Have you ever wanted to use Ubers in Tier Shift? Have lower tiered Pokemon face off against the likes of Arceus and Groudon? Is regular Tier Shift not extreme enough for you? Then EXTREME Tier Shift (or ETS) may be the tier you're looking for!
This metagame takes the standard Ubers format but adds one simple rule - all Tier Shift boosts are doubled! If you are unfamiliar with the Tier Shift metagame, here are the rules:
- Pokemon in UU and BL2 get a boost of 10 in each stat.
- Pokemon in RU and BL3 get a boost of 20 in each stat.
- Pokemon in NU and BL4 get a boost of 30 in each stat.
- Pokemon in PU and below get a boost of 40 in each stat.
- Mega Pokemon get the boost from the Tier they are in.

Q: How do boosts apply to Mega Pokemon?
A: The boosts apply to the tier where the mega form is ranked. Gyarados holding a mega stone will receive OU boosts (+0) but Gyarados not holding a stone receives UU boosts (+10).
Q: What about NFE Pokemon?
A: NFEs that are ranked in a tier (Gligar is in UU, Fletchinder is in RU) receive the boosts associated with that tier. Any NFEs that are unranked receive the boosts from PU.
Q: What about Pokemon in the BL tiers?
A: They receive boosts associated with the nearest tier above them. So anything in the BL tier receives boosts from OU, anything in the BL2 tier receives boosts from UU, etc.
Q: What about tiered abilities, such as Drizzle and Drought?
A: Similarly to mega stones, tiered abilities affect the Pokemon's boosts depending on where its ranked. Politoed with Drizzle (a BL ability) receives OU boosts (+0) but Politoed with another ability receives PU boosts (+40).
