    The difference is that they took an hit in viability(greater opportunity cost for the two bugs, faster speed tiers and the lead set ruined by Mega Sableye for Terrakion), while if anything Zapdos' viability rose since it's one of the best checks for stuff like genies, Excadrill, Talonflame, normal Gyarados and such.

    Is doubles revolutionizing? On a serious note though, I really hope that Doubles UU becomes a more better metagame, because OU should be good first..
    Anyways, I hope that Diancie isn't fairly underused anymore, such a good mega and it doesn't have all that much usage..

    1 liner posts isn't exactly that great of a discussion to begin with, and all I see are "damn (x mon) in (x tier) hype!!", "I hope (x mon) drops" or "X mon wont drop cuz its good"

    I suppose that's fair a complaint then. But I wouldn't call it shitposting; shitposting is something else entirely. I'd chalk it up to excitement as this tier shift is going to be pretty big for all tiers (except OU heh).

    (However I am now fearful that this is dragging the thread even further off so apologies.)

    So… when are the new tier shifts coming? i'm hoping that scrafty and flygon drop, as well as maybe trevenant.
    UU looks to steal things from RU: Doublade, Cresselia, Abomasnow, Heliolisk.
    OU looks to take: hippo.
    OU might drop: mandibuzz, mamoswine, gallade (mega banned from uu).
    UU might drop: kingdra, scrafty (yay),flygon (yay), noivern.
    RU might steal: quagsire, camerupt.
    Nu might get: kabutops, pinsir.

    drop hard please, these are all incredibly overrated Pokémon in the Doubles metagame, Sylveon is the only real good one but it's massively overused and the others are just bad or niche

    | 75 | Diancie | 2.34134% | 7911 | 2.341% | 0 | 0.000% |
    How is this under Pachirisu or Shuckle, this is the best mega in the metagame apart from Kanga and Char-Y..
    | 76 | Keldeo | 2.28629% | 7725 | 2.286% | 0 | 0.000% |
    ngggg, this is so easy to fit on your team and it is so strong
    | 77 | Thundurus-Therian | 2.23716% | 7559 | 2.237% | 0 | 0.000% |
    how is this so low, it has incredible breaking potential with specs, and even with scarf it can be absolutely demolishing within rain
    | 87 | Scrafty | 2.08237% | 7036 | 2.082% | 0 | 0.000% |
    this is Doubles UU, what the fuck
    | 99 | Shaymin-Sky | 1.76895% | 5977 | 1.769% | 0 | 0.000% |
    ahahaahah, this is so weird, this is an incredible tier 1 / a+ pokémon and it is barely top 100..

    people talk about this being suspect worthy and it is 113th

    I'm done
    I hope that these next tier updates actually make Doubles UU healthier, because this is ridiculous..

    Do you guys think Zam has a chance of rising to OU? It's mega received a lot of hype recently in OU and I am seeing it a lot now

    I'm skeptical of Zam rising this shift, but I wouldn't be too surprised if it rose next one.

    Locking this thread. This shit is ridiculous. Tier update in the next 24 hours, barring an emergency or a server outage.
