    Proposed Starting Banlist for Gen 5

    Cathy and I had a chance to speak on IRC about a great many things and I think we actually ended up attaining some common ground. I agree with her than this discussion is better if it is delayed after more information about B/W is attained even if she and I disagree somewhat on the idea of an...

    What did we learn from tiering in generation four?

    I agree with the process suggested in this post. If the past is any indication of what is to come in the future, I believe pretty strongly that a beginning banlist of the 670+ pokemon and Wobb/Wynaut is necessary to give us a game that we want to designate as our primary standard. I think an...

    Proposed Starting Banlist for Gen 5

    I'd be ok with starting off banning BST 670+ with the exceptions of Regigigas and Slaking and letting all 600's into OU. The list in the OP is simply what I think would be best based on assumptions about mostly static game mechanics and I think it is likely that the ones I've listed will get...

    Proposed Starting Banlist for Gen 5

    I don't think you read my post matty. You'll notice that I don't really suggest any provision for testing things that we decide to initially ban. I'm not suggesting anything like what we did in Gen 4... since I think on the whole it took way too long and resulted in a lot of frustration even...

    Proposed Starting Banlist for Gen 5

    We need a starting point on this and for now I'm going to ignore Gen 5 pokemon and deal only with Gen 4. Here's is my proposed ban list: Arceus Darkrai Deoxys Deoxys-e Deoxys-f Deoxys-l Dialga Giratina Giratina-o Groudon Ho-oh Kyogre Latias Latios Lugia Manaphy Mew Mewtwo Palkia Rayquaza...

    Welcome Board

    We appreciate the suggestion, and we've explored such a place in the past. We found that it does not work really well within the Smogon community, but I'm glad to see that even with your first post you are thinking about how to make this place better. Welcome to Smogon!

    Is there any good reason to not finally start testing clauses as planned all along?

    Ok Jump and I talked we are not going to test these clauses for Gen 4. We'll cross the Gen 5 bridge when we get there.

    Notice I've removed rule 10 since it seemed somewhat confusing given Jackal's post above. Please refer to his post for how "glitches" will be treated for tournament purposes.
