1v1 OMs were once the backbone of the 1v1 community, giving flavor and diversity to the overall current gen metagames of yesteryear. While 1v1 as a community has generally focused more on Old Gens in recent times, the 1v1 OMs still hold meaning to a good portion of the playerbase.

Welcome to National Dex 1v1! Many people have been outraged about “Dexit” or where half of the national Pokedex was removed from the main series games, and subsequently all Pokemon Showdown metagames. This outraged many people and they have formed a metagame in which we can still experience Mega Evolutions and Z-Moves among other items that we all relish from the past. The auto-bans from this metagame include everything that was banned in generation 7 1v1, along with the legendary Pokemon included in generation 8 1v1. We have already determined a quickban in this metagame for Dynamax / Gigantamax for the same reasons as in the standard 1v1 metagame, due to it being very unpredictable and it is boosted further with Mega Evolutions and Z-Moves being added to the mix.

Bans: - Deoxys-Defense, Mimikyu, Snorlax, Tapu Koko, Fightinium Z + Detect
Unbans: - Blastoise-Mega, Blaziken-Mega, Deoxys-Speed, Landorus, Lucario-Mega, Lucarionite, Naganadel, Pheromosa, Zygarde-Complete, Power Construct, Necrozma, Sableye, Mew, Moody, Genesect
Added rules: - Gen 8 National Dex

Major Points of Discussion
:tapu-koko:: Tapu Koko has been an interesting topic in 1v1 due to it's Electric Terrain being nerfed. Though some may think it was / would be still powerful without it's Electric Terrain, we're going to look into its matchups work out now, and if anything has changed before we make a decision. yeah this ain't getting unbanned lmao

:mew:: With it gaining Imprison and Transform from generation 8, it can take advantage of its all 100-base stats to take a hit and stall them.

:sableye: | :sableye-mega:: In the Z move meta, it isn't as great as it would be in a place like SWSH which it can Encore + Disable almost everything, though it is still a notable and undiscovered pick.

AAA 1v1
Led by Lkjc
AAA 1v1 (Almost Any Ability 1v1) is a metagame where any Pokémon can have (almost) any ability. This completely changes the way the game is played because you can come to face a Lightning Rod Gyarados, which then surprisingly gets defeated by Mold Breaker Vikavolt. The possibilities are endless.

Bans: Sturdy, Huge Power, Pure Power, Intrepid Sword, Gorilla Tactics, Fur Coat, Ice Scales, Moody, Prankster, Parental Bond, Protean, Libero, Simple, Speed Boost, Water Bubble, Wonder Guard, No Guard, Imposter, Normalize, Shadow Shield, Multiscale, Hustle, Neutralizing Gas, 1v1 Banlist

:ss/darumaka: Little Cup 1v1 :ss/darumaka-galar:
Led by pqs
LC 1v1 is a 1v1 OM based on the LC tier, in which you are only allowed to bring the base evolution of Pokemon at level five or lower. Many of the strategies here are different due to movepool changes and EVs and IVs being handled differently.

Bans: - Pancham
Unbans: - Cuteifly, Drifloon, Gothita, Vulpix, Vulpix-Alola
Added rules: - Little Cup

Pancham is a little too strong in the metagame, with its movepool and ability selection just being too much for most Pokemon to handle, with it having three great abilities in Iron Fist, which boosts its already strong and abundant punch moves like Drain Punch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunder Punch, and even Power-Up Punch. If you're thinking: "oh can't you just run dwebble or something to beat it": it has access to Mold Breaker to destroy that, among other things. Scrappy can also be used to beat Honedge, another one of its biggest threats normally. It also has a bunch of great attacking moves like Drain Punch, Fire Punch, Gunk Shot (important for beating spritzee), Ice Punch, Iron Head, Rock Slide, Stone Edge, Storm Throw, Superpower, Thunder Punch, and Zen Headbutt, and a bunch of utility moves like Swords Dance, Knock Off, Power-Up Punch, and Bulk Up, which when all of these have their own set, Pancham is a menace to counter. Looking at the VR, the highest ranked Pokemon that can 100% beat it is Ponyta-Galar, due to its high speed tier and Psychic-typing, but you have to go pretty down on the VR to find it.

Major Points Of Discussion
:spritzee: With Spritzee getting all of the tools it has as Aromatisse in regular 1v1, and it having items like Berry Juice which restores its HP fully instead of just 33% like Wiki Berry, this makes itself one of the best mons in the tier.
:darumaka: This is mostly an undiscovered Pokemon, but it has a lot of potential outside of a standard Choice Scarf set, getting access to things like Choice Band, Life Orb, Encore, Taunt, and even Belly Drum against stall. The only thing holding it back is how it gets its power in Hustle.

Dynamax 1v1
dmax.PNG

Led by smely socks and Potatochan789
Welcome to Dynamax 1v1! While Dynamax was deemed too powerful in regular 1v1, it has been freed in this meta. A large part of the meta is both utilizing and playing around Dynamax. Mons change movesets based on potential boosts from Dynamax and also try to find ways to undermine the opponent's Dynamax. This leads to many mindgames during battles about when each person will Dynamax creating interactions unique to the tier.

Bans: - Weakness Policy
Unbans: - Mew, Sableye, Mimikyu, Jirachi
Removed rule: - Dynamax Clause

Major Points of Discussion
The council has decided to unban Mew, Mimikyu, Jirachi and Sableye. While all of these seem way more manageable because their gimmicks have a lessened effect during Dynamax (imprison, flinches, encore, reduced curse damage), it is worth seeing if new techs are discovered that continue to make these mons unmanageable. GMax forms are a point of interest to see which are worthwhile over their regular forms.

Real 1v1

Welcome to the real and original 1v1 metagame, not the 3v3 you're probably used to!
1v1 used to be 1v1 on Pokémon Showdown until it was changed to 3v3 on 2014.07.01, now it's back!
This metagame is best played on a ladder.

For background to this metagame it's best to just read this discussion: starting post.


Rules:
Mechanic:
1 pokemon out to battle. No team preview.
Clauses: Evasion Moves Clause, Accuracy Moves Clause, Dynamax Clause
Bans: 1v1 (3v3 team preview) banlist as it was 2020.04.01.
Unbans: None


Strategy:
For 1v1 in general, the most important thing to keep in mind is a basic idea; "if there's no switching what would be good?". Strategies that are ruined by switching, such as Leech Seed and dropping the opposing poke's stats. Strategies that are ruined by phazing, such as setup.

For the no team preview part, the strategy is to see 1v1 as a test. The most important thing to keep in mind is a basic idea; "which pokes would be good against the currently used pokes on the ladder?". Play on the ladder for a bit with a versatile poke, and after a while you will see which pokes are used.


Q&A:
Q
: Real 1v1? What does "real" imply?
A: It implies that it's not the 3v3 team preview 1v1, but actual straight up 1v1 with no team preview.

Resources:
Playability
: This format currently playable on rom.psim.us, only gen 7 though.

Moody has been unbanned from National Dex 1v1! Here's our reasoning below...
11/26/19
I think we should try to look into more on Moody and how it affects the metagame. The only big user of Moody I'd see is Smeargle, but I don't think it would be really good, mostly just Mega Gengar-esque relying on pure hax for some of its matchups.
I don’t think there’s any users that make much use of it regardless of how the ability can be seen as uncompetitive, Glalie makes the most use of it but base 80s across the board with not being able to do a whole lot doesn’t make it banworthy, especially now that there’s no evasion or accuracy added or reduced.
If regular SWSH 1v1 can't make Moody strats work I seriously doubt the much more powercrept natdex 1v1 will see any issues.
No evasion means that nothing is able to really abuse it, and everything that gets moody has terrible stats.
Too powerful, I think it would be better if he stayed banished. What he's abusing are sweepers with good stats so they can easily place themselves all the better than cleaning
the voting was originally on discord so this isn't the longest reasoning but yeah

AAA 1v1
Led by Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd
AAA 1v1 (Almost Any Ability 1v1) is a metagame where any Pokémon can have (almost) any ability. This completely changes the way the game is played because you can come to face a Lightning Rod Gyarados, which then surprisingly gets defeated by Mold Breaker Vikavolt. The possibilities are endless.

Bans: Sturdy, Huge Power, Pure Power, Intrepid Sword, Gorilla Tactics, Fur Coat, Ice Scales, Moody, Prankster, Parental Bond, Protean, Libero, Simple, Speed Boost, Water Bubble, Wonder Guard, No Guard, Imposter, Normalize, Psychic Surge, Shadow Shield, Multiscale, Hustle

I COULD BE BANNED!
NatDex 1v1 VR Nomination: :melmetal: -> B: I know this is a huge jump, but let me explain. Melmetal's niche isn't discernible over Mega Metagross or Mega Aggron. I asked why the council put it up so high, and my answer was high HP. First, take a look at how shabby its special bulk is, and how its access to items doesn't help much:
252 SpA Charizard-Mega-Y Blast Burn vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Occa Berry Melmetal in Sun: 402-474 (84.8 - 100%) -- 6.3% chance to OHKO
Well, at least helps it hard counter Dragonite with the combination of Rock Tomb -> Ice Punch, as Firium Z Dragonite simply can't kill it:
252+ SpA Dragonite Inferno Overdrive (185 BP) vs. 252 HP / 252+ SpD Melmetal: 348-410 (73.4 - 86.4%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
even after Extreme Speed:
0- Atk Dragonite Extreme Speed vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 24-29 (5 - 6.1%) -- possibly the worst move ever
if it has that type of bulk (specially defensive Mega Mawile ha ha). Otherwise it looks like it can maybe tank Zygarde with some physical investment:
+1 0 Atk Zygarde-Complete Tectonic Rage (180 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 426-504 (89.8 - 106.3%) -- 37.5% chance to OHKO
until you realize something else, it can't even OHKO with the investment needed to beat Firium Z Dragonite, and that's in base forme without investment:
0 Atk Iron Fist Melmetal Ice Punch vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Zygarde: 300-356 (84 - 99.7%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
Maximum investment? No.
252+ Atk Iron Fist Melmetal Ice Punch vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Zygarde: 292-348 (69.5 - 82.8%) -- guaranteed 2HKO
About Donphan, at least it has a chance to win:
252+ Atk Donphan Tectonic Rage (180 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 446-528 (94 - 111.3%) -- 68.8% chance to OHKO
252+ Atk Donphan Ice Shard vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 17-20 (3.5 - 4.2%) -- possibly the worst move ever
Considering these calcs, the only other Pokemon in the S- or A-ranks it can beat is Landorus-T (with some investment), but some Lando sets beat it anyway:
  1. Bulk Up + Groundium Z
  2. Adamant Groundium Z
  3. Any set with moderate bulk investment
252 Atk Landorus-Therian Tectonic Rage (180 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 468-552 (98.7 - 116.4%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO
-1 252+ Atk Iron Fist Melmetal Ice Punch vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Landorus-Therian: 340-400 (106.5 - 125.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 Atk Landorus-Therian Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 518-612 (109.2 - 129.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Melmetal can either take the Defense investment needed to beat Landorus-T and Donphan or take the Special Defense investment needed to beat Dragonite, and that's a compromise that further shatters its viability when you have better choices in Mega Metagross and Mega Aggron.

  3. Any set with moderate bulk investment
252 Atk Landorus-Therian Tectonic Rage (180 BP) vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 468-552 (98.7 - 116.4%) -- 93.8% chance to OHKO
-1 252+ Atk Iron Fist Melmetal Ice Punch vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Landorus-Therian: 340-400 (106.5 - 125.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+2 252 Atk Landorus-Therian Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Melmetal: 518-612 (109.2 - 129.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Melmetal can either take the Defense investment needed to beat Landorus-T and Donphan or take the Special Defense investment needed to beat Dragonite, and that's a compromise that further shatters its viability when you have better choices in Mega Metagross and Mega Aggron.
yeah i guess you're right, on the outside it looks considerably good due to good hp and defense, but i guess when looking in-depth at it, it's fairy outclassed by threats like mmetagross. i will talk with the vr council (same as normal council) about this.
 
AAA 1v1
Led by Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd
AAA 1v1 (Almost Any Ability 1v1) is a metagame where any Pokémon can have (almost) any ability. This completely changes the way the game is played because you can come to face a Lightning Rod Gyarados, which then surprisingly gets defeated by Mold Breaker Vikavolt. The possibilities are endless.

Bans: Sturdy, Huge Power, Pure Power, Intrepid Sword, Gorilla Tactics, Fur Coat, Ice Scales, Moody, Prankster, Parental Bond, Protean, Libero, Simple, Speed Boost, Water Bubble, Wonder Guard, No Guard, Imposter, Normalize, Psychic Surge, Shadow Shield, Multiscale, Hustle

Neutralizing gas was recently banned from standard AAA. Is the council of 1v1 AAA considering action against it?
Please this shit is so stupid
 
The AAA 1v1 Council has banned Neutralizing Gas!
Here’s our reasoning:
I think it’s too early in the meta right now to know for sure, and nothing really abuses it right now
we still havent found a solid abuser and it is a good answer to hyper offense
havent built yet
Gas is straight broken in this meta. It’s good on basically every defensive mon because no more adaptability, etc. as well as it’s good on basically every offensive pokemon because no more intimidate, immunities, prankster, or anything. The ability it the definition of unfair for the AAA format because of how the entire game revolves around abilities.
Literally just a “no u” to any form a strategy you wish to use. I don’t see how nullifying you opponent’s ability in such a heavy ability based format is fair. Like VG said it’s also just good on every offensive mon. “Nothing really abuses it” is wrong when you can easily slap it on a Pokemon that is scared of meeting an opponent with a stab immune ability and such.

Ban wins with 2/3 vote which is greater than the 3/5 needed to win.

All Pokemon in the S, S-, A+, A, A-, and B+ tiers are banned. The lowest-ranked banned Pokemon is in C+ tier (Rotom-W). Milotic barely escaped being banned by about 0.04 percentage points.

Edit: added V2.

u rly thought
After discussing some VR shifts over Discord, me and the VR council decided to move these Pokemon around on NatDex 1v1.

:inteleon: Inteleon B -> C+
:avalugg: Avalugg C+ -> B-
:weezing-galar: Weezing-Galar B -> B-
:zygarde-complete: Zygarde-Complete A -> A-
:mew: Mew S -> A+
:genesect: Genesect -> B+ (wasn't on the vr previously, accidentally removed)

If you want to discuss any of these changes with us, feel free to check out the National Dex 1v1 Discord!

And I fee like Corviknight is a High prio both for Flying and Steel TC. Bulk Up+Roost+Brave Bird for Flying TC, and Iron Defense+Roost+BodyPress for Steel TC hits like high hell, and is nearly a staple for both....
The reason I rated Corviknight as mid is it's pummeled by lots of Pokemon with super effective attacks like Celesteela, Thundurus-T, and Mega Charizard Y. Also it faces competition from Skarmory as Skarmory has a Rockium Z set. Corviknight also has bad matchups against special Steel-types such as Heatran, Aegislash, Magnezone, Celesteela, Genesect, and even Magearna. Losing to most special attackers is what compromises Corviknight's top-tier status in my opinion. But we'll have to experiment to see how important poor matchups versus special attackers are.

(Assuming that the TC council is being honest and they just haven't implemented NatDex yet)

UU 1v1 Update:
With January 2020 Stats now available there are some interesting changes to be seen:
New Pokemon include Grimmsnarl, Whimsicott, Conkeldurr, Weezing-Galar and Gastrodon.
The Pokemon leaving us will be Rhyperior, Snorlax, Tyranitar, Mandibuzz and Milotic.
The VR should be getting updated soon with these changes.

I have also updated the VR to have the SwSh menu sprites over the old mini sprites.
 
STABMons 1v1

After a few recent tours in the 1v1 room, I have a few concerns I have with a few Pokemon and moves.

Things in red are already banned in normal STABMons, so I'm not sure why I saw them in the tours.

BROKEN

Silvally/Type-Null

Because of how STABMons works, Silvally has access to every move in the game, since it has a forme of every type. This makes Silvally nearly impossible to predict on team preview, in terms of type and strategy. While its most popular set is Imprison/Transform, it can run almost any other offensive or defensive set.

It's typing is especially important, too: It can be a Steel-type to resist Obstagoon's Extreme Speed or Sylveon's Boomburst, or a Dark-type to counter Whimsicott. While being able to hold an item seems important for an Imprison/Transform user, the held memory can also make it immune to Trick, some hyper-offensive teams' way of dealing with stall.

Type-Null can only learn the Normal moves, but it still gets access to Imprison/Transform and can have extra bulk with Eviolite. I wouldn't say it's as broken as Silvally, though.

Whimsicott/Spore

The infamous stall-mon now can further cripple mons with the 100% accurate sleep move Spore. In normal 1v1, Whimsicott has to be able to live the opposing Pokemon's first move, but, as long as the opposing Pokemon is not immune to Spore or Prankster, it no longer needs to.

GOOD, BUT NOT BROKEN

Bolt Beak/Fishious Rend

Once held back by their unimpressive users (50 base speed for a move that needs the user to be faster?), these moves can now wreak havoc with better users, namely Zeraora and Barraskewda.

Extreme Speed

The most notable user being Obstagoon, who can pair it with Guts/Flame Orb, Obstruct, Fake Out, and Sucker Punch. Sylveon can use it in lieu of Quick Attack, and Snorlax can Belly Drum to boost its power.

Jirachi
More specifically its access to Double Iron Bash, doubling its chance for a flinch.


Sorry if these things are already banned, I'm only noting my observations from a few tours.
