Tapu Lele and Celesteela should be at least in A tier while i don't think Koko should be in S because it becomes much more weaker during Terrain wars and it is not guaranteed to stay on the field for a long time due to its lack of bulk and potential recoils from a move or LO


I must give some credit to Tapu Bulu too, because it hits really really hard in this meta where many of the most used pokemon are specially bulky, this guy can OHKO or 2HKO them even after an Intimidate. I would put it in B+ tier

I think @Marcusube uses it on his team. Bottom of the barrel tier. =)

@Justin I'll give my thoughts once I get into the metagame. Currently working with Smogon until I get a copy of the game

Well in my 12 month + break from pokemon coming back to sun & moon, i'd say toxapex and araquanid both look like rather strong pokemon though people can correct me i've only been playing gen7 since Wednesday, being eu is really annoying Sad Other than those 2 weather combo's could be strong. Not sure how easy legendless teams are going to be to use this year (main reason i didn't play last year, other than new job) with the Tapu's and UB's dominating the speed charts

Winning a Pokemon battle is not so much about being a step ahead of your opponent but rather being 2 steps behind them
