    Gen 3 ADV Sand Veil

    I don't feel so strongly about Sand Veil that I think it is a "Positive Force,"(I don't think I'm really being that dramatic) and I don't think it is good nor bad for there to be more teams that punish passive teams. I just don't think we should be in a hurry to ban anything. I understand the...

    Gen 3 ADV Sand Veil

    Just to clarify a few things from my post since I don't specifically disagree with much of what you're saying: I mentioned that they're UU/NU Pokemon to emphasize that they're dependent on the misses to be effective in OU. Sometimes the misses come at opportune times. Sometimes the misses come...

    Gen 3 ADV Sand Veil

    Pokemon is a game that has variance built into it, perhaps more than we like to acknowledge at times. Appreciate vapi posting the stats regarding the chances to generate free turns, and everyone else trying to pick apart differences between Serene Grace and Sand Veil, Brightpowder and Sand Veil...

    Gen 3 ADV Viability Ranking (OU)

    this is not really too important but I think hariyama is significantly better than machamp in adv ou and it's probably historically more common in ou as well. it can get more bulk out of its stats, even without thick fat, and whirlwind and knock off are pretty decent utility moves (since neither...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    i will agree that zam is a better lead overall than the egg. but you were saying that eggy is a bad lead and there's not a benefit to leading it against zam which is what i was trying to refute because that's a lil silly. i was not trying to call you out on this or anything i was literally...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    yeah i realize why dodrio is a great lead (i still think in fact that it's better than starmie as a lead but of course starmie warrants a slot on your team moreso than dodrio always) hence why it is so high on my list. i suppose persian is actually just really bad as a lead. i was just trying...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    i was mostly going off of omanyte's suggestion there. as far as i can tell it only sort of serves to maybe scare off zam and jynx and some anti-lead things. but obviously it's pretty horrible against gengar. i guess putting persian to sleep feels kind of unfulfilling. i guess it kind of works in...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    i think he is pointing to the fact that zam can stay in against anything that puts it to sleep and probably wake up and beat it/recover/whatever without having to worry. jynx is probably the worst to face in that sense, especially if it has rest. but also, @Dre if you "just lead zam anyway" and...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    it's certainly not as good as jynx, but to say it's "not good" is kind of silly. sleep powder is the most reliable sleep move you can use, and egg is easily better than gar, starmie, and hypno... also if gar and especially starmie were as common as zam, and hypnosis were not shitty as hell, that...

    Gen 1 Lead Tier List

    tauros and jolteon are bad ideas for leads. they're definitely not better than articuno because they have no notably "great" opening machups. plus they're better off saved for lategame. it'd be illadvised to hyperbeam jynx turn 1 with tauros but it's not such a big deal to do it with something...
