    I'd like to echo this cuz dear god Flygon has really fallen off with Haxorus being gone. I still think that Flygon is atleast B+ material, since ground stab + U-turn + 100 in both attack stats are pretty good qualities, but overall it's just not strong enough, although saying that it hits like a...

    Thought I'd bring up some things that interest me. Sylveon A+ ---> S Disagree Sylveon is a pretty good mon in the current metagame, but I just don't think that it's an S tier mon. To me, an S tier mon is a mon that practically defines the metagame. Maybe it's the problem of SS UU not...

    Thanks for the help! Tried out Exeggcute and was kinda disapointed, speaks less about Exeggcute and more about just how meh the grass types are. I was kinda sad about Explosion being illegal with Moonlight and Synthesis but whatever, healing isn't really super necessary on an offensive team...

    Hey I was just wondering which of the grass types is the most viable? I've been playing around with Tangela for awhile and it's been mediocre. Maybe I'm just using a bad moveset (sleep, synthesis, giga and hp fire), but it's kinda disapointing defensively aswell. I've tried out Sunflora and it's...

    I'm sorry, but this "argument" had me dying of laughter. Finch is trying to be reasonable, only to be hit with a "wow bro the way you write i'd almost believe you convinced yourself that any of the above is true" I was just fucking rolling like holy shit

    My though process I wanted to build a sun team that could beat rain while also not folding completely to sand, banded Darmanitan and some of the more common dragons. I wanted to give the team my own twist to make it less boring but I'm not sure if it's really a good team. I've been playing...

    I do think that dracovish is pretty unhealthy for the metagame. It has an extremely spammable stab move that blows past most resists and it also has alot of defensive utility. That speed is the only reason for why I don't think it's broken, but I do think that it's unhealthy for the metagame...

    I was expecting drill to be nr 1 in all of the categories. I guess ditto being nr 1 makes sense in the 1800s, but dragapult being nr1 in both the 1500s and 1600s makes no sense imo, drill being nr 4 in both is weird aswell.

    I'd swap Darmanitan > ditto and rotom wash > hawlucha but I agree with pretty much everything else.

    In my opinion the moves and the boosts dynamaxing provides are the problem. The only good the level nerf would do would be making it harder to use dynamaxing to stop other dynamaxed mons. Obviously it'd also make it harder to safely dynamax, but to my knowledge most of the abusers don't have a...

    While I do agree with that volc is overrated as hell (A rank for a mon with a bunch of flaws that is useless offensively without setup), I still think that B+ is way too low. A- at most, and even then bulky volc is still pretty decent (though psychic Z is the best by far imo). It has uses on all...

    Small nitpick, Sableye is already B+. I do think that it should stay in B+ and not go to A- because it's basically just a stall mon. It's hard locked to stall and barely sees any play outside of that. A mon that's only really good on one team archetype shouldn't be A- unless said archetype is...

    The fact that some of the best qualities of Hydreigon, Spdef Tapu-Bulu and Kommo-o are that they can offensively check Ash-Greninja is a huge reason for why they are such good pokemon (bulu less so imo but still). Tapu Fini would also have much less usage since it's the only mon that defensively...

    I'd also like to give my opinion on a few rises and drops I think are well deserved. Keldeo C+ --> C Agree Keldeo is just mediocre, it's stabs that used to be extremely spammable are anything but that and the nerf to burn made old checks like Amoongus even harder to punish. It's also almost...

    Ash gren doesn't *need* team support to function, as it can support itself with spikes and such and is an absolute menace if rain's up. But it doesn't need rain to be good, it just abuses rain to become even better than it already is. I wouldn't call it "flat out weak" before it evolves, since...

    The main problem I see with "there are so many ash gren checks" is that ash gren can just spike on the switch, which is a huge pain for bulkier teams. Sure, it requires prediction, which is pretty mediocre, but the fact that it's such a big threat to most mons in the tier makes it pretty easy to...

    I'd like to give my opinion of a few rises that I agree with. Venusaur UR --> C-/C Agree I really don't like sun, but the posts above have changed my mind on it. I still don't like sun much as a team archetype, but I do think that venusaur itself is viable as a sun sweeper. The combination...

    My problem with cofagrigus is that it doesn't do much aside from checking knock off less physical attackers. It gets crippled insanely easily and will usually get chipped to death, which is why I don't see how it counters mega medi. It can only switch in on mega medi 2 times before getting KO'd...

    Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    I disagree with this post heavily, mainly because Cofagrigus barely beats most physical setup mons in the tier, which is it's main niche over the other physical walls in the tier. Sure, it beats most of the physical scarfers and non knock off megas, but that's about it and there are much better...
