Infernape

Typing: Fire / Fighting
Stats:
HP: 76
Atk: 104
Def: 71
SpAtk: 104
SpDef: 71
Spe: 108

Tier: OU


There are several reasons for this possible downgrade to UU

#1. His attacking stats just don't hit as hard as they used to, due to the power creep and defensive creep in BW and BW2
#2. Relatively frai, 76 / 71 / 71 defenses + common weaknesses to water, ground, flying and psychic.
#3. Most of his old counters / checks have worked their way down into UU, such as Suicune, Azelf, Kingdra, Zapdos, Togekiss, Swampert and Flygon
#4. Fairly predictable sets.
#5. Milotic, Dusclops and Claydol are examples of UU pokemon that can easily keep Infernape in check. Even Machamp can keep it in check. Also, Alakazam's departure from UU into OU gives Infernape what would be a strong standing in UU.
#6. It could possibly have a positive effect on the metagame.

I just think that while it's still usable in OU, it would be much more at home in UU, where it has similar stats with multiple pokemon.
What do you guys think?

Voting will end once one of the results reaches 7 votes

Definetly down. Other fire types can easily fill his spot in OU

Hmm...I think it should be kept in OU because of its excellent attack (104), Special attack (104) and Speed (108). More importantly, it has the powerful move Flame Blitz!!!
