    I was thinking that showdown should make a battle option for a "MIxed Tier" where you have to play with 2 ubers, 2 OU, and 2 UU or under. This seems like it would be much more competitive and a new way to spice things up. Please let me know what you guys think!

    You need to get this approved by either Articblast or Birkal, sorry man.

    These kinds of metas have been pitched in the past but they really don't work.

    I hope you realize how well some Pokemon in OU (like Ferrothorn, Tentacruel, and Latias) and UU (like Kingdra) can come together to form a solid Rain team with Kyogre and another Uber Pokemon of choice that would be OP as hell in this meta.

    There is always the option of banning certain things such as DrizzleSwim or SmashPass if needed. It sounds cool otherwise, but I'm not sure how the general population of Smogon players would feel about this.

    This was not approved by an OM mod, and "Mixed Tier" has never been particularly competitive at higher levels of play. In the future, please read the Other Metagames Rules before posting.
