When I played PO's servers, it occurred to me how different the environment between that and Smogon is. I realised this when I used a team based on Smogon's NU tier, and I am quite surprised to see a few Pokemon not on Smogon's NU list there (Even then, the Pokemon I encountered are handled well by my team). I will cover some of those differences in a minute, but it's fascinating to see those differences exist. What are some of those changes I noticed? Well, here's a breakdown:

Something that intrigues me for some time is how animals in their infant stage look like. They come in different names, like pups, calves and cubs, but for the sake of simplicity, I will just refer to the baby animals as baby (insert animal here). Here are some of those I found, and for the sake of originality, it will be lesser-heard animals in baby form.
Can you view the images? If not, I might change the link of the pictures so that they are viewable. Baby Beaver

Since I am practically done with this series, might as well post the rest now. Finishing up this three-part series are the rest of the Generation 5 Pokémon. It's a lot to take in in a short time, but I am not expecting you to read them in one day. Still, it's a light read (I think), so it shouldn't be too bad, huh. I hope you enjoy this, because it took more than a week to get this done. If you want to see the previous parts, here they are: Part 1 and Part 2. Before we move on, the same disclaimer
Continuing on to the second part, we take a look at more Generation 5 Pokémon. Before moving on, I shall repeat the disclaimer.
The ratings are based on opinion, meaning that whatever additions I find useful may not apply to what others may find useful, although the guesses are generally accurate. Also, the ratings do not reflect a Pokémon’s usefulness, so a high rating doesn’t mean that the Pokémon is highly effective. Likewise, a low rating does not mean the Pokémon is useless

Since the beginning of Black 2 and White 2, I wanted to rate how well each Unova Pokémon benefit from Move Tutors, considering how they didn't have access to them, not to mention their rather sparse movepools compared to those of the previous Generations, which is obviously true because they had move tutors. I am sure before Platinum or even Emerald, their movepools weren't as diverse. This will be done in three parts.
Thing is, as I am doing this, my interest in this endeavour became
