    The first time I get a low seed, and of course it's the morning before a long work day XD Nidoqueen @DisobeyedCargo

  3. So the Water Gym's puzzle is a terrace garden of ponds that connect to an underwater abstract art maze with minimal directional indicators, and the whole thing requires all three Water HMs to navigate. cool

    First off, @Nym NYYYYYYYYYYMMMMMMMMMMM Draft salt aside, I'll take Hawlucha and Alakazam (both). @Michelaar you're up again
  8. Chapter 3 of Mystery/New Mystery. Hi, Dracoknights with cryptic or otherwise tricky AI. Hi, long roundabout path around a lake. Hi, recruitable enemy who will harass you (and potentially kill himself) if you try to take a shortcut. And hi, houses that are consistently one tile beyond Marth's max movement range.

    People please make it a habit to ping the next person in line after you pick. Like this: @Ether Anyway, Tapu Lele

    A Protean ban could be handled in two ways: either Greninja and Ash-Greninja can be counted as separate Pokemon or Protean Greninja gets complex banned. If it's the latter then an argument can be made to allow Blaze Blaziken and Sand Force Landorus-I, because it's Speed Boost and Sheer Force respectively that break them to begin with. Compatibility issues could always be solved by playing matches in Ubers or a custom Showdown! server.

    Yeah, I am. I have some other thoughts I'd like to share: Agreed on the decision to ban Greninja. Besides Protean builds there's also Battle Bond which adds another element of unpredictability. What's your stance on Mega Evolutions? Smogon tiers Megas separately and most drafts do as well, with the typical rule being Mega must hold its stone and the non-Mega cannot hold its stone. Some leagues also do things like limit you to one per team or require you to Mega Evolve immediately. Team size. 20 Pokemon per team is an awful lot, let alone 25. Most leagues generally allow 10-12 Pokemon per team and don't go above 15; I'd suggest three per tier instead of four or five. Having more Pokemon means more options, while having less means the draft is shorter, lower tier Pokemon will see more use and counterteaming becomes more effective.

    In. Gonna suggest we consider banning Tapu Lele because auto-Psychic Terrain is ridiculously strong. WRT suspected Pokemon I don't think we should ban them, rather choose where they belong before the draft starts and stick with it. Tiers are constantly shifting and with the team sizes we get one or two Pokemon changing tiers isn't going to be that game-breaking. Also what's the policy on Z-moves? They're an incredibly powerful tool and many draft leagues limit the number of Pokemon per team that can use Z-moves, and certain moves (omniboosts for example) are straight up banned.
  14. You gave a passing mention to Berkut and Rinea, but what about my home-boy Brigand Boss? Jokes aside I wouldn't consider CYL an accurate popularity poll, as some characters are heavily skewed by the game. Kliff is no doubt the best example due to not being in the game when all his villager pals are, but then there's unit viability dragging down other characters or in the Whitewings' case other iterations taking votes away.
  15. How is using only 3 units in Lyn's Story "optimal"?

    Enemies are perpetually Level 1 and many of them have negative bases. Once a unit gets going, it stays going; and the mode's gameplay is otherwise not very interesting so you may as well barge through the whole thing ASAP.
