I'd also like to chime in on the argument about Absol. I think it should be moved down to A, not because I think it is ineffective by any means, but primarily because I think it doesn't really fit into the description of the S-class. "Reserved for Pokemon that are amazing in the NU metagame. These Pokemon are usually able to perform a variety of roles effectively, or can just do one extremely well. Their use has low risk involved and high reward exerted. Pokemon in this tier have very few flaws that are patched up by numerous positive traits." Yes, Absol is excellent at killing things. However, it really doesn't seem like it fits the description of an S-class pokemon when you look at the third and fourth sentences: "their use has low risk involved." Absol has absolutely atrocious defenses, very unimpressive speed, and its standard set has several moves whose functioning depends entirely on mind games. If you choose wrong, you could be outsped and OHKO'd by a Twineedle from a Beedrill. Yes, that is an an extreme and fairly stupid example, but it goes to show how risky using Absol can be.
