Wynaut is banned because it has shadow tag, which is a broken ability, not because it evolves into wobbufett. Garchomp was deemed suspect for being overcentralizing, a quality it does not share with gabite or gible.
NFE of OU pokemon were not considered OU, they were just banned from UU.
I know its confusing but it won't be once UU is fixed and gabite is no longer banned from UU.
