    Those are virtually useless, in my opinion. You'd have to have some really big awards or stacked extracurriculars to think you could get a spot against legacies, private school students, and donors.

    I don't think Flame Charge, Pursuit, Sucker Punch, or Taunt in the 4th slot makes any difference when comparing the two (especially since Salazzle has access to Taunt and Encore too). I'm inclined to agree with geeezer that M-Houndoom is too high for its rank right now. In all fairness, Fire...

    A lot of these calculations predicate on the fact that it gets a +2 up. Against a lot of the tier, its initially low Attack and low Speed makes it hard to force switches to get set-up opportunities except against Pokemon like Swampert or extremely passive Pokemon. With proper team support, I'm...

    Yeah, anything related to getting into college, whether it'd be getting into Undergraduate or Graduate programs

    1) Spore is not mandatory. It's certainly strong tech, but it can be swapped with usable coverage moves like Rock Tomb and Natural Gift. It's still essentially an Offensive Pokemon that can still find set-up opportunities without Spore.

    Quag isn't as crucial to stall as some other Pokemon like Blissey and Alomomola (pif built a Quag-less stall team).

    It's interesting that you add these 5 Pokemon to your list of purported checks. Mega Manectric doesn't really care if Amoonguss walls it because it can just pivot out into a Pokemon that checks Amoonguss in return. Primarinas commonly carry Psychic, so it's not a complete switch-in If I recall...

    I think the game cap was unnecessary in the first place because one could already calculate the minimum number of games needed from required COIL and various values of GXE. Game limits put unnecessary pressure on participants.

    And Euphonos got to top 100 on the ladder using Belly Drum Marill. And pif stayed #1 even when he was using Flash Slowking on his stall teams. What's your point? Just because it's usage-based does not mean it can't be manipulated (either directly or indirectly). Back in Gen V, some people...

    It unfairly affects lower tiers by forcibly removing Pokemon from a metagame because a couple of people decided to meme really hard.

    So does Mega Houndoom. No one would really run 4-Attack Houndoom, if that's what you're implying. I think their Speed stat kind of matters, especially since outspeeding the 115 bracket is infinitely better than speed-tying the bracket (Starmie, Raikou, etc.). Besides, Salazzle has good utility...

    I think B- is fine IMO. Using M-Doom requires you to give up on some really crucial Mega Pokemon that are really crucial to offense (Altaria, Aerodactyl, Manectric). It's only real niche is really as a Nasty Plot sweeper with little to no team utility. It's almost comparable to Mega-Absol in...

    Neither Cress nor Uxie should move. I still think TR is still a very niche playstyle because Stakataka isn't really dependent on other TR setters. In an overall view, TR has become more popular, but not necessarily better (even with Stak and AWak).
