    Eh... Mega Pinsir was quick banned (in less than a day) because it was obviously on a different caliber both as a wallbreaker and as a sweeper compared to UU's other mons. Mega Gyarados looks relatively busted but UU is so used to water types so it's not like they are entirely unprepared for it. The real question is wether does Mega Gyarados create too much pressure on a tier that already has to worry about so many other threats.

    And this is all theorymonning until Mega Gyara actually drops as it may be able to stay in OU now given how much unexpected rise in usage it got in December
    November: | 69 | Gyarados-Mega | 1.900% |
    December: | 54 | Gyarados-Mega | 2.708% |

    It is a tier shift month, right? Not just quick drops?

    Nah, I don't believe so. The title of the thread indicates the last shift took place in December, and it's a three-month cycle.

    It's a full tier shift month, the new thread was made in December because of the new split between megas and base forms in that month, but the last full shift was November.

    Mega Pinsir lasted less than 9 hours. I know, because it dropped after I went to work that day and it was gone before I got home.
