Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What Pokemon have been moved from their original tier placement?

1 vote

Please show their original tier and what tier they're in up to date, and all their tier changes.

Ex. Hydreigon was in OU, but it was moved to UU and then back to OU again. Right?

is this smogon tier?
Of course.
AWWW YEH Thx JCM. Epic answer, bro. :-)
Cinccino also well deserved RU. Some great changes made in this list.  EDIT: I know, but it was a great answer and you've deservedly taken the best answer already.
GL, I'm not finished at all, but this is awfully hard to find. I'm trying pretty hard :P
I wonder why Chariz was moved down from'd do fine in RU. Boy, I better show that Accelgor set Ben made to the smogon people for the tiers...Wow. not a single UU movement in here at all.
GL? One set doesn't make a Pokemon go up or down. Usually. Charizard got moved down because of SR, and because it wasn't used enough.
Another fake myth: People think that one guy on Smogon makes the tiers and moves them all. Nope. It's decided on Pokemon Usage.
On the usage? I guessed it was just voted on by a bunch of the high-ranking smogonites....
"One set doesn't make a Pokemon go up or down." Well what about Aron? Or is that banned?
It's LC, and FEAR is an awful strategy to use, being both cheap and uneffective.
Oh. Ok. Fine. It is effective......most of the time.
And yeah, usage. Let's take Infernape in OU, for example. If it gets less than 3.14% of usage in OU, it gets dropped to UU. Same thing for all tier except LC and Ubers. And no, it's not. Not in any tier except OU, where even there other Pokemon are preferred.
Does this get updated in March, or what's the status here?
What do you mean?
Like when new tier movements are announced. I'd like this to be edited every time they're updated.
That'll be hard as ****..
It doesn't have to be by you, JCM. It can be done by anyone. When the character limit is reached, we'll post a new answer.
I'll try e.e
May I please have this updated? I want it updated every 3 months. It does NOT have to be JCM. I will give one upvote to anyone who edits this every 3 months. Thanks.

1100th comment! :D
Why 3 months??
Also js these are only Pokemon from NU, this is extremely incomplete.
I am sorry :( I was hoping for all of them.
3 months is when they update the tiers. So, with that theory, I believe they've already done it this month.

Are you asking about this month or the totality of time that tiers have existed? I don't have enough energy to answer the latter; tier changes for this month have been asked already:

Abomasnow has moved to UU. (down from OU)
Chansey has moved to UU. (down from OU)
Absol has been moved to RU. (up from NU)
Amoonguss has moved to RU. (up from NU)
Cinccino has moved to RU. (up from NU)
Emboar has been moved to RU. (up from NU)
Snover has been moved to RU. (up from NU)
Roselia has been moved to NU. (down from RU)
Stoutland has been moved to NU. (down from RU)

Source and I looked through the list myself.
