    Thank you!
  2.  np: SS UU Stage 5: Change is Gonna Come (Diggersby & Venusaur BANNED)

    Yeah, I agree with unbanning everything. The power level of the tier just went up, so examining all the banned mons is something that should be done.
  3. Metagame NP: PU Stage 2- Let's Go Crazy (Crown Tundra is out)

    I think PU should move back to beta like UU is considering. I'd probably unban most if not all of the mons and run council votes until the tier is stable before moving to suspect test.

    How do you guys feel about Scolipede? I think it's a decent set up sweeper and spiker. I've been using this set with Magnezone support to break Corvikight and Skarmory Scolipede @ Life Orb Adamant Nature Ability: Speed Boost EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe - Swords Dance - Megahorn - Poison Jab...
  5. Pokémon Scizor

    I'd definitely call Psycho Cut a notable move, as it allows you to break Pex, who use to be a hard counter to (Mega) Scizor. +2 252+ Atk Life Orb Scizor Psycho Cut vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Toxapex: 234-276 (76.9 - 90.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Black Sludge recovery
  6. Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v5 (usage in post #547)

    Just a small correction, both Lycanroc-Dusk and Lycanroc get Accelerock. Lycanrock-Dusk is better than Lycanrock due to Tough Claws, which allows Life Orb Psychic Fangs to 2HKO Pex. 252 Atk Life Orb Tough Claws Lycanroc-Dusk Psychic Fangs vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Toxapex: 159-187 (52.3 - 61.5%) --...

    Cloyster is an Ice type and gets Skill Link.

    You've made some bad post about Inteleon (acting like Torrent is better than Sniper is laughable), but this one is actually hurts your argument (Mud Bomb isn't even selectable in Gen 8). You even claimed that Specs is stronger, but that's not true either. 252 SpA Choice Specs Inteleon Hydro...
  9.  np: SS UU Stage 4: Heads Will Roll (Haxorus banned; Drizzle banned too, see post #57)

    I've been trying out this set and I've been having some fun with it: Inteleon @ Scope Lens Ability: Sniper EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Timid Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Hydro Pump/Surf - Air Slash/Ice Beam - Dark Pulse - Focus Energy Thanks to Scope Lens and Sniper, Inteleon becomes a...

    I'm assuming that Play Rough is for Zeraora to kill Kommo-o. Other than that, I think Knock Off is generally a better option

    Personally, I wouldn't even waste time on a suspect test. Just quick ban Arena Trap.

    Your calcs did not account for the fact that Showdown's Damage Calculator does not include the damage boost from Gorilla Tactics. Here are more accurate calcs: Scarf: +1 252 Atk Darmanitan-Galar Icicle Crash vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Centiskorch: 103-122 (25.4 - 30.1%) -- guaranteed 4HKO +1 252...

    If the majority of the community feels that a threat is ban worthy, then a Quick Ban should take place. I feel that it's a waste of time to have a Suspect Test when most people who get reqs will vote ban anyway. A Suspect Test should only be done when there are valid arguments on both sides to...

    Keep in mind, that this proves my point as to why Arena Trap was banned in Gen 7, and retroactively got banned in Gens 5 and 6. It was done to nerf a Pokemon that was proving to be problematic. Remember how Dugrtio itself was suspected in Gen 7? That suspect ended with Dugtrio being legal. It...

    Baton pass is a special case in that it created a degenerate strategy, which is the same reason why swagger was banned back in Gen 6. I've already mentioned that King's shield does not create a degenerate strategy, so it has no business being banned. I don't understand why you mentioned...

    Smeargle also gets King's Shield. I Also already outlined how moves are only banned for inducing RNG, which King's Shield does not. So it is different because moves and abilities are not tiered the same, and King's Shield does not fall within what Smogon constitutes as ban worthy. Also, bans...

    A Gorilla Tactics ban doesn't set a bad precedent at all, we literally banned Power Construct in Gen 7 to nerf Zygarde. I don't know why you are mentioning complex bans, when people have not been asking for one. If Darumaka-G also had Gorilla Tactics, then banning the ability makes no sense...

    I don't know why people keep saying "we don't ban to nerf pokemon", yet the Arena Trap ban last Gen was specifically to nerf Dugtrio, as was the recent banning of Sand Rush in Gen 5 to nerf Excadrill. How about the Swagger ban in gen 6 to nerf Klefki and other Prankster users? What about the...

    If you don't like smogon, then why waste your time to comment? Go play another format instead. Btw, every format has rules/bans so you can't escape that. If you ever wanna attempt to stop a ban in a smogon tier, ladder for reqs during a suspect test or don't complain (assuming there's no quick...
