Slowbro's not OU.
now that i think about it, blaze is already uber, so the final decision is made. in OU, its still a useful counter for the abundance of chlorophyllites and rain abuse sets (besides the occasional thunder, which wont OHKO it). not to mention that it works offensively and defensively and can be mixed in sweep strategies.
altaria is definitely MUCH more useful this gen, and i think it could be pushed to MU if we analyzed it
PS: i usually spin as a lead. its rare that i get more than 1 rocks user
Maybe we should just leave it at that. Everyone has their opinions (and voice them quite strongly) and nothing we say is going to change the decision made by our Smogon overlords.
Also, after checking Altaria out, I can say it is quite definitely looking awesome. Cotton Guard + Roost? WIN!
cotton guard is probably the 2nd best booster in the game.
I'm assuming Quiver Dance is the best?
that or shell smash
I see Slowbro on about once or twice, every 10 teams I fight. Thats seems OU to me.

yo its used in OU
that makes is OVER USED
shadow, OU literally means "Over Used". it brings me back to a point i made months ago that usage vs. function is not a factor in ratings anymore because they dont know the difference.
they try and force using a set comprised of the 50-65 OU pokes, limiting the strategies and creating a league of finding which of those pokemon work the best on one another without taking any other outside factors into account.
they have yet to explore 80% of the eviolet pokes, and they definitely ignore cloud nine/Air Lock, even though weather rules OU/Ubers, no question.
oh, and i still think clefable should be BL because of its overall usefulness and its over-abundance in UU. i see no reason why to keep it out with the current set MU/BL's around
i saw it all the fucking time
Haha, Kirbx getting a taste of his own medicine.
Really? I doubt its that good, but I could be wrong.
And slowbro is OU moron, go away no one likes you and your facts.
You still haven't faces the Gyrados and Salamence.
Stone Edge. Even if they switch in on a High Jump Kick or something it's a 2HKO. A OHKO after certain boosts too. I would present the damage calcs, but the Smogon website seems to have taken a dump and impaled itself.
watch you be a mod or some shit there
Again, sorry for completely dismantling your argument and proving how powerful this fire chicken really is.
Haha. I liked watching this argument.

Sub me, I'll sub you
Haters don't hate you. They hate themselves because you're a reflection of what they want to be.
Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past....You must fight just to keep them alive
or the record, I really didn't know what I was talking about, excuse my moronicness
Latios this needs to be banned though, but I have bigger issues with the current tiers
-Wobuffet: switch into wobbuffet with your own wobuffet. have fun
-Garchomp: sure. evasion in OU sand plus its monstrous stats and genuinely hard to counter type give it too big of a nudge and throws it up on the uber shelf.
-Latios: draco meteor specs. do i even have to say more?
-Deoxys-D: really? this thing? this is countered by numerous UU's. why is it even being tested?
-Deoxys-S: again, countered by those same UU's. seriously deoxys. only your attack forme is uber at this point.
-Kyurem: stealth rocks. scizor. ferrothorn. forretress. volcarona. does this thing have any MORE checks that it needs to fill to be considered OU? it seems like its perfectly fine in OU and shouldn't me moved where its big bros kyurem white and black hang.
well, that's my take on it.
