    YES

    It would likely be quickbanned within a few days but it would be a good Sawk replacement for BL3

    Oh boy, next month for RU is looking beautiful but seriously...

    We had to wait for ORAS to be close to its end to get all these potential drops? seriously? Oh well, we take those. Fuck toxicroak tho.

    The quality of your posting is a direct insult to everyone reading this thread.

    [20:29] #lighthouses: now i will be a kind person 100% of the time

    gardevoir would be a pretty cool mon in RU. Got potential for some sets like Scarf, Specs, whatever offensive variant there is, etc. p2 would be annoying as heck, but honestly sounds manageable.

    It wouldn't stay OU it would get sent to BL which is sorta OU but w/e. I don't know if you knew that but the way you phrased it kinda made me want to get this cleared up.

    Azelf being OU really blew me by surprise, it was a pretty stealthy tier increase but it rocks!

    Lol, finally Sawk goes to RU.
    Quagsire, maan concentrate hard, you're slipping. It has come back home literally after seeing the whole world.
    I get it, that team is pretty good for laddering, but this bird-spam hype should go down though, azelf has no business up in OU.

    I hope Quagsire enjoyed his two second voyage around all of the tiers.

    I think something went wrong because the usage of these three RU mons are to good to be true.
    Since when do RU players know not to use these and use better mons like sneasel, Houndoom or Delphox XD.
    But on a serious note this is actually amazing if this usage trend goes on into next month, but it is probably only due to the suspect test.
    But it still would be nice when some really really bad and unviable pokemon will leave the tier and make RU look better.

    Why isn't using stuff like cincinno and ambipom a bannable offense in ru
    Depriving a good user such as myself the ability to spam kings rock cinno is honestly, a travesty
