Not even sure if im allowed to post but I will anyways. This suggestion I am going to explain in a bit has been something that I have been a big proponent for, for quite some time. It is, Tiering UU based on viability. As I see it right now, the only reason PO adopted smogon tiering policy was because PO was a main sim for Smogon for sometime. This has not been the case for around 3 years now, and there really isn't a reason not to try and do something new, aside from precedence. To be more specific, I think using usage stats as an initial tier list for UU is a good idea, and from there, we could drop lesser but still OU pokemon into our tier as tiering directors/future tier leaders see fit. This could also be gone about from a community perspective as tiering is done for suspects right now. For an example, I just dont think it makes sense to not tier rotom-wash in uu based on viability, it holds a small niche in ou, and was healthy for the UU metagame (providing checks to bird spam while not being a centralizing mon). Moreso, our playerbase is much smaller than pokemonshowdown's which can cause tier lists to be inflated by a select few due to the significantly smaller playerbase. TDLR I think its worth divorcing ousellves from an arbitrary system of tiering, only based on tradition which is outdated to behind with. At least, a discussion about this would be interesting as I think this idea isnt too bad and im curious to see the opposition.
