song here Hi there. Welcome to NU, the current "final frontier" of competitive Pokemon as we know it. Here lay forgotten giants, relics of past generations, competing with the the has-beens and also-rans of each generation. This generation of NU also features many NFE Pokemon, given that Eviolite is a powerful item in a tier where the power creep of this generation seems to have faded. As most of you know, there will be a massive shift in our now-balanced tier come January 1, where a large amount of Pokemon could rise to RU, among which are Slowking, Klinklang, Lanturn, Rhydon, Braviary, Swellow, Magneton, and maybe more! Also probably leaving is Dugtrio, which could rise all the way to OU! However, this thread isn't for discussing those Pokemon which could leave. It is for discussing the metagame at hand, which includes all of those Pokemon. So sit back, relax, and enjoy this while it lasts, since there's going to be a major change coming pretty soon.
