Some moves can be considered psuedo-phazers (which is ironic because 'phaze' is a contraction of psuedo-Haze, a move that removes boosts but without the switching out part) that don't necessarily force a switch, but deters the opponent from keeping the poke on the field. Such as Perish Song, Toxic (over a period of a couple turns), Yawn etc.

Because it forces switching, phazing works in synergy with entry hazards.

Of course the way to counter such moves as Whirlwind or Roar is to use Taunt. Dragon Tail cannot be taunted as it is a damaging move, but it has a heavily decreased priority instead.

I feel really dumb now because I've definitely heard that explanation before.

Part of the fun of playing OU on showdown is watching the meta shift.

Using bulky Garchomp and bulky reflect type Starmie as a core. 2 mons that were purely offensive not long ago and they work so well. Love it.

Yeah in my opinion the deadliest trait a pokemon can have overall is versatility.

I've been laddering on an alt and I was on 9-0. Got to this match and almost lost. Such a good game. Mienshao is scary.

So guys, what are your thoughts on Unbound Hoopa's design? Images of the design were only revealed unofficially 3 days ago.

I think you mean it was only revealed officially a few days ago. It was leaked waaayyy long ago.

Design wise I think it looks kinda silly. Even more so after the official reveal when they announced that it's like ~100 feet tall.

As for competitive use, I dunno. You've obviously put much more thought into it than I have. I got it in a few randbats (okay, like one or two) on Showdown and it didn't really stand out all that much to me.

I can see 252 Atk, 252 Spe + Choice Scarf (whichever one boosts speed) + Hyperspace Fury as being a great combo. It can't be blocked, and unless you're going up against a Fairy Type (I can't see anyone using a Bug or Fighting type defensively against it since defensive bug types are pretty rare) it'll have some great power. 100 Base Power + STAB plus it's absurdly high attack? That's a physical sweeper if I ever saw one.

I'm almost more intrigued to see it in the movie. 100+ feet tall? That's amazing

EDIT: just kidding, according to Bulbapedia it's about 21 feet tall in its unbound form, or about the size of a Gyarados

The Japanese translation is Dimensional Rush which sounds marginally cooler

To me it also looks like it could be a bad guy in a zelda game despite me never playing a zelda game
