    Gardevoirite, Galladite, and Lopunnite were recently released. Gardevoirite and Galladite are quickbanned from SM LU—Lopunnite is already banned from LU because it was quickbanned in SM UU.

    Altarianite and Ampharosite have been released, so they are usable in LU now.

    Also, the Suicune and Crawdaunt suspects will be closing soon but nobody has posted yet, so if you want to see them leave the tier, you need to post.
