Welcome to the Anything Goes Viability Ranking project. The concept of this thread is that we will organize the Pokémon into ranks, varying on how good they are within the metagame. You are encouraged to post thoughts on where each Pokémon should be ranked; however, there are a few regulations to follow:

- Nominations without context or supporting evidence will be ignored. Providing replays and usage stats are excellent ways to display your nominated Pokémon in action; although, this is not required and should not be the basis of your argument.
- Be civil when debating with other users. Nothing makes an argument seem more subjective than when insults and name-calling occurs instead of actual debate on the topic at hand. Posts that take this to the extreme will be deleted.
- Ensure any replays provided are against skilled opponents with actual teams. If your opponent has a Choice Band Shaymin-Sky, this is a clear indication that this is not the case.​

The number before the Pokémon sprite indicates speed.
The number after the sprite and in the parentheses, indicates the investment needed.
Comments such as "at +1", "at +2", "at -1", indicate the boost or drop in Speed that the Pokémon has.
Comments after "//" explain how the Pokémon gets that Speed.
If the Pokémon obtains this through a Choice Scarf or through set-up moves, then it is not explained.

Welcome to the official Anything Goes Viability Rankings. The concept of this thread is that we will organize the Pokémon in this metagame into ranks, varying on how good they are. You are encouraged to post thoughts on where each Pokémon should be ranked; however, there are a few regulations we follow:

Firstly, nominations without context or supporting evidence will be ignored. Providing replays and usage stats are excellent ways to display your nominated Pokémon in action; although, this is not required and should not be the basis of your argument.
Secondly, be civil when debating with other users. Nothing makes your argument seem more invalid than when you begin to insult another user instead of actually debating the topic at hand.
Thirdly, ensure any replays provided are against skilled opponents with actual teams. If your opponent has a Choice Specs Ho-Oh, this is a clear indication that this is not the case.

Nihilego to D. It's super easy to defog on unless you are fairy Arceus, and it's also setup bait and passive as all hell. It doesn't do much othr than set TSpikes, which when combined with the abundant Defog and Mega Gengar is really mediocre.
Has anyone ever used Toxapex? It just seems really bad on paper, and I'm not sure why it's ranked.
Tapu Lele to B-. Deoxys Spam is rlly good, and tapu lele is all of that. Scarf, taunt, and Nature's madness make it not dead weight itself, either, while psychic does hit decently hard.
Ekiller to A+. A is way overestimating its nerf, and it can bypass any given check/counter as easily as it did last gen. Extreme Speed is also a generic check to a lot of things, and it's way too splashable for the A Rank. It's not as good as Mega Gengar, yes, but it's close, and a cut above the A rank mons around it.


Formatting heavily based off of Minority's Ubers Version.

* First number, before the Pokémon sprite, indicates speed.
* The number after the sprite and in the parentheses, indicates the investment needed.
* "at +1", "at +2", "at -1", indicate the boost or drop in Speed that the Pokémon has.
* Comments after "//" explain how the Pokémon gets that Speed.
* If the Pokémon obtains this through a Choice Scarf or through Set-up moves, then it is not explained.
Maybe a +1 Magearna because it doesn't just heart swap on Xerneas? Like Megamence or Gyara

Suggested changes:
Deoxys-Attack to pursuit. It's not a meme, I swear; it forces out Mega Gengar really reliably, can KO it with pursuit, and if you're a baller can switch in with Sash while Gengar mega evolves.
Remove Regular Rayquaza from a bunch of things. I'm sure it has a niche, but it's almost certainly not a usable specs, LO, Dragon Dance, Band, and Scarf user. As a start, I would think that you would remove scarf (rlly bad) and specs (mediocre on MRay, much less here). Resources are for mons u know are good, not stuff you slap on and pray work.
Darkceus to Yveltal checks, Klefki and Nihelego out (I think we discussed why)
Pyukumuku to Xerneas checks? It checks after boosting, but not before, so idk.
Mluk isn't an arceus check, unless this is wallceus as well? (if so, there should be a whole bunch more answers)
Since when is calm mind good on sableye?
Why is there a spot for "Primal Pokemon?" There isn't a <Primal slot> to use up like there is for megas.
Why is Nihilego there its P bad.

Mega Lucario is really underrated as a Mega, and I believe it is ranked too low. It doesn't completely get outclassed by Mega Rayquaza as this defeats things like Arceus-Dark, which I believe is becoming more common, and Arceus-Fairy. Access to Priority to beat Gengar, which also is becoming more common really helps it. Resistance to Extreme Speed and Toxic are also valueble compared to Mega Rayquaza. It is somewhat deadweight against offense, but I believe Balance is becoming more and more common, something Lucario likes. It can setup on more things than we all realise and I think its ranked way too low, considering its capabilities.

Excadrill is underrated as a lead. With both Toxic and Rapid Spin in its arsenal it can do quite a lot. Even with the amount of Ghost Types this generation, you still force them in to spinblock which basically lets you hurt them a little, which is honestly really great for setup sweepers like Arceus and Mega Rayquaza, it also helps against Balance and Stall because with its Ability you basically have free Stealth Rock most of the time. I believe Excadrill is ranked too low, even though it isn't used a lot in the metagame, I still believe it should get ranked higher.
