    I know Hitmonlee with Curse and Unburden used to be a somewhat good set back in gen 7... but, why, for the love of God, does it get a sitrus berry?

    Araquanid without Sticky Web is a terrible set, let it be known.

    Psychic/Psyshock-less Alolan Raichu makes Dracorage go something something... Crazy? For real tho, Psyshock should be an option over Psychic. I had no way to hit grass types today without relying on Focus Miss.

    I don't think limiting choice items to 3 mons on the same team is unreasonable. Dynamax provides a way to turn those choice items into advantages down the line, and while it is true that a team with 3-4 choice items can be salvaged by high level play, it is also true that a lot of mons with...

    Some things to adress that I have seen lately - Rapidash doesn't need Heavy Duty Boots, it benefits far more from Life Orb or Band - AFAIK, Rapidash doesn't currently have a band set, tho. It's already frail enough and it needs as much power as it needs. Boots provides no benefit in a mon that...

    The issue with grass types having 3 grass types moves and an additional support move/weak attack was already common, as seen with previous versions of Venusaur (Leech Seed/Sleep Powder/Substitute/Giga Drain) or Whimsicott (Encore/Leech Seed/Energy Ball/Stun Spore), and it was acknowledged as a...

    I picked water/flying mons as a simple example. There's more prominent targets, and particularly, ALL WATER TYPES to be worried about when you're locked into ice beam. In random battles strong coverage > strong moves 100% of the time.

    Kyurem is lately getting ice beam instead of freeze dry. Ice Beam is an inferior option 90% of the time, the added damage isn't worth it being locked into, instead of hitting Water/Flying mons like Gyarados and Mantine super-effectively.

    Why is Eldegoss without Rapid Spin a thing? This guy is basically a joke mon in randoms format, at least with spin it can do something on your team, aside from MAYBE putting to sleep something.

    Assault Vest Duraludon is a decisively trash set - you can try to change my opinion tho, at least it hits hard, unlike the other Assault Vest trashmon - Blastoise. With Rapid Spin, Scald, Ice Beam and EQ and 80 offenses, this set barely hits anything hard, unless the opponent is stupid enough to...

    Tapu Bulu with Stone Edge/Play Rough/Bulk Up/Close Combat. WHERE'S MY GRASS STAB, HONEY?

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    Body Press hitting darks is irrelevant if they can survive 2-3 hits, setup and then wreck the rest of your team, same for the Psychic and Iron Head combination. If you guys REALLY, REALLY want an attacking bronzong set, setup conditions to reject Toxic and Leftovers so it gets trick room and...

    Why, in the love of God, is this "attacking" set for Bronzong even a thing? Body Press/Iron Head/Psychic/Toxic with leftovers. Not only is Bronzong weak enough it won't be hitting hard except 4x weaknesses, quite honestly it takes away from far more useful roles like screens, stealth rock...

    Well at least now they decreased Galarian Mr Mime level to 88

    Pokemon Sword & Shield Random Battle Sets

    Facing it multiple times, as well as getting it a few times in ladder, it's becoming clear to me that level 90 Galarian Mr Mime is broken AF. It has the same BST as normal Mr Mime BUT also the ability to use eviolite, making it unreasonably bulky AND speedy. 231 standard speed is crazy, it...

    Delibird at least has enough speed to get off 1 single spikes, rapid spin, freeze dry or memento, making it a nice suicide mon. Farfetch'd definitely needs to be level 88-90 in order to do anything at all.

    Having a chance to get No Guard Choice Band Machamp without Dynamic Punch is shitty - Conkeldurr and Obstagoon are much better Guts abusers, Machamp most unique set is No Guard Dynamic Punch. I feel like making it Conkeldurr 2.0 is a disservice to the mon, not to mention the chance of what I...

    Ludicolo already gets Focus Blast on certain life orb sets. Rain Dance Weather Ball Jolteon was a thing until some days ago, haven't gotten it recently so IDK if it's still the case. The reasoning for Body Slam on Arctovish is purely getting off the para so it can wreck something with Fishious...

    It's starting to become really apparent that half the sets of grass types are leech seed/powder move/status move and energy ball/giga drain. This is horrible lol.
