I recently came across this quote from Zarel about why moves, abilities, and items are banned so infrequently, and it got me thinking.
What if it was easier to tell if a move, ability, or item was banned in a given tier? Like, if you decide your new team is a PU team with the built-in tier picker selection box, and go to add a Politoed, you'll immediately see that Drizzle is greyed out or crossed out or whatever. Or if you try giving Baton Pass to your Beedrill, instead of displaying information about the move, it would display a little red box that says "banned", sort of like what happens if you try to give a Pokemon a move it can't learn.Zarel said:It easier for people to learn new tiers. New bans show up in the tier list which you look at at the start of teambuilding, instead of being an unpleasant surprise after teambuilding while trying to ladder.
