Stealth Rock is among the list of suspects that they will test on the Smogon Server. The reason they are going to test it, is because they will want to see what the metagame would be like without it. Remember, there will be people that will vote, so don't complain that Stealth Rock will be banned for a certainty. Even then, when the testing comes just play the standard ladder. That's a depressing arguement. Just because you love it? Let me tell you something; you can't always have things that you love in the world. Listen, I'm teaching you a life lessons throughout here. :PThis iz stupid, Stealth Rock is a vital move on pokemon, it iz stupid to even run a 'ban-a'move' test soley on the move.
The reasonz why it shouldn't even ban, because i have deepest love and affekshun for the move.
You cannot effectively stop Stealth Rock that way. Scenario: Your Tyranitar is countered with Swampert. You cannot do anything to it or your face an Earthquake. You switch to your "tuanter" out while they Stealth Rock. So what must you do now? You go to your rapid spinner, Starmie. They'll switch out for their Rotom-H/various ghost. Problem? Yes. Rotom-H threatens with either a scarf Thunderbolt/trick or you just being walled. Let me ask you a question. How much rapid spinners do you see on shoddy lately? Close to none from what I've seen. Reason: Rapid Spinning is becoming futile in some people's eyes. Two reasons that are not fully backed up could not explain to the thousands of Smogonians why Stealth Rock shouldn't be banned.You could counter SR:
-Taunt the move
Your grammar is horrible. You don't need to talk like a "street person" when your on the computer. It is not like your talking on the street. Few will take you seriously here on Smogon. Reason: Your grammar shows that you have few acknowledgement for words. You cannot go to a business meeting and talk that way. You would be thrown out.I don't see why doing this makes sense, I know it dealz plenty damage to the OU pokemon. It dealz plenty of damage to them, SR provides support and damage to the most kommon pokemon that could potentially hurt the team..
If Sr was banned, Focus Sash iz going to be popular and these pokemon will be harder to take down. These flyerz don't stand a chance against Spikes, given that the only way to break their sashez is through 'Weather teamz'
Banning SR is ludakriz.
