    Announcement SM OU Suspect Process, Round 2 - Dirt

    I tend to not like getting involved in suspect discussions for the most part, but there is one argument from the pro-ban crowd that I feel is misinformed: That is, the notion that Dugtrio does not have counter-play. Sure once mole comes in on a Pokemon it can OHKO, there's nothing you can do...

    Project Ubers Teambuilding Competition (Resuming Monday)

    Sigh... I thought it was obvious but I guess I should've added it to the description. The whole point of choosing a max physical bulk investment Xerneas over the standard Geomancy variant is to deal with a boosted Mega Salamence who can easily take advantage of Solgaleo as setup bait. +1 252+...

    Please tell me you're joking. Scolipede Baton Pass teams are strong enough as is. Adding another Speed Boost passer with vastly superior offensive potential is just asking for trouble. Plus that "120 physical attack and 110 special attack [which] are pretty meh for OU" is backed by 120/130 STABs...

    But intangibles hurr durr. Toews wasn't even the worst player on the list either, that distinction belongs to Joe "never finished top 10 in points even once" Nieuwendyk.

    A ---> A+ Move it up. I'm not sure why it was placed in A to begin with. It's supposed movepool issues are far overblown as it has more than enough tools to play with to threaten most of the tier. And while it dies to a summer breeze, it's status as the fastest U-turner allows it to get out of...

    SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    Just dropping by to congratulate our friend Staraptor for continuing it's streak. It's consistency is remarkable, Wayne Gretzky like even, having been sent to BL for 4 straight generations. The event is pretty much tradition at this point. Here's a toast to the eagle and hopefully we'll have the...

    Matt Tkachuk is one of the most classless players to ever step on an NHL ice rink. That's 2 players he's injured off dirty slewfoots to go along with the multiple cheapshots/attempted headshots he's delivered and he's barely even played half a season. He's actually even worse than a player like...

    Huh? What meta are you playing? I don't think I've seen a single serious team that doesn't pack Stealth Rock. I will agree that setting up hazards is a lot more difficult than before with so much offensive pressure to contend with, but it's huge for preventing volt-turners from just having their...

    Can't complain about Aegis being gone, but due to it's immense role compression, pretty much every team out there is now obsolete and we're going to have to find new ways to combat speedy versatile attackers like Pheromosa and Latios, as well as powerful offensive nukes like Tapu Lele and...

    I've been on the Mega Gyara hype-train since day 1 and agree with everything you said here. I'd also like to add that Mega Gyara takes advantage of Terrains so well, being able to avoid status, priority (namely Mach Punch), or a free Leftovers heal are super helpful for getting up multiple boosts.

    Huh? There's people who complain about their ladder teams being "stolen" nowadays? It's not like you lost in an official tournament or anything because of it. I don't know what paradigm shifts have occurred in the community's attitude but back in the day, people "stealing your team" was...

    Should you really be using replays against players who run stuff like Guzzlord, non-Mega Gengar, Guzzlord (again), Wishiwashi, and Gallade to demonstrate a Pokemon's power?

    What are people using to check this monstrosity anyway? Mostly talking about the max SpDef investment Coil variants. I'm not really sure what the opposing team's plan is for beating this most of the time since it wins me so many games I don't deserve to win. I'm seeing a lot of Hippowdons and...

    Hoopa-U is such an underappreciated threat right now. So many slow passive teams out there are clean 2HKO'd by the combination of Hyperspace Fury+Zen Headbutt+Gunk Shot+Drain Punch and is one of the only wallbreakers that does not care about all the Protect-esque moves flying about out there...

    Pokémon Pheromosa

    Since I'm bad and need Pheromosa to win, I've played this mon more than anything besides Aegislash so far and can tell you that the only similarity between this and Deoxys is that they're both fast and vulnerable to priority. They play very differently. Deoxys is something you get in after a...

    No it's not a hyperbole, so many games are decided by who's Aegislash goes down first and what set the Aegislash is running (the latter usually contributing to the former). There are ways to check th is monstrosity, but there's a way to check even the most busted of ubers, and almost all of them...
