its practically impossible to run sun boosted v-create on a assist spam team. and i wasnt saying "banning tarrows will make flying types amazing checks to groudon" iwas saying ,it would nerf groudon, forcing it to either hit a flying type with v-create, or hit non flying types with v-create, rather then easily getting best of both worlds with adapt thousand arrows.So you're saying banning TA would enable Flying Types to be a good check. But what good would they be against a banded Sun-boosted VCreate?
At the best, it would force the meta to develop Flash Fire Flying Types.
Uncompetitiveness should be removed, not nerfed.
as ive pointed out before. this isn't "noncompetitive" in the normal sense. its not "evasion" or "Swagplay" which relys on hax. or its not "parental bond" which outclassed 100% of abilities out there. this is something that abuses the metas lack of ability to have more then 3 checks to every threat. assist is not NEARLY as broken when restricted to 1 coverage that has plenty of immunities and resistances. especially when the best user(due to its bulk) has two coverage moves that are both easily able to be immune to. by nerfing assist, we turn it "noncompetative" as in "a strat that will never work against any normal player". seriously, no point killing a dog once its declawed and tamed.
"But what good would they be against a banded Sun-boosted VCreate?" uhhm...nothing?...whats your point? its not like i said "birdspam counters groudon" which i never even remotely mentioned tbh. i said "banning arrows will nerf groudon" preventing it from easily having best of both worlds by simply spamming adaptability arrows. it means locking groudon into thousand arrows doesn't immediately spell "something DIES" where you can switch into a flying type and be able to at least outplay it somewhat. but this is like...an entire different ballgame so i don't see any purpose of mentioning it.
again, banning assist solves the huge picture of the problem. so i'm down for banning it, im just saying tarrows ban will help the problem too, while also doing some helpful things for the meta like nerfing mega ray(leviregi counter op until magma storm takes popularity over ground), protean(not much) groudon, assist, and whatnot. all of which we currently see as "very threatening"
