With Doubles OU banning Dynamax, Ubers (if restricted), National Dex AG, Balanced Hackmons and Doubles Ubers are the only few smogon formats where you can use Dynamax.

Do you think Dynamax is broken or do you think it adds competitive depth? Personally, I find Dynamax to be too overbearing.

How come you guys don't like Fairy Type?

>rejecting physical affection

Wow! What are you, like…gay??

>light

Objectively uninteresting concept. First of all it's not like they can do religious-y concepts in these kid's games, second the inspiration for Light attacks would be pretty barebones, and third of all adding Light so late into the franchise makes a lot of things look awkward. Lanturn for example can't exactly lose Electric to gain light. and wasn't Lanturn a more unique creature for using electricity as light, instead of just having a Light Type?

Truthfully the physical light concept of Light was already handled by Electric, Fire and occasionally Psychic Types, and the 'moral light' concept is handled by Fighting being heroic and Fairy being innocent.

You have to remember: this is a series about collection MONSTERS. So Fairy is really so much better than Light because it treads on similar concepts while offering a whole slew of mythological creatures to base monsters on. It's like Dragon or Ghost. It's a whole sort of mythical being that has rich creature lore to draw from and cultural history behind it. Light would never have that.

They 100% could see: Digimon. Gamefreak just won't since they want to play everything as safe as possible. I agree though that everything interesting in the concept of Light is already covered by several other types.

>Pikachu
Obviously needs to be in.

>PKMN Trainer
The most interesting representative, and the perfect way to incorporate the main aspect of the series whilst also adding in 3 of the most iconic Pokemon lines all at once.

>Mewtwo
Super-iconic Pokemon whilst also not being a starter of any form. Good rep.

>Lucario
One of the series' biggest mascots now, and also not another Gen 1 rep.

>Greninja
Extremely popular even before its inclusion in Smash. One of few shillmons to remain popular to this day. Deserves to stay in.

Greninja is still my best and most-played Smash character period, even after I finally got my most-wanted (Banjo) after waiting over two decades. The amount of flexibility and speed the frog's moves offer really are underappreciated, it's a shame.

Yokai Watch kind of got shafted because Level-5 couldn't deal with the IP properly, apart from the international appeal.

Basically, an anime was running for a game that wasn't even out and when it released the anime had ended, the games were having some bugs anyway, and so on. I'm starting to feel bad for him because he's sitting here saying XY and XY&Z failed yet it's one of the most liked Pokemon series in Japan.

You ever realize Pokemon started very sci-fi based but then moved more and more toward fantasy elements?
In gen1 there are labs, cloning, power plants, digital pokemon like Porygon, mechanical pokemon like Magnemite, TMs/HMs. What made Pokemon shift from science to fantasy?

I read it when it was first posted. It's still bullshit because
>As a complex ban, simply banning Speed Boost on Blaziken is easy for most players to obey. So citing complexity as the reason for banning the whole mon smells funny.
The meta already has precedent bans on AT, Moody and ST, so banning an ability that only one mon has is something even smooth brains can understand.
>>
>>43235539
The issue isn't the coinflip. That's probably why, but stalling with confusion and protect are not much different. The main difference is evasion has very clear widespread counterplay. Evasion would become meta, which would make the counterplay would be meta. Having to pack swift on your choice sweepers or odor sleuth/taunt on your support sounds like something the community doesn't like.
>>
>>43239340
Banning Speed Boost Blaziken isn't on the same level as the other three ability bans. You're banning a specific component of a Pokemon rather than the ability as a whole and to ban the ability you'd need to justify that it's uncompetitive in every single instance.
>>
>>43239370
>Banning Speed Boost Blaziken isn't on the same level as the other three ability bans.

What's your point? My point was that Smogon has no consistency in their bans, given their explanations.
If you look at their Gen VII banlist, there are only two mons who fit the mold of "broken with x ability". Those mons are
>Blaziken
>Landorus-I
Already I smell bullshit with the "exceptional circumstances" argument on ability bans. There are three ability bans in Moody, Arena Trap and Shadow Tag.
That means the exceptions outnumber the supposed "rule" that they ban the Pokemon and not the ability.
But wait, there's more.
Sand Veil was banned in Gen V under the excuse that evasion is uncompetitive, yet unbanned in Gen VI while Moody remained banned.
Moody, which only gives the potential for an evasion boost and was only carried on shitmons, while Sand Veil was carried on Garchomp, a legit OU mon.
Where's the consistency. There isn't, because the council is blatantly dictating based on their personal preferences, and only using thin, contradictory excuses to feign legitimacy.
I could even accept all this if they gave decent excuses, but they're not even trying to hide that it's all about power.

Megas were a fucking sensation. The gimmick was brought back in multiple games and there are statistics that prove people like them. if someone could find them for me i would be so grateful because i can't at the moment. And forcing to commit to one pokemon as your ace who you really like is what makes mega evolution so cool. not only that they introduced megas by carefully selecting pokemon that are many peoples fan favorites and where in the pokemon of the year list aswell. for example. Gengar, charizard, Lucario. You can choose the one you like the most and build a balanced team around it. you literally make no sense. infact i love swampert. he's my ace. heres a balanced team i built around him. Grass/fire/water core. Two walls and some speedy pokemon. Agreat mix of offense and defense with good type coverage and only one or two weaknesses. I swear gamefreak can't win with some of you. Go back to playing Zelda or someshit.

I wanna see something

1. Post your buddy Pokemon
2. Can be from any game
3. Try to be realistic. For example, don’t choose a Sharpedo as your buddy pokemon because it physically cannot walk by your side without water.
4. Try to choose one that is Fully evolved as possible.
5. At the end I will choose a winner! Have fun
