Back on Yanmega, I think that some things look better on paper than they do in practice. I'm sure you've used in OU at some point or another, but if you have I'd assume it wasn't against some of the "upper-crust" players, some more skilled in adapting to foreign situations, if I guess that's what you could call it. Not to demean you, but some of the higher skilled battlers around here have conformed to the idea of tiers and the tiering system (most of them have even voted for/on it.) Again, thanks for being so kind, there are other people around here who can be pretty rowdy (myself included.)
Basically, a lot of people who are misinformed about the system tend to go power only and create no ingenuity with their sets, then bash other pokemon from the other tiers as inferior, when chances are they never even played with them before. And since I tend to hang out in the UU/RU/NU sections of the system, it bothers me a lot when people misconstrue it.
If you play the lower tiers, such as RU, you can't say Yanmega is fantastic in every tier just because it's good in RU. It's the same in a different sense, Quagsire is great in OU, but it's pretty bad somewhere like RU. The metagames are different, so I'm kind of being lead out as to the validity of your opinion.
Hello, um, sorry for the ridiculously long wait, but the next chapter of 'The Path Towards Home' is up. I'd have done it sooner, but I've just returned from a holiday in France, so I didn't really have access to a computer there.
