    Welcome to the Little Cup Suspect Voting thread. In this round, a select group of users qualified for voting rights by reaching the required ladder rating. These users are listed below.

    Qualified voters. (open)

    In the interest of time, we decided to skip the nomination stage altogether. For that reason, we will be voting on anything that is at all "questionable." We will be voting on the following Pokemon, listed in alphabetical order:

    Code:
    Carvanha
    Gligar
    Meditite
    Misdreavus
    Scraggy
    
    Voting will be held the same way that it has been in the past. For those unfamiliar with the proper format, a sample ballot has been provided.

    The same % requirements that applied to 4th generation suspect voting and 5th generation OU voting will apply for this vote. In order for a suspect to be banned, either a supermajority (2/3 + 1) or two simple majorities (1/2 + 1) is needed. Meditite and Misdreavus both received simple majorities in the last round, and therefore only need a simple majority this round to be banned.

    Remember that this is a moderated forum. Your vote will not show up after you post it. Don't worry, though, your ballot has been successfully submitted.

    Without further adieu, vote away!

    Barn all! I'm kind of pissed that I'm voting for gligar since it's a good thing to have in the meta (defensive versions anyways) but the acrobatics set is too good. Whatever.

    And yes, scraggy's broken.

    I don't think the other three really need justification at this point.

    Carvanha received 13/19 to ban, with 3 abstaining, meaning it received a 68.4% vote to ban, which surpasses the supermajority threshold. Carvanha is no longer LC-legal.

    Gligar received 11/16 to ban, with 5 abstaining, meaning it received a 68.75% vote to ban, which surpasses the supermajority threshold. Gligar is no longer LC-legal.

    Meditite received 12/19 to ban, with 3 abstaining, meaning it received a 63.1% vote to ban, which surpasses the majority threshold for the second round in a row. Meditite is no longer LC-legal.

    Misdreavus received 11/18 to ban, with 4 abstaining, meaning it received a 61.1% vote to ban, which surpassed the majority threshold for the second time in a row. Misdreavus is no longer LC-legal.

    Scraggy received 3/15, with 6 abstaining, meaning it received a 20% vote to ban, which fails to pass the majority threshold, meaning Scraggy will not be an automatic suspect next round, and will still require a supermajority or two plain majority votes in a row to ban.

    I would like to thank everyone who was involved with this round, and to congratulate our voters. We had great turnout this month in stats, due in no small part to the enthusiasm of our voters. For those of you who didn’t make it, better luck next time. The metagame’s going to shift a lot with these new bans, and I hope to see you all when next we vote! Except emma because all she does is abstain -.-
