Hey PK Gaming. Sorry to bother you, but there's a guy named Icecream demanding Amoonguss be moved down to C-Rank on the OU Viability thread. Thing is, he's being incredibly stubborn and ignorant about it. Check it out for yourself to get an idea.
I was wondering if maybe you could say your thoughts on Amoonguss in the thread to end this? People, including myself, are going a bit overboard trying to reason with this guy.
Ahh... So what you're saying is that if Drizzle didn't exist, Hydreigon would be an excellent choice for handling what would be the new dominant weathers, while as of now it's just "good" against the most common weather but doesn't "obliterate" it.
Looks like most of us misinterpreted that a little...
That's not the reason why I think Hydreigon is A-tier in a Drizzle-less metagame. Hydreigon is A-tier in that hypothetical metagame because of how it fares against sand. Hydreigon obliterates Sand teams, and it's really good against Sun teams too.
Ok then... It's just that after your comment people made posts about how Hydreigon fares against Rain; Hydreigon is more than capable of taking on common Rain threats like Tentacruel and Jirachi, and Fire Blast still hits Ferrothorn extremely hard.
Well, whatever. It's your decision. Do whatever you think is best. : )
While Hydreigon is a fantastic Pokemon, and super underrate by everyone, I just don't think it's A-tier material in the current metagame. It's like a hair width away from being A-tier (The slow speed & the Fighting-type weak)That's the gist of it, maybe if Drizzle got banned it could way go up.
Hi! Sorry to bother you about this, but I was wondering why when you updated the OU Viability thread, you made no mention of Hydreigon? There was a lot of debate going on about it's placement, and I think it would be nice to at least know your current thoughts on it.
