    Tautology Thread (thread about tautologies)

    I kindly invite you to accept my kind invitation. If you look through this thread, I can guarantee you will have seen it. This is a thread for tautologies; that is to say, it is a thread for statements of a tautological nature. If I were to explain in more detail, I would give a more thorough...

    Hot Hatred/Adoration Thread

    As you may know, the hot takes thread has been a bit chilly of late. But sometimes, even though base takes ("Gen 3 best gen") can be lukewarm to cold, if they're strong enough ("Gen 3 utterly embarasses the others"), they become hot again. Now let's see some utterly misplaced aggression and...

    this is really important because some flags are better than others and people need to know. tell me a flag and i can probably tell you if its good Good Flags (Breton) (Teutonic Order) (Kartli-Kakheti) (Prussia) "The Monochromes": Hard to go wrong with black and white. Prussia's an honorary...

    Let's Play! Finland's Heartgold OPTI-locke

    Hello! I'm Finland/Tiksi. I hope you could gather the "Finland" part from the thread title, but one never knows. Anyway, I'll be running a HeartGold Nuzlocke, but with the OPTIMAL twist: Instead of catching the first Pokemon I find, I keep searching until I find the route's least efficient...

    Pending Expanded /coverage commands

    If you use, say, /coverage fire, ice, you will be shown the best possible matchups for this combination against every single type. This is a logical extension of what /coverage does for single items, and useful sometimes, but what is usually desired is which Pokemon do and do not resist the...

    Fresh Takes: On Holiday Break

    approved by G-Luke ✧Fresh Takes✧ Wish that Machamp had the Special Attack to properly use its dazzling No Guard Focus Blast? Wondering why 71/37/37 stone wall Pheromosa gets Roost? Desperate for Merciless to find a home on a more glitzy attacker than Toxapex? You've found the right place...

    Other Metagames Anything Goes: SpecsXern is Better (Peak 1832, #33)

    Hello world! In case looking at the name of a thread poster is heresy, I am Tiksi, who finally decided to dabble in AG again. With Reflect Ho-oh and Shedinja being pretty rip in this newfangled generation, I decided to play around with perennial powerhouse Xerneas. I've never liked Geomancy...

    [AG] Arceus-Ground [QC 0/3] [reassigned]

    rip in WIP, WIP in rip Ayy QC lmao Arceus-Ground Overview Great support Arceus forme due to its excellent typing, which is weak to very few physical threats and has positive matchups against many. This typing and its support movepool give it many defensive niches, especially defogging on the...

    Serious Should the U.S. maintain its current level of interventionism?

    Really since the end of WWII, the US has consistently been a high-intervention global superpower. From the Marshall Plan to the Middle East, and including but not limited to matters in the more immediate sphere of influence (the Western Hemisphere), America has established itself as the #1...

    Other Metagames Anything Goes BIRD (1909, 90% GXE, #9)

    Wow, I'm doing this again. Anyways, I conjured up a team on the principles of BIRD (powerful Flying-type attacks) and slipped into the 17501900s, 17571909 to be exact. I'm going to really try to ladder high, I want to make sure my team is good for the job. Hence I'm making this check-up RMT...

    ORAS Ubers First Ubers Team in Forever (Bulky Offense, I think)

    So, yeah. I haven't played Ubers in forever, but decided to make a team, and it actually fared decently after some fixing. I just hit 1600, and have 1606 now. While that isn't terrible, from my experience in AG I know I'm still far from high ladder lol. Anyways, here's the team! Yeah...

    Other Metagames AG Offense - Killing Your Guys

    Wow. It has been an eternity since I've made an RMT. But I (finally) have a general build Im very happy with, so I'm going to find out how to make it even better? This team to me feels like a bunch of deadly offensive threats that work in great synchronization together; it's not really centered...

    Serious Still can't get over Crimea... What next for Russia and the world?

    Yes, it has been a while, but I still can't get over Crimea. It's just so crazy to me that a major world power took a sizable (and very strategically important) chunk of land from a sovereign power. This isn't the 1800s, and no matter how powerful they are, a major world power with a seat in the...
