    How good will be certain Pokémon if they had certain ability/move(s)/typing?

    Dragon Rush is weaker than Outrage, although admittedly having no drawbacks besides the poor accuracy. Regardless, Dragon STABs aren't nearly as valuable to Dragonite as they used to be now that it has a reliable Flying move. I don't think a perfectly accurate Dragon Rush would be nearly enough...

    Magnezone isn't a Pokemon that particularly needs to cover its weaknesses to succeed. It has one specific but important niche (trapping Steel-types) and it has adequate tools to accomplish that niche. Additional coverage options would be nice but not particularly necessary for Magnezone to be a...

    How good will be certain Pokémon if they had certain ability/move(s)/typing?

    0 Atk Celesteela Heavy Slam (100 BP) vs. 0 HP / 0 Def Dragonite: 114-135 (35.2 - 41.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO Granted, Dragonite doesn't do much in return unless it's packing Fire Punch, but Multiscale doesn't change that. The bigger problem would be that Dragonite barely benefits from No Guard...

    How good will be certain Pokémon if they had certain ability/move(s)/typing?

    I agree, it was more the implication that it would eclipse Smeargle and Shuckle as a hazard setter that I don't agree with. Fast Spore definitely has uses on its own. I could see it being extremely annoying in doubles, and it gets plenty of other support moves to abuse as well.

    How good will be certain Pokémon if they had certain ability/move(s)/typing?

    This probably wouldn't be competing with Chansey/Blissey or Toxapex but rather with Clefable. While it does boast significantly higher special bulk than Clefable, Clefable has a vastly better movepool with important moves like Stealth Rock, Teleport, and an array of coverage options that will...

    Rumors & Leaks - Speculation/Discussion Thread

    The former. We already knew they were professors. Also Khu talking about loli and fur fetishes probably disproves my long-running theory of him being a GameFreak employee intentionally leaking cryptic information to drum up interest in upcoming games. I'm genuinely curious who he actually is...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    There are certain 3rd party Pokemon MMOs that it's probably against the rules for me to name that came out in that timeframe. I think a lot of players (myself being one of them) played them and realized they kind of suck, and a Pokemon MMO might not be as amazing as we think it would be. Plus...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    I think there's a bit of a difference between having one single city in a 2D sprite-based 256x192 resolution game having a different design and having the entire game in a 3D-modeled 1280x720-res game having a different design. You'd basically need the graphics team to design two entire games in...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Smoliv and Lechonk... The low effort memes write themselves. If I'm being 100% honest I'm not the biggest fan of the names that have been revealed so far, but the designs are alright. I like that they gave the Scarlet dinosaur feathers. EDIT: Something that I noticed is that the Scarlet...

    Tsareena's 50% held item rate

    The Compound Eyes user has to be first in your party when you start the battle for the boost to apply. Lead with Butterfree instead. 22 encounters dry is still very unlucky even without the Compound Eyes boost though. I'm sure you already did but in the off chance you didn't, make sure your...

    Winnie the Pooh enters the public domain and gifts us this beauty

    Can't be much worse than any other so-called "horror" movie these days.

    U.S. Politics 2021: Ignore the Neighslayers

    Hawaii absolutely requires a gun license to purchase a firearm, and is a may-issue state (I.E. you need to provide a valid reason for wanting to own a firearm when applying for a permit, which can be denied at the authories' discretion). What you might be thinking of is "constitutional carry"...

    Keldeo really hasn't gotten any new toys since its debut in Gen 5, and unfortunately Gen 8 doesn't really break that trend. Keldeo received no notable new moves and doesn't benefit all that much from Dynamax, outside of being able to set up rain. Toxapex is still just as widely used as ever, and...

    10 people dead, 3 wounded in Buffalo, NY in a racially motivated mass shooting at a grocery store in a predominantly Black neighborhood. The shooter was wearing full tactical gear including body armor and livestreamed the shooting to Twitch. A security officer fired multiple times at the...

    The Professor Oak in the Kanto games is an Imposter Theory

    This reads more like fan fiction than a theory, but I guess the two go hand in hand. That being said, this entire elaborate theory is based on... Uh, what exactly? The fact that there's an Imposter Oak card in the TCG? What about the dozens if not hundreds of other TCG cards that correspond to...
