    Toucannon C- > C+ Losing Archeops meant many things for the meta, and one of them is allowing Toucannon to strive easier. Another meta change that helped it out was Magmortar’s ban which helped grass types like Ferroseed and Tangela gain usage. I believe it should be ranked for its niche in web...

    Entei A+ > S: Agree Most of Entei’s switch ins either hate being burnt, or have little to no recovery. Extreme Speed hits like a steamroller and excels at revenge killing. It’s only issues are it’s vulnerability to rocks, and a lack of options for water types besides Grassium-Z (If you really...

    Mega-Slowbro A > A-: Agree There are a lot of things that make Mega-Bro more uncomfortable. Hydreigon, Rotom-Mow, Latias, Toxic, Togekiss, Mega-Manectric, Serperior, etc. Being weak to U-Turn and Volt Switch is quite horrific when you take the fact that a large portion of the tier has...

    Minior C- > D: Agree There’s nothing Minior really accomplishes as of now. Many fire types (except Incineroar) have lost viability and/or usage due to the abundance of sand and Incineroar. Mons that Minior used to set up on like Xatu, Altaria, and Scyther aren’t as viable anymore. Shields down...

    Scolipede C- > C/C+ I already said this twice. It’s an under appreciated threat that can be an effective sweeper. Players are mostly prepared for Hawlucha with mons like Clefable, and Zapdos to counter it out. But Lucha beats both (except for Defensive Zapdos) with Poison Jab. Pex is declining...

    Usage-Based Tier Update for April 2018

    Okay. Let’s talk about the changes Jirachi BL > OU It’s a solid answer to Lele and Serene Grace Iron Head is still a bitch so that was expected. Mienshao UU > RU Base 125 Atk with Reckless HJK and U-Turn. Thanks but this thing belongs in BL2. Bruxish RU > NU Potentially broken for NU due to...

    I agree with all of these except for Noctowl. Noctowl is ranked for its Specs set, not defog. It gained viability after it got Hurricane which it can use in conjunction with Tinted Lens making it a niche wallbreaker. So I’d say keep it where it it.

    Scolipede C- > C/C+ I have already said that it should rise and I was surprised it didn’t get much support. I’ll explain why again. Scolipede has the potential to sweep entire teams on its own that lack Tornadus-T, Zapdos, or Mega-Pinsir thanks to having a low-key broken ability (Speed Boost). I...

    Serperior A+ > A: Agree Ever since this thing came to be, many counters and checks to it have arose higher in usage and viability such as A-Muk, Amoonguss, Moltres, Gengar, etc. it’s still threatening with its Z-Hyper Beam set or Sub-Seed set with a good speed tier. Klefki A- > B+: Agree It’s...

    Okay first off, C- to A-/A is way to high of a shift. Secondly, once Golisopod is locked into First Impression then they get a free opportunity to setup, place down hazards, gain momentum, and even remove your hazards. It is also really slow and let’s in a common array of attackers like...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Definitely don’t unrank Aggron. Choice Band Head Smash basically OHKOs/2HKOs everything in the tier that doesn’t resist it and is bulky. It only got better with Emboar and Virizion being absent in NU so unranking it makes no sense. Tauros is able to outspeed and check most offensive threats...

    Breloom A > A+ Agree Breloom is one of those threats that can pick off of its own counters. It is able to run Rock Tomb for flying types, Natural Gift for Amoonguss and Mega-Altaria. The only thing that would potentially drive it away from A tier is the four move syndrome (Which btw is the same...

    Okay before I start explaining why Avalugg is irrelevant, I want to say you didn’t do a bad job explaining your reasonings for it being a potential threat. But you didn’t explain it’s massive drawbacks besides being pressured by special attackers like. -It’s terrible defensive typing -Has to...

    Tapu Koko A+ > S- Agree Honestly when the S- ranking became a thing, I was surprised Koko didn’t become a part of it. It defies offense as a whole being apart of many offensive cores, mainly Koko/Lucha and Koko/Kyurem cores. It can run a plethora of sets like Specs, Scarf, Screens, Shuca, Z-Wild...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Incineroar C+ to B-/B I think it is about time for Emboar to leave the tier but it is also time for Incineroar to potentially shine. It’s a great Delphox, Sneasel, Klinklang, and Vaniluxe. It can Choice between a bulky pivot or a wallbreaker with the Assault Vest or Incinium-Z and losing a mon...

    Amoonguss A > A+ Agree: I think what could’ve backed Amoonguss down a long time ago would’ve been passivability. But Spore is a borderline broken move all by its self and forces the opponent to swap their mon out and try to force the sleep clause. The only things that really swap into it are...

    USUM UU Viability Ranking Thread V2

    I feel like B-/B is way too much for it as it has a relatively small niche in the meta. It’s main issue is the influx of M-Aggron being a major part in the meta. I do agree that it does well tearing apart defensive cores and being and offensive check to Breloom and Azumarill is neat and all, but...

    NP: NU Stage 6 - Fn Pig (Emboar banned from NU)

    There is no doubt about it, Emboar is an amazing wallbreaker/cleaner. But I feel it does that job “too” amazing. Let’s start with its ability Reckless. STAB Reckless boosted Flare Blitz, Reckless boosted Wild Charge to hit the only things that resist its STAB combination besides Delphox and...

    USUM NU Viability Rankings

    Typhlosion B- to C+/C While Specs Eruption is hard to switch in if you don’t have a bulky Fire, Rock, or Water, I don’t think it’s enough to warrant it this high. It’s hard to splash on teams due to it being highly dependent on hazard removal and very vulnerable to any form of chip damage...
