    Idk if it has been said or not, but what about doing pokemon by competitive battling tiers? You could start with that and maybe break it down further into the most common type of moveset by the pokemon? Like sweeper, wall, etc. So you could have all the common pokemon used as a sweeper in each tier or each common wall or something.

    The problem with this method is that only popular pokemon would be chosen, then eventually you run out of said pokemon and are stuck with stuff people have no interest in making POTW boring.

    I totally Agree with teccannon521, this topic is not for suggestion or for that matter advertising the sets you have made. Escpecially for uber pokemon, the tier they SHOULDNT cover, which the sets are pretty much known by everyone. and the new trainers dont gain anything from ubers anyway. Nor are ubers near as fun coming up sets with.

    I have to agree. Ubers suck when it comes to sets. They have such good movepools, you can pull the dream set, which is what everyone is going to do. ANd I like the random selection. It gives crap like Ludicolo a chance.

    I'm interested in writing a page on an upcoming pokemon page. How do I go about that.

    You learn EVs, natures and become a master of the OU metagame. Defeat your rivals, post great RMTs and prove yourself to be a great member of the community. Months later, get modded and gain respect of fellow mods. Then, assuming you still care, you must defeat Reno in mortal combat and steal the POTW from him in a battle not unlike this one.

    There can be only one.

    OK, seriously? Not even a mention of Curse for Vaporeon's entry? Not even under "other options"?

    I don't see why it would get a mention, seeing as how Vaporeon has a pitiful Base 65 Atk stat. It might be worth it if it's Atk was higher, but even then it doesn't have the moves to get past Pokemon like Jellicent and Ferrothorn.

    Scald offers a relatively good 30% chance to Burn, which cuts your opponent's Attack in half. Which makes you bulkier by subtraction without wasting a moveslot or turn.

    What about a trial voting system. Open a new thread and every day change the options while collecting the data over a period of time. A lot of people are actually against OU pokemon and favour NU/UU. If it is just OU then close it and we'll say no more about it.

    And please stop requesting this thread is not for requesting

    Oh and i know some of you guys will read this and then pick up your hammer of justice and send it crashing down upon my post with all your rage and hatred shattering it into little pieces of stupidity and shame, so i ask you to point out your objection calmly and we will talk about it reasonably unless anyone points out something which i agree with. Its just an idea so you dont have to take it as if i have insulted you.

    Goodbye and have a nice day!

    OK, Vaporeon I can kinda get, but no Curse for Flareon? Come on! Flareon has decent Special Defense, and it's Speed's already in the toilet, so why not?

    Because, doing it by voting would mean all the favourites are still done first and would leave us with months of crap near the end.

    It's about balance. Voting system will destroy that balance

    Just have to say.. There are enough "viable in OU" Pokemon for at least 4 years of POTW. I mean according to usage stats even around the 200's you have stuff like Cinccino, Tauros, Druddigon and Qwilfish all of whom have multiple OU usable sets they can run. Then there's stuff in the lower 300+ like Raticate and Arbok.. I could easily write half a dozen sets for Raticate. Raticate isn't that bad! Guts gives its Facade about as much power as Choice Band Groudon's Earthquakes (seriously).

    But I don't think a vote would be worth the trouble. Regardless of what we pick people are going to complain.

    I think (sorry if this isnt supposed to go here :/) Staraptor should go? Because alot of people use it, but then that would fall under popular.... I know. How about, you do the region flying types?

    Why do we always assume that pokemon is being used in OU? Umbreon's PotW makes it look like it's terrible, when it's a good wall in RU. Such bulkiness, being able to Heal Bell any Toxics, can pass Wishes, can boost with Curse, can BP Curses, it's AMAZING in RU.

    Because most players who use the POTW to help them with sets are new to the game, and thus play OU.

    That and I'm sure Reno has never played RU / UU before so he'd just have to ******** out something he doesn't know.

    Umbreon isn't even THAT great in RU lol. Giving Yanmega a free switch in is never good.

    Yeah, I guess the only place it can actually do something is NU, because Cress somewhat outclasses it.
