The Sky Battle Meta Game!!!

#1All-icePosted 9/20/2013 1:08:51 PM
Obviously, I won't be including Ubers.

Ubers in this tier are: Arceus Flying/Ho-ho/Lugia/Giritina-O/Sky Form Shaymin

Based on Smogon, tiers get reset each gen, but these guys just have way too many Base Stats to be put into this tier. Also Thundurus-I/Tornadus-I/T maybe ban again.

I'm going to listing the top 1% in this tier with a brief description as what to expect from them :

Skarmory:Will be the BEST defensive Wall in this tier. No ifs or butts. He'll also be able to set up Rocks quite easily. Roost/WhirlWind will be abused.

Cresselia:While she doesn't pack much offense, she will be a monster of a Defense or Special Defense Wall. Skarmory paired with her will be a nightmare.

Mega-Charizard: The only only to have Permanent weather in this tier. Fire Blasts will hurt a huge amount of the Pokemon in this tier. He'll also make Cresselia abuse Moonlight :D

Dragonite: Multiscale makes him a must to use. With only a handful of Steel/Fairies types in this tier, he'll dominate the skys.

Salamence: Once the Steels/Fairies are gone he'll have fun sweeping the opponent. He can also be an amazing wall breaker(Not many Walls in this tier)

Bronzong: While my favorite Trick Roomer got nerfed, he'll find his home in this tier. Being able to take the Dragon Spammers will be his priority. He'll also be able to set up Stealth Rocks. Like I said, he can even set up Trick Room.

Xatu: With only three(Correct me, if I am wrong) Rapid Spinners in this tier, we'll need to prevent Stealth Rocks with magic Bounce.

Claydol/Cryagonal/Delibird:I probably misspelled them, but cut me some slack. These are the only three Pokemon to have Rapin Spin in this Tier. Claydol being the most bulky of the three to take a hit and Spin those rocks away and also to absorb the Thunderbolt spams.

Latios/Latias: Draco Meteor for days. Anything else to say? Latias can do her Sub/Roost/CM/Dragon Pulse here.

Zapdos/Thundurus-T: Thunderbolt with their amazing Special Attack Stat will be deadly.

Swellow: She'll have a blast spamming Facades with her 383 Speed.

Aerodaytl/Archeops:Their Rock Stab will be hitting almost every Pokemon in this tier for neutral damage.

Is there any common threats I missed? Please let me know in your replies.

If Delibird is good in Sky Battles, then it finally gets the justice it deserves.

Also Rotom.

While Gengar is faster than Zapdos/Thundurus-T, they both can use Agility and become faster + they have STAB Thunderbolt.

But good job pointing Gengar out.
