Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is there a gen 6 tier list? (Smogon)?

0 votes

I hear everyone saying certain Pokemanz are in OU / UU etc, saying Pokemon are in their OU teams, but I've checked and Smogon has yet to release a gen 6 tier list as far as I can tell. So what's going on?

Currently, there are only 3 tiers out, Ubers, OU, UU Beta (this is excluding LC and doubles).

What Smogon has done was taken the Pokemon considered to OP and placed them into Ubers, then took the Pokemon most used by competitive players and placed them into OU, and threw in 3 Limbo tiers, which basically makes up the UU Beta tier.

Pokemon considered Uber are unallowed in the OU tier, here's the list:

All forms of Arceus, Blazekin, Darkrai, Deoxys, Deoxys-A, Dialga, Giratina, Giratina-O, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-W, Lugia, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Shaymin-S, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom.

Pokemon considered in the OU tier are unallowed in UU Beta. Here is the tier list:

Aegislash, Alakazam, Azumarill, Blissey, Breloom, Charizard, Clefable, Cloyster, Conkeldurr, Donphan, Dragonite, Espeon, Excadrill, Ferrothorn, Forretress, Galvantula, Garchomp, Genesect, Gengar, Gliscor, Goodra, Greninja, Gyarados, Heatran, Infernape, Jirachi, Kangaskhan, Klefki, Landorus, Landorus-Therian, Latios, Lucario, Mamoswine, Mandibuzz, Mawile, Pinsir, Rotom-Wash, Sableye, Salamence, Scizor, Skarmory, Smeargle, Starmie, Sylveon, Talonflame, Tentacruel, Terrakion, Thundurus, Togekiss, Trevenant, Tyranitar, Venusaur, Volcarona, Dialga, Giratina, Giratina-O, Groudon, Ho-Oh, Kyogre, Kyurem-W, Lugia, Mewtwo, Palkia, Rayquaza, Reshiram, Shaymin-S, Xerneas, Yveltal, Zekrom.

Then you have Pokemon placed into the BL tier who are also banned in UU, but aren't considered OU:

Manaphy and Kyurem-Black

Remember that OU and UU are based off of usage and that these tiers are subject to change once the find something OP enough to be bumped out of UU and into OU. In a few moths, the RY tier will be put in place which will be based off of the usage stats in UU.

Is there any news on Mega Evolutions? Like Mega Gengar is that allowed in OU or is it banned?
Gengarite and Kangaskanite are banned.
Really? :/ So can you only use them in Ubers or are they banned altogether?
Why excluding lc and doubles?
Mega Gengar and Kangaskhan are both banned/ubers, which means you can only use these two mega if your in ubers tier.
Alright thanks :) Any information on the other Mega Stones?
tazzie, because doubles and LC don't correspond with OU Singles and such.
