    Pokémon Aegislash

    I think at this point it's clear that the mixed set is entirely superior to the SD set. Shadow Ball is so incredibly difficult to switch into now, just about 2HKOing many of the common switchins to the SD set, and doing massive damage to anything that isn't immune. The SD set is quite easy to...

    Pokémon Kangaskhan

    The fact that shit like Cofagrigus is being brought up is a pretty depressing statement about how people have to deal with Mega Kanga

    Other Freed Ubers

    Tornadus-T will never be near as good as he was last gen, but I'm really liking Deo-D and Genesect. Genesect is always gonna be amazing, just by merit of his coverage, and STAB, +1 Atk U-turns.

    Other Overrated, Underrated, Fitting [SURVEY RESULTS POSTED]

    It's weird answering some of these questions, cause you kinda have to guess the usage. I don't play often enough to see the trends of usage, other than fucking Rotom-W and Genesect being on EVERY GODDAMN TEAM, so a lot of the choices were basically "fittingly rated" by default.

    Fake Out is free damage in the same way that Protect is a free turn. Opponents can easily take advantage of its relatively low power, and Kanga really needs the moveslots for coverage.

    THEM SANDS-{._.} (peak #2 on the ladder 2690+)

    Messed around with this team for a bit, got to about 1900 with a pretty high winrate, but I feel like a lot of that was just my opponents not understanding how to prioritize what they needed to keep alive. I found that I had no real answer for a Rotom-W, in particular. All I could do was burn it...

    Gen 5 The OU Viability Ranking thread

    1) Chople Ttar also loses out on being actually threatening, and still gets OHKOd through Chople after some U-turn/Volt Switch + hazards damage. 2)I'm not comparing Ttar against Hippo, I'm comparing him to a hypothetical S-rank pokemon. If someone locks themseleves into Ice beam vs a Choice...

    Gen 5 The OU Viability Ranking thread

    Deo-D is almost assured SR and at least 1 layer of spikes, while Ttar can only put up SR/Pursuit trap as his team support. He is going to die before the opponent's Politoed, if not because of Dugtrio, because of the fact that he's weak to eeeeeverything that a rain team has. Torn-T can OHKO him...

    Gen 5 The OU Viability Ranking thread

    I seem to recall another setup sweeper that was walled hard by Heatran, I think it was, um, RP Genesect? In all seriousness, rain really puts a damper on Volcarona, who already has an SR weakness. I think B tier is fair.

    Gen 5 The OU Viability Ranking thread

    That doesn't mean that all suspects are immediately S tier, just that the pokes in S tier are most likely to become suspects. It's not a rule, just an indicator.

    All the slow mons can take it, besides something like Slowpoke..., and Joltik isn't fast enough to do much damage to any mon that isn't a wall, as they will likely be around Joltik's speed, as Joltik only hits 70, meaning everything that isn't a wall will have over 50% of Joltik's speed
