People who believe the suspect is uber should be laddering with the best possible team utilizing the suspect despite the possibility of that team becoming obsolete by the end of the month. Doing so would help persuade other players to vote for uber, simply by beating their brains out with said team.
As such, I've voted OU because I didn't see a single team abuse Skymin to the point where I believed it to be uber. That and I think it will be an easier to task to revisit a ban as opposed to revisiting an unban.
You actually make a good point. The bottom line for me, and many others I have spoken with, though, is that it's hard to find enough time to make a real team already, so why even potentially waste time? If there was a suspect ladder, I might have thrown something together to meet voting criteria, but there wasn't. I could have made a Skymin team for the standard ladder, just for the sake of beating into people's heads that Skymin should be uber, but I didn't feel like that would be worth my time.
I guarantee you all, however, that if this thing stays OU, we will see a significant rise in usage.
