    no.

    ps: it's "there's", a contraction of "there is", not theirs.

    man, you can't post stuff like this in here. blaziken's suspect tiering was defined by a month of suspect testing, you cannot just join smogon and expect it to get changed. i suggest you read FAQ and lurk more before you continue to post more, unless you want to get infracted/banned. dragonspiral tower is a great place to start off with for pokemon discussions.

    edit: ok suit yourself, just some advice.

    The reason Blaziken is banned outright is because Speed Boost Blaziken is released, therefore he is legal in standard play. Since Speed Boost has far more competitive viability than Blaze ever will, good players will prefer that ability for it, but the consequence is that it becomes almost impossible to stop with its terrific mixed attacking prowess, not to mention a huge power boost to Hi Jump Kick this generation that led to Blaziken as a whole being deemed too powerful.

    Technician Breloom is a separate issue. Technician is a Dream World ability that has not been released, so it is not legal in OU.
