I appreciate how concise and deliberately worded the argument was. Don't get me wrong; I think the Sand Veil discussion is an important one to have. I just want to ensure that the arguments presented are not straw man points essentially stating, "we banned the Pokemon last time because we could live without Blaziken and Excadrill, but this time around we should ban the ability because we want Garchomp back." To put it simply, Blaziken and Excadrill without their broken abilities would not have been banned. Chomp, as cool as he is, has to play by the same rules.
Accepting the premise of this post, the Sand Veil discussion should stand alone; Garchomp merely distracts from the point in the sense that it keeps limiting the argument back to it rather than the ability as a whole.
