magic9mushroom: <-- Didn't know that Rayquaza Mega Evolves without needing a Mega Stone. Some of us aren't up to speed with new-gen developments. Jun 11, 2015 14:20:15 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Now my "What." is directed at GameFreak because jesus christ the powercreep in ORAS legends. Jun 11, 2015 14:39:00 GMT -8
piexplode: Add in that it has impressive bulk, and an ability that reduces its weaknesses (leaving it without even an exploitable 2x weakness for example) and a powerful and versatile moveset, and you start to get the picture Jun 11, 2015 20:03:10 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: Outrage, Draco Meteor, and Moonblast are all powerful, 2x SE and possessed (with STAB, even) by several Ubers. I think you meant "4x" weakness? Primal Groudon looks like it'd be even worse if it could hold an item. Jun 11, 2015 21:13:13 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: But yeah, I was already thinking "ugh powercreep" when I thought that Mega Rayquaza needed a Stone and that Primals were incompatible with Megas. Now I'm just thinking "whyyyyy". Jun 11, 2015 21:15:35 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: I think the way they should go with the tiering is to rename the current "Ubers" "superused" or something and then make Mega Ray and maybe Arceus/the Primals actual Ubers. That'd separate out the dual current meanings of "Ubers". Jun 11, 2015 21:18:25 GMT -8 *
piexplode: Yeah I meant 4x. And some people think on a similar line to you. Check out http://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/re-initial-ou-tiering.3539811/ and http://www.pokemonperfect.com/forums/index.php?threads/pp-oras-ubers-tournament-2.3290/ Jun 12, 2015 5:36:40 GMT -8
magic9mushroom: I mean, considering that Ubers was originally created to house RBY Mewtwo, the question is really not "does Mega Rayquaza belong in Ubers", but "do all these other things belong in Ubers". Jun 12, 2015 21:54:52 GMT -8
piexplode: indeed. Just sent this to fireburn, the tier leader. http://pastebin.com/QydH1h6y Jun 12, 2015 23:10:20 GMT -8
