Pokémon Tiers List - Updated: 24rd January 2010

We're using Smogon's, thus they take the credit for the list. If you want to whine about that contact me via private messages; don't start anything in this thread. Anyways, but why if there's one in Aura's Ultimate Pokémon Guide? Because it's fairly outdated, and a separate thread for quick searching and questions only about tiers is more reasonable. This should also clear some questions about tiers and what Pokémon are being banned from certain tournaments.

I'll try to update this every other month or so.


Tiers

Uber: Pokémon who are too strong and are banned from the OU enviroment to keep a fair gameplay level.
OU - Overused: The most used Pokémon due to their effectiveness. Standard tier.
BL - Borderline: Strong Pokémon who are used occasionally. This Pokémon aren't as strong as OU, but they're still too strong for the UU enviroment.
UU - Underused: Pokémon who are deemed weaker than those in OU. Nothing is stopping you from using them there though.
NU - Neverused: Pokémon who are deemed too weak.
NFE - Not Fully Evolved: Pokémon who aren't in their last stage of their evolutionary line, rendering them unusable. However there are some Pokémon who can still be effective in the UU, NU and occasionally OU enviroments.

The Limbo is a temporary placement in which the Pokémon in there are being tested for deciding in which tier they should go.

Pokémon in Bold were changed into that tier recently.
Pokémon in Red are being subject of testing to being changed into another tier.

I hope Garchomp gets moved backed to OU... perfect member for my sandstorm team!

Umbreon and Cresselia are too good to be in UU, but they're there because of their usage rate

I think Staraptor, Gallade, and Yanmega (especially) have the potential to be OU! (but not quite)
