I honestly don't get how this is bad. You let those who are good have more weighting on how Pokemon are used. You let people who are bad have a lower weight on how they were used. It's logical and makes sense.

I see the logic in this. In fighting games the more skilled/better player can relate more to the tiers (understanding of tiers) than noobs and casual players. So why not use it pokemon. Noobs can yell X is better then Y because they have trouble with X. But without understanding the full potential of Y is it really Y< X?
