Banning of evasion abilities/items

#1naruko243Posted 10/30/2013 11:49:05 PM
I can understand the banning of evasion moves but i feel like abilities and to a lesser degree items should be allowed. with the weather being nerfed its not nearly as broken and not all that many pokemon get access to them, and it takes up an ability slot. Ability items from what i understand only decrease it by 10% max i believe and takes up an item slot that could be used for something else. any opinions?

All the other threads seem to be focused on evasion moves.

Well Evasion Clause is a total ban. It covers evasion moves, items and abilities. Smogon does not do complicated bans. So basically you either have evasion or you don't. There are no specifics.

I still think that the whole "no complicated ban" thing is just lazy.

Its not that complicated of a ban, just ban the use of attacks.

Players are idiots, that's all you need to know.

Smogon does not ban evasion items or abilities. See here:


http://www.smogon.com/tournaments/tour/rules


"A player cannot increase their Pokémon's evasion stat with a move that specifically increases evasion. Items or indirect boosts do not break this clause."


So if you really want that brightpower or sand veil you can use them.
