ORAS Forgot to Use Credit to brightobject for the amazing banner! Introduction Welcome to the FU Metagame for X&Y! Because PU wasn't enough, Forgot to Use allows all the PU Pokemon that are 3.4% or lower in the 1760 usage stats to be used. Surprisingly, there are quite a lot of decent Pokemon available to use. Forgot to Use is playable by simply challenging your friends on Pokemon Showdown (simply select PU on Pokemon Showdown and make sure that both players are aware that they should be using Forgot to Use teams). You can easily go on SynIRC and join #xyfu to chat in real time with fellow Forgot to Use players and maybe find battles. Because the PU meta is still very young, tier shifts will happen every month until the ladder is stabilized in order to keep this tier interesting.

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 rank have very few flaws that are patched up by numerous positive traits. S+ rank Electabuzz Fraxure S Rank Murkrow S- Rank Articuno Simisage A Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are fantastic in the Forgot to Use metagame, and can sweep, support, or wall significant portions of the metagame. These Pokemon require less support than most others to be used effectively and have few flaws that can easily be compensated for when compared to their positive traits. A+ Rank Clefairy Dodrio Lairon Metang Quillidin Raticate Simisear A Rank Gogoat Golduck Huntail Kingler Krokorok Rampardos Seviper Swanna A- Rank Dusclops Electrode Flareon Gabite Gigalith Gourgeist-S Lapras Marshstomp Persian Politoed Regigigas Stunfisk Swoobat Wartortle Zweilous B Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are great in the Forgot to Use metagame. These Pokemon have more notable flaws than those above them that affect how they function in the tier. Their positive traits still outshine their negatives, but they require a bit more team support to bring out their full potential. B+ Butterfree Ditto Dwebble Illumise Linoone Luxray Meowstic-M Purugly Relicanth Servine Solrock Spritzee Vibrava Vullaby Whiscash Wigglytuff B Rank Bastiodon Beartic Bellossom Carbink Dragonair Fearow Frogadier Girafarig Glaceon Gourgeist-L Klang Leavanny Magcargo Mothim Noctowl Seaking Staravia Venipede Whirlipede B- Rank Chimecho Delibird Furfrou Hippopotas Lumineon Meowstic-F Octillery Scraggy Shedinja Swalot Wormadam-Trash C Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that have notable niches in the Forgot to Use metagame, but have just as many notable flaws that prevent them from being effective. Pokemon in the C tier often require significant support to be effective. Pokemon from this rank tend to face a lot of competition with the more commonly used Pokemon. C Rank Anorith Diglett Emolga Carvanha Lampent Lickitung Magmar Magnemite Natu Slaking Slowpoke Snover Sudowoodo Tentacool Unfezant Yanma D Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are mediocre in the Forgot to Use metagame, but are viable enough to justify their use on select teams. These Pokemon are either usable but have no real niche, or are only capable of doing their specific task and fail at doing anything more than that. Pokemon from this rank have multiple crippling flaws that prevent them from being successful a majority of the time, and are often severely outclassed because of it. D Rank Marill Sandshrew E Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are near unviable in the Forgot to Use metagame, and are only ranked because of an extremely minute niche that very rarely makes them useful on select teams. A few Pokemon in this rank aren't even considered viable at all, and are only placed in this rank because they have no where else to go.
