    It still has Prankster Role Play for winning the weather war. It might deserve a drop, but unranked is a little far this early in the meta.

    Resource VGC 2019 Viability Rankings [Moon Series Update]

    Everytime I enter a new meta with Xerneas, I always bet against it. "It's too predictable, people know how to counter it, new meta shifts XYZ will diminish its ability to operate." And every meta I end up using it because its really that good. It can turn around games by itself. There's maybe 2...

    Serious when is violence acceptable?

    I've been trying to think of what to post here as I process the events from this last weekend. I think I'll stick with this: violence against Nazis is justifiable self defense. These people would kill me if they could. An important part of their ideology is scapegoating me for the world's...

    To be fair, Empoleon counters Xern via Roar, not KO. But yeah, I don't see how it takes on Ogre (though +1 Liquidation does threaten a 3HKO vs Ogre which was better than I expected). VGC stats has current CP at basically nothing (28 CP), so it'd be nice to see a higher placing or high profile...

    What does Whimsicott offer against Kartana, Ferrothorn, Solgaleo, Dusk Mane, or other misc Steel type? Talonflame offers Tailwind + Taunt to beat the Xerneas mirror, and also offers Flare Blitz to cripple potential Steel counters. And LO Flare Blitz does a lot of damage in the sun, actually...

    Seconding everything ck49 said. Also adding that the proposal was for B- rank. Here are the other Pokemon in B- rank right now: Abomasnow, Araquanid, Dialga, Ditto, Hitmontop, Landorus-T, Palkia, Tapu Bulu, Zapdos. Talonflame fits perfects with this group. Niche Pokemon that either have some...

    Yeah, that's what you want Tailwind users to do on a hyper offense team. Set up tailwind and get out of the way to bring in a heavy hitter. It threatens Xerneas and Groudon for 50% of their HP, which again is the whole point of the Pokemon. It doesn't need to threaten an OHKO: if it threatens a...

    What do you do with those turns though? The turn after TR, all you have on the field is a Mimikyu. Are you really able to take advantage of a temporary removal?

    There are a lot of people with a lot to lose from this. Everyone has a right to vote for who they want to be president, but you have to own up to the fact that if you didn't vote Clinton, you enable Trump to win this.

    Rock head + Flare Blitz, that's honestly really cool. I'm assuming its signature item still doubles attack, which would make that pretty tough to switch into.

    Z-Move Discussion

    Most of the Z move seem to be at least 1.5x better than the base form. I'd argue this power seems pretty perfect. Its a one time nuke a little stronger than a gem boost that leaves the user free to switch moves.

    Z-Move Discussion

    I haven't had much time to keep up with the Z move mechanics as they've been revealed (haven't played the demo either) so I have a little bit of a stupid question/clarification: when you use a Z move, does it replace or enhance the effect of the regular move? For example, if use the Ghost Z move...

    VGC 17 Discussion Thread

    While we can't know anything for sure, I disagree with this logic. I see where you're coming from: a lot of the old Pokemon in the national dex are our competitive staples, that the metagame has centralized around in the past. But the lack of Megas and introduction of Z moves are two very...

    I'm really glad they raised the money for their opposition. I live in Orange County, NC, and the race here is really close. Our governor is the worst, and the Democratic opposition actually has a shot. This incident has the potential to become a serious talking point here, and I really hope the...

    Mega Evolutions may be gone this year, but there's no guarantee that it won't return next year. Players that played battle spot doubles in 2014 were far more prepared for 2015 then the players who avoided battle spot doubles. It might be worth it to be familiar with how the new meta operates...

    Bleach Discussion Thread

    I really wish Bleach ended with Ichigo losing his powers post beating Aizen. I honestly feel like that was the original ending because he had been the bad guy behind everything, and it seemed so final. If Kubo really wanted to keep printing money, he could have done a spin off with Ichigo's...

    Gen VII: Pokémon Sun and Moon (New info Post #5834)

    To me, this heavily implies that Sun and Moon is a Gen 2 style game with a return to Kalos. There is still a lot of story to be told regarding Zygarde, and it doesn't make sense that Pokemon would just drop that. They're hyping this game with phrases like "It all comes together" so I highly...

    Does anyone else feel like Xerneas doesn't deserve S-rank? It's part of the Big 6 and a top tier Pokemon for sure, but I don't think its the right fit for S rank. Let me quote the definition, as so many do when making these arguments: Multiple roles: Xerneas has exactly one role. I'm sure...
