Word. Standard Gardyacerola-orion posted...
Gardevoir surviving Bullet Punch isn't uncommon in VGC as they generally all run bulky EV spreads. One of the many reasons why Bullet Punch is not a good move on Lucario. I would be more surprised if it did OHKO.


Word. Standard Bulk Gardy is typically spec'd to live Banded Brave Birds, and Bullet punch does around 85% IIRC with that build. Lives non-LO scizor BP's too. To live an LO one you need hella investment and pos nature, IMO not worth it.

That was beautiful, man.

What makes it even better was the VGC Tiers thread on Smogon that has Pachi at the lowest (non-Meowstic) tier. When people tried to argue that it should be higher because it actually did well in sims, they were shot down because a redirector 'Risu was "too gimmicky".

Maybe they forgot to compute the Korean factor.


That still means it's something they rate as viable with proper support doesn't it

IDK how their viability tiering works but AFAIK if they mention it at all that means they think it's workable

And again, I don't really see why people are trying to call out Smogon when absolutely everyone besides Se Jun himself was surprised by the Pachirisu

Finally got back to my hotel. I had a ton of fun today. It's great to see Sejun finally take home a victory even if it did mean another friend of mine had to lose. I look forward to doing this again next year.

No amount of rallying would let me beat raytan7585.

I didn't qualify for the main tournament but in the last chance qualifier I used the R Justice's Rain Beatdown team. So my Pokemon were Politoed, Ludicolo, Kangaskhan, Hydreigon, Talonflame and Aegislash.
