Are you trying to build a Pokemon team but are unsure about what your team's weaknesses are?

No, this is a threat to talk about wether or not pokemon the balance team has balanced are actually balanced or unbalanced. Because we need feedback like this. It helps us a lot.
But there are lots of threads you can ask for help building a team in, lawrencecatherine. You can even ask in one of the guilds and I'm sure they will help. Good luck. :)

Glaceon. Speak of it. People keeps saying it's unbalanced and hits way too hard, so figured someone should mention it. I'm biased because ice mono, so I don't think it is, but... For the greater good.

We haven't balance Tyrantrum yet. But you are more then welcome to discuss why you think it should be nerfed.

Anyone else have anything to say about glaceon? Now is the time to speak up if you thing it needs a nerf. The balance team wants the communities input in these things. Sometimes we may overlook something.

If anything, I'd just nerf its health or defense. It's good, but I've seen Humen chanseyed over so many times because it misses one head smash. It's sort of gimmicky, like any head smash user.

I have some input on Glaceon. It is balanced. I may have raged before (since it does hit my team hard) But after trying it out myself in regular servers, the team actually made it a niche poke for ice teams or any team in general. It is one of a small portion of hard hitting ice types, and should stay as it. It has a bunch of counters as well, and you just have to known when it is coming, or have a nice special wall on your team, a poke with good resistance,a poke that can hit it hard with priority, or a faster poke that can hit it even harder.

On Tyrantrum, since it's still in the testing phase, I don't really have anything to say except to swap out rock head for a different ability since it basically outclasses Rhampardos in the Scarfed Rock poke category.

Tyrantrum does not outclass rampardos. Rampardos still has higher attack and higher speed with two other great abilities. If anything, rampardos outclasses tyrantrum.

tyrantrum has to run as jolly to run a good choice scarf set, other wise you will be outspeed by other pokes. Leaving it with only 341 attack.
while rampardos on the other hand is still faster then tyrantrum with an adamant nature and has a massive 438 attack. Almost 100 more attack then tyrantrum while having the choice of 1 of 3 amazing abilities, mold breaker, rock head or sheer force.

I'm surprised I haven't seen this set yet. It is the most powerful set I have seen since darmanitan. 438 attack + stab + sheer force + life orb on rock slide = holy sh!t

Rampardos (F) @ Life Orb
Trait: Sheer Force
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Rock Polish
- Rock Slide
- ThunderPunch
- Fire Punch

Rock slide doesnt hit quite as hard as headsmash with the choice scarf set, but you have freedom to switch moves and your coverage moves hit way harder.

tyrantrum is not that powerful. Special hits wreck it and it is 4x weak to the very commen ice move.

Like I said I think volcarona should be compensated for losing 30 spa.att. It was not over powered to begin with!

Tyrantrum is rock/dragon. It's only 2x weak to ice.

Kangaskhanite has been officially banned by the OU Tiering Council. A quick run-down of the reasoning, with more information in the linked thread, is as follows:

1. Mega Kangaskhan, with an effective 213 base attack thanks to Parental Bond, is too powerful for even the bulkiest of OU physical walls. Damage calculations are listed in the thread.

2. Mega Kangaskhan is nearly impossible to revenge kill outside of fast and powerful Fighting-types. Other Pokemon who outspeed are either OHKOed by a +2 Sucker Punch or too weak to break through its 105/100/100 defenses.

3. Mega Kangaskhan severely limits teambuilding by forcing teams to run multiple obscure counters and checks.

You know what that means. IT's getting the nerf bat on PU.
