    Sleep Clause in Generation 8

    Arguing that it's entirely on ABR to provide arguments for changing the status quo is misinformed at best. The literal tiering policy itself, the Smogon constitution, the holy book, the one thing we've collectively managed to agree on, is pretty clear on this. "We play, to the best of our...

    Snorlax [QC 2/2, GP 2/2]

    Nah I didn't mean pivot, closest thing to a pivot in RBY is Cloyster but without uturn/vswitch/bpass I'd say that role doesn't really exist. I meant defensive piece as in 'part of a larger core (=piece) that allows you to stall out the opposition's attempts to break through (=defensive)'. If...

    Gen 1 RBY OU Viability Ranking - Mark II

    Before paraslam discoveries Golem was the better mon because the meta as a whole was substantially different. Don't forget that this is a tier so stupidly centralized that even Porygon manages to see play just because he counters Snorlax, and stuff like Victreebel that isn't very good in UU but...

    Gen 1 RBY OU Viability Ranking - Mark II

    "Inspiring" is one thing, but we're staring at 10 Golem uses against 123 Rhydon uses in the last two SPLs. Either every top player is clueless, or they've figured something out

    Gen 1 RBY OU Viability Ranking - Mark II

    This is the important part. Exeggutors don't just magically snap out of existance. They're fairly common and generally very alive in the midgame. Also there isn't much that Golem can threaten in a 1v1, you list electric and normal-type moves as if they're a long list of stuff, but really that...

    I'm generally more of a ripper than a builder but I did put together some half decent stuff and some really fun stuff and I guess everyone is sharing their stuff so I'll join in :scrafty::gothitelle::stakataka::incineroar::tapu-fini::abomasnow-mega: Scrafty @ Eject Button Ability...

    Gen 1 RBY OU Viability Ranking - Mark II

    Going to open by saying that we could argue for days but until someone brings Golem and has success with it in high level play no one will change their mind. By this point we have enough data showing the massive gap between the two rocks and if the data doesn't change I highly doubt any opinions...

    Snorlax [QC 2/2, GP 2/2]

    It sounds that way because I meant for it to sound that way - the regular IceLax gets absolutely dumped on by Gengar and I want that to be pretty clear. 21.5% crit chance means Lax has to chain Rests slightly under half the time, and whenever it dares to click Ice Beam it's exposing itself to...

    Snorlax [QC 2/2, GP 2/2]

    Slashed Counter over Hyper Beam and expanded on Ice Beam's shortcomings. Lusch one last mention to confirm the QC and we can finally move on ^^

    Snorlax [QC 2/2, GP 2/2]

    This is something we've argued over a lot and never came to an agreement on. Me and Nails believe slashing Counter over HB should not be a thing, you and FOMG believe that it should, and we've made no progress on this specific argument in months. Not really sure how to handle this. What exactly...

    Jolteon [OU] [QC: 2/2] [GP: 2/2]

    This is a good list of Jolteon's qualities but it fails to stress on the really important ones and differentiate between things that dictate its viability and things that are just added details. I would try to reorder and reword this paragraph so that it covers all the general qualities and...
