I don't really go to smogon, but doesn't that just mean it's -- wait for it -- under used? Meaning it's not as overused as it was last gen? I thought uber was the only true tier based on how broken/powerful a pokemon is. Everything else is judged on how often trainers use it in battle. Then again, I don't really go there, so I could be wrong.


You are correct, for the most part. Though Ubers is not the only tier based on power.

If a Pokemon is too broken for UU, it's banned to Borderline (BL).

If a Pokemon is too broken for RU, it's banned to BL2.

Too broken for NU, and you're banned to BL3.

Sableye is OU, which is BS considering it's not OU material, and one of the primary reasons it was being using in the past was for a useful switch-in to Mega Kanga. Outside of that, it has niche use in OU.

Oh, and Galvantula, which was only used for Sticky Web.


lol, Sableye completely dead-stops ANY physical attacker that is not a fire type. Every. Single. One.

Didn't Sableye get more usage this gen just because Mega Khan/other offensive Megas were around?

Sure, just leave your Scizor in and be all, "Hey, burn my physical attacker, please. Naw, I won't switch out, you go ahead."
