Pokemon tiers are classes of pokemon, based on potential and usage. The tiers are as follows:

Uber- Pokemon in this tier are deemed too powerful for Overused (OU), or Standard play. Ubers are Arceus, Darkrai, Deoxys (all forms*), Dialga, Garchomp**, Giratina, Groudon, Mewtwo, Mew, Wobbuffet*, Ho-oh, Kyogre, Latias, Latios, Lugia, Palkia, Rayquaza, Shaymin (Sky Form***), and Wobbuffet****).

*Deoxys Speed Form was considered for OU play, due to having balanced stats, but is too good of a lead Pokemon.

**Garchomp can overwhelm the majority of OU teams so it is being considered for the Uber tier.

***Shaymin Land Form suffers a major inferiority complex to Celebi, another OU, but its alternate form is much more powerful.

****Wobbuffet's moveset, ability, and stats make it too deadly for OU play.Shaymin Land Form suffers a major inferiority complex to Celebi, another OU, but its alternate form is much more powerful.

OU- Overused are the most powerful and commonly used Pokemon that aren't Uber. Ex. Blissey, Bronzong, Gyarados, Metagross, Salamence, Skarmory.

Borderline, or BL- Not an actual battling enviroment, Pokemon in this "tier" are too powerful to be Underused, but can't really compete in OU. Ex. Articuno, Charizard, Crobat, Empoleon.

Moderately Used, or MU- The upper tier or Underused. Ex. Absol, Blastiose, Gardevoir, Hitmonchan.

Underused, or UU- This tier inclues Pokemon that aren't strong or popular enough to be in a higher tier. Ex. Altaria, Linoone, Pikachu w/ Light ball.

Never Used, or Nu- Pokemon that aren't good enough to compete even in UU.
