Can anyone give the ideas to replace Dugtrio in Stall teams? Its possible to Weaville and Tyranitar back... Please send a moveset and ev spread or a completely SPL team alterntive. I really apreciate it :)
As far as I know, Dugtrio's role on stall teams is keeping threats such as Heatran, Tyranitar, Toxapex, Chansey, and others from roaming around freely who would otherwise greatly trouble stall team itself (Heatran 2HKOs Mega Sableye with Magma Storm with residual damage, Tyranitar breaks havoc with Choice Band, and Toxapex basically sits there and spams Scald to deplete Mega Sableye's Recover PP and negatively affect its general longevity). Also according to my experience, Dugtrio also trapped and revenge killed Mega Charizard X which is one of the most infamous threat to stall teams that lack Quagsire, and this is something Mega Tyranitar and Weavile is not capable of doing.Can anyone give the ideas to replace Dugtrio in Stall teams?

Yes, stall is currently the strongest archetype and the higher up the ladder you go the more common stall will be. Rain teams work well up until about 1500+. When Arena Trap is banned this is likely to change though.Arena Trap aside, has SPL stall been doing well in OU lately? Got back into OU with a rain team during the suspect so I haven't seen a stall team in a while
Just that, KyuW have the always reliable Ice Beam to make use of its great SpA, but KyuB doesn't even learn Ice Punch, that force it to run mixed or run Z-Freeze Shock to have a physical Ice STAB.How come Kyurem-B is OU but Kyurem-W is ubers? Is lack of physical ice STAB that weakening for it?
There was a tournament with no Z-Crystals allowed and at the time only a few megas were out but IDK if that's gonna happen again. I haven't heard as many complaints regarding Z-Moves as I did with Mega Evos back in the day. I think people are beginning to accept the idea that GF is adding broken elements to the game and that we'll just have to get used to them.this might be more of an om question but is there a post about a no mega and no z crystal meta? I remember last gen there was one for no mega so I was just curious.
Celesteela @ LeftoversWhat's the EV spread for mixed defensive Celesteela, and what do those EV's do?
This can probably help with both questions.What does it mean in the smogon dex if the mon is described as a pivot?
Also what does it mean to have momentum in a match?
I have never seen Raptor in this meta, and that's because it's not good. As a breaker, Pinsir-Mega is much better. It has powerful STAB priority, decent bulk, SD and better speed. On teams that already have a mega, Gyarados can also break past many walls and is bulkier, has a better typing and has DD.Is Staraptor the least viable or should I be looking at other mons like the Z-Fly abusers or Mega Pinsir? Is there a hopeful minimal niche for the BirBL?
Long story short, Mega Evolutions cannot be on a lower tier than the Base Pokemon, so it's OU because base Latios is OU.Why is Mega Latios not being labeled as "OU by technicality" on showdown? Since it doesnt have the required usage percentage to be fully considered OU, like Mega garchomp.
In the situation you're describing, Latios-Mega would be labeled as "OU by technicality". TBH I'm not certain why it hasn't been labeled as such.Long story short, Mega Evolutions cannot be on a lower tier than the Base Pokemon, so it's OU because base Latios is OU.
The opposite can happen, though.
But BL is a banlist -- that's literally what BL stands for. Wasn't the idea for making BL a tier shot down multiple times since it's just UU but with all the banned 'mon, making an incredibly unbalanced meta right out of the gate?No because in the case you would play BL as a tier (if i'm not wrong you can do this in a server) you couldn't do
Yeah, i only supposed a gamemode that is more fun than seriousBut BL is a banlist -- that's literally what BL stands for. Wasn't the idea for making BL a tier shot down multiple times since it's just UU but with all the banned 'mon, making an incredibly unbalanced meta right out of the gate?
