Except Smogon hates complex bans.


I wouldn't exactly call an ability ban a complex ban. After all, they already have a Moody ban, why not a Gale Wings ban?


Moody is banned because it is entirely luck-based(something smogon thinks is "unhealthy" which moody totally is).
I guess you could ban gale wings, but then again the only bug and grass types(the one's that Smogon considered when banning Talonflame) that outspeed Talonflame are Ninjask, Accelgor, and Shamin-Sky. It also outspeeds all usable Fighting types, but then again there's always Scarf.

Honestly, I don't even understand how talonflame can 6 v 0 a mono grass team. Even if it were to spam brave bird, the recoil would kill it within about 3 KOs. And assuming it has roost, that would give the grass team the chance they need to take it out in one shot.

Except that there are other 5 pokemon in Talonflame's team.

At least this. Smogon needs to keep a consistent policy for all its meta games. If an ability or item is the reason for a pokemon being broken, ban the ability or item unless it's shared by a non-broken pokemon. I really support smogon, but this is a legitimate reason to lose their trust.
