Trade evos will be considered, but that is all trading will be used for. With this in mind, all trade evo Pokes are tiered with the assumption that they reach their final form. This may change, in which case, I will add '(no evo)', to the Poke's name and give him a lower placement.
While this is supposed to be an 'efficient' tier list, this is not one for a speedrun. There is a difference, you know. However, you know the (Exca)drill: Pokemon that help you beat the game faster go up higher.
Unlike in Pokemon B/W, TM's are not infinite, so obviously, the more demand a certain TM has, the less likely a Pokemon has of obtaining said TM. Of course, TM's that can be gotten in infinite supply(i.e. Those bought at the Veilstone Department Store)may always be considered. Also, tutored moves may be considered, since they are not single use, but they require shards, so there is some doubt on their usefulness in an efficient setting. Also, HM utility is of more value in this game than it is in B/W, so Pokes that normally would be lower are higher thanks to their HM utility(e.g. Bibarel and Tropius)
Tier List is now ordered.
Have at it.
Also, follow my PT if you want. I did it because of the tier list dealie.
