@takeru takaishi
I think (or at least I hope), that it will become uber again.
Why? Simple, just take a look at the Shoddy usage statistics for the last month(s): Things like Scarf Tyranitar, which would have been a gimmicky set at best in the metagame before latias are actually standard pokemon at the moment. Same with OU staples like Scizor and the likes, as long as they counter Latias(or at least a specific set) in a way, they are bound to be used a lot.
What am I trying to say? Latias overcentralizes the metagame. It's not balanced at all, because certain pokemon are found in every other team.
While not being as broken as something like Garchomp for example, I believe that Latias has changed the metagame to the worse and makes it much less enjoyable.

I personally want it to say in OU. I don't see broken in OU, like all psychics it's pursuit bait, and there are things that can wall it and counter. I think people just want it out of OU so they don't have to deal with it.

Edit: Also we're not accepting any more members since when this clan and EP merges, we'll have a full amount. I'm taking fullmetal off the list because he isn't active.

It is of my personal opion that i do not have the sufficient evidance to see that latias is truly uber or ou. As for overcentralistion that dose not chercterise an uber under the three charecterstics but implies uberness in it's self.

For my other opion I rather like latias, ignoring the fact she is some what scizor bait and tyranitar bait, she dose serve as a check for sevral threats in the metagame and can server as sweeper clam mind passer, ect ect. I do take issue with the fact I have to build my team that abnormally little bit more just for latais, and at the same time she fits perfectly into some of my teams. Now that i have gotten used to the idea of a latias free metagame I don't really care if she is baned or not now as i have been working on viable replacements for her and it will ease team building.

scar tar is high in use for other reasons other than to bring death to latias. I personally don't think it would plumit in useage past the 20% mark after a latias ban

Yeah, except I don't need to fill out a form because that's just the way I roll. 8]
New members are always good, but Puh-Tree-Cee-Oh, we needed you to specify your competitive battling experience.
Steve, you need to check out Heathen's new album, particularly the song No Stones Unturned. It's eleven and a half minutes of American Thrash Metal, and Prog. Metal goodness. \m/
Friend coming over in like an hour, so yeah, won't be active like any more today, or tomorrow.

Oh yeah, I was kind of excited that people were posting and joining that I kind of forgot :x We do need to see if you have the basic knowledge of competitive battling. Cool I'll check it out. You need to check out As I Lay Dying's new album. It's the best album I've heard all year.

Hi! Are you no longer recruiting? I saw there were some spots still open, and I was thinking about joining.

We're having a clan merge, so there aren't any spots open. However, stick around for a while. I have some members that rarely post, so I'm thinking about kicking them.

As for the new thread, that'll be up in a mo. Sorry about the delay, life has been different these past few days.

It's absolutely fine. xD As long as you aren't inactive for a week without warning, you're still in the clan.

Near and Vanity, please post soon. I'm giving you guys a three day limit before I'm kicking you.
