    New OU List!

    Post by Zeph on Sat Jan 03, 2009 4:51 pm

    Empoleon, Flygon, and Rhyperior have been added.

    Gallade is now BL.

    Discuss.

    I've been expecting those three to make it since the lack of Garchomp, and the sudden rise in activity of Empoleon. I've never seen many people use Gallade anyways. Ah well I guess BL is where the Ralts family will remain forever.

    WTF Rhyperior. Worst OU ever XD

    Gallade being borderline was something I saw coming from a mile away though.

    The OU list changes every month.

    Why didn't you make this when MILOTIC sank to BL.

    That's more surprising than all of this to me.

    Oh, also.

    Considering Rhydon was OU for two generations, and Rhyperior is an amazingly better Rhydon, and the physical/special split, Rhyperior makes sense as an OU....

    Empoleon makes sense, I think it's gone up due to its ability to wall Flygon, and set up on it.

    Flygon getting Outrage makes it a "Duh"

    Also, Empoleon typeing makes it weak to few and strong to many, as well as kinda good stats.

    I find the poll question weird. How can you "approve" of an OU list when it's based on usage I'm not sure :p.

    I don't know.

    I suppose you could disparage it, "not approving it" or just not care, "approving it"

    Even if it was based on usage, what do you think of the tier list NOW is what I'm trying to say.

    It is based on usage.

    *facepalm* I can't type what I mean. So here's the question.

    WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW OU LIST AND CHANGES?

    I think that they represent the current metagame shifts with platinum's release, and perhaps even a possible steadying of the OU list.

    WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO THINK?

    I could really care less about OU right now, but I can't say that I'm really surprised, with new moves being available in Platinum and all...

    Flygon was pretty much, as Oracle expressed, obvious because it gets Outrage.

    I always thought that, because of its special typing, Empoleon would find its way into OU somehow...

    I'm pretty much in accord with Oracle's past posts =P

    But you're silly in this instance, so you don't count.

    I was just surprised, every time I've used Ryperior he's suuuuuuuucked. Physical wall with a /Fighting/ weakness? No thanks.

    Weird.

    I've used Rhyperior with an okay track record.

    I don't know why you'd use him for walling, considering he's just a bulky sweeper who can roar or set up SR if really needed. (no reliable recovery?)

    I actually like Rhyperior and the others that have joined OU. Ive used Rhyperior in Sandstorm teams before and used him just like how the Popular Pauper said, works okay for me.

    Here is proof that Shade and Sphinx aren't the same, as they are disagreeing on Rhyperior.

    I love it-It's abilty kicks ass, and, It's got a HUGE DEF/ATT.

    Lawl, it's ability doesn't help against Surf. Everytime it's usually a 1-2HKO from something with good Sp.Atk. Quadruple weakness' suck.
