Suspect Nomination and Discussion
So it's been a month since our last suspect test, and the council would want to know if there is anything that you feel strongly that requires testing. The council has identified no suspects, but we want to hear what the rest of the community has to say. This is a chance to persuade us to look at what you believe is an unhealthy element of the metagame.
You may also post if you believe the current metagame is balanced and satisfactory without any suspects left to test atm (which can always change in the future with the advent of ORAS or simple metagame trends).
Seeing how Kangaskhanite has been voted to stay TWICE (and seeing how we just tested it in our last suspect stage), we strongly discourage you from nominating it unless you strongly feel for the need for a third test. Good luck convincing the council, though :S
As for nominating current Ubers to be dropped into Doubles: do NOT nominate Ubers that would influence the metagame more than Kyurem-B, which is a Pokemon I consider as the benchmark for any drop-downs. Ubers will be dropped ONLY if they can seamlessly enter the metagame without causing major alterations to the metagame. It does not matter if you believe a Pokemon would add "further diversity" or other "benefits" without being overpowering. The effect of dropping Ubers should be recessive rather than dominant. We're not looking to shaking the metagame by dropping Ubers. Intentionally searching for Ubers to drop for the sake of more suspect tests is totally unnecessary and undesirable.
Do NOT nominate clauses for testing...the council will decide whether any of them are worth removing (the current stance is keeping them to filter out excessive luck factors from our metagame)
Gonna state the obvious here by saying that this thread will be moderated.
You have an entire week (till July 7th) to make your case about any particular suspect, so post away ^.^
That's not to say that you cannot speak up once this thread is closed. Feel free to PM the council any time with your concerns about the metagame.
