This is getting ridiculous. Why do they feel the need to ban anything that's more than "Really good"?

Really? It's not that strong.

Sure, it's got raw attack, but very little to use it with.

They operate with the mindset "It's too good, it needs to be banned." That's why they also are soon going to ban Keldeo, which has at least 10 pokemon in OU that resists both it's STABs.

No. The mindset for banning is 'over-centralising the metagame'.

They are pretty much banning everything. I mean, who bans a blaziken? Sure, speed boost version, but not everyone wants to use a broken speed boost blaziken. They set certain specifics for rain teams, but not for blaze blaziken? Lol

Kyurem-Black is extremely uncommon and bordering Underused.

I agree, I don't see him that often on PO and when I do, I don't lose against them.

"Can I use Scizor in UU if I don't use Technician?"
"Is Dragonite only OU if I use its hidden ability? Can Inner Focus Dragonite go in other tiers?"

etc.

Speed Boost is the reason why he's banned, being faster than your opponent is everything in the metagame, also with his awesome attack stat for a starter and having a stabbed 130 base attack move, it is easy why you see him on this list.

No one is asking about that but only about Blaziken. Blaziken was always what it was in the past. Not a hard concept to grasp. Which is: putting him back in the tier he was once was without having speed boost since its always been that way and still should be that way. Those bad examples were never that way in the first place. Dragonite in UU? xD
