PostSubject: 5th Gen Uber Tier   Mon Mar 28, 2011 1:32 pm

Hey guys and gals. With 5th gen now here the question has come up about Tiers for 5th gen so I created this thread for those that want to make suggestions about what should be considered Uber. You noticed I said nothing about OU,UU, or NU, as truthfully I HATE tiers lol. I strongly believe as Karen of the Elite 4 said that we should play with our favorites and tiers tends to restrict some players from doing this, fearing insults for using all OU's and such. Those who use Tiers if it works then awesome and please continue if you love it. Our forum embraces all lol. Ubers however is a hot topic amongst many battlers and is the only restricted tier so to speak which is why this topic was made. If you have suggestions for 5th gen or even the current Ubers please post it and state why. Please do not insult or criticize others opinions or action will be taken. Let's make this a fun topic. Thanks guys and gals

Sabe

Zekrom, Reshiram only. They should be uber because of their high stats. In my eyes those are the only two ubers. All or most others have two high stats but the rest are low.

-Latios/Latias are back to OU without Soul Dew, however with Soul Dew, they're Uber.
-Haxorus is Uber with Dragon Dance. (Or without, depends on the situation.)
-Kyurem is Uber. (Depend on how well it can cover it's weaknesses.)
-Genesect is Uber.
-Meloetta MAY be Uber, I don't know.
-Hydreigon is debatable.
-Salamence may go back to OU.
-Garchomp may also go back to OU, but it's more likely to stay in Uber.
-Mew, Mewtwo, Ho-oh, Lugia, Wobbuffet, Wynaut, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys N/A/D/S, Palkia, Dialga, Giratina A/O, Manaphy, Arceus, Shaymin S and Darkrai are staying.

Those are my thoughts/predictions.

Quote :
"The Uber tier is effectively a banlist for OU, however this does not mean it is not, or cannot be used. Pokémon in the Uber tier are deemed too powerful or centralizing to be used fairly among other Pokémon.

It is a misconception that the Uber tier contains only legendary Pokémon. While it is true that a majority of Ubers are indeed legendary, not all Ubers are legendary, nor are all legendary Pokémon Ubers.

While most Pokémon in the Uber tier are there due to high stats, Wobbuffet is often classed as an Uber because of its Shadow Tag ability, along with Encore, Counter and Mirror Coat; this lets it trap any opponent Pokémon and lock them into any move, so that the player knows what their opponent will do next, which allows the player to either switch out Wobbuffet knowing what the opponent will do, or use Counter or Mirror Coat to damage the opponent. Wobbuffet's pre-evolution, Wynaut, is sometimes banned for similar reasons. Other non-legendary Pokémon such as Garchomp and Salamence are sometimes considered Uber due to their movepools, high base stats, and type.

Abilities can also be Uber. If all Pokémon with a certain ability are considered too powerful with the ability but, if they have other abilities, are not considered too powerful, then it is the ability that is banned, not the Pokémon. The only banned ability so far, in the case of Smogon's rules, is Moody, banned because it allows a Pokémon to sharply raise its stats, including Evasion, every turn while using moves like Protect and Substitute, and outweighing the drawbacks of the ability."

To follow up cmndrs quote, i would imagine those that prove too powerful to use in the main or are too central, ie everyone uses them because they pwn everything, should be considered uber, the list could be flexible (pokes enter/exit uber tier depending on strategies, certain gym types etc). That would be my thought on it anyway.

Not that I really like the classing of Pokémon, for Ubers however an unfair advantage can sometimes be frustrating. As regards to who I think should be Uber. I completely agree with Titan on everything and I would add to that list that maybe Chandelure (Mostly because of its high spA stat and its decent defenses and speed) Would probably only be Uber because of Shadow Tag in my opinion.

Hm... well it seems to be a good idea to make our own forums lists. Speed Boost Blaziken became Uber o_0 Although it's not like it has no reason to be.

Also, can we have different rules in the gyms for battling with Dream World ablities and battling with no Dream World abilities?

no, I think it's stupid to have a different tier because of dreamworld abilities. Some abiities may be banned though, but that's an entirely different matter

Contrary Serperior is a good candidate for being banned, as well as Drought Ninetales, and Drizzle Politoed. The reason Tyranitar and Hippowdon aren't banned (Sand Stream) is because Sandstorm only raises Rock type Defense has 20%, and only affects the abilties Sand Veil, Sand Rush and Sand Force, while Drought and Drizzle benefit Swift Swimmers, and powerful Water types, with powerful Water type moves (Kingdra for example), as well a Fire type sweepers. (Darmanitan for example.) But speaking of that, Sand Force/Sand Rush Excadrill may also be considered banned/cheap. Look at it's stats, and you'll see why. Conkeldurr is...........meh. It's broken, but Reuniclus can easily counter it.

These are just my opinions/thoughts, so please don't say any sarcastic remarks. Thanks.

Great comments guys, and I made this topic precisely for this reason, to see members thoughts. However banning pokes due to abilities or even dreamworld is precisely what I don't want here. It essentially would be tailoring rules to benefit only gym leaders and is truthfully silly in my opinion. Ubers are deemed too powerful for competitve play, which is true but there should be a limit. Pokemon such as Chandelure with shadow tag or even haxorus with dragon dance may be deadly but are not impossible to defeat. There are new challenges in 5th gen that I feel we all need to adapt to but that's the fun part. We don't want to ban alot of pokes just because they perhaps got better in 5th gen or gained a better ability. I can think of a ton of pokemon that way.

I was listing ideas about Smogon Tier changes, and banned sets, since Smogon is what everyone follows. (in terms of Tiers)

I did not mean banning Dragon Dance Haxorus here, I was stating that it has a possibility to be in the Uber Tier.

The Drizzle/Drought scenario was there for people to be aware, (because they are actually banned on Smogon)

Ubers aren't impossible to take down, but they ARE hard to take down, as many of them have decent movepools, sky high stats, and great typing. In fact, OUs are the only known ones to be able to fare against Ubers. (NU users, calm down. It's an opinion.)

In conclusion, I apologize if it seemed like I was considering what to ban from here. I wasn't implying that.



NOTE- If you don't like Smogon, and don't have anything nice to say, don't post. If you don't like the Tiers or disagree with what Smogon is banning, then complain to them, not me. Thanks.
