  1. Metagame NP: NU Stage 4 - A Whole New World (Bans on post #160)

    Hey NU, resident lurker and occasional ladder tryhard here. You might remember me as the dude that was hyping up Ninjask like a year ago during the RU Beta. NU is really cool right now IMO and I wanted to share a set that's been working pretty well for me, getting to the mid-1500's or so as of...

  6. Metagame NP: RU Stage 1 - I Lost Something in the Hills (Indeedee-M banned)

    Another reason to hate Sigilyph, you ask? Now it can Toxic + Roost Gigalith to death. Cool. Ngl I've been kinda on the fence about Pangoro personally because Bewear is just better in my experience outside Sableye matchups what with it being just as strong and infinitely fatter (like how tf is...

    Yo looks like we're matched up for round 1 NU Alpha Tour. I think we're both EST so I'm good after 8 PM all week, but I can be more flexible over the weekend. Just hmu when you're good
  8. Metagame SWSH RU Alpha - Metagame Thread

    Arctozolt @ Life Orb Ability: Volt Absorb EVs: 252 Atk / 40 SpA / 216 Spe Naive / Hasty Nature - Bolt Beak - Freeze-Dry - Hydro Pump - Icicle Crash So I think basically everyone with a soul likes this mon and wants it to be good, and I think this set is probably as good as it gets until...
  9. Metagame SWSH RU Alpha - Metagame Thread

    Wanted to echo this post because it can't be overstated just how much Gigalith actually covers, to the point that if you're not running it you're bound to get ran over by some cheese sooner or later. Probably sooner too, since you can just run Trapinch on your sun/veil squad to crush...

    Got a spikes team with Honedge for PU, brought it up to ~1600 on ladder before tilting https://pokepast.es/583591c9876526a3 Details in the paste cuz no one knows what this thing does, but Edge is lowkey the best spinblocker in PU. Doesn't actually OHKO Silvally-Fairy like it says in the paste...
  11. Metagame LGPE Anything Goes

    Here's a super underrated threat for anyone who wants to add some more offense to their game Got caught off guard by this on the ladder and after using it a bit I gotta say that this thing goes hard. If you can get the smash off, STAB into boom KOs a huge amount of the tier. Hydro by itself...

  13. Metagame LGPE Anything Goes

    While that might be the case for on cart, I think everyone can agree that they're not tryna fight 5 Mewtwo every game. I've seen some cool stuff on both ladders, but with broken Mewtwo everywhere and with multiple copies allowed per team there's not a whole lot of substance here. I know the...
  14. Metagame LGPE Anything Goes

    After spending a good amount of time topping the Nexus server I gotta ask, are there currently any plans to implement proper clauses/bans into the Unrestricted ladder? Candy meta is actually surprisingly competitive if you can adjust (without every match being a 300 turn stall war too!), but...
  15. Resource USUM PU Viability Rankings

    Hoo boy, been a while since I nommed anything. I'll give you the tl;dr, and say that this mon is like asking "what if Toxapex were balanced?" and then doing that. That said... Mareanie Unranked -> C First things first, this ain't Toxapex. Like not at all. That said, after giving it a fair go...
  16. SM UU Beta (Mewnium Z, Staraptor, Victini banned)

    RIP all three of us who used BP without being lame and passing boosts. Interesting that we lose Jirachi, just to gain PZ instead. The difference in bulk between the two is noticeable, but PZ is so much stronger it's not even funny. Electric Z-Convert will probably be the norm but I'm interested...
  17. Sun & Moon UU Speculation and Discussion Thread - Updated with UU Alpha!

    I wouldn't say necessarily that Weather was nerfed so much as the overall (current) power level of UU has been buffed to better handle Weather, be it with strong Priority attacks (in the case of DNite, Zydoge, Sciz, Weavile, Azu, etc.) or with general bulk (Gigalith, Latias). Latias in...
  18. Sun & Moon UU Speculation and Discussion Thread - Updated with UU Alpha!

    Gotta respectfully disagree with this point. Granted, I do think this set is good too, but perhaps geared more towards all-out-offense. Being able to surprise a Tini or Bewear seems pretty legit, I won't lie. In my personal experience, Toxic has been huge however for Water-Immune mons like...
  19. Sun & Moon UU Speculation and Discussion Thread - Updated with UU Alpha!

    Here's a fun little BW2 OU SuMo UU Rain Balance thing I put together over the weekend. Politoed @ Damp Rock Ability: Drizzle EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def Bold Nature IVs: 0 Atk - Scald - Encore - Toxic - Rest Scizor @ Choice Band Ability: Technician EVs: 248 HP / 252 Atk / 8 SpD...
