Starmie and Amoonguss have risen to the OU tier, meaning we lose a great spinner and offensive threat, as well as a bulky pivot and team support. In a budding battle between LU and UU, we have lost most of the pokemon we gained last shift, with Rhyperior, Aggron, Absol, Ampharos, and Aerodactyl rising, as well we lose Sceptile, Magneton, and surprisingly enough Feraligatr. This also means we lose the mega forms, and as such, any potential suspect will have to wait until they ever re-enter the tier. Not all is bad though, we have gained some key things from UU as well. Cresselia has fallen, as well as normal Gallade and Medicham. Vaporeon returns to the tier as well providing another bulky water pivot. Pinsir finally drops as well, which gives way to a strong bug type, but I don't see him doing exactly too much for the tier, however he has multiple uses, so he won't be entirely useless in a tier full of Psychic types. In a lower field, that matters not at all, we take Poliwrath, Camerupt, Bronzong, Jolteon, Seismitoed, Smeargle, Togetic, and Whimsicott from NU. Where as we will leave them with Druddigon, Dugtrio, Glalie, Registeel, Wobbuffet, and Xatu. That should be real fun for shaking up our lower tier sister the Never Used tier. As well, for anyone who didn't really notice, we had both Darmanitan and Mienshao drop today. However, due to the way the tier has changed, and not actually getting much to use, and the case of the their destructive power just from the get go, we've decided that both Mienshao and Darmanitan will be QUICKBANNED from ORAS LU. We convened and went over the scenarios with both pokemon, and they have already had a very strong impact on the tier. They bring with them very destructive power, abilities, and sets that leave very little conventional counters to them, and mostly niche based checks. If you wish to have an elaboration on both of them, I can most certainly do so, but for the best interest of continuing on with a healthy metagame formation of LU, we find it'd be best for both of these to not enter and have to wait for suspects to ban them. So, go ahead and feel free to discuss any potential Pokemon that you all may feel might have an adverse effect towards a healthy metagame, and we shall discuss it here. First order of business for Aurist and I though, will be to go ahead with Honchkrow and Mega Sharpedo, and work our way from there.
