Abomasnow and Kingdra where just short rises in popularity which were never going to stay in OU, the former mainly due to the existance of SR and the latter due to the obvious lack of permanent rain.
Donphan has just gotten worse and worse. Spinners are not worth their weight in most teams these days, every third pokemon gets SR and no one the hell cares about unSTABed ice shard anymore.
One has to actually look at what he's able to "counter" these days - the list got shorter by the month. Similarly, I give Hippowdon a maximum of 2 more months before it goes BL.
There is a grand total of one pokemon with a x4 rock weakness in OU, and that's because it makes for a great lead (Yanmega) and has some unique characteristics. Ninjask is just SR's latest casualty.
Porygon-z... I guess when most members look for their special sweeper these days, their first thought is "Gengar" , and so is their second one.
Wobbuffet I don't agree with, but that bird has been shot dead several times over recently. Why Milotic isn't used more only god knows. outstanding stats, hypnosis, reliable self-recovery, counters tons of stuff.
Oh, and guys, stop bashing and blaming Chomp for the shorter list of OU pokemon, I'm sure he'll have his very own little vote topic sooner rather than later.
