    Wolves should be s and the AVERAGE dog should be f. They wouldn't stand a chance finding they're own food and rely completely on humans

    Coyotes are way underrated in a human dominated meta. Dogs and cats may be successful through mutual partnership, but coyotes have been able to take advantage of the environmental changes brought about by humans. Coyote range has greatly expended while the population of wolves and painted dogs have plumetted.

      @colleen because selecting for an obvious physical trait also selects for 'hidden' behavioural traits linked on the dna chain

    S Tier - "highly sophisticated social structure is actually built around propping up the weaker members, rather than following the move to the highest ranking member." It's official... love wins.

    Some studies suggest that the African Cape Hunting Dog is the most successful predator in all of nature, succeeding something like 2 out of every 3 attempts. While you detailed the wolf's hunting methodology in good detail, you didn't mention much of the African Cape Hunting Dog's. And it is really quite fascinating.
    Prey selection is crucial to all predators, and all dogs are pretty good at selecting good prey. By selecting injured, really young, or really old animals and intentionally separating them from their herds, the dogs increase their chances of success dramatically. Once suitable prey has been separated from its herd, the pack will often break up into two groups. The pack instinctively understands that it is a shorter distance across a circle than around it. So one group will head straight across the circle while the other group chases the animal around the circle. Once the first group makes it to the other side of the circle, the other group, now rested and waiting, will take over chasing the animal, while the first group jogs back across the circle and rests. The second group resumes chasing the animal around the circle. This process repeats, with one half of the pack cutting across the circle and resting, so that there is always fresh dogs chasing the animal around in a circle. The prey, of course, gets no rest, and is ran until it is simply exhausted and can go no further. At this point, the dogs will anchor its hindquarters and wrestle the animal to the ground as they wait for the other half of the pack to find them. Once the entire pack has descended on the animal, they begin feasting, often while their prey is still alive. They eat as much as they can as quickly as they can, to avoid having their hard earned calories stolen from them by bigger and stronger predators, like lions and hyenas. Cape Hunting Dogs are so successful that other predators know to watch and follow them in order to get in on the action.

    At 6:39 it is said that charge is also an intimation move which it definitely could be, bulls, buffaloes, and large deer could give a devastating or even game ending blow using the move charge. But if you aren't strong enough to do a strong enough charge attack you should use the move "mock charge" which can intimidate players by tricking them into thinking that you have a strong charge attack. But if they have high resolve then your best option is to run as fast as you can.

    There was one coyote main who tried to use an extreme intelligence-buff strategy and even unlocked Advanced Tool Use, but some troll who played a roadrunner kept getting him killed. I suspect he was hacking the game’s physics engine too.

    You're forgetting a major advantage these builds have over almost all other predator builds is their stamina is way higher. A wolf build can track an animal for hundreds of miles and weeks on end, where as most cats give up after like, 40-50 yards after they get winded. That's legitimately why they are one of the most successful predators the world has ever seen.
