Deal with it.
I don't care for Mega Rayquaza.
>>
They weren't.
>>
>>24947169
Let's make Rayquaza actually look like the respectable fearsome god of balance he's supposed to be?

Fuck off. Mega Rayquaza is a great expansion on an otherwise dull Legendary.
>>
>implying GF gives a shit about the meta

They just make stuff that little kids think would be cool. Literally.

>Here's what we think of your competitive scene, morons!
The main series games are first and foremost a JRPG where the stated goal is collecting things. Competition must exist because it's a huge part of the setting, but not everything can or should be balanced, especially with 700+ species to choose from. Some are strong to justify their role in the story, and some are weak to make early-game battles more forgiving.
Imagine a Final Fantasy game where every monster from every game in the franchise was playable. Some of them would be game-breaking by design, even at equalized level.

>>24947836

competitive multiplayer is the only edge it has over other JRPGs. they care about the competitive scene, and clearly make an effort to balance most things for ranked. mega ray doesn't matter because he's not usable in ranked.

It wasn't made with competitive gameplay in mind. It was meant to be a strong ass legendary mon.
>>
>>24947169
Honestly its pretty balanced as a Mega, its just that it can hold a fucking item too.
>>
The gold tassel things and the mandible jaws are kinda neat. That eyeliner stuff looks a bit silly, though. They coulda done a better job, but it's not too awful. They could have covered it in spikes. That wouldn't look too good at all.
>>
Friendly reminder that MegaFug is broken in Singles but Doubles has to deal with Primal Groudon which will always fall under the radar thanks to MegaFug's bullshit no-Megastone gimmick.

At least Smogon banned MegaFug.
>>
Most mons after gen2 suck.

This looks more like a yugioh monster than a pokemon.
>>
>>24947246
this.

GF more than likely sat at the table and was told to make the most badass thing they could think of, rather than think about his role in the Smogon metagame and give it a wide list of checks and counters and damagecalcs to back up said checks/counters.
>>
>>24947933
Here's your reply.
>>
>>24947933
Gen 2's mons are the worst in the franchise though
>>
>>24947915
Singles has to deal with Primal Groudon too. There's no 1v1 counter to it. It's either going to do a huge chunk to anything you bring in or just actually kill you.
>>
>>24948032
At least it's not batshit insane unlike MegaFug.
>>
>>24947169
Why would they care about balancing something not being able to be used in any official meta? It would be great if they kept making legendaries like that, it's cool and it sells.
>>

You are born post 1995 so your opinion means nothing to me.

They wanted to one up smogonfags and their ban list.
>>
>>24947169
Honestly, I prefer this treatment to what the Mega Mewtwos got.
>>
>>24948273
Never. Those dumbasses insist on leaving as many things in Ubers as possible that don't outright break the meta in half like M-Ray, even when they make the tier garbage.
>>
>>24947933

plenty of yugioh monsters could pass as pokemon if they were drawn sugi style
>>
>>24947169
GF balances with their main aim on doubles, in a doubles format mega Rayquaza is pretty balanced, while it can utterly destroy 1 pokemon, it will get focussed down.

The only way i use mega Rayquaza in doubles is with skill swap contrary. Free defences & special attack for everyone (Contrary Dragon ascent & contrary draco meteor) + something with heal pulse
>>
>>24947169
Mega Fug is the best fanmade Digimon out there.

>>24948124

It is though.

Can't you just run follow me support and get at least 2? Jollyband Dragon Ascent can 3hko 252 HP and Defense with +Def natured Heatran and Landorus-T(Intimidate calced for Lando) and 2hko's max defense P-Groudon.

Their designs are worse than their stats.
Gen 2 is home to such winning designs as Corsola, Snubbull, Unown, Stantler and Meganium. A less merciful company would have retconned that garbage already.
>>
>>24949165
Ubers is not a tier.
>>
>>24949762
It is now thanks to fug you asshole
>>
>>24949762
End this meme.

Ubers is full of broken digimon, and many wreck you even with a hard check / soft counter.

But so is OU nowadays.

Deal with it or play 386.
>>
>>24948124
Primals are still utter horseshit to deal with, being worse than fucking Fug doesn't mean anything.
>>
>>24948032
Kyurem White outspeeds and oneshots primal don. Get gudder shitters.

I think it's just a coincidence. Mons are less broken when you have double targetting and Protect.

No, I'm pretty sure they balance for doubles.

VGC is literally 100% doubles. It's the the official format.

As a 6v6 singles fag, that makes me really fucking butthurt. Wish they'd introduce random online, that'd placate me. Instead we get 3v3 garbage.
