Permission from Mike
So earlier I got to Pastebin and started writing what I think should be done to our OU tier. People seemed to like them and they seem reasonable.
-The current Smogon clauses and bans are still in place.
-Restrictions to one type of hazard per team. Hopefully this eliminates Spikes as a hazard.
-Using weather abilities in conjunction with a Pokemon that can permanently set up that weather is banned. This means using Drought Ninetales and a Clorophyll user on the same team is banned.
-Trick Room may not be popular but it is incredibly OP once set up. Usually TR teams consist of 3 TR users. I suggest restricting teams to two TR users.
-After much discussion me, Mike and others decided Sand and Rain are dominant and OP with other bans/tier changes in place. For this reason Sand Stream and Drizzle get a bye from OU.
The Border Line tiers are being abolished. For this reason some Pokemon shall be moving up from BL to OU.
Also some notable Pokemon from Ubers shall be moving down (with the changes that is). This is because they fit nicely into OU.
Pokemon moving up/down will be Bolded
Alakazam, Blissey, Breloom, Celebi, Cloyster, Conkeldurr, Deoxys-S, Dragonite, Dugtrio, Excadrill, Ferrothorn, Forretress, Garchomp, Gengar, Glisocr, Gothitelle, Gyarados, Heatran, Hippowdon, Hydregion, Infernape, Jellicent, Jirachi, Jolteon, Keldeo, Kyurem-B, Landorus, Landorus-T, Latias, Latios, Magnezone, Mamoswine, Manaphy, Ninetales, Reuniclus, Rotom-W, Salamence, Scizor, Shaymin-Sky, Skarmory, Staraptor, Starmie, Tentacruel, Terrakion, Thundurus, Thundurus-T, Tyranitar, Volcarona
With the weather bans this should be balanced. Though Thundurus and Shaymin-S may need to go through some testing.
This does mean some Pokemon will be moving down (13).
Chansey, Donphan, Espeon, Gastrodon, Haxorous, Kyurem, Lucario, Metagross, Politoed (without Drizzle), Toxicroak, Vaporeon, Venasaur and Wobbuffet.
Remember all Pokemon below OU are usable in OU.
So yeah these are the ideas we have had in chat.
If you have any queries do ask as I will be answering all Qs. This will be edited accordingly.
