    I would like this to be removed from the rules. I don't think that any intelligent discussion should be outright banned because of the topic. If they post with "it shoudl be baned because lance used dt ninjask and it beat me :(((" then infract them with lurk more and delete the post / thread.

    I actually don't think I've seen a 'real' discussion of evasion (or OHKOs) for DP, so it's hardly old and tired (considering that the rule has been in place since I started reading Stark...).

    Agree, the less "we dont want you to talk about THIS" stuff we have in the rules the better. It's just kind of petty, and it makes us look like we don't value our community.

    Yeah, it's especially frustrating for me since I actually don't agree with banning them.

    *gets savagely shot down* >_<

    Sure, remove it. I'm sure we can expect a discussion topic with the same old arguments on it soon enough, but it makes sense to not ban it anymore.

    I started my browsing of Smogon today with IS over the other forums so I don't know if anyone has done so yet, but it would be nice if one of our users *cough*Obi*cough* would ease our way back into discussing evasion with an intelligent discussion thread about it. Maybe I'll get to it in a bit if nobody else has.

    I was actually pondering running a tourney where OHKO moves and evasion moves weren't banned just to demonstrate how effective these strategies are, so I'm in support of this. I'd like to see what comes out of any discussion first though
