    BW OU's future: Shadow Tag vote and upcoming changes [SHADOW TAG BANNED]

    The BW Council has collected and reviewed the survey sent out a few weeks ago; responses are publicized here for transparency. The trouble with generalizing the results is due to the drastically differing replies. Comments ran the gamut from stating Gothitelle's Obvious Brokenness to its...

    swagger ban

    i'm wondering what the purpose of the swagger ban carrying over from gen6 is? it was already a contentious ban originally, and since then thunder wave has been nerfed which effectively hampers the legitimacy of swagplay strats. it just seems like a very unnecessary clause in our metagame, and...

    re: initial ou tiering

    why does ou begin with such an arbitrary ban list? this has always irked me and i don't consider it effective. pokemon with certain parameters are always given ubers status from the start of a generation. but why? although it's solely anecdotal, i believe current ubers could achieve greater...

    ORAS Ubers the sinkhole spreads

    hi. there have been scarce quality ubers teams posted in this subforum as of late due to spl. due to it ending relatively soon, and out of boredom, here's a pretty fun sand offense i made somewhat recently. this team has a pretty common offensive core that has been seen on sand builds numerous...

    Gen 6 sticky web discussion

    sticky web teams seem unique enough to deserve a thread in regards to how they are played and used. they differ vastly from any other playstyle in playing and building. sticky web is kinda controversial as a team slot as well. since smeargle and shuckle are the only viable users, your team...

    Gen 6 EV'ing Quirks

    Do you have any cool spreads you'd like to share which you think are better than the standard spread? 248 HP / 176 Atk / 52 SpD / 32 Spe is a spread I've used on Ho-Oh for quite a while which has caught on recently allowing it to live a +2 Xerneas Thunder while hitting the Attack benchmark with...

    i figured i wouldn't write another rmt for quite some time after my last ou post since i find them tedious to write; however, given the fact that i am the person who has pushed the current ubers suspect through and have recently grown very active in the tier once again, i felt obligated to post...

    i kinda miss the days when people actually posted rmts. maybe i'm just feeling altruistic after getting badged yet again, but whatever. apparently it used to be of higher quality in dp, but even in bw when i began, rmt was an outlet for ideas and gave the community a way to get into the game...

    R a d i o a c t i v e ----- I'm going to make this short. No one wants to read a RMT with 3 paragraph long descriptions full of absolute fluff in each section. Despite the fact that the BW2 OU metagame is very matchup reliant, this team has proven to be consistent for a few months...
