I wouldn't exactly call 65/65/95 defenses and normal typing all that "good" defensively. It's got a really good ability, and some nifty moves like Rapid Spin, U-turn and Wish...but I don't think it's in OU to stay. It's usage is going to take a plummet after shiny toy syndrome wears off.
PO/PS Name?: T-Bolt
Wi-Fi Friend Code?: none
Why do you want to join?: I got into competitive battling again in gen 7 and I don't really have a lot of people to play with. I remember this guild from way back so I figured, why not join?
Number of badges of Serebii Leagues?: zilch
Battling Experience?: Used to play back in BW, though I'm not particularly amazing.
Among all the crazy new offensive threats Gen 7 brought, Landy-I really didn't feel like the most troublesome. I get the impression it only got the quickban because a) it was easy to justify by pointing out its lack of counters, and b) it was banned previously and so it was a safe bet.
I just wish these quickbans were coming out sooner, though. The novelty of all the new pokemon is starting to wear off for me and I just want the metagame to settle from its super broken state in which offense is the only really viable team archetype.
^ Hrm, i'd go for Fire Punch over Ice, no? Just think that Steel coverage is more appreciated is all. The Ground/Flyings are much easier to wear down for boosted Iron Head to pick off anyways whereas the steels could prove more troublesome as a few of them could just recover stall/status.
