    Forretress (1/3)

    don't think i actually wrote one of these since bw, so forgive my clerical errors and rust [OVERVIEW] * Forretress does, in theory, possess multiple traits that make it particularly enticing as a Pokemon; Rapid Spin, most significant forms of entry hazard, and Volt Switch are exceedingly...

    introduction yo. been a while since i've touched down in these parts, the life cycle of a tr badge and then some iirc. which is a shame, really, since building still holds my interest even in these trying times, and rating is something i have enjoyed doing in the past as a result. too many...

    Tournament driver gets heated (r3 posted)

    aka RU Minitour #6, hosted by me yo. to counter balance the 'every brokemon is now in the tier', i decided this tour will instead look to bring a bit more balance to a tier. also i luv bw2 ru, hot meta (otherwise the tour name is a v.strong misnomer) rules: tier is bw2 ru, with minor changes...

    Whimsicott (QC 2/3)

    should've gotten this up a while ago, whoops. also, i haven't done a thing since 'nam, so forgive formatting mistakes Overview ######## - utility on a stick; net's stupid amounts of momentum - two really useful abilities, backed by an expansive support movepool - mad value from typing: yields...

    Strategy & Metagame RU Suspect Coverage

    if somebody has a cooler name, i'm all ears anywho, being the first, community-involved suspect of the oras ru metagame, it's pretty gosh darn neat, and there's a substantial amount of depth with the involved suspect 'mons. what i'd probably be doing (always open to constructive criticism from...

    [RU] Gothorita [QC 2/3]

    Figured I'd get this out there as well, since I should be able write up camel fairly quickly, and this is a pretty narrow analysis content-wise. Also Gothorita is adorable af 'n one of my favourite 'mons :] Why This Belongs On-Site: Efficient trappers, especially ones that can set up, are...

    [RU] Rotom-F (BW2 Revamp) [QC 2/3]

    didn't watch frozen yet, i have no reference for this. idk, frozone something something *-* [Overview] <p>From an offensive outlook, Rotom-F has many desirable traits that make it worth using in the RU tier. Electric / Ice typing is stellar offensively, especially in the current metagame, as...

    [RU] Camerupt (BW2 Revamp) [QC 2/3]

    smoke err day [Overview] <p>While commonly overshadowed similar Pokemon in the tier, Camerupt does retain a couple significant niches in the RU metagame.

    Crustle (BW2 Revamp) [QC 3/3] [GP 2/2]

    came up from the bottom… [Overview] <p>As far as appearances go, Crustle's hardened exterior is just about as deceptive as they come. Despite its reasonable defensive stats and typing, too many negative traits offset these positives for Crustle to effectively fill a defensive role. Its...

    Smeargle (BW2 Revamp) [QC 4/5]

    i am artist [Overview] Access to every move in the game makes Smeargle fairly versatile Unforunately, mediocre stat distribution restricts it largely to a support-based role, most commonly in a "lead" role Access to a moderately fast Spore, every forme of hazard, BP+every boosting move, and...
