    Pokemon to have it : primeape the hitmon's(top, chan etc) and pupitar

    Chivalry: Ocasionaly takes damage for a female pokemon in double battles, lets ALL female pokemon move first,won't attack female pokemon, strength is greatly increased when battling a male pokemon

    Pokemon to have it- Happiny, Pichu, basically all baby Pokemon.

    Bewilder: Lowers opponents Special attack when entering the battle

    Pokemon to have it: Mantine, Dusknoir, Spinda, Tentacruel, Cradily

    May be my opinion, but having this ability on these pokemon would really help balance out the game, reducing the amount of Blisseys...maybe..>_>
  4. FireStormCharizard

    I would like to see an ability or move that allows you to attack when you switch in. Not to be used in conjunction with U-Turn or Batton Pass though.

    That is all I can be bothered to think of right now.

    FlameTrainer, your Fierce Rage ability is too strong. Give a pkmn Focus Sash and Swords Dance first turn and endure the second and it's attack would be up 4 stages (300%). It would unbalance the metagame. Especially if so many pkmn had it as you suggested.

    itsme (ノ@皿@)ノ ~ lolwut?

    An ability that can automatically detect haxed or gs/ar pokemon.
  14. Darkmaster Rannon

    Darkmaster Rannon Thundercats Hoo!

    yes, lets give a pokemon who amy be hacked that ability, right :surfpika: WEEEE!

    anyway the people who suggested more abilities for legendaries, face it it will never happen because if there is only one of something in the game, then how they hell are you gunna get it? and if arceus ability is changed, then he can't use the plates
  15. .Person.
