    Announcement: This has been the last voting on gen 5. Given the upcoming of Gen 6 and reorganisation, we aren't holding a new OMotM until Gen 6 OMs is stable. We will hold a last featured Other Meta on September: Ability Exchange, given it was second this last voting.

    Inverse Battle is the new OMotM. Thread keeps closed since there's no voting as of now. Sorry!

    The new OMotM is XY Sky Battles. We want to spotlight Ninendo's newest Other Metagames while our OMs get into shape on the transition of no pokebank to pokebank and are given time to develop further.

    There will be no nomination phase this month due to the lack of metagames to actually nominate. That said, there will indeed be voting! Stay tuned.

    ALL RIGHT LET'S FUCKING DO THIS
    yes it's a bit early but HYPE
    All OMotM cooldowns have been reset for X and Y, meaning Ability Exchange and STABmons are a go - but why go in known metas when we can have some uncharted territory?

    OMotM Month 9 Voting
    Options:
    - Ability Exchange
    - Averagemons
    - Middle Cup
    - RODAN Cup
    - STABmons

    You may vote for one metagame. Please bold your selection to make it easier to count. Vote away!

    I was afraid STABmons and Ability Exchange would have to go through OMotM again. I thought the point of having a voting stage was to see what OMs people were interested in playing, meaning it would be pointless to resend already popular OMs through it, because we already know people are interested in playing them. Putting them through the process again will likely make it take longer to get other interesting OMs onto the main server. Whatever, enough of me bitching about certain OMs not getting ladders.
    Averagemons
    4 really good OMs this month. The results will probably be very close.

    I'm going to hate myself because I'm going to constantly forget that things can go either special or physical or mixed, but AVERAGEMONS

    Averagemons, and I second what Pokemon Master Debater says about STABmons and AE, since we as a community have both played, and enjoyed those metas, we should get a ladder for them, but at this point they are not new, and if we pick old favorites, new ideas will not get the chance to shine.

    Edit: Don't worry toxicroaker, it's the meta that counts, right? (Although I guess it would be cool to be known for such a great meta averagemons will be, and already is. After a day of playing it, it's already one of my favorites.)

    Notice how STABmons and Ability Exchange have zero votes between the two of them

    Although I'm a sucker for STABmons, I really want to give Averagemons a shot. STABmons really just needs a permanent 6th gen ladder tbh since it already has an established player base.
