In the single closest and largest suspect test in Smogon history, Terastallization remains fully legal in Scarlet & Violet Overused!
This marks the end of our generation's first suspect test
and Smogon's reputation as haters of fun.
Players of Scarlet & Violet Overused should expect a prompt follow through via another OU council Radar
and vote in the coming days as well as future suspects down the line.
Eligible voters: 351
No action: 141
-- in order to act on Terastallization, we needed to hit 60% action, which is now mathematically impossible.
Therefore, Terastallization remains fully legal in Scarlet & Violet Overused!
Do note that there is potential for future suspects on this subject if deemed appropriate by the community, but it is not guaranteed and nothing is likely to happen in the immediate future. Finally, had we hit the threshold for action, Team Preview would have won in a landslide -- you guys can likely tell this much from the eye-test alone. Outright ban was a very distant second behind it with the two other options struggling to receive much support at all.
Thank you to all participants. This was the closest and most consequential vote in Smogon's long history, so consider yourselves all co-writers of the amazing story of competitive Pokemon's singles metagames. As early as this afternoon, we were largely unsure what the verdict would be as votes flooded in and it was quite the spectacle from my perspective.
The thread will remain open for a few more days to give time to those who want their vote to count towards the Tiering Contributor badge as there are five outstanding voters. As mentioned in the OP, please PM me with your votes if you happen to qualify for the badge. Tagging Kris
to let them know the suspect is over.
Finally, thank you to all of the amazing contributors to PS, Smogon, and OU specifically that made this possible. Thank you to our passionate playerbase for participating as well.
