Welcome to the UnderUsed's Official Forum Guide

This thread is a Central Hub for all newcomers and veterans that want to participate in this tier. This thread indicates the current UU Staff Members, the UU Council Members, and important Contributors, all of whom can assist you. Furthermore, this thread will cover all types of resources, link all current projects/tournaments, and will provide introductory access for players to properly participate in this tier. Further questions beyond should be directed to one of the Staff members/council members/contributors listed below.

Please familiarize yourself with our standards, as this will save everyone time and grief.​

The UU forum is currently moderated by the following Smogon Staff members:

- Sam [Tier Leader]
- dodmen [Tier Leader]
- Hikari [Tier Leader]
- IronBullet
- King UU
- Hogg


Any decisions we make regarding moderation actions are final.

The UU Council is currently filled by the following members: If you have any questions or concerns regarding tiering, feel free to contact them:

Our Community Contributors are here to help you! Here are a list of other important Contributors in the tier which can help answer your common questions:
- YABO (Community Contributor & UU Room Owner)
- LeoLancaster (Community Contributor & UU Room Owner)
- CoolStoryBrobat (UU Room Owner and PS Global Staff)
- GrilledClawitzer (Pre-Community Contributor)
- Christo. (Community Contributor, Council Member)
- Tony (Community Contributor & Council Member)
- Euphonos (Community Contributor)
- Shiba (Community Contributor)
- Pearl (C&C Mod, Community Contributor, Council Member)
- Manipulative (Community Contributor)
- Mazz (Former Project Moderator)


As for actual rules, all the rules that are applicable to the entire Smogon site also apply here. Additionally, take note of the following:

- We do things a little differently around here. Unlike what you're probably used to, tiering decisions are made pretty liberally in UU, so you will probably have strong feelings about it. Expressing your feelings regarding specific suspects in PM or in public is fine, as long as you do so in a calm and respectful manner. There is a posting guide written by Mazz listed below. Give it a read if you are new or need clarification of what constitutes as a high-quality post meant to contribute to the discussion.


- Do not make a new thread under any circumstance. Direct all new thread requests to moderators Hogg and King UU under this format: http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/underused-tournament-project-proposals-schedule.3575185/

- Stick to UU stuff.

- Don't be an idiot. Respect each other.


Pokemon Showdown UU Policies:
In our ongoing desire to view the PS UU Room and the UU Subforum as extensions of each other, activities on both the PS Simulator and the rest of Smogon reflect your status in the community as a whole.

Contributing to the PS UU room and encouraging the ongoing integration of new users to our subforum is noticed by all of the UU room Staff and UU Moderation Staff. Users that eventually become part of our room staff will see their contributions be mentioned in potential nominations for contributor badges! Furthermore, UU forum contributions can now count towards eligibility for room promotions! However, these are not intended as a replacement for contributions to the room itself. They are bonuses on top of room contribution.

In simple terms, contributing to UU in some of the non-tier badges (RMT, Tutor, etc) will count towards your UU promotion and towards tier-related badges such as Community Contributor. For more details, see below:

Note that in each category, the respective non-alumnus badges (Tutor, Contributor, Team Rater, Community Contributor) count as permanent fulfillment of their respective categories, assuming they were achieved due to primarily contributions to UU. These are the level of contributions we look for in users without the respective badges.
  • Tutoring: Receiving 2 tutor shoutouts from separate rounds in the course of four months.
  • C&C: Being an active member of the UU QC team and/or 6 UU analyses over the course of four months.
  • RMT: Completing 2 UU rates a week for ten weeks.
  • Tournaments: Hosting a successful UU tournament in the Tournaments forum section and/or helping out with the work behind the scenes for major tournaments such as UU Majors.
  • UnderUsed subforum contributions: Contributions to 2 forum projects each week for ten weeks, hosting a new forum project for one month, hosting an inherited forum project for two months and/or being on the VR and/or UU councils.
  • Policy: Contributions to UU room staff policy discussions (only applies to drivers, of course).
These are all guidelines rather than hard caps; quality and other subjective considerations (number of RMTs/analyses available, smaller amounts of contributions to several areas, etc) are taken into account. Also, it is only possible to fulfill each category once (e.g. a Tutor badge plus 2 extra positive evaluations only counts as fulfilling one category).

Future driver and up promotions will require some level of forum presence (fulfilling one category for driver, two for moderator).

To all new users, we highly recommend checking out the Guide listed below:
Introduction & Posting Guide - by Mazz
This is mainly in response to the influx of threads featuring non-viable Pokemon in UU (ie; Mightyena, Wigglytuff, etc.). The purpose of this post isn't to call anybody out for making these threads; Underused is a very balanced tier where lower-tiered Pokemon can find success. In fact, the moderators here, as well as our more veteran members, encourage people to find things in lower tiers that work in UU. It's great for diversity. The purpose of this guide is to assist the newer (and existing if need be) members see what exactly we're looking for in a quality post. Whether you're posting a new thread, replying to another member, or defending your position, a quality post should have some or all of these elements in them, as not only do they make you look like you know what you're talking about, but they strongly reinforce your argument.


The Basics
  • Lurking is never a bad idea if you're brand new to the competitive scene. Take some time to figure out how members are posting and how the tier operates before you dive in.
  • Generic 'if' statements will rarely contribute to a topic, unless the point is directly connected to the topic at hand. For example: "... if Jirachi falls to UU, I'll start using x on y."
  • Your post / reply should never be rude, overly aggressive, or malicious. Nobody likes being insulted, and by putting someone down, you're not doing your arguments any favour. You just look dumb, and if you maintain this pace, you'll notice a lot of your posts / threads being deleted, and you may even face action from a moderator. If you can keep your posts clean, concise, and manage to avoid stepping on people's toes, you'll gain some credibility around here, and members will be more willing to read your arguments and take them seriously.
  • Dry wit / sarcasm / humour on occasion is great, as it can liven up a post and help prove a point. However, don't be a clown. After a while, people will stop taking you seriously. If you want to be funny, check out Firebot, but this subforum is primarily aimed at discussion, reason, and focused arguments.
  • Before submitting a reply (or even a post) you need to take a step back and ask yourself some questions, "does what I said make sense?", "is my argument valid?", "why is my argument valid?", and "will other people support my argument?". If you can easily answer the first two questions with ease, chances are, you've got a good post. Making that same post a great one however requires the third and fourth questions to follow suit. If you cannot prove what you're trying to deliver to us, or if nobody is willing to support it, your ideas won't get very far.
  • Avoid obscenely massive posts. I've been guilt of this before too, and at the end of the day, not too many members are going to want to read a page-long essay as to why something should be or shouldn't be. Don't cop out on your post either, but avoid writing an article for something that would only need a few paragraphs. If you must throw a wall of text at us, put a TL;DR statement at the top of your post summarizing your ideas. It's polite, and can save those certain members some time.
  • Lastly, your reply / post / thread needs to be reasonable. While Underused can be a very flexible tier in terms of lower-tier viability, not everything has its use. Before making a statement that may later on be considered wild, do some research. Try that Pokemon, strategy, whatever it is you're trying to make a point of out on the ladder. Do some calculations. Avoid going into your ideas without being able to support them. Knowing what you're talking about will make your ideas more likely to become valid.
Supporting Your Post
  • Whenever need evidence to showcase your ideas, Damage Calculations are an excellent way to get a point across. These give the community hard numbers to look at, and can greatly emphasize your point. The common practice regarding damage calculations is to target the common Pokemon in the tier. So if you were arguing for an offensive Pokemon, use the heaviest walls in the tier to emphasize your point, and vice-versa if you're arguing for a defensive Pokemon.
  • Battle Logs are a solid way to prove the effectiveness of cores, strategies, or individual moves / items on a Pokemon, as they're recordings of those things in action. If posting these, try to provide more than one, as the more evidence you can stack up to support an argument, the better. Don't go nuts with it however. Another common courtesy to consider is to indicate the specific turns when the topic in focus takes place, and should be a must for longer battles.
  • Logic and credibility, are huge. If what you're saying makes sense, and you're known for being sensible, your post will immediately gain traction. Having these behind a post, specifically logic, will inevitably make supporting an argument easier, as the post and evidence won't contradict each other.
We hope you enjoy your time with us and we hope you're ready to tackle the vicious world of our subforum!

If you have any additional questions, direct them here.

That is all.

Resources - A current list of up-do-date resources designed to help you improve and socially participate - All of these threads are run and maintained by the UU Moderation Staff; please contact them for any questions or concerns.

Pokemon Showdown Chatroom
Click on the Underused Room to join our official discussion room for the Underused tier. A lot of detailed discussion and friendly/competitive matches take place here. It is heavily recommended that all users interested in Underused come here and join in on the discussions.

Sun & Moon Discussion Thread: UU Alpha Released!
Since OU just got its first batch of usage stats, we effectively can move past the pre-alpha stage and into our SM UU Alpha until Beta becomes available. For those of you that were worried about our potential lack of diversity, fear not!

UnderUsed Usage Statistics
The usage statistics show what's currently being used in Underused and how common it appears. A staple when teambuilding. Also shows playstyles and common movesets.

ORAS UU Council/Tiering Info
This thread is currently for record keeping only. It is the easiest way to find out who the members of the Underused Council were in the past, as well as their personal decisions behind the decisions to ban or keep Pokemon previously retested in Underused. We don't currently do things like this anymore, but it is interesting to see how previous decisions have influenced our tier - step into the UU time machine!

ORAS UU Tournament/Project Proposals & Schedules
This thread is meant to assist users that are interested in hosting a tour or running a project. All proposals need to follow the guidelines listed in this thread in order to be looked at. If you're interested in substantially contributing to the UU sub-forum, this is a good place to start.

ORAS Viability Ranking Thread
This thread collects the experience of the entire Underused community and transforms it into a list of most threatening Pokemon to least threatening. Another excellent teambuilding resource.

ORAS UU C&C Subforum
The Corrections & Contributions hub for 6th Gen UU Analyses to be posted on Smogon can be found here. Insight and knowledge of Pokemon is greatly appreciated for helping with in-progress analyses. Come lend a hand, or write your own!

ORAS UU NP Thread - Stage 8: I Got The Keys
The main discussion thread regarding the Underused tier as a whole, with a vast degree of fundamental topics at hand. Tier shifts and suspect tests are commonly discussed here. This thread is taken rather seriously, and it is best that you check out our posting guide below before making any sort of post.

Simple Questions Thread
If you have a simple or complicated Underused question in need of answer, provided it does not pertain to tiering (example: asking to retest something) or requesting authority positions (example: asking for voice in the PS! Underused Room or half-op on IRC), ask it here!

Speed Tiers Project - run by CoolStoryBrobat
This thread will be a quick-access Speed list of all Pokemon in the UU Metagame (that includes any in RU and even NU who happen to have analyses) based on the Speed stats of their sets. If you want to Speed creep something, use this thread as a reference on what you need to creep, you creeper.

Sample Teams Thread
The purpose of this thread is to archive successful ORAS UU teams, intended to help new players get acclimated to the metagame and different playstyles. The subtle differences in each tier can make UU seem overwhelming, even to seasoned veterans of other tiers. Here, you can post your own team for archiving for new UU players to use.

UU Old Gens Hub Resource
This thread contains resources for the UnderUsed tiers of older generations - Black and White UU, Diamond/Pearl/Platinum UU, and Advance UU (or Generation 3 UU). This thread will also serve as a place to hold discussion about the older generations of UU. Each post contains Viability Rankings, sample teams, and a list of mechanics of the generation that is different from ORAS. Feel free to post your thoughts on a particular aspect of a generation, successful cores, underrated Pokemon, teams you want feedback on, and anything else related to old gens UU. We hope to bring these metagames more exposure.

ORAS UnderUsed Teambuilding Compendium - run by Shiba, NV, LeoLancaster
This is a community-based project that helps players see what Pokemon are and aren't viable in the current metagame, what their roles are, as well as finding niches for less-common Pokemon.

Underused Cores Thread - v4 run by Euphonos
The purpose of this thread is for the community to post and discuss various cores that work well in the metagame. All types of cores are welcome in this thread as long as you have proof to back up that they work.

Creative/Underrated Sets Thread - run by @Cyndequil.
A thread dedicated to creative or underrated sets that have a viable niche against a decent portion of the metagame. Be sure to carefully read the rules before posting a set; it's very easy to confuse a gimmick with a creative set. Contributions to this thread are appreciate, although the standards are very high. Feel free to consult Cyndequil. or the moderation team to see if a set is worth posting.

Global Smogon Rules
The boring part of the forum, but these rules, and knowing who not to provoke, are a safe bet to becoming a positive presence on the subforums.



Tournaments - A current list of ongoing official Underused Tournaments - unofficial tournaments will not be listed here, and instead will be listed here, along with the request forms.
Underused Hall of Fame
Our official Hall of Fame list. Do your best to join the list of elites!

Old projects or projects that have recently ended will NOT be listed here.

The Underused Master Chef Project - run by Euphonos
This is a team building competition where you have to showcase your team building knowledge and skills after you have participated in numerous projects in the Underused Subforum, such as Matchmaking, Next Best Thing, and Iron Chef. This competition contains ten cycles good for one week each, and each cycle contains a mystery box inspired after certain Underused Projects. The team builder who have accumulated the most points after ten cycles will be declared as the first ever MasterChef!

UnderUsed Matchmaking of the Week - run by NV
Every week, NV will nominate a Pokemon for discussion of potential partners and submissions. In that week, you will have the chance to submit any good partners for that chosen Pokemon, and after the course of the week he will choose the best partner(s) for that chosen Pokemon and put it into the archive. People that manage to get into the archive multiple times with good submissions will be let into the Hall of Fame.

Underused Teambuilding Workshop - run by LeoLancaster and Eyan
Experienced members of UU have noticed that a good chunk of newer players do not know how to effectively team build or have no access to good teams to get started with. In an effort to rectify that, veterans have joined forces to host this ongoing teambuilding workshop. Here users can participate in different workshops and requests cores that they would like us to build a team around. The goal is for the user to see our thinking processes and get ideas on how to build their own teams in the future.

UU's: What's His Last? v2 - run by LeoLancaster
A long time ago, back when DPP was the current gen, and there was no team preview, the above question was often asked. You had to be prepared for anything in that last slot and use your deductive teambuilding skills to figure out just what your opponent was saving in the back. Still today, we can use these skills to better build our own teams. When building, there will be times when you have 5 perfect Pokemon. Mons that fit together so well that you just can't seem to pick a final Pokemon. Or sometimes you have a crippling weakness to a major threat and can't think of a Pokemon that will cover it that fits the team. This project aims to let the community figure out what the best last Pokemon would be for a given team of 5.

UU Victim of the Week - run by LeoLancaster
Every generation is different and the metagame is constantly changing. However there's always been and always will be one constant: Threats. Whether it be a defensive threat or an offensive threats, any competent competitive Pokemon player should have some knowledge on how to handle common, top-tier threats. That's where you guys as a community come in. This project aims to gather some of the common top-tier threats in the current metagame and find Pokemon that can either check or counter the respective 'mon.

UU Player of the Week - run by Manipulative
Hello, and welcome to UU's Player of the Week, where I (Manipulative) interview
some of Smogon's most accomplished and well known players in the tier to give
some insight on who they are and their views on certain aspects of the metagame.
If there's someone you want to see interviewed, shoot me a PM!

The UU Mafia - run by choolio
The notorious Pokemon Mafia has returned to the UU forums to issue another challenge! The bosses from every major Pokemon crime syndicate have come together in search of a new don. To find a trainer worthy of leading the Mafia, they have issued a formidable challenge: Defeat all 5 Mafia bosses, and you will become the new don, one of the most powerful and influential people in the Pokemon world. Whoever holds the title of don at the time the challenge ends will be declared the victor. This challenge will test your battling skill, teambuilding prowess, and metagame knowledge against some of the best UU battlers out there. Do you have what it takes to defeat the Mafia?

UU Teambuilding Lab - run by Amaroq
Hello, everyone. I'm Amaroq. Throughout my time in UU, I have noticed that many newer players do not know how to build teams effectively or have no access to good teams to get started with. In an effort to rectify that, I have joined forces with several experienced UU players to host the UnderUsed Teambuilding Lab. Here users can post Pokemon sets / cores that they would like the Lab staff to build a team around and the Lab staff can reply with their team and the team building process we used so the requester can see our thought processes and better develop their ability to build their own teams in the future.

This means the following Pokemon are banned for UU Alpha. Please take note of the following:
  1. Pokemon that were OU/Ubers in ORAS will be unedited
  2. New Pokemon that were in lower tier in ORAS and are now OU will be Bolded
  3. New Pokemon will be Italicized.
  4. This list is ordered by usage, which means stuff like Hippowdon/Tyranitar might join us. By the same logic, we might lose a lot of our new toys as well. Use them while you can!
