Basically the argument here is that Talonflame can almost 6-0's by itself mono-grass, bug and fighting thanks to Gale Wings+Brave Bird spam.

I'm pretty sure this will open up a huge can of worms because there are plenty of pokemon in mono-type that can 6-0 entire types by themselves too (like Infernape pretty much dismantles mono-steel by itself).
What's your opinion about it?

Neutral, because I don't compete in those battles and so this doesn't affect me.

Decision was made by a single individual on genuine slippery slope style logic as opposed to Smogon's generally careful testing of other tiers or blatant brokenness of things in other tiers

It's already a weird format and I understand how the smaller playerbase makes prolonged suspect testing effectively impossible but I dunno how I feel about this one

Smogon should stop trying to balance these "for fun" meta games. Not only do they do a bad job at it, but they aren't meant to be balanced.

Didn't even know they had mono-type metagames in Smogon. Either way, this doesn't affect me. I stopped caring about Smogon's rules long ago.

My opinion about it is that it makes little difference as I have only ever played Monotype thrice and I used Ice-type teams and I never ran into one mono-Flying.
So... I never thought I'd get to change this sig. But I have a Shiny of each Eeveelution now!

As someone who plays monotype competitively, i'm very upset. Usually I'm not the type of person to bash Smogon, but this ruling is stupid. Wow, a pokemon can single handedly 6-0 types that are weak against him? LETS BANNED HIM! Stupid
