Bans for Round 3
Kommo-o and Gengar are now banned from Round 3 onwards!
This should come to no-ones surprise, as these two mons have been incredibly centralising in the tier, with both Pokemon forcing multiple different checks on all teams, and a 55% usage rate in particular for Kommo-o in Round 2 speaks for itself on how good this Pokemon is rn. The removal of Pursuit has also made offensive counterplay to Gengar very limited, putting huge amounts of pressure on teams without the few defensive counterplay options such as Pyukumuku and Umbreon, which are all incredibly passive. As mentioned recently in the NP thread, both of these Pokemon are near mandatory on any non (Semi) stall team, with a heavy opportunity cost to not running either Pokemon.
i agree to moutemoute's point. Could obstagoon be removed as well? Removing gengar is one less decent revenge killer against it. Also, defensive kommo is one of the only checks to obstagoon, and removing that as well? Well boy...
Please don't use this thread to ask for X Mon to be banned also. The over centralization of these two Pokemon are exceptionally high and the likelihood is they both rise to ou once alpha begins next week, so we came to the conclusion they warranted removal. If other Pokemon prove problematic they will be looked into and removed next round. PM us instead if you wish to voice your opinion on the matter. I will take any opinions into account when going over replays as usual. Thanks.
You all should have read the op so you know what you signed up for. It clearly states that any unhealthy or broken elements will be looked at and considered removed for future rounds of the tour. Your solution attempts to have this tour be based off the upcoming stats for beta but does that not go against the 'point' of the tournament as that's not a reflection of UU alpha. As I have already said if you wish to discuss about these topics whether it be suggestions or complaints then please pm us. Number Man has made a post in the metagame thread and, like I have previously stated, opinions like that won't be ignored.
