We have our own subforum now! Let's celebrate with something nobody asked for- an early and very unofficial LGPE RU, made from the usage stats of a single tournament. Anything above 3.406% usage is considered UU and therefore prohibited. We'll switch to more up-to-date usage stats or other tiering metrics when the opportunity arises.

This tier seems quite underpowered overall, with a few distinct outliers- the two Mega Evolutions, Alolan Raichu, and Omastar especially stand out as massive threats that are quite out of place. We'll see if any of them need tiering action soon enough. It does seem quite fun though aside from that, with an interesting mix of glass cannons and bulky tanks of various typings. Speed tiers are significantly lower overall, with very few Pokemon holding Speed stats over 100.
