People that think garchomp is uber seriously need a better team. They can cry with their bibarels and say it's too hard to beat, but they are messing it up for the rest of us.
Because if not it just shows that you couldn't get to a high enough place on the ladder where people were using chomp correctly, just so you knowwww!
Also wtf everyone stop saying that you can use your ice types to counter chomp. THEY DON'T. Yes, this is a gen where not everything can have a hard counter, but if you're relying on say, weavile, mamoswine, or frosslass to "counter" chomp then you have an extremely garchomp weak team, since none of them can switch in, and they all outright lose to yachechomp. You're using Lati@s to check it? Fun stuffs, they lose to Haban Chomp or SubSD Chomp if it gets in a sub. Etc, etc.
Skill Link Icicle Spear obliterates Garchomp because only the first hit is reduced by the berry... Thats like 100 base power PER HIT for the ramaining hits.
I understand banning legendaries, banning garchomp is idiotic for me.
And banning him for the luck factor? ITS A GAME. Games always have a luck factor. Not all attacks have 100% accuracy right, critical hits are luck based, heck even damage calculation has a random factor on it. So what? Are we going to hack all way and remove all luck factor? Heck no! I've won thanks to (good) luck and have lost thanks to (bad) luck.

I never really cared about Garchomp. Excadrill is OU? WT*? Anyways, it'll be bad if they ban Thundurus.
Mahou Shoujou Megumi Magica
Something besides Shellder.
Hence why Phione is not better than Tentacruel.
ice types arent worth mentioning? lol... I also love when people act like you have 1 vs. 1 battles, like you can switch guys...and rattling off all these sets he has to counter everything in the world is kind of useless when you have a swords dance set with life orb let's say and out comes weavile. Here, let me pull out my pc boxes and switch sets, oh wait i can't....
Anyways, i guess the only problem i can notice with him was sand veil, which im not too concerned about but w/e, i guess this just gives my team a little less trouble not that i had much, so i'll just agree with him getting banned. I just can't see why garchomp is banned but latios isn't, kind of weird.
And lol nobody runs Life Orb on SD Chomp.
about time since it was starting to annoy me.
@ Maloswampert, Yeah It is Indeed about time. Garchomp is really starting to get annoying.
garchomp dosent get on my nerves, its not strong. I v OHKOd garchomp like 6 times with my choice scarf haxorus. (Dragon Claw)
On the other hand i hope they dont ban latios hes in my team XD
Eh... I don't really care about this "tug-of-war-tier" thing of Garchomp. I just use it in any battle.
Lots of Garchomps have paralysis support, making it's ability even more annoying.
And that's how you revenge kill it. How do you counter it? Haxorus is doomed if it swaps in on an Outrage or a Substitute.
I can't say I didn't anticipate Garchomp being sent to Ubers.
Salamence is most likely next - pity, really, I've been enjoying my WishMence.
No, I'm not giving anyone credit for my team pose because I made it myself.
Salamence isnt even as good as it used to be..Dragonite can actually be compared to it now with its new toys..and Moxie doesnt help it as much as Intimidate.
However Garchomp, I'll miss you...
hmm but to counter Garchomp you will need a higher speed than it.
Changing weather conditions or using trick room might work but still....
I'm still happy that it's banned even though I am raising one.
Credit goes to:
Tyranitarquake for the Banner!
No I was raising one with perfect IVs. DRAT.
I'm the best kid in the world. Okay? Any objection? Hmm..., over 9000. Oh....
Garchomp just needs to be outsped, one ice beam and its down, that is if your pokemon has good Sp. Atk.
