I love Eisuce so much, it's such a stupid design but I love it, it's so adorable with its little anxiety face underneath <3

Oh I am SO sick of seeing Libero Cinderace - people think that they're pro players just because they use it and sweep but it's ridiculously easy to win with something as OP as that. Shame as Cinderace started off as one of my favourites but now I can barely look at it, same as with Urshifu.

Agreed! In and of itself, I really like it but it's just ridiculously broken to the point I don't feel right using it. It's really annoying that it defines so much of the metagame that whenever I make a team, I have to be like "what counters Cinderace" and use a slot up. You can almost feel the absolute salt when somebody knows they're losing and cracks out the G-Max Cinderace to sweep through you, I just don't get what's fun about resorting to that? As soon as you bring something in that can maybe beat it (like my Rock Blast/Skill Link Cinccino), up goes the G-Max to take a hit, then it'll get off a Max Airstream, OHKO and outspeed and sweep your whole team. If you do manage to beat that then they get super salty and almost always disconnect in my experience laugh.gif They're as boring as facing a stall team to me.

Agreed about Urshifu too, annoys me more because it's not even that good, there's so many easy counters to it in either form. I beat the Dark one with my stupid physical Hatterene I made out of sheer dumb curiosity today rotf.gif

Thought I'd finished the expansion but found that little side bit with Hop today so that killed a whole 30 mins haha.

I wish they had actually added a bit more story with Hop, at least like battle him again with a team of new DLC Pokemon or something, it was just like "lol oh btw I'm here too xx"

Rumours suggest the next DLC is a bit more meaty with the story so fingers crossed for that!

Has anyone else seen the tactic of using Passimian with Azumarill in doubles? The latter using Misty Explosion with the former Dynamixing, inheriting Huge Power and activating a Weakness Policy is so unbelivably broken but I love it laugh.gif

Omg it's so fun when you just f*** a Cinderace because you KNOW they were banking on some bullshit sweep and there is nothing better than putting a stop to that laugh.gif

All the gym leaders just randomly appear, they could have let you battle them at least laugh.gif

Howling at me just sweeping a legendary plus Cinderace team with my Chlorophyll Venusaur, it's so so satisfying when someone thinks merely having legendaries is a given win

That is incredible laugh.gif this is the thing, Cinderace is hard to counter... with the generic OU options. Think outside the box and the idiots using them get so shocked when they come crumbling down, was actually disappointed that my Libero Runerigus didn't attract a salty reaction!

Definitely! The best counter I've found that I use often is Cinccino with Rock Blast and Skill Link, my own Cinderace has higher speed but only by 188 to 183 so if they run Adamant instead of Jolly or don't have 31IVs, I outspeed then Rock Blast is usually an OHKO so I'm good, even if it uses priority Sucker Punch that isn't an OHKO as frail as Cinccino is. I'm scum and use Kings Rock btu it's guaranteed OHKO with Choice Band, I just like the flinch chance if it's not quite enough on other Pokemon laugh.gif Choice Band Crawdaunt with Adaptability and Aqua Jet also works actually. It's so much more satisfying when it's a Pokemon they won't expect, you could easily bring out Choice Scarf Dracovish but I live for the salt.
