Hi, I'm not a player of the tier but wanted to ask if there was like a "sticky" type post that explains why ubers has bans now/ is not a banlist? I've read multiple good posts explaining it in the past but couldn't find one pinned on the forum. Would love to use to quicklink to people who pull the "whaaaa? banlist bans terrible tier" schtik with something articulate. Thanks!

Hi, what strategies/changes can my team have, to beat screens HO easier?

This is my current team: https://pokepast.es/395e48c327810c63
(I use defensive xern cuz I hate dealing with opposing zyg)

I lost hard to a screens with Froslass, Grimmsnarl, Xerneas, Zekrom, Groudon, & DD dusk-mane.
Couldn't defog screens due to Grimm's taunt, & I ended up getting essentially 6-0d by boosted Xern since Reflect allowed it to beat my dusk-mane.

If there are general suggestions on how to beat such screens teams, I'd appreciate it thank you!

Firstly, you can actually Defog on Grimmsnarl with Yveltal because Prankster doesn't affect Dark Types. You'd want to Defog when it's not on the field otherwise it'll set them up again, though.

Against screens, lead with something fast that can hit Froslass with >1 move (because being disabled into a choice locked move is really bad) and do as much damage to Grimmsnarl as possible so that it can't set up both screens more than once. You'd do well to add some speed to your team that gives offensive power (Yveltal isn't that) or more reliably takes on Xerneas and/or Groudon, both of which have a really good MU vs. you.

Hello guys , i search a greeat nature for my calyrex-shadow scarf. Ty
You would definetly want a timid nature to capitalize both on Calyrex’s good speed, and the choice scarf it holds. It can revenge kill just about anything, except for Dark types. I would also recommend investing into its special attack stat as well

This is a question I'd like to be answered by someone who has been analyzing trends in SS Ubers recently. What type of Hyper Offense is current performing the best in ladder and tournaments? Any particular leads that have a positive match up against other HO leads? I'm interested to know the statistics going forward. Thank you!

I feel like Webs were performing the most in earlier seasonal rounds, everyone was bringing them cus its a good way to defeat unknown opponents with little prep to work with, people are lazy etc, and its the most popular style on the ladder. The exception was with players Like Lunala who were just using traditional Lead hazard Hyper Offense and I feel like those were much more consistent and Successful, Luna only lost like one game ever in her seasonal run with the team she kept spamming, which proves its worth imo and webs tends to lose more, this might be due to more usage data however. Luna's team was good against the traditional web hyper offense styles players were bringing too, as in it actually had reliable counterplay while others tends to ignore counterplay.

Screens are also somewhat okay, but i feel those were a bit more inconsistent, I'd rather web, but I'd honestly just bring a traditional hyper offense. Webs work against players who don't really prepare for webs, bring slow defoggers etc, Scarf Yveltal is so strong against webs for instance which is why I used the set on my original SS DLC2 build that i posted back in december, I prefer HOs that can function without webs or screens for this reason, traditional HO's are not so reliant on these setup tools.

Screens Regieleki is probably better than Grimsnarl right now, as far as screens goes. but ill list the best leads imo: Webs: Slurpuff, Rocks: Aerodactyl or Groudon, Screens: Regieleki


Is it likely that Zacian-H will be suspected?
Pretty early to call this, there's been discussion along with Calyrex-SR, but don't expect anything major to come of it, maybe it is sign of things to come.

Thanks for the quick reply, I was pretty intrigued by the possibility of both Zacian forms being banned
