Shift gear is +1 +2 for atk and speed right? If it was the other way around sure it'd be difficult but i don't see the current as stronger than extremekiller, it has no stab and even with download in consideration it's still weaker. The only benefit is it's faster but extremespeed is +2 priority regardless, it's an answer to extremekiller but isn't much better than simply using a ghost i don't think it's broken enough to be banned from uber

It's already in the Uber tier so it doesn't matter anything. There are a lot stronger Pokemon than it in there.

After 1 round of setup and Download being Physical it might as well have
BST 240 Attack and 188 Speed
Arceus BST Speed 120 + Scarf x1.5=180

After 1 Shift Gear Genesect outruns a scarved Arceus and has 1.5 to double Arceus's attack

In between a little and a lot.
I don't think EVERY team will have one, but I think it'll be even more useful than it already was.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Genesect is faster with the boost that's already known why would extremekiller use scarf though? I was comparing it's sd set since that's a boosting set to a boosting set, arceus is due to stab and the plus 2 stronger than genesect who only has the plus 2. Being slower is irrelevant as extremespeed is plus 2 regardless in a fight genesect would win, but that much is obvious since genesect resists espeed anyway i don't see a faster weaker extremekiller being that broken.

Things don't get banned out of uber. Thats the point of uber, its broken stuff.
