Game Freak institutes a change. Flying types and Pokemon with Levitate are no longer immune to Ground a types moves. Instead, moves are reclassified into moves that travel across and affect the ground and moves that are thrown or fired, in addition to the existing separation of moves that make physical contact and moves that don't.
Flying and Levitate are now immune only to the former.
Earthquake, Magnitude, et all are classified as ground-affecting moves, while moves like Mud Bomb and Mud Shot are fired and can now hit Pokemon in the air. However, moves like Surf and Sludge Wave are now "travel across the ground" and aerial Pokemon are now immune to them.
How does the metagame change? Would you be in favor of this?
