      Would you consider adding Feint to your movepool sub? I find it a bit flavorful :3

        Unfortunately, yeah, that's definitely true. I didn't even get how well it fit and why myself while I was reading through your submission initially

        In two subs though, maybe people will give it a second thought :D

      Hey, I don't want to clutter the Teambuilding Workshop thread with non-request/team posts so I'll respond here:
      Sun is inherently a janky and extremely matchup based playstyle and the decisions I made with the team were designed to provide as much pressure as possible given the constraints of using a sun team + chlorophyll sweeper. I'll just address the stuff you asked about in order:

        Excellent, thanks so much! Solid reasoning for all those points. I look forward to testing out the team!

      1. Venusaur is super weak so modest is absolutely necessary (Sludge only does like 60% to Latios for example which is Venu's best way of hitting it no way in hell can I fit Pursuit support on a sun team)
    4. dk
      dk
      2. Sun is up a ton because other weather is rare and Torkoal pivots into a surprising amount of things so I can afford to run Solar Beam (I'm also largely just copying what TDK ran on his sun HO); again, Venu is super weak so I feel like the extra power of Beam is necessary as well.

      3. I actually never had the opportunity to use EQ or Growth in my testing so IDK about that; honestly Dugtrio is pretty hard to trap a decent player's Tran with, so I'd just use EQ for the sake of RKing Gengar.
      4. The Def investment + nature hits a jump point so I just dumped some into SpA for a slightly harder-hitting Plume. You could easily just run max HP max Def but idk. Doesn't really matter.

        No hard feelings, it happens. It is better in general not to assume anyone's gender, though, online or IRL, till you've got their word on it. Have a good day!

        There have been at least two more Bloo alts spotted since then, at least alts that managed to get badged. There have probably been more.

        I contributed what was apparently good stuff to the CAP process during the movepool stage on Malaconda, and apparently, Birkal and the rest of the CAP mods thought it would be a good idea to encourage more contributions of that sort by giving me a ladybug for it (or something to that effect).

        There were a couple of other users who got their ladybugs for the same reason at the same time, but I don't remember who they were.

        Same to you! The bit about young dolphins sleeping in their mothers' slipstreams was really cool (and one of comparatively few things in that thread I didn't know before, actually).

        As for political education of other Smogoners, you've got a very effective approach - no-nonsense, but also accessible in that it seems easier to understand and personally connect to than a lot of left dialogue. Lots of what I see is either esoteric and filled with references nobody gets without extensive study, or overly simplistic and adjusts badly to argument (the one problem I have with many fellow anarchists).

        So I've got a lot of respect for that.

        I really enjoy educating people about interesting or important things, but I'm not very good at articulating fine details of my ideal society, so that tends to get dismissed. As such, most of my value as an educator comes from teaching people stuff about biology (I had a particularly entertaining chat with my chemistry professor about spiders just the other day).

        You might have seen me in the Studio. I occasionally lurk in other rooms, but I pretty much never go to the lobby anymore. I go by the name Dwarf Salticid on PS.
