    After a discussion with the Tier Leaders, we have decided to ban all the moves whose sole effect is confusion or infatuation; these are: Confuse Ray, Flatter, Supersonic, Sweet Kiss, Teeter Dance and Attract.

    (This also includes the previously banned Swagger).

    The aforementioned moves contribute nothing to the competitive aspect of the game, and basically turns the came into a series of coinflips. We feel like there is enough RNG involved in the game already, we don't need these moves to compound the 'luck' factor anymore.

    List of tiers affected:
    ORAS Ubers/OU/UU/LU/NU/Monotype/Inverted Battle/3v3 Singles/Sky Battle/ORAS 1v1

    Have fun with a less-RNG based game from now on (not really)!

    In light of the recent discussion in MD forums regarding items/moves that solely involve luck, the community has decided to ban the following items: Bright Powder and Lax Incense from the ORAS tiers under Evasion clause. They are purely RNG-influencing items that have no place in competitive pokemon.

    After an animated discussion within the community we have decided to ban the following items: King's Rock and Quick Claw from all ORAS tiers except LC. They are luck-based items which hinder competitive play and posses the ability to decide the outcome of a match in just a couple of turns by influencing RNG, and thus will be banned from competitive mons.
