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.

Current OMs
NatDex 1v1 - Led by pqs and a council
UU 1v1 - Led by Arai and a council
Monotype 1v1 - Led by Felucia
1v1 Type Challenge - Led by AllFourtyOne and PartChandelure, and a council
AAA 1v1 - Led by Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd and a council
Ubers 1v1 - Led by Alakazam
STABmons 1v1 - Led by Freddy Kyogre
CAP 1v1 - Led by AllFourtyOne
LC 1v1 - Led by Poison Adhesive and Quote
Dynamax 1v1 - Led by Osra

AG 1v1 (maybe ryy)
Inverse 1v1
Sketchmons 1v1
BH 1v1
NFE 1v1

These can be claimed by anyone. If you wish to take leadership of one of these, message me about it

National Pokedex 1v1
Led by pqs


(art pending)
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, Z-Moves, and Custap Berry 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. You may play this metagame in [Gen 8] National Dex AG, with bringing three Pokemon and choosing one, while making sure you’re abiding the aforementioned bans.

Bans: - Zacian, Zacian-Crowned, Zamazenta, Zamazenta-Crowned, Eternatus, Dynamax, Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys-Base, Deoxys-Attack, Deoxys-Defense, Dialga, Giratina, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kangaskhan-Mega, Kyogre, Kyurem-Black, Kyurem-White, Lugia, Lunala, Marshadow, Mewtwo, Mimikyu, Necrozma-Dawn-Wings, Necrozma-Dusk-Mane, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Salamence-Mega, Shaymin-Sky, Snorlax, Solgaleo, Tapu Koko, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom, Focus Sash, Perish Song, Detect + Fightinium Z
Unbans: - Moody
Added rules: - Dynamax Clause

* The format for these dates are MM/DD/YY
12/22/19: All generation 8 Uber Pokemon have been quickbanned from 1v1!
12/22/19: Dynamax has been quickbanned from 1v1!

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.

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

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.

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 pqs why he put it so high, and he said that every other member of the council disagreed and that he only put it there for 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:

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
 

Lkjc

Formerly Lkjchjdhbjidcgjhd
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.

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!

Where tf is Snom? Biggest new Pokemon of interest added to Ice...

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)
