They make things and ban pokemon (Blaziken) for the sake of balance, but then ignore Stealth Rocks, a move that COMPLETLY changes by the game by introducing a type hierarchy that makes some pokemon instantly useless.
Seriously what the f***.

They're in no way affiliated with Nintendo or GameFreak, so why do you care? Just don't use super ****** tactics online, that's what I do. By that I mean don't run with a team of legendary Pokemon, OHKO moves (especially on Pokemon that get Moody), stuff like that. Just don't use things YOU think are cheap or annoying, and sleep easy.

If you hate smogon, just ignore their meta. Jesus, it's not that hard, people.

I'm so sick of people acting as if they don't notice that nearly EVERY place that hosts competitive pokemon follows smogon's rules. It's not just smogon.com, you can go to rayquaza.forum-motion.com, pokecommunity.com, pokemon online, showdown etc... or ANY other competitive battling site and they all use smogon's rules and defend them like rabid fanboys. Then they laugh at you if you ask to have a normal battle and want to use your Excadrill/blaziken or mention on the forums that you think 4x stealth rock is a bit OP doing 50% damage making several pokes completely useless.

If anybody with any kind of influence or power in the meta-game would either call out smogon on their monopoly over making rules for competitive battles, or create their own system that's actually fair and makes sense then things would be just fine, but that hasn't happened because smogon has become so big and powerful that nobody can even challenge them anymore. (not without being laughed at or "smogon salt" joked at by closed minded morons)

I hate the people who whine about it when they can choose not to follow Smogon rules
