    It has been that way for awhile. I haven't logged onto Netbattle or Shoddy to actually battle probably in about a month. I might have had a few battles here and there, but very few. Battles on Shoddy are usually to test out movesets I come up with, nothing more.

    Shoddy was fun at first but became torture quickly. I learned a lot about the metagame though which certainly helps with rating.

    I can't believe how many good pokemon aren't used. I know Suicune isn't what it used to be, but it can still sweep so many teams, as can Raikou. I know times have changed and blah blah blah from Advance, but so many pokemon have practically been thrown under the bus.

    Then we have those that I don't know why people use so much. I'm sorry, but Electivire never deserved the usage it got. I remember when I ran that Mantine team, and Vire would get Motor Drive boosts all the time and it would still just be awful. Then again, its usage has plummeted (unless things have changed since...not battling).

    I also have a beef with Cradily, but I know people will come in with all of these damage calculations saying how uberly awesome it is. I'm sorry, but it is SO easy to stall its brains out. Cradily just prolongs a battle and doesn't really do anything. It is like Blissey without any way at all to inflict damage. Let's not forget a weather change sinks it.

    Back to underrated pokemon, I'm surprised Milotic and Regice have fallen off the map so much. I mean, in all my times on shoddy I only saw 3 Regice and about 5 Milotic...and I've battled a lot. For those who think Blissey is too OU and all that, Regice is a very good option. SR really hampers it, but it has some pretty cool capabilities.

    Also, I have a beef with people who lead with Gyarados. It's an awful lead, I'm sorry. DD! Weezing comes in! Thunderbolt! They probably wouldn't stay in, but that Gyarados has accomplished nothing. CB Gyarados is awesome though. I wish people would use that.

    That no one ever was.

    To catch them is my real quest, to train them is my cause.

    I will travel across the land, searching far and wide

    Each pokeon will understand, the power that's inside...

    That's all I remember.

    Yuck, I'm done with battling, any generation. I still occasionally Netbattle, but not even close to as much as I used to. I find rating a lot more fulfilling these days.

    My style really works against me in DP, and I'm not very good battling with the attack mentality.

    However, I suggest running Explosion Azelf with a Raikou. you sweep stuff like crazy. I can actually use that strategy with decent success, otherwise I fail at sweeping things.

    If I see one more reference to that awful, "funny" internet saying "doo j00 kiek Mudkipz" I will blow up. I'm not trying to be all grumpy but it is really annoying. I can't believe people find that funny or amusing at all.

    And I'm a team rater, not a profile rater

    I'm sorry but I'm one to go against fads.

    Also Cradily is very overrated. Yes, I know I think everything is overrated but a lot of things are!

    Not using a certain pokemon should never be taboo, and if it is I am leaving this site and pokemon forever

    Eh, so many things tick me off about today's metagame. I've pretty much stopped playing all generations, it isn't fun like it used to be.

    Is it just me or did DP ruin the metagame? Now I know the haters are going to come in, but hear me out.

    Special attackers have become so powerful that about the only truly reliable wall is Blissey, so its usage is even more obese than she is. Other walls need a bit of support and are much tougher to use.

    On the physical side, you pretty much need three pokemon to really wall out physical attacks since there isn't a Blissey of physical walling and Skarmory isn't as powerful as people think it is.

    Not only that, but some sweepers like Lucario and Infernape run more than one set and can pretty much obliterate any counter switching in expecting another set. Then they have potential to sweep your team. For example, if Swampert switches into Infernape expecting a CB variant and it uses NP, you're in a lot of trouble.

    Now we also have Scarfs and Specs, making things pretty complicated as far as going about beating things is concerned. Sweepers have become so powerful and diverse while walls have very few new tools to work with.

    Sweepers dominate the metagame, and I'm so mad when I'm beaten by an obviously inferior player who just uses an overwhelming amount of powerful sweepers you can't possibly counter.

    In other words, too much offense for me.

Yeah, this is it for me. Five years ago today, I joined PC. Now my time here is coming to a close a half a decade later.

I won't go too in-depth here besides to say that my battling skills (and interest, to some degree) have eroded to the point where they couldn't be salvaged without time and effort that I can no longer muster. Furthermore, it just hasn't been all that fun for several years now for a ton of different reasons I do not wish wish to list, and having fun is the point...

This blog won't be very long. I obviously haven't posted many of these. Yeah, school can be a pain when you have a lot of homework and not a lot of energy.

Anyway, I originally thought that the second iteration of Stage 3 (to use Smogon's wording) would just be Manaphy and the already-OU Latias...and that's how it was going to be. But now Garchomp is being added into the test according to Jumpman, I would assume due to the close 44-41 vote in favor of it being Uber.

I figured I'd have some fun and predict the Stage 3 voting results. You can post some too if you'd like. I'll probably be wrong on about all of these, but I thought I'd have some fun so why not?


Shaymin-S - Uber

I think this will be voted Uber, actually. I think people are afraid of hax and afraid of Skymin's power and Speed. I actually don't blame them--it's a pretty effective Pokemon. I just wish...

They have finally been released, and you can find them here. I'm glad they're out, especially since I contributed to them this time around :3

The biggest "shocker" to me was Blissey at number 14 (if you include the Rotom formes, which I will do for this whole entry). How the mighty have fallen. Blissey is probably the best defensive Pokémon in the game, and it's not even close to the top ten. As a user of Blissey, my guess is that Blissey being vulnerable to Trick as well...

I know, long time, no see, right? People often complain about how S&M is dead, and while there isn't much we can do about that (after all, we cannot control who decides to frequent in the section), I figured that I might as well start using this again to maybe, possibly start some discussion. Honestly, I am still a bit puzzled by the failure of the Metagame Discussion Thread, and the best conclusion I can come to is that it failed because it was too bland or boring in some way. Hopefully I can...
