Nope, Smogon shouldn't make rash split second decisions.

Kinda shocking that 80% of the people here think neither are broken.

Neither are broken.

Khan would almost be broken, if he didn't have a fighting weakness, didn't turn into a suicide machine upon facing rocky helmet + iron barbs/rough skin shenanigans, and didn't become stupidly weak when attempting to attack aegislash.

Gengar is like, not broken at all.

This.

I agree with banning Blaziken, but not these two.

So you guys don't think PerishTrap is a huge b**** to defensive teams?

Being super effective against one type of strategy doesn't make anything broken, it just means that is the weak spot of the strategy.

Mega gengar is broken since it wins in 79 out of 99 common match ups in the metagame, and because you can't switch out you can't prepare for it "switch before it evolves" works once. and since gengar is a very usable pokemon on its own you have to predict that it is the mega which on some teams can be a bit challenging.

once it evolves however, every time you get a kill and it comes in, about 80% of the pokemon commonly used in the OU meta are going to be killed.

Only way you could possibly prepare for it is if you have 6 pokemon that all counter mega gengar and that is completely unrealistic.

heres the thing about gengars.
They are glass cannons. They can dish out a serious amount of damage and annoyance, but one hit is all it takes to KO them.

kanga's are really easy to deal with, just have a strong attacker with either bulk to survive 2 powerful hits, or speed to KO before it hits you.
