I know, right? I'm not a competitive trainer or anything, but I believe SR is too overpowered.

Unless transferred from 4th gen, luckily that move is rare on Flyers/Levitate guys.
Xerneas is Psychic/Rock, Yveltal Dark/Flying (speculation)

There's a Smogon thread on Sky Battles; they plan to try and implement it as an Other Metagame.

The available SR users are Aerodactyl, Skarmory, Lunatone, Solrock, Claydol, Gliscor, and the Landorus.

The available spinners are Delibird, Claydol, and Cryogonal.

The sole Magic Bouncer is Xatu.

There are only two spinblockers: Gengar and Drifblim. Neither of them want to take a strong attack from Claydol (who resists SR) because it can Psychic Gengar and Stone Edge Drifblim. I can see a Claydol set...

Nature: +Spe -Def
31 Spe, Atk, Spa necessary
252 Spe, 252 Spa, 4 Atk
Psychic/Stone Edge/SR/Rapid Spin

Has Rapid Spin to get rid of your own SR (anyone who uses Spikes or Toxic Spikes is stupid) and can set it on the opponent; also has counters for the only two spinblockers.

It might be banned for sky battles.

It would make sense if it never worked on flyers/levitateters in the first place like spikes.

Not all flying/levitating are weak against Rock. So I probably use those.
