    I'm not going to bother trying to determine it's exact EVs. We can see it has EVs, use your own brains to figure out how this effects the numbers I'm about to give. I'd narrow it down more but it'd be way more work figuring out if those EVs are 50 or 100 or 25 or what, so just going to do it the...

    I was trying to start on Decidueye's, but ehhh... it's not easy. You're still going to have a huge range. And the fact that they have EVs makes it annoying since you have to do a lot of guess work on what the exact EV total is. Plus still not knowing IVs. You could get a range but it'd be +/-...

    Official site's description mentions turning Giga Impact into Pulverizing Pancake.

    Snorlax's has long been confirmed to be Giga Impact.

    This seems unusual and outside the leaker's MO. If these are the stats of Decidueye, then it is not particularly grand (and once again, I was not arguing it would be good). But not sure I buy it. And well, that is exactly my point. GameFreak does not have any mechanic that would allow them to...

    "Only" as in "less than 7" which was what I responded to. It is still a significant amount. Where exactly have you heard 95 DEF anyway? As far as I know we only have Dartrix's stats, and even then we cannot narrow it down any further than a range of stats (with 85 being the high end, I believe).

    Ghost resists Poison and Bug. Decidueye is not weak to those. It has only 5 weaknesses. Along with 4 resistances and two immunities. Plus I was not making a comment on its competitive viability. I was explaining why they likely chose to make a sniper defensive.

    It seems to me that the defenses of Decidueye are meant to represent the positional advantage that archers have. In any game with archers or snipers they usually have terrible defenses. But they're almost always one of your last units to die. This is because of their ability to keep their...

    I mean, ideally your archer is not discovered because everyone is dead. But obviously being quick is always a benefit no matter your strategic purpose. But it is not a defining feature of archers. Thinking about it, I'm pretty sure the high defenses are supposed to be GameFreak's way of...

    Eh, this is true in some RPGs but definitely not "pretty much every." In Disgaea Archers have bad Speed Growth but good accuracy and attack growth. Final Fantasy Tactics archers have the same speed, movement, and evasion rates as Knights. It's all over the place in the Fire Emblem series, some...

    I mean this has pretty much been my point all along. We lack enough information, especially HA and new threats, to assign viability rankings at this point. Everyone remember when XY came out Talonflame was predicted to maybe get use in RU and UU. Conversely, everyone predicted Barbacle would...

    tbh 50% of Greninja's popularity is probably directly related not to its design, nor its capabilities in competitive battling, but from being decided to represent G6 in Smash Bros. I don't have any numbers to back that up. But I'd be willing to bet on it.

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    Personally my big problem with G4 is the terrible Sinnoh Dex (yes, I know it got fixed in Platinum. I never bought Platinum. I played Pearl and skipped Platinum because I didn't like Pearl). Fire-types: Chimchar, Ponyta. In a region with a Fire-type E4! Electric-types: Shinx, Pachirisu...

    It's bad defensive type is the same either way. It doesn't really change if it's fast or slow. Fast: Spirit Shackles > Target. Target takes damage and is trapped. Target attacks Decidueye > Decidueye defeated. Target is not trapped. Spirit Shackles > Target. Target takes damage and is...

    How? It still does all the same things.
