Smogon's tiering system in a nutshell by ChromeFlames Smogon's tiering system in a nutshell by ChromeFlames
So, this is how Smogon bans stuff, in a nutshell at least... Smogon ain't a singular entity that bans Pokemon to ubers just because they like it, but rather, a collective community of battlers that decide on how to shape their metagame...

You're still fine on the site if you don't like the bans as they offer plenty of information on Battle Spot/VGC rules as well.

Isn't EVERY Pokémon counterable? Besides, I don't see anyone stopping my from using my mega Kangaskhan, too... She's the only mega evolution I actually like... :(

Not really, a counter to a Pokemon should be able to switch in to a certain Pokemon, without fear of taking much damage and force it into switching.

Currently, there's not much that can do that to Mega Kangaskhan and even so, Mega Kangaskhan can has Earthquake to deal with Ferrothorn with iron barbs and rocky helm...

Also, if you could think about a counter to Mega Kang other than Ferrothorn, I would much appreciate it!

"I don't see anyone stopping my from using my Mega Kangaskhan, too..."

Well, that's the point of the second last panel of my comic, you can still use PSS or VGC if ya don't agree with any of those bans tho!
