    With Hoopa and Hoopa-Unbound on the horizon in Japan, the Tiering Council has decided that we would like to take a look at both of these mons before their official release date, but we need your help to test them out!

    A few days ago, I launched the OU Theorymonning Ladder on our server for trial runs, but I thought I may as well make a thread to start discussion on it. So far, Hoopa has been discussed on the podcast (see here for the start of the talk) but we still need a lot of testing done on both forms before making a final decision.

    Before you start, here are both of their base stats:

    [​IMG] Hoopa: 80 / 110 / 60 / 150 / 130 / 70
    [​IMG] Hoopa-U: 80 / 160 / 60 / 170 / 130 / 80

    (Inconsistent image sizes fml)

    To start debate, here are a few things we need to question about both forms!
    • What tier best suits them both?
    • Do they have a significant impact on any metagame, especially OU?
    • Are either of them ban worthy?
    • How do their stats affect their sets and playstyle?
    • What are its most viable move options?
    • How does it fair against opposing types of teams?
    • How does it deal with the ever present fairy type as of gen 6?
    • Does it's relatively low speed have a harsh impact on how it should be played?
    • What role will it tend to do the best?

    No, this is to test it from a competitive standpoint.

    Hoopa is an event legendary. People like it so much because it was only just introduced and everyone is a) trying to see how good it is and b) trying to get one.
