and faster encore. or something slower with a priotity move and an attack that gets it into range for KO with priority move. that set is "rightfully" countered in the sense of risk-free kill by just...

Re: banlist discussion

it might actually be better to just have the banlist as a recommendation instead of being universal, and only forced on gyms and official tournaments or something.

as the testing, even if everyone...

Re: banlist discussion

iirtrc*, it's the leader can make restrictions within reason, but the league's restrictions apply globally.

Re: banlist discussion

rotom-a is banned because it can't be brought on wifi without manipulation. I imagine it would be fine on shoddy or something. (the other two I guess could be kept on the list anyway?)

Re: banlist discussion

it suffers from 4-move-slot syndrome, though. it can do either, but not both. rain/rest/surf/beam is vulnerable to tricking a scarf or something, too.

ED: and you forgot politoed. :P

Re: banlist discussion

what makes manaphy's situation significantly different from garchomp's? it has instantaneous +2, reasonably good coverage, and not much else; or suffers 4mss.

also: zapdos does not wall +6 quick...

Re: banlist discussion

u-turn is too slow.

that said, you need +6 to 2hko infernape, means infernape is a decent counter. of all thing.

Re: banlist discussion

does that punch require two hits, or three? because if it's two, it can't just switch in, you know? still, how do you get +3 and CB at the same time?

Re: banlist discussion

enough stuff counters scizor, including heatran, which resists anything not names superower, outspeeds, and ohkos. (not that anyone's going to leave scizor in.) anything not 2hko'd by bullet punch,...

Re: banlist discussion

modest glaceon outspeeds max+ garchomp, and ohkos even yachechomp unless it's been investing heavily, so. it can also probably destroy the countercounter.

but that line of argument is probably...

Re: banlist discussion

speaking of scizor... I feel scizor overcentralizes the metagame. it makes me feel that any team I use that isn't liberally sprinkled with fire-type moves is inadequate. and occas swords dance scizor...

in battle tower, where stealth rock use isn't rampant, focus sash is probably better, actually, unless you're running into item clause. ice shard is not really an epic fail, though. it's great for...

Re: banlist discussion

and the problem arises when garchomp runs yache. that said, I'd love to see garchomp unbanned. yache berry isn't much of a problem when you can run multiple ice moves anyway.

Re: banlist discussion

it was, iirc, specifically a yache berry swords dance set that was problematic, destroying just about anything not named skarmory or bronzong, and frying those with fire blast.

Re: banlist discussion

the rotoms are due to inability to be brought on wifi; otherwise, rotom-a is basically a staple of OU.

and no apology necessary.

felt there was a need.

my proposed changes: strike = remove, bold = include.


the special forms can't be brought on wifi anyway, and platinum's been out for a while now.
