Yeah, you read the title right. This is because of many reasons: 1) No weighted statistics 2) Statistics now count every Pokemon in the team, not every Pokemon used. 3) Garchomp being banned in September 4) Can't put any weightings on July, August and September stats since they're the first stats being released in this new way. Solutions: For 1), there's nothing I can do except use the unweighted stats (duh!). For 3) and 4), I can either use September's stats only, or use July, August and September stats and ignore Garchomp's stats for July and August. For 2), this means that the 75% limit of usages calculation is gone. The stats now don't convey usages, but Pokemon put in teams during battles. This is why the number of Pokemon in the first 75% was so low for July and August... it wasn't providing the same number as before! To this end, I suggest those Pokemon that are not rarely put in teams to be called OU now. Note that I didn't say 'frequently' but 'not rarely'. The truth is that few Pokemon appear frequently in OU. Last month, the only Pokemon that had a chance of appearing in one out of every 4 teams more often than not were Garchomp, Gengar, Gyarados, Metagross, Lucario, Deoxys-S, Blissey and Heatran - only 8 Pokemon. Compare this to Ubers where 6 Pokemon appear in one out of every TWO teams, which means that any random Uber battle will contain the top 6 Pokemon more often than not. This fully illustrates the point that OU is really not the Pokemon that show up frequently in teams, but the Pokemon that don't appear rarely in teams. We thus need to find a cut-off point for 'rare', not for 'frequent'. Now this cut-off point can be as 'rare' as we want. Maybe a Pokemon is considered 'not rare' if, when looking at 15 random teams, it appears among them at least once more often than not. Or maybe the number of teams should be 20, or 10, or 16, or whatever. If I use '15', the number of Pokemon satisfying this criterion would be 40 for the Standard Ladder and 39 in the Suspect Ladder. Here is a chart noting the number of Pokemon satisfying this criterion for 10 to 25 teams in Standard and in Suspect of last August's stats: Code: Number of Teams T Number of Pokemon that appear among T teams Number of Pokemon that appear among T teams at least once more often than not in Standard at least once more often than not in Suspect 10 28 27 11 33 30 12 34 32 13 37 35 14 38 38 15 40 39 16 42 41 17 44 41 18 45 42 19 47 45 20 49 46 21 51 47 22 51 48 23 52 49 24 54 50 25 55 52 Our choice of T depends on how many OU Pokemon we want, really. So, how many do we want?
