So, what's the plan with Dugtrio now? Are we dropping it to a lower tier since it's pretty pointless in OU, or just leaving it there so as to not shake up anything else? I'm mostly curious since it's going to need an analysis revamp either way, but what tier it's in will obviously affect how that's handled...
It should stay in whichever tier it received sufficient usage to be in at the end of ORAS, like any other Pokemon in OU, UU, RU, NU, and PU. We should not retroactively change a pokemon’s tier after a generation is finished as doing so can open up a can of worms, even if the subject did clearly lose all viability.
