However, you may notice one of our favorite Defoggers and overall beefy dragon Latias rose, taking along with one of our best special Mega Evos, Manectric. Since UU is a ferocious battle to see which pokemon will take the "Mega spot", this could help other Mega Evos cement their position in the Tier, like MegaCham and MegaToise. Like in the last period, the UU->LU drops and the LU/NU->UU rises are shown to catch the player's attention to some of the pokemon that have started to gone low-profile and once represented great powers in UU, like Heracross. I guarantee you they're all still fresh for use in the tier. You are encouraged to voice opinions about the new drops/rises in this thread, as well as potential suspects. In fact, those are the "only" two things we want you do to around here. Argumentation should be without backless theorymonning, ad hominem attacks or irrelevant pieces of information. Anyone that goes off the line will be infracted.
