If you could create a Pokemon that's designed to mess with Smogon as hard as possible, how would you do it?
I'm thinking an ability that doubles all a Pokemon's stats 1/3rd of the time it goes into battle. Give it to something with Phione's stats.
The user does a spinning dive-bomb at the target, clearing all entry hazards on the opponent's side and returning the user to the Pokeball.
Exclusive to Delibird; Smeargle can't learn it.
Okay, get this its a bst all 100 legendary pokemon with a pure dark typing.
For every pokemon in the oppononents party, it gains+10 stats.
Even in ubers it would wreck shit.
Like a dark mew, it learn every move accesible.
I have a better idea:
>A "legendary" with 40/40/40/40/40/40 stats
>It gains +60 to all its base stats if the opponent has 5 Pokemon, or +100 if it has 6.
>people are forced to run only 4 Pokemon to deal with the little shit, turning every 6-6 match to 5-4
Mega Evolution with its attacking and defensive stats swapped, Sturdy and +100 Speed.
It outspeeds most Mold Breaker users, so unless you have a Cinccino you will need Stealth Rock and Sticky Web support to kill it. Which means an opposing Shuckle.
this would be hilarious
itd be broken even in ubers
Ability called brave fighter.
A small warrior pokemon that feels obselete unless he's outnumbered
And in triples/doubles it gains +50 for every opponent on the field
Introduce a new type that's immune to dragon and resists fig- OH WAIT
Anyway, how about a new move?
Inertia Boom. Normal-type. 60 BP, 5 PP, special.
If the opponent switched pokémon this turn, the opposing 'mon is phazed out. If that 'mon attacked, instead that 'mon is taunted and trapped for three turns.
Learned mostly by Psychic- and Normal-types.
>New Status move
>When a pokemon is blinded it's chance to hit with moves is halved
stacks with accuracy loss
>Available as a TM
>all pokemon capable of learning TMs can learn this ability
>I'm thinking an ability that doubles all a Pokemon's stats 1/3rd of the time it goes into battle
oh boy I can't wait for every battle to be
this was a thing in YGO: Falsebound Kingdom. except all moves always had a small chance of missing in that game. if you had a monster that could inflict blind, you won every time, as it reversed the odds of missing and hitting. seeing it in Pokemon would make me all kinds of moist.
Auto Trick room & Gravity Abilities
Item to make each last 8 turns
Intimidate like ability for other stats. i.e. Drops Sp.Atk etc.
If that guy meant altering every pokemon so that they only have moody as their ability, then I agree. If it's just creating a pokemon with moody as its only ability, then that won't really piss them off (thread started off with create a pokemon so I was confused initially).
My idea would be a pokemon that causes every pokemon from both teams to have a random chance of disobeying commands. The moment it's sent out, it infects all pokemon and the effect remains the whole match whether it's alive, active or KOed.
On 2nd thought, they'd just ban that too like with moody so just give every pokemon an innate disobedience mechanic. Or add in a trainer command "Dodge it <pokemon name>" to the game.
A new "room" move.
>Inertia Room: All attacks are stripped of priority, the Speed stat is nullified. Every attack during this effect is decided by a coin flip, like when there's a speed tie.
or some other, better name
Basically, it's Protean Stealth Rock.
Every time any move is used by any Pokemon, attack or status, this entry hazard changes type to match the move's type.
Also. modify Garchomp's natural ability to work like Speed Boost but for evasion, i.e every turn sandstorm is up and Chomp's in battle, it gets a Minimize equivalent boost. If you want to go postal and add DD or Extremespeed, sure, but IMHO that ability is more than enough. Congratulations, you've just turned one of Smogon's favourite posterboys against them.
Modified sand veil
-Dragon Claw/Outrage/Dragon Tail
Lead with eject button TTar, set up Sandstorm and Rocks, get hit, safely bring in Chomp. Proceed to boost Evasion/Attack. Kill everything in sight.
Ability that send out a random hazards on each turn
> Garbadour exclusive
Make an ability that gives the Pokémon the ability to change defensive and offensive stats.
If this pokemon is KOed, no matter how, the opposing pokemon feints as well.
>Talonflame used Overheat!
Also don't post like this, everyone knows who smogonbird is.
You missed the OP. It's different than "Make an ability that would get insta banned on any pokemon"
Freezes all pokemon on the field for 3 turns. Only Ice-type pokemon can switch out.
>What is Protect
A move that takes a slot. We're thinking full anime here where the trainer just screams dodge it periodically and the pokemon dodges 100% accuracy moves sometimes.
