Sugar, Spice and One for All
Tier Shift has been around for ages now as you all know, but last gen we hit a bit of a hiccup: nobody was terribly interested in it due to same-y qualities to the normal OU metagame. This gen, I've done something that does a pretty good job of fixing that:
Mechanic: Pokemon get a +10 boost to each stat excluding HP per tier below OU they are in. UU gets +10, RU +20, NU +30, and PU +40.
Clauses: Standard OU Clauses
Bans: OU Banlist + Damp Rock, Deep Sea Tooth, Drought, Eviolite, Heat Rock.
Terrakion with +10 boosts is a direct improvement for the already viable powerhouse. 139 attack backed by 118 speed isn't something to scoff at.
Presumably Butterfree will be PU, bringing it to 60/85/90/130/120/110 stats. To boot, it has Tinted Lens, Sleep Powder, and Quiver Dance. SR weakness will still hold it back some but good lord this thing looks like a nightmare for stall.
The tapu's all keep their niches pretty well due to their exclusive abilities. Terrains are honestly extremely useful, perhaps moreso even in Tier Shift.
Q: What about BLs?
A: BLs are counted as the tier above them. So, BL gets no boosts, BL2 gets +10, etc. Logic is that why would they get boosts for the tier they can't be in?
Q: What happens when a stat goes over 255?
A: It caps at 255 base, since that's the highest possible stat.
Q: What do untiered NFE / LC pokemon get?
A: +40 as well, as they are still classed as PU
Q: How do megas work?
A: As soon as a pokemon holds it's megastone, it is the tier of the mega. For example: Audino without Audinite gets PU boosts, but as soon as it holds Audinite it is classed as UU
Q: Is there an easy way to see a pokemon's adjusted stats?
A: Why yes there is! Just use the command /ts (pokemon) and it will show you the new stats!
