Hey, when approximately will the viability ranking thread be up?
They do, the recommended spread is a Relaxed nature (+Def, -Spe) with 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def EVs and 0 Spe IVs. Its gen 7 analysis page explains it well:do iv's and ev's matter on ditto?
Ditto copies all of its foe's stats except for HP; thus, 252 HP EVs are used to maximize Ditto's bulk. Since Ditto copies the majority of its foe's stats, its IVs are only relevant in three cases: determining its HP stat, determining its Hidden Power type, and in the rare mirror matchup. In a mirror matchup between two Ditto, the faster Ditto will Transform first and be left with 5 PP. A Pokemon cannot Transform into an already Transformed Pokemon, so the slower Ditto will retain all of its PP and will Struggle last. 0 Speed IVs with a Relaxed nature aim to create the slowest untransformed Ditto. 252 Defense EVs are used with the Relaxed nature to minimize the amount of damage taken from opposing Struggle, while 4 Attack EVs give a slight boost to the damage output of Struggle. 0 Speed IVs and 31 IVs in every other stat give Ditto Hidden Power Ice, allowing it to significantly damage defensive Landorus-T. 30 Special Attack, 30 Special Defense, and 1 Speed IV can be used for Hidden Power Ground, which allows Ditto to countertrap Magnezone.
Gamefreak is trying to balance the game, so the cuts in movepool. The problem it's that good mons still good, and bad mons (like the normal types) still bad.So uh, I’m not super competitive and haven’t really been in the meta since ORAS, but is it just me or all all he movesets severely lacking? Most Pokémon only get a few offensive moves of different types, usually just their STAB(s) and then a normal move. Plus sometimes a coverage move is only available in their weaker attack stat. Is this just because Home transfer of past gen tutor moves isn’t available yet? Or is it because they removed so many moves this gen? And what about the new Pokémon?
Incineroar is in the foreign part of the swsh dex, and fully usable in swsh, so it is coded in the games and therefore usable in random battlesCan someone tell me why I see pokemon like Incineroar in Gen 8 OU Randoms on Pokemonshowdown despite it not even being in the Pokemon Sw/Sh Pokedex?
Yeah, if the boost from the D-max move is useless (such as Gengar getting an attack boost from Ghost moves) and the G-max move is not (Gigantamax Gengar's trapping move for instance).Is there ever a reason a Pokémon (like gengar, for example) would Dmax instead of Gmax (for applicable Pokémon)?
The main difference you're looking at is the new Egg Move mechanic.Any changes to the breeding mechanics? Does inheriting Abilities and natures and Poké Balls and moves work exactly the same as Gen VII still?
Grassy Surge is HA on Rillaboom (so unreleased)Are there any Pokemon in SS OU that have Electric/Psychic/Grassy/Misty Surge as abilities? (Exclude Rillaboom.) If this question has been asked before, can you give me the answer to that question? Thanks.
Scarf seems more common, as Gorrila Tactics is effectively Choice Band, and so we generally go for Speed now that we have an Attack Boost. But Band hits like a truck. It depends on what is your play style I guess.What are the sets for Darmantian right now? Is band or scarf better/more widespread?
