Skymin's Air Slashes are in a tier of its own. Togekiss's are frightening too, but to group them together like that is unfair to the Togekiss.

>>20811796
M-Sceptile's 4x Electric resist doesn't make it magically less resistant to Thunderwave. Lightning Rod does (while also being its only way to boost SpAttack in a meta with Volt Switch).

>>20819095
Normalize lets it Thunderwave Ground types at 100% accuracy and bypass the Elec-absorbing abilities. Also technically gives you STAB on all offensive moves, but it lacks good powered moves with great secondary effects to abuse it with.

>>20819131
Gen 5 rain stall honorary member. Also, fungus and mushrooms thrive, if not require, damp and moist conditions to grow. Still great in Rain, which also weakens its Fire weakness, and you resist Water so it's less of a liability. You never say no to a free switch-in in a meta where Scald/Surf/Hydro Pump exist.

>>20822431
You mean no Physical secondary ability move pool. It gets STAB Energy Ball. It technically gets Bounce for nice paralysis, but hopefully move tutors in ORAS will give it things like Body Slam or Zen Headbutt.
>>
>>20818869
>not using contrary shell smash

>>20818954
You know what if they actually decided to give each Rotom form its own ability? Wouldn't that be pretty cool?

It might help improve all the other forms.

The bitter tears of Rotom Wash losing Levitate would be so delicious if it is really that big of an impact

The decision to nerf Explosion and assigning Damp to Jellicent probably did not occur at the same time in Gen V, so there was still possibly a reason to keep HA Damp around. Should have still gotten the Scolipede treatment in Gen VI.

Look at Primape's movepool. Mixed is startlingly effective.
>>
>>20818954
Someone already said Motor Drive. Volt absorb would also be a good one. So would Static, Own Tempo, Soundproof (because fans are loud), hell, even Sturdy might make a little sense. If you want to make it really stupid, though, you could do Sand Stream under the assumption that it blows debris everywhere.
>>
>>20819042
You can still paralyze electric types with Body Slam. Now Stunfisk can't be Body Slammed into paralysis. Glare too. He also gets around Glare.
>>
>>20829647
Wash gets Storm Drain.
Heat gets Analytic (He needed the Levitate the most, though)
Lawnmower gets Hyper Cutter, because it makes sense, but sucks.
Refridgerator gets Refridgerate because it makes sense and is stupid, but at least gets STAB Hyper Beam.

How's that?
>>
>>20829610
Bounce isn't bad in game. 60% paralyze is pretty good plus coverage. But you might want to make room for Megahorn eventually.
And how many Rock Smash attacks do you need until the defense lowering makes up for the difference in power compared to Jump Kick?
>>
>>20811796

/thread

At least Delibird's redundant abilities and all of the garbage flying type abilities do something, even if it's not much. Limber actually does nothing. I'd argue it's even worse than levitate rotom-s, since if on the off chance Rotom mimics a roost, it's still immune to ground types.

Inb4 corner case that will never come up.
>>
>>20836832
>Rotom mimics a roost
Rotom can't learn Mimic. So there's no case in which Levitate would do anything for Rotom-S.
>>
>>20836832
What about if Stunfisk got its type changed? That's a lot more likely.
