Tier Jumbling Proposals
So there's a couple of questionably-placed Pokemon in BL and OU, and I wanted to gauge how much consensus there would be in moving some or all of these critters:
OU -> BL
BL -> OU
Of the above, the only one I really feel like would be a controversial move is Dragonite to OU, but he's got healthy usage and certainly has OU power.
I personally hate the idea of adding more Pokemon to an already-bloated BL tier, mostly since it reinforces the concept of old-gen BL as fundamentally different from new-gen BL. However, an overhaul of the concept of old-gen BL is not what I'm aiming for; that's far too ambitious an aim for this humble post. Given what we have, I feel that Zam and Pgon2 are definitely not "legitimate" OU threats, whereas Vaporeon and Dragonite definitely are.
Any thoughts? Support? Dissent?
