The voting phase has now concluded, and Aegislash has been sent to ubers - but the real surprise is how close it was. A 60% supermajority was required, and Aegislash just barely obtained that passing grade, with 62%. I'll be honest: with the way people were hyping up how much everyone had to run something JUST for Aegislash, and how effective it was at single-handedly shutting down would-be top threats like Mega Gardevoir and such, I was expecting the ban to be a lot more clear-cut. Then again, this is why the threshold is 60% and not 50%. And you know what the fun part is? Apparently several voters changed their vote during the voting phase, mostly from OU to uber. So Aegislash was just that close to staying, it seems.
This verdict creates two questions. First, now that the so-called "broken" threats have a hard time meeting the threshold, will we be having some stability in OU, provided the aforementioned threats Aegislash countered so well don't start going on a rampage? And second, what does it mean for the Mega Gengar vote in ubers, what with the additional moral conundrum regarding exclusion of non-luck-based elements from ubers? The answers are probably going to come sooner rather than later.
