    With the vote being as razor-thin as it was, coming down to the final vote, I personally will still be keeping my eye on Rotom-Frost. Such a controversial Pokemon might be worth revisiting in the future. For now, however, I hope you continue to enjoy our tier, especially with several different...

    Quick post to mention that ZU saw no tier shifts this month since there are no longer any quickrises, but based on recent stats we can expect some weird changes in July, so look forward to that!

    Okay so, I'm leaving home on Monday and don't have time to write the rest of this week, so I'm just gonna write my Rotom-Frost post now. What are we dealing with? To start, let's just go over the Pokemon itself. First off, its typing is a giant mixed bag. On one hand, Ice-types (and thus...

    We have reached the end of May and with that we have lost our OMotM status and will soon be losing our ladder. Thank you all so much for the excellent activity in the last month! I'm very much looking forward to seeing the usage stats! We also had our first weekly Community-Create-A-Team (which...

    With Spikes on the decline, Roselia has only been getting worse recently. In addition to that, both Smeargle and Crustle are better Spike setters, while Mareanie is a better TSpikes setter. Its typing means that it cannot fit on the same team as several of the best Pokemon in our meta, like...

    Here is a VR update! We're finally updating the lower ranks after the most recent shift, which is massively delayed because of everything, from very lengthy discussions to piratepad crashing completely for a week, working against us. As such it's also a pretty big shift and there's no reasoning...

    Golem hard walls every Ninjask that isn't SD Z-Dig, which this isn't since it's Z-Sand Attack. Similarly, Rotom-Fan easily takes it on too. Lycanroc doesn't switch in but does easily revenge kill as long as you don't get super unlucky (Accelerock). Copycat Liepard annoys it greatly, Mawile walls...

    Z-Moves that boost Evasion are not banned by Evasion clause I get that it can be frustrating but I'm not going out of my way to complex ban something that requires inmense luck to work

    To start off, Raticate is currently ranked in C-, so it's not unranked. The reason it's that low is that up until recently, we had Ursaring in the tier, which does the whole Guts thing far better. We also had Stoutland, which gave it even more competition. It simply struggled to really set...

    Right before our ladder actually opens, here is a VR update! It only includes discussion of B+ and above ranks (and Dwebble) since the council wanted to make sure this gets out in time and we can provide explanations for each change. So here it is: Alolan Dugtrio -> A- With a great Speed tier...

    I assume the Validate feature will work for ZU during its time as OMotM, but otherwise there won't be anything available I believe.

    While this would obviously be fantastic, the PS teambuilder only supports official tiers, which ZU is not. Thus, it will not show up, sorry

    ZU has become Other Meta of the Month for May! Thank you all so much for voting and I'm looking forward to playing the ladder with you! To reply to this, I haven't tested Sawsbuck in quite a while and it could actually be quite interesting, but before the recent tier shift Sawsbuck suffered...
