Lets say theres a pokemon that sucks in UU (Due to mostly bad match ups) but excels in OU (Due to more favorable match ups since its a different meta). Would this pokemon be OU and be banned from UU? And I'm not looking for the "tierring is based on usage" cop out because that's not always the case, otherwise we wouldn't have BL which is banned from UU but not OU. --- Official May of the ORAS Board FC: 3909-8065-9532 IGN: Jarod ElderOmnivore: "Jayroach, I feel your sarcasm.

Case in point: Shedinja. Walls quite a few guys in ubers, sucks in most other metas. --- Metagross, Magnezone, Genesect, Golurk = best Pokemon ever. Robots FTW. Magic is for girls.

Tiering is based on usage.

1) if it was above the minimum OU usage requirements, it would be OU 2) if it didn't reach UU minimum usage requirements, it would be RU or NU but smogon would have OU writeups for it (eg. in Gen V. Stoutland worked in OU with Sandstorm support but without it was an NU pokemon and didn't reach 3.41% usage). --- MissJocelyn: http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/69712152 http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/2000300-pokemon-emerald-social/69775480

It would be whatever tier it would be based on however good it is, but viable in OU. Lol --- FC: 5301-0458-5895. XBL: itsMaverixk. PSN: sycamotree

People were talking about banning Shadow Tag in general if the Gengar suspect passes, so Wobbufett would be banned from Ubers if that happened but not other tiers... --- I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite user on the Citadel. 3DS FC: 5429-8904-8022 (Andrew) Friend Safari: Flying - Pidgey, Tranquill, Hawlcuha
