    Garchomp is going to be everywhere again lol (presuming it returns to OU).
    Hopefully it won't overcentralise the metagame like it did before, but this could be fun indeed.

    Word is that evasion items are unbanned from the suspect ladder... Leftovers is better on Chomp but I swear my good luck might just run out with this.

    ... people on the suspect ladder are good, Ive lost like the past 8 battles in the row, there go my hopes of voting

    Garchomp isn't as amazing as made out to be though, even with sand veil, in fact I keep on losing to Doexs-D offense and sun teams for the most part and I was somewhat prepared for them to, I doubt though there will ever be a motivation to ban them until they dominate the ladder

    but what do I know, I can't win a fucking game

    Already been haxed by a sub sd Chomp, missed 2 Dracos on it, who hasn't been there? It's a really interesting bulky thing to have to worry about it when it's not haxing you though so I'm still very warm to the idea of just banning Sand Veil.

    I actually think theres no valid argument to keep Deo-D or Drought at this point :P

    I've lost my first 3 three battles already. Two of which came down to Garchomp being their last Pokemon and me missing Ice Beam/Outrage against them.

    Great decision!
    Should be fun and vigoroth supect test. :)

    Anyway, I think the initial focus should be on whether Garchomp is overpowered not whether there's some rule that can make it easier to manage.
    I'm afraid some might be going into the test with that mindset (given the discussions that came before). However, that is not consistent with how other Pokemon are tested.
    That is we didn't say "but for Serene Grace, Shaymin-S is not broken/more manageable" or "but for Sand Rush Excadrill isn't broken/hard to manage" and start suggesting surgical remedies before the test was even done.
    If that discussion occurs at all it should occur after it's established that a given Pokemon gives TOO MUCH of an advantage in battles between otherwise similarly matched opponents.
    Anything else is putting the cart before the horse.

    Anyway, this should be a great test.
    Good Luck to everyone!

    You could've missed both those Dracos anyways. You don't know if you rolled inside of the normal miss zone or in the Sand Veil only miss zone.

    "omg misshax bs ban snad veil" is a wonderful argument when using non 100% accurate moves, isn't it?

    Garchomp is good :o

    SubSD Garchomp + Hippowdown + Spinblocker (Jellicent) annihilates teams.

    I think a drought ban might be to harsh honestly, the main issue I am having is mother fucking Venusaur, giga drain put it over the top in my opinion, but that's just me.

    I don't understand why people want Garchomp back in OU. Am I missing something here? Is there some sort of niche that Garchomp must fill in order to balance out the metagame? If there's a Pokemon which is so broken it needs the likes of Garchomp to be reintroduced into OU to quell it (which there isn't), why not ban that Pokemon itself? But, as I just said, such a Pokemon doesn't exist.

    I think people want Garchomp back in OU because, well it's Garchomp. Why being Garchomp is so attractive to battlers will be explained below. It's probably going to banned again, even without Sand Veil. Yeah, sure, there's Ice Beam from Scarfed Genesect and Ice Shard from Mamoswine, but just look at Garchomp's stats, typing and moveset. Dragon / Ground. Excellent offensive typing. Of course, that's not THE reason why Garchomp's banned as evidenced by Flygon. Not only does it have that typing, but access to SD, EQ and Outrage. Garchomp just needs a Fire move and nothing resists it's attacks. Same with D-Nite, but he gets no STAB on EQ. Stat wise, also just...wow! With a 102 base speed stat, he outspeeds a lot of the OU metagame. Also, his 130 base attack stat with STAB EQ and Outrage is madness. Garchomp also isn't just a dog who can only bite, his 108 / 95 / 85 give Garchomp some natural bulk close to Dragonite! Of course, Dragonite's Mutiscale gives it more bulk than Garchomp, but it's more bulk than the average Dragon.

    But who knows? Maybe Garchomp might end up fitting in with the OU crowd, but then there's the whole Sand Veil thing. Banning Sand Veil just to let a Pokemon back in OU who's the only one who can abuse it I think is dumb. It's not like Swift Swim where it can make junk into gods. If it were, I'd see people having major problems with Gliscor or Sandslash. All of this I think is unnessary and I'm sure Chomppers will just be banned again.

    I think Garchomp's defences is what pushed it over the edge.. not only is it absolutely mandatory to use an ice or dragon move to ohko it but often a key supereffective miss can mean you now need two pokemon to knock it out.

    I've only played about 5 games in the new ladder so far, but based on what I've seen so far, even sand veil isn't necessarily a problem, albeit I wouldn't mind if it was gone.

    My opinion on hax, Sand Veil or otherwise, is that if it happens it happens I don't give a shit. But of course that's just me.

    Anyway, Garchomp is so dang fun to use. It's great that it's not broken, because it's been so long since Chomp was available and I'm realizing the great effect Chomp has on the metagame. It tones down the dominance of a lot of rain threats, which is really nice, and its sweeping capabilities aren't so bad that you can't beat it. The one thing I'm seeing is that people are way too reliant on Sand Veil. Sand Veil is only a 20% chance, and so many people are relying on it. A tip: don't rely on Sand Veil, it doesn't turn out well 80% of the time (pun may or may not have been intended).

    SubSD Garchomp is the best set by far, not because of Sand Veil but because provided the opponent's checks/counters to Chomp are removed it will demolish. Not that it's broken, but it's definitely top-tier.

    Obviously you weren't prepared for chomp. You needed more contingency plans, you silly, silly guy. For instance, have you thought of running Choice Scarf Haxorus? Haxorus' mold breaker ability prevents garchomp from gaining evasion under sand, so you can smash it with outrage!?! What? Running Choice Scarf Haxorus on every team isn't feasible? I beg your pardon...

    I'm pretty sure Sand Veil is still the stupid, crutchy, and broken (not the literal term) ability it was before.

    trying this, sounds anti-meta and most importantly anti-haxchomp

    edit: and dual chop beats the sub version...
