I said that standard teams strategies match risk with reward, or that the gap between risk and reward isn't big. for example, I consider Explosion teams, which I love, high risk medium reward, but if I built a standard team around, say, Ursaring instead of Snorlax, we move into "very high risk, medium reward." the "very" is important.
I'm suggesting that, as a compromise, we make the UU tier consist of most of the BL tier along with the "better" UU pokemon, something like:
and then put the rest as NU. it's a very rough draft, but as I've been saying, I think a BL tier excludes pokemon just as much as not having a NU tier. like Ursaring. if you're in OU, you'd use Snorlax. if you're in UU, you can't use Ursaring. so even though Ursaring is a good pokemon, it'll never get used.
