How soon before a new game's pokemon get placed in tiers?

I never cared about the metagame or anything like that before so I'm not sure how long after a game is released, they get placed in official tiers.

I know no one knows the exact date or anything, but realistically speaking, a few weeks, months, a year plus?

All I remember is that it took quite a while for the B/W tiers to be set up.

Edit: I wouldn't say a year. But the time span you're looking for is probably measured in months.

ppl already have been putting them into tiers as soon as their BST was announced/predicted.
Not all of them have been tiered (lol carbink), but that's because just from a first glance you can tell it'll be in a lower tier.

Some of my predictions.

Aegislash for Uber or OU. Even with the weakness to taunt. I really cannot see it going any lower then this. Doublade might be UU. Greninja is basically like a special water version of infernape ( low defenses but high speed and attack stats ) so I am guessing hes probably OU as well and i assume most people will use its secret ability.

Not really sure how they will handle Mega's yet. Quite a few of them are at least as good as uber category pokemon.

You clearly haven't faced evolite doublade. Or at least not a good one. that thing is still a monster.

Tbh, I think preliminary tiers for the Pokemon should be set up simply via theorymon and then the usage will settle the tiers in like 2-3 months.

I was actually using one for ages. Its pretty good but unlike aegis, its mostly just physically defensive and it really needs that swords dance to function. I was pretty hesitant to evolve it for a while. I did not evolve it til 66 or so. People were managing to beat it occasionally while battling people online but in singles so far, i have seen very few who can handle aegislash.
