    Wynaut
    
    (43 Pokemon)
    This means that:

    • Abra, Aipom, Bagon, Barboach, Bellsprout, Cranidos, Doduo, Exeggcute, Omanyte, Ponyta and Teddiursa (11 Pokemon) are out of the OU list.
    • Anorith, Aron, Eevee, Horsea, Magby, Onix, Phanpy, Stunky, Wooper and Wynaut (10 Pokemon) enter the OU list.

    Fun fact: Abra missed a place on this list by the smallest of margins.

    Yeah, Abra is bad (unless you run Sub-Life Orb). Thanks X-Act!

    Also, it's really really weird that Barboach has LEFT OU when it got Dragon Dance.....that's just backwards.

    Excellent...

    Wait, Wynaut is legal? o_o for some reason I thought he'd be delegated to Uber like his big bro... strange.

    So... is there anywhere where I could look up suggested movesets for Little Cuppers, like smogon's strategy Pokedex (but in miniature)?

    Well you can look up decent analysis at the Little Cup forum as we aren't continuing with Little Cup Analysis until Berry Juice is implemented. Otherwise, you can use usage stats to see what common move sets are.

    Actually, Barboach only left OU because hellmonkey left. IIRC he played a fuckton of battles last time the OU list was calculated and Barboach was something retarded like #15 or something.

    Lol, I expect this list is far more volatile because there are so few battlers.

    What? Barboach not on OU? I'm sad! xD
    I think that Abra isn't and wouldn't be ever in the OU list (maybe the 5 generation will give him some new good moves).

    Thanks alot X-Act!

    Yes, Wynaut is in fact allowed in Little Cup, you can find the Ubers list in our rules

    Barbroah isn't OU, because like SDS said only Hellmonkey used him, and he laddered a shitload befor he left. Wooper is a surprise to me to be OU, i guess I've missed out on something :P

    Hopefully maybe now that LC is on Smogon the OU list won't be so clouded with gimmicks and stupid trends...

    just a hope though

    I must say, the more people we get, the more sensible our OU list becomes. There are no big 'wtf's in this OU list, I've seen all of these pokes a lot over the past couple of months.

    Yea, I understand that, but it's still backwards.

    Indeed its kinda cute but if you've ever seen Wynaut in play its pretty limited, everything hits too hard and too fast here compared to Woobuffet in OU so yea its very situational, hardly a must use at all.
