STABmons Suspect: V-Create
The STABmons council has decided to suspect V-Create on non-native users.
V-Create is widely known as the most powerful non-suicidal move in the game that does not require set-up. Recent additions to the metagame in Libero Cinderace and Marowak-Alola have given us excellent abusers of the move capable of breaking the vast majority of walls in the metagame. Other users such as Incineroar, Flareon, and Centiskorch give the move different dimensions and ensure that walling these users is not as simple as slapping a Fire resist on your team.
Not all is good for V-Create however. The move lowers three stats including Speed, making revenge killing V-Create abusers fairly easy. All of the common users are also extremely susceptible to Stealth Rock unless they equip Heavy Duty Boots, which combines poorly with the hit and run nature of the move.
The minimum requirements to vote in this suspect are 25 matches with no less than 75 GXE.
The suspect will run from the time of this post until August 21 at 11:59 PM EST. Voting will close one week after that or when we reach a majority.
In order to vote on this suspect you must create a fresh alt (creation date no earlier than 8/7/20) with the letters VCS sequentially in it.
We may have some. This is TBD, so stay tuned.
This suspect will NOT free Darmanitan-Unova, as we determined when we banned it that it was broken without V-Create thanks to Pyro Ball.
