I don't want it banned but it does seem inconsistent that Aegislash gets banned when Talonflame isn't, when it's pretty much the same deal with each.

It counters too much--does this need further explanation?

It's a 50/50 mind game--Is Talonflame going to Brave Bird, or Will-O-Wisp, U-Turn, Swords Dance, Bulk Up?

I shouldn't have to outpredict my opponent! OMG ban plz!

He's right about Talonflame being uncompetitive. Even if it's not amazing, its existence makes several Pokemon significantly harder (if not downright impossible) to use.


like what


Breloom is a prime example. Chesnaught would be better without Talonflame too.
Heracross too.
Basically, anything with low defense, a weakness to Flying, or no priority of its own is made harder to use simply because of Gale Wings.


When you think of pokemon that are 'significantly hard, if not impossible to use' your mind jumps to breloom and keldeo??

Where I'm from, Keldeo's banned and I haven't fought a Breloom since Gen 5.
Talonflame's existence definitely makes some Pokemon harder to use.
