Excadrill: 49 Ban, 22 Do Not Ban, 3 Abstain = 69.01% Ban
So as most of you know, Excadrill was banned just six days ago by Smogon's suspect voting process. The vote was above the supermajority threshold ([2/3]+1). This is a 350% spike in ban votes from last round. Myself, user epic_eevee, and user Thatsjustpeachy were the only known voters from Serebii for this specific round. I got my voting rights revoked for posting in the Pokémon voting thread "none of the abilities got banned so it's not like this any of this shit matters." However, epic_eevee and Thatsjustpeachy were still allowed to vote. epic_eevee voted to ban both Thundurus and Excadrill, and Thatsjustpeachy did not vote to ban anything.
To some of you, Excadrill being banned might not look important, but this is huge. We still have Drought and Drizzle out there, and their arch-nemesis in Tyranitar has been put out of place and made slightly less viable. Not to mention that Dragonite and Volcarona have one less check, and not to mention that heavy offense (Deoxys-S) isn't tampered by Excadrill screwing with the speed tiers anymore. I honestly don't think we're in for a "fixed metagame," if anything, we're in for another piece of trash round.
I'd like to explain the only valid voting template, at least in my opinion. Drought and Drizzle should've been banned. If Drought and Drizzle got banned, then suddenly Excadrill is a problem because it doesn't need to worry about losing its x2 boost to its speed it needs to sweep. So we ban Excadrill. But that also makes heavy offense a more valid playstyle, and with a dual screener that can almost always get up both screens and Stealth Rock down in Deoxys-S out there, we need to ban Deoxys-S. Dragonite and Volcarona aren't as unbeatable without weather (boosted Fire Punch / Waterfall, Fiery Dance / neutrality to water), although still troublesome since one of their checks is gone. Excadrill effected a massive part of the metagame. It could spin to fuck with stall, it could boost to fuck with balance, and just by being fast he fucked with offense.
So, how does everyone feel about a metagame without Excadrill?
