Project The Top 10 Titans of the 1v1 Metagame (Voting for #3 Titan)

I am giving you guys an extension of 4 days to nominate some more Pokemon you feel were genuinely influential in 1v1 in this thread, so go berserk... The nomination stage will finally close on the 7th of September.

Alakazam locked my 500th post, so like this post instead

And don't correct others' nomination please; this is not the place for that. Use this thread only to nominate AND NOTHING ELSE.....


Also, those who nominated and couldn't complete it / haven't started working on it, your nomination still stands. You can still finish your reservation

Sorry for the delay, but here we are, with the closure of phase 1 of the Top 10 titans, the nominations phase, and the commencement of phase 2 - the voting phase. In this phase, anyone can vote for the Pokemon they think was most influential throughout (or for a significant amount of time in) the meta. Just reply with one-word posts on which you think has been the most influential Pokemon throughout the entirety of the SM/USM 1v1 metagame. For 10 cycles, each cycle will last 4 days to vote for the most influential Pokemon (or "Titan") of the metagame, and this week, we will be voting for the #1 spot. Only vote for the Pokemon present in the list presented below, or your vote will be discounted, and your votes might be ignored from future votes.

This contains the list of nominated Pokemon (and also some Pokemon which I included myself, since the number of nominated Pokemon were too small to give much choice down the order):



P.S. : On a lighter-but-real note, you can vote for Garchomp by posting Chomper and Primarina by posting "Don't use Aqua Jet"!

I know Greninja is barely gonna get any votes, and it's for the right reasons. It has not been broken or on the spotlight at any point, neither did it have any controversial suspect tests or ban proposals. Despite that, it has consistently stayed near the top of usage stats. Its versatility in the sets it can run, with each one being very good in itself, give it a consistent dominance over the metagame, which is enough for me to have my vote.

Marshadow, clearly. When it was allowed it was a god. It dismantled setup, played hyperoffense, beat stall, every set was good, even niche ones like Roseli.

also Wrath of Alakazam next time I think you should consider not allowing banned Pokemon. Their impact is negligible at the end of a generation. Yeah they were a titan but unless they introduced an entire playstyle (like Double Dance Tapu Koko) then the current metagame isn't really being affected by them.

edit: I'm changing my vote to pre-rough skin fix Pyukumuku

Honestly id argue the same thing but for the opposite reason. Banned pokemon shouldnt be included in this because they almost automatically certify as a Titan, as they literally changed the meta so much that they had to be removed because of it.
