: TRUE DAMAGE or not????
It's multiplicative, applying the strongest % first afaik. So in your first example: Last Whisper's 45% is applied first, reducing 100 by 45% to 55. Then either Judgement or Black Cleaver, reducing 55 by 30% to 38.5. Then the other, reducing 38.5 by 30% to 26.95. Which is a total of 100 - 26.95 = 73.05% armour penetration. In your second example: Yasuo's bullshit is applied first, reducing 100 by 50% to 50. Then Last Whisper, reducing 50 by 45% to 27.5. Then whatever mastery nonsense, reducing 27.5 by 7% to 25.575. For a total of 100 - 25.575 = 74.425% armour penetration. But knowing Riot, they've probably got some convoluted senseless, obfuscated soft caps that make a mess of any reasonable understanding of actual damage your opponent will take.

Lol I'm not really upset about it, it's a really funny predicament to be in tbh. If I ever become obsessive to the point of "wow not being with this person is legitimately damaging" I've got enough balls to front up and speak to him about it. So long as he's in a relationship, regardless of how frail and flimsy it is (and believe it, it is real frail), I'm not going to interject.

Finished my first draft of book 2, book 1 is still in a state of NEED MORE EDIT and I'm not really looking for publishing at this moment. I've started my honours project for uni, and that's taking up so much of my time it's a little difficult to get in a writey mood. I think I'd be cool with easing off on writing for this year because honours is super important and it'd suck to have to miss out on things if I happen to be picked up by publishers and what not.

That would be a great start. Oh, I'm not vegetarian or vegan and highly doubt I ever will be, I just dislike that society has an ethical blindspot when it comes to certain things, be it cows or drinking. I was raised to not waste food, so food I shall not waste. If I was presented with kangaroo, I'd probably try it. I've had camel before which is actually pretty good, it just felt weird to eat because camels aren't in the edible animal bin. Also hi SEKAI welcome back bby ily <3
: What do you AUs think of roo meat?
I haven't tried it before, but it could become a staple in our diets. Cattle farming isn't particularly environmentally friendly and ethical procedures for farming roos, as well as a cultural shift to make it wider spread could be a decade or two away. I have an aversion to it because I don't really want to eat other animals (yes I'm perfectly aware of my mental biases and ignorance in regard to cows, sheep and chickens, but I'm now at an age where I don't particularly want to lump other animals in that bin).

If you&#x27;re born a gender, how is it a social construct? People are born a certain sex, which can sometimes be nonsynonymous with their gender. Transexuals identify with characteristics that are applied to the opposite sex and have a difficult time feeling comfortable being associated with the gender they don't identify with.
: If gender is a social construct...
Because they have a structural difference in their brains compared to cis males and females. https://www.newscientist.com/article/dn20032-transsexual-differences-caught-on-brain-scan/

Also good clerics that had high usage rates in high ladder OU and VGC matches through gen 4-5 were blissey (later eviolite chansey), clefable, jirachi, mew, sylveon, espeon, togekiss and celebi. I will admit I don't know much about the Ubers meta but since high elo matches in other ladders generally involve alot of tempo play and cores and flexibility. I'm not sure if mega salamence is broken or not but I find it hard to believe that a proper ubers team could be swept by a burnt salamance that hasn't gotten like 3 dragon dances off unless burn doesn't drop attack anymore.

I remember all of those mons being used but like <5% of the time they ran cleric sets. There was just something better to take for most games on ladder, in organised play including VGC it makes more sense but VGC is lame and boring (like OU laddering after a generation's gone stagnant and everyone just runs the last team Pokeaim used in a video (but I love Joey all the same, it's not his fault people are sheep)). Jirachi and Togekiss were almost exclusively flinch haxing sets from para to choice. Mew and Celebi were either set up sweepers, wallers or baton passers (and the occasional life orb set). Cleric Espeon????????????????????????? People ran dual screens, set up sweepers/passers and choice sets with the occasional Wish passer. Clefable... eh. Mostly bulky calm mind or tank sets. Occasionally supporty.

: this isn't pokemon showdown but I'm game, I used to be pretty decent during gen 4-5. You made a beginners mistake of burning him though. Status is good but against a typical fast offensive 'overkill' sweeper a thunderwave would have been far move effective. Firstly burn isn't all that reliable to get off with the most reliable version being the will-o-wisp which has a subpar 85% acc and whilst it can reduce his damage output, you'd be much better off if you forced him to switch with the thunderwave+coverage threat tempo play. A burn doesn't necessarily force him out and on tankier bruiser sets he could simply try to attrition out your resistance tank and then switch to a cleric to remove the status and maintain a lead. Thrash over double edge is a questionable option on mega salamance since the option for you to switch in a tyranitar, metagross, zapdos or heatran and then setup entry traps or setup themselves with their own boosting moves could lose them the game. A team of all counter and tanks is not exactly a viable teamcomp since you lack threat and allows the opponent to switch and play at their own pace without the threat of your own wincondition. If you do go for attrition tank based teams then it is quite necessary to have phasers (entry hazards and ways to force switch that can wear down teams and force poor tempo plays even when the enemy has a cleric or sustain walls), status inflicters (typically toxic for tanks and t-wave for sweepers) and defensive attrition sweepers (typically using calm mind+healing move with either a burn or high base def or maybe both, the reason mega-slowbro was so strong) since otherwise playing around your strengths will be quite simple as you will lack counterplay and wincondition options. You also need to work on coverage and role cores if you got wrecked by a pokemon spamming a single high power typing. Playing pure tank and counter meta teams in pokemon is alot more complicated than you might think and I find it's arguably the team design that must be thought out the most when trying to play at a high level. Also having a team of pure counters and tanks is no excuse to have no considered your win condition, be that classic attrition using entry hazards and toxic (alot less reliable given the rise in the use of clerics upon entry to gen 5) or threat nullification into tanky setup sweepers. Overall balanced teams are a better option and are seen more on the modern competitive scene but tank/counter teams are still viable but they require alot more gameknowledge and experience and if you're getting wrecked by a thrash salamance, then you might want to revisit your options.
