    On Smogon you are not allowed to pass any stats+speed. You can either pass any combination of Atk/def/SpA/etc. OR speed.

    With Z-Celebrate, is there any merit to running Jolteon over Raikou now? Your faster, hit harder than AV Raikou, and have similar defenses.

    I'd recommend giving protect over leaf blade a try. A free turn of leftovers and curse damage, while preserving Roost PP.

    Plenty of things can touch it, in particular scarf and priority(especially to ghost because sneak), as well as any ground types who don't get OHKOed(in the case of electric).

    Why would you ever run roost on a CB set? Like, yeah, you can get a free roost up when you force a switch, but your giving your opponent all the momentum. If you really want to be able to give it a second life, just run Z-parting shot Persian-A.

    Also, all the kanto starters apparently get Celebrate. +1s for EVERYONE!!!

    Would like to point out that Eevee gets celebrate, so ALL eeveelutions have access to a one-time +1 to all stats. I'd say Jolteon, Sylveon, and Leafeon would benefit the most from this. And no, I'm not saying use Leafeon in OU. Please don't do that. There ARE other metas besides OU.

    U-turn keeps dugtrio from ruining your life, as well as generally keeping ground types from stealing your momentum. Everything you need BB for dies without attack investment. I could definitely see HP ice over gleam, tho.

    It would depend on what that lets it live VS what OHKOs/2HKOs it misses out on without LO

    It's a trapper set, not a boosting set. Thought that would be obvious. And who the fuck tries to curse on an obvious whirlwind. In theory, this thing basically kills everything that doesn't 2HKO it if it gets trapped.

    I can't believe people are actually calling for a Porygon-Z ban. The thing is incredibly predictable, it has two sets that at minimum share 3 of the same moves. It has a good number of checks. And, most importantly, the thing doesn't set up for free. People keep dropping these 2HKO calcs like...

    Now that we can stop talking about aegislash, maybe we can make some progress here. I'd like to turn this discussion towards Hoopa-U. This thing is insane. All you need to do is get it in and something is dying. it competely shuts down nearly all balanced play. I don't play hyper offensive, so I...

    A bit off-topic, but with the recent rise of Marowak-Alola, two Pokemon have been given the chance to screw teams hard. These are, fan favorite, rotom-W and Raikou. For example, I recently ran an incredibly successful defensive core of Celesteela, Toxapex, Marowak-Alola. Right after building the...

    I'm sorry, but banning king's shield makes no sense and people need to get over it. We DO NOT nerf and buff Pokemon as we see fit to make the meta look how we want. The whole reason we have tiers is so we aren't tying to make all the mons work in one meta. We leave the mon AS NINTENDO DESIGNED...

    Also I'll mention this. I haven't used it, but I know people who have and said it works. This thing can run a set with -spirit shackle -curse -roost -toxic/Defog/etc.

    Ill be that crazy guy, i'd love to see Darkrai and Deoxys-D brought back for a round of testing. Truthfully, I don't think Darkrai will actually be ok in the OU meta, but I'd still like to see it :(. Deoxys-D however. I honestly think the mere will be able to handle at this point. All this of...

    Yes, it does work on stall. And it doesn't need versatility, it has thousand arrows. Having a wopping one counter in unaware Clefable does not make it ok. Anyway, I think Hoopa-U is a huge problem, at least right now. It obliterates the current hyper offensive teams, as well as balance teams...

    I feel like genesect has had enough checks introduced that it isn't really that big of an issue. For example, thanks to Toxipex it isn't even safe to u-turn. I just switch in rocky helmet tox on your u-turn, and regenerator takes care of the damage. Of course, it could always start carrying...

    I've been using this thing as a pivot to GREAT success.... Decidueye @ Leftovers EVs: 248 Hp/20 Atk/240 SpDef Ability: Overgrow Careful -Spirit Shackle -U-turn -Roost -Defog Just as an example, this thing eats Tapu Koko who don't carry Brave Bird, and it can trap and kill ferrothorn and...
