Idea and thread stolen from myself last generation, idea for VR concept as a whole stolen from PK Gaming

Hello everyone and welcome to the Post-HOME Viability List!

We are not yet ready to have the fully-fledged viability rankings up with so many developments happening so quickly, including potential bans. With this said, there is demand for a viability list that people can use as a threat list to use to weigh their options for teambuilding purposes.

Given this, we have decided to come up with a list of viable Pokemon given our initial experience in the metagame. It is a rough list and there will likely be changes to it, but we will be leaving it locked because this is more of a resource and not a discussion thread. And since I love you all so much, we were able to split it roughly into high-medium-low for those wondering what's hot and what's not!

I would expect a formal VR sometime next week. If you have questions, please ask them here rather than just PMing me. If you wish to discuss, feel free to do so in the metagame discussion or the appropriate Pokemon thread. Finally, please note everything is currently in Pokedex order.
