    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion Thread v5 (usage in post #547)

    Magearna is absolutely insane right now. The number of viable sets it has and the raw power of the double dance set is unreal. It's the easiest mon to play and win with in the tier. The addition of stored power put that set over the top and it still plays as an incredible trick user, an assault...

    When will I learn to read? Thank you for correcting me. I am still interested to see if this could be a trend that continues.

    Tournament SPL XI: OU Discussion

    I just wanted to note ring target on insult’s rotom-h with trick. What a completely nuts tech choice for toad. I’m curious to see what else it works on. While many people have pointed out that toad is potentially going to see less usage due to the lack of dracovish in the SPL, man is that a...

    The more I play, the more it becomes apparent to me that balance is underpowered this gen. (This is all on ladder. Clearly SPL tells a completely different story of balance being the singular playstyle) Hyper offensive still seems to be the most reliable playstyle from my own experience (I’m...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Games aren't developed like you're making them out to be. Most of the time spent is building the architecture/engine to make the games. The systems are now in place which probably took the most time during development, now they can use their already built tools to makes new areas, which would...

    Sword & Shield **Official news only** DLC Crown Tundra 22nd October

    Given their types(at least what we can guess from their design), maybe these will be the offensive regis as opposed to the defensive regis of old. Dragon and electric are more notoriously offensive typing.

    - Lando-T is gonna really warp OU - Magneton will be the answer to corviknight’s reign - Dragon dance TR is going to get garchomp and kyru black banned - Heavy duty boots Volcarona is gonna be the truth - hopefully those new regis have a cool niche - RIP to most galar mons as the power creep...

    Metagame SS OU Metagame Discussion v2 [Usage Stats in post #581]

    It sounds like to me you’re playing the match up wrong. Why would you set up hazards so heavily if you see a cinderace in team preview? I feel that throughout my own play my game plan on hazard stacking teams is to bait in the cinderace and whittle it down. If you find yourself up against a lot...

    G-Darm was dumb, glad it's gone. It wasn't super hard to check, but it relied entirely on reads and scouting the choice item. That usually involved taking 30-40% on a scarf mon to check if darm was also scarfed or giving up a mon since nothing could safely switch in without taking at least...

    I think this was before Shoddy and because stuff like Wish Chansey wasn't available on cartridge.

    I remember having to go over my cousins house around the time D/P came out to use his desktop pc so I could download PBS. Jesus that was a decade ago.

    Torkoal is a really good drought starter giving both rocks and rapid spin, but I wish we had Mega Houndoom. It's sad that sun's best mega is unreleased

    1 day of the ladder being online, during a holiday is no an accurate representation of what the meta is like especially if you're not in the upper ranks. Greninja being gone allows a bunch of BL pokemon to be viable (Diggersby) and allows fairies to exist in the meta again. Greninja over...

    His main problem is that regular swampert doesn't have a good easy switch in. Sure you can switch in on an electric type but every electric type in the tier is faster and has a way to cover swampert. If regular swampert had water absorb, or sap sipper, or could like completely take a common move...

    ~The Birdz and Beez in the Trap~ Hello all, I haven't done a RMT in YEARS. Seriously, I think the last time was gen 4. When mega-beedrill was shown and I saw all the stats, I knew I had to try and make a team that could use his monstrous speed and adaptability u-turns. The result was something...

    Pokémon Kingdra

    Well the only other sniper users are: Octillery, Drapion, Barbaracle, Beedrill, Fearow, and Ariados. It's not worth 100% crits if sniper isn't involved, not with the critical hit nerf. Kingdra really is the best abuser of this with stab draco meteor.

    It's not suppose to be like super good. It's a gimmick that's quite fun to use. Yeah sash screws me over but it's not meant to 6-0. But taunt doesn't work on subs in game, I think it's a Showdown glitch if I recall correctly.
