  1. CAP 27 - Part 1 - Concept Submissions

    Name - Keep it Simple, Stupid Description - This pokemon makes use of the Simple Mechanic to double the effects of Stat Ups or Stat Downs. Justification- this potentially falls under both Archetype and Target - the Simple Mechanic is tied to an ability, which can be inflicted/gained in a...
  2. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP3 - Pyroak

    If it's not viable, it's not a buff.

    Haxorus @ Life Orb Ability: Mold Breaker EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Adamant Nature - Dragon Dance - Outrage - Earthquake - Poison Jab Mold Breaker Earthquake for levitating Steels, Poison for Fairies, and DD Outrage for pretty much anything else.
  5. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP7 - Kitsunoh

    How much changes Kitsunoh's move pool or standard sets if Sheer Force Replaces Tough Claws, and Shadow Strike is replaced with Spirit Shackle? I mean obvious from a straight damage, it is an uptick of Steel AND ghost Stabs, as well as Uturn, which was not touched before, but does it affect match...
  6. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP 1 - Syclant

    MaahirMomtaz12 - Smart Strike is not a new TM or TR in Gen 8 (TM67 in Gen 7). While Psycho Cut and Cross Poison are new TM's, they would provide new potentially competitive options and coverage that are not already present in its movepool. If you can prove/justify their inclusions outside of...
  7. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer (CAP V. 3.0 READ THE OP!)

    While it is a good bet that Sketch will be present in a game Smeargle is made available in, there is no guarantee.
  8. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP 1 - Syclant

    Re First Impression, what mon are there that would switch or attempt to revenge kill Syclant, who are now unable to do so with First Impression's availability? Assuming it's not Choice locked of course. Weavile, Jumbao?
  9. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP7 - Kitsunoh

    As an odd case, all cut Blue TM's from an optic base of Flavour could be kept for this spooky pokemon. Pain Split and Spite I think could be moved from Tutors elsewhere. Hone Claws could be happily swapped in IMHO - perhaps Hone Claws in place of Odor Sleuth (accuracy theme) and Pain Split for...
  10. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP17 - Cawmodore

    Out of interest - why? What is gained flavour wise by having it?
  11. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP25F - Smokomodo

    Does that extend to Flame Charge? I understand and appreciate it is early days for the meta to settle, and these changes are not intentional competitive updates, but is it worth revisiting the exclusion of this move? From the outside looking in, Technician Boosted STAB move with a useful rider...
  12. Gen 8 CAP Updates - CAP 14 - Mollux

    I sincerely doubt that 45 base Attack average 42 BP Non STAB is going to be used as a lure. While the argument for flavour might be there, what match ups can come in here? Even with Rocks up, it requires 5 Hits and Predicting the Switch to OHKO even Hoopa-U with Pin Missile (no investment).

  16. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer (CAP V. 3.0 READ THE OP!)

    Is there any possibility of starting the Yum or Yuck threads 8th edition in the Metagame forum? As it's been so long since the previous, and there's the whole question of the CAP updates to take place, I didn't want to just start it off if there was an intentional delay to starting the threads off.

  18. Ask a Simple Question, Get a Simple Answer (CAP V. 3.0 READ THE OP!)

    Do we know what plans there are RE Capmon in Gen 8? Will it be built on a 'National Dex' or Galar only Dex? Or will it just be OU+CAPMon, and the decision will be left to OU? And have OU made any decision? And is there any where that the news of what the new Generation is bringing and how that...
