I think Smogon has gotten really banhappy lately and it needs to stop.
Suspect testing six years after the fact is really, really odd. What are you going to learn from it? The fact that nobody complained when ADV was the primary focus because of "honor" seems foolish to me; honor doesn't matter when you're playing to win and if anyone was playing to win, I'd expect it to be Smogon. Even if "pros" refrained from using it in friendlies, I really can't see how an entire generation could go by without one play-to-win tournament being dominated by Baton Pass. "Honor" didn't keep Mewtwo from needing a hard ban, did it? This is a solution in search of a problem.
And what purpose is a suspect test going to serve? You're going to get two kinds of people in there; the ones who are interested in banning it, and newbs who don't know how to do it right hoping for a few wins in the tour. Already you can see that new people who don't know how to do Baton Pass right are losing over and over; what effect do you expect them to have in the actual tournament?
The only real solution is to skip the suspect test (because I think it's going to turn out to be a giant waste of time with no real data produced), and just get on with it. If there's a problem with BP, it'll be shown there. And some of you seem to be concerned with "wasting" a week or two... what is different now from all the other ADV tournaments? Why the current obsession with "getting it right"- is this going to be the last tournament ever? And most importantly, why did you wait six years to bring this up?
I wonder if Stealth Rock will be the last thing Smogon bans.
