    Finding a way to complain about things before they even happen is an impressive skill, I commend you my friend. Freeing Zygarde was a no-brainer for me. Every Grass type Thousand Arrows resist has a way to threaten it enough regardless (see: Tangrowth Grass Knot breaks sub, Bulu can muscle past...

    nobody is arguing that zen tactics darm is broke, but the ability power construct is basically just "zygarde-complete" -- regular zygarde is still usable. you cannot have darmanitan-z without darmanitan to begin with though and this difference is everything. we tier pokemon and pokemon forms...

    We also didn’t have the same playerbase survey infrastructure in place previously. We do now and one is planned for later this month, which will help consult the playerbase. Depends on the pokemon, I don’t love generalizing

    Impressions from the early metagame, a potential playerbase survey later this month, what checks and counters pokemon have, and honestly any other normal quickban criteria I may not have listed. I am terribly sorry for my potential bias, FCKNfuego. On a serious note, it’s not a perfect process...

    Everyone seems to be asking why this, that, and the other thing to the point that I had to say fuck it: But in an effort to be transparent, which the general public absolutely deserves, here is why I voted as I did: :Dracovish: and :Darmanitan-Galar: stood out to me over a prolonged period of...

    I cannot speak on behalf of the entire council, but my personal reasoning was that Galarian-Darmanitan had no blanket counters and makes games come down to virtual guesswork due to how strong it is and Dracovish warps the metagame more than anything else with a single move. I do not like the...
