    Scrafy is OU, everything else is NU. KlinKlang's coverage is total shit, Braviary is just another Normal/Flying type, and Beartic suffers from being Ice type.

    First up, I was wondering if you could maybe organize it to something like:
    Uber
    Garchomp
    Excadrill

    OU
    Blaziken
    Salamence
    Hydraigon
    Dragonite

    BL
    Infernape
    Charizard

    UU
    Alomomola
    Shiftry

    NU
    Emboar


    So, I think it'll be Scrafty OU, especially because of Moxie. Gigagear is definitely UU, since it's simply outclassed by Natorrei--unless BL is a playable tier.
    Tsunbear, UU, that ice thing is nasty.
    Braviery--I've going to say BL.

    It's not a wise idea AT ALL to use unconfirmed names, you know.

    Anyway, Zuruzukin will undoubtedly be OU. It pretty much fits the definition of "tank" with its outstanding bulk and usable Attack. With the right setup (Dragon Dance or Bulk Up) and Rest + Shed Skin, it'll f*** your s***. Backwards.

    Gear Change is nice and everything, but the movepool is EXTREMELY lacking, so Gigigiaru will be UU, maybe even NU.

    Braviary (that name's confirmed) and Tsunbeaa will probably be BL and UU, respectively. They have below-threshold Speed, and their typing (which bear a lot of common weaknesses) undermine their otherwise usable bulk. It's upsetting, because of their great Attack stats.

    @Sharking:IGN Also, there are real names on that list. So its either the guy who posted the list is a really lucky guesser for the twenty or so names that he got right(like that's what happened) so there is no point in denying it.

    Zurukinin-OU, this is power. I don't even need to explain.

    Gigigear- NU, a good set-up move is useless when you have the moves to back it up. It's very similar to Butterfly Dance Butterfree, in that, it can't back itself up. UU, if it gets lucky.

    Braviary (This is Wargle, not Waruvial. Waruvial is the Red Crocodile.)-UU or one tier below Staraptor, who will most likely be BL due to Reckless.

    Tsunbear- NU, as good as this pokemon may look to you guys, I don't see it in the metagame. It loses Twenty Five Percent on the Switch-In if SR is up, it's too slow to be really useful, and it's taking place in a very Fighting-centric Metagame. Plus Scizor is going to be UU, and can easily force the bear out.

    Don't change anything official until there is confirmation, the List was made after the IGN reveal, so you can't be sure.

    Much love to Zurr

    100% agree, but Butterfly Dance Butterfree had potential. Compoundeyes make Sleep Powder 97.5% accurate, and with this golden set up move, it can do something.

    Once again agree, but SCIZOR IS NOT UU!!!! Where the hell did you hear that outragous idea!?!

    That's a fine niche and all, but it is still taken out too quickly, and it doesn't have enough coverage to run a substitute.

    Huh, thought it would be, Scizor with Swords Dance is still power.

    Much love to Zurr
