I like to EV train my Pokemon, etc. but I don't necessarily compete so M-Rayquaza being banned doesn't really affect me.

Besides, I haven't even captured him in Omega Ruby yet

Mega Raquaza's stats and ability are so ridiculous it couldn't even belong in Ubers. It's cool that Ubers is a tier, it doesn't really matter to me i don't play Showdown I like to play my hard copy of Alpha Sapphire with a Powersaves to save me a lot of time raising shiny battle mons that would otherwise take DAYS to breed/hatch.

As for that new tier Anything Goes...It'll be filled with either the most OP pokemon ever created OR the cheekiest bastard pokemon teams such as a

MRayquaza + Arceus + PGroudon, + PKyogre + Darkrai + Lugia

then for the cheeky bastard TROLL teams...probably some swagger, foul play, thunder wave Klefkis and some Spore, Sheer Cold @ Focus Sash Smeargles...along with some accuracy related mother****ery.

It's a good move by Smogon.
780 BST, and can hold an item.
Ubers would've been centralized around who can set up their M-Rayquaza the fastest.

M-Ray was just far too good for ubers. Alongside killer offensive base stats and set-up moves, overal movepool, abilty plus newfound bulk, this bastard could still hold an item being the first unrestricted 720+ pokemon. Even Arceus has restrictions in the form of either a useless item slot or useless ability. So yeah, super strong poke. Overcentralized the metagame too much
