UL Stasis Developer Notes (June 2021)
A number of recent additions to the game have appeared since the last update, which includes new Pokemon and new moveset options. Here are the changes to UL Stasis
New A Tier Additions:
Talonflame has emerged in a big way on the scene ever since its Community Day. As one of the best set-up sweepers in the game, we decided to place it in the highest tier.
New B Tier Additions:
Abomasnow, Aromatisse, Bronzong, Dragalge, Drapion, Goodra, Lugia, Nidoqueen, Serperior, Slurpuff, Sylveon
Abomasnow was initially placed in the A tier but that may have been a slight over-tiering for it, as it is comparable to Alolan Ninetales in the B tier. Grass/Ice is a tough defensive typing to work with.
Aromatisse, Slurpuff, and Sylveon are three Charm users that play similar enough to Togekiss and Clefable to warrant B Tier placement. They would all likely be too affordable in the C Tier.
Bronzong was given B Tier consideration at the onset of the XL era, but ultimately landed in C Tier. With the new addition of Payback to its arsenal, this was enough to push it up the B Tier.
Dragalge and Goodra are two new Dragons on the scene. It remains to be seen how these Dragons fare in the Stasis meta, as other strong Dragon picks remain in C Tier, but for now we will start by tiering them at B.
The Poison Sting buff has made Drapion very comparable to Alolan Muk, and thus landed it in B Tier.
Lugia benefited from the buff to Dragon Tail and became a little bit too powerful for the C Tier.
Nidoqueen has become a significant threat in Ultra League thanks to the newly buffed Poison Jab and Poison Fang, and was a near instant choice for B Tier.
Serperior plays very similar to Meganium, and therefore joined it in the B Tier.
C Tier Pokemon that were considered:
Barbaracle, Crobat, Flygon, Ludicolo, Milotic, Muk (Kanto), Pangoro, Roserade, Skuntank, Slowbro (Galarian), Tentacruel
All of these Pokemon were put to a vote but ultimately stayed at the lowest tier, at least for the time being. We have our eyes on each of them as potential additions to the B Tier as more usage data comes through.
We hope you enjoy playing UL Stasis as much as we enjoy tiering it for you all!
