YAY. Joy, so much happiness. I HATED SALAMENCE.
Now i dont have to worry about bastards like him. On the other hand, i wonder how this will effect the meatagame?

There would probably be alot more stall teams running around. Also, there would probably be less scizors running around now, and more flygons. Also, I bet shaymin's would rise; in which they'd probably be running HP fire more.

Well...those are my thoughts anyway~

They are totally changing the meta game now. I do hate Salamence because it is annoying but still I DO NOT think it should be uber.

Oh snap good thing that when I herd mence was suspected to be uber the teams I made didn't use him. Well since it's uber more Stall teams will be used as well as us seeing more grass, dragon, and I think water type usage.
Edit hmmm Moltres is still UU

Moltres is not as effective this metagame as it was previously... the reason being is that Froslass, who easily got up 2 layers of spikes before, is now BL, meaning that Moltres can no longer get the 2HKO on Milotic with a Fire Blast followed by a quick HP [Grass]

Ah... Salamence was always annoying to face, and I'm looking forward to a metagame without him =)

Stall, as someone previously stated, is going to be incredibly popular, as they won't have to deal with the best stall breaker in the entire game, well OU that is.

I anticipate Toxic stall Gliscor will become more popular, as it is an amazing stall breaker. Infernape usage will also go up, and Sub Seed Shaymin, too, as that is a great stall breaker, taking on Blissey with Leech Seed, Skarm with HP [Fire], and Water types like Swampert with Seed Flare

NOOOOO! Sad

Now I have to change all those teams I've made! Mad
Eventually, half the OU Pokemon will be in Ubers...

It's not as good as Salamence, but it will go up for sure

Salamence, an uber? No, that can't be.

They make him uber because ALOT of babies and whiners want to complain about him being so strong and fast. Salamence is a good pokemon, and I like him. I don't use him in my team though, but my friend does. He's against this.

Whats next? Are people like most of these babies here are going to complain about Tyranitar next since Salamence has been banned?

I say it's pretty ridiculous to have Salamence as an uber just because hes fast and strong.

These uber decisions are getting out of hand, why not just make certain sets uber, like say Latios/las with soul Dew uber but not the whole pokemon itself. If salamence with DD is good enough for uber , then fine, but I don't want to be restricted from using pokemon I like. Smogon is just a website after all, they didn't make pokemon.

Well, Salamence did have insane stats (comparable to other dragon types) - And was always a top tier OU. Although I never used them, I never had a problem with them either (Since I always ran a porygon2 as a gyaramence counter.) But thats just me.

OK guys... Salamence is Uber because it has no Counter, not because it is speedy and powerful... No Pokémon can safely switch into it because every Pokémon is either fainted in 1 or two hits with the appropriate move.

Tyranitar becoming banned? You guys are crazy haha... T-Tar cannot go mixed near as efficiently as Salamence, nor is he as fast. Plus, Salamence has a way better ability and a typing that doesn't have 7 weaknesses.

It does make a lot of sense that Salamence was voted Uber. The impact it makes simply by not being in the metagame is so huge that it's a testament to that fact. Nothing in OU is even close to being as good as what mence could do. With a Dragon Dance, mence was the best sweeper in OU, and when he was running a mixed wallbreaking set, he was the best wall breaker in OU. Infernape is a good wallbreaker granted, but even he has defensive pokes that he can't take down, like Cresselia and Vaporeon. The closest thing mence ever had to a counter even was Porygon2, who still couldn't really safely switch in on DDmences outrage after it dances.

Scizor is actually a fantastic Pokémon in Ubers... It is an excellent revenge killer and resists all of the Ice Beams and Outrages/Draco Meteors that are thrown around so much.

Imo he is actually better in Ubers than OU, but just because he is it doesn't change the fact that Scizor has quite a few counters in OU like Heatran, Gyarados, Rotom-A... all very common Pokémon

Lol, Salamence wasn't exactly a stall-breaker, it was a wall-breaker, a whole different thing... stall will not see a rise by much, the suspect testing shows that Heatran will go up, Scizor goes down, and stall didn't really go up that much... although some people say it will, personally, me and a good amount of other people that are good battlers on Smogon agree that stall won't go up by much... and the new metagame is going to be really boring, it'll be all based around FWG cores... which isn't very fun...

Do I really care? No, not really.

If I want to use a Salamence in future I will be doing - and I suspect I'm not the only one thinking that way.

This why I prefer common sense tiering as opposed to Smogon telling me what the tiers are.

It makes more sense for Salamence to be Uber than Manaphy and Wynaut.

lol I think it's quite funny how Wynaut is allowed in Little Cup but no where else except Ubers... I think that's because moves do a lot more damage in LC than anywhere else so it has more trouble taking hits
