    God damn Salazzle is A straight up Nightmare for Stall teams. Made 3 stall teams rage quit on Showdown due to Salazzle just fucking them over with corrosion Toxic and disable. Gonna have to swap out Incineroar for it. Might use Incineroar on a Doubles team.

    So I checked every post for the last several pages, and the OP, and nowhere is this tournament mentioned beyond vague "starting soon, get your teams ready" posts.

    So, again... WHAT MATCHES?

    Bulu tends to run Band or Assault Vest. In rarer cases, Miracle Seed/Lefties/either Grassium Z or Rockium Z to net some surprise OHKOs on stuff it can't normally beat easily.

    One other thing I forgot, Doggo and Snako Zygarde are allowed.


    Anyway, Z-Eevee has been banned on Doubles OU.

    Oh, and finish your teams soon *hint hint*.

    Alrighty, I'm sure you all have has enough time to make teams. Time Limit is now in effect and ends in 2 weeks. Get em done.

    Anyone challenging Loco will have to use PM's or Discord to talk to him until he's allowed to post again.

    Pg 9, Pg 11 respectively. I have to find the matchup listings but it was posted.

    D-Night was BL in Gen 3.

    In Gen 4 he was UU until Sally got the boot.

    Gen V Multiscale came and made him a powerhouse.

    Dragonite has always been good, but until Multiscale, it was just Discount Salamence that could Focus Punch things.

    Garchomp pretty much dug Dragonite's grave up until Multiscale. It had no niche of its own; Garchomp was faster, resist S/R, and had immunity to Twave. If you tried to run mixed or DD sets, Mence would outclass it. I remember when platinum came out and they announced that Mence would now receive Outrage, and people were posting "RIP Dragonite" lol.

    That UU meta is where I need to be (:

    Dragonite turned to shit the moment the faster dragons rocked up.

    Speed is everything if you're not playing a Trick Room team.

    Lies. Dragonite never was really good until multiscale. It was a lesser salamence cause salamence had the coom ability and that speed.

    Gen v gave it multiscale and then it got super good giving mence the middle finger. Garchomp has the best stat spread of any pokemon ever so it doesnt care

    Its crazy how they power creeped the shit out of this game, and Garchomp is still a god. One of the biggest mistakes that has somehow been overshadowed by even worse mistakes. Thanks gamefreak.

    They keep Garchomp around because it's both popular and a developer favorite. Has nothing to do with "balance".

    It's the same reason Slowpoke and Psyduck families keep popping up in every region's Pokedex alongside the Gastly line.

    So we all gonna act like Extreme Speed didn't do anything for Dragonite??? Banded Extreme speed from D nite did damage. Like frail pokemon after stealth rock damage were not safe. bandnite with E Speed could get surprise sweeps. And shut down priority users that would normally check the other Dragons thanks to E speeds +2 priority. I don't get how anyone could call a poke with A base stat total of 600 bad or useless. Outclassed overall by the other Dragon's sure. But Dragonite did have A niche when E speed and Multiscale came about.

    Yeah moreso than Multiscale, Extremespeed was the biggest draw for me personally. With it's high attack stat, whether it was DDnite or CBnite at +1 with +2 priority you're pretty much a god mid-late game.

    Classic threats like Weavile and Mamoswine all fall to the wayside if you've sufficiently weakened them prior (+hazards) and with advent of team preview it was easy to see when you could get started cleaning or setting up. Multiscale is what put it over the edge in terms of usability, but seeing how easy it is to spam Rocks it wasn't the biggest draw.
    It could be Esther Baxter vs. Pat Morita in drag and half of this board would be like "black chicks don't really turn me on sooo..." - Randomnigga

  • EphidelEphidel Old Man SRK Joined: Posts: 14,961 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Extremespeed on nite is still pretty good, but when other priority attackers started opening up it was hard to justify slotting Dragonite up until Multiscale. Even still, you had to take accountability of having a spinner in the case that you'd have to use Dragonite earlier than you normally would. Still would be dumb to underestimate it, because it can surprise you out of nowhere and mess you up somehow. With their checks removed, Garchomp/Outrage Mence was so ridiculous they were virtually unstoppable in D/P

    Inner focus Dragonite still outclasses Altaria, and to a lesser extent Flygon. However, those pokemon have found niches in their respective metagames.

    Here, have fun with this. Volcarona sets up and wins. It beats so many gen vii pokemon i love it

    I havent lost yet. No replays cause i did this on phone app and replay recording is dumb.

    Few things i have learned:

    Tapu Fini is the best defogger in the game. This thing is soooooooooooooooo good. Fucks stall over too.
    Toxapex is fatter than i imagined
    Fire types need fini as a partner, no seriously, they compliment so wel.
    Magaerna is.....lulzy
    Alola Marowak is overrated but still good
    Suspect tier is a lot of fun without genesect running amok.
    We overestimated pheromosa greatly....for now
    Fuck tapu lele


    Im liking this gen so far.
