And now Porygon2 is the first NFE to be a OU Pokemon (which for some reason I find awesome).
Little random blurb: Umbreon and Porygon2 were OU in G/S/C days and after a R/S/E wait and now with the remakes coming out they return to OU.
Perhaps this means stall and defensive play is on rise?
No just idiocracy(when referring to Umbreon). Sure, it is a good pokemon in its own right, but in this metagame allowing a pokemon to switch in on weak, resisted attacks is a very bad thing, especially when those who resist are three of the most deadly sweepers(Scizor, Lucario, Heatran, to name a few). Atleast with Scizor and Tyranitar you just took out a huge threat with Pursuit(Gengar, Latias, etc.) but Umbreon just sits there Paybacking...
