The council has agreed to suspect Hoopa-Unbound.
Ever since it was introduced, Hoopa-U has been a huge threat in the Monotype metagame. 160/170/80 attacking stats allow Hoopa-U to be a fearsome scarfer, or a powerful wallbreaker. Hoopa-U also has a wide movepool, allowing it go both physical or special. Mixed sets are also viable, which makes it almost impossible to predict and prepare for. Furthermore, Hoopa-U is found on 2 of Monotype’s strongest types, Dark and Psychic.
For those that obtain the requirements necessary to vote, there will be only two options: global ban or no ban. To go along with our tiering philosophy, type-banning Hoopa-Unbound on either of its types will not be an option.
You can view your COIL by simply typing /rank into the PS! simulator. Tagging The Immortal to request that he sets up COIL for our ladder. Thanks in advance, TI!
Please note that there is 90 game limit, so if you go above, you will not be able to vote. Resetting your W/L will reset your COIL as well.
The B value for the test will be 8. The COIL requirement will be 2850. Some sample values are below.
GXE NUM 72 530 73 229 74 147 75 109 76 86 77 72 78 62 79 54 80 48 81 44 82 40 83 37 84 34
Participating in this suspect test does not count towards the Tiering Contributor badge.
The account you achieve your reqs with must be created on or after the date of this post and must have the tag MS3 at the start of it so we can ensure that everyone laddered within the suspect period.
Example: If I were to use my own name for obtaining reqs, the account I would use would be "MS3 Anttya".
This suspect will end two weeks from now on the 19th of March, 11:59 PM EST. By that time you must have identified with your reqs in the identification thread. The identification thread will go up during the suspect period and will be announced here as well as linked in the Monotype room intro. A 60% majority in favor of banning Hoopa-Unbound will be necessary for the ban to occur.
(As a side note, intelligent and respectful debate of Hoopa-U in this thread is encouraged during the suspect period. One-line posts and shitposts are not. You are welcome to have more casual discussions on this topic in the monotype room.)
Good luck and happy laddering!
