Is it really called PU because the Mons in PU stink in any other meta?
The reason why it's still in PU (as far as I know) is because it's really slow and kind of frail. It also has no reliable recovery. Zebstrika outclasses it as an Electric typeI haven't played much PU yet, but it's been a fun one to start getting into. Seeing Arbok actually viable is a great thing.
(Although I'm still stunned to see Luxray in PU. That thing is a monster with Guts boosted Facades, Wild Charges and Crunches. It's a scary threat if you give it a scarf and I've had it wreck OU teams time and again....)
PU has not, does not, and and will not ever stand for anything, please stop :(
- PU will be the name given to the tier for the remainder of this generation. Whether or not we rename it will be a new discussion and decision at the next generation. The name is not up for debate at this time
I just wanted to say that, semantically, no name works as everything you could come up for, i.e. "pitfully", will still be above "never". That's why renaming it is a discussion better left for VII gen, as changing the name of two tiers midgen is simply noy an option.Even though it doesn't stand for anything, I've always thought it could stand for Poorly Used.
Pathetically/Pitifully Used works too.
