Battle Center Discussion #8: Favorite Non-OU Metagames


It's been a while, hasn't it? Sorry for the delay, but it is time to get back in the swing of things. This week's topic is what unconventional (just not Overused) tiers are preferred overall and why? Feel free to discuss and debate (civilly) the strengths, along with flaws of certain metagames.

Personally, DPP UU has to be my favorite tier of all time, not just to personal success in it, but everything in it felt right. I was able to experiment with how my teams were set up and what they were based off of. It always had variety and no real overcentralizing preference. Venusaur was good, but not unstoppable with Pokemon like Blaziken around, and Blaziken in turn was stopped by Milotic, and so on.

Doubles during DPP also holds a special spot in my heart due to just how fast paced and methodical it ended up being.

Currently, I'd have to choose the RU tier as it has enough variety, without weather or superpowerful pokemon in the way
