Discuss the possibility of Manaphy being banned from the XY UU tier. Use this thread to discuss Manaphy's effect in the metagame. Talk about the different sets it can use, his best partners/team support and potential checks & counters. State your opinion on whether you think Manaphy should be banned or if it should stay in the XY UU tier. All opinions are welcome to be presented, and arguments may be shared between players, as long as you back it up with knowledge and experience and refrain from making your entire points based on responses to others. Theorymonning is not a valid argument and anyone who bases their opinion in it risks being infracted. If you are relatively new to this kind of environment, i suggest you read these guidelines. Note: It has been agreed that the UU suspect discussions will follow a different regime on a trial period, to see how the playerbase adapts to it. This thread will be open for two weeks, until the 11th of April, and until then the player will be free to discuss. When the two weeks period ends, i will post screenshots of the ladder rankings from that day, showing every account with 1350 points or more in our ladder. This will be decisive for a vote, where players may claim their accounts and vote for either a ban or a no ban of certain pokemon. The goal with this system is to optimize the discussion, as implementing a vote in case of undecision right after the discussion is over takes away the 1 week waiting for the player to ladder to get a good ranking. With this regime, players have to ladder throughly throughout the discussion, which allows them to gather more experience, and values their decision in case a vote has to be implemented. This system will only be used in a lack of consensus. The Tier Leaders will read the thread after the two weeks period and decide if the clear majority of the player agree on a certain stance.
