    Hey all,

    It's been three months since UU went official, so that means it's time for a usage-based tier update.

    For those new to our system, how our tiers work is that they're primarily based on usage (the names of the tiers, OU, UU, RU and NU, literally mean "Overused," "Underused," "Rarely Used" and "Never Used"): Pokemon that are used heavily in the tier above get banned from the tiers below.

    The cutoff for each tier is the point at which you're more than 50% likely to encounter that Pokemon at least once in a given day of playing, if you play 20 battles a day. For those that don't feel like doing the math themselves, that number is approximately 3.41%. So that means if a Pokemon is used on 4% of OU teams, it's considered OU and is banned from UU, RU and NU.

    This 3.41% number is based on stats weighted over the previous three months, with 5/6 of the weighting from the last month, 1/8 from the month before that, and 1/24 from the month before that (ratio of 20-3-1).

    Finally, for those who are familiar with how we calculate usage stats know, we weight our stats based on player skill rating, and we're calculating stats using a baseline of 1695 for OU and 1630 for UU and RU (this is different from last time). To eliminate some numerical anomalies, we're also throwing out teams where the player's RD is greater than 100 (meaning they've had less than ~5 battles under their alt). In the next few days, I'll be making a thread discussing this decision in more detail.

    On top of the usage-based tiers we also have "borderline" or "BL" tiers, which are essentially Ubers banlists for the lower tiers. These lists ban Pokemon that aren't used enough in the higher tiers but are too overpowered for the lower ones. BL banlists are not subject to usage stats, except a BL Pokemon can, of course, move into a higher tier (from BL to OU, from BL2 to UU).

    Also note that a Pokemon cannot drop more than one tier per update cycle. Say no one used Charizard in OU for the next three months. That would drop it down to UU, even though it had no usage in UU for that period (how could it? It was OU).

    I think that covers everything! So without further ado, let me get to the tiers.

    Note that I'm publishing these before I publish May's stats. Those are still being generated, but I decided to make sure the usage-based tiers got top priority.

    Scolipede should have been OU months ago.

    UU looks really fun, I'm excited to use Goodra and Infernape and I am ready to have a blast.

    Jolteon looks cool in RU, like Heliolisk it'll be a nice BW Manectric in RU.

    Why are Electivire and Hitmonchan still RU? smh

    Gardevoir and Medicham are both awesome and deserve OU, welcome OU newcomers, I hope you do well in this tough OU environment.

    Is OU going to fix Baton pass? UU wants Quagsire and Vaporeon back. And FFS Smeargle got overused?

    Thoughts:

    - Aegislash remains the undisputed king of Gen 6.
    - Sand Stream + Rush is the new trend in the ladder, and the stats reflect that, with Tyranitar and Excadrill having risen a lot.
    - Manaphy is a thing of the past. Nobody uses it anymore. It's good, but not good like the other OU sweepers.
    - Three megas have been awarded their rightful place in OU, and I hope they stay there. Welcome, Gardevoir, Manectric and Medicham.
    - Volcarona and Mega Alakazam are going to break UU so hard it's not even funny. Blissey is also going to be a bitch.
    - Talonflame started going up again, despite the claims that birdspam is a thing of the past (it's not).
    - Baton Pass is now full OU. It's ironic since it's likely going to be nerfed before the end of June, and then stay OU for 2 more months...

    For clarification, Raikou is currently UU. It's in the RU usage stats and listed in the NU banlist because it was used a ton in RU before it moved up.

    UU has another few months of true peace at least, seeing as how togekiss just BARELY missed the cutoff.

    Praise Helix! Charizard has ascended unto OU and sits at the right hand of Dragonite, the Dragon Almighty, from whence he will judge the UU and RU. I believe in the power of the Fire/Dragon, the wisdom of Smogon, and the Charizardite everlasting. Amen!

    Charizard in OU? Definitely is because due to its MEGA, Megas and their base form should have separate tiers, Charizard without its MEGA is definitely NU/RU

    Infernape and Lucario in UU... and Infernape missed the cutoff just by a little bit. This is like Gen 5 UU all over again with fighting types. Volcarona as well? I have a hunch that Chandalure might get forced out with a new special fire type rocking the tier.

    Rotom Wash is as popular as ever i see.

    Also Rhyperior as the most used mon in RU makes me pleased, considering i have it on like 70% of my RU teams

    The way you say that implies that Charizard was never OU this generation :P
    Ever since the start of gen 6 competitive play, both forms of mega charizard have been OU and will probably never move. Obviously non mega charizard is crap, and I doubt anyone would even consider using it.
