But every pokemon does have a shot at OU. Well, except Ubers. You can use whatever you want in OU. Tiers are merely the reflections of usage statistics, so you make your own tiers really. You can still use whatever you want in OU.
Also, GenVI. Dark Gym. Please?
1. Color Change is an interesting ability. You put it on a pokemon with decent stats and normal typing, and it's better than any other pokemon with those stats in many situations. Situaitonal.
2. Just because you CAN
play Sunkern's evolution in OU doesn't mean you should. In any situation it is outclassed by other pokemon.
I contend that if pokemon x is outclassed in every regard by pokemon y, it is redundant and thus bad design. To say that every pokemon should have a shot at competitive play just is to say that no pokemon should strictly outclass another.
That's hard to design, but rewarding gameplaywise.
3. Yes, a Dark Gym would be nice. 16 gyms total w/o repeats would be nice too.
