    I think the whole board is inactive. There's nothing to post about ._.

    You seem to have been pretty inactive recently, Anti. I think we could do with some smogonners.

    Hazerider is hilarious. It'd be cool to see if we could get him in PC. Love to see what'd he say to a few people making bad teams xD.

    I think Smogon should really reconsider what they put in the opinion section of Gengar's analysis >=)

    Today on Shoddy...wow, good times. I'll never forget that warstory where hazerider had the 300 references and totally hammered that log. rofl

    I am convinced not to be as narrow-minded when it comes to musical opinions! But first I need to know D_A's favorite song =D So spit it out

    I like to abuse IPL's JollyWobb strat, meh...

    If by the logic that OU pokemon could beat Ubers, and Ubers cannot get past certain OU pokemon, you could just lump EVERYTHING in one tier. Metagross, Ttar, Blissey, Garchomp all are used in Ubers to great success due to their ability to counter several Uber pokemon and/or pose a significant threat on their own.

    Overcentralisation is the one and only criteria for Ubers.
    Usage statistics are the one and only thing that differentiates OU, BL, UU and NU.

    My greatest fear could be realized: OUs turning into a mini uber metagame.

    Regardless of how you feel about Wobbuffet or Garchomp, I think we can ALL say we fear Darkrai, Manaphy, and ESPECIALLY Deoxys-Attack more.

    Seriously, attack Deoxys in OUs is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, but Dugtrio usage would certainly climb. I wish Mamo and friends luck switching in, as they will need it.

    Seriously, Deoxys-Attack can break UBER walls, so by that principle4 we might as well unban Lugia and Giratina. I'm usually resistant to change, and this is why...lol Manaphy is REALLY good. REALLY good.

    I mean, at least Wobbuffet and Garchomp are at least somewhat VIABLE arguments...Attack Deoxys? You have got to be kidding me. If you think Garchomp is good...

    I'm sure most ubers could be beaten in OUs, but they would certainly over centralize things. At this point, I say we just keep everything the way it was before - Wobbuffet in ubers, Garchomp in OUs, and everything else in ubers. I'm so sick of this tier nonsense.

    I saw that topic on Smogon and i was like LOLLOLOLOL when someone said "How does Darkrai beat Blissey 1 on 1 ?"

    *Facepalm* Focus Punch and Dark Void anyone XD


    Did you also see that "Why is Manaphy Uber?" topic. Some people want that in OU aswell. Wow.

    Gengar has three immunities and a 4x res to Bug, but the Scarf set is weak anyway. I would run LO Gar with Explosion for Blissey or something.

    I never had a major problem with Chomp and Wobbuffet, and to a lesser extent other powerful sweepers like Mamoswine on some of my teams. The definition of counter is archaic and in my opinion does not have any real importance in the D/P metagame. It would not work for D/P simply because of the increased number of pokemon and the sheer versatility that they have. Is Gyarados a Lucario counter? What if it has HP Electric? This manner of discussing pokemon is not achieving anything, the correct way to counter a pokemon is to simply play around it. So what if Garchomp has no true counter? You could always switch out to a Steel-type on Outrage, sacrifice a pokemon to revenge-kill it, etc.
    A team also needs to have a way of dealing with Garchomp in the first place, be it Ice Beam or Ice Shard, or a Scarfer. The most important thing to avoid is to create a team that has a huge weakness, Dragonite/Sala/Flygon/Chomp/Gliscor/Suicune is still Mamo weak as 5/6ths of it is slaughtered by Mamo.
    What a team needs is not a counter, but a "check".
    I heard the term "check" mentioned first by Maniaclyracist on Smogon, it is basically a pokemon that can revenge-kill the said pokemon, can't switchin on all its attacks BUT can switchin on some.
    If I named a check for Garchomp, it would probably be Jumpluff, an example first quoted by Bologo on Smogon.
    Simply a Jumpluff with Encore/Sleep Powder/U-turn can switchin on Earthquake and Swords Dance, Encore and U-turn. It can't switchin on Outrage which does not make it a true counter.

    Somehow it seems that people are voting to ban every Uber that would be balanced in OU. I saw a Darkrai discussion recently, and it seems that one of the major points is that it is useless with Sleep Clause and an inferior/similar Gengar.
    I won't make a tl;dr paragraph on this, but just to mention Darkrai has 125 Base speed and around the same defenses as Spiritomb and no Pursuit weakness.

    What would happen next? Deoxys-F being argued for unbanning because "Lucario/Mamoswine/Metagross beat it with priority moves"? This seems rather frivolous.

    To quote a post made by Aldaron on the Darkrai topic on Smogon:

    I don't want Darkrai in my OU metagame.

    Just because.

    I don't.

    lol Slack Off Infernape lol

    I have 5 tests in the next two days, so I won't be around until the weekend lol. I have a grammar test and an SAT words test tomorrow, and then a math, Spanish, and Civial War test on Thursday. Joy. I know what finals feel like though =D

    You know, I really with they would have given Skarmory freaking Intimidate, just to laugh at the phys/special split which totally tilted things towards sweepers. It's incredibly irritating how Salamence has more useful physical resistances than any wall except maybe a few steels. It's ridiculous.

    Also, I found the most interesting nickname for Deoxys-Speed...Deoxys-Suck...lol. I actually think it's a pretty good pokemon.

    what a rip-off it is that sweepers have better defensive ttyping and often recovery than walls.

    I totally agree, why is the blue hell doe Infernape, need or even get Slack Off ? C'mon Gamefreak, give it Snorlax already.


    ive run a Sub punch weavile, tis fun =)

    And Aquillae i totally agree, Bulky DDMence >> DDBulky Gyara, Roost and speed sways it for me.

    Toxic/Wish/Roost/Dragon Claw mence is pretty sweet aswell.

    Speaking of Wobby and Chomp, I think the current definition of ubers is flawed. I think over centralization should be the most important thing, so that if these supposed ubers really are uber, people will have to go to extreme measures to beat them. That's why I'm for Wobby and Chomp to be in OUs mainly...they don't over centralize anything ._. It's a whole mess.

    And seriously, what a rip-off it is that sweepers have better defensive ttyping and often recovery than walls.

    As for me, I've never been a fan of Toxispikes. They never come in handy, and so often I find only one layer down so the team is infected with the inferior normal poison status, which sucks. Toxic is okay in my book for breaking walls (I'm looking at you, Hippowdon and Moonlight Cresselia).

    Also, Assurance Tar sounds cool...even without SR, Sand Stream damages a lot of stuff. That would make switching bulky grounds in on Tar quite difficult, and especially old Bronzong. And really, Bronzong is only used because people are Mamo weak.

    Just to reiterate what I think about Gengar - it is an overrated piece of poo. It dies to any attack (especially Pursuit) and can't even hit that hard. For specs sets, Mence and Lucario are way better IMO. Scarf Hypnosis is over valued and easy to absorb, and even if they predict your switch, it can't do much and you have a free switch-in for another pokemon. WoW Gar is okay though.

    Hehe, you should include Punishment on that set for CroCune or something...

    I would see Assurance working on that set with Stealth Rock in play, for Gyarados as it is 150 BP after STAB and the previous boost. Assurance is kinda its most powerful STAB move, so #_#

    Given the number of sweepers with handy abilities (Intimidate on Salamence/Gyarados), great typing (Heatran, Metagross), above average defenses, the transition from stall to sweeping isn't that hard given that Heatran walls stuff like Porygon-Z and Azelf, Lucario makes a decent switchin to Tyranitar (4x Rock & Dark resist %_%) and other stuff.

    Recently I have been questioning the effectiveness of Toxic Spikes. For one it forces me to use Tenta/Forry, it does not do anything to steel-types or Levitators (Cress and stuff), and it feels like it is generally inferior to Spikes + Stealth Rock, in the sense that Toxic doesn't even do much to a team and that it has the unpleasant effect of giving Guts boosts.

    Actually I would post one of my teams in the S&M board but it either contains Wobby or Chomp, so yeah $_$

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...
