    Welcome to the bottom of the bottle, the Novelty Tier contains all the crowd favourites being given a final chance to have an impact on a game.

    Completely never used Pokemon (mainly novelty Pokemon), the Pokemon that are just taunted by GameFreak, by ALL of NU, by NFE Pokemon that steal their roles, and by the opponents of players who dare use them.

    I'm proposing an even lower tier where NFE Pokemon are disallowed, to just allow the weakest Pokemon ever to be used competitively, because lets be honest your actual favourite Pokemon probably sit in this tier:

    Banette
    Bellossom
    Castform
    Chatot
    Chimcho
    Corsola
    Delibird
    Dustox
    Farfetch'd
    Furret
    Heatmor
    Kricketune
    Ledian
    Luvdisc
    Mawile
    Minun
    Octillery
    Pachirisu
    Parasect
    Plusle
    Seaking
    Shuckle
    Spinda
    Watchog
    Wigglytuff

    24 pokemon makes it a very small tier, which i think is about right as all of them need as little competition as they can get.

    what does everybody else think about doing this? suggestions for Pokemon on the list and general rules to be added will all be taken into account.

    There won't be any more tiers below NU.

    Some Pokemon are just outclassed, they can't be helped. Plus a few of those have niche uses, like Plusle/Minun and Parasect.

    And Octillery is nowhere near pathetic enoguh to hang out with Ledian and Luvdisc.

    What Axa said. NU is as far down as we are going, and that's pretty much set in stone.
