K. Finally I have access to smogon. Happy new year guys.
Some people in PS asked me, "when will challenge #1 end?" Actually, I intend to do BH next but looks like BH is conducting a suspect. So I'd say the CLC will start right after BH suspect is finished, so please be patient, k?
Since I spoiled one of the metas for the next challenge, feel free to suggest a core for BH CLC.
I don't know what's suppose to constitute a CLC core, but I'd like to see pokemons that despite being severely underused, have a multitude of viable sets, I'd personally really like to see Kartana for CLC as it performs multiple role from sweeper to wallbreaker or Revenge Killer quite well and forges itself a solid niche in BH with a respectable speedtier and the combination of base 180+ attack with a STAB Sunsteel Strike.
As a partner I think Reshiram is a really solid mon in BH and has been run to great success with multiple different sets last gen, yet has so little usage that nobody knows where to rank it (CLC would help at that ngl). Fire + Dragon is quite amazing for both a Mold Breaker set or a Contrary Set, it can also beat imposter with an adaptability + draco judgement set.
I think they form a great offensive core together as Reshiram can threaten things Kart struggles with like Prankster / Phisdef Steels or Groudon, while also somehow functioning as an impostered Kart check and potentially using it as set up fodder.
On another note I think Muk is a cool pick since it's actually viable and has at the very least 2 viable sets, but Muk + mmy feels a bit like too obvious of a core and also requires you to use mmy, which people are already doing anyway.
Venu + Mag is cool thought, fully support.
Ok guys. I'm really sorry to disappoint but there will be no BH CLC next challenge. I thought BH suspect will be over in 12th of January, but looks like 12th of January is only the deadline for the reqs, so the suspect isn't finished yet and may take another week to finish. So it'd be too long if I wait until BH suspect is finished. That's why I decided to not include BH because I am not allowed by the leaders to include CLC a suspecting meta. Again, sorry guys.
Because of this, I'll announce that challenge will end on 7th or 8th of January, depending on I have time to access Smogon or not. So if you want to achieve something, make it quick.
Regarding the next Challange, I'll be doing Mix and Mega, 1v1 and redo either Sketchmons or AG with new cores (AAA is doing suspect after BH iirc). So feel free to theorymon either metas.
Also regarding who are the ones featured in Hall of Fame, I'll feature ALL users who reached Platinum. If none of the user reach Platinum, I'll feature the one with highest elo, even though they all got Gold. So congrats to these users: Scarfnaut, Zephyr Dragon Lord and Fardin. I'll be asking for your teams to be featured in Hall of Fame (if you want to be featured, post your team please). Regarding AAA, I'll wait until the end of the CLC to see if there is anyone with the highest elo.
Edit: Also for the Bronze/Sliver/Gold/Platinum reqs for the next CLC, don't worry. I WILL tone down the reqs to make it more reasonable to achieve. This is because I've received complaints of Platinum reqs being too high.
Special thanks to Chloe. and Catalystic for AG challange idea, Zephyr Dragon Lord and MAMP for MnM idea and aesf for 1v1 idea. Challenge goes for around 2 weeks. So it should end on around last week of January 2017 (depending on when I get access to smogon, not everyday I can).
Also since people complained that the Platinum is too high, I toned down the Platinum reqs. I hope it's more reachable now.
Edit: Also for AG players, please make a new CLC account to differentiate from Challenge #1 account.
Shoutouts to Blastoise for being good, The Ruins of Alph for making that Zygarde coil into pretty much the best Sketchmons team there is, and Durza for having good taste in Alolan mons, and giving me the (unconscious) suggestion of Keldeo as a Garchomp partner, as our banes mixed together.
