And then it wasent?Much more of over reaction than actualy beeing broken.Just give the meta time to adapt,Also cress is very healthy for the meta because remember that last boring only HO Meta?Yeah cress is the sole reason that meta dosent exist completely anymore.
Cresselia can set up Calm Mind many times as it may to its will. It can run a Hidden Power; Fire makes Escavalier a liability, and Fighting kills Absol and Crawdaunt. If that's not needed then it can simply cripple its opponent with T-Wave. Not to mention Absol, Esca, and Crawdaunt are its only good counters (Drapion and Spiritomb are fucking awful at doing this 'cause they're weaklings). Cresselia+Poliwrath is near unbreakable, since Poliwrath can simply put, deal with anything Cress can't. Cress can hurt back after CM's; she gets the bulk of God as well as much offensive prowess. Cress isn't exactly 100% broken as a wall, but its capabilities are simply ridiculous. It has only three true counters, and its capabilities as a wall are too good. It's overcentralizing.
