Criteria for Tier Placings

The following are the criteria to be met when ranking Pokemon for Ranked Singles.

Tier Criteria
SS Tier SS Tier Pokemon have great offensive stats and movepools, are easy to use, and can make any team they're part of stronger. These Pokemon are often setup sweepers that have an easy time setting up with their boosting moves.
S Tier As the weeks go by and the metagame develops, Pokemon can go back and forth between SS and S Tier. These Pokemon are still solid additions to your team and are essential to Ranked Battle.
A Tier Pokemon in A Tier are often the best of their type, but are usually outclassed by Pokemon in the SS and S Tier. These Pokemon also often have great type matchups against SS and S Tier Pokemon.
B Tier B Tier Pokemon are often versatile and have effective builds, but there are generally better options in the higher tiers.
C Tier C Tier Pokemon offer good moves and stats but are often locked in specialized builds. These Pokemon have specific niches in the metagame and are outclassed by Pokemon in the higher tiers.
UR Icon UR (Unranked) Pokemon are not currently legal for ranked battle however may be valid in certain online competitions. When made available these Pokemon will surely shake up the metagame.

Contributions to a Battle

These Tiers are determined by how drastically a match is altered by a Pokemon being on the field. Whether it be Redirection, Support, or a strong Offensive presence, a Pokemon's impactfulness determines its placement on our list.

Team Synergy is Taken into Account

The criteria for best Pokemon also take into account team synergy or how well each Pokemon works in conjunction with its teammates.

Tera-Type Potential

The potential of Pokemon Terastallizing is also taken into account as this mechanic not only gives it an extra STAB of a different type, it can also remove its glaring weaknesses and give it new resistances.

Smeargle is overpowered because it could learn the moves lock on/mind reader (guarentees the next move to hit) and gillotine/sheer cold/fissure (instantly kills but has low accuracy) and it could Ohko easily in 2 turns

22 Anonymous5 months

Serperior and Iron Crown should be higher. Serperior can boost its SpA just by attacking with a powerful move and Iron Crown has good bulk and SpA.
