I've been away from the metagame for a while. So tell me. why is it that Excadrill is Banned?

He is not that over powered in my opinion

He outspeeds pretty much everything in Sandstorm and can OHKO a large part of the metagame at +2. Those he can't OHKO are 2HKO'd and can't do a whole lot back if it's using an Air Balloon.

Pretty much the only things that could take him out were Banded Conkeldurr's Mach Punch and Banded Azumarill's Aqua Jet.

Dat speed he was the fastest pokemon left easy to switch in and set up and basically required a few certain pokemon to counter or revenge.

I could see him coming back down though

One opinion does not outweigh the opinion of the many.

Excadrill became a massive threat that was difficult to stop easily and overall overcentralized the metagame to a painful degree [though not as painfully as Garchomp].

Due to Excadrill's speed and power during the everpresent Sandstorm of the metagame, he was banned. Just as Garchomp was.

It was a pain in the ass when 70% of your opponents were running sand with excadrill on their team. Im glad hes banned.
