Hey guys. As we've all seen, July's usage stats don't reflect the RU metagame at all; they don't really show what's best and things that deserve more usage aren't getting it. Well, we have the power to change that, and we can show new RU players what the true most used Pokemon should be. This thread is designed to reorganize the usage stats step by step, so the top 10 Pokemon will be determined first and so on. Please say why you think a specific Pokemon deserves the spot that it does, so we can make a list of the best Pokemon in the tier! If you're new, this thread is for you: once you get the idea of what Pokemon are the best, head over to the Teambuilding thread to find out what sets each Pokemon uses! If you're old(?) and see a Pokemon missing from the Teambuilding thread, but that Pokemon is on the list, please post a set for that Pokemon! Without further ado, let's get to organizing the tier: Tier List: 1. Nidoqueen 2. Kabutops 3. Moltres 4. Sceptile 5. Entei 6. Uxie 7. Smeargle 8. Escavalier 9. Rotom-C 10. Spiritomb August 2012 Usage Stats (kindly posted by ShakeItUp) Top 10: 1. Cofagrigus 2. Nidoqueen 3. Slowking 4. Uxie 5. Gallade 6. Entei 7. Sceptile 8. Kabutops 9. Moltres 10. Galvantula I don't know about you, but I certainly disagree with most of this list! Post what you think the #1 Pokemon should be.
