If a Pokemon is banned from Ubers, doesn't that mean they're banned from bans?

And thus a Pokemon banned from the Ubers banlist can no longer be banned from anything, and is usable in any tier. That's the only way this could make sense, since why ban something from a banlist otherwise?

If you're talking about Smug-on banning Mega Gengar from Ubers, just ignore it. They'll be banning most other Megas to Ubers eventually, so just leave them be like any sensible person should.

It is not unreasonable to ban a specific strategy from all formats due to being uncompetitive, including a banlist. An example is funbro.

Dude, look at how many Megas they've "banned" so far and how many more they're gunning for next. I've always known that Game Freak would introduce a mechanic so unbalanced that Smug-on couldn't handle it, and it finally came. With the sheer amount of Mega Evolutions they introduce with each new batch of games, I'm positive that at some point they'll lift the restriction of "one Mega used per battle", further disrupting Smug-on's precious metagame. Hell, if they eventually put a blanket ban on ALL Megas, it wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Yeah, is Mega-Gar Uncompetetive simply cause of his ability? there is Gothitelle and Wobbufet, and they are not only not being banned from Ubers, they kinda suck too.
