We are officially no longer in RU Beta with the recent shifts (granted its been forever anyways)! The initial ban list for RU is every mon listed as OU and UU here as well as the following pokemon and abilities: bl2 things (Move your mouse to reveal the content) bl2 things (open) bl2 things (close) Baton Pass Bewear Drizzle Hawlucha Kyurem Lucario Suicune Talonflame Tornadus Venomoth From RU Beta we have lost the following mons: Nidoqueen Smeargle And we gained nothing. The council will be using this shift period to assess the meta and in approximately a week will hold a vote in order to remove any pokemon that are potentially broken. Following that we will continue to retest pokemon that are deserving of a retest. In the mean time feel free to discuss how Nidoqueen leaving the tier will change the metagame (or Smeargle, lol), what pokemon are potentially suspect/ban worthy in the new metagame, or anything about the RU tier. NP song because PS is cured and we finally got stats + official RU.
