Discussion of 'Undiscovered' Threats Introduction: RU is a tier with a ton of viable threats. It's fairly easy to pick out a Pokemon from NU and use it in RU, since the tier is so diverse. However, few players do this as NU Pokemon seem mostly gimmicky, but we've discovered some amazing Pokemon in the past such as Absol, Swellow, and Ludicolo. If you've been trying out a lesser-used Pokemon that does really well in the tier, then please post it here. This will help find some great threats for people to use that can surprise opponents and become 'new' additions to the RU tier. It would be helpful if you posted the sprite of the Pokemon and a brief description of the sets you used or why you think it is effective. Rules: In order to keep the thread organized and helpful, we're going to need a few ways to help maintain the thread. Your post WILL be deleted if you do not follow these rules: We will only be discussing a maximum of 2 threats a week. Do NOT post another threat if there are already two threats currently being discussed in the thread. This will let us fully discuss certain Pokemon, like the Pokemon of the Week does. Don't post 2 Pokemon in one week either. If you don't follow this rule, your post will be deleted. Try not to post Pokemon that have their skill known to the majority of players. We know that Tauros and Fraxure are good Pokemon, so we don't need to reiterate their strengths. If you post a Pokemon is not used much and is already known to be bad or just decent at best, your post will be deleted. Stuff like Alomomola and Ninjask is unacceptable. You can post a Pokemon that you think has potential, but isn't tested yet. However, you must have a really good explanation of why you think this so people can discuss whether or not the threat is effective. Theorymonning is welcomed, but it would help the discussion if you test the Pokemon. Discussions: Click on a Pokemon to find the discussion about it. Pokemon that are worth using will be in Blue, and Pokemon not worth using will be in Orange. Week 1: Drifblim Leavanny Week 2: Eelektross Seismitoad Week 3: Piloswine Kangaskhan Week 4: Altaria Without further adieu, let's find some new threats!
