Are face up monsters on spell/trap zone considered face up spells? So thats why crystal beasts would work?

Hamon needs Continuous Spells.

Monsters in S/T Zones are usually treated as Equip Spells.

CB works because they specifically stated they treat themselves as Continuous Spells.
I'll be annoyed if Hamon gets Transcendent Crystals nerfed

It's not meta btw and crystal beasts aren't too strong so it won't get nerfed

We have Red-eyes
We have Neos Fusion
We have Koa'ki Meiru
We have Survival's End
We have TRIAMIDS (F2P and can climb in DAY 1)
We have Dark Magician
We have Mermails
We have Subterrors
We have Ancient Gears
We have Crystrons
We have Cyber Dragon Beatdown + King of the Swamp
We have Gem Knights
Can crystal beasts be good in the meta again with hamon?

Not sure if meta, but they can be competitive, just search any video featuring Hamon :))

And yeah, the guy above is right, sadly.
You should try Reddit.

It’s easiest to summon Hamon in Crystal Beasts, but does not make the deck much/any better than it already is

Nah, the deck is better with Hamon than with Rainbow Dragon.

Hamon is Crystal Beasts new boss monster. A 4000 Atk & Def monster who requires 3 Continuous Spells on the field, deals 1000 burn damage every time he beats a monster and while it defense it protects your other monsters from attacks.
FYI, I tried but field spells do not count to summon this. In case someone was wondering.

That’s because field spells aren’t the same as continuous spells hunny
So will flip summons count towards the playmat for Hamon
