  1. SM OU Shatterdome (Rain Bulky Offense Feat. Scizor-Mega)

    Greetings! With Gen 8 on the horizon I wanted to share the only team I’ve ever enjoyed using in Gen 7. I’m new to SM OU, having only been active for the past 8 months after being a serious player back in Gen 4. SM OU was quite a hard meta to figure out, so credit to this team goes to my...

  3. Regarding Set Order

    This issue has been tackled all of Gen IV, but once again there needs to be some sort of collective stance on this. Some users on the team believe set order should be based on usage, but this led to some controversy some time ago when shit like Dragon Dance / Outrage / Earthquake / Fire Punch...
  4. Scarf Heatran EVs

    Link to set for convenience. I had a very controversial epiphany the other day when I was putting Heatran onto my team. So here is the controversial question: Why is ScarfTran running Max Speed? Heatran is in a tier of its own speed wise, and with most other offensive or Scarf sets the...
  5. Tier 3 "Limbo" Ladder

    I don't know where the right place to suggest this is, but myself and a lot of people constantly talk about maybe adding a ladder for all the pokemon recently banned that were "suspects" and how fun that would be as an individual metagame alternative. Hey its sort of like the BL of OU, since...
  6. Kingdra (The Bulky Swimmer & Mixdra Update)

    www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/Kingdra Couple updates for Kingdra in OU. For starters.. Double Dance should probably be removed simply because if you should EVER go Rain Dance you should go special or mix due to EV concerns and higher base power of special moves. But I think this deserves its own...
  7. Hariyama (OU Anti-lead)

    www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/hariyama So basically, this set is beast and pretty self explanitory.. I havent found a lead it doesn't beat really. It used to be on site for OU I don't know why it was deleted. [SET] name: OU Anti-lead move 1: Fake Out move 2: Close Combat move 3: Payback move 4...

  9. Metagross (Gen 4, Update)

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/metagross Got permission from Colonel M to do a quick update on the Metagross analysis. Many of the spreads here are complete Rotom bait, but for the most part the analysis is pretty complete albeit quite lengthy. Will work on improving certain sets, changing...
  10. The Value of Sleep Talk (Stategy Analysis and Discussion)

    Introduction Sleep-Talking is an underrated and undervalued strategy in the current Metagame. Sleep Talk used to be staple sets on many pokemon that lacked instant recovery as a chance to give them increased longevity. However, lately Sleep Talkers are becoming more and more rare due to the fast...
  11. DPP Kingdra (Choice Specs)*

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/kingdra This set was removed from the analysis and I don't know why? I've been using this set to the extreme lately and it still works perfectly. [SET] name: Choice Specs move 1: Draco Meteor move 2: Hydro Pump move 3: Surf move 4: Dragon Pulse item: Choice...
  12. DPP Heracross (Bulk Up)*

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/heracross Okay this is a set I have been testing recently that had overwhelmingly good results. I usually use Bulk Up Machamp but I wanted to try a standard Bulk Up Heracross as it possesess similar bulk, decent type coverage, but more speed. So I gave this a...
  13. DPP Magnezone (Sub Charge Beam)

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/magnezone I've been using this set a for a while and it works particularly well in the current metagame. The first set, the steel killer, is engineered primarily to beat Bronzong and Metagross. However, Bronzong is dropping in usage and Metagross are usually...
  14. Star Trek Thread

  16. Milotic [4N] - Life Orb Tank

    http://www.smogon.com/dp/pokemon/milotic So in my quests of UU, I've been working on utilizing Milotic's excellent offensive and defensive capabilities simultaneously. Being a water type, Milotic is blessed with acceptable type coverage, few weaknesses, a crucial fire resist... and the...
  17. Depression

    I love you Smogon, for being the only place I can just vent and not feel completely stupid or make a further ass out of myself. But I'm really trying to figure out if I am really depressed, or if my psychologist is just telling me this to get me to take drugs. I hear they diagnose people...
  18. Stop Using Him! (Dragonite Discussion)

    Despite the title and how you interpret it, I am a strong supporter of Dragonite and a life-long fan. But Smogon we have a problem... There is this horrid stigma surrounding Dragonite that he is a "novelty" Pokemon or just an inferior Salamence. Well guess what- he is inferior... and he isn't...
  19. Talking accross the table is rude (Language Discussion)

    Hey smogon, its Raikou and I have another thought provoking discussion today. Before I start, please remain civilized in this thread because it is a very controversial discussion. So I am an American college student and many of you who attend American universities will know that there are a...
  20. Choice Items in the Metagame Discussion

    Introduction In advance, the game was changed with the addition of the Choice Band. This revolutionary item allowed a user to attack with 1.5Xs the normal power but restricted the user to only one attack until it is recalled. In D/P, Game Freak decided to expand on this and add Choice Specs and...
