    We all know Oras Ubers is a broken tier. Most of the teams looks the same, innovations are very rare. Every Team has a Primal Gorudon, Espeeder or Xerneas. But what if u can't use all of them?
    In my tournament every player gets a limit of 25 coins and wit these 25 coins they have to make a team. Often used Pokemon are expensive while low used Pokemon are pretty cheap. I will use the tier usuages of September for this tour.
    #1 - #3 most used Pokemon (Groudon, Xerneas, Normal Arceus) costs 10 coins.
    #4 - #6 of most used pokemon (Darkrai, Kyogre, Mewtwo) costs 8 coins.
    #7 - #10 (Yveltal, Greninja, Ho-oh, Gengar) costs 5 coins.
    #11 - #15 (Ditto, Salamance, Blaziken, Arceus-Ground, Kangaskhan) costs 3 coins.
    #16 - #20 (Rayquaza, Aegislash, Giratina-O, Ferrothorn, Lugia) costs 2 coins.
    Now i have 2 other options. I can say every other Pokemon costs 1 coin or i say #21 - #30 costs 1 coin and the rest is for free.

    Rules are like always. Sleep-Clause, Species-Clause, Wifi-Clause and Self-Ko-Clause. I prefer Bo3 but i know u guys just like Bo1 except in finals.

    I've been mad busy and forgetting about these.
    Also I'm the only active TD,,,
    I'm gonna go ahead and say that your prices are not something I can get behind, the top 3 are probably ok but Ho-Oh for 5 coins while Darkrai is 8 is nuts, Greninja for the same as Ho-Oh and Yveltal is also silly. Gren is good but not that good. Ray is literally less than 10% of your coins. Usage isn't the best way to do this for Ubers.

    Yeah i decided now to use the viability rankings. With some points of the ranking I cant agree, so I chanced it a bit. And i decided to change one price from 8 to 7 coins. The budget is still 25 coins.
    So now the prices again:
    S+ to S- costs 10 coins: Groudon, Arceus-Normal, Xerneas, Darkrai, Ho-oh
    A+ and A costs 7 coins: Arceus (Ghost, Ground, Rock), Kyogre, Yveltal, Latios, Latias, Lugia, Mewtwo (regular and both megas), Dialga, Giratina-O, Klefki.
    A- to B+ costs 5 coins: Arceus (Dark, Fairy and Water), Deoxys-Speed, Deoxys-Attack, Diancie (mega), Gengar (mega), Rayquaza, Ferrothorn, Kangaskhan (Mega), Kyurem-White, Shaymin-Sky, Zekrom, Tyranitar (regular and mega).
    B and B- costs 3 coins: Aegislash, Blaziken (regular and mega), Genesect, Gliscor, Palkia, Sableye (mega), Scizor (Mega), Wobbuffet, Blissey, Chansey (I know Chansey got F rank, but it deserves the B ranking imo), Clefable, Ditto, Excadrill, Giratina, Landorus-Therian, Skarmory.
    C+ to D costs 2 coins: Aerodactyl, Arceus (Grass, Poison, Dragon, Ice, Steel, Fly, Psychic, Electric, Fighting, Bug, Fire), Greninja, Landorus-Incarnate, Lucario (mega), Metagross (mega), Scolipede, Smeargle, Jirachi, Reshiram, Mawile (mega), Deoxys-Defense.
    All other Pokemon costs just 1 coin.
    I think now the list should be more balanced.

    I looked over the prices again and im not that happy with it smh. Its easy to build a standard stall team now while ho and balanced are pretty weak.
    Should i change the prices of for example sableye 7 and chansey/blissey to 5 coins?

    Stall in Ubers is generally regarded as weaker than offense. That is reflected in our Viability Rankings
    Chansey got F because Mega Gengar makes Shed Shell Blissey better in general (or it did when those rankings were made)
    I would put Arceus-Ghost in S tier as well, Ghostceus is very, very good.
    Giratina can probably go where Giratina-O is if you want less defensive domination
    I would put "Arceus (Grass, Poison, Dragon, Ice, Steel, Fly, Psychic, Electric, Fighting, Bug, Fire)"
    Up to 5 coins.
    Arceus for anything less than 5 coins is nuts.

    Anything else I can't claim to know enough about a tier I haven't played in a very long time.

    @Weavile Yeah i can agree with your points about all arceus forms. I will make all Arceus at least for 5 coins. But I have enough experiences in this tier and i think arceus ghost is fine in A ranking.
    Would you approve it then with the changes?

    @La.Melle2402

    All Arceus formes should be at least 5 coins.
    Gengar (Mega) and Arceus-Water should be 7 coins.
    Giratina- O and Dialga can be reduced to 5 coins.
    Lucario (Mega) should not be less than 5 coins.
    I'd argue about Rayquaza being 7 coins as well, it's a monster.

    Rest of the list looks ok to me for now.

    @Draciel Since when u have anything to say here? Jk jk ^^
    Well, I already said all Arceus forms will be at least 7 coins (except normal and ghost for 10). And yeah I forgot Mega Lucario, I would give it 7 coins. Its very strong and underated imo. I agree about Dialga, but imo Gira-O deserves 7. And Mega Gengar can get 7 as well. And Ray can cost 7 as well
