(UU) Under-Used, commonly referred to as "UU", designates Pokémon whose use is limited as they are not strong enough for general OU competition, usually due to sub-standard stats, movepools, easily exploitable weaknesses, or the existence of a stronger Pokémon that works in a highly similar way. For example, Mismagius is often classed as UU because Rotom's alternate forms possess higher defensive stats, a better movepool and a type combination that has 3 more resistances while having no extra weaknesses. UU Pokémon can be, and are, used in OU battles, but are usually underpowered here. These will include the following

Aggron

(NU) As the name implies, Never-Used, commonly referred to as "NU", is for Pokémon that have problems competing in UU due to poor stats and/or movepools, and thus are extremely rare to be used in battles. This is where most novelty Pokémon reside in tiers as well as Pokémon found early in a player's journey. They are generally only used in NU battles; however, Shedinja, which is often classed as NU, is often used in other tiers, most notably Ubers. Many NU Pokémon are common in Pokémon Contests and Pokémon Super Contests. This will include the following
Ampharos

(NFE)his tier is more commonly known as "NFE", and as the name implies, contains almost every Pokémon that has not yet reached its final evolution. It is a sub-tier of NU. Some NFE Pokémon, such as Rhydon are used in the lower tiers, as their stats are on par with some of the weaker evolved Pokémon. Also, the abilities of Hippopotas and Snover are the only way to set up permanent weather in the lower tiers, as their evolved forms are banned.
