Well, you know what "anti" means, right?

So if you're using Pokemon that are anti the metagame, what do you think that means?

Anti-meta would be the strategy that counters the current popular strategy.

I forgot about Aegislash too. Meta is really anti-fighting types which is sad.

These minor spelling errors were brought to you by an ipad having no real feedback to enable me to know when i mistype and my own laziness.

Anti-Meta is simply a strategy designed to counter the current Meta.

For example, a really good stall team could be anti-meta in a time where everything is hyper aggressive.

'Anti' means against.

It's not that clear cut. It could either mean:
- a team that is constructed with the opposite qualities desired in a top teir team;
- a team intended to counter/check the standard meta, or;
- a team where the pokemon are near opposites in concept (e.g. typing, appearance), ignoring stats and such.
