    So... other than the bit crying about Lele, "PO WAS RIGHT, AS USUAL."

    :coffee:

    It's postbank meta. Prebank meta is dumb as Fuck.

    People are using specs pheromosa to great success right now so expect that opinion to change. I honestly do think tapu lele (more so psychic terrain) is the biggest problem in the OU meta and removing it makes the meta so much more enjoyable. Yes alola muk stops her but it's more than just stopping her. Im trying to make reqs for this suspect test to vote no ban on genesect

    You're gonna need Terminator Bug around if you want this meta to not go full retard and have half the Dex banned by April.

    So naturally, RIP Gene.

    It'll probably be banned. Meta is fun without it though so whatever. I want to see it without tapu lele running amok. Tapu lele is limiting as all hell though (pokemon who use priority to function are essentially unviable) and verdict out on pheramosa

    Other than that. It'll be fun

    I'll never understand how someone with no results can talk so reckless..... Not gonna even attempt to talk you off this ledge.

    If you're actually gonna play and not just run your mouth like usual, hit me up when you have a team.

    Tell me about it. Wanted to build A team around E Speed Multiscale Dragonite to show these fools what The OG Dragon can do with those tools. So they can put some respeck on Dnite's name. But nope can get Espeed Dnite currently. Nor Superpower.

    I just started playing post bank OU. Its refreshing so far not seeing the same things on Every team. Yes there are still staples like fini and lando, but most teams are at least diverse.

    What is interesting is Z moves are abundant prebank and seem to have died off post bank. The few I have seen them on is certain Heatrans and Lando to deal with certain Mons


    Also smogoon needs to get on their shit. If they are gonna post a usage I need to see the Pokemon broken down into tiers on the team builder instead of having to type or search for a Mon (especially the newer ones I can't remember).

    Also....Thank you based god for Ash Greninja. I always LOVED greninja but being able to use the anime god greninja is nice. Also I must say I am surprised Megagross was so high. I guess being a steel type is a hod send in a meta loaded with Fairy deities.

    I honestly expected top 5 to be
    Toxapex
    Greninja
    Lando
    Heatran
    Scizor since those seem to be everywhere
    FC:1864 9258 8415
    PSN: Death_Loner_Kage
    Umvc3: Learning Viper...plays tron strange dante strider

    I am willing to play trade and embrace the suck

    Hey I think I have a finalized team I want to make for singles.

    Specs/Timid Jolteon Thunderbolt, Volt Switch, Hidden Power (ice), Shadowball
    Scarfed/ Modest Salazzle Sludge Wave, Flamethower, Dragon Pulse, Hidden Power (ground)
    Life Orb/ Jolly Weavile Icicle Crash, Ice Shard, Pursuit, Throat Chop
    Leftovers/ Bold Vaporeon Scald, Wish, Protect, Roar
    Leftovers/ Impish Skarmory Brave Bird, Roost, spikes, Taunt
    Leftovers/ Adamant Tsareena, Trop Kick, U turn, Synthesis, Rapid Spin.

    Any suggestions? I've been thinking of switching Salazzle for Gengar so I can have A spin blocker. But I see more folks using defog though.

    How optimal is it to run two choice variants on a team now? Back then people seemed to be against it, but now I'm seeing it more and more. I guess with volt switch there are more opportunities for it to be practical.
    I'm sorry. Humor me!!

    If you can get your hands on timid tapu koko, use that over jolteo. Quite a bit stronger and fills the same role while having team support. Can run both uturn and volt switch for double the douchery. Can run brave bird to beat mega venusaur as well. Otherwise fine.

    Scarf salazzle........idk, i despise this thing competitively. It's very underwhelming. It also doubles up on what weavile is doing. Id change this for like, mega metagross or any other offensive mon

    Throat chop is for what? Weavile really doesnt need extra coverage. Might as well run knock off if possible.

    I dont mind vaporeon but i feel it's out of place on this team. Gonna kill momentum. If you can nab tapu fini do that but if not it's really fine. Im not sure what to replace. Maybe clefable?

    Skarm is fine

    Tsareena is okay. It's just really outclassed by tapu bulu.

    Yeah on A Volt Turn team it is pretty good. Because it allows you to not have to guess as much with switch ins and just let your choice pokemon safely switch in and do damage. Also people be sleeping on defensive volt switch or U turn pokes. My Tsareena gives my chocie pokemon so many free switch ins because due to her attacking last with U turn. She takes the hit that My Salazzle or Weavile would have taken. And now they can dish out good damage while staying healthy. And Vaporeon with that Wish support is lovely. I'm thinking about swapping salazzle for gengar because Gengar is still fast but has A lot more special attack so he'd hit harder. And be a more reliable check to the Tapu's especially Lele. But then I'd lose fire coverage for steel types. I mean I could run HP fire but doesn't hit as hard as a stab flamethower.

    Momentum is what rules the game now. For better or worse.

    Scarf salazzle........idk, i despise this thing competitively. It's very underwhelming. It also doubles up on what weavile is doing. Id change this for like, mega metagross or any other offensive mon

    Throat chop is for what? Weavile really doesnt need extra coverage. Might as well run knock off if possible.

    I dont mind vaporeon but i feel it's out of place on this team. Gonna kill momentum. If you can nab tapu fini do that but if not it's really fine. Im not sure what to replace. Maybe clefable?

    Skarm is fine

    Tsareena is okay. It's just really outclassed by tapu bulu.

    Jolteon with Volt asorb acts as my electric immunity

    Throat Chop on Weavile is there until Knock off is legal via pokebank

    Might swap out Salazzle for Gengar. Not sure if I'll keep him scarfed or not but he does it better with that high sp atk. I mainly want hi, scarfed as A Tapu Lele check

    Vapopreon acts as A back up physical wall to check threats that Skarmory can't I.E Aloan marowak. Protect allows me to scout choice users, and wish support is so good. Roar to deal with set up sweepers.

    Tsareena gets U turn and Rapid Spin. And Trop Kick's attack drop effect pisses people off lol.

    If you can get your hands on timid tapu koko, use that over jolteo. Quite a bit stronger and fills the same role while having team support. Can run both uturn and volt switch for double the douchery. Can run brave bird to beat mega venusaur as well. Otherwise fine.

    I think you're better off using a bulky ground or alola marowak type for electric immune as jolteon still has a hard time beating electric types while the others punish hard. It's fine though as koko is a legendary

    I thought throat chop was a dragon move honestly lol. I can stand by this replacement

    After that idk. There's no wincon on the team. I dont think using tsareena as a spinner is good especially with flying/fire types being fucking everywhere right now. Salazzle i just find underwhelming for lack of coverage and power. It's a decent stall breaker but tapu fini does that like 10000000x better. It doubles up with jolteon for role. I dont think you need to scarf something with 125 base speed either. Honestly probably better off using something else entirely here like maybe flynium salamence.

    I do have A Timid Tapu Koko. And yeah I do see Jolteon has A tough time dealing with other elec types. I was using Pallosand before as my Elec immune and it's ghost typing allowed for spin blocking. But it gets wrecked by Grass knot Koko's.

    Yeah I do find Tsareena having a hard time with switching in to Rapid Spin due to all the weaknesses it has from grass typing. I think Tsareena would function better as A choice Scarfer.

    As for win con. I guess A set up sweeper would be good? Gonna try Mega Metagross

    Edit: My team has no damn answer for Greninja. Vaporeon was my answer to that bastard. I need Vaporeon. She's too good.

    Give me a few days... We've got some shit-tier ice storm weather coming in, so I might lose power like the last time this shit hit.

    And D-Nite and Weavile were UU for ten minutes before getting insta-banned.

    Posting another match as Mood got me interested in using that fire moth. That Crit really helped me!

    Also do your matches.
    @po pimpus You really Wimpoding out?

    Cobalion, Empoleon, Ferrothorn and Scizor are all Steel-type, so Magneton's not actually alone.

    This is the kind of start of A battle that most would rage quit from. But I kept going. These battles are the most satisfying.
