This thread will server as both a place for current NU Council Information as well as a History for past bans that take place over the course of SM NU.

Then, each banned element is reintroduced to the tier one at a time, and the NU council votes on whether each suspect should be kept in NU or remain BL3. After leaving beta, tiering now undergoes public suspect tests, where the Pokemon chosen are determined by the tier leaders and council, as well as from community input.
