    Now that Tyrantrum has been ranked, shouldn't it be getting an analysis?

    ORAS OU Alternia (Zard X Hyper Offense)

    Okay, I'm gonna try this and see what happens. Though I do fear what might happen if I remove my two hardest hitting pokemon. Or do I have enough wallbreaking power already? I might probably need Psyshock over TBolt on Starmie if I don't wanted to be destroyed by Keldeo and Mega Venu now. But...

    ORAS OU Alternia (Zard X Hyper Offense)

    Hello. This is the RMT of my first serious attempt at a successful team in ORAS OU. I took a break from pokemon sometime in the middle of XY, and now I'm trying to get to the high ladder again. This team recently broke the 1600s and got to the top 200 in the ladder, but I want to get higher, so...

    Let me fix some things: Mega Charizard X: Still a check. Mega Mawile: What? Mawile can just spam Sucker Punch over and over, the attack reduction doesn't work if Aegis uses KS because it's not a damage move. Azumarill: Belly Drum Azumarill can still set up on its face. Clefable: Calm Mind +...

    I'm not in the mood for looking for the posts, but as I've seen multiple people here saying before, the true goal of the meta is competitiveness. Diversity is just a sympton of that, but shouldn't be the final goal.

    Other Pokemon: Smogon Version OU [Route 4]

    I'm not insulting anyone, but these guys are known "enemies of Smogon", if there is such thing. I have nothing personal against them, though. DeniSsS would probably find it hilarious.

    Aegislash is overcentralizing, I don't think there is any doubt about that. But I don't think that is a reason for a ban. The meta revolves around it, so what? A lot of things check it, it's not that hard to beat, it doesn't win entire matches just by being on a team.

    Other Pokemon: Smogon Version OU [Route 4]

    Suggestion: make the evil team's leader Versilify (that guy with a youtube channel who likes to bash smogon and propose "creative" sets). Or DeniSsSsS

    I am of the opinion that no playstyle is sacred, nor it needs to be eliminated. The meta itself should decide what playstyles will be allowed to survive. Banning things to limit what each kind of player can do is just an artificial way of balancing the game that makes it less competitive. If...

    I don't now what you about, at least where I am (above the 1200), there is A LOT of stall. Amoongus is everywhere, even though it's not needed to counter Aegis. Skarmory is everywhere, specially since Mandibuzz is way less common. Pure stall teams with Skarmblissvenutramquagsire are gone, but...

    EQ on Mega TTar is not suboptimal. It allows you to beat: - Opposing TTar - Terrakion - Weakened Keldeo - Azumarill if you are running Crunch instead of Stone Edge - Bisharp - Excadrill if you are running Stone Edge instead of Crunch - Pretty much anything if you are running Stone Edge and...

    Guys, one thing, if you remove a pokemon that has over 20% usage, OF COURSE the ladder is going to be different. Banning a pokemon because it will make the game "feel different" is not right. If that's a criterium, then we have to ban things every few months just to make the meta different. Oh...

    Pokémon Diancie

    Interesting fact about Diancie: it resists both Dragon and Fire, so it can be a counter to any Charizard X lacking EQ.

    One word: Skarmory. It's the entire reason Pinsir wants to use CC over EQ. Heatran makes no difference because it's weak to both. The only flying resist that is weak to EQ but not CC is Aegislash.

    Thoughts on the suspect ladder: - Medicham and Gardevoir aren't as common as initially believed. I mean, more common than before, but teams are prepared for them, and Aegislash isn't the only thing that can fight them. - Heracross is nowhere to be seen, because: - BIRDSPAM. BIRDSPAM EVERYWHERE...

    np: XY OU Suspect Testing Round 5 - Ghost of Perdition

    The problem is not so much the types, it's the megas. Gardevoir and Medicham are only sitting at B+ rank because Aegislash exists, is almost a counter to the former and a counter to the later. Mega Pinsir would love to use Close Combar or Stone Edge and get rid of those pesky birds, but can't...

    "Making the meta better" is an argument that has been used by the pro-ban side, and "keeping other pokemon in check" is a counter-argument for that. You can't argue on the basis that the meta will be better w/o Aegislash if 5 pokemon have to be banned with it to prevent it from breaking. It's...

    I fail to see why the meta necessarily needs to become less offensive, though. It should be balanced and competitive, but being more or less offensive is something that should be natural.

    So it begins. Let me start it simple fact: Aegislash is the best pokemon in the metagame. Period. If there was an S+ rank, Aegislash would be the first, and probably the only mon to deserve it. It's even better than the recently banned deoxys formes, although those were in my opinion more...
