Smogon has decided to Ban Stealth Rock for Gen 6. I'm not entirely sure about why, but given how much it has dominated in the past, I'm honestly thankful. Charizard and Volcarona are finally usable. What are your thoughts?

I really don't think this is true
If Stealth Rock was gonna be banned, it would have been banned ages ago.

Look, I'm not 100% about it, but it's what I've heard. Apparently, they are testing it. And apparently, the tests are going well with the changes. So while you guys think I'm BSing you, I believe it to be legit.

I heard it in passing on the Showdown chat. So maybe this is false information, I was exited to hear it though given that Stealth Rock is dramatically overpowered for what it is. 1 Turn setup for a powerful entry hazard that hits almost everything, cripples some of the biggest hitters, ruins Focus Sash, and is only resisted by three types. Quite frankly, if I was misinformed, someone should look into making the false a fact because Stealth Rock is too good.

lol Stealth Rock will never be banned it's a staple for nearly every single team in existence, and don't forget Smogon love factoring it into their damage calcs. It is a good entry hazard, but is no way overpowered. In fact, by breaking Focus Sash's, it helps to stop them from being overpowered.

I mean sure some things would be better without SR, but in the end it isn't broken so we gotta accept it.
A bit of speculation on Showdown isn't really much to go by.  There would be a proper thread on Smogon talking about it but I can't find one.

Stealth Rock keeps alot of threats in check.

It's kinda needed to balance it, and the whole metagame is based around it.
Just because you heard it on chat doesn't mean its true, post a more reliable source.

may lock the thread cuz its kinda pointless.

...Okay, somebody delete this thread because I found out the origonal speculation I heard was based on a thread on Smogon that the person read that they didn't realize was dated back in 2008.
