  1. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #370]

    So if we're talking about shitmons does Noctowl have a place on sticky web teams? It occured to me it has a combination of Nasty Plot + Tinted Lens + "unresisted" flying move (i think there's no 4x resists to flying attacks this gen) so it could happily spam Hurricanemiss or Air Slash without...
  2. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #370]

    I'd just use Solar Power Zard. Once someone sets sun: Charizard @ Choice Specs Ability: Solar Power Timid Nature 252 SpA/262 Spe/6 HP -Fire Blast -Focus Blast -Air Slash/Hurricane -Solarbeam 252 SpA Choice Specs Solar Power Charizard Fire Blast vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Toxapex in Sun: 150-177...
  3. Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    Speaking about Dual Screens there's onde mon i like using sometimes since it's about the only one that can afford to set Screens up and still retains it's main niche and purpose: Serperior @ Light Clay Ability: Contrary Evs: 4 HP / 252 SPA / 252 Spe Timid Nature -Reflect -Light Screen...
  4. Project SM OU Lure That Threat v2 Round 45 - Heart Swap Magearna

    Just a tip: use Mewnium Z instead, which is slightly stronger and gets boosted further by it's effect of setting Psychic Terrain up. You could also use Aura Sphere which still KOes T-tar after a NP boost and will not miss.
  5. Metagame USUM Memetagame Discussion was a mistake

    On a serious note, OTR Stakataka seems to go pretty well with Mega Heracross, which works under trick room and resists ground and fighting attacks while Staka murders any fairy mon standing in the way for Mega Hera (and laughs at flying attacks). Throw a Slowbro in the equation with Psychic for...
  6. Metagame [SPOILERS] ULTRA SM - Speculation & Discussion

    So Kommo-o is getting a pretty stupid Z-Move and Close Combat for DD sets to add unpredictability (+1 Z-Close Combat hurts a lot)... And it's still really weak and niche lol Sticky Web is also useable by Slurpuff now mind you. Webs + Endeavor with Unburden turns it into a situacional suicide lead.
  7. Project USUM OU Victim of the Week [Week 49: Dragon Dance Gyarados]

    Toxicroak as a counter Toxicroak @ Leftovers Ability: Dry Skin Evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Swords Dance - Gunk Shot - Drain Punch - Sucker Punch / Ice Punch Toxicroak doesn't care about Suicune at all, absorbing it's only attacking move and setting up Swords Dances for free...
  8. Project USUM OU Victim of the Week [Week 49: Dragon Dance Gyarados]

    SD Toxicroak as a counter Toxicroak @ Leftovers Ability: Dry Skin Evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly/Adamant Nature - Swords Dance - Gunk Shot - Earthquake / Drain Punch - Sucker Punch / Ice Punch Toxicroak completely counters Toxapex, being immune to both Toxic and Scald. If you come in...
  9. Metagame Metagame Discussion Thread v2

    Just use LO instead. It can still keep it's tank properties. Hudro Pump/Hurricane/Ice Beam/Roost gets the most out of the set IMO. And this kind of Pelipper should be used as a standalone poke IMO. It's not that worth pairing it with Swift Swim users, although some tanks still aprreciate the...
  10. np: SUMO UU Stage 1 - Feels Like We Only Go Backwards

    Merely beacuse Blue Flare exists, which is far more powerful and still maintains a good 20% chance of burning. It's accuracy is not perfect, but Victini needs all the power it can get since base 100 SpA is not something you can call high.
  11. SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    If anyone is worried about Clefable, run Iron Tail over Poison Jab: +1 252+ Atk Mold Breaker Haxorus Iron Tail vs. 248 HP / 252+ Def Clefable: 346-408 (88 - 103.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock Or you could also run Life Orb, but being locked on Outrage isn't good with a meta filled...
  12. Pokémon Alola Ninetales

    Instead of wasting effort with two Aurora Veil users, if you really want to use 2 mons to set up "screens" why not use the another mon for the traditional screens (Reflect/Light Screen)? They stack with each other after all. I still believe it's not the greatest idea but hey, double screens is...
  13. SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    That was directly aimed at the Scarf set (which i was seeing every freaking time), i sould have made it clearer...since it outspeed Staraptor by just one point. But that's just my luck, i'm sure other sets were just as common. Suicune and Rotom-H are shaky ckecks, due to Rotom being weak to...
  14. SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    Thundurus-Therian out means Scarf Staraptor has a field day murdering nearly everything right now. No Mach Punch from Breloom is also pretty good news for it. Also with the past bans i noticed UU lacks Dragon Dance mons. The best we have now is Feraligatr, with Haxorus and Flygon next (i feel...
  15. AAA Almost Any Ability

    Latias @ Leftovers Ability: Stamina Evs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 Spe Timid Nature -Calm Mind -Stored Power -Refresh/Dragon Pulse -Recover The premise is simple: Stamina gives you +1 defense everytime you get hit, not only making Latias bulkier every hit... it also boosts Stored Power even further...
  16. SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    Seeing this meta being somewhat offensive, i'd say Sticky Web is a very good hazard right now. You can choose between 3 decent ones depending on your team, though i'm more fond of: Leavanny @ Focus Sash Ability: Overcoat Evs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Sticky Web - Fell Stinger -...
  17. Pokémon Pheromosa

    If that's not enough, it's a pretty cockroach. Like, what? Oh, and out of curiosity about the "frailty": 0 Atk Mew Dragon Claw vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Pheromosa: 124-146 (43.8 - 51.5%) -- 9.8% chance to 2HKO 0 Atk Mew Dragon Claw vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Dugtrio: 100-118 (47.3 - 55.9%) -- 79.3% chance to 2HKO...
  18. Metagame Sketchmons

    Some simple sets, which works like standard mons, but better: Porygon-Z @ Choice Scarf Ability: Adaptability EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Boomburst - Trick - Shadow Ball - Hidden Power Fighting Pretty simple: click Boomburst and watch everything taking funny amounts of damage...
  19. Pokémon Pheromosa

    If damage output is so important Darmanitan would be OU. There's much more important things to consider, like typing, coverage and other stats... even metagame trends are decisive on how a pokemon is effective (remember Gastrodon on gen 5?). Pheromosa high speed plays a much more important part...
  20. Sun & Moon UU Speculation and Discussion Thread - Updated with UU Alpha!

    Magneton @ Choice Scarf Ability: Magnet Pull EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe Timid Nature - Volt Switch - Thunderbolt - Hidden Power Fire - Flash Cannon Magnezone style. Does some real work, with Scarf being able to outspeed up to Weavile and trapping steels, which are worth more than before...
