Hikari and Sam are the current tier leaders, taking the helm from kokoloko and Calloflochie after their recent departure from leadership. Both are long time players of the UnderUsed tier and were entrusted with tier leadership, assuring that suspect tests run smoothly, productive, conducive posts are being created within threads in the UU subforum, and assuring the metagame remains balanced.


dodmen, IronBullet, King UU, and Meru

They ensure quality posting environment for other posters by cleaning and keeping the forum organized, as well as promoting high quality discussion throughout the subforum.

Past Leadership


JabbaTheGriffin was the UU man for a long time. He led DPP UU for about half of its existence and was a driving force in making the tier one of the best and most balanced in Smogon history. When the 5th Generation rolled around, he kicked off BW UU and led the tier until December 2012, when he handed it to kokoloko. He still contributes to the UU tier, helping to shape the tier with his position on the UU Senate.


kokoloko is a former UU tier leader who started contributing to BW UU around January 2012, and quickly rose in Smogon leadership. He was the UU Quality Control leader for nearly two years and lead the ongoing task of putting quality analyses on the Smogon website. Until his promotion to tier leader, he was the leader of the UU Senate, the council that ensured the metagame stayed balanced. As the leader, kokoloko oversaw everything UU. He ensured the Senate ran properly, made sure the forum posts were appropriate and promoted discussion, and lead the UU C&C team.


RT. was a long time UU player and had been a part of the tier since 2009. Because of his experience in the UU tier, he was promoted to the rank of moderator in October 2012 in both the UU metagame subforum and the UU C&C subforum. Not only did he assist kokoloko in moderating the subforum and managing analysis work, he was also the Senate leader. As the Senate leader he lead the council that controlled tiering in UU; he helped to decide future suspects and Senate qualifications.

Ace Emerald

Ace Emerald's dedication to the tier and community saw him promoted to moderator in a very short ten months. He assisted kokoloko and RT. in moderating the forums, guiding discussions and ensuring they stayed productive and on topic.
