    Not to be rude, but he's ranked No. 1 in OU usage, as of the most recent posts, unless they posted new ones.

    He doesn't overcentralize it, but I do stand that he'll get a suspect vote. I'd say staying OU, as well as the majority of battlers, but... Eh.

    Really? I don't check usage stats that much, but haven't seen that many...

    IIRC he was ranked #1 in usage for the people with under 900 rating points. In the 1337+ stats, Toed was first, iirc.

    I never have to many problems with Nite, typically I have SR up, Nite comes in on something, I switch to Porygon 2, it outrages which takes only half of Porygon2's HP and I 1HKO it with Ice Beam.

    If they have a rapid spinner, then I would imagine Dragonite is a little bit tougher, but anything with Priority can dent it, then find something faster then Nite that can KO it (like a Dragon or Mamoswine). It's not that tough, definitely not Uber.

    My Weavile destroys them, and if Dragonite is scarfed, he will most probably use Outrage so when Weavile bites the dust I bring out Metagross and watch him deal tiny amounts of damage.

    Scarfnite? I don't think I've ever fought one of those. SR weakness, so most people prefer haxorus.

    But Weavile and Mamoswine do make good checks for it. Especially Mamoswine, since it can use SR.

    Not even close to broken. Probably the very best pokemon against AI in the subway, but against human opposition its just a good OU pokemon.

  11. Dragonite: 11 Ban, 60 Do Not Ban, 3 Abstain = 15.49% Ban

    I think that speaks volumes.

    No, he's not broken. The main selling point of Dragonite is Multi Scale, and there are various ways of keeping that in check. I will say that the most dangerous of the sets would have to be the LumDD set. Forget Bulky DD, with the Lum Berry, you can't even cripple it with status.

    ^I'm glad it's not banned. It would be ridicooluss(liek my spehling) if it was. It's really not that hard to counter, and it faces problems with covering threats. Lum DD is awesome, i think it's the best set. Parashuffler is good though.

    If multiscale would made any attack do 1/2 damage (full hp no full HP) it would be broken but as it only work when stealth rock is down (you used roost) it isn't too broken

    but stealth rock is broken seriously I hate how stealth rock made too many pokemons useless! (like most bug/flying and articuno)
