    NP: NU Stage 6 - Fn Pig (Emboar banned from NU)

    Good riddance. Jokes aside, this is naturally healthy for the tier at least I believe so despite some saying this will result in fatter styles being more viable. More flexibility beyond using the same 4-5 walls that stop Emboar and a large variety of fire and fighting types aren't straight up...

    NP: NU Stage 6 - Fn Pig (Emboar banned from NU)

    Emboar is the perfect example of a mon that quite literally gets better every shift (Meloetta banned, Barbaracle banned, Seismitoad rise) and at its peak right now feels to a team builder strains teams to a degree like a damn handcuff. After the Seismitoad rise, counterplay to spamming 3 moves...

    NU Socratic Seminars

    I have a few I’d like to hear. Has the tier adapted to Sneasel staying at this point? What was the most ideal meta thus far in SM/USUM NU? Is the tier too matchup based? And a wild theorymon idea; would unbanning anything from BL3 benefit the tier? (cofagrigus might not be terrible as the rest...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Just a small nom this time around: Sceptile to A- It's just excellent at what it does best: spamming leaf storms and having convenient speed tier and coverage. I think after Mow left the tier, Sceptile had already lost one of its larger competitors and after the new drops and shifts (although...

    Good Cores in SM NU

    Oh lord this thread is dead af. I only have fat cores with me. VenuDon or GastroSaur? Anyway this defensive core is an excellent core in the current metagame as it checks many of the top threats right now and compliment each other excellently as well as the fact that both of them have reliable...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Love the VR update but a few changes (also why Absol? However I haven't tinkered with it) Exeggutor-Alola B => B-/C+ Our good ol' tree is a shell of its former self. Ranked B way before the days of Mega-Audino was a thing and now that Aromatisse has pretty much overtaken its spot as the best...

    NU Stage 5: Pursuit Of Happiness

    Alright, I feel as if my initial post in this thread was rather rushed because I did it pre-laddering and wrote it rather quickly on the phone. I've read each and every post in this thread now and kept an open-ear to each opinion anti-ban through out. Post-laddering (I got like 2650 COIL fml but...

    Resource USUM OU ULTRA Viability Ranking Thread

    As much as I love the random wild UR nomination of the week, what keeps Dhelmise from being a poor man’s Starmie? It has bulk and an EQ resistant typing but at least Starmie is arguably more versatile and can soak status, is moderately fast, and can handle most aforementioned threats well...

    NU Stage 5: Pursuit Of Happiness

    I never like to comment on suspectsat least pre-laddering but this is one I definitely been itching and been on the fence on. There’s no lie that Sneasel is one dimensional and has one set with the same moves every time but how it had warped the metagame around it is a little bit ridiculous...

    Getting Over Your Oneitis

    Despite our love for our lovable portable digital friends, some of us might find love in the true world. Some find success while others... others look at what could have been done and have an unhealthy obsession over it. My story is no different; a typical guy meets girl, he thinks they are...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Y'all need to stop nomming things entire ranks unless they're super duper justified Houndoom to stay A- (to counteract the denom) (Side note: CM Z-Dazzling is an unset) Houndoom still holds many valuable neat tricks up its sleeve to hold up against the current metagame. Just in general stuff...

    NU Bazaar: Post your teams here!

    Dual Screens HO aka bootleg Aurora Veil Been tinkering several versions of this team for a while now and at this point, I feel it is reasonably competitive for what it is (might have to update for USUM but the concept still stands well enough). There are many ways you can build this sort...

    NU Stage 4: My Type

    Just messing around with all the nice toys that dropped with USUM and I think I found a hidden gem. Ever wish your Rotom-Mow could beat Druddigon, Vileplume, and Guzzlord? How about still being able to handle Seismitoad, Rhydon, and Steelix? Also doesn't get murked by Sneasel? Hell it can kill...

    NP: NU Stage 3 - The Ugly Barnacle

    My own personal opinion on the state of Defog of NU (feel free to disagree): After giving every single new defogger in USUM a somewhat fair chance (at least I'd say, I tried each one at least 5 times with a dedicated team around them with like the exception of bad silvally forms and ghost...

    NU Viability Rankings

    Sorry on time constraint so no fancy dandy sprites. Sandslash-Alola D => C- or maybe higher but baby steps.. There’s been successes of hail teams here and there whether it’d be room tours or ladder and Sandslash-A is fortunate that Aurorus is a damn good lead and Vanilluxe is an amazing (and...

    Seeded SM NU Tour (Signups Closed)

    In. Info: I’ve beat meeps’ based Raticate Alola team on ladder, I’ve beat pokeaimmd during his road to top 10 NU, got barbarcle reqs, gotten really close to meloetta reqs, won a 28 man room tournament, I’ve probably ate some other good player’s asses and peaked like 3rd on ladder. I used to...
