    Victim Of The Week [VoTW #27 - Zygarde / Zygarde-Complete]

    3heartschall Landorus is a great teambuilding resource who also threatens an immediate OHKO on Excadrill which minimizes his chances of being bullshitted with horn drill, otherwise I'd say Celesteela is the better option. There are no true counters to Excadrill so at this point it becomes a...

    Victim Of The Week [VoTW #27 - Zygarde / Zygarde-Complete]

    i dont care Aside from the occasional focus miss and even rarer HP Ground, Heatran typically doesn't have too much to fear from Lele and has great general application in the meta since the increase in prominence of steel/fairy as offensive types has made the bulky fire a more useful team member...

    Victim Of The Week [VoTW #27 - Zygarde / Zygarde-Complete]

    Solerme Jellicent has reliable recovery, reliable burns and most importantly immunity to both PuP and Double Edge (next level no-mega scrappy plays notwithstanding). Sableye shares these traits but takes a mega slot which makes it less flexible as a team building option.

    Special Season 2: Revenge Of The Ubers!

    M-Sableye is a pretty good answer since WoW/Foul Play both deal with the boosts and the typing ensures it can get in on extremespeed or SD safely. M-Salamence and M-Gengar are checks that can still work in the right circumstance but are weaker with the aerialate/destiny bond nerfs. Bulky Yveltal...

    Viability Rankings (OUTDATED)

    Cloyster's a little weaker with Rotom-W and Suicune back in the game but still definitely A/B tier material for pretty obvious reasons. Powerful multi hit moves help it get around sashes, subs and Mimikyu, shell smash, the ability to run king's rock which makes it item slot neutral if you want...

    Victim Of The Week [VoTW #27 - Zygarde / Zygarde-Complete]

    P3DS I think the best counter basically needs to resist heavy slam, flamethrower and earthquake while also threatening OHKO which narrows things down to Rotom-H and Zard-Y (and Ludicolo lmao, which has the benefit of being leech seed immune at the 'cost' of being weak to air slash, as if that...

    Victim Of The Week [VoTW #27 - Zygarde / Zygarde-Complete]

    Corrin I don't think there's a pokemon that deals with Mimikyu as quickly and cleanly, while also being quite good for overall team comp as scarf Excadrill. Mimikyu is not the kind of pokemon I like to leave on the field for long, I'd rather KO it before I figure out which of its many potential...

    VGC 17 Discussion Thread

    Bank just dropped and the new rules in season 2 will permit previously banned egg moves and HAs for giftmons, the most relevant stuff I can think of is Aerodactyl - Unnerve Porygon2 - Analytic (probably worse in most cases but still viable) Hariyama - Helping Hand (kind of dodgy but could see...

    Resource VGC 2017 Viability Rankings (Currently Outdated)

    I agree on there not being a real S-Rank in this meta. There's just nothing that stands out as that dominant from my perspective, nothing on the level of Groudon-P in last year's rules. I think Porygon2 is probably the closest thing to fitting that bill in that it's a strong defensive presence...

    Pheromosa is extremely flimsy which is typically a very bad thing in doubles. She is situationally useful mostly due to the lack of good fighting types in this meta (Buzzwole and Hariyama are basically the other reasonable options and both are less independent than Pheromosa), she can be used to...

    So after bank the rules are being changed to permit some bank exclusive content, like HAs for pokemon that can't be chained for (this mostly helps Aerodactyl), egg moves with inaccessible chains, ect. They might also permit non-Alolan forms of Aloladex mons that have full Alolan lines. All of...

    Resource VGC 2017 Viability Rankings (Currently Outdated)

    I agree that Ninetales is pretty good against rain (especially because a lot of the good rainmons are x4 weak to freeze dry) and C tier is probably underselling it looking at the stuff in C tier verses B tier. Probably just a kneejerk to it being rated very high relative to how effectively I see...

    From my experience, mostly on cart Raise Tapu Bulu - B+. It is probably the weakest Tapu option overall but the Tapu remain amazing, it wins terrain weather wars, provides useful electric/water resists, has an effective x4 ground resist, has super strong netural hits and can half damage from...

    Quality Control Alolan Ninetales (Singles) (QC 0/2)

    In most cases, even if you're running Sandy-A with Ninetales-A you're not going to want to use it as your primary sweeper. Sandslash's primary utility, in my eyes, is that it resists and returns hard hits on things that dragons are weak to and Ninetales has very good synergy with most of the...

    Xurkitree (Singles) (QC 0/2)

    One thing I've seen in place of hypnosis on the speed boosting set is Electric Terrain. You forgo the chance to cripple something with sleep but you do gain two advantages 1. Electric terrain boosted STAB without making yourself super ground weak by carrying support Koko alongside Xurkitree. 2...

    BSS Good Sets For New Mons Compendium

    There isn't really much Incineroar really wants to run for coverage. The only things that resist fire/dark in the current meta off the top of my head are Tapu Fini/Azumarill, Sharpedo/Megados and Hariyama w/ Thick Fat. Those are all such god awful matchups for Incineroar that a coverage move is...
