    Arcticblast, I really don't want to get in the business of answering a million specific questions about the stats that'll be online *hopefully* later today.

    tbh I find this super exciting. it means for the most part the suspect testing process is "working"

    For some reason people are still using Hitmonchan and Claydol on around 5% of ru teams. What even.

    Did expect the rises though.

    You can point that finger at Blametruth, we should make a rule for not messing with tier shifts just for this guy

    Why are Hidden Powers besides Ground still not showing up on moveset stats?

    Shadow Tag is banned in UU (and below), so Wobbuffet is useless. Similarly, Politoed is in PU because Drizzle is banned in UU.

    very disappointed that more stuff didnt get bumped down to NU. The NU metagame really needs something to refresh it. Hint Hint Mawile

    Mawile couldn't have fallen to NU at all on this tier shift anyways, seeing as it was in UU at the time. Wait until the next one.

    Mawile will likely go there next shift. Pokemon can only drop one tier at a time.

    i know im thinking ahead of myself lol. But anyways, would love to see some mons like Skuntank and Claydol, or possibly even Clawitzer (I dont know the usage of it but i feel like its lower, so just making suggestion), come down from RU.
