    nothing has changed for charizard, there's no chance of it doing any worse in NU than previous. besides - it's LU by usage.

    Atm, NU is pretty much defined by the combination of Exeggutor, Emboar, Sawk, and Samurott. Anyway, all of them seem like pretty good potential suspects for power and centralisation. The tier isn't just developing around them, it seems to be them. As for power, there is very little in the tier than Emboar can't OHKO, and there is quite literally nothing it can't 2HKO in the entire tier (provided proper set and move.) Exeggutor has only a few sure counters like Bouffalant because of sleep powder. Sawk can 2HKO anything but ghost's and musharna with close combat. Samurott can 2HKO most things but Poliwrath, Amoonguss, and Vileplume, and unlike the others, has decent speed without being choice locked. While i'm not sure if an are actually ban worthy, I think it should be seriously considered whether or not they belong in the NU tier at present.

    I think I speak for everyone when I say I accept this trade.

    You did reference ranked stats right?

    Yes

    I don't mind losing Archeops. I rarely saw it anyways so....

    I'm not too happy about Whimsi coming back as its just annoying but I run a grass type on all my teams so that leech seed shit isn't a threat. I've been waiting for Mespirit to drop forever. Quag I don't really care too much about. I'll use him but I wouldn't care if he went back up.


    I want my primeape/hariyama/gardevoir :|

    Gain:
    Whimsicott - Its just an annoying bitch that t-waves at everything so i don't care.
    Quagsire - When i started playing serious NU its exactly the time when Quagsire and its batchmates went up so I'm looking forward from using this guy.
    Mespirit - Wow. Something new. Hi Mesprit!
    Lose:
    Archeops - I used this guy in the first ever team that i used (borrowed from Gl4ss) its freakin' amazing with Flying Gem but its FRAIL and weak to stealth rocks and stealth rocks users (Rhydon,Golem,Regirock,Torkoal,Gigalith) Bye Arch.

    Waiting for:
    Ludicolo - PLEASE COME BACK!!
    Ferroseed - Good spiker and wall.
    Hariyama - Thick Fat. MOAR FIGHTING TYPES, MORE MUSHARNA FUN!

    Ludicolo was bad enough with Damp Rock banned.

    I really hope it doesn't drop again any time in the near future.

    Ferroseed, a good wall? For shame. In response to an earlier post, does Emboar actually 2hko Grumpig, Rhydon, and Musharna?

    Good luck to Whimsicott, with Bouff around.

    If ludi comes down again, Damp Rock gets banned. Not that much to worry about, really.

    I wonder if Golurk will move up now, since it gets the elemental punches and drain punch. Combined with Iron Fist it can do a lot of damage. I hope it gets more recognition, it's so underrated.
