    If you use guillotine on Blaziken does it stay alive for 30 seconds after its head falls off?

    I still think we should have just banned speed boost on blaziken since that's the real offender, not blaziken. I don't care what you say about opening cans of worms. I think they need to be opened to get shit done and done right. Speed Boost is the real reason everyone is bitching over it, and you all know it. Blaziken is a case where a new ability is obviously blatantly undeniably is what breaking it. (Well, new to it anyways :P)

    Blaziken wasn't broken. Now it does have Speed Boost and it is broken. So remove the offending item niggar. Why is that so hard to accept? :( Blaziken by itself and without speed boost isn't broken, and you all know it. This is a case where something can be avoided with one thing, and you refused to take it becaues you're lazy fucks who don't want to, and claim BS reasonings to do so.

    I swear smogon is turning into the worse of smashboards :(

    Stop trying to say it would be like banning outrage from salamence, because it's totally not. Stop trying to twist my words. Blaziken is only broken because speed boost, and that is the fact. You can't deny it (you can but anyone with half a brain will know better). Everyone who complained about blaziken were solely complaining about speed boost and not blaziken itself. Blaziken needs speed boost to use them effectively, or else it just gets creamed before it moves.

    Stop trying to justify the unjust ban of blaziken. I highly doubt anyone would have considered it even with it getting HJK being 130 BP now and blaziken getting it. I'll say it before and i say it again: blaziken getting the 130 BP HJK is MINOR compared to speed boost. All it would have been is just having a better fighting move to use than superpower/brick break/sky uppercut and still being a painfully slow fighting type that's less useful than infernape. And even then it's arguably on how much better HJK is when a miss or a switch to a ghost on it costs you 50% of your life. It needs a speed boost to ensure that tentacruel does not wipe it out with surf/scald before it moves. It's only able to do that because it could move first with speed boost.

    I'm just asking for a blaziken+speed boost ban, not a speed boost itself ban. To be honest I would rather ban DW abilities regardless of how shitty or good they are but thats just me.

    All of them.

    I guess this means we can finally go on with our plan of banning Venusaur from 4th gen UU now.

    I beat a Blaziken once, which means it isn't broken.

    Lets fix this madness and unban it.

    Anything that is easy enough to use that even KG can get to the top of the ladder should be banned, imo.
