    Default The "Shit Tier"

    Uh, ok, people seem to actually want to talk about this. Super cool.

    The original idea was conceived when my friend said that we should make a Smogon legal team with the goal of losing the battle. NFEs weren't allowed, but I'm removing this rule now that the original idea is gone. The "Shit Tier" is basically Pokemon that aren't even useable in NU or RU or whatever the (benevolent?) overlords at Smogon want to call it. In order for this to work I think it's best to also suggest NFEs that could be added. Due to the low number of Pokemon that seem to be allowed I think it's best to just keep the allowed list rather than make a ban list.

    Procedure for getting a Pokemon added:

    Suggest it and it will be put up for review.

    Procedure for getting a Pokemon on the list banned:

    As was stated, this was a project started be me and my friend. What that means is that he made the list and tried to get one of every type on it. Something being overpowered and in need of being banned is completely reasonable.

    To get this done post a set that would over power the rest of the "tier". If it is determined that nothing can actually counter this set or that very few Pokemon can counter it then the Pokemon in question will be banned.

    Procedure for being added to the review board:

    So if you really care enough about this and want to help with it, just ask. I'm thinking a board of seven will be good. This would include myself and possibly steelfire81, who made the original list and had the idea.

    If you want to be on the board then all you really have to do is ask. No special application is necessary, the board will review your posts and stuff and decide if we think you are versed enough in competitive battling to be on the board. What could go wrong with a self regulating governing body?

    The List:

    Furret
    Watchog
    Dunsparce
    Spinda
    Delcatty
    Chatot
    Farfetch'd
    Delibird
    Ledian
    Dustox
    Kricketune
    Illumise
    Cherrim
    Luvdisc
    Lumineon
    Magcargo
    Pachirisu
    Unown
    Chimecho
    Ditto (allowed due to the limits of what it can transform into)
    Sudowoodo
    Glalie
    Corsola
    Mawile
    Sableye
    Girafarig
    Leopard

    Changelog:

    Update 1: Removed Bibarrell, Volbeat, Plusle, and Minun. Added Leopard.

    Update 2: Removed Raticate, Linoone, and Arbok.

    Yes, this is just the lowest depths of RU (this Gen's pseudo-NU).

    Volbeat and Bibarel are broken, especially together, with mischevious heart tail glow baton pass to simple bibarel getting a +6 special attack in 2 turns.
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    Ditto won't be Shit Tier when Imposter comes out. You might want to add Liepard, he's pretty terrible.

    I've seen some incredibly successful uses of Arbok. I'm not too sure about his placement on this list.

    Careful / Leftovers / Shed Skin
    - Gunk Shot
    - Earthquake
    - Coil
    - Rest
    252 HP / 6 Attack / 252 Sp. Defense

    This Arbok set would wreck this hypothetical tier.

    Linoone could also wreck this tier. He really shouldn't be in here.

    I really don't think you should be creating a tier based on your opinion of the Pokemon, tbh. You may find something useless and shitty and others may be able to use them with great skill

    We just have to wait for RU to break into two tiers, and the lowest of that tier would be this tier.

    Arbok can be used quite successfully. Take a look at MapCrimsonCora on YT.

    I disagree with adding liepard.

    While many see it weak, I agree, its defenses are crap but if trained properly that stab sucker punch would destroy this.

    Trust me, I've wrecked some teams with the kat.

    There is what, 1 steel type in a tier full of normal types? Thats probably not gonna work out, especially with ony 1 ghost tyoe (btw, bannette should be on the list). Also, I think coil and butterfly dance should be banned since they are probably overpowered in general.
