the text was stolen hard from meow who stole from smogon, no like legit literally ripped off from here When BW NU was created a bit over two years ago, I think nobody would have envisioned the metagame that we play today. The tier has gone through a ton of changes, whether it involves Snow Warning Snover or Sand Stream Hippopotas, or powerful Pokemon like Magmortar, Druddigon, and Feraligatr in NU. As BW NU/LU/UU moved along, a large amount of good Pokemon have had their time in NU. Pokemon like Crustle, Bisharp, Amoonguss, and Cincinno have all had their time as well, and had a huge effect on the metagame. Since X/Y is coming in a little less than a month, I'd like to gather the playerbase and get some reflections and analysis of the tier as whole. Some people have been playing NU since it began, while others only started mere weeks ago, with a lot of us (myself included) falling somewhere in the middle. Getting responses from all of these types of players would be a great way to chronicle the ending of the tier. These questions serve a guideline; you can answer all or pick and choose, and feel free to post your own thoughts on the tier as well. 1. When did you start playing NU, and what spurred you to start? 2. Which metagame stage do you believe was the most balanced/healthiest? The least balanced/healthiest? 3. Which metagame stage was your favourite? Your least favourite? 4. What Pokemon do you believe have had the biggest impact overall on the tier? Which Pokemon do you feel were/are the most dangerous? 5. What metagame trends have you noticed pervading the tier since you started playing the tier? What playstyles and Pokemon have come and gone in and out of style? 6. What do you feel should have been banned? What do you feel shouldn't have been banned? 7. What's the toughest match you've had? Logs or replays would be cool as well. 8. What are your personal highlights from BW NU? 9. If you wanted to say something to the NU Tier Leaders, what would you say? (This is your chance to flame us, js) I'll be answering myself after I see some answers!
