    CAP 26 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    The ladder is not considered a valid measure of what is good or should be run. The sample size is poor and it's flooded with bad players running poorly optimized sets, even at high ranks, because they got there by beating the other bad players with poorly optimized sets. If you ask anyone with...

    CAP 26 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    252 SpA Gengar Shadow Ball vs. 252 HP / 132+ SpD Arghonaut: 105-124 (25.3 - 29.9%) -- 0.2% chance to 4HKO after Leftovers recovery Yes. The special tanks of the format have no trouble at all taking unboosted neutral hits, and Shadow Ball's pretty medium base power doesn't hurt (help?) either.

    CAP 26 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    4) Typings I have seen support of and am some degree of positive towards are Steel/Ghost, Steel/Ground, Steel/Flying, and Mono-Steel, in approximately that order. I haven't seen a lot of support for types that I think are bad, so I'll leave that alone, it's well-trodden ground. My personal...

    CAP 26 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    1) Yes. Doom Desire, while certainly not weak at 140 bp, is not much stronger than essentially any usable attack would be with STAB. To get the desired power out of Doom Desire almost certainly requires STAB, and while this could hypothetically be compensated with higher Special Attack, that...

    Name - These Shackles Make Me Mortal (Rewritten from 2MN's submission for CAP24) Description - A Pokemon of brutal, unimaginable power, who by some combination of lacklaster/actively detrimental ability, dubious typing, and poorly optimized movepool, balances out into something appropriate for...

    Other Silly Things You've Seen On The OU Ladder: V2

    Tier Shift Metagame (THIS IS BW)

    Yeaaah it'll be a few months at least. There's a reason it didn't crop up until quite late last gen.

    Tier Shift Metagame (THIS IS BW)

    I'm certainly hoping it will be brought forward once tiers are settled in. By its very nature, it won't really work prior to that.

    Move Future Sight & Doom Desire

    They did until generation V. They do the proper type of damage now.

    Move Future Sight & Doom Desire

    In response to the posts mentioning it, one could argue Doom Desire already did get a buff: It's now Super Effective on one more typing, at the very least. Once December rolls around, we'll see if that's enough to justify its use, or if it (or Jirachi) got anything else new in the generation...
