Almost Any Ability Resource MegathreadWhat is Almost Any Ability (AAA)?
As the name suggests, AAA allows your Pokemon to use almost any ability. It should be noted that AAA does not follow the OU banlist but has its own. Certain abilities and Pokemon have been banned from AAA to create a more balanced metagame. You can refer to the main thread for more info on the banlist or find out more about aaa and its banlist.
What should I use this thread for?
- Discussing the viability of Pokemon in the metagame and nominating them for ranks in the viability rankings
- Adding Pokemon to the role compendium
- Donating Sample teams
You should use the main metagame thread for:
- Discussing the AAA metagame
- Discussing sets you've had success with
- Bringing up potential suspects
Posting in the threads
In either thread, your posts should include proper justifications with examples from the AAA metagame.
When discussing a set in the ladder thread mention why and how it works in the current meta, what pokemon it beats/walls and what role it serves.
When nominating for the role compendium, specify what makes the specific pokemon worth a mention and why it does its job well. When nominating for a rank in viability rankings, specify why this pokemon should rise or fall based on its performance in the current metagame. When asking for a speed tier to be implemented, mention the pokemon's usage and why it's more relevant now. When "nominating" something to be implemented into the speed tier, please use the given format.
