  1. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 9 - Old Town Road

    Still, my argument stands. I never argued Blace is a better mon in general. It is much easier to revenge kill, is much less bulky overall and has SR weakness as others have pointed out. Blace example was only my response to the plethora of pro-ban argument that were based on the fact that...
  2. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 9 - Old Town Road

    So the thing that bothers me when talking about the sheer power of Spectrier in general is this. It's not like it is the first super strong Ghost type we have ever seen. Blace is stronger and packs a secondary STAB and can run most sets Spectrier can (Sub CM, Scarf, Specs) and also has an...

    Defensive Hydreigon absolutely is an OU set and it was a decent set before Spectrier and in gen 7 same goes for Mandibuzz. Sure, it helps that those two check Spectrier but they aren't used solely for that reason they are generally good pokemon overall. Yes Spectrier is restrictive but there are...

    I feel like Stall really isn't going to get much better in the current meta than it was pre-Urshifu ban contrary to the common belief. I have played Stall quite a bit in that meta trying to get the reqs (and failed) and at least for me, Urshifu was never an issue. Most of the time a ran Rocky...

    Great post overall, but I am not sure whether Kommo is going to be worse than it was now and that it is outclassed by Ace. Kommo is a specially defensive rocker or salac berry sweeper, while cinder is a pivot? Sorry if I am being stupid, but it feels like they are quite a bit different and don't...

    At this point Urshifu has been discussed to death. The entire thing boils down to the question whether urshifu limits teambuilding in a unhealthy way, meaning that you have to run one of the select few checks available such as certain faries, buzzwhole, pex+Dark resist etc. or on the other hand...

    No one is saying that Pex is impossible to win 1v1 against, but the problem is that it is so Hard to make consistent progress in some games due to Pex because it can constantly fish for burns or quickly knock off switch-in's items and Then switch out of unfavorable matchups. Also, if you havent...

    I would like to second the above post, Spectrier definitely doesn't feel nearly as problematic as either Urshifu or Magearna. There are a lot of solid dark types in the tier (Hydreigon, Mandibuzz, Tyranitar) that fit into a lot of teams naturally and unlike other problematic mons its counters do...

    Here is my nomination: :shedinja: shedinja from C- to C The reasons: I know that it is almost entirely used on stall teams that are generally thought of as subpar in the current meta. Nonetheless, it is one of the single best pokemon to use on those teams. 1) It walls Magearna. Magearna is very...

    I have to thank you for these teams. I've tested the last Trap Stall quite extensively and it got me to 1800s pretty easily. I have 1 question tho: what is this hydreigon set specifically for? Other than that it feels like this team can beat pretty much every type of team.

    Sorry for spamming but what would an optimal set look like?

    Can Slowbro-G still be used on HO as a legit threat or is it completely redundant and if its usable what type of HO does it fit in and what are its main partners

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but I genuinely dont understand what niche skarmory has at this point. I know it was originally used in some stall teams but he is a typical defensive mon that gets destroyed by everything that is good vs stall, its outclassed as a defoger by...

    On the ladder I have seen some Hail teams running arctozolt and I can confirm it works on those specific teams and there is also a guy on RMT who got top 10 using vanilluxe+arctozolt so maybe it merits its rating. As for shedinja and especially cobalion I have not seen a team in this meta...
  15. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 5 - Switching Gears

    As someone previously mentioned, the effects on the metagame post potential Magearna ban, or any ban for that matter, must be considered. Just like a doctor must first seek to not harm the patient, we also should not make the metagame awful. By banning certain mons we could easily trigger a...

    I have personally tested TR quite a bit and I think that hard TR is as usual, very niche, especially because Uxie and Cresselia are missing. The way to go in my opinion is some sort of Semi-TR, because stuff like Hatterene and Magearna are pretty good even outside of TR. Now I think you could go...

  19. Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 4 - Fish Out of Water

    Honestly, I think the whole Dracovish discussion boils down to these few things: - Dracovish is a predictable and has a dedicated set of pretty reliable counters such as Seismitoad, Gastrodon, BB Toxapex and plethora of offensive counterplay as well. - However, it pretty much mandates the use...

    Honestly, there are so many flaws in your argument. First and foremost I don't understand why your whole argument is based around Dracovish. They are very much different pokemon with different checks and different counters and fit into completely different team structures. Secondly you state...
