Yanmega: Not Ban
At the start of RU I would've loved to see this thing banned, but as people discovered more and more counters to it, such as Munchlax it quickly became more manageable. The speed boost set does not have anywhere near enough power to sweep through all but the most beaten down teams. The SpecsLens set is what leans this pokemon over the broken line, but the fact that it is choice locked, outsped by a lot of other pokemon and needs team support to allow it to keep switching in and out makes me wonder if its worth it, seeing as if I see Yanmega in the team preview I make it my absolute goal to keep rocks on the field, keeping it in check.
Shockingly I've seen a lot less of venomoth than I did after the initial hype of it, and I have no Clue why. If anything in this tier is broken it is undoubtedly Venomoth. It has everything it needs to be the most threatening set up sweeper in the tier. Sleep, QD (best boosting move in the game), Tinted Lens (fantastic sweeping ability), the ability to baton pass its boosts to more threatening sweepers such as Zam, and finally recovery moves. Also as an added bonus, absorbs toxic spikes... Ban.
I turned on my Charmander pants came off.
There is no such thing as over-prediction, you just predicted wrong.
