    Still has Drain Punch, Focus Punch, Dizzy Punch, and Comet Punch. Drain Punch and Dizzy Punch are good at least.

    I hope Shuckle learns Shell Smash through the move tutor. Then it'd actually have some use. But there is a way for it to gain attack. Power Trick and Power Split.

    SERPERIOR HAS LEAF STORM!!! LEAF STORM!!!! THREE LEAF STORMS AND YOU'RE AT MAXIMUM SP. ATK!!! Sorry, that was major abuse of the Caps Lock, but I really want a Contrary Serperior.

    Spinda gets Superpower in the Dream World. Just like the Leaf Storm.

    Ledian also has Base 35 Attack. Good luck.

    On the contrary, i hope they discontinue the Dream World and implement some better way to obtain pokemon with special abilities. I don't want to scoop ice cream for igglybuff. i've just been trading to get my DW pokes

    Lol, what's with the hate for Contrary Serperior?

    It really doesn't need huge offenses to succeed when it gets a +2 boost every time it uses its powerful 140 base power STAB move. It also has decent defenses and great speed to compliment. Sure its coverage sucks, but you'd be surprised how hard it is to switch into a set of Leaf Storm/HP Fire/Substitute/Leech Seed. It can even shut down Pokemon like Heatran, who would otherwise destroy it.

    Personally, all Gen V starters need more BSTs in some way or have them completely altered.

    First, Emboar needs to lose 40 points of that SpAtt and get it redistributed into every other stat, preferably defense. Furthermore, 3 more points can be added on to HP to give it a bit more bulk. and the ideal spread would be 113/123/85/60/85/65 for a total of 530. This would make him surprisingly bulky and allows it to better Bulk Up and Choice sets.

    Second, Samurott needs to have its HP and Speed stat switched and 5 points taken from defense and 3 points added to Attack. The defense points get redistributed to the altered speed of 95, leaving the spread at 70/103/80/108/70/100 for a total of 530. While he's much frailer, he can effectively abuse a mixed set now and actually use those nice offense stats without Speed hindering it. It can slap a Scarf on to become an awesome revenge killer, Swords Dance with an Aqua Jet to be an amazing Sweeper/Revenge Killer.

    Surprisingly, I really have no complaints with Serperior. 8 points to HP can be useful to make it slightly more bulkier as well as leave its BST at 535.

    Probably because all of the noobs want it, a good chunk of good players assume it's a gimmick. Zoroark is very popular among noobs, but it actually isn't half bad in OU.

    I have to do them on the lab top because my desk top sucks.

    A lot of games aren't all that great on the laptop...I get them from trading as well.

    Although "You don't need type coverage when you can get to 800+ Special Attack in 2 turns" is generally true, double resistances, relying on hidden power, and that Serperior isn't lightning fast do hurt it.

    If Serperior got Power Gem, though...

    Counterpoint, Fearow and Sniper. Sweet feebas I 70%-to-0'd an Evolite Chansey because of that. Evolite Chansey.

    There were far too many slam dunk abilities for it not to be intentional. You don't take away Groudon and Kyogre's signature effects otherwise. The problem is that a lot of them were dumb, either because Game Freak didn't want to give out the same 10 abilities to everyone, or they were on and off in their being smart about it.

    Or has rock-bottom attack. Who was sleep deprived (At least I hope that's what it was) in that brainstorming session?

    Not to mention that when the Wi-Fi goes down Black and White will be even more incomplete than Ruby and Sapphire (Even though they already are, but people don't chastise them for that because it's a new experience and they already bought two remakes so all that's in the past).

    Or they just picked random ones that seemed like they could work...

    They don't actually follow pokemon competitively, so how would they know how many were slam dunk anyway? How would they know that speed boost Blaziken was going to be so powerful?

    They only had so many "slam dunk" abilities because with so many pokemon, that's bound to happen.

    Oh, I agree, much like how a lot of developers don't actually play their games or games in general. I'd just rather think that they think something about their game mechanics rather than think Game Freak is two steps in to essentially breaking their game without their knowing.

    Gamefreak may not follow Smogon move for move but they aren't stupid. They are aware of the competitive scene especially things like the VGCs.

    Well, yeah, they probably do follow VGC, but I don't think they know much else competitively, especially in single battles.

    I mean, why else would pokemon like Kyurem banned and Garchomp not?

    I can almost guarantee you that Game Freak knows what Smogon is, and there's a good chance that they are aware of the general concept of Smogon's ban/tiering system. I can also guarantee you that Game Freak doesn't give a flying monkeyfish about competitive battling when they make their games. They will probably try to balance things out to an extent, though, mainly to make things in Battle Subway and whatnot more even.

    I don't really think the evolutions make a difference. They could maybe make items so u can increase their specific stat by like 5-10 depending on where u find it either earlier or later in the game.

    That's actually what I was trying to say. I guess people took it the wrong way...

    I never said they didn't know about it, I just said they didn't care.

    Evolution can make a huge difference, actually.

    I think it would be great if Game Freak increased to BST of older mons. Like Tauros, for example, was really strong n Gen 1 and then just fell into obscurity after that.

    Pokemon like Seismitoad (A Pokemon who's potential I thought was wasted) could become more usable. Bastiodon could even become more usable, with increased attack stats.
    DW Pokemon I can offer:

    Really, many pokemon deserve better BST or even evolution, but among these I believe is Castform and Bannette

    Agreeing with Castform, if its stats were 100 across the board and Weather Ball had a base power of 75 (and possibly a Sandstorm form), I'm positive it would be OU.

    And make the game incompatible with previous gens? No thanks. If they need better BST, it would be better to have them an evolution. Some Pokemon just don't have the stats to be viable, so you just have to live with it.

    in any weather, Weather Ball's power is doubled. so it's not bad at all.

    There are quite a few 'mon who could use a BST boost. Arbok, Castform, Pidgeot, Noctowl, Quagsire, Tropius, Tauros and Lapras among them :P
