    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 6: Pay Your Way In Pain | Shadow Tag Remains Banned

    While I mostly agree with you, I still feel as if Max would be an interesting thing to retest. Especially now that we (seemingly) have a complete and unchanging dex. Hell we all knew Stag was just as f*cked (and I will be voting BAN), but here we are... Play enough VGC and you’ll learn a...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 5: One More Time | Marshadow, Shadow Tag Quickbanned

    Personally at this point, I feel like after things settle a bit more, maybe about 2 weeks to a month or so, we could test out some things that got quickbanned and see how they function without Goth being around. Because personally I feel like both Goth and the previously banned Rachi (less of...

    Resource SS Doubles OU Viability Rankings (updated 10/14 on post #134)

    Zygaede -> T3 imo. It definitely is pressive, and Thousand Arrows IS really stupid, but has plenty of checks to it. It hates Intimidate. Rillaboom exists. Fairies and especially stray Ice coverage maims it. Lot of common mons and scarfers can get the jump on it if it hasn’t boosted yet...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 5: One More Time | Marshadow, Shadow Tag Quickbanned

    My Initial thoughts on everything: Melmetal: Relatively tame so long as you plan for it. It definitely hits extremely hard, but frankly I haven’t had a ton of issues dealing with it. While it does exert a ludicrous amount of offensive pressure, many many more things can just slap it now...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 5: One More Time | Marshadow, Shadow Tag Quickbanned

    Honestly as far as I see, Jirachi, Swaggar, and ofc Shadow Tag need to gtfo. Everything else seems rather doable to me tbh. Without that bullsh*t in the meta, I feel like it would drastically tone down a lot of things running train currently. Would personally like to see how things shape up...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 3: Awful Ever After | Urshifu Single Strike Banned

    That isn’t a glitch, my guy..... They naturally share the same sprite in the physical game. Maybe you need a bit more research. And they both share a fair chunk of the same checks, so prepping for SS should do you just fine against RS for the most part The only minor glitch I ever see with...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 3: Awful Ever After | Urshifu Single Strike Banned

    Am I one of the gud players now? :psysly: No seriously. Through this whole run, which was torture btw, I never once felt Urshifu was all that oppressive. Wicked Blow is dumb as piss, yes. I will never debate that. But it doesn’t really just invalidate Pokémon like a lot of other things do...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 2.5: Next Steps

    Damn. Press F for all the fun stuff. This meta stays getting cucked... But seriously, I do agree with this. Lowering the Dynamax level was definitely a mistake. While Dynamax isn’t as dumb as I remember it being, likely because I’ve just gotten used to it, I believe it should be full Lv 10...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 2.5: Next Steps

    I suppose I should give my own thoughts on this now. After playing around with Lv. 0 Dynamax in the meta for a bit, my feelings on Dynamax being pretty dumb haven’t entirely changed but have changed a little bit. The opportunity cost is almost nonexistent, and the near instantaneous free shifts...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 2.5: Next Steps

    I’m a bit on the fence about this, seeing how monstrous Dynamax was in the past and how some past abusers of the mechanic could run wild again. However, lowering the Dynamax level was something I had thought of and proposed back during the initial suspect. Now that its actually possible to do...

    Metagame np: SS DOU Stage 2: Out of My League - Melmetal Banned | Magearna Banned

    #FreeKyuB [: Honestly, I get where you’re coming from. But I don’t feel like Urshifu is exactly overbearing. I see it in a way to pre-Incineroar Hoopa. Its signature moves are indeed a bit absurd and it is powerful and force a very aggressive and think-on-your-toes situation, but also...
