Hello, going into NU's next stage, we're moving forward by suspect testing Emboar.
Emboar is one of NU's most formidable offensive Pokemon. Insanely good dual-STAB moves backed by Reckless-boosted Wild Charge and high base Attack limit the tier's defensive counterplay to this behemoth. The sets Emboar can effectively run range from Choice Band and Choice Scarf to Grassium- and Fightinium-Z, making preparing for it and playing against it even more of a nightmare. The list of defensive checks & counters to Emboar is relatively small, limiting the options of players when teambuilding. For these reasons the NU Council has deemed Emboar worthy of a suspect test.
Emboar will be allowed on the ladder during this suspect test.
We'll be using a new format for reqs this time around. The voting requirements will be a minimum of 80 GXE as well as a minimum game count + gxe of 120 (more details below). This suspect period will last for 10 days, ending Saturday, February 17th at 11:59 PM EDT.
GXE ≥ 80
GXE + battle count ≥ 120
Here are some examples of GXE and battle count to give you a better idea of the goal:
80 (GXE) + 41 (battle count) = 121 ≥ 120 Reqs Achieved (Both Minimum GXE and GXE+battle count total meet the requirements)
87 (GXE) + 34 (battle count) = 121 ≥ 120 Reqs Achieved (Both Minimum GXE and GXE+battle count total meet the requirements)
82 (GXE) + 34 (battle count) = 116 ≤ 120 Reqs NOT Achieved (Minimum GXE + Battle count total does not meet the requirements)
79 (GXE) + 51 (battle count) = 130 ≥ 120 Reqs NOT Achieved (Minimum GXE not achieved)
Reqs for NU Council members will be slightly different and are as follows: minimum 35 games w/ a gxe of 80 or higher + post(s) in this thread
Tagging the The Immortal for the ladder.
