Ruby/Sapphire remakes will be part of 6th gen on 3DS. If not, I'll close my account.

People still think the tiers are rank systems? Silly smogons... Its there to determine how much people use them.

More so, crown raikou can school some OU pokes without an issue. It all depends on his or her trainer

Higher speed, and Volt Absorb.

Though Raikou gets the latter from Dream World, but it's unreleased, and it won't be able to use any of its event moves with Volt Absorb.

That extra speed gives Jolteon the edge over powerful threats like Starmie, Tornadus, Alakazam etc.


But Raikou beats Tornadus and ties with Starmie in speed...


Well I meant Tornadus-T, and speed ties are risky. (Jolteon even outspeeds Weaville if need arises). Also I forgot to mention Volt Absorb, another reason.

Personally I prefer to use Electrode. The only faster Pokemons faster than him are Deoxys and Ninjask.

While I prefer Raikou, with its CM set up, Jolteon is a better Pokemon.

Jolteon is a fox, and Raikou is a cat.
