wat.

It is only gen 5 where Blaziken jumped to Ubers.


And it's only because of his dream world ability.

Btw can you still use blaziken outside of Ubers if you dont use his dream world ability?


On smogon's simulator and iirc pokemon online, no.
Anywhere else, depends on what rules.

Which happens to be exactly what TC asked, if you read closely. He didn't ask about the metagames at the time but the modern metagame.

That's really ****ing stupid.

Edit: I meant at the fact that Blaziken is banned regardless of not using his ability, he isn't that good without it, some with Exadrill without his ability.

Anyways, Gen 3, at the time, they didn't have the physical/special split and they were creating Pokemon like Sharpedo who were meant to use Physical Water attacks, but since all Water Attacks were special, he was useless.It was like that with a lot of Pokemon that gen.

The options where ban blaziken or ban speed boost since every other speed boost kinda sucked it wasn't fair.
