    I shouldn’t have quoted that section then, my mistake. My argument about recovery still stands outside of that though.

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I understand this concept completely. But my post doesn't talk about CAP30b's STABs...at all. So I'm not sure what the problem is here. To summarize that post: imo, CAP30i needs a Flying-type STAB to best take advantage of Tinted Lens The best Flying-type STAB we can give CAP30i is Brave Bird...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I don’t think you understand the point I made though. Using Brave Bird with having access to reliable recovery on a Pokemon with a Stealth Rock weakness won’t work. The Pokemon gets worn down too fast through rocks and recoil. Historically, Honchkrow, an offensive breaker that utilizes Brave...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I want to challenge a couple points made by this post. You are correct that Gyarados doesn’t get a reliable Flying-type STAB, and that being a Flying-type doesn’t necessarily mean we get a STAB move. However, to maximize its ability Tinted Lens, I would argue that CAP30i needs to have access...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    I want to ask a question that Tada didn't cover: why do we need Water Bubble in the first place? I get that the combination of strong Water-type coverage, burn immunity, and halved Fire-type damage is appealing, but...that's going to be appealing on basically any Pokemon. Water Bubble is just a...

    CAP 30 - Part 5 - Primary Ability Discussion 30b

    After thinking about it some, I think Corrosion CAP30b is a valid route to take, but it will narrow CAP30b's focus. Astrolotl and Equilibra had options to bypass Steel-types with their STAB options, not because of Toxic. In the case of Corrosion CAP30b, Toxic is the way CAP30 pushes through...

    CAP 30 - Part 4 - Typing Discussion

    I think my favorite typing combos on the slate right now are Fire / Fighting, Grass / Poison, and Dark / Flying. I think they all interact quite nicely with Tinted Lens while also leaving options very wide open for CAP30b. Even within the metagame, these typings are pretty underrepresented -...
