With the new weighted stats taken into account, Nidoqueen is used enough by top players to get a small usage boost, just enough to push it into UU range. If this holds out we might end up losing Nidoqueen to UU players anyway despite the results of the vote :o.
Yeah, Nidoqueen is underrated and better than King in the current UU meta, and people have come to realize that, and thus Queen is most likely leaving us next tier shift. It's also somehow, as I had noticed, keeping up the trend that we always eventually lose our #1 used Pokemon to UU in a tier shift (Blastoise, Claydol, Cofagrigus, and now Nidoqueen will soon leave us)
Anyways, here's a set that I personally like in RU, and that I think is highly underrated.
Gardevoir @Life Orb
EV's: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid / Modest Nature
- Focus Blast
- Shadow Ball
Gardevoir is arguably one of the most underrated threats in RU. This set in particular excels. It's a great Nidoqueen check, outspeeding and hitting it with Psychic. It also traces Sheer Force, so it hits so damn hard it's not even funny. It also has Focus Blast to deal with Cryogonal and Absol, which is also pretty nice, as well as Shadow Ball to hurt opposing bulky Psychics as well as Gallade. T-bolt is...Tbolt. Hits Gatr and Tops, and such. Its 80 Speed stat is decent enough to outspeed some threats like Absol and Nidoqueen. Overall, once this thing comes in on the right thing, it's gonna wreck you a new one, so yeah. I really like using this set and find it to be pretty damn awesome.
