    What set do people run for defensive kommo-o? I thought it was ranked primarily for the z move and belly drum sets.

    If you drop the special attack EVs 8 points and move those into speed, you'll outspeed ash gren after a boost. Unless those 8 EVs contribute to some OHKO on something I'm missing, you may as well. Lopunny is totally out of reach for non speed boosting nature kommo-o, however. Great set! Edit: I...

    Is there a way to search the showdown teambuilder for pokemon based on what they resist? I remember somebody did that in the SM creative and underrated sets thread to make a non mega camerupt set to stop magearna and koko, but I can't recall the finer points. Thanks in advance.

    Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    I know it's not ranked, but I've been having a lot of fun with DD kommo-o + naganadel. Kommo-o is the biggest fairy bait in the known universe, and naganadel sets up all over fairies not named lele, who isn't loving all the heatrans running around. Coincidentally, naganadel is one of the best...

    Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    fuck, you beat me to the punch I think we're looking at kommo-o wrong here. The z move, while objectively one of the best in the game (nuke and +1 to everything), might actually be worse for kommo-o than straight up dd. The thing has a solid physical movepool now. Close combat is the real...

    Hey, so I entered a casual monotype tournament and picked grass. The problem is that another guy got to reserve a mega before I could, and he picked venu for poison, so I picked sceptile since my other option was abomasnow. Any advice on building a mono grass team without mega venu? Should also...

    Metagame Mega Evolution in Sun & Moon

    They're similar on paper but play very differently. Scept trades long term sweeping potential and defog/web discouraging for fantastic speed, a better movepool, and more immediate power, which lets it OHKO some things like koko. Most of the time I prefer serp, but with the super greninja bros...

    Raikou is even outclassed as a cming electric type by tapu koko. Koko can run roost (reliable recovery is huge, frees up the option to forgo lefties for a z crystal or whatever) or taunt over substitute, while still having that sexy 130 speed tier. The change in bulk that lets raikou sub on zap...

    Yeah, and a fucking sash golurk as your only countermeasure isn't going to be enough to stop them, either. That's kinda the con of using mono ghost, you lose to dark types unless you play immaculately. Tyke know's what he's doing, and he's been in the monotype forum contributing a hell of a lot...

    Hang on, if you're using z grassy terrain to boost serp's speed, wouldn't it lower serp's speed instead because of contrary? Or do z status moves ignore that?

    Oh, yeah, I hate that set. The person I responded to was talking about getting speed boosts from beast boost, and that's the only way you can get them with kartana.

    Pokémon Tapu Koko

    You missed the point. He was saying that fully physical koko doesn't beat anything that mixed koko with brave bird can't. Invested wild charge hits a bit harder than tbolt, yes, but what OHKO/2HKOs does it achieve that thunderbolt can't? The one application I can think of is doing a ton of...

    I'm working on a poison team, but I have no idea what to do with mega venu's evs. I'm thinking bold phys def to pair with spdef toxapex, but should I just go max HP/max def? Or is there something worth speed and/or spdef creeping for? Similarly, is spdef toxapex best off with max hp and spdef...
