amigo767 posted...The biggest issue is that it can render the entire concept of a setup sweeper useless. In the metagame, turn usage is key to winning. Players attempt to gain "free turns" etc in order to execute certain tactics on which their win condition is contingent upon. If one is using a setup sweeper, and a Ditto is on the enemy team, the player has two options: 1) Setup your sweeper while simultaneously coming under assault from the enemy's pokemon, and pray that the Ditto doesnt counter sweep. 2) Abandon your win condition and likely lose the game.
no offense man, but you dont seem to know what youre talking about. you arent considering very important aspects of the game. Also, where in my post did I say that things get sent to Uber because they can be effectively used there? It's mad late now, but i might be back tomorrow to elaborate and hopefully enlighten you.

This is why I hate smogon(ites). They don't play the game the way it's meant to.

Why are bashing Smogon? PO has almost the same OU tier.
IMO Garchomp is OU because many pokes can check it. Ditto I really don't care. But Kyurem-B...PO was the first to set it loose in OU. Techloom, Scizor, Terrakion etc all OHKO after SR or spikes. Scizor can even come in a CB Outrage and Bullet Punch. But yes the power of Kyurem-B is dangerous. Makes sure you have a steel type (mostly likely Ferrothorn) and it ain't no super threat.
Genesect is Uber because it was in every team. I think it was the most versatile pokemon in the OU ever. It could bolt/beam/thrower with U-turn and scarf. A rockpolish bolt/beam with life orb. It can even do a physical set. Tornadus-T was in every rain team. 121 base speed + U-turn + Regenerator is really good. Not to mention the STAB Hurricane in the rain. The "hit & run" tactic from a Tornadus-T was everywhere. You could even give it heatwave against those pesky Ferrothorns, Scizors and Forretress.

Kyruem-B and Ditto are mediocre outside of their niches and Garchomp isn't any more broken than any of the other top tier sweepers in OU.

Hey amigo been a while. In my opinion the only thing broken is singles battles. They cant ever be balanced.
I'm calling you an elitist, but I'm just gonna go ahead and leave a snooty remark as I go. I am wutz good

Genesect and Tornadus-T are VERY broken.
Are you kidding me?
