    seriously guys, tyranitar will stil lbe used for a while, sand or not. You guys keep acting like prediction has no effect in the metagame. I was able to get a tension tyranitar working for a while (but he didn't hive fire blast.....T_T ferrothorn...)
    Yep we should ban baton pass, and weather too. Oh and Trick Room, I'm tired of having to worry about Trick Room all the time. Just ban the move Trick Room, and prankster, it's broken. Ban all status moves on prankster users, they're too cheap. Oh and ban Probopass to it's so cheap. Just ban everything except Magikarp with splash.
    Well, actually Blaziken isn't really Uber because some people whined about how they were getting owned by it. I mean, it doesn't stand a chance in the Uber enviroment.

    It's an idiotic choice which serves no purpose. Bluffing a Sand team? What the hell does that achieve? All it does is make your opponent think they have to get themselves into a weather war, only to realise you're being an idiot and not running the main beneficial aspect of Tyranitar this generation.

    Many people have stated in this thread that Sandstream is almost a necessity on TTar these days - it allows it to check Latios, and the fact it can support your team with weather is one of the main reasons it's actually used at all this Gen. Without Sandstream, Tyranitar would be a mediocre, mid/low OU Pokemon.

    okay,so sandstorm helps Tyranitars special defense,but makes it unusable on anything that isnt a sandstorm team. so thats why people use Unnerve,cuz its not Sand stream,and no,it isnt idiotic to choose a Pokemon with great stats as a wallbreaker and then avoiding its ability that may hurt the rest of the team.

    . Metagross has very similar stats to Ttar and DOESNT provide any sort of weather and Earthquake is also,"everywhere" in OU and more people are starting to run Fire moves on things to counter steels,does that mean it isnt used? NO,in fact,i myself am running a Metagross as part of my offensive core.

    Tyranitar isn't bad, it is just that hippowdon is better. He can slack off, stealth rock and EQ and be fine. Tyranitar can stone edge and ohhhh. T-tar was KOed by a fighting move

    The only similar purpose they serve is to initiate Sandstorm. If you had cared to do any research of the sort, you'd notice Tyranitar is higher in usage than Hippowdon, with good right.

    Hippo was KO'ed by Grass Knot, Hydro Pump, Draco Meteor. TTar lived all these.

    Hippo is better than Ttar...?
    Tyranitar has really gotta love his ability...He's the best at holding his own ground after he's switched in, he gets a sp defense boost with it (even though that doesnt solve his ground, fighting, steel type problems, but it damn straight solves his grass and water ones) and he's still a beast attacking. Now granted I use hail and i hate him to death just because i always see him, but facts are facts and i can't lie about them just cuz i don't like him.

    But most of these are so common due to Ttar... There is the possibility that someone could use a toxic stall Ttar or b-pass in speed + attack boosts so that all (with the exception of breloom if you toxic stall) of these pokemon were rendered useless... You could also band it just for revenge killing with pursuit or something else.

    Ttar outclasses hippowdon as it can actually do somthing. Even if it doesn't do it very often. Ttar gives boosts to other pokemon as well, and there aren't any sandstorm restrictions by tiers, this is why it's #2 on usage lists.

    Ice moves and switching. Two very common things.
