Thread: Is there a Possibilty of Ability Changes?

  1. #1

    Question Is there a Possibilty of Ability Changes?

    What I am asking is that with the new forms (Origin Form being the only only one actually confirmed) will the new forms contain different abilities? I was looking through a different section and saw people dogging of Reggigas' Slow Start Abilty. Or, will they alter such Abilities where they have good sides to them.

    no-one knows at the moment but if Regigas does get a new ability, like i think he will, his stats will suffer.

    I don't believe they can fix abilities like that.
    If they fix it whenever you trade it back to D/P it will still be the crummy Slow Start.

    They can't fix Slow Start but they can give it something else.

    Thank you for the information.



    So does that mean that new abilities are likely in Platinum? From what I can Remember R/S-> E did not contain new Abilities.

    RS -> Emerald didn't have them, but it is possible within the games' coding, and it could happen with the advent of new forms. Other than the new forms though, it's highly unlikely that "normal" Pokemon would get new ability choices.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Well if Shaymin gets a alternate form (either sky or ice) it will get a new ability that is more icy or skyish and i think Giratina Origin Form will get a new ability, but I don't know what.

    Not a sure thing but a possibility, it exists.

    But if I would guess, I'll say they won't change them (because of battling purposes.)

    One possibility is that he will have the inverse of slow start. like he will only be good for 5 turns. They could call it head start or something.

    I couldn't imagine them changing abilities, but maybe adding more to them in the over world, like in Emerald. Or maybe new abilities for different forms.

    Ability change is possible
    Ability addition is another story.

    Same battle argument. the "head start" or whatever that comes up is not programmed in DP, which makes D/P vs Platinum battles impossible.

    Ability change is like the actual hacks, best example is WonderTomb, it is possible battle against it because Wonder guard and Spiritomb are both programmed in the game.

    Same applies for the supposed Icy form for Shaymin. It may get an ice form, but it will never be Ice type, because Shaymin in DP is only programmed as Grass type, which makes it impossible to battle against.

    Hopefully there will be new abilities or at least ability changes to spice up Platinum.

    I hope abilities were slightly altered w/second effects, like in Emerald.

    Maybe change one ability to help find shinies? Or maybe one will increase your chances of finding rare pokemon in the wild, etc.

    You do have a point but it is still possible to change pokemon's types via pokesav. There isn't a control on there that let's you change the type, but if you give the Multitype ability and a certain plate then its type changes.

    So it is still possible for there to be a Shaymin Ice.

    If Regigigas gets Levitate, he will be in every other OU team, but now that Shaymin has a confirmed alt form, his own is probably no more than a rumor.

    what happened.

    So we get a new Uber? It's not like removing Regigas will destroy the current metagame. I'd love to see him with Levitate.

    sure, it's possible. If Regi does get Levitate, his stats will probably suffer.

    I hope Regigigas will get levitate (or any other ability for that matter!) without its stats having to suffer for it. I'd like Regigigas to be the decent Pokemon legendary that it was designed to be.
