    I don't know if this really counts as a double post since the last post was Sunday but sorry if it is! What advantages does Timburr have over Mienfoo aside from more reliable priority in Mach Punch? It seems to me that Mienfoo has everything a fighting type in this tier really wants, so I'm not...

    I definitely meant to say Wingull and Carvhana... it's been one of those weeks, I guess :psyduck: That does make sense though. Thanks!

    Is Froakie not viable in LC? It seems like it would be (I'm new to LC so I don't know) but it maxes out at 17 speed which seems to be below average for a mon that doesn't really have too much bulk. If I had to guess it's generally just outclassed by Wingull and Pelipper, but I'm not sure...

    Hey guys! I've been out of competitive mons for a while but I think I wanna get back into it. I know in previous gens there was a threat to post replays of games so people could help you figure out how to improve as a battler. I didn't see one now, but is that something that could potentially...

    Tapu Fini @ Leftovers Ability: Misty Surge EVs: 248 HP / 248 Def / 12 Spe Bold Nature - Calm Mind - Scald - Moonblast - Taunt There's an analysis for this set and I'm really curious as to how it will function in this meta. It's an interesting wincon against bulkier teams. I don't have any meta...

    Volcarona Overview Volcarona has always been one of those Pokemon that’s been so close to competitive relevance, but it’s always been missing something. Something to let it burst through would-be checks, when all it needs is one extraordinarily powerful move to secure a sweep. If only...

    OU Spotlight: Landorus-T

    I don't mean to be "that guy" but EdgeQuake is technically resisted by Breloom, Torterra, Virizion, and Chesnaught. Those aren't all relevant in OU, but you said EdgeQuake hit every single Pokemon neutrally, and it doesn't. Really good article otherwise!

    I'm not sure when Chandelure would be used that Gengar or Marowak wouldn't be any better, honestly. Gengar is a faster specially offensive ghost (with arguably a better secondary STAB now that Bisharp is less common) and Marowak uses its defensive typing more efficiently. I guess Chandelure has...

    The thing about Xurkitree is that Thunderbolt itself doesn't have good enough coverage for Xurkitree to run a Z-Status + Tail Glow set, because then it only gets one more coverage move, which will probably go to one of Dazzling Gleam, Energy Ball, or Hidden Power Ice. None of those give strong...

    What is Dragonite's Electrium Z set? I've seen it mentioned a few times but I don't know what it's supposed to do.
