  1. SM OU Let Me Make Myself Crystal Clear

    That Diancie looks hecka cool. Just saying. The maker of that gif has good taste. I'd go on, but that's not why I'm here. The team is quite well constructed and has good potential. Well done constructing this one. Judging by my knowledge of the current meta, I'd say there aren't any...
  2. Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v3

    Well, even though Shedinja can't pivot as effortlessly, as before, it doesn't mean it can't wall its previous victims (think Keldeo, Tapu Koko, Tapu Lele), and will force switches. Shedinja isn't unviable completely – it just can't pivot as well as before. On an unrelated note, hazards are...

  4. Resource SM OU Viability Ranking Thread

    Some problems: • 8 PP for STAB attack (bad if you're forced out a lot) • You're forced out a lot because Volcarona + Greninja(non-Ash) are more overpowered than the SC2 Terran race. They're also all over the place. • Less overpowered options (such as Heatran, Celesteela, Amoonguss, and Gengar)...
  5. Announcement np: SM OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - The Robots - Metagrossite BANNED

    Um, questions: • I get the impression in this thread that saying "Metagross is needed to keep some threats in line" is not recognized as a valid argument. • In this article (http://www.smogon.com/articles/oras-ou-retrospective), it is mentioned that "Metagross is needed to keep some threats in...
  6. SM UU Trying 2 git gud

    Small rate, but better than no rate. Cool idea for the ScarfGar, though I may want to toss Trick onto there so fatmons (i.e. Suicune) can't set up. Also it disrupts setup sweepers/Bisharp. Excellent ideas, but this will leave me bereft of Stealth Rock (in a metagame where practically everyone...
  7. SM UU Trying 2 git gud

    Title speaks for itself. I tried to look for advice on the UU room and the RMT room in Showdown, but no one would help me (except for one kind gentleman named "bow for glory". So maybe here I could get some help? These three formulated an attacking force that seemed legitimate to me. Gengar...

    Don't y'all have anything better to do than discuss the viability of Blissey? I think it'd be a better idea to put all that energy you used for Blissey into some other mon that has actual metagame presence (i.e. Tapu Koko)

    I've been seeing two Dugtrio teams that have been infesting the OU ladder lately, trying to make everyone fear the Stall. Specifically, these two:Seismitoad @ Leftovers Ability: Water Absorb EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD Sassy Nature - Scald - Knock Off - Stealth Rock - Rest Shedinja @ Focus...
  10. ORAS OU Anti meta Kyurem-B (peaked 1794 recently)

    Hi, I promised a rate, so here you go. Team is certainly unique and can put in work. However, I see a few problems +It seems you have a bit of a tough time vs. Ttar + Exca (and maybe ZardY as well) teams that are all over the place, which isn't really a good thing. Mega Scizor is also slightly...
  11. Project Break This Team (Week 42)

    I vote for core 3
  12. ORAS OU Mega Diancie Offensive Team.

    Was waiting for someone to give you a hand, but no one did, so here I go. The team seems fairly competent so far, it's just that your team has a few issues vs. various enemies. Stall – the lack of a Stallbreaker is very concerning, although Diancie can rectify the issues somewhat. Weavile –...

    What niches does Magnezone achieve outside of checking Steel-types? Is it useful when it's not attacking Steel-types? Also, why do people prefer Magnezone over Magneton? Magnezone can switch into attacks better, but what if most of the time, you don't need Magnezone to switch into stuff? Would...

    Last question: I was wondering what Gliscor could accomplish besides Stallbreaking, considering that role compression is fairly important in this metagame. (Even then, it can't 6-0 Stall.) Also, which set is better, the SD set, or the Taunt + Toxic set?

    I was worried about Manaphy's matchup vs. faster teams, and that's mainly why I asked if it was worthwhile to use, because if it's bad vs. faster teams, then I need to be sure my 5 remaining allies can do the job, which is fairly difficult. That's kinda what was on my mind

    I'd like to use these mons on a team, but they never seem to fit. What are some good allies for: • Talonflame • Gengar • Breloom • LO Torn-T Also, I would like to use Manaphy, but it seems like a bad idea, as while it can somewhat contribute vs. the Stall (it's no guarantee, as AV Tangrowth can...
  18. ORAS OU Fighting with Pillows: Xatu Regen Semi-Stall (Peaked >1900)

    Funnily enough, I fought this team 2 times. Both times I beat it. This team sucks. (Naw, I'm just kidding.)http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-360659846 (yea, IK, my team sucks ballz) http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ou-395707985 (I was pretty mindblown when I saw the team a second time, BTW...

  20. Resource ORAS OU Simple Questions, Simple Answers MKII (Read the OP First!) (Now with 100% more Rules!!!)

    Question: Is it necessary to have a wincon on your team? I use teams w/o a setup sweeper, and I achieve victory a good portion of the time (my GXE proves it). Yet when I talk to people about improving my teams and how I issue commands, there's always that one guy who criticizes my lack of a...
