      • 2 weeks ago
        Anonymous

        Calyrex-Shadow, Miraidon and Koraidon are naturally fast and Calyrex-Ice can learn it. Not to mention Tornadus and Whimsicott are also common. Pairing Calyrex-Ice with his maid Indeedee you can set Trick Room with no repercussions outside of Imprison and spam Glacial Lance to shove dildo-shaped ice up your enemies' asses. Bonus points if you use Helping Hand.

              Fire also works in case you're that worried of Koraidon's Flare Blitz, Incineroar Flare Blitz or Will-o-Wisp, or Weezing Will-o-Wisp.
              The item is usually Clear Amulet to shit on the cat.

        Intrepid Sword only activating once (thus removing its counterplay to Intimidate given it's item slot is already full so no Clear Amulet) on top of the attack drop makes it, quite literally, Incineroar's b***h.

        People wanna blame Incineroar but it's more that the Gen 9 meta is unfavorable as frick towards Zacian and instead is very favorable towards Zamacenta.
        If baracat was the only reason then every single physical attacker would have been useless for the past three generations.

      It's really not that different from the SwSh one in actual animation, what's significantly worse is the camerawork. You cant tell that they didn't focus on it as much with quite a few moves because due to the open world battles allowing you to move the camera wherever there's little chance a player would even notice it.

        It is highly simplified even without taking into account the lack of camerawork thanks to the open world meme.

          The most insane thing about this strategy is that Psychic Terrain does not stop priority moves from working when you target your ally. It's almost as if Gayfreak encouraged this strategy.
          I remember losing a match because I had Psychic Terrain up, Indeedee on the field and my opponent had the ice Black person and Dusclops with Shadow Sneak. I didn't click Follow Me that turn because Psychic Terrain and I had calculated that any of my Pokemon would live any attack from a +0 ice Black person but apparently Shadow Sneak went through.

        It's Immune to Astral Barrage which means it has to Single Target
        Which means it's Team has to cover for it actually getting hit and if it Terras to survive a Knock Off Starstorm can frick it hard

        It's a super offensive team that needs to pick up KOs, Overheat is worth it

    Overheat would've won him the game depending on if it KO'd Zama or not right?
    That's a super unfortunate miss

      I feel the only reason I have evne a tinge of interest in Gen 10 is because I won't have to see this stupid bear literally no one likes anymore.

    Reg G winners so far:

    Indianapolis Regional - Miraidon
    Buenos Aires Special Event - IR Calyrex
    Bogota Special Event - Terapagos
    Carolina Special Event - Koraidon
    Stockholm Regional - Zamazenta

    That should be Zamazenta's first ever tournament win, right?

    Also, Terapagos has gotten to the final in 4 of the 5 events above, except the Buenos Aires Special Event.

    And all 3 Gen 9 restricted mons have won a tournament.
