The Mix and Mega Council have decided that we will be conducting our fourth suspect test on Shaymin-Sky.
Due to Blazikenite still being unreleased, we have decided to take action, rather than wait any longer. If Blazikenite miraculously deems Shaymin-Sky fair/balanced and it has been banned as a result of the suspect test, then we can resuspect it back into the metagame at a later date.
Note: The suspect test is solely for Shaymin-Sky's ability to hold Mega Stones.
Shaymin-Sky had always been a somewhat underwhelming threat in the [Gen 7] Mix and Mega metagame; however, since the release of Pidgeotite, it has gained substantial viability, boosting itself above all other potent metagame threats. Initially, it was eclipsed by Darkrai and hence saw no usage whatsoever; however, due to its banning the real potency of Shaymin-Sky has been revealed. Evidently, Pidgeotite allows Shaymin-Sky to gain insane levels of Special Attack, a beneficial boost to Speed and of course, No Guard. No Guard combined with Shaymin-Sky's access to Grass Whistle means that Shaymin-Sky can only be efficiently checked by a handful of Sablenite users, or alternatively, relying on sleep fodder (often not a great way for a metagame threat to be handled). Overall, while we initially pushed for a quickban, a suspect test seems to be the better option given that its strength is not overtly broken to the extent that it needs one. Additionally, quick-banning at this late stage in the metagame (or this late after Pidgeotite's release) is more often than not, controversial, especially with the former point in mind. Avoiding that, and providing a solid mid-ground with a suspect test seems to be a suitable option. That being said, this thread is not to discuss the decision of a quickban versus a suspect test, but rather only discussion about the suspect and proof of suspect requirements.
