Garchomp was still OU at the time of Suspect Ladder anyway and it was still allowed in tours so I see no reason to ban it from the tour finals.
I agree. During the whole season Garchomp was OU. And I had my teams built with Garchomp and I haven't been battling OU for a while now. So I have to make new teams that are valid since not having Garchomp changes the whole metagame. I think since this whole season started with Garchomp, it should end with using Garchomp in the metagame.
