    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there's any real precedent for banning a Pokemon simply because it is overcentralizing, and not because it is overwhelming either offensively, defensively or supportively. Aegislash is the only thing that comes to mind, and even that was considered...

    I can absolutely vouch for Perish Trap Azumarill, even outside of luring stuff it's a surprisingly effective stallbreaker since it can literally just trap and remove anything defensive the opponent sends or keeps in on it, which makes it excellent for defensive teams in need of something that...

    Resource Ultra Sun & Moon OU Analysis Discussion

    Azumarill should have a Sap Sipper Perish Trap set added to its analysis, it's a pretty good way to remove Ferrothorn and Toxapex and it's also a decent check to Kartana (which runs Smart Strike less and less nowadays) and Tapu Bulu. If it gains more popularity people might expect it and know...

    I feel like you're missing the point here. The fact that Mega Garchomp both suffers massive competition and struggles against an S ranked Pokemon is why it shouldn't move up. It's ultimately very hard to justify using MChomp over Landorus-T, and the fact that Lando-T is easily the best Pokemon...

    Metagame MediocreMons

    Couple of other thing I've noticed since the changes: I'm... honestly not sure what to make of Silvally. SD seems good in theory, specifically with Fighting memory, but I've never actually managed to make it work due to the prevalence of Unaware Clefable and Quagsire. Bulky sets are probably...

    Metagame MediocreMons

    I've been trying out this tier and it's really fun, but something probably needs to be done about Kingdra and Nidoqueen because dear lord they are absolutely monstrous threats. Kingdra can only really by handled by Ferroseed as far as I can tell, Clefable can deal with it it sometimes, but if...

    Not a nom, but the first thing I want to say here is that Blacephalon should remain A- rank. I know a lot of people are going to dismiss it as overhyped garbage and request it move down because it loses to TTar, but outside of that it's actually really solid. Specs is a really strong wallbreaker...

    Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    I've been using Blacephalon a bunch, both Scarf and Specs, and I definitely think Specs is the better set of the two. I just don't see much of a reason to run Blacephalon as a Scarfer over stuff like Kartana or Greninja, besides being able to revenge kill Shift Gear Mage which has severely...

    Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    This set seems pretty interesting, and it's a huge shame that Toxapex forces this thing to run EQ since otherwise it could easily afford CC/PJab/Ice Punch coverage, given that +1 CC has a pretty high chance to OHKO Magearna after SR damage. Fightinium-Z is probably worth considering on this set...

    SPOILERS! Poipole and Naganadel

    Modest Scarf doesn't outspeed Scarf Latios, so you'd probably want Timid with 172 Speed EVs, which still gets the SpA Beast Boost while barely outspeeding Latios (plus, extra bulk doesn't exactly hurt either)

    Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    Interestingly, 172 Speed Naganadel barely outspeeds Latios, which could be relevant for a Scarf set, what with Latios being a pretty common Scarfer too. I can't think of any scarfers that rest bewteen Latios and Greninja speed-wise, so this seems like a pretty legit option if that's the set you...
