    Chansey in UU wont make a difference, Heracross usage may spike a bit, that's all

    If Chansey drops to UU and the Kyurem forms aren't insta banned, I might play UU. Chansey for stalling seems too good to pass up.

    honestly not surprised about the top 5 in every tier. Magmortar for RU!

    Honestly i prefer umbreon over chansey, but an eviolite boost may be too tempting to pass up.

    Shaymin-S scored #19 the month it was released and, if I recall correctly, had less than a week for that.

    No worries! Keldeo won't be legal in PO until July 1. Same with the Therian and Kyurem formes.

    And when July 1 *does* come around, all of these pokemon will default to OU (Keldeo based on its DW OU usage, the rest based on their Incarnate forme usage--and I believe we should playtest Thundurus-T before banning it).

    Well you might want to check JUNE'S stats...

    ...but Imposter Ditto is PU for the next three months or until a suspect council bans it.

    It demonstrates a fundamental problem with Smogon that people would regard it as a "playtest" and as "before" banning it as opposed to simply allowing a new Pokemon and expecting it to stay allowed, never considering the possibility of banning it until proven otherwise.

    Hold the phone there, Cheech.

    First off, all I was saying was exactly what you're saying--that it should have a shot in OU before being banished to Ubers. Sorry if my wording was poor.

    Secondly, I just run the server and publish the stats. I don't make tiering decisions. Hell, I don't even ladder. Taking *anything* I say as representative of what the Smogon community feels is always going to be a mistake.
