In an attempt to be consistent with recent tiering decisions (e.g. the banning of Arena Trap rather than individually banning Diglett, Dugtrio, and Trapinch), the DPP council would like to unban Wobbuffet and Wynaut and subsequently ban Shadow Tag. This is purely aesthetic and will not have any consequences on the metagame, but we are opening up discussion to the public in case there are any objections or concerns.

Here is a link to the current DPP OU ruleset, for reference: https://www.smogon.com/dex/dp/formats/ou/

I like consistency but I also like Zarel's point. IIRC, Blaziken is blanket banned across BW OU meaning it can't even be used with Blaze. I understand HAs make tiering decisions in older generations that lack them more difficult but I do wish we settled upon a standard that placed efficiency first. I don't care too much about performing this change for aesthetic purposes.

Is there anything stopping us from implementing a Shadow Tag ban in addition to keeping them Uber outside of redundancy?
