Rapid-Spinner options of Gen VI?

0 votes

What are the new options, and which are viable in which tiers?
Most people are still using most of the Gen V spinner sets, and there's a lot of new threats against these guys as of recently...

Ubers:

The only Pokémon that can learn Rapid Spin and are even considered using in the Ubers tier is Excadrill and perhaps Mega Blastoise.

Because of the weather nerf in Generation VI, I'm pretty sure Drizzle + Swift Swim in now viable. If that's the case then Kabutops could possibly come out of RU and be in UU.

I'm not exactly sure where I should place Avalugg, since the Gen VI tiers have not been released. But I doubt it's going to be placed any higher than UU, so it's a choice of UU and RU.

RU:

Sandslash

Armaldo

Again if Drizzle + Swift Swim in now viable, Armaldo could potentially come out of NU and be in RU.

This list includes every Pokémon that can learn Rapid Spin.

Smogon have not released their Generation VI tiers as far as I know, so if anyone disagrees with what tier I have put a certain Pokémon in leave a comment and I can move them to a different tier. Please do not vote this down this took a lot of time and effort to do.

Hope I helped :)

Excadrill is now in OU
Also, Forretress is viable in Ubers as well as OU
Okay cheers, is Excadrill still viable to use in Ubers?
Seeing how common it is in OU, I would think so
