Unbanning Darkrai...?

Post by Enchidio on Sun Apr 10, 2016 6:45 pm

Goodness, I've never done a post like this before. Well, Darkrai needs to be unbanned.
Okay, not need, but it should be. Yveltal already beats it due to its superior bulk, Taunt, reliable recovery. Of course, Dark Void would be banned too. Even if Yveltal is banned, Darkrai should still be allowed.

Here are a few examples of Darkrai getting rekt (ignore everything after Darkrai unless you want to see how bad I am).
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-357331879 (Darkrai was almost one shot by Weavile, and right when it survives, Life Orb recoil kills it, thus allowing to only get one KO)
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-357340361 (Is Focus Blast seriously its best option against dark types? Anyway, if I used Nasty Plot, I would've been destroyed, and by wearing Darkrai down, it eventually fell.)
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-357348883 (Sure, it looks like a sweep, but compared to Yveltal, it's not so big.)
http://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/ubers-357349042 (Darkrai getting rid of one Pokemon isn't that huge compared to Pokemon like White Kyurem, Yveltal, Mega Gengar, or even Mega Banette.)

Give me your opinions on unbanning Darkrai and any complex bans should apply, like banning Dark Void. ... ... Hypnosis Darkrai for AG. Yeah, delete this if you want.

1. Weavile and Darkrai have a speed tie; in the case of Darkrai outspeeding, it would've OHKO'd and thus been able to continue the battle.
2. Focus Miss is unreliable, yes, but that doesn't have anything to do with Darkrai's viability other than that it has to use it because other than HP Fighting there isn't anything else.
3. I think your definition of a sweep is different to everyone else's. Wrong replay, maybe?
4. Your playing style in this battle is rather inefficient. Of course Excadrill outspeeds Darkrai in Sand, not sure why Mandibuzz wasn't brought in for it each time it was out.

I actually don't have anything against Darkrai being unbanned; however, I don't want faulty reasoning to be why it would be allowed to be used. A lot of times in these replays you allowed your Pokemon to faint when another would easily have tanked the hit. I don't mean to make this sound like a personal attack, but my point is that when you allow Darkrai (or any other mon) to die - without it needing to be sacrificed - it doesn't really show off that mon's capabilities.

I also have to add that "this mon's sweep isn't as cool as another mon's" is NOT a legitimate reason whatsoever.

Alright, I'll use more shit in those replays or whatever. I'm still on unbanning Darkrai, though.
