Alright. I've decided to do a bit more with UU. Bringing back my DPP OU nostalgia shenanigans with Dusknoir being used, while also spicing it up with Meloetta. Might contemplate Abomasnow if I need a third team or get tired of using him in OU. I plan on using Scolipede, too, but on a different team unless I honestly need a Spikes lead (I tend to use Scolipede for Choice Band). I will probably send in a copy of the team(s) I make via Inbox if you wish to do much with it, while offering an edited version for later should any of my teammates not suit your style.
Still dismayed with Ambipom and Hitmontop, I take it?
Okay. Well, since there's no Metang problems in RU, I will wait until it gets closer to being balanced. Arguably, it's still got some trouble (I might try OU sand with Durant, for example) but with Nidoqueen gone the tier's infinitely better.
RU hasn't quite improved enough for me to be comfortable there. I considered running Leavanny in a Sun team for fun, but other than my usage of Abomasnow, Dusknoir, and Lickilicky in their featured Dark Horse teams (and Bisharp in two of those teams) I'm probably going to stick with teams off the beaten path. Because the beaten path is excessively wet and often needs Energy Ball Jellicent in order for me to counter it hard (as oppposed to soft counters, which I tend to pack by accident).
I'm still on Bisharp anyways. Also, I use Bisharp in Ubers to a level of success.
That said, yeah, OU is fairly full of imbalanced shit here. Infernape and Metagross are still at undeserved levels of usage, while things like Landorus and Abomasnow go underappreciated. That said, it is a good thing Tornadus-T got the boot, IMO. It was a nuisance to the tier so things can be a little more viable.
That said, RU is improving some, but I'm trying to help balance it out more. I'm going to try and promote Escavalier and Golurk usage, as well as some other things like Roselia and Braviary. That said, it is irksome that Sandslash and Ferroseed still get undeserved levels of usage in the tier. Thankfully, Munchlax and Dusclops are nearing the dropping range in their respective tiers, so they only need a little less usage to remove some deadweights from UU and RU. However, Hitmontop is in the same boat as Sandslash and Ferroseed.
