"Um, Razza, what I meant is my team is weak to these OBVIOUSLY broken Pokemon, so we should ban them so that my team will do better and I can rise in the rankings." I'm not attacking your side of the argument. I hate Drought and Drizzle. But that's literally what you just said. At least try to disguise those sorts of reasons. Sand Stream + Sand Rush is not exactly the same as Drizzle + SwSw. People have been over this. The SwSwers ALSO got a 50% boost to their STAB moves, whereas Excadrill gets no STAB boost. It's one thing to say Excadrill is broken, but don't compare Sand Srush to Swift Swim. Furthermore, Excadrill is the only Sand Rush abuser who doesn't suck. With Swift Swim, we would've had to ban like 5 Pokemon most likely before we got to some un-broken ones, whereas Excadrill is just one Pokemon. I'm not justifying Aldaron's Proposal, I'm just saying that there is literally no reason to not just ban Excadrill. "I would have added Chlorophyll + Drought, but Sun doesn't beat my team half as easily." Again, I don't disagree with your point of view at all. I just disagree with the awful way that you presented it.
