honestly not surprised about the top 5 in every tier. Magmortar for RU!

Honestly i prefer umbreon over chansey, but an eviolite boost may be too tempting to pass up.

Aw fuck something just occurred to me.

Keldeo is getting released about a week before tier shifts. It'll almost certainly not be able to get enough usage to reach OU in such a short time. Keldeo's probably gonna go to UU until the next tier shift in three months.

Shit that's terrifying.
Shaymin-S scored #19 the month it was released and, if I recall correctly, had less than a week for that.

No worries! Keldeo won't be legal in PO until July 1. Same with the Therian and Kyurem formes.

And when July 1 *does* come around, all of these pokemon will default to OU (Keldeo based on its DW OU usage, the rest based on their Incarnate forme usage--and I believe we should playtest Thundurus-T before banning it).

It demonstrates a fundamental problem with Smogon that people would regard it as a "playtest" and as "before" banning it as opposed to simply allowing a new Pokemon and expecting it to stay allowed, never considering the possibility of banning it until proven otherwise.

Hold the phone there, Cheech.

First off, all I was saying was exactly what you're saying--that it should have a shot in OU before being banished to Ubers. Sorry if my wording was poor.

Secondly, I just run the server and publish the stats. I don't make tiering decisions. Hell, I don't even ladder. Taking *anything* I say as representative of what the Smogon community feels is always going to be a mistake.
