SS RU Role Compendium
:ss/bewear: :ss/salazzle: :ss/vileplume:

The idea of this thread is to provide a visual list of which Pokémon do what in the SS RU metagame. This will help new and experienced players alike in finding Pokémon that fit their teams when looking for specific roles, as well as help players build more diverse teams by not always using the same Pokémon to fill the same role.

Below, we have the various roles an SS RU team might want a Pokémon to fill. For each of these roles is a list of Pokémon which can fulfill that role; all of the Pokémon listed can work at least somewhat viably as a performer of the role, as such they have been ranked in no particular order - however, there is a bar that separates Pokemon in the C+ rank or below as well as unranked, but useable Pokemon on the Viability Rankings from the rest. If there is a Pokémon which is not listed which can perform well in a certain role, please feel free to post about it, and we may add it. However, this thread is not meant to be a place for discussion about the viability of Pokémon in general, unless a Pokémon's placement is drastically off - we have a Metagame Discussion Thread and Viability Rankings for that.​
