IT'S FINK DUMBASS
OU Forum Leader
Well, the best place would be the Ruins of Alph subforum at the moment. They have some discussion threads and also viability rankings and check/counter compilation threads. You can also ask questions specific to the old generation metagames in their SQSA thread. As for articles, there are a plethora of old articles in the articles part of the website that can be found on the home page, but I’m not familiar with any that specifically break things down with regards to how to play and build at a fundamental level. I’d advise using the RoA subforum and their SQSA thread for starters while using tournament replays (in that subforum) as resources and reference points for team structures and how to play.What are the best resources for understanding the OU metagame at a high level for the last few gens? (V - VII really). Are there any decent articles that do a good 'round-up' of all the major themes, playstyles, common teams for each gen? Perhaps moreso for V/VI as VII is still active. And if it's not an article or two, what would be the best way to understand some major concepts?
