Yeah, I'd say so. Platinum changes really screwed up the metagame. Basically you'll always be seeing a BP Scizor or Outraging Mence on EVERY team you see. UU/BL has a lot more variation, which = a lot more entertainment value imo.
Well to tell you the truth, the UU-BL merger kinda spiced things up over in S&M (strategies and movesets). Before that, it was kinda dead. But yeah, it seems to be picking up a bit more. The Shoddy Lounge isn't doing too well though, since we don't have a lot of people who use it a lot. D:
