I think Vaporeon was one of those who just missed the cut, but I think people generally prefer seismitoad for that role
Too much of the community is against Dynamaxing for it to stick around. The suspect testing is just a formality and people have already made up their minds.
yeah. Though again it probably fits Dracovish better, since Dracovish would only be marginally worse with a single move slot since it's coverage moves literally only exist to get around very specific matchups in the late gameI don't think the unga bunga is meant to be racist...or at the very least I don't think it's meant to reference Darmanitan in particular.
From my understanding it seems to be used in competitive games (I've seen it in Smash) when it comes to strategies that are simple, like using Darmanitan is basically just using your strongest attack with Gorilla Tactics. Basically so simple a caveman could do it.
Yeah, probably. As for Dracovish, at the very least it's one of the Pokemon who'll probably see a spike in usage without dynamaxing since it doesn't really want to Dmax anyways. Aegislash is another Pokemon who'll be better off without dynamaxing on that note, while stuff like gyarados and hawlucha are going to be significantly worseToo much of the community is against Dynamaxing for it to stick around. The suspect testing is just a formality and people have already made up their minds.
I feel like Dracovish won't get banned because there are ways to play around it in OU. The decisions made for SM OU shows us their stance on handling some of this stuff.
Keep in mind UU is only temporary for a lot of those pokemon since there is no other lower tier yetI'm glad Dhelmise went up in the rankings... definitely want to train one. I imagine the Rapid Spin boost helped.
It's unfortunate it might drop once it's hard counter Incineroar comes back, and hell folks might go with Decidueye over it due to the latter being more popular.
Yeah I assume he'll drop.
With these games killing a Pokemon means your more likely to run into more of them.
I've seen people say it's noticeable and Aegislash got multiple nerfs.
true enough, although I'd argue the lack of pursuit hurts Bisharp a lot and thus makes one of the better counters to it less prominent
Nope, you cannot select them.
Honestly even if you only play ranked in game it's worth being aware of the tiering on smogon for your specific format if only because a lot of the threats and strategies carry over. Though doubles is obviously significantly different
Yeah I get that, but the whole dynamax debate won't apply so if they ban it then tier changes according to that the smogon meta will be different to the in-game meta, correct?
