King might be preferable to Queen due to a slightly better stat distribution (and running out of PP less quickly thanks to Thrash), but the difference isn't huge (fixed by a few levels), and who knows, maybe somebody has a specific example where Nidoqueen's extra bulk keeps her alive where Nidoking would be going down.
I suspect pretty strongly that my Nidoqueen would've died at two points during my Nuzlocke had it been a Nidoqueen due to her bulk, so there you go.
Anyway, I think I've decided that Pidgey is Low tier, the arguments for it are more convincing than the ones against. Pidgey isn't a bad Pokemon but it is extremely inefficient, I agree. The fact that Pidgeot is one of my old favorites doesn't change that, so Low it is.
EDIT: Oh and I'm still saying Hypno is High tier, nothing has changed my mind about THAT
