Some pretty interesting tier shifts. About time there was some change around here. Anyways, as others have said, Roselia will have a large impact this stage due to the fact that Amoongus is leaving, giving it less competition in the way of typing, and that NU is pretty lacking in diverse Spike-setters. Stoutland will likely have little impact though as there are many other normal-types in the tier which perform its roles better than it does. As for Emboar leaving, I'll miss that thing. I used CBoar + Spikes on so many offensive teams and it was great at applying pressure on teams once it got in. Musharna will become a much more definitive Fighting-Type check since it won't have to worry about predicting a Superpower only to get hit by a Flare Blitz. That and Hail leaving pretty much ensure it being back to it's old position of dominance this stage. As for Absol, I won't miss it for its trapping ability, since Skuntank can also beat the top Psychics of the tier, and is easier to get into battle by virtue of its typing. I've been using it on alot of teams lately mostly because of its powerful STAB Sucker Punch, which let it be a Psychic trapper as well as a revenge-killer. Cincinno isn't something I think will have a huge impact really outside of some mons not having to fear being ouotsped by it/having their subs broken by it. I always found it fairly predictable and easy to beat through smart play, as its checks are generally things that should already be on a good team.
Anyways, overall I'm excited for this stage. There'll be alot of potential for some cool new teams and pokemon to shine.
