What are the chances of Mega Blaziken being banned from OU?

#1wah543Posted 9/7/2013 5:09:18 PM
since regular Blaziken got banned for speed boost, what are the chances of Mega Blaziken being banned? Do you think there will be any decent counters to make him OU again?

100%, Mega Blaziken is like a regular Blaziken on steroids so of course Smoron would ban it because it outclasses its favorite starter Infernape so much now. :p

No chance of him being in the OU tier, lol. Straight to Uber since you need the original Blaziken anyways holding the Blazikinite.

Mega Blaziken also has Speed Boost.....

If Gen 6 power creep catches up to him, he might fall back to earth.

Just take it for granted that he'll be banned. Higher attack the regular? Plus it has speed boost + swords dance. Sucks for regular blaziken fans, sense it's likely The mega will outclass the regular, but the regular will still be banned.

Wasn't Mew Uber in 4th gen? And it dropped to UU in 5th gen due to power creep?
And even without power creep, nerfs happen. For all we know, new Speed Boost only activates on a turn when you attack.

I'm really hoping for a decent amount of counters I really want to battle with Mega Blaziken

Depends a lot on the general status of Megaevolutions.
