  1. Gen 3 [$500 USD Prize Pool] ADV ZU Open: Gold Rush - Signups

    I really liked the last ADV invitational and ZU for ADV sounds amusing. I’d like to enter.
  2. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    It's a modification. Do you know what that word means? The simulator is not an emulator of the current version of the game. It includes tools not available to players of the cartridge version. Just because the degree of modification isn't as drastic as something a sleep clause does not...
  3. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    To keep it simple: separate tournament and community wide banlists. Because this is an unofficial simulator based on community engagement, then the only consistent rule is community rule. If the community wants to ban something, there can be surveys and suspects, and if tournament players and...
  4. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    So because you can't respond to my arguments, you cry that I should leave? No, I won't. I'll continue to play and enjoy singles as much as I can within reason. I'm too old to dedicate time to prepping for VGC or BSS. I actually did that when I was younger besides playing smogon. I'm not heated...

    So you agree Showdown modifies the game in a way that cannot be replicated in cartridge, right?
  6. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    "if something is X then it's ban is justified because it is X". Nice circular logic. Care to explain what "uncompetitive" means? Competition is two (or more) parties with roughly the same capabilities attempting to obtain victory by rendering their opposition incapable of acting against them and...
  7. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    There's so much wrong, yet all you could manage to respond with was an insult, and nitpicking about details concerning cartridge mechanics. Showdown is a violation of cartridge by design, because you can pick and choose and manipulate your pokemon in ways that aren't possible in cartridge. As...
  8. Metagame SV OU Metagame Discussion v4 [OLT HYPE]

    Hi I would like to share my thoughts about the sleep move ban. - This is a terrible ban, and it was done in a terrible manner with zero consistent logic. A few players deciding on a whole mechanic is wholly wrong. The ban gained traction based on results from a risky Darkrai set, and a niche...
  9. Metagame Fortemons

    I see, thanks for the explanation. That actually makes a lot of sense. I didn't consider that the lack of power on heat crash might bungle things up. Guess I have to run flare blitz. It's not a terribly impressive set anyway. It mostly relies on mindgames. That second replay was really funny...
  10. Metagame Fortemons

    Hi, not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but I had a match recently, and I hit a Ribombee (presumably with Giga Drain in the item slot) with Heat Crash with my Gouging Flame (which had temper flare in the item slot) and for some reason the move did absolutely nothing. Is this a known...
  11. [$1200 Ladder Tour] Freedom Cup - 6v6 But with 3v3 rules

    Forum name: LoDart210 Cycle 1 Alt: FLT231 LoDart Does my alt for Cycle 1 contain my forum name or a very similar variation/abbreviation of it as required by the rules?: yes
  12. Resource National Dex OU Simple Questions, Simple Answers

    Hi, quick question about terrain effects in natdex: does electric terrain still prevent rest from activating or are only the latest gen effects of electric terrain being implemented?

    Thanks so much man!

    Hey man I saw your post on the viability thread where you mentioned a really cool mixed infernape set. Could you please give me the details of the set? I like infernape and mixing up my selection of ou mons so I'd really appreciate it!
  15. Other ORAS OU Viability Ranking Thread V2 - Check Post #2500 PG. 100

    I absolutelt agree with everything you said. However in my experience with AV tangrowth ( I used it a LOT in XY) I've noticed that it actually doesn't fare that well against set-up sweepers, particularly dragons, particularly Chomp and Xzard. Both are faster (duh) and threaten with outrage...

    I stubbornly played sun back in BW, where weather was king, refusing to bow down to the fact that sun was the weakest weather. In fact, the challenge of playing sun against rain and sand was incredibly fun for me in Gen V. But I digress. Can we stop bringing up ninetales as a sun setter or...
  17. Pokémon Tyrantrum

    As a sweeper that's kind if disappointing. I suppose he would do better to go CB instead. It's too unreliably to count on setting up two dragon dances with his special defense and the plethora of mons that can easily dispatch of him. Then again, with so few things being able to handle head...
  18. Pokémon Tyrantrum

    There's a lot of fighters in UU that may give it trouble I don't want to get too optimistic (I was really sad when it didn't get an OU analysis back in the day) I think adamant RP with LO jolly DD with LO will give it flexibility in exchange for immediate raw power

    I tend to play more offensive, so I'm looking forward to bring back char y on a team. Time to start teambuilding
  20. Pokémon Tyrantrum

    On the viability thread, there's a dhaky consensus that the CB set will be the best set tyrantrum can use in OU. I was wondering though, what notable threats get outsped by TTrum at +1 jolly/adamant? If it turns out that it can at least outspeed base 110's then maybe a rock head life orb set...
