    Why not just allow Ninetales, Politoed, Tyranitar and Hippowdon, as long as they are not using Drought, Drizzle and Sand Stream respectively?

    Yea, just to emphasize, bans focusing on banning only the abilities are needlessly complex on PO and therefore we're just banning the Pokemon.

    So...since this ladder was put up for all the people whining about weather wars in ou...you guys are doing your best to make this ladder popular right?

    ;)

    Thank you Aldaron. Hopefully I'll be not busy to start playing, now that theres a fun OU again in clear skies. Good thing I have my OU team, it's still taking me time to build a team for the other tiers :(

    300 people on the ranks so far, not bad, keep it up ^_^

    Edit: I edited my RMT to include a CS version, now I don't know where exactly CS RMTs should be posted if they will be posted, but I do encourage you to make them anyway and let the mods sort this mess out.

    420 people, and the first clear skies RMTs are coming up, keep it up :)

    Yache SD Chomps are probably gonna be the most used out of the rest, but surpsingly I rarely see chomps in my battles. Maybe they don't know its legal?

    I played the ladder a bit and made it to about #5, although that's no accomplishment by any means. Either way, I really like the banlist that Aldaron has put together, it's much better than the one in OU.

    I'm 4 on the ladder, so we definitely don't have enough people on it.

    Basically, many people are opposed to abilities such as Tyranitar's "Sand Stream" that automatically induce permanent weather. As a result, a tier called "Clear Skies" was created, where Pokemon with those abilities are banned.

    I'm gonna check this out. just 2 questions:

    1.since this tier exists, does this mean weather abilities can FINALLY stop being nominated as suspects?

    2. are the weather rocks(damp rock, heat rock, etc) going to be banned as well?

    Only auto weather is banned, so feel free to use the weather rocks and the respective move. Too answer number one, I personally don't care about BW OU (The standard weather filled one) anymore, I won't speak for anyone else, but I personally will leave that hell hole alone. ^^
