Good eye, sandz. Added!

Perfect Cell, that's an awesome resource, but it's better off in OI where Frontier discussion belongs, so I've moved it there ^.^

Added the viability rankings, as well as speed tiers and threat lists (how were they not on here ?_?), plus a few other selections like the DPP Warstory Archive, RBY Mechanical Differences, and some community projects.

I'd rather the archive be concise than a super huge pile of links, but I would like to see some more stuff added. I'll add to it as I think of things, but feel free to make more noms~

Finally added BW OU stuff to this. Should I add resources to other metas (Ubers, lower tiers, Doubles, LC) as well? I'd rather have this be a very concise resource that's easy for new players to navigate at a glance, but it seems a shame to leave out so much great info. I might just totally revamp this to spruce it up, so I'm open to suggestions here :3

Should probably note that PO has better RBY support than NBS does these days, and of course a much bigger player base. (NBS has some minor improper mechanics involving Mimic but also the wrong type chart regarding Bug vs. Ghost.)

It's also the only reliable GSC simulator as of now. (Proper mechanics and no freezes - GSC has some Pursuit-related freezes that I cannot remember from the top of my head)

Depends on the generation and tier. I think any Uber tier is good to add. For lower tiers, most seem niche besides DPP and BW. I wouldn't bother with anything else yet unless they're requested.
