeze dry, Raging bolt electric attacks, Val moonblasts. Johtoking can do better...

    I'm not set on my opinion on Darkrai; right now I'm leaning towards a ban, but I'm not set. Despite this, I really dislike a lot of the arguments used for the DNB side that have shown up on this thread. A lot of them fall into similar traps of fearmongering about what the meta will look like...

    This is just not true. As someone who has built around darkrai on balance a lot, it's by far better into fatter structures then into offensive stuff. It's actually unreliable into Waterpon because of tera and its role for rkilling SD scor can be taken by other mons with ice coverage like...

    Finchinator or any council member, I was wondering if council is looking into a suspect of Darkrai/Kyurem right now given their support. I think suspecting would be a good move forward. I've seen calls to hold off from players who want to see the metagame adapt, and as sympathetic as I am to...

    I switched tinkaton for TIng lu and made Gliscor physically defensive: https://pokepast.es/33cc4e62af3aaa72 Does this help? More options are fighting cvg on gholdengo and Grasspon.

    This is true, however I think your claim lacks context; sure, gyarados can flinch with waterfall, but no one will look at that as being problematic because Gyarados sucks. However, if a mon is already being seen as pretty problematic like darkrai is (and not weavile - also note that icicle...

    Yes crazy that the mon that can similarly abuse that mechanic with very high speed and its stab to generate free turns is potentially pushed over the edge because of that mechanic.

    Something I want to highlight is the discourse around bans and wellspring in particular being really flawed. A very common retort to wellspring being broken is that “yeah it's very strong, but tbh it's what's saving the tier from alo hell!!” Want to preface this by saying that I have no hate to...

    Survey opinions: Enjoyment: 5 Competitive: 4 Too much cheese. Offense centric meta can be okay but to be honest there's just too much bullshit right now and I don't think its conducive to a healthy meta. I like SV and it has cool stuff there but I think there's also a lot of silliness right...

    Was ogerpon-teal voted on? I feel like its strength on balance could warrant a rise.

    I don't know if this is true in regards to grasspon; Grasspon's difference with waterpon isn't in splashability, as I'd argue grasspon fits on a lot of teams that waterpon can't fit on thanks to its tera and being able to run boots. As well, I've been going over my thoughts on the metagame in...

    Is there an option to disable custom sets being uploaded on the enemy team? I find a lot of the sets I make end up getting imported onto the enemy team and throwing me off in the calc when really there's no reason for my sets to be there, especially if I'm creating them for niche reasons.

    Yeah boots meow struggles as a grass type because of how threatening Darkrai is for balance, and just missing that speed tier is awful for it. It also competes with Grasspon as a knock turn pivot, who coincidentally can tera into having a 525 speed tier. And then there's weavile, darkrai...
