  1. The Unofficial Guide to Alolan-Dugtrioing This will be a guide on how Alolan Dugtrio is used in pvp and how you can use it in your team to gain the upperhand, since everyone wants strong Pokemon in their team, so why not use the best? Disclaimer: I do not take responsibility for any rating lost due to the advice/teachings from this guide, only real chads should use Alolan-Dugtrio, if you are randy just go use ribombee or something lole. Why should you listen to me given I am just a randy? Well I hit top 500 on Gen 8 Nat Dex AG with this Pokemon as my suicide lead in all games on 2 different accounts. For starters, let us take a look at the tier that Alolan Dugtrio is in according to Smogon. As you can see it is in OU compared to randydrill (which it is often compared to by top tier pvpers like Nab, Pancake and Chiice) that constantly flip-flops between OU and UU. UU more like randyU Let us begin. Why is Alolan-Dugtrio viable in pvp despite it almost never being seen? If we look at its amazing stats...oops there seems to be a visual bug There we go! If we look at it's amazing stats it clearly outclasses Excadrill, being able to rival pokemon such as Gengar and Mega-Diancie in speed. And jokes aside, it having access to 100 base attack tied with 110 base speed is no joke with its access to STAB earthquake and iron head, being able to take out Pokemon that usually stop Excadrill from effectively doing its job, an example that immediately comes to mind being Mega Diancie. So what other factors make it a good suicide lead? Its unique ability in Glorious Blonde Mane (which let's be honest is its only viable ability) paired together with its access to memento is the greatest gift you can give a Pokemon that really wants free set-up turns. Some examples are Volcarona and Mega-Gyarados having access to a free turn using Quiver Dance or Dragon Dance or Whatever Dance can allow them to 1v6 the opponent team in the right conditions. Being able to reduce the opposing Pokemon's speed when hit with a contact move is crazy value. So how should I use it? Alolan Dugtrio is only viable with one nature which is Jolly, as it being at max speed allows it to rival Pokemon it can usually OHKO with its stab moves. It is a suicide lead so obviously it will want to wear the holy sash of focus. Some of the moves I run on it are Earthquake, Iron head, Toxic, Stealth Rock, Memento and sometimes Rock Slide/Tomb although this is less common. Charizard Y is a popular lead against it being able to resist Iron Head and being immune to Earthquake so a Rock Move is always welcome to take out the unexpecting Mega. A niche move on a niche Pokemon could be Thief, after losing Focus Sash stealing the opposing Pokemon's item could be incredibly useful. You might also want to consider Sucker Punch or Pursuit should your team require these moves. So...yeah! Go wild. Here is a replay of Alolan-Dugtrio in action, ignoring the fact that it was in Gen 8 and Anything Goes. (https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8nationaldexag-1192789682) And there you have it, a short and simple guide to using Alolan-Dugtrio, the glorious Pokemon. I hope this guide was useful to you, else you could just listen to Joro which is probably more sound advice. Thanks for reading my (chad Smeargle user) guide. 20 Million Subs and Ill make part 2. o/

    How to Smeargle

    The Unofficial Guide to Smeargling This will be a guide on how Smeargle is used in pvp and how you can use it in your team to gain the upperhand, since everyone wants strong Pokemon in their team, so why not use the best? Disclaimer: I do not take responsibility for any rating lost due to the advice/teachings from this guide, only real chads should use Smeargle, if you are randy just go use ribombee or something lole. Firstly, we shall take a look at @Jorogumo's op PRO PvP Viability Rankings (https://pokemonrevolution.net/forum/topic/163742-pro-pvp-viability-rankings-updated/) It seems Joro's addition of Smeargle in the S-tier bugged out sadly, but it is fine. He does not know the secrets we do Jokes aside, let us begin. Why is Smeargle viable in pvp despite its LC-tier stats? If we look pass it's pathetic stats you will see that Smeargle can learn any (YES ANY!) move. With the exception of Chatter. (Shoutout to @Valory for the useless information and forcing me to change this part) And it can fit in any team bar stall because it dies to the zubats in mt.moon using absorb. (Big thank you again to @Valory for more useless information and forcing me to change this line too). How can it fit in any team you might ask? Let us look at the kind of team it is most commonly used in, Hyper Offensive. Hyper Offensive usually consists of 1-2 Suicide leads and filled to the brim with extremely offensive Pokemon (Well, duh the name says it all) So why should we use Smeargle over randy Pokemon like Excadrill (cringe)? As I said before it has the ability to learn any move. Therefore, it is able to counter most common leads and set up its own hazards/cripple enemy Pokemon. Another reason is it's ability, Walmart Inner Focus, to avoid confusion which may come in handy since confusion really messes with suicide leads that depend on their focus sashes. Here are some of the sets (but not all) I use on Smeargle (https://pokepast.es/6b90ee854d8f7c47) being able to glare offensive pokemon to cripple them, counter or mirror coat to take out Pokemon with 1 move and set up stealth rocks/webs/any other hazards you might prefer is very valuable for Hyper Offense especially when all of these happen on the first Pokemon. What are the viable natures for a chad Pokemon such as Smeargle? Well, anything with +speed really, but there are other factors to keep in mind. For example, if you are running counter/mirror coat you want to go hasty/naive respectively, so as to take additional damage from u-turn/volt switch, dealing more damage to the Pokemon switching in. So why else would Smeargle be chad? Smeargle clearly can run alot of value moves as I have mentioned above, but what about instead of giving yourself value with Smeargle, you devalue the opponent's team? With the ability to run 4 moves that can take out 1 or more Pokemon instantly, can quite literally destroy the foundation of the enemy's team/plans. For example, taking out Chansey in a Skarmory/Chansey defensive core or instantly taking out the opponent's biggest threat to your team. Making Pokemon a 5v5 game (Pokemon Unite xd) where the opponent has to play in your terms is deathly. Here is a replay of me vs c0mp in the Ascension-New Leaf tour match, I mean don't watch the end because...obviously I won hehe...c0mp is too good men (https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen7ou-1450487345) And there you have it, a short and simple guide to using Smeargle, the chad Pokemon. In line with it being an artist, you have to be creative when playing around with Smeargle. I hope this guide was useful to you, else you could just listen to Joro which is probably more sound advice. Thanks for reading my (chad Smeargle user) guide. 20 Million Subs and Ill make part 2. o/
  5. You probably just defogged on him and didnt notice
  6. The "begging in Vermi" is more a meme nowadays than it is a problem, the begging has definitely died down alot and the one or two we see are just new players who do not know what they should do. Reporting them and getting them punished is not gonna help the longevity of the game
