Mence will not in anyway fit into uber. I have put a theory based on previous shoddy stastics. Somebody had to do this Here are some Shoddy Stastics: August 2008, the last month of Chomp Garchomp Standard Usage:1 Uber Usage:16 Salamence Standard Usage:11 September 2008, one month after Chomp Garchomp Uber: 14 Salamence Standard:3 October 2008(Platinum Moves), two month after Chomp No changes November 2008 Chomp Uber: 17 Mence stays same as Scizor passes Heatran and Gengar drops from 2 to 10 December 2008 Chomp Uber:14 January 2009 Chomp Uber: 12 Mence: 2, 0.03 difference from Scizor February 2009 Chomp: 14 Mence:2 Brief Summary: Garchomp turning uber only affected the OU tier as before the ban, Chomp was used just as much. Salamence went from 10 to 3 immediately after Garchomp was banned, proving that Garchomp outclasses Mence in a way. My theory is that Garchomp's higher base speed, bulk, typing, and stab attacks had something to do with this. After Scizor entered OU, Mence moved to 3. Chomp hasn't changed much, always returning to 14. March 2009 Chomp:13 April 2009 Chomp:10 May 2009 Same June 2009 Chomp:11 July 2009 Chomp: 12 August 2009 Chomp: 13 September 2009 Chomp: 14(back to the old spot) October 2009 Mence:5 Chomp: 16 November 2009 Mence:2 Chomp: 17 December 2009 Mence:2 Chomp: 13 Chomp's usuge isn't stable. Let's just say it's not top usuges. Mence is stationed at 2 although Latias and Rotom-A is just a little behind June 2010, Mences last days Mence: 2 Uber: 26 Chomp: 13 Hasn't changed a lot in the past 6 months. Mence in uber has gone from the forties and thirties to the twenties. Conclusion: Mence's ban won't affect Ubers much. You guys predicting Mence's role in ubers don't realize that a ban in OU won't affect ubers. Garchomp moved 3 ranks and that's just because shoddy was just starting. Mence despite what Smogon analysis say, is outclassed by Raquaza. 5 base speed is made up by extremespeed, strong attacks, bulkiness and better movepool. Mence recently at 4.74% in ubers is comparable to a pokemon in OU. Tentacruel, 4.56% in OU. Now when was the last time you seen one of them.
