LU -> OU Seismitoad UU -> LU Porygon2 Aggron Vaporeon Celebi Klefki NU -> UU Magneton LU -> UU Sharpedo LU -> NU Escavalier Camerupt Masquerain Shuckle NU -> LU Archeops Audino Sigilyph Golbat Drapion Malamar Rotom-C Side note that there might be one or two things possibly that were overlooked in doing the stats, as they were done manually this time, so we'll let you know if something is added as a drop or rise later. Alright then, so apparently as you might have noticed it has been decided that we are going forward with more of a 3 month cycle than 2 months from here forward to see how that works out for tiering. These are the changes for the next 3 months. OU for whatever reason likes the water frog, so that rose unexpectedly meaning we lose a good SR setter, bulky water absorb type, and useful pivot Pokemon. Seismitoad was decently used before, and with it gone it'll be interesting to see what people might use instead now. As well on a bigger note, both Sharpedo and Magneton have risen to UU. Sharpedo was a one of the biggest threats, and arguably it could have been a suspect due to just how strong it was unless you carried really bulky Pokemon as depending on the set it ran Physical or Special could steamroll entire teams effortlessly. I don't think anyone will actually miss it too much. Magneton is a bit more surprising, but Mag has always been a very useful pivot, and it's ability to inflict damage will be missed. As far as drops go, P2 is back (much to everyone's disdain I bet, as I bet we were all enjoying the time it was gone in the metagame), Celebi and Klefki have both dropped down again as well. Celebi should honestly be a strong offensive powerhouse both physical and specially, and fills many support roles too. Expect this to make a huge impact for the time being, and Klefki will be a useful pivot for spike setting, good typing, and overall annoyance like it was last time. Vaporeon is back, and it was very god last time it was here, and it will probably pick up where it was last time, only now that Celebi is here, it'll be more set up bait for Celebi users. And finally, Aggron is back (AGGRON SMASH), and as such Mega Aggron comes with it. Aggron isn't such a big deal since Tyrantrum does what it does better, but Mega Aggron is going to be a very tough wall for people to break. All in all, a lot of things that favor stall or defensive based teams has returned to the tier, which might mitigate the fact people dislike the offensive paced game LU has become. I don't fully expect all of these to stay, and we'll give things a little bit of time to get used before starting out and suggesting potential suspects. Also, be in store as we have an LU Ladder challenge in the works, so be sure to watch for that.
