Where the Lights Are
If you realized I have revised the definition so that instead of "sweep", we have instead "accomplish the first two characteristics", and for "obvious reasons" (It was an oversight on my part the first time around and I forgot to change it)The words in bold are things that I have already proved through objective unbiased facts based on game mechanics and not theorymon. The word *substantially* is the only part of that sentence that is truly subjective as I pointed out in the second paragraph after the quote box. For the people that say Stealth Rock is not suspect, I would like to see some arguments, preferably backed up by objective info, that stealth rock does not make it substantially easier for another pokemon to sweep, or disprove my claims stealth rock can be set up consistantly and/or that dealing extra damage every time a pokemon switches makes it easier to sweep.
The argument you need to make is that the move SR makes it consistently easier for Pokemon(s) to be capable of sweeping through a significant portion of teams in the Metagame with little effort, and I think that's the argument that the SR ban supporters need to consider. In order to do this, find a Pokemon that can sweep and prove that this pokemon "is indeed uber" when you assume SR damage, but not uber when you don't assume SR damage.
Also, you make the assumption that "it damages everything, therefore it makes it easier to sweep", sure, but I believe it is on the SR-test supports to prove that this is significant.
Good, intelligent effort though, it is much appreciated =)
