For those of you who didnt see, tier list recently got updated.

Following are now OU;

(suck)


Following are now UU;



Discuss ?
Alakazam, Chansey and Mamoswine deserve their OU places.

Dugtrio, I've never really used, Donphan isn't that good in OU, and are people trying to use Jolteon as a pseudo-Thundurus of sorts? :x

Forgot about Tornadus, yah OU good etc

SWAMPERT IN UU OMG. ;-; i loved using him. Zong gone is kinda good since I won't see his as much. But then again I liked using him.

To be honest, I don't really think Dugtrio deserves OU status because once it kills something, Scizor can just come in and kill it with Bullet Punch or Pursuit.

I think that some of Smogon's decisions this time round were shocking. Sigilyph in RU? Bye bye Cresselia. Also, Swampert shouldn't be too hard to deal with, but I'm concerned about Bronzong.

I guess the strategy would be to have a Pokemon to take out Scizor and other priority users and Jolteon first AND THEN send in Dugtrio. And of course spinners, etc, etc. Too much hassle for me but hey if some people like that complicated stuff needing two Pokemon to be able to use just that one properly, then good for them.

Ah, didn't think about that. But I agree--Dugtrio is a Pokemon that needs a lot of support to use well.

See how silly that is i can make that argument for anything lol. Plus if Dug has already killed something hasn't it done its job ?

Also Dug is ou most likely because of sun teams, it essentially is a free Tyranitar kill and it provides a little team support for sun, being able to set up SR. (New standard set which is; Sub or SR, Reversal, EQ, Stone Edge @ Sash). Its a death sentence to Blissey, Heatran and Tyranitar, two major foes to sun.

It's not a decision lol. Tiers are based on usage; Sigilyph wasn't used in enough in UU so it moved down a tier.

Well the decisions are based off the usage stats (and judged according to the cutoff), and was Siglyiph in RU is still a message for Cresselia to leave.

It's not really a decision; Smogon just uses an arbitrary cutoff to determine which Pokemon fall into the usage bracket for a certain tier. The usage statistics each month dictate the tier shifts that happen every three months. The only 'decision' being made is the process used to carry this out, Smogon's tiering leaders only dictate which Pokemon belongs in a certain tier by banning them; everything else is a result of usage on Pokemon Online's ladder for a given tier.

Understood, Karpman. I still have a lot to learn!

But I still think that Siglyiph is still going to be a pain in RU.

I blame the elf for the existence of this post. Thus, I have to say that Sub-Roost Nite is still broken and needs to be Uber, for his power is maximum.

How is everyone?

lol one of the Android users just told me that our server appears first on the list of them, no wonder we get so many random Android users.

And I also realised that because it's called "PokeCommunity" and the other names don't really have Pokemon in the title other than PO's actual server it's likely they also chose this because they think it's the community of PO. :x Now it all makes sense!

If somebody else discovered this before me I'm going to be very sad.

First Gen battling is amusing, I just had a Challenge Cup with Doronjo. About 60 turns of stalling xD

I also did CC with Vapor and it was kinda fun, but not having the boosting etc attacks of the current generation makes me very sad. :(

Edit: I also made a gen one team and then faced Doronjo with it and I conclude I suck :) Not as sucky as I thought I'd be though!

No one wants to do a Pokemon Hunger Games?

If you haven't read about it, go here.

Through browsing the forums, I found that this idea was "attempted" before in a similar format by Karpman. You can read about that here.

In any case, I just wanted to know what everyone else thought of the idea.

EDIT: In order to make the idea more like the Hunger Games, instead of having a bracket, competitors choose their own opponents. No player can deny a battle, either. This is to further enhance the survivalist feel, as well as more incentive to team up, if you feel you're weaker than the competition.

I'd do it but I'm not sure how many of those in my clan actively battle and/or would want to do it, lol. Idea seems nice though :3
