What is this double standard? Why don't we go back and Ban Sand Veil in Gen IV as well, seeing nothing has changed between the two generations in how it can be abused?
I'm not getting into this debate (at least not now, I guess), but one can tell a "bs hax" in BW is much worse than in DPPt simply because teams have to be airtight nowadays. "Bs hax" is almost unbearable this generation, and Gliscor being an asshole really doesn't help anyone.
I find it silly to even suggest, if need be, banning/restricting those abilities using the Evasion Clause though, exactly because they never mattered
before BW, except for maybe Garchomp being a dick, and Evasion Clause goes all the way back to RBY.
