    Gen 1 RBY NU (Pre-Alph) Viability Ranking

    To elaborate on why Tangela is considered in UU currently, it is in a weird spot where, from the games I have used it in, it has shown itself to be better in UU than everything else not currently in UU. Acting as a counter to Pokemon like Dugtrio, Electabuzz, Raichu, and a check to Persian...

    Gen 1 RBY NU (Pre-Alph) Viability Ranking

    To elaborate on why Golduck is banned, at the dawn of NU when the first games were being played, it was considered top tier but not the best in the tier, that title initially fell to Moltres since, back then, people didn't run that many Pokemon which were faster than Moltres and since we didn't...

    Gen 1 RBY UU Viability Ranking

    Hi everyone, after some delay (sorry about that, a combination of work, some technical issues, and losing most of the writeup due to me forgetting to save caused the month-long delay) I finished the writeup for the results of the UU survey. Main Takeaways: Most of the respondents play the tier...

    Gen 1 An Introduction to Teambuilding in RBY OU

    Thanks for the positive feedback, I appreciate it. To answer your questions, generally Rest is the better option on Cloyster since both 2 of Hyper Beam's main targets (Alakazam and Starmie) are much more careful about avoiding paralysis which makes sniping them with Hyper Beam much less viable...

    Gen 1 An Introduction to Teambuilding in RBY OU

    Eggyless Teams When building teams without Exeggutor, it isn’t hard to fill most roles Exeggutor fills with other Pokemon, there are other sleep spreaders, other Psychic-types, and other exploders, but there is one role which no other Pokemon in the tier can fill anywhere near as well as...

    Gen 1 RBY UU Viability Ranking

    So after way too much delay (sorry about that), we have finally put out a survey to gather some data from the UU player base. The survey will be closing on July 5th. While this is going on some work will be put into getting some general tier analyses up for UU such as a Metagame Threatlist, Role...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #581]

    While yes I do agree the solutions are not ideal, the main goal was to promote food for thought and to make people consider other alternative methods for dealing with Dracovish, with that said I would like to clarify some of my main points. First of all, the main point I wanted to illustrate...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #581]

    I personally beg to disagree, Dracovish is a powerful wallbreaker but one that has quite a lot of counterplay which you are not acknowledging, many more exploitable weaknesses and counters than just a water absorber and a large amount of high tier, common, checks. The first thing we need to...
