For those of you that are blind, the Borderline tier is used to differentiate which Standard Pokemon are very common and not as common. This is considering we don't allow Borderlines in the UU metagame here either way.
If Tangela and Bellossom aren't allowed, then Hitmonchan shouldn't be either. There is NOTHING in that meta that can do jack to him, the best counter probably being Whiscash which can take a hit or two but can't do much back.
Trust me when I say that NU is pretty balanced with Flareon, Tangela, and Bellossom. I can see why you would want Flareon banned (though I certainly don't), but Tangela is a pretty necessary counterbalance to Hitmonchan.
Yeah, 0rz you are totally right. Originally I wanted to just move Flareon up because really it doesn't belong in NU, but then I had to move Tangela and Bellossom up mostly because they're honestly too strong if Flareon isn't there and then I forgot about Hitmonchan.
i think dodrio should be standard, even though i dont see it much. best normal / flying in the game. 2hkos lots of pokemon, like weezing and salamence, even after an intimidate. i think it also has the strongest normal attack in the entire game as well, excluding explosion and selfdestruct. works a little bit like aerodactyl, and thats standard, so so should dodrio.
