    Moved Heracross to B- (Was originally in C due to flame orb was unreleased, its way better than that.) Moved tentarcruel to B+ - Considering moving higher, need more discussion. Its one of the best spinners in the tier. On par with starmie IMO. Added forretress to B Would like to see more discussion from other members of community on moving Reuniclus to A+. I think it should be moved and I'll probably write up a big post sometime.

    OU Viability Rankings

    I've had this opinion for a while but I didn't think people would receive it well. I felt as if as soon as flame orb Facade from Conk got popular, Reuni would drop. It just straight up loses its ability to switch in on the biggest threat in the metagame which is kind of a big deal. I think its other sets have viability like that annoying heal block variant, toxic, etc. Calm mind is still a monster if you remove the threats necessary, but otherwise doesn't do much vs. mantine/milotic. Would like to hear other opinions on this. Reuniclus is still one of those pokes that if you don't teambuild with it in mind, it will pick you apart and possibly sweep you. I'm personally for it dropping to A+.

    Taking over this thread from Orangemaniac, with his permission. I've made a few changes to reflect current meta better: Cofagrigus rise from C+ to B - the only true Conk counter, has been rising in usage slightly. Has some interesting techs like Hex and Toxic Spikes. It is still pretty weak wall to thinks not named conkelldurr. When I face it, it is typically just a sitting duck. Crobat from C+ to B- - I think this mon is worth more in OU. Would like to hear opinions on this. It has an amazing speed tier, breaks stall teams, can be a Conk check. Chandelure from B- to B+ - This mon has been rising in usage rapidly as of late. Its a decent check to conkelldurr and its substitute calm mind set is very strong in this metagame. If your opponent doesn't have Ttar this pokemon typically puts in some work. It can setup on non-shadow ball chansey and blissey. (Assuming you sub before toxic). Porygon2 from Unranked to B+ - P2 is a very strong blanket check to many threats in the metagame. Eviolite makes it the premier check for mons like Hydreigon, Gyara, Starmie. I am considering moving P2 higher but would like some input. Darmanitan from B- to B - Darmanitan actually had some presence as wallbreaker for a good while when sheer force was working. Unfortunately, it is not as good right now when the ability is bugged. I'm still going to rank Darmanitan as B, assuming the ability will be fixed soon. Added machamp from Unranked to C+. Has an OK niche right now. Being spammed on ladder with sash lead dynamic punch like DPP. It can break teams, similarly to Conk, with flame orb guts. It is still MASSIVELY in Conk's shadow, but it is also a decent mon in itself. Moving tentacruel from B- to B. It is an OK conk check. It is used on stall builds as a Volc counter. It can tspike, spin, and scald burns are a pain in the ass. Overall a decent pokemon. It is an untraditional bulky water compared to Milo, but I think it deserves a higher spot compared to mons like Snorlax and Arcanine. I feel as if people were more creative with their team builds, Tentacruel would be more incorporated in our metagame. Added Smeargle from unranked to C+. Smeargle is a legitimate lead option now with focus sash. The only suicide lead that can do anything you want it to. Sleep, setup spikes and rocks, etc. Removed Bellossom and Victreebell because if you use those then stop playing ou. pls convice me otherwise xD Current talking points: Hydreigon drop from S to A+. Would like opinions on this. From other thread, I think it has lost its niche as best dragon type. It can't drop Draco so its specs set has lost some power in comparison to new threats like salamence and kingdra. That being said, taunt roost is an absolute monster. Pory2 and Chansey are better checks after previous patch. Volcarona drop from A+ to A. I personally disagree. This mon is still extremely strong. Can be used on many different types of team. Bold Quiver, sub Quiver, offensive Quiver, it does it all. It's hard to build around but extremely strong in this current metagame. Anything else you deem worthy of talk. Should conkelldurr be in its own S tier? How do the new items affect Mons? Where should we place Porygon2? etc.

    OU Viability Rankings

    Welcome to the OU Viability RankingsThread. If you do not know what a viability thread entails read further. A viability thread has as purpose to put Pokémon into 'ranks', by lack of a better term. In the OU viability rankings we base our rankings on how viable certain Pokémon in OU are. Discussion is encouraged and remember that you are always entitled to your opinion but forget not to be respectful to other community members. There won't be a split between offensive/defensive/support Pokémon as this is a general viability thread. Meaning offensive and defensive Pokémon can fit into the same rank without utilizing the same role. Bringing underrated Pokémon up for discussion is also part of a viability thread discussion. When proposing a ranking change please post reasoning behind your argument to make sure we avoid the thread being littered.

These Pokemon are able to perform a variety of roles very effectively, or can just do one extremely well. Their use has low risk involved and high reward exerted. Pokemon in this rank have very few flaws that are patched up by numerous positive traits. S Rank: Conkeldurr Hydreigon Reuniclus A Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are fantastic in the OU metagame, and can sweep, support, or wall significant portions of the metagame. These Pokemon require less support than most others to be used effectively and have few flaws that can easily be compensated for when compared to their positive traits. A+ Rank: Chansey Ferrothorn Scizor Tyranitar Volcarona A Rank: Dragonite Excadrill Gengar Hippowdon Mamoswine Mienshao Magnezone Salamence Skarmory A- Rank: Blissey Gliscor Gyarados Lucario Kingdra Milotic Togekiss B Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are great in the OU metagame. These Pokemon have more notable flaws than those above them that affect how they function in the tier. Their positive traits still outshine their negatives, but they require a bit more team support to bring out their full potential. B+ Rank: Azumarill Chandelure Cloyster Haxorus Jellicent Kabutops Metagross Mantine Pelipper Porygon2 Starmie Tentacruel B Rank: Breloom Bronzong Cofagrigus Darmanitan Forretress Jolteon Porygon-Z B- Rank: Arcanine Crobat Forretress Heracross Mandibuzz Roserade Snorlax Weezing Swampert C Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are mediocre in the OU metagame, but have just as many notable flaws that prevent them from being effective. Pokemon in the C tier often require significant support to be effective. Pokemon from this rank tend to face a lot of competition with the more commonly used Pokemon. These Pokemon exert a below average presence in the metagame. C+ Rank: Alakazam Clefable Dusknoir Machamp Smeargle Torkoal Vaporeon Weavile C Rank: Blaziken Donphan Hariyama Medicham Scrafty Slowbro C- Rank: Aerodactyl Golurk Houndoom Krookodile Flygon Rhyperior Sawsbuck D Rank: Reserved for Pokemon that are highly mediocre in the OU metagame, but are viable enough to justify their use on select teams. These Pokemon are only capable of doing their specific task and fail at doing anything more than that. Pokemon from this rank have multiple crippling flaws that prevent them from being successful a majority of the time, and are often severely outclassed because of it. These Pokemon exert a poor presence in the metagame. D Rank:

  11. To be fair, in the last 6 months stall has really fallen off in SM. No dugtrio made it much worse, but even meta trends are hurting it. Clefable and heatran are the most common stealth rockers. Utility tran guarantees stealth rocks and at minimum 1 kill against stall, and Clefable gets free rocks on Sabeleye. Mega Mawile is the most common wallbreaker used in the tier, and it is extremely hard to outplay with stall. Zygarde beats non-tangrowth stall builds, Mega-medicham and Mega-Zam can break stall, etc etc. SMOU is dominated by balance right now and hyper offense right now. Stall still can work, but it requires a lot more thinking and matchup luck than before. edit: didnt even mention Kartana is everywhere, magnezone is everywhere, banded ttar is everywhere, Lele, so much shit rn just breaks stall
  12. I take it back. I had a preconceived notion you were bad last season bcuz u lost to Linken, didn't understand tier, and were big trashtalker. But looking back at replays, A. you got haxed by linken, B. you had 4-2 record otherwise, so i can't really shit talk that at all. Honestly, I don't know anything about the Nik bet I just thought you were a bad player lol. But now I see otherwise, you were pretty damn good at DPP and the plays u made were solid. I swallow my pride here, and if DPP is tier again I hope u play.
