Nidoqueen: Do Not Ban
Nobody's denying that Nidoqueen isnt one of the best Pokemon in the tier, in fact, saying that Nidoqueen isnt a top tier threat in RU should be a federal offense, but i don't think that she warrants a ban. One of the main reasons that people think Nidoqueen is broken is because its supposed to pressure Balanced and Stall teams into being unviable, after playing quite a few matches with many different playstyles, i can say that both balanced and stall teams are capable of handling Nidoqueen. Balanced teams have multiple options for checking queen including Uxie, Mesprit, Gardevoir, Gallade, and Piloswine, all of which have a defined niche outside of beating queen, and a few are even top tier threats otherwise. Stall teams are more troubled, but there are still ways for a stall team to deal with Nidoqueen via things like Musharna, Clefable, and even Munchlax if your genuinely that desperate. I feel the real thing thats pressuring RU stall teams isn't just Nidoqueen, but the sheer amount of offensive Pokemon that reside in the RU tier. Gallade, Druddigon, Moltres, Sigilyph, and Magmortar are just a few examples of common Pokemon that can give Stall teams a run for their money, making it a combined effort if anything. People have also mentioned that using Nidoqueen gives you an immediate advantage over a player who isn't using it, but i can say from personal experience that this isn't true, i've used and played against multiple teams without Nidoqueen and i never felt like either player had an advantage during the match simply because of queen. All in all, while Nidoqueen is easily one of the, if not the best Pokemon in the RU tier at the moment, i dont think that its inherently broken, and it should remain in RU until UU players wisen up and it moves up (trust me, it will happen).
Dont hurt me if my arguments are dumb :x
