Ok, time to wrap some things together.
First of all, I've decided that we are going to make seprate entries for Pokémon who evolve by trading if the tiering placement is different. For example, if Elekid that stops at Electabuzz is considered High Tier and Elekid that fully evolves into Electivire through trading is also considered High Tier, they will be combined into one entry. The opposite would apply to, for example, Shelmet and Accelgor. Accelgor is clearly better than Shelmet.
So, when it comes to your suggestion for Onix atsync, I think you should reconsider its placement a bit. Even if it is for Onix with a trade to Steelix. Metal Coat can't be found until after the main game, where it is available in Clay Tunnel and the Black City shop. The only way to get Metal Coat within the main game is to find a Magnemite holding it, and that's only a 5% chance. I haven't used Onix or Steelix myself, but based on that fact alone, and that Onix is rare in itself, I would see it as a Low Tier Pokémon at best. Bottom if it's w/o trading.
Then we come to the controversial Scrafty and Heracross discussion that's been going on. From what I've been reading, and what you guys have said the past two days, I'm going to move Heracross to Top Tier and move down Scraggy to High Tier. That's the best conclusion get out of it. Of course you're free to argue against this, but that's what's going to happen for now. Sandile will be left untouched unless someone makes a case for it later on.
And finally, the 5 Pokémon I put up for immediate tiering placement are going to be placed in the following tiers, as there haven't been any more posts against them:
Golurk to Low Tier
Sawk to Middle Tier
Throh to Low Tier
Druddigon to Low Tier
Zweilous to Low Tier
That was all I wanted to say for now. I'll be bringing up more Pokémon like the ones above, so look out for that. As you were.
The OP as been updated accordingly.
