Stage 3 Voting Predictions

Posted September 12th, 2009 at 2:44 PM by Anti

I figured I'd have some fun and predict the Stage 3 voting results. You can post some too if you'd like. I'll probably be wrong on about all of these, but I thought I'd have some fun so why not?

Shaymin-S - Uber

I think this will be voted Uber, actually. I think people are afraid of hax and afraid of Skymin's power and Speed. I actually don't blame them--it's a pretty effective Pokemon. I just wish "hax" wouldn't be such a deciding factor, but I suppose that's unavoidable in this case. I think OU is a very big possibility, but a lot of people fear this, so I'll say Uber.

Garchomp - Uber

No way people are voting Garchomp back down. I would be stunned if it became OU again. We all remember the Sand Veil hax complaints and the "WOMG YACHECHOMP IT HAS NO COUNTERS THEREFORE IT IS THE BEST POKEMON THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN" mentality that bothered me so much, lol. If it's voted OU, people must have short memories or something. Of course, I think Garchomp should be OU since it was never really hard to contain (guaranteed kill was such a lie) unless it was running a Choice Band set. I still don't think there is much of a chance that this is voted OU.

Latios - Uber

The extra power over Latias makes a considerable difference, so I have my doubts that people will vote this OU. Yeah, some people are in denial about the crazy power of choice Specs, Calm Mind, Dual Screen + Memento support, or even Choice Scarf Latios. Latias sure isn't broken, but it's one of the best Pokemon in OU, so I don't know why Latias on steroids should be allowed. Besides, Dragon centralization to the extreme doesn't sound like fun to me...or anyone else, I would hope. People like to deny the offensive characteristic on this thing because very centralized counters like RestTalk Registeel (ROFL!) and spdefensive CB Scizor can beat it, so I think there is a chance that it will become OU. If that's the case, I'll enjoy abusing it.

Latias - OU

lol, everyone knows this isn't broken. I would bet my life on it being OU.

Manaphy - OU

This is harder because I've never played against a Manaphy and I haven't watched many battles with it. The vote was very close last time, but with other suspects overshadowing it, I think people will vote this to be OU...maybe. I'm very unsure about this and I think it could go either way. Still, Manaphy isn't as scary to many as Garchomp and Latios, so I wonder if that will have an impact. I hope not because I don't want something that is potentially too powerful to handle in OU!

lol I bet the results will be revealed by the time I finish this. But go ahead and post your own predictions if you want...or rip mine hahaha

    When D_A used his suspect rain dance team with Manaphy against me, it demolished everything, including Blissey >.<

    If it does come down, rain dance teams are going to be spammed like crazy.

    I don't know much about suspect but.. I do agree with Aura

    If Manaphy comes down into OU, these two things will happen:

    >A lot of Rain Dance Teams and
    >Thunder as oppose to thunderbolt D=

    But um how can you determine how a metagame that doesn't exist yet will be? That's just really bad theorymon, is it not?

    I guess you're right >:

    As a correction, Rain Dance and the Move Thunder will likely be used more often ^^
