    Resource SS OU DLC2 Viability Ranking Thread [See Page 53]

    While specs and DD dragapult are strong offensive options, I think the most common use of dragapult is as on offensive pivot. It remains one of the fastest pokemon in the tier (and imo a solid scarfer) and has a great movepool, meaning its pretty customizable and has a lot of viable sets. If...

    You're fixated on the facet that most of us do not deem to be the problem. You even almost go so far as to say it yourself, "future sight on its own is not broken but future sight + fighting type," it has nothing to do with slowbro and nothing to do with future sight. It's about the overpowered...

    That may be so, but it's irrelevant to OU play, which this subforum is about.

    Pokémon Moltres-Galar

    Rest talk should be one of it's primary sets. Imo it's far more consistent and effective than WP anyway. It sits in on and walls so much stuff while getting off really solid chip, it's a great status absorber, and as long as they can't 2HKO you, their just gonna keep triggering berserk, watching...

    I can't believe you're actually calling adaption and metagame growth a 'fallacy'. Pro-tip for you newer players here: you are allowed to run sets that are not posted on smogon.com/dex. I suppose if you joined only a year ago then you wouldn't have the experience to know what Mew is capable of...

    These are really disingenuous lists you guys have made. Is Zygarde running toxic and coil and DD and choice band and iron tail and outrage and glare and sub? I take particular issue with the comments about Mew and other ones where you seem to imply that adapting a pokemon's sets to meet other...

    Pokémon Heatran

    I understand the idea, but I still don't buy it. You can do the same exact thing by running the traditional set with earth power and toxic. I feel like subbing is just wasting turns you could be doing the job of removing. It only takes 3 turns to remove a healthy pex with heatran anyway, why not...

    Pokémon Heatran

    Idk about this. IMO the extra damage is pretty much always preferable to the chance to burn something (probly something that doesn't mind a burn much either). Who are your targets for earth power? Heatran and toxapex. The former has one of the most customizable EV spreads in the game, so you'll...

    I was responding to someone else saying it needs to run flip turn, how was that figured out yet either lol. But that was a late night drunk post ha it should be deleted.

    Ok you must see the difference between a pokemon like tornadus-t or landorus-t and tapu fini. I just don't see why you're running tapu fini if not for a defoging pivot, and if you are, it doesn't bring to the table anything close to what the therians do. Does it not have to defog 100% of the...

    Is it really a big buff tho? I'm trying to imagine scenarios in which flip turning out with fini is actually a good play. It's most common splash will be coming in to defog. On the turn it defogs, the opp will go to their fini answer, and then is it going to want to eat a hit from one of its...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - Fireball

    And so we get to the core of it. Arguments relying on common pokemon tropes are unconvincing. Arguments that illuminate the detrimental effects a mon has on the meta, and the specific temabuilding and in game scenarios in which its unhealthy influence is revealed are convincing, and i haven't...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - Fireball

    So you totally missed the point then lol... because what you said is exactly my point, you can sub in almost any mon and it still reads. People get mad when you list out generic traits of a mon as arugments, i'm pointing out that many of these things are tantamount to 'super effective coverage...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - Fireball

    Ok so obviously take this with a grain of salt its just an exercise, but: ________ Hydreigon threatens pretty much any team but the way they can respond to that are quite different. You still pivot in and out against fat teams and stall while forcing threats out as certain mons still fear...

    Announcement np: SS OU Suspect Process, Round 6 - Fireball

    If cinderace doesn't really do much to fat teams, and it can't touch stall, and offense will handle it the same way it handles any other threat (sac something in order to kill it), who exactly is cinderace so threatening to?

    Well my question is more about what priorities will be then what the actual meta will look like. But it's probly the same answer ye. edit: ok thanks, and lemme say i wasn't trying to agitate in asking, i think smogon has done an admirable job maintaining stability dealing with GF's slow...

    Resource Simple Questions, Simple Answers Thread

    If cinderace gets banned, is there any idea of how long it will take once DLC2 drops to re-test it down? It's likely it will be balanced in the new meta, but will we probably first test any new drops that are deemed problematic before testing down stuff that was banned in these 'pre' meta-games...
