I signed up for snake 3 on a whim, not really expecting to get picked just as I had done for the first two editions. This was fair. I had never attempted to pick up DOU and other players took it seriously. I really enjoy smogon team tournaments and I felt like given the chance it might be fun to...
Hey guys, for my 2k post I'd like to go back to the beginning of my smogon career and post a DPP LC team. DPP LC was the first tier I ever really set foot in and for those who don't know, the tl;dr is it's a fast paced tier with almost no strong boosting sweepers (rain is a notable exception)...
Hi I'm Nails, I don't usually write rmts because I like keeping my teams secret and I have a really high standard for what I should post to RMT, but this team has been used a few times in RUPL and I think it's pretty f*cking strong so whatever, here it is. Also I want Reuniclus banned because...
Now that the last official BW RU tournament is over, lets all share our awesome ideas we've been hoarding for months and years. Because if you hold out now you're a jerk.
I'll post mine later once I have time to collect my sets.
Descriptions are encouraged, but not required. But if it requires...

move 4: Protect
evs: 252 HP / 4 Att / 252 Def
best bulky fire type for a fwg core because it's not sr weak. plus defensive entei is ass. so it has a unique...

Protect allows you to...
Back in the early days of RU, Cresselia was the giant floating space duck in the room. It was kept in check by Yanmega and Venomoth but was still one of the top pokemon in the metagame. However it jumped up to UU before we could vote on it, and now it's joined us again.
This thread is for...
Hello everyone! This has been the team that I've used throughout most of this round, entirely under the alt qht (hence the name of the thread). The team has peaked at #1 a few times without much effort put into laddering, maxing out at 1410 or something. I decided to retire the team because with...
It seems like we just got rid of Yanmega and Venomoth, and now here we are trying to ban stuff again?
Well, as you guys know, since the last thread a new batch of pokemon was released from the dream world, and a couple of them have taken RU by storm. So, we're putting the following pokemon up...
Well, RU is finally off the ground! The tier has shaken up a bit with the bans of Yanmega and Venomoth, and due to usage stats a significant amount of pokemon are jumping between tiers. Charizard, Sawsbuck, Tangrowth, and Victreebel are now part of RU, while Cresselia, Blastoise, Rhyperior...
Since RU was created in May, we haven't done any sort of banning. This was due to a desire to let the tier "rotate" once, as up until now the UU usage stats that RU was based off of weren't reflective of what Pokemon UU actually had (Charizard and Sawsbuck in UU for example). The original intent...

This team is my first real team of Gen 5 LC. I had made it because of a conversation I’d had on PO about the Munchlax set that I made and wanted to test, and it surpassed all expectations. It has reached #1 on the Wifi and Dream World ladders (the Dream world ladder has no bans, Scyther and...
Head smash + Rock Head.
Cool typing, though no longer the best offensive steel in LC thanks to Komotana, it remains a threatening sweeper
Move 1: Rock Polish
Move 2: Head Smash
Move 3: Earthquake
Move 4: Magnet Rise/Substitute...
Nails’ LC Team
This is the team I’ve used for a long while on the CAP server LC ladder. It had the #1 spot on the ladder for like 2-3 months solid (like, a week total of other people on top of the ladder), hitting a peak of like 1620 iirc, maybe higher, and never really dropping lower than...
This is my first OU RMT (the others were from other tiers, check my sig for links), because it’s been my first team that hasn’t been so bad that it wasn’t beyond improvement. It’s been fairly successful, hitting a cre of […] on pokelab. Without further ado, here's my team...
Hi, I’m Nails. With the tour coming up and my UU team being horribly out of date, I decided I needed a new team. I looked around for inspiration for a team, and while playing on the CAP server it hit me.
Fidgit is incredibly good in the CAP metagame because (aside from having tons of entry...
There are a huge number of great attacks in pokemon. Certain moves have shaped the metagame, forcing some pokemon into the bottom of the tiering barrell simply because of the threat of the move, while others are completely game breaking when unleashed and can allow one to sweep through an...
Hai I’m Nails. This is my first Ubers team I’ve made, it was a joint effort with doomvendingmachine. It has peaked so far at ~1630 CRE/Rank 7, and I feel that it’s pretty solid. However, it has some pretty big weaknesses to some fairly common threats that I need help patching up...
