    Excadrill has proved to be too powerful for OU battles. Salamence was a different case as it relied on having a perfect IV in Speed as well as high Attack and Special Attack IVs. Most gym leaders had dragon counters on their teams and Salamence still had a 4x weakness to Ice attacks and 2x damage by Stealth Rock.
    With Sand Rush ability doubling its speed in a sandstorm, perfect Speed is not needed. Sword Dance doubles its Attack allowing it to often easily sweep teams that can't take it down in the first turn. It has a whopping nine resistances and two immunities including Toxic Spikes and a 4x resistance to Stealth Rock meaning if you can counter it, it can simply switch out with little damage. Add to all this that it can also serve the role of spinner on your team.
    While it's true that we have our own tiers here, we rely on Smogon for their superior battle experience and adjust the tiers here to account for difficulty of breeding perfect IVs & Hidden Powers and factor in the lack of legendaries in our battles generally allowing more pokemon that would be relegated to UU to join our OU to fill roles that Heatran or Celebi might take up in Smogon's tiers.

    Agreed. But it does mean a bit of re-planning. Oh well. Seebs.

    It's hard to just 'create' tiers. Smogon spent months suspect testing pokemon. There are still pokemon that are still in limbo that they haven't gotten to yet. It's not as easy as going "I thing x pokemon should be OU." The best we can do is as Deneves said, use their tiers and modify it to fit our needs.

    Yeah, my sand storm team can't be used in the gyms anymore. My Excadrill replacement is a legendary poke, lol.

    Guys, really bad news for my Gym. My Wi-Fi has busted completely, only a week after moving and getting it, and to make matters worse, my DS has finally given up on life, meaning it alsdo no longer works. I have to leave the Gym inactive depsite having 4 fully trained members on Black ,before my now-dead DSv packed in. if its the worst case scenario, I might have to step down from the Gym...

    Shame. I hope you get a new one soon.

    No, it couldn't come to that! I'm sure you'll get it sorted- I mean, Mancer did, and he's been off wifi since he joined, I think. But now he's got it!

    I have a team bred, and 5 of 6 main finalists fully ev trained with decent IV's, just now I'm practically ready, I have no wi-fi. it'll be sorted. When I can afford it as I have my own router from my parents, as their one didn't support my DS. As for the new DS, hopefully I'll get one for Christmas. If not I'll scavenge the money to buy one.
