    As Healing Wish has been shown to now wait for a target that can be healed, going on standby for as long as the current pokemon slot is occupied by something at full health, is this also the case for a regular Wish? Or will that still attempt to heal even fully healed targets? Healing Wish only...

    Seeing how good Freeze-Dry is in the current meta, I wonder if our weaker tao trio dragon won't become a bit too good for SwSh OU. Kyurem-B is already a dead ringer for getting banned this time and that's merely because DDance + Icicle Spear got added to Kyurem's learnset via TM/TR, and base can...

    I suppose I can live with a ban to Ubers - that's one less "clause" to see pop up at the start of every match on PS at least. Poor Octillery tho. This feels like the Arena Trap bans from the past where you can't even use Arena Trap Trapinch anywhere but Ubers. :bloblul:

    Octillery also lacks Disable, so it can't prevent anyone from destroying sub on the turn it can't Protect, whittling down its health much quicker (where Glalie can Disable-stall for Leftovers HP) So yeah, I agree - if any ban is made, it should be to Glalie, not Moody.

    So someone showed this set to me and it looks very promising as a late-game cleanup sweeper: Accelgor @ Throat Spray Ability: Unburden EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Modest Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Bug Buzz - Energy Ball - Focus Blast - Sludge Bomb After using Bug Buzz once, you're...

    The SubDisable Dragapult set made me far more worried about Sub than Moody Glalie ever did in its short time since being un-banned. SubDisable Dragapult is 10x worse since Hyper Voice/Boomburst can't even hit it thanks to its typing and Dragapult is an actual threat already, which Glalie is...

    Might not be my place to talk about this, since I'm just a low ladder semi-casual, but on the subject of Moody clause, I'm a bit baffled why running just one sub-breaking mon or move per team (which would also completely bypass half the issue with SubProtect Moody Glalie) isn't a solution...

    Toxic ignores accuracy checks and hits through semi-invulnerability like Dig/Fly/Bounce when used by a Poison-type.

    So I was browsing a "unlisted effects" thread on Reddit from a few hours ago and my eyes fell on this thread within: https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/e11fvi/fun_fact_toxic_when_used_by_posion_type_never/f8lrhuw In short: Do Ghost type moves now hit through semi-invulnerable states...

    Hold on. That list says Knock Off doesn't work vs DMax, is that true? That's quite a big nerf to Knock Off in the current meta, and it does still work on Showdown currently...

    https://pokepast.es/a86795063f697e6a I generally lead with Gallade, who threatens some common leads like TTar, Pelipper, or suicide Exca, letting it set up the Hypnosis Blunder Policy for free - preferably missing for the speed, and otherwise putting whoever the counter they sent out is to...

    So, at first glance, Blunder Policy is a meme item that has people trying to make work with things like Inferno. Essentialy, you give up one move slot for an otherwise useless move to get +2 speed, and then if it hits and doesn't give you your speed, you're probably dead on the next turn. But...

    How does Copycat interact with Max Moves? Does it cause the user (not Dmax'd itself) to use the Max move, the base move, or does it simply fail?

    I don't see the Eeveelutions on here yet. Stuff like Chlorophyll Adamant/Jolly Leafeon is very nice for the rare sun teams for example, especially now that it has Solar Blade over Leaf Blade.

    I don't see a good reason to not run a bulky attack Centiskorch - it's speed is too low to abuse, and unlike Frosmoth, it doesn't get a speed boosting setup move. The only speed it should have invested is just enough to outspeed specific mons assuming it even needs that, with the rest in HP to...

    Something I wanna ask, most people are of the consensus that Dmax should be banned, or its at least a very prevalent opinion. But what about Gmax specifically? Most of the Gmax mons aren't mons people really use often (Gengar notwithstanding) - when's the last time you've seen a Butterfree or...

    It was working yesterday on showdown, although working as in; it actually dealt the damage it felt like it should be doing - I have no idea if it's working entirely correctly under the hood, as its wording makes it a bit ambiguous between being like Foul Play (just straight using your defense...
