Welcome to the GSC OU discussion thread! This thread is intended to be used to share insights into current trends, show off and help others with their teams, analyse and critique gameplay, and just about anything else related to the second generation's flagship metagame here on Smogon.
What not to post in this thread
- Any basic questions can instead be directed to the Simple Question Simple Answer (SQSA) thread.
- One-liners should generally be avoided. Try to give a bit of context for your thoughts.
- Don't just post a team or replay with no explanatory context or analysis.
- Avoid ruleset change-based what ifs and other meta (OM) discussion in this thread.
- Don't post about anything other than GSC OU.
To get discussion started:
- What do you find strong in the current metagame and what kinds of strategies are anti-meta?
- Have you seen any unique strategies of interest while playing recently?
- What are some of the cores you've had success with recently?
