    On: In-Battle Forme Display (Namely Urshifu)

    Genesect is a pretty egregious case of non-functional character design, so Urshifu being more recognisable than it isn’t really saying much. It’s easy enough to spot when you put the two Urshifu formes next to each other and look at each directly, but when actually playing I not only only have...

    On: In-Battle Forme Display (Namely Urshifu)

    There have been a few similar threads about PS! posted here before so I assume this is the right place. Please move it if you'd prefer it in a different forum or whatever. I've faced quite a lot of Urshifu over the past few weeks, and every so often I come across a weird situation where I play...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v5 (usage in post #547)

    I wrote this all late at night a day or two ago, so I have no idea how coherent it is (especially towards the end), but Im gonna post anyway bc I don’t want the writing time to go to waste. Toxapex is a cancerous lump that's been slowly maturing for one-and-a-bit generations now, and I really...

    Smogon Cooking Thread 2

    I used 600g white bread flour to 75g wholemeal bread flour, though for a smaller loaf I’ve used 425g white to 75 wholemeal. I don’t rlly know much about yeast but the packet I used says easy bake on it—doubt there’s much difference between it and any other. Make sure to leave it in the fridge...

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread

    You can read up on the formula specifics and how we came to use the GXE (Glicko X-Act Estimate) in this Policy Review thread (the forumla is in the second code box), but to sum up what the data actually represents: GXE's literal definition is: the probability that you win against a player with...

    Mechanics Sword & Shield Battle Mechanics Research

    I was reading the Bulbapedia article for Corrosive Gas and came across this: Does “can not obtain another item” also apply to Trick and Switcharoo, or is it just for cases like Symbiosis, Pickup, etc.? And if not, how do they interact? (I.e. is the item itself disabled or does the target become...

    PP stalling with Leppa+Recycle doesn’t count towards endless battle clause unless you try to actively stop your opponent fainting by using Heal Pulse. Simple PP stalling is very much legal.

    Walrus Epic gamer boy Walrus - Cat 2 reveal Friday 17th 8 PM BST

    Everyone welcome Andy Snype to the walrus. He retro-subbed Shakira - Waka Waka for category 1 and scored 6. Preface for round 2: This category was a bit of a disaster by design in hindsight. Luckily most of you just sent stuff with samples from other songs instead of my dumbass self-sample...
