i personally think its the stupidest thing ever cause most of them are based on popularity and how simple they are to use, and those people that use things like a lv 100 ratacate are shunned i call BS whats your opinion on this

Tiers should exist, but there should be fewer of them. The game effectively has a tier system already. You can't use certain legendaries in battle facilities. Other than that, everything should be fair game. When you play a kid on the streets, there is no 'Oh, let's do an UU battle!'. That's not how the games are played outside of Pokémon Online and the like.

Go to Gamestop, buy a Steam card, and use it to purchase Ys Origin. You won't be disappointed.

I'm not a competitive player, but all these "tires don exits" claims are clearly done by people who aren't thinking about what they're saying. Especially in a game where stats are numerical and concrete - and fully-evolved Pokémon absolutely do not have equal stat distributions.

Raticate's Attack is basically average, and all its other stats except its Speed below average - and even its Speed isn't exactly super-awesome. That's why he's low-tier. And there's nothing you can do to mitigate that. You can EV train him, sure... but someone could take a Pokémon with better stats and EV train it, too.

Now, you might claim stats aren't everything. This is true! But... stats aren't nothing, either. What makes Raticate worthy of being in higher tiers? ("I like him" is not a valid answer.)

It's your choice to play however you want. Smogon is a community plays how they want to play and you can't really do anything about it.

Outside of Smogon, tiers still affect you because you know how often they're used, and by extension, how good they are.

Look, unless you really, really want to use Moody, Evasion, or OHKO moves, there is a tier where you can use every Pokémon that you want to use, regardless of what they are. It is called Ubers. Use it.
