    Just to remind everybody, the results of the Non-Pokemon Vote thread are as follows: Bright Powder and Lax Incense are both banned, but Drizzle and Drought are still allowed. With that being said, here's a reminder of who is allowed to vote in this thread:

    Here are the Pokemon suspects who passed the nomination phase, which you can all vote on:

    Blaziken
    Deoxys-E
    Excadrill
    Latios
    Reuniclus
    Thundurus


    Your may vote to Ban, Do Not Ban, or Abstain on any of these Pokemon. Remember, if you are unsure about a suspect's tiering, do not vote to Abstain, vote Do Not Ban instead. Abstain is only an option for those who do not want to vote for a suspect, for whatever reason. That's different from being unsure of a suspect's tiering.

    Here's what an acceptable ballot would look like:

    Remember, all admins, supermods, or PR mods voting, you need to delete your post in order to keep this a "blind" vote. Other than that, vote away. Lets get this done ASAP.

    In order to finish this vote in time for the SPL playoffs, the deadline for this vote is going to be 11:59pm on Sunday, March 27. That gives everybody a full weekend to vote. I hope that's enough time.

    I feel pretty comfortable with all of them. Blaziken is really an annoying to face. The unpredictability of it is what makes me vote the way I have. If it only had like one set and all of its moves were predictable, I would vote differently, but alas that is not so. Deoxys-e is a pretty great lead, but other than that it's not that great. It will definitely see more usage soon is my guess, and then we can better make a judgement on it's status in the OU metagame. Excadrill is a lame and pretty much requires some sort of physical wall. I've wanted it out of OU since day 1 so I really hope that happens. Latios is really power with Specs Draco Meteor tbh. My forretress on one of my teams (with special defense) took like 55% switching in my opinion that's too much for a resisted move on a mon designed to take Special hits ok and set up hazards. Reuniclus was borderline for me tbh. It is basically a) out of hand really quickly or b) easily beaten and there is no in between. It's overrated in what people say about it but underrated as to how much usage it should get at the same time if that makes sense (which is probably doesn't). Thundurus is lame but usually doesn't get out of hand that much. It will probably be one of the top powers in OU gen 5 when all is said and done imo.
