    Metagame Suicide Cup

    I ended up being encouraged by Ho3nConfirm3d today to post some post-Home VR nominations, so here I go. This is my first time doing VR nominations period, and I hope I did well. These nominations notably attempt to keep the power levels of the currently posted VR tiers, but I'm actually shaky on...

    Metagame Suicide Cup

    Ended up brainstorming some Gen 8 NatDex Suicide Cup sets if you're interested. I put my post in the NatDex Other Metas thread and quoted it here: I didn't mention them in the quote, but I believe Latias has a niche for being a Heal Pulse and Roar user who's immune to Sticky Web, and despite...

    National Dex Other Metagames Megathread

    For you Suicide Cup fans out there, I figured that I may as well try to assemble some Gen 8 NatDex-only Suicide Cup sets that still have niches in the Gen 8 Suicide Cup meta. Warning: this list is long. :smeargle: Smeargle @ Mental Herb Ability: Own Tempo EVs: 252 Spe Jolly Nature IVs: 0 HP...

    Metagame Trademarked

    Well, last month was fun! This is one of the best Gen 8 Trademarked teams I made back when this was Leader's Choice of the Month. I'm hoping this will be considered for sample teams: Importable: https://pokepast.es/5fc07ded73ee25ad :togekiss: Togekiss @ Heavy-Duty Boots Ability: encore EVs...

    Parroting 2 [Won by Da Letter El!]

    ajhockeystar My username isn't in the Round 2 Question 3 results list (I did answer with the ace of "7"; I'm the youngest in a family with several generations of video game consoles).

    Parroting 2 [Won by Da Letter El!]

    I'm surprised nobody answered Zacian to "Question 2: Which Fairy-type Pokémon doesn’t seem at all like a fairy?"

    Metagame Trademarked

    I honestly prefer a devoted TR setter Jirachi like this: :jirachi: Jirachi @ Choice Scarf Ability: trickroom EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpD / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Trick - U-turn - Healing Wish - Meteor Mash / Wish / Reflect / Light Screen / Toxic / Stealth Rock Slow pivots are better than fast pivots...

    Metagame Suicide Cup

    Pokemon Home dropped, Silvally got Defog back, Liepard got Prankster back, Magic Coat's distribution skyrocketed, and here are some Suicide Cup sets that have come out to play: :zeraora: Zeraora @ Toxic Orb Ability: Volt Absorb EVs: 252 Spe Hasty Nature IVs: 0 HP / 0 Atk / 0 Def / 0 SpA / 0 SpD...

    Metagame Trademarked

    I've been running this similar set right now, though I find it doesn't feel too OP: Grapploct @ Leftovers Ability: topsyturvy EVs: 248 HP / 8 Def / 252 SpD Careful Nature - Octolock - Circle Throw - Ice Punch - Drain Punch At the very least, I recommend a filler attack that...

    Metagame Trademarked

    I think drampa's grandpa puts the new counterplay best: The biggest name here is Dragapult and its Dragon Darts, although Toxtricity gets an honourable mention for having Boomburst at least some of the time. (Admittedly, pretty much none of its trademarks are Overdrive-friendly.) Kommo-o and...

    Other Metagames [BH] HEAVEN'S WRATH [PEAK #2, 90.4% GXE]

    I'm wondering what Imposter calcs the Darm-G-Z with Prankster, 252 Def EVs, and 0 Def IVs is aiming for. Wouldn't a combination that barely guarantees the KO on the fattest legal Imposter be the best? (And I suspect that combination wouldn't be a 252/0 split.)

    Metagame Trademarked

    Looking forward to trying a Rocks setter Kommo-o like this: Kommo-o @ Leftovers Ability: Clangorous Soul EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe Jolly Nature - Stealth Rock - Drain Punch - Poison Jab / Iron Head - Dragon Claw / Outrage / Taunt / Substitute Note that Drain Punch is in so it...

    BH Balanced Hackmons

    According to the Gen 8 Pure Hackmons thread: The return of Zacian-C spam? 2 Zamazenta-Cs on half of teams? I've prodded the research thread for confirmation simply because it'll completely shake up BH all over again.

    Can we independently confirm this? I found this in the Pure Hackmons thread, but this is huge for both Pure and Balanced Hackmons.

    Mechanics Sword & Shield Battle Mechanics Research

    Can we confirm this with more in-game footage? If regular (i.e. non-Dynamaxed) Imposter Ditto fails to trigger against all Zacian/Zamazenta/Eternatus (especially all forms), then this is huge for both Balanced Hackmons and Pure Hackmons.

    Making sure (relevant for Suicide Cup): a Taunted Dynamaxed mon with only status moves/Max Guard will be forced to use Struggle, correct?

    Other Metagames neon impasse [usum bh]

    Partially so you write up something slightly better for your Imposter Chansey... Why does it have 55 Happiness? What damage/KO thresholds does it hit with Return/Frustration with that Happiness?

    BH Balanced Hackmons

    How much does Simple really buff No Retreat, though? Even on low ladder, I've seen No Retreat get Spectral Thiefed all the time, and I believe I've seen it get Topsy-Turvyed once.

    The Gen 8 Balanced Hackmons players are prompting this: Does Fur Coat (or, heck, Fluffy) boost Body Press?
