• Another scrumptious episode of Bulbacast has been uploaded to YouTube. Watch it here. I hope you don't feel desserted after watching this one.
  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.

Smogon will just make up rules about Megas anyway.
they haven't, and I don't see why they would
aside from banning two mega stones, namely the ones for lucario and kangaskhan

Edit: and gengar, forgot that

Is Double Team non-competitively viable? Like, Battle Maison and stuff?

I have no idea so this may be obvious but
They're treating Megas like Smash treats items, then?

it's viable if you're a being who has the capability to control luck and chance

otherwise it's not reliable at all in most scenarios

it's also a dick strategy, but I won't stop anyone and their troll efforts

No, but really, how the actual fuck did you get 100 straight wins in the Battle Maison?

Re: Random Messages Issue #11

In other words, rules about Megas. They're already here.
and thank fucking god, too
I for one enjoy a metagame that isn't ruined by three overpowered bastards

not at all
megas are a totally legitimate strategy, if anybody gets mad at you for using mega pokemon, punch them in the face for being a moron

89, technically

iirc I was using sharpedo, sableye, and hydreigon? might have been mega pinsir or mawile instead of hydreigon.

I'll post the sets in a minute

Re: Random Messages Issue #11

I only search smogon and stuff to know what EV distribution is the best, and maybe some good attack options to use since I can't remember every single move existing. Otherwise, I don't really stick to the tier-thingys and I don't care what's classified as a good pokemon. If I can use a pokemon I like just fine, I use them.

Re: Random Messages Issue #11

sharpedo @focus sash
-waterfall
-crunch
-destiny bond
-protect

has enough power to 2 shot most pokemon, usually it's an OHKO if they're weak. If they're too bulky for it to 2HKO I'll switch out. Then I have it destiny bond the next pokemon. killing two birds with one shark.

sableye @leftovers
-confide/taunt
-will-o-wisp
-knock off/confide
-recover

don't remember what the exact set was, my competitive set for it is taunt/recover/wow/knock off but this is different from competitive. pretty self explanatory?

hydreigon @life orb
-draco meteor
-dark pulse
-fire blast/earth power
-roost/flash cannon/whatever

what do I need to say?

pinsir @pinsirite
-return
-quick attack
-substitute/swords dance
-earthquake

pretty absurd power here

mawile @mawilite
-play rough
-swords dance
-fire fang
-sucker punch

yeah

focus sash is really good in 3 vs. 3


I start to found the peeak a boo sableye.
well, that's a cute way to look at it

I associate Banette, Sableye, and Mawile with one another. Mawile has no reason to be in this list, but it is.

They now all have Megas and everything is ordered in the Poke-verse.

OK, but my entire point was that whether every pokemon has a Mega or not, competitive meta will get these rules for the same reason so anyone who cares anything about Smogon's guidelines will have this list of Megas they agree not to use.

And yes, you could say I care about Smogon, even if only to try to beat higher-tier pokemon with lower-tier ones.

Oh no! D:

mawile is sableye's counterpart

I was never a Sableye fan. I mean, it was pretty cool
But I really like the pinkness of its Mega evo ;v;
And they didn't over-design it!
