    End of the month coming, so I'm gonna share the other team I built after sharing my old one. It's kind of my take on stall in Trademarked, it's based around putting pressure with hazards and status, and that comes which its pros and cons. The theme of the team was always supposed to be me...

    Metagame Follow the Leader

    Last post in 2017... that's sad :( Anyway, I was having fun creating teams around some leaders I thought had potential, so here they are (keep in mind they were only tested against the boss himself Abyssal Bot, so... ye) : I created these teams some time apart and only realized the 5...

    It's crazy how well this sums up my feelings about Sub too. As I talked about how fun Clefable's team was, there was the implication of how fun using Sub can be, too. I can see how it's by nature too strong, but sometimes it feels like only a few sub users (Tran, Maro-A) with proper support...

    Nice of you to mention me for no reason lol. And why are you assuming I haven't tried Conk out? The whole reason I suggested Conk getting ranked (I didn't even suggest placement) is because I found a lot of success using it in a TR balance team (the team I used for Hoopa reqs). Now, if you're...

    I'm voting BAN. I didn't even know if I was gonna actually go for reqs and was just trying some stuff out at low ladder and decided to use Clefable's team. I just kept playing not even really thinking about it and ended up only realizing how close I was when I was at like 25 games. Really...

    I'm sorry for picking apart another post, but how is Buzzwole one of the best sub abusers in the meta and Conk sucks as a sub user? Conk has a 100+ HP sub, STAB FPunch and access to Knock Off, it's slightly stronger than Buzz and way slower, fitting TR well. If we were to ban the sub users ktüt...

    I think you do bring some good points and it's nice to have a diverse array of opinions, but I don't think this part is exactly accurate - sure, Ubers can't really ban PDon, because it's Ubers at the end of the say, but that doesn't mean PDon isn't extremely overcentralizing and that it wouldn't...

    With everything that's happening, I feel like Sub may not be sticking around for much longer in the meta, so I decided to post this team I've been using along with a feat that I'm proud of! Sub Heatran + Toxic Spikes Tentacruel Semi-Stall (Peaked #1, 40-0) As you may (or may not)...

    I'm voting ABSTAIN, because even though I think Hoopa-U is potentially broken even in a Sub-less meta, the fact that it abuses Sub so well, in multiple ways, makes it hard to clearly understand if Hoopa or Sub is the problem, as far as Hoopa usage pre-suspect is concerned. Regardless, I do share...

    As easy as setting hazards up can be in this meta, Mat Block and King's Shield form an infinite loop without hazards up, don't they? And as easy getting hazards up is, getting them off is also quite easy.

    Just like it would normally. If you have no Power Herb, you have to geomancy the 2nd turn, and if you have it, it resolves in a single turn (an example: http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/rom-gen7trademarked-551193). Anyway, happy Trademarked got OMotM!

    Metagame Godly Gift

    I honestly think Shuckle should be looked at. Aside from the sets that may be considered gimmicks (even though they can be extremely powerful in some match ups) like Contrary SSmash/Rest/Infestation/Toxic, the sets that I really wanna bring attention to are the Sticky Web ones. Why? Because, in...

    Metagame Shared Power [Under Re-Construction!]

    I think donating an item seems too much, imagine a team full of mons with Sheer Force, Life Orb + each mon item, for example. Maybe, if people think sharing an ability and a move is not enough (it really is, it's nothing like Godly Gift (why did people even say this) and 5 mons have effectively...

    Metagame Shared Power [Under Re-Construction!]

    Serene Grace may not be broken, but it's uncompetitive. It also makes the meta more match up based, because Serene Grace teams usually lose to Defensive/Stamina teams and specially Prankster Defensive Set-Up teams, while being able to win against Offensive teams that abuse Sash, for example...
