"We are the children of the blood diamonds."
Greetings, fellow UU folks! After a period of relative stability, we're now back at it with some juicy tier shifts. I've included all of the changes that our tier underwent with the release of June's usage stats above, so you don't need to worry about doing that much browsing to know the hottest news. With the release of Drake's newest, critically acclaimed album (not LOL), it seems like UU's favorite scorpion has been a little too overplayed up there. Yikes! Aside from that, we've received Amoonguss back, as well as two new toys to mess around with in Mega Diancie and Mega Venusaur. Whether or not they'll pan out to be too much for us to handle is something that only time can tell, really. Mamoswine's return and Serperior leaving are also two changes that are guaranteed to shake up our metagame to a reasonable extent, even if I can't quite explain the latter still.
Due to the fact that UU Open is currently undergoing, there is going to be some urgency regarding potential decisions to quick ban some of the more questionable new drops (it should be obvious which Pokemon I'm referring to here, but Diancie really is a big question mark at the current moment), so expect to hear back from us soon if we do decide to act on it through a council vote. Aside from that, we'll be actively monitoring the tier in order to see if it's going to be necessary to do anything else in the near future. That aside, feel free to use this thread to share your thoughts on anything related to the current SM UU metagame, including opinions regarding potentially broken Pokemon, underrated Pokemon, rejoicing the fact that our favorite mushroom is finally back to chip some more sneaky Scizor and all other sorts of things that come to your mind. Happy posting!
