i base my opinion on the actually power of the pokemon not popularity.


I'm not sure where you're going with this. Are you trying to say that the Pokémon in OU are only there because they are popular? That's not even remotely accurate. They are in OU because they are over used. They are over used because they are powerful or extremely useful. The two go hand in hand.

you're mostly correct, but tiers are structured based on usage statistics, not BST totals

Check that smogon topic. He's a noob (or a troll) who refuses to listen to any logic. He thinks taking advice from sets must mean you can't make your own decisions in battle and his post resorts to just "you can't listen to people type". No use in arguing with this troll.

that man who called me a troll works for smogon and he said it's based on popularity.
he'd tried to give me a cop out that it's only affected by good players using them.

the problem with that logic is that you cannot tell how good a player is without knowing how good his pokemon is.

any fool can win with op pokemon that doesn't proove your a good player if you win using pokemon that are op

i'll compare this metaknight in brawl.
in a normal brawl i lose 6/10 matches.
i'm not very good.
but when i use metaknight i win EVERY TIME.

by his logic because i did well i'm a good player. when in reality i only did well because i used something udderly broken.

by the way if i'm troll explain why i haven't been moderated for it.
i'll even mark my self to prove someone marked me. and i won't get moderated.

why because the text book definition of trolling is the person is trying to provoke you.
not someone disagree with you.
by your logic people like therian rules are trolls.
because no one is allowed to disobey all mighty smogon god.

This guy is just trolling. He's making ridiculously ignorant assumptions and then gets mad when people do the same to him. He has no logic and just plugs his ears in like a child.
No, I'm not a smogonite, and it's called WEIGHTED STATS but this guy is too ignorant/too much of a troll to care.

ANY legendary is too much for OU (Sans rotom and Celebi). Look at jiracheap. The typing Psychic/Steel gives her only 2 weaknesses. she also has an amazing moveset, she's the bane of OU players.

ANY legendary? Even Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mew, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, the Regis, the Latis, the Pixies, Heatran, Regigigas, Shaymin, Cresselia, Victini Cobalion, Virizion, Tornadus, Kyurem and Meloetta?

And Rotom's not a legendary.
