now brace yourselves for DEG's sarcastic memes

tagging The Immortal to implement
 
Maybe people wanted a z-detect suspect because they wanted they wanted a say in the future of the metagame, and to have elements of the metagame decided in a suspect, like every other metagame. Just a thought


Anyhow, guess I'll share my thoughts on this despite me being too lazy and bad to get reqs. What this ban set was a precedent against luck based strategies, and I fully expect to have suspects on stuff like brightpowder (or another quickban controversie) in the future based on the precedent this set. What I can't tell is how far it will go. it may just end at brightpowder and other purely luck based strategies, or it may move onto stuff like serene grace (rip meloetta) and sleep. I just hope the community does not get carried away with this. But what do I know?

I'm very interested in the individual reasoning behind the votes. Will that information be made public?

I'm confused, hasn't there long been an evasion moves clause in 1v1, like how accuracy reducing moves like mud slap are banned? The evasion moves ban has long applied to Z-moves in formats like OU, and I don't see any logical reason it shouldn't have been the same way in 1v1. Accuracy reducing moves and evasion boosting moves are inherently uncompetitive, especially in 1v1. This shouldn't even have been a thing in the first place.

With Z-Status moves that boost Evasion being introduced in Gen 7, the Evasion Clause was eventually reworded to specify only the moves Double Team and Minimize. Everything else Evasion-related must be considered for individual bans in each tier/metagame.

Z-Detect has been banned from 1v1 (12-6)
So, Z-Detect ban has happned, but what road does this lead us on? Ban all rng? Ban Togekiss/ Sawsbuck techs? I dont think that the ban was bad BUT its the road ahead Im a bit worried about, will it be driven to the extreme of all rng banned? will it just not affect 1v1 suspects? Just be aware of what will happen if we start just going around banning rng to a big extreme, community... (Im not saying Im completly innocent either if anyone wants to try saying that)

1v1 in 2018 was a wild time, with a bunch of metagame shifts, 1v1 room going public, and many exciting tours and events. To commemorate this, a fun little poll was created just to acknowledge what has come to pass, and some of the communities favorite aspects of 1v1 as a whole! So, without further ado,
1v1 End of the Year Poll Results
Eligible auth per category was determined by the highest rank they had attained from January 1st, 2018, to the time of the poll's creation. That's why Quote is a mod in this poll, not RO. Sorry, new boss :( There were also 127 total valid entries
