As many people around these parts despise, I am one of those equality for all, everything deserves a chance, give anything a shot fools who enjoys mixing tiers. Even so, I love the competitive side of battling, and I was trying to find a way to pit Pokemon of any tier together without changing their stats, movepools or anything of the sort. A balanced metagame, where NU Pokemon are somehow equally viable to Uber Pokemon. While many people have tried mixed tier, I don't think saying "Use this many of X tier Pokemon on each team" really balances things, so much as it causes people depend solely on their strongest Pokemon. My plan is more detailed than that, but still rather straightforward. A point system, in which players are given a limited amount of points with which to build their team. Each tier would have a point value, with NU being the lowest and Uber being the highest, and would select a team using the points at there disposal. Not only does this allow Pokemon in lower tiers to thrive, as using them means making space for higher tier Pokemon, but it also gives BL/BL2 Pokemon a chance to shine, as they have their own sets of points as well. The point distribution system I've thought of is: Total Points: 30 Uber: 12 OU: 8 BL: 7 UU: 6 BL2: 5 RU: 4 BL3 (If it comes to exist): 3 NU/NFEs not in an above tier: 2 I tried to balance things out as much as possible, but still have yet to find people to help play test it. The tier points/total points can be tweaked if necessary (which is likely) and tier changes may be necessary to accommodate the different rules (I can see NU weather sweepers becoming a favorite). All normal clauses are in effect (Moody/Evasion/OHKO/Species/Sleep) In addition to one more: You must use a full team of six Pokemon. The number for the point total may seem arbitrary, but the Full Team clause combined with the 30 point limit prevents the use of two Ubers on a team, while making any other pairing, up to Uber and OU, available. If people are interested in helping me play test this, please let me know.
