    Gen 2 GSC NU

    I saw a few matches on the Showdown Replay site playing GSC NU (mostly between Isa and Earthworm in games like this) and it got me nostalgic for that time because I always thought NU was a cute tier. The legal mons can be found in this post on a long-dead forum. Basically everything explicitly...

    Gen 2 SPL players watch your butts

    lol pkmn is a dumb game sometimes personally i might use mean look to prevent infinite-switching strats. also you kinda need swagger to do enough damage fast enough for this to be effective, which is a shame because it can make lax pretty scary; if he breaks out of confusion at max attack you...

    Gen 2 Steelix question

    Can somebody tell me why the ADV standard of Earthquake/Toxic/Roar/Rest just doesn't get used in GSC? I mean, Toxic to nail Cloys and Eggs and keep out shit like Marowak and Machamp would be pretty awesome, and Rest to actually stall out Zapdos and not fear Hidden Powers so much from Raikou? Yes...

    Heracross (OU Revamp)

    Hera's current analysis is pretty simple and outdated. Here's a proposed update. [Overview] Heracross has an uncommon combination of high Attack, a high-powered STAB, decent Speed and bulk, and a defensive typing that importantly resists powerful Fighting and Ground moves while being neutral to...

    Gen 2 GSC BP!

    GSC BP! I figured I'd post the B(aton) P(ass) team I used during SPL (not really "mine" by any means) and sort of share my thoughts on how to play it. Specifically, it's hyper-offensive Agility-pass, not another variety of Baton Pass-centered team like Mean Look pass or Growth Pass. It comes...

    Gen 2 GSC Turn limit proposal

    Listen. It need not necessarily be the case that GSC matches end in stall wars, but the reality is that they happen. However, calling ties in obvious situations isn't self-policing because we've seen several times (particularly in SPL) that people will play them out for hundreds of turns...

    Gen 1 Normal-types cannot be paralyzed by Body Slam

    So Crystal_ just dropped this bomb on us, and he's basically the one dude in the world that knows RBY cart mechanics down to the machine level, and fully appreciates their importance in high-level RBY play. Needless to say, it's probably legit. Basically, in-cart, Normal-types are immune to...

    Gen 2 I went through a teambuilding exercise and wrote some words about it

    tl;dr I make a shitty team and still try to make it sound like I'm hot shit enjoy Ever wondered how teams work in GSC? Well, here's a little example of a teambuilding exercise I went through. This particular example is of a team that DOESN'T work, but there's plenty to be learned from...

    All Gens Capitalization

    Figured I'd bring up this concept w.r.t. GSC, but then I realized it'd be relevant to all other gens so there ya go. Across all the generations, what are some of the best Ys to capitalize off the opponent's active Xs? Ideally, the Ys switch into a very common X in the metagame, and can use the...

    Gen 2 Paralysis and Screens

    Paralysis and Screens are two things everyone pays lip-service to when talking about offensive mons in GSC. How many times have you heard "Charizard is great with Screen support" or "Marowak absolutely wrecks with paralysis support"? But, nobody really uses screens or dedicated paralysis moves...

    My Rain Team for Messing Around in BW

    Intro: So, I'm mostly a GSC guy, but with the dearth of people on GSC ladder and the fact that GSC can be very taxing mentally, I like to go for the quick and easy junk food that is BW from time to time. And when I do, I like to use Rain semi-stall because that's just always what I've used in BW...

    Gen 2 Possible event move inaccuracies in PO (and probably showdown too)

    Here's a link to the post on PO forums I made. For those that would rather not click a link, here's the full post: So I was browsing around looking at details for some event moves implemented on the PO GSC teambuilder. The pages I'm referencing are here and here. The two main things I found...

    Gen 2 RMT: You all know I don't like Snorlax, so here I am not using it

    All right. So I've been tinkering around, trying to find a reason NOT to use Snorlax in GSC, and the best reason I can think of is that you already have 3 Fighting-weaks, like the support that each of those uniquely provides, and do not want to get rid of one for Snorlax. More than 3 Fight Weaks...
