That's the kind of thing I'm trying to sort out. If that is the case and they run rampant, then there should be a quantitative answer to why they do so well.

For instance, if they do so well because of the support they get, then there shouldn't be a problem because that has nothing to do with their value individually. Also, if they run rampant because of the most likely opponents in a tier, it might not have the same applicability in this system because there is a much wider range of possible opponents. Magnezone in OU probably isn't worried about running into a Camerupt.

There is another possibility in terms of how I took typing into account. Offensively, the offensive type modifier I generated for Fighting is middle of the road at best. There could be an equation problem in terms of how I take types into account.

Lots of possibilities, but can't know until some hard data comes in.
