I prefer UU, but I forget which Pokémon are in OU. Ubers is easy to remember.

People like OU because the really good Pokemon are there, and they can use Pokemon from lower tiers without interference from ubers.

I think a lot of people playing OU haven't consciously decided they want to play OU, rather they've just decided they want to play Pokémon without the ubers. With all other Pokémon allowed the Pokemon we describe as OU floated to the top. I never really tried UU or RU, when I played competitively I wanted to make the best team I could without Ubers. That's all there is to it.

Personally, I play RU, because it's the only tier where my favorite Pokemon (Hitmonchan) is viable. I tried using him in UU, but it didn't work out so well.

The OU tier is standard play. Lower tiered pokemon aren't good enough for standard, and Uber pokemon are too powerful.

OU is standard play, basically. It's the least restrictive tier that has any banlist at all. - Interested in helping design an OU Pokemon Team as the GameFAQs community? Follow that link...

I only play RU and NU, I like the diversity of pokemon used. I find in OU alot of people use very similar teams, which is boring to fight the same thing over and over again.

I hate OU because of the damn weather teams. They make the game less varied and a weather team against a team without weather will usually lose.That is the reason I am against the charizard mega evo.
