    Project RU Lure That Threat! Week 10: Roserade (Sub)

    I realize this thread is kind of dead (sad to see it go, but I guess it was inevitable with the generation shift) but reading this again and looking at that 200% HP kill gave me pause. Other than getting 81.6 - 96% vs. goli instead of just forcing emergency exit (or possibly threatening a free...

    ehh, this is kind of necrobumping, so sorry for that, but screw it: after winning my first ever random chat tournament game after a handful of tries (on the last day of gen 7, no less), I won another and ended up in the finals vs. Ajna of all people. Decided to go for broke and pull out the...

    Katy That's a neat general fighting-type lure.

    Finally got a nice replay where tsareena was able to strut her stuff with this exact team: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ru-969953504 Honestly webs wasn't even necessary here since it was full stall, but you get the idea. Shows off how hard this build hits -- once I had the mandibuzz...

    Hmm, those options sound okay. Given how often I've missed 2 stone edges in a row on non-sash galv (I swear life orb doubles as a brightpowder) 56% chance of success doesn't sound fantastic, but it certainly could be worse. I'm less optimistic about my matchup with webs on both sides given how...

    Yeah, I tried out mismag and just found myself with no answer to opposing webs teams due to no removal/deterrent. More conventional webs teams can just send out galvantula and more or less win. That's fixable in other slots, obviously, but I think it's currently giving up too much to put a...

    Awesome, thanks for trying it out! Been loving your posts on other RU RMTs so was really looking forward to your response here. Thanks as well for the more general thoughts on sticky web in general -- I've thought about doing a similar writeup and injected some of that into my RMT, but have a...

    Been playing PS without registering on the forums for a year or two now; figured I'd get things started off by exposing the team I've been refining off and on for most of that time. It all started a while ago: I was working on a frankly stupid PU team and looking for some Z-move that would...
