How long till Manaphy becomes Uber again?

I'm sick of seeing it in OU. It's obviously way too strong for the tier and needs to be brought up to Uber once again.

It'll probably stay OU.

Fine I'll just abuse Manaphy myself till everyone recognizes it needs to be brought to Uber.

Honestly it has a good shot at staying OU. All it has going for it over the other base 100s, AFAIK, is tail glow. Not that it's not a great attack, but if Mew, who gets a load of moves, stays in UU, it's unlikely that Tail Glow alone will push Mana to Ubers. Not that I'd be surprised if it does get moved eventually, but don't count on it.

Manaphy is so much better than Mew its not even worth discussing, and this is coming from a Mew fanboy


Its basically a better Kingdra, better Mew, AND better Celebi all at once.

Manaphy really isn't like any of them except Kingdra which still isn't a good comparison.

Actually its because Tail Glow Manaphy combines the positives off all three of them in one pokemon.

It have solid coverage like Mew(thanks to having broken Water type), it have good typing like Celebi(one of many reason Celebi is > Mew btw), it have their amazing flat 100 Base stats spread, and Tail Glow set is basically Kingdra's Focus Energy set, but better

I wouldn't call Celebi's typing good and The nerfs Manaphy received along with its base speed make it easy enough to take down.
