The ban seems unneeded. It's not a very common Pokemon, and is easily countered. It's set up fodder for anything that's faster/running mental herb and scared of things like CB Tyranitar. I don't think it should be banned because it's good at getting a layer or 2 of hazards up on unprepared teams.

Plus, wouldn't this only hurt offensive weather-less teams, since that's what Deoxys-D is almost always on? Banning it would only make OU that more stale if it shifted those players back into running weather teams.

It's not nearly as broken as Deoxys-S for OU, IMO. Even though Deoxys-S was pretty easy to play around...
