Quick tier update


Swagger is now banned from Gen 2 1v1. In the words of TehPazzaaMan, Swagger+Protect+Substitute pokemon never get hit, and the foe will get confused.

tagging urkerab to get this change implemented on rom

How do these relate to the Gens 3 and 5 in the OP?
The Gen 5 in the OP is the meta that existed as a ladder when Gen 5 was the current generation, and the Gen 3 was an OM throwback ladder (a short lived project similar to LCotM that gave Old Gen OMs a ladder for a month) in 2014.

Yung Dramps why is your Gen 5 1v1 only BW and not BW2? Seems strange to me

I did not make any of the rules for Gen 5 1v1. Go ask pqs, he was in charge of it.

Hey since the bh snake draft is finally starting, and since gen 5 bh is one of the metas being played, it'd be nice if Funbot28 could give a final verdict on the usability of pokestar mons
