Since RU was created in May, we haven't done any sort of banning. This was due to a desire to let the tier "rotate" once, as up until now the UU usage stats that RU was based off of weren't reflective of what Pokemon UU actually had (Charizard and Sawsbuck in UU for example). The original intent was to rotate the tier in July after three months of usage stats had accumulated. Due to technical difficulties with the server, we haven't had any sort of usage stats to work with, and so we were stuck in a metagame with multiple vastly overpowered threats that we had no ability to remove. However, thanks to Antar, we now have new usage stats to work with and can create an initial banlist. The following Pokemon will be up for discussion. Do not discuss any other Pokemon for banning; the list has been made to be as exclusive as possible while still banning the Pokemon that are too powerful. Code: Yanmega Venomoth Omastar Gorebyss Huntail If you feel like a Pokemon on this list should not be there, post about it, but be sure to back up anything you post with sound reasoning. If there is not very significant opposition to any of the pokemon listed, they will be banned. This is not up for a vote. This thread will close on Wednesday, October 5 at 11:59 PM, at which point the bans will take effect.
