I haven't played UU in a while, but
With the recent ban of Sand Veil and Snow Cloak
, how would people react to an unbanning of Snover and (possibly) minihippo (well, maybe it'll require a stout ban lol) from the tier?
Notable changes since the original ban:
Froslass cannot bs its way to a miss and can only bs its way with Cursed Body (which better and worse in some respects).
Glaceon is forced to run Ice Body.
Mamoswine is not in the tier.
Gligar is forced to run Immunity or Hyper Cutter.
Cacturne is forced to run Water Absorb.
A slew of new Pokemon exist - Chandelure, Bronzong, Mienshao, Scrafty, and Tornadus (Rain Dance) - and each has some way to screw over hail.
Especially for the sake of hail, I'd recommend reading some of the paragraphs of the original ban
to get a feel for what the meta was like. There's a great significance in the fact that every single post mentions Snow Cloak and Froslass and all but one mention Mamoswine.
