(Art By Bummer) Welcome to the official RU Viability Rankings thread. In this thread, we as a community will rank every usable Pokemon into ranks. You're encouraged to civilly post your thoughts and opinions on the various Pokemon that are usable in RU and what rank they should fall under. The general idea of the topic is to rank each RU Pokemon under "rankings" that go in descending order. Keep in mind that this thread is simply a reference list and should not be treated as anything more than that. New Pokemon RANK: S RANK: Nidoqueen Salazzle Zoroark A RANK: A+: Abomasnow-Mega Chesnaught Doublade Feraligatr Flygon Registeel Snorlax A: Bewear Dragalge Cresselia Gligar Milotic Porygon2 Roserade Shaymin Umbreon Zygarde-10% A-: Decidueye Durant Escavalier Gardevoir Gigalith Kommo-o Meloetta Moltres Pangoro Rhyperior B RANK B+: Cloyster Froslass Glalie-Mega Honchkrow Machamp Ninetales Quagsire Swellow Toxicroak Torkoal Tyrantrum Venusaur Virizion B: Araquanid Bronzong Goodra Hoopa Leafeon Mismagius Rotom-C Stoutland Xatu Yanmega B-: Ampharos-Mega Bruxish Comfey Cryogonal Diancie Espeon Florges Jellicent Rotom-H Slowbro Slowking C RANK C+: Aerodactyl Banette-Mega Camerupt-Mega Dhelmise Ferroseed Galvantula Linoone Noivern Persian-Alola Sableye C: Charizard Cofagrigus Minior Seismitoad Sigilyph Sneasel Tsareena Uxie Whimiscott C-: Donphan Drapion Golisopod Heliolisk Jolteon Omastar Qwilfish Shuckle D RANK (aka blacklist): Blastoise RULES: Don't discuss anything in the blacklist. Ever. Avoid one liners and flesh out your post, but remain concise. This helps further the discussion and gives your post more credibility. Do not derail the thread by asking "why did this move up/down". This is a discussion thread and posts like this don't add to the discussion. If you disagree about X Pokemon's placement, nominate it to move up/down. Similarly, do not derail the thread with other simple questions. Should you want to nominate an unranked Pokemon, it will only be ranked if you have at least 3 replays showing the Pokemon being used successfully vs good teams and it must have a distinguishable niche seen in these replays. If something didn't move up in the prior update, don't keep nominating it again and again unless a significant metagame shift occurs. This thread has nothing to do with tiering. Remain civil when posting in this thread.
