if ur referring to the OMGS tournament, the anything goes open will begin monday and will be posted in this subforum http://www.smogon.com/forums/forums/circuit-tournaments.351/ so just look out for it there next weekThe Anything Goes Tournament
To expand on what Kris said, no OM suspects yet count for TC. Sorry!Just a couple questions; does this combined suspect count as two separate votes for TC, or one? Also, why is there a 41 game limit (sounds a bit random)?
1. Doubt so, this is kind of a complex banCan we ban mind blown instead of Blacephalon? I think that way Blacephalon would remain viable while becoming less broken.
They weren't banned cos of adapt. In fact tinted was way more broken on kart for example. The same goes for hoopa-u. And keldeo wasn't purely adapt either, mostly tinted/PH/Adapt. And finally Kyub really really wasn't adapt. They were banned cos they could viably use a multitude of abilities, and if you weren't prepared for even one of them, you would pretty much autolose, cos aside from pure ct's, there wasn't a whole lot of counterplay that existed for these mons.Some initial thoughts from laddering for a good bit:
Blacephalon didn't feel too oppressive at all. Between having AV Magearna and a bulky (though not specially) Zygarde, if it's choiced it had to guess which one I'm going out into. Also, Zygarde always lives Shadow Ball and Magearna can kinda pivot into Shadow Ball as well. I feel like it's a threatening wallbreaker but I also feel like it's not all that much when you put it next to to other ridiculous wallbreakers which I will cover in a bit. However, I don't think I've come up against a Life Orb Magic Guard Blacephalon and I think that might be a real fucking problem cuz fuck me life orb mind blown's gonna hurt.
Naganadel is completely cucked by magearna and faster threats. I don't see how this is broken at all, it needs to set up to do anything and choice scarf doesn't seem like a good option. Initial impression of this is that it's completely fine. Although to be fair I think I only faced 3 so far, one of them was scarf and the other two weren't able to do much cuz of magearna + faster mons on my team.
Victini is absoooooolutely fucking insane. It's actually goddamn nuts. Blacephalon? Fire Blast? Adaptability? Fuck that shit, desolate land v-create has no switch-ins aside from immunities. Even my fully phys def Zygarde took an astonishing 50% from this fucker. If any fire type is broken it's this fucking bitch.
And finally, the most important point imo, is that these 2 suspects are yet another case and example of how Adaptability is broken. How many Pokemon are actually banned because of adaptability? This is a genuine question cuz I don't know, but I know for a fact Terrakion was one. Keldeo? Kyurem-B? Kartana? Maybe if they're all really banned cuz of Adaptability then it's time to look at the ability and not the individual mons.
