If you haven't noticed, the results of OU Suspect Testing Round 1 are in! From now on, the ability Inconsistent and the Pokemon Darkrai, Deoxys-A, Deoxys-N, and Shaymin-S are banned from standard play, as they all hit a super majority ban vote. The ability Drizzle and Pokemon Manaphy hit a simple majority ban vote, which means just one more and they are out as well. Lets see if this new metagame proves to be more balanced than the last, and if we need to improve it even more afterward. Here are the new deadlines: Ladder Testing starts today and ends on Monday, January 17, at 11:59 PM Nomination Phase starts at 12:00 AM on Tuesday, January 18, and ends on Monday, January 24, at 11:59 PM Voting Phase starts at 12:00 AM on Tuesday, January 25, and ends on Monday, January 31, at 11:59 PM If things go according to schedule, we should be done with this entire round by February. Just like last round, the initial threshold for meeting voter reqs is a rating of 1400. This will be the last round where this method of qualification will be used. Good luck everybody! I'm excited to see how this metagame unfolds :) PS: Everybody, be sure to thank Super when you get a chance for swiftly updating our server to reflect our latest bans!
