...I disagree, for Starmie tends to get walled by Blissey or Snorlax, and Alakazam can't really take a hit... ...they are OU, but not as much as those in the 'Very OU' tier IMO.

Also, do you think this should be stickied?

Knock Raikou down, in terms of usage it is around UU/BL now :/ that doesn't mean it's a great Pokemon, but it's easily countered by Blissey.

edit: Zapdos up, Gyarados down, Miltank isn't OU, Hariyama isn't OU, Porygon2 isn't OU, Vaporeon isn't OU, Ursaring is BL at best, Forretress down to BL. Didn't bother looking at the lowest stuff.

Aggron: I find that he does well in uu I would put him in good UU
scizor: very good poke. Should be Bl, good UU at the least.
Castform: has no buisness being in lesser NU. This thing can actually be used and has some special properties (weatherball). Suggest upgrade to NU.
Chimecho: actually quite good with heal bell and levitate. Should be lesser UU at least.
Miltank: this thing is a beast, Its killed entire teams for me. at least lesser OU
Lastly golem and rhydon should not be in the same catagory. I suggest you move rhydon up one, but moving golem down one is also possible.

Suggestion: these levels shouldn't really be called "tiers", since the tier system is sorted by base stat totals... Lati@s aren't tier 1 pokemon.

Why is Luvdisc in Tier 11...It's usable, and can show potential (possibly) in ver minor circumstances...

You seem to be missing my point. Yes, I agree that they're uber, but they're not "tier 1" pokemon.
