Hello, going into NU's next stage, we're moving forward by suspect testing Sneasel.
Sneasel’s base 115 Speed puts it ahead of the majority of the metagame, and several of the Pokemon that would outpace it through means such as Choice Scarf, boosting moves, and naturally higher Speed stats are taken down by a powerful Ice Shard. Sneasel's STAB moves hit most of the Pokémon in the tier for at least neutral damage, and those that it cannot are easy to wear down, or at the very least detest losing their item to a Knock Off. Perhaps Sneasel’s best quality is its ability to pressure and pursuit trap the tier’s Ghost- and Psychic-types. The sheer number of Pokemon that are considered a liability or are completely unviable due to Sneasel’s presence in the tier speaks volumes about its effect on the metagame. For these reasons the NU Council has unanimously decided that Sneasel is worthy of a suspect test.
Sneasel will be allowed on the ladder during this suspect test.
The reqs will be 2700 COIL with a B value of 9.0 and a 70 game limit. This suspect period will last for 10 days, ending Tuesday, January 9th at 11:59 PM EDT.
Tagging the The Immortal for the ladder.
