grubbing in the ashes
UU is suspecting Conkeldurr. Despite its low Speed, Conkeldurr is a behemoth, with decent bulk and an incredible Attack further boosted by Guts Flame Orb. With few viable Ghost-type Pokemon in the tier, Conkeldurr is free to spam the incredibly potent duo of Drain Punch and Facade, which at worst 2HKO the vast majority of the tier. Those few Pokemon that might consider switching into these attacks almost universally fear Knock Off, and with powerful priority to mitigate its poor Speed and the ability to run moves such as Bulk Up to further punch through bulky teams, Conkeldurr has managed to surpass such threats as Primarina and Xurkitree to become the premier wallbreaker in UU.
As was previously discussed, this suspect test will be conducted via a public suspect. Conkeldurr will not be allowed during this test.
The suspect test will have an N value of 20 and a COIL requirement of 2650. In addition, there will be a game limit of 90 games. It will last for two weeks.
You can calculate the number of games required using this formula:
Also, this wasn't announced in the last thread, but as we are moving away from the previous tiering system, UU no longer requires a rotating council. Therefore, we have moved Amaroq, TDK, Christo and SmashBrosBrawl to full council. In addition, Aquadext has stepped down from the UU council. The current council is as follows:
