Why does being a smogon poster make a difference exactly?


Because then It either means
1: It comes from a credible source that did the reasearch.
2: It came from Smogon, who have no clue what they're talking about because my favorite Pokemon Isn't Uber tier.

It depends on the reader mainly.


Smogon has a lot of users, me included. How does specifically being a smogon user make you right?

It's not a matter of saying "I'm from Smogon so I'm right.", It's about people actually testing out the new Mega Evolutions and weighing the benefits of those compared to other Items they could make use of.

This sounds like random prediction and theorymon rather than standard testing.

Ya know, like anybody could do.

>Mega Tyranitar isn't better than the Original
Smogon confirmed for not knowing what the hell they're talking about


assault vest >>>>> mega t-tar


Assault Vest T-Tar serves an ENTIRELY different purpose from Mega T-Tar.

...I suspect this gen may see the return of DD [Mega]T-Tar to major usage...

Who else remembers that set? I do.
It's horrifying.

Not sure why Mewtwo X is higher than Y, as I don't think his set moves sync well.

But, I'm not too bothered.

I think the first heading is "These Megas are better and different from their original versions," while the second heading is "These Megas are basically better and the same but with better stats."

Mega Scizor, for example, is basically the same as Scizor. If you're running Bulky SD, Mega does it better, but obviously CBScizor has to be regular.

How is Mega Houndoom worse? She's got higher speed and a high special attack - which just becomes overkill, in the Sun.

Viability of Megas according to a Smogon poster

Why are so many people claiming this is being presented as the community made, fully tested tier list?
