Discuss the possibility of Gengarite being banned from the SM Balanced Hackmons tier. As in the current Balanced Hackmons tier, Ability Shadow Tag is banned, but Gengar can mega evolve into Shadow Tag Gengar-Mega while holding Gengarite, and this is what the discussion is about. Do not diverse the discussion by talking about Gengar-Mega starting in its mega form and with abilities like normalize, dazzling or mold breaker etc. Use this thread to discuss Gengarite / Shadow Tag Gengar-Mega's effect on the metagame. Talk about the different sets it can use, possible partners and team support, and potential checks and counters(trapping by definition has no counters but please elaborate on Gengarite's impact instead of only saying it has no counters). State your opinion on whether you think it should be banned or if it should stay in SM Balanced Hackmons. All opinions are valid, and discussion amongst players is not only allowed but encouraged, provided your judgment is backed with sound reasoning and validation coming from experience having played with / against Gengarite / Shadow Tag Gengar-Mega in the tier. Do not simply say "it's broken" or "it's not broken”, and do not make arguments via theorymoning. Check out the sample sets for Gengarite / Shadow Tag Gengar-Mega if you want to give it some more test.
