    TerraCott isn't horrible; the problem is that everyone bases their entire fuckin team around it as a wincon and considering how easy this strategy is to recognize and stop, it often just falls flat on face. Whimsicott is sucky tho I agree it doesn't deserve that much usage

    also the article was this http://www.smogon.com/smog/issue37/bad-to-the-core i think. It mentions TerraCott at the bottom of the page (also required reading for everyone starting dubs yn)

    I'm still waiting for the day when Zapdos drops

    I'm excited to see that Mamoswine may drop though. UU could use another good Ice-type, especially when you see Flying- and Dragon-types everywhere.

    Also it has Freeze Dry so fuck Suicune (but mostly Swampert I guess)

    Earthquake hits Suicune harder than Freeze-Dry, but it's still a good option for Swampert.

    If Hitmonchan, Scrafty, Flygon, and Trevenant all drop down from their respective tiers, this upcoming tier shift will be the best day ever.

    Don't forget Mandibuzz dropping from OU. Definitely not on the same level of this garbage, but always felt like not belonging to OU since the day Aegislash was banned.

    True, but hex keeps asking it to drop to uu because he thinks it sucks in OU and it would be better off in UU

    Scrafty in RU ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Flygon in RU ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Noivern in RU ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
    Kingdra in RU (ノಠ_ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

    Looking forward to trying out Noivern most personally. As we've seen though, RU doesn't like Hurricane (Mega Pidge + Moltres bans). Not so excited for facing Kingdra, though, to be honest. Losing Cress, Doublade and (potentially) Aboma will be equally as big changes to the tier as the drops too.

    Will be interesting to see what happens anyway. I'd also like to see Trevenant drop, just to see how it fairs in RU (might be bad, might be average, can't see it being good though) but I don't think it will happen yet.

    Can you guys like, stop shitposting?

    This thread is for stats, if you wanna discuss specific rises/drops why not discuss them in their respective metagame discussion?

    Do you even know what shitposting is or do you think it makes you look cool to call people out? Because commenting on rises/drops (maybe they are off-topic in this specific thread idk) isn't shitposting in the slightest. People are having a genuine discussion, shitposting is just spamming a thread about random garbage.
