Official Uber/UU/OU/BL list?

#1Hinatachan18Posted 2/20/2011 8:57:11 AM
Is there one somewhere maybe official is a bad term but generally accepted etc for Wi-Fi battles and such?

So who decides what goes on the ban list? i mean obviously the UU and OU are based on usage but the bans?

There is no official list because tiers don't exist.

After a 'round' of playing the metagame, the people who've earnt a sufficiently high rank on the Smogon server are allowed to nominate Pokémon they think are Uber. After the nominations are done, they all vote, and if anything recieves a supermajority (more than 75% of people who qualified think the Pokémon should be Uber) it's sent packing. So far, very few things have been banned; this gen's Uber list is actually shorter than last gen's.

The current Uber list/ban list for OU is:

Mewtwo
Ho-Oh
Lugia
Kyogre
Groudon
Rayquaza
Deoxys-F (Deoxys Attack)
Deoxys-RS (Deoxys Normal)
Palkia
Dialga
Giratina
Shaymin-Sky
Darkrai
Manaphy
Arceus
Reshiram
Zekrom
The ability Inconsistent/Sudden Impulse

You may not have Drizzle Politoed and any Pokémon with the ability 'Swift Swim' on the same team

And some other stuff is claused since it's not obtainable yet. The most important ones are:

Keldeo
Genesect
Meloetta
Custap Berry
Soul Dew

Depends on what rules you play by. The vast majority of competitive players play by smogon rules. Smogon does play testing with a selected amount of high ranked players that then vote on if something should be banned.

Ok but see the thing is At least one of those pokemon each gen from what i've read has been one of my favorites. For example I'm a mew fan NOT mewtwo but Mew I think he's adorable and I love using him what I dont get is why they're "banned" and not just "limited" Aka you're allowed one on your team I really dont see having one as making or breaking a challenge I can fully understand Rules saying you can't have 6 Ubers unless your in the Uber league or whatever the match ruleset would be called but to out and out say no or we wont play you I dont get that's why i'm Asking who decides them and why.
