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.
im for testing this system if its only testing it at this point because i have a feeling that more then one of these pokemon is going to be moved up or down in value
