Okay, im going to do something i havent been able to do in a while, proposed changes!
So looking through the nominated things in the past two pages i see......
Piloswine UP from Untested Rank to B rank
Walrein UP from Untested Rank to B rank
Glaceon UP from Untested Rank to B rank
Rotom-F UP from Untested Rank to A rank
Adding Regice to Untested Rank
I personally agree with all of these changes except Regice, i have only seen one Regice in the entire time i have played RU, and quite frankly, it didnt accomplish much (for reference, it was today). Ice Body is actually currently unreleased on Regice sadly, hurting its viability as a hail check and addition to hail, it also recieves quite a bit of competition from Cryogonal, who is also a good special wall, is faster, carries recover, and most importantly Rapid Spin. If Regice had Ice Body now i would give it a rank for sure, but i just cant see it above C rank at this point if given a rank at all.
Im also going to vouch for Piloswine a bit, i was bored today and decided to throw together a silly mono ice team for fun, and i ended up using Piloswine as my Stealth Rock setter because frankly, there was no other option haha. Piloswine has quite a bit going for it in RU these days, and the new addition of Hail gives Piloswine even more of a reason to be used, as a combination of Thick Fat and Piloswine's excellent bulk makes it the ideal Blizzard absorber for an offensive team. Speaking of bulk, Piloswine's bulk is insane, i mean, even when burdened with the dreaded Ice-type, it can take all kinds of hits, and can even survive attacks its weak to with quite a bit of hp in a pinch. 100 Attack is more than enough to allow Piloswine to strike back against the opponents its taking hits from, as well. Piloswine's offensive prowess is further bolstered by the excellent coverage provided by Piloswine's Ice and Ground STABs, making it somewhat harder to wall the pig mammoth. Piloswine's Ice Shard comes in handy quite a bit when facing opponents using threats such as Lilligant, Rotom-C, and Sceptile, as it can easily pick off a slightly weakened one with the priority move. Piloswine was a rising star last metagame and has only gotten better in the current one imo, so i would be happy to move him up to B rank :>.
So what do you guys think of the new proposed changes, anything that you agree or disagree on?
