mix and mega power rankings

1. Gmansour20
Very amazing player, if you beat them, you earn an pass to hell >:( Very nice person too, I would gladly do anything they asked of me, including, but not limited to, murder, ghosting, kidnapping their opponent, and more
2. With the strength gman has at his disposal, there is no other worthy opponent. Gmansour20 will be the ultimate Mix and Mega player if I have anything to say about it.
 
after maining the tier for 3 years, and still be present in the community, i got a pretty good grasp of where each player is at and how good they actually are. ofc its my opinion, but imma try to not be too bias.

S

Skarph and Zen. sometimes i wonder if they are the same person. they both like bulky builds, but can mix it up with some solid HO, while also being able to use stall at a very high level. They only use overpowered shit, hence why they are the most consistent of the bunch. Skaprh is a bit better when it comes to building, and is MUCH more active than zen so imma give him the edge... both are still S regardless

A+

Cata: The man hasnt played or built much but is an absolute beast in tours, and his prep game is the best out of every player here (tho kinda predictable at times with his double zyg teams) Playing Wise he easily S, but just been a bit inactive and out of touch with the tier

Ham: one of the best player in the tier. his teams can get a bit predictable, but not enough to losea bo3 set. he had a bad record last year, but won 2 or 3 ag tours in a row before it.

A

Megazard: Altho this man rarely builds, and his teams can get extremely predictable, he has shown how consistent he is in tours. Playing wise, he isn't inferior to anyone here. He will play top tiers every round, meaning recycling teams will only get him so far. his true viability will come down on how well he preps and builds.

Frogger: One of the most underrated player in the entire community. Playing wise extremely solid, and just like zen and skarph, only uses OP shit which helps him be consistent. He can play any playstyle, and is versa enough to build top tiers in em too. Only reason he isnt that high is his tour performance, which i havent seen much of, but based on some friendles and roomtours ive had with him, i know for a fact that he can stand his own vs anyone listed here.

Purple: Playing wise, he S for sure, but similar to cata, he been out of touch with the meta, despite making it to aglt. at first glance, based off of his tour games and etc, his teams seem very preditcable, but when its ompl times, he crancks it up a notch, and build some fire shit that just happens to have an excellent mu vs his opponents. His prep game is Cata level for sure.

A-

Arushii: Solid player, and can play a lot of playstyles at a high level. Her teams are as good as anyone elses, but idt she is at level of the rest of the bunch at A and above playing wise. Her tour perfomance tho defently shows she is capable of beating anyone here.

BaconEatinAssassin: Kind of a darkhorse. A very similar case to Frogger. underrated, plays excellently with solid teams, but his havent seen much from him. he did have 1 good tour run, and based on my games with him, he can match a lot of people on here, I simply dont know enough as of yet wheter he should be A- or higher.


MIxingDatBeat: He was a meme that turned out to be a very solid player. lots of players have a pretty bad impression of him due to his extreme usage of fucking heatran, but regardless of that, his builds are very solid, probably one of the most unique one with the choices of his mons, and the prep game for a specific opponent is above average. This would be his first time in a major tour, but i believe he can take on anyone and put up a nice performance.


DSMP: Ex-Goat, still fucks around with AG, and has made aglt. His team choices are...pretty weird ngl, but that is exactly what makes him one f the scarier dude to play this tour. Playing wise, he easily S, and his past ompl success speaks for itself. It really just comes down to how much time he is willing to invest into this tour. People believe him to be just a smeargle spammer, but he is much more than that.


S A= A and A- is pretty stacked. Everyone above is top tier, and capable of beating anyone they face...some just stand out a bit. this still dont mean a positive record is guarnteed to anyone cause the skill level is super tight. The skill difference from above and the rest of the guys below is a bit more significant

B+

GRNBLN: Solid player, very nice tour performances, nice teams, but similar to cromagnet, playing ability isnt necessarly top tier, but till very nice.

Cromagnet: Solid player, been around for ages and the most active player. Teams are always solid, but playing ability is slightly below everyone at the top, hence why B+. Still a solid pick and can get u solid chance of winning vs most

Velvet Blood: underrated person. Loves to use memes, but somehow always makes em work. The teams she uses arent always too consistent, but playing wise, he is as good as anyone else in S and below.

Highlighter: highly doubt he'll play ag, but we saw what he can do in ag open if u just give him some solid teams.

Silent Mobius: 2 time AG ssnl winner, which goes to show how consistent he can be. Altho this time, he will have to face top tiers each and every round, but im sure he can do well. Often reverts to using other's teams, but looking at AG, i cant even knock him for that, + it does bring in wins, so ig w/e works for him. Defently a solid pick for any team i think, and is another darkhorse of this draft.

lotiasite: Long time player, excellent tour performances, and been consistent thruout the years wtih it. Altho he my friend, i just simply dont know enuf about his playing ability to rank him any higher.

Holy Break or w.e he goes by now: Very solid dude. been inactive for a while now but came back recently. At his prime, he was around A, so he defenitly a good pick if he decides to invest some time into the tour.

B

zesty: Old time player, quit but is prob coming back. Ag is what he started out with in OMS, but he managed to branch himself out enough to be a nice contendor in both MNM and other stuff. Altho he was very nice in ag, and did an amazing transition to UBer where he become a top 3 player, he never fully got to his potential in this meta, hence why only B for now

Kong Harold: dude just came off of beating 2 top tiers in AG ssnl and AGLT. A very long time player, and is solid in terms of playing and building too. He a relativly unknown dude to the OM community, so I believe he can be an easy 3k for either support or playing. He can stand his own vs a fuck ton of people and can be a surprise in this tour...



Honorouble mentions(all of them here are solid players, and some can be help to an AG slot. they are also all good enough to start too and put up a good fight vs anyoner...ag is too stacked): tictactoeguru, racool, maroon, Cam, Lasen, bananaben, Neomon, Cynara, zugubu royale, Sets, Quaseem, icemaster, bdov

sorry if i left out anyone, got a shit memory. AG is pretty stacked, and everyone i listed are decent enough to win games here.

also another option can be to draft tour players, mainly Uber ones, as they'll have an extrenely easy time transitioning, and prob getting a win or two. ofc ull need builders for that so be careful.

Aight so I've seen a couple of these so I'm here to give the one that everyone's been waiting for: the Stabmons player tier list!

As you all know, since PS!'s creation STABmons has been at the forefront of popular metagames with monthly battle numbers rivaling that of SM OU, meaning that the player pool for this tier will be brimming with potential talent and picks, especially since STABmons was not in the last iteration of OMPL. Therefore, I am here to give a coherent guide so that you all have the best draft possible.

First off I want to my homage to the gods themselves. These individuals reinvented the tier and without a doubt are the best of the best when it comes to stabmons. If you see any of these individuals, I HIGHLY recommend drafting them. (Ouija board might be necessary)

GOATS:
w0rd, Virginia!=Virgin, Eevee General

Next up we we have the veterans of the tier, these guys will get the job 11 times out of 10 and have been playing stabbies for a while. There building prowess is UNMATCHED so I expect ALL of them go to quickly in the top rounds.

Veterans:
Sedertz, OM Room, Funbot, Mark_K, Jrdn, Drampa

Alrighty that is all for the stabmons draft guide, everyone else is a LONGSHOT so please draft with caution. Best of luck to all managers and I will see you all in OMPL VII!!!

omg drampa's grandpa look we're stabmons veterans!!!!

Pre-draft rankings by The Immortal

8) The Socialist Sobbles
It's obvious that Mark K and Anaconja have the least experience out of all the managers. I expect a poor draft due to it being their first time and then it's up to them to make good of what they have. I don't doubt Mark K will be able to support his team well though, but will it be enough?

7) The Klink Shamers
Despite being a solo manager last year and OMPL expanding to 8 teams, Chloe managed to finish top 3, which is quite an achievement. However, she has since quit and returned, and even transitioned to being a PU main now. As a result, I have to question her motivation. As for Pigeons, I asked him if he'd like to manage his own team and he refused; a day later he was suddenly co-managing with Chloe. Someone that indecisive is never going to be a good manager.

6) The Five-Star Jolteons
Ransei went from finalist in OMPL 4 to 7th last year. I expect his bad run of form to continue. While he is highly experienced as a manager, and an active member of the OM community, unfortunately he doesn't bring the support that other managers can bring to their teams. DBW doesn't bring much help either due to his seasonal presence in OM.

5) The Metro Boomin Mega Rays
A good run last year and I can say with certainty that power sed is going to give 100% as a manager. Unfortunately, 1v1 has been cut and DEG is mostly dead weight. jk. But for real, despite not being an active player at a high level in these OMs, I expect sed to support his team to the best of his ability. And DEG will provide moral/comedic support I guess. They need a good draft to break into top 4.

4) The Money Magearnas
There is no one that wanted to be a manager more than Funbot. Literally asking every team if she could manage with them. That motivation and her overall presence in OM (shoutout to being on basically every council) led to her receiving her own team. The addition of regirock is solid as well. Since his return, he has been one of the most active members of our PS! community and would have probably been a solid BH draft if he played. Despite the lack of PL managerial experience, Funbot's overall experience on Smogon.com and her competitive knowledge/ability is going to carry this team to at least top 4.

3) The Temper Tyrantrums
I expect drampa and OM to learn from their first run as managers last year and have a strong showing this year. Both have remained active in the OM community, are strong players in their respective metagames, are knowledgeable about the playerbases, and have good synergy as well. I predict a good draft and then being able to support their team well. Don't let me down <3.

2) The Head Honchkrows
Following a win in his first run as manager, jrdn is going to be the biggest threat once again. Since last year, jrdn has expanded his presence. He is now apart of more standard communities. That knowledge, combined with being one of the best OM players, plus the addition of STABmons, is going to make him unstoppable. I expect a solid draft, with some cheap high quality tour players that only he can support, and overall solid assistance throughout the whole tour for his team. TCOT is there too I guess.

Hey guys, it’s me, former OMPL-winning and OMWC-losing manager Uselesscrab, back again with one of my signature “funny posts.”

You may remember me from such highly successful efforts as The Signed-Up (not) Shiinotics, "soy kris," that time I put numbers into an online calculator and acted like a statistical genius, and whatever this was.

Well, if those posts are any indication, watch out, everyone, because this one's going to be a real doozy! Without further ado, hope you enjoy... Uselesscrab's OMPL VII Commencement Thread Post.

I guess that is why they call it a "mock" draft.

Thanks everyone for reading! See you all next time. Who knows how many thrilling posts like this I'll be making this OMPL now that I am no longer burdened by actually contributing to it in any substantive fashion?

Probably not very many.

However, she has since quit and returned, and even transitioned to being a PU main now. As a result, I have to question her motivation. As for Pigeons, I asked him if he'd like to manage his own team and he refused; a day later he was suddenly co-managing with Chloe. Someone that indecisive is never going to be a good manager.

6) The Five-Star Jolteons
Ransei went from finalist in OMPL 4 to 7th last year. I expect his bad run of form to continue. While he is highly experienced as a manager, and an active member of the OM community, unfortunately he doesn't bring the support that other managers can bring to their teams. DBW doesn't bring much help either due do his seasonal presence in OM.

5) The Metro Boomin Mega Rays
A good run last year and I can say with certainty that power sed is going to give 100% as a manager. Unfortunately, 1v1 has been cut and DEG is mostly dead weight. jk. But for real, despite not being an active player at a high level in these OMs, I expect sed to support his team to the best of his ability. And DEG will provide moral/comedic support I guess. They need a good draft to break into top 4.

4) The Money Magearnas
There is no one that wanted to be a manager more than Funbot. Literally asking every team if she could manage with them. That motivation and her overall presence in OM (shoutout to being on basically every council) led to her receiving her own team. The addition of regirock is solid as well. Since his return, he has been one of the most active members of our PS! community and would have probably been a solid BH draft if he played. Despite the lack of PL managerial experience, Funbot's overall experience on Smogon.com and her competitive knowledge/ability is going to carry this team to at least top 4.

3) The Temper Tyrantrums
I expect drampa and OM to learn from their first run as managers last year and have a strong showing this year. Both have remained active in the OM community, are strong players in their respective metagames, are knowledgeable about the playerbases, and have good synergy as well. I predict a good draft and then being able to support their team well. Don't let me down <3.

2) The Head Honchkrows
Following a win in his first run as manager, jrdn is going to be the biggest threat once again. Since last year, jrdn has expanded his presence. He is now apart of more standard communities. That knowledge, combined with being one of the best OM players, plus the addition of STABmons, is going to make him unstoppable. I expect a solid draft, with some cheap high quality tour players that only he can support, and overall solid assistance throughout the whole tour for his team. TCOT is there too I guess.
I see you left the esteemed rank 1 for the Goat Gogoats. Very excellent choice. I approve of this PR!

It's really easy to just grab a tour player for the ZU slot because its a standard meta, but heres a PR for the ZU people you might want to have build/sub in for them.

No ordering to various sub ranks.

S Rank

Pohjis
- Not really a whole lot to say. The man has incredible consistency across multiple Seasonals and won Open that was filled with a whole lot of the players that are signing up here. Is slightly nerfed because his half Tangrowth + Pex core moved up to PU but still an easy pick if he signs up.

RawMelon - Plays his own stuff and plays it very well. Back to back seasonal champion with an unfortunate flame out in Open. Had a pretty solid run in the last OM Snake (we're just gonna ignore the t3 loss to Skysolo).

A+ Rank

Czim -
Has been slightly inactive recently but has really good tour runs to ensure his slot here. Always the bridesmaid never the bride because he cant manage to beat Pohjis for the life of him, but he's made top 4 in every ZU tour he's entered except the most recent seasonal. Another unconventional builder but his stuff works and it's pretty easy to use in the case that you need to sub him out or want a builder for a more seasoned player though Czim comes from with a solid tournament background from other tiers as well. Won the last OM Snake as the sole ZU presence on his team.

LPY - You bugged me to make this so I get to put myself here. Similar boat to Czim in that I can never quite get over the hump in my seasonal runs, but my consistency has earned me a top 5 seed in Circuit playoffs at the time of writing. I also beat Megazard in MnM once so clearly I can contribute to other metas. Totally. Built for Finch last OM Snake to some success and had a lot of fun doing so. Built half the teams that ended up being used in OMGS playoffs including all of the teams in Haylighters and Fardins respective runs. Honestly I have more fun supporting people with builds but I can play with anyone in this tier if you want me for that.

A Rank

5gen -
Really solid overall player and one of the most pleasant people I've ever talked to. Not the primary tier leader for nothing and has results to back it up. I feel like I'm selling him short because I cant think of anything to say, but I'd say these first 5 are my top 5 ZU players and he can very easily fill any role a team requests of him.

Megazard - He's going to be playing other tiers in this tournament, but when given builds he pilots them well and is a good multipurpose pick for any team. Has never lost a fair best of set on Showdown.

Blalib/A Fruitshop Owner - His play is peaking at the right time as he current sits in Grands of the most recent seasonal and he brings a whole lot of team tour and smogon experience to the table and is always a pleasure to test with.

A- Rank

Xayah -
Our other glorious leader. Really solid player and enjoyable person to build and interact with. Even though I disagree with some of his opinions (Komala really isn't /that/ good) he always shows up when he plays. Worked his ass off managing OM snake without knowing much about the other metagames last year with a Assman who probably showed up once a week. Haven't been able to build with him recently, but he's not afraid to tear holes in something to make it better.

Zugubu Royale - Established tour player makes losers finals of his first ZU tour. Where have I seen that before. I don't really know Zugubu outside of reputation and the one time he called he a [redacted] for beating him on ladder but he'll be a good tour player because he is a good tour player.

Durza - We're pretty sure Durza is good at this tier even though he barely plays it and when he does he either memes or gets shit bracket draws. His results in other tiers as well as his overall well formed opinion on the current cast of ZU players and the metagame as a whole leads me to believe that he's good so he's here in A- land.

Ho3nnConfirm3d - Won ZULT recently as well as making a decent run in seasonal. Numerous ladder peaks which dont really mean anything but I'm mentioning it anyway. The man is newish to the tier relative to most of the other names on here but he can play. Wildcards with his builds a lot but it works and it works well.

Sketchy Ecchi - Another really solid player who's made a deep run in seasonal. This ranking comes from my personal experience playing vs them as well as results. Haven't interacted with you too much but you seem cool.

Dj Breloominati - Putting Spitfire up here to differentiate him from the current seasonal run players because this isn't the first ZU run he's made. Has experience in other parts of smogon which is different to a fair amount of ZU players who hole up in our own little world. I'd apologize for that time I 10% burned you out of seasonal, but you got a 12.5% roll crit earlier so I wont :p. Cool guy, good player, Onodera Best girl.

B+ Rank

This rank is honestly just going to be the seasonal players that are peaking right now.

Uhuhuhu7 - I honestly know nothing about you and for that I apologize. I've been inactive for most of your run.

Broken Phobias - Has a style and sticks with it. Generally knows his shit and will be very active the entire time.

Rav3ndan - He's been around for a while but is finally having a breakout tournament. Seems chill from my limited interactions with him.

Non seasonal players here:

AaronBoyer - Plays what he knows well, but has had some combination of very poor bracket luck and build inflexibility knock him out early in multiple seasonals. On the other hand, definitely has a significant amount of experience playing other OMs and so can be an overall flex pick.

Tack :] - Mans brought mono shell smash vs pohjis and almost won. Also beat pohjis but I think the other is more impressive. Cool guy whose activity is picking up now that its summer again so will be around to hopefully get back to his peaks from last summer which would put him solidly A-.

BloodAce - Another overall very solid player who can probably contribute very well rounded builds to any team. His overall results have been lackluster recently but that happens sometimes. Pleasure to interact with and test with, kinda sad I've fallen out of touch a bit, but a really good builder who can definitely step up when he plays.

Yovan33321 - Another very new ZU player who has come onto the scene with very good results including a deep seasonal run and ladder tour finals. Probably the biggest wildcard on here and could very easily outperform everyone else in this tier.

85percent - Very solid player and overall enjoyable person to interact with. After taking a loss to me in ZULT went out of his way to ask for him because he wanted to improve his builds and playing. Is passionate about getting better and would be easily amongst the most active I think

That went longer than I thought. Very new at this and out of touch of the last like 3 weeks so if I missed you/you have questions about someone or you feel I'm wrong feel free to PM me here on showdown if I'm ever on or on discord.

MNM PVR

lots of people requested me to do one (only skysolo), so here i go

S

Stresh: Prob the best player in mnm rn. Despite that fail last ompl, he seems to have imrpoved a lot, and his tour performance shows that. tho tour performance is nice and all, ompl is a different breed so it should be fun to see how he will do. His choice of pokemons arent necessarily diversed per playstyle, but can play ho/bo/balance so thats not really that big of a problem. Playing wise, idt anyone really surpases him, it will just all come down on how much time is he willing to invest in prepping. Top tier both at playing, and building, hence why he the only S to me.

A+

Andy: Solid player, plays well and builds too. Doesnt like to build much, but when he does, he is probably one of the more diveresed dudes out there when it comes to his choice of mons to use. That can be both good and bad at times...tho mostly a good thing. Idt he is S, cause his teams arent nearly as consistent as stresh's, and at rare times just prays on mu, but playing ability makes up for it

A

QT: man hasnt played mnm in ages, but when he did, he was top 2 for a solid 2 years. His teams used to be the most consistent one out there, and it was what set the standards for what was generic in this tier, which is pretty impressive. Altho he is an excellent builder, playing wise he isnt up there with stresh + the potential rust is there too, hence why A and not A+

Chazm: Solid player. he is a tricky one to rate. At times, he is up there with stresh playing wise, but other times he just chokes some impossible to lose games. Tho he mostly does well, but... draft at ur own risk. Building wise he is okay. Not as good as stresh, but still can be easily good enough to get mu vs some stuf and win in even games if he plays well. he had a nice record last ompl, and made it to finals of mnm ssnl, but i have no clue how he got it. no bias i promise, but my man is one of the worse at prepping for his opponents...using shit he tested days ago that can be found on replays, , and bringing the same team both g1 and g2, COUNTLESS times. i suspect its the lack of prep people do in the tours, but ig that excuse can go for chazm too for simply not caring, which is fair. His last year run was nice tho, so i assume he switches his usual strats up...or could be that last year mnm players were just weak, idk.

A-

ITH: solid player. Building: consistency wise, he is up there with stresh, and he might just be slightly more versatile with his mon choices...so calling him one of the best builders, (which i clowned him for) might honeslty not be that far fetched. Altho he can build for sure, playing wise he isnt that good. definetly good enough to get a win or two vs anyone, but the chances of him getting just dominated and outpredicted in a game is much higher than the rest above. His consistent teams often make up for that issue tho, so we just have to see how well he preps. What i would recommend is to let him build, then draft an uber player who is actually slgihtly invested in learning the meta. that way u fix the issue, and have a very nice shoot at going posiitive.

Jeran: Solid player. due to having life, he is way below how good he used to be, but is still good enough to beat anyone i listed here, His teams are extremely predictable, which he will need some help with, but when it comes to playing, he is nice. At times, he will outpredict the fuck out of everyone here, but other times, he will make the worse play possible and lose. Tho just like with chazm, he will usually make the correct one + he a always has an amazing record in team tours.

B+

Zesty: Solid player with nice uber experience which will come in handy. he already started to fuck around with MnM so his meta knowledge is way above the rest of the tour players who are planning to play ubers + is able to build for himself too. Altho his teams sometimes arent that consistent, with some help, they are easily good enough to contend with the best imo. Also if he invests more time into the meta, which i assume he will, he could be among A

Cata: Very solid player, but not much of a builder. He will most likely get enough help from anyone regardless of what team he will be on for his teams, so imo that area is covered, but not necessarly the best solution. Playing wise, i would argue he the best by a bit, but the lack of meta experience will be evident once he plays vs some anti meta shit.

B

Zephry: mnm open winner, so u know he can get u a win or two. Playing wise, he is meh, and so are his teams tbh, but the amount memes he brings can sometimes get him an incredible mu and win. Altho he uses a lot of memes, there are some consistent weaknesses in all of his build, which a nice player will evidently notice. IF he incorporates some actual generic mons in his style, he could be even nicer

Skysolo: Altho he is a nice ubers player, the 2 round r1 loses in mnm open and ssnl really is not a good look. He will definitely need help with building, but playing wise, he is nice.

ESM: Cretive builder, but all that creativity he has will often backfire, since he just doesnt know the meta enough to see what works and what doesnt. A support would be nice for him, but playing wise, he can handle his own.

Multi and Metarioulu: none of them main mnm or play it much, but had some very nice successes in tours and are both solid players who can build on their own. Altho they ranked B, its mostly cause i havent seen enougn from the two to really grant a higher ranking.

Highlord: Used to be an extremely solid player and builder, but kinda lost his touch as he decided to domiante old gen ubers. Last year i hyped the fuck out of him, but idk anymore. he could def make some insane come back and thrash everyone here, including the likes of qt and stresh

B-

Eien: he only here cause he always gets played by some team in this tier eventually, so there has to be something i dont know about. personally, i havent seen anything from him in any mnm tour, and based on other tiers, he is just an above average player. tho i assume he will def invest some time into the tier if his team decideds to play him, and will most likely surprise me with some sick record ;;

Plenty of other capable mnm players are still out there, but the skill level now will be too simialr to make any noticable distinctions so imma just list em all here: gman, novafish(yes, he is actully nice), TectonicDestroyer, aesf, funbot.

prob forgot a couple when it came to honorbale mentions, but shit memory.

MnM skill level is lower than AG, so drafting tour players, and seeing them go positive is something that is very likely to happen as long as they get good teams, which is not hard to find tbh, so that is def one route a manager could take.
