    Resource [Crown Tundra] Sword/Shield BSS Viability Rankings

    I do agree with a lot that is said by the above posts, some of the suggestions such as Glastrier to A I have echoed myself. That being said, I also think you can make similar arguments that have been made above for Zapdos for Celesteela which is why I wouldn't agree to a straight up swap, where...

    BSS Battle Stadium Singles 2020 Invitational - Round 1

    Since Bobochan is dead, I shall take his place and do some predicts (mainly because I'm bored). (5) greilmercenary9 vs TectonicDestroyer (12) I don't think Greil is as far ahead of the curve as last generation, some of that is others catching up and new blood, other parts is because of the...

    I've updated the speed tiers of new pokemon for the Crowned Tundra Metagame, I've done the top 75 pokemon based off Cart usage currently. It's not all inclusive but I just used some of the most common EV spreads/natures. Feel free to add them into the main table whenever. [/SPOILER]

    A pokemon as well rounded and as excellent as Tapu Fini has very few counters that straight up just OHKO it or force it out in every situation and it is a solid bring in almost every game. That's what makes it such a staple when it comes to BSS. The traditional way to deal with Fini is just to...

    hg32 8 Attack Hippowdon is merely quickly copying the OU spread where they put the spare 8 EVs into Attack, the calc is exactly the same as 0 attack EVs. I do like the utility of leftovers against stallier teams since 4 turns will overall out-recover sitrus berry and in which case you either...

    One thing that I don't think has been mentioned yet which could further the case of Spectrier is Taunt. My current preferred set the follows: Spectrier @ Leftovers Ability: Grim Neigh Level: 50 EVs: 12 HP / 196 Def / 68 SpA / 44 SpD / 188 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Shadow Ball - Dark Pulse...

    If you are going to consider that EV spread, I'd advise to put extra EV in spdef for the P2 download number. It's especially important with mence due to being 4x Weak to Ice Beam.

    On S-: I think that the five pokemon mentioned in S are clearly the five best in the game at current and there is a pretty big fall off between these five and the rest of the cast. I think there is a big difference between the strength of something like Mimikyu or Tapu Fini or Celesteela which...

    Had another brief skim today. The below is just my personal opinion as it is so early in based on just games and theorycrafting so don't take it as fact. Celesteela: Dragonite: Glastrier: Heatran: Landorus-T: Mamoswine: Mimikyu: Moltres-G: Naganadel: Pheromosa...

    Not really a question that has an easy answer. Personally I dislike it to the point where it was a large part of the reason I quit playing Gen 8 BSS, at least until recently where I have been dabbling a little into the Crowned Tundra metagame. I still dislike it for a multitude of reasons, some...

    Hello, it is Ika here coming back after a long hiatus to talk a bit about an archetype I've been messing around with on Pokemon Showdown for the Crowned Tundra expansion. I am talking about the obnoxious combination of dual screens and trick room to take advantage of the strengths of two new...

    I'd assume Magearna will be extremely strong. Soul Heart is just an S tier ability in doubles, great base stats and amazing typing. I can only imagine dynamax makes it even better.

    Drapion - Poison [QC 0/2] [GP 0/1]

    I'll drop the analysis so anyone else is free to pick it up, it is 5 months past written for pre isle armor meta and I've quit competitive mons and honestly I forgot about it so I don't think Im in tune enough with the meta to make commentary.

    Gen 1 Smogon Staff vs The RBY Community

    I definitely agree with quite a lot being said here. I too believe it is true that some of these sites did/do, at least originally, aim to create a community for a scene that was neglected on Smogon outside of Smogon. I would also say that there definitely does exist some malice, for valid or...

    Gen 1 Smogon Staff vs The RBY Community

    I feel that the criteria used was bad which is part of the reason why posts like this are being made. One can definitely point to examples of players who did not get onto the list such as Alpha Male Psyduck who are heavily entrenched into the RBY community but haven't played many of the Smogon...

    IkaToday at 12:59 PM is liechi actually going to be any good, those sorts of strategies seem a tad gimmicky because they are obvious (I mean you have to sub 3 times) and unlike last generation where you couldnt really break a sub and get faster (I guess char-x flame charge), max airstream is...

    RBY Counter

    I'm perplexed by the argument though that Counter should be banned to stay true to Cartridge because I'm not sure that RBY OU is anything even slightly similar to the experience on Cartridge. For example, another thing that can cause a Desync on Cartridge that isn't replicated on Showdown is...
