With Deoxys-S banned now, there is one less reason for me to have Rapid Spin on my team, Spikes is starting to annoy me though.

I just replaced rapid spin with grass knot on Starmie and had a few battles. Honestly, I didn't miss it at all.

On another note, has anyone else noticed an increase in donphan usage or is it just me?
Ive noticed it but Donphan sucks imo, it loses to the most common Spikers in the game (Ferro). Loses even worse to the most common ghosts (Gengar and Jellicent) and people just dont use it correctly and use Terrible Shard on it. Ice Shard has always been bad, it didnt beat Garchomp back in the day when phan was OU nor does it beat any other 4x weak dragon because its just so weak as in Max Attack Adamant Donphan cant even OHKO Min HP / Min Def Nite AFTER SR with it. Assurance is far better because then you can actually touch ghosts. Its also dead weight against any weather teams, loses horribly to all entry hazards bar SR. Just blegh. [/Phan rant]

As for Deoxys-S ive thought it was broken since round 1 to be honest. Stacked hazards with that speed and Taunt/Magic Coat is ridiculous. Also can anyone post conformation that it was actually banned, i know its suspect, but is it actually official ?

Yeah I blogged about it with some proof.

Deoxys-S was always annoying for my team, the Taunting and Magic Coating really tore apart my team at the time and the fact that it doesn't go down to a slight breeze like Deoxys-A made it harder too.

so i made a team today, with about 10-15 minutes of research and i tested in a few battles on the ladder, so far i havent had too much trouble, just want to know if there is any glaring weaknesses? had a bit of problems with conkledur or whatever that thing is, basically if latios cant set up, then i get killed to death by it. i assume you have a basic understanding of what each pokemon's role is in the team.

if you don't: heatran-set up hazards, stall stuff. scizor-scout, landorus-scout, latios-sweep, starmie-spin and kill things, rotom-kill things and support stuff.

Since no one seems to have actually confirmed it, Deo-S is indeed banned.

Well, Karpman has suddenly left PC, and he was one of the three clan leaders. We will have to replace him before it gets underway. There is no need to be pessimistic really - things will get done.

Groups of people who battle against each other, as in you are teams. You have wars vs other clans etc.

Swift Swim is far too powerful when drizzle is allowed the 50% STAB boost and double speed is just too much. It makes otherwise poor threats like Kabutops, Kingdra, Ludicolo, Omastar etc way too overpowered.

Plus i dont think SS Armaldo has even been released yet has it ?

Its been released.

Still, could they at least limit the ban to water types with Swift Swim?

There are only going to be three clans meaning it cannot be submit to mod for approval to "make" a clan. If so then yesss. That always got really annoying back in 2007.

Not just you! It's been like that since yesterday afternoon. I think I preferred when it didn't load at all than for the password screen to appear and being unable to do anything. :(

The only problem with that, is that then you open a pandora's box (blah blah slippery slope, I think we all know how the competitive mons community works) with other items. "Why not Brightpowder on Pokemon that don't have Sand Veil" etc.
