    It's impossible to know without knowing the base stats, or ability. Say it had really low speed and defense, then any strong physical attack would take it out. Or if it was a big wall, then things like toxic-stall Gliscor would work best. It's impossible to really tell just from a typing. Kinda like comparing Forretress and Scizor

    @ Ghost/Normal Discussion

    Well, base stats and ability aside, you'd probably want something with a strong Dark type attack to help bring it down. One thing that comes to mind is Hydreigon, but, of course, that wouldn't work well if it were specially defensive. However, that aside, I'd imagine that most already prevalent attackers would be able to combat it like normal. There are a lot of fighting types that rely on moves other than just fighting. I'm sure a nice Stone Edge would leave a dent, or something like that.

    This Ghost/Normal would be banned to ubers because people wouldn't want their precious gengars hurt. And then, once the "new games" come out with new tutors/forms, a few pokemon will be able to counter it easy, and it'll be brought back to OU. Just saying.

    And on the non-competitive side, what would this pokemon be based on? Something that is "half-dead" that didn't pass on? Or maybe something more evil, like something who CAUSES that... so many evil ideas.

    It would be the evolution of snorlax that died from diabetes or something.

    This is quite possibly the funniest thing you've ever said. 10/10 would read again.

    It could be like a dead animal that has a talisman on its face that makes it come back to life.

    Gah, I forgot how much you guys post. I only left for one day...

    I don't feel like fighting today...I guess I'll get back to learning how to RNG. But as for the Gengar discussion....why not make some sort of pokemon to work with?

    Hm...you know, discussing how made up pokemon would effect the metagame would be a pretty interesting topic. Like Smogon's create a pokemon.

    Eh, I don't really think so. If it worked like that, the ban list would be much larger.

    I mean, we've got the all famous Terrakion. Why hasn't Gliscor ever been banned?

    Actually bishop would see a lot more usage as subsd would set up all over it swarm would rise to counter it's dual stab honchkrow would rise and I resent that Wilkie will not die of diabetes maybe gallade but not wookie

    I don't mean to offend you in any way, but this really isn't a very intelligent statement (especially coming from you, who generally says intelligent, or at least interesting things). OUR clan would want it banned because of the popularity of Gengar, but I don't think others would care as much.

    Gallade would never get diabetes. It's too physically fit.
    Bisharp I understand, but where did dual STAB Honchkrow come from? I don't see how he acts as a counter at all, especially with Bisharp.

    So, busy weekend. I got a German Shepherd puppy and shes a bit of a handful, this is my reason for absence the last several days.

    @normal/ghost I think everyone would freak out, and expect it to go instant-uber before everyone realizes, "oh yeah, dark moves/tricking a ring target onto the pokemon(meh, doable)/scrappy ability(lawl)/odor sleuth(rofl)/ soak and HP electric or grass(doable) and many other possible solutions" It would be kinda like Imposter Ditto. Most people thought it would wreck the metagame, now when i see one i just laugh and send in Volc(it works much better than you would think)

    @diabetes killing snorlax, lawl.

    So yeah, new puppy + school + learning to drive +attempting to have a social life = no time in my day, so expect my PO time to be mostly at night and weekends.

    Night ya'll

    Decided to greatly simplify my format. And I haven't done a BW Egg RNG since I RNGed my Gligar for my W2 team. This took 2 eggs.

    And yeah, expect activity to slightly drop from me, I have school.

    Sadly, I'll be on much less for the next couple of weeks because I have school, and life, and things... Also, if anyone has ever used Random Pokemon Generator for battles, I created a version for a project that exports in PO readable teams from selectable smogon sets here. http://www.youthscrabble.org/cgi-bin/sanka.py
    See you all later

    regarding the ghost normal pokemon the easy counter is ttar. it resists both its stabs and the pokemons stats could be good ... just because scizor and swampert have one weakness doesn't mean its stats are bad ... as for design .. possessed teddy bear (spinda evo) and a++++ to aeon for the snorlax comment

    Ah, but even if it was Specially Defensive, Hydreigon can run Physical. Therefore, a Physical Hydreigon may be used to get a surprise kill on said Pokemon, because it thinks it can tank its attacks.
