  1. Pokémon Talonflame

    I wouldn't say Rotom-W is a better counter in every way. Zapdos gets reliable recovery in Roost. Also, Rotom-W's standard set is Volt Switch and Hydro Pump, the first which doesn't OHKO, the second which misses 20% of the time. Zapdos can kill immediately with Thunderbolt (granted, you can run...
  2. Pokémon Talonflame

    Ladies and gents, I believe I have found the perfect Talonflame counter. Meet Zapdos: Zapdos is a force to be reckoned with since its inception. It was solid OU for 4 gens, top UU last gen, and now it gets legal Lightningrod to play with. Calcs (think I did them correctly) Talonflame vs...
  3. Freed Pokemon

    You don't need synergy (aside from not doing 3 different weathers) when you're running an Ubers team in OU. Same in LC.
  4. Freed Pokemon

    Why use a core when you can run the whole ladder to the ground with all 6 (screw vulpix) of them? This probably doesn't prove anything, but I haven't lost in 8 matches with that team (would do more but LC is slooow). In my experience, Yanma and Sneasel are definitely the strongest, easily...
  5. Other Poll: Steel - Nerfed or Buffed?

    I'd say that Steels definitely got nerfed. Doesn't help that Fairies are fairy fairly very rare, at least in the 20 or so games I've played these past few days. Still, no other type comes close to the defensive prowess Steel has. Sure, Mega Gengar can how rip Skarmory and Scizor a new one, but...
  6. Pokémon XY General Discussion

    Don't think Ghost needed a buff. The smarter thing for Gamefreak to do would be to just take away Steel resistance to Dark to balance its extra weakness, and keep its resistance to Ghost. I also dislike the idea of a Jigglypuff tanking an Outrage from a Rayquaza like a boss. I'm mixed about it...
  7. Pokémon BW2 In-game Tier List Mark II [See Post #840]

    I actually meant Haxorus there. Hydreigon has a cool typing and movepool that other Dragons don't get. Haxorus is just Outrage+Dragon Dance like everything else. I'll concede that that wasn't a great analogy though. I do agree with all your points, but I'm still not convinced its high tier. I'm...
  8. Pokémon BW2 In-game Tier List Mark II [See Post #840]

    That was a coherent argument actually. You don't have to agree, but I made a valid point. No need to get so worked up about it. It was in Limbo tier before. I'm arguing it's not good enough for High, by virtue of the several reasons stated above. You, on the other hand, may find that its STAB...
  9. Pokémon BW2 In-game Tier List Mark II [See Post #840]

    Pidove is definitely not high tier. It has a horrendous movepool, with half of its level up moves coming off its low special attack, and it's stats are unimpressive as well. The best it can do is a STAB combination of Fly/Return/Roost/(Filler move) from its decent 105 base attack. It's...
  10. Smogon University PO Statistics — June 2012

    You Smogon players are slow. Beta has had UU Scrafty, Mienshao, and even Toxicroak until this month, and RU Escavalier (actually it's NU now xD), Cryogonal and Magmortar for ages already. But yeah, this should be quite interesting. Two amazing fighting types in OU, especially Mienshao, dropping...
  11. Challenge The Scramble Challange

    @arcticblast You get Onion the Bulbasaur. If it is a boy, you must solo all gyms with him. If it is a girl, she must only use special moves. In any case, Onion can only use moves Ash's Bulbasaur, its hero, uses, at least until it evolves to Ivysaur.
  12. In-Game Tier List Discussion

    I didn't say that Tirtouga should be in high tier. Actually, its speed is probably why it isn't in high tier. Originally, I was going to post something about Panpour being the best water type besides Oshawott (but not in high, maybe upper mid), but then I remembered Tirtouga, forgetting its...
  13. Whiscash

    Sorry for bumping this, but with the metagame being so much different from in November, I feel that Whiscash could be up for discussion again. I might update if anyone adds something useful.
  14. Challenge The Scramble Challange

    LeafGreen eh? I haven't played those games in ages, but I'll try making something up for you. No need to thank me. You must capture Lucky the Chansey in Area 2 of the Safari Zone. She must be trained only from an exp. share, as she hates fighting. She must know strength at all times (after...
  15. In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Why is Tympole in high tier? Is it because of it only having 1 weakness? I mean, Seismitoad has pretty lackluster stats all around. Tirtouga is probably the second best water type after Oshawott and Panpour. I think it's only being placed so low because everyone gets Archen (which is stronger...
  16. Challenge The Scramble Challange

    I have no idea if I'm doing this right, but I assume you make something up that sounds crazy enough to work. You must capture Candle the Litwick on Celestial Tower 3F. She must be female, and be caught at level 27, with a Heal Ball, and an empty spot in your party. She is too weak to carry an...
  17. Electivire (Analysis)

    Actually, no need for a mixed set this gen around. Electivire now gets Wild Charge, which is a 90 BP Physical Electric move. The 25% recoil might hurt a bit, but Wild Charge will always hit harder than Thunderbolt off of Electivire's higher attack stat.
  18. Weather teams aren't so bad...

    Oh yeah, forgot the nature for it. I'll adjust later. And you can do the weather thing, but don't do the exact same team.
  19. Weather teams aren't so bad...

    Hehe, more weather teams, and no weather teams in this section.
  20. In-Game Tier List Discussion

    Come on, update the bloody original post already. Simipour is good, but not high tier good. Stop trying to argue that it kills everything in the game. It's definitely in upper mid though.
