    The name doesn't really tell the player whether it's a noun or a verb.

    But yeah, what do you think of the move?

    I like it but to be honest I think if you're gonna sacrifice a Pokemon it should be a at least +3 boost in the respective stats. At least this move has a viable reason to faint unlike memento, I mean really how useful would memento really be, the opponent can just switch >_>

    I initially made it so that it would make the recipient got +2 in each of the main five stats, but +3 in Attack, Sp. Atk, and Speed works too, I guess.

    It's rare that people remember what other people making in. This thread xD. I still remembered the huge rage @ eclipse xD

    Forewarn/Anticipation: Detects the foe's strongest move/super effective move and disable it for the first three turns.

    And I think Light Bolt has higher B.P than Discharge so yeah, it's not that good though, since TBolt > Light Bolt.

    And since more creativity, gonna do a massive buff up to the weakest FE dragon in the entire Pokemon world...

    Guess

    Black 2, so many parasol ladies, so many Castform...

    ...an evolution with 100 across the board, access to recovery and stat boosting moves, and an added sandstorm form would be nice...

    - It's basically a Healing Wish but for stats. Instead of the recipient having its HP restored to full, the recipient's Attack, Sp. Atk, and Speed are all increased by two stages.
    So it's basically Shell Smash + Baton Pass in one move. Losing the Pokemon is meaningless when you can give anything +2 offenses in one turn. That's incredibly broken.

    New Ability: Flash

    Effect: All direct damaging moves gain +1 in priority but lose 20% base power

    Who gets it: Slower Pokemon like Emboar, Conk, etc

    sounds a little bit broken.

    priority on all attacks is game breaking.

    emboar's flare blitz still has 126 power after stab, leaving it the most powerful priority move in the game. same goes for his superpower, with head smash having 120 power.

    now, if we added life orb, emboar would become almost unstoppable.

    i'll add some cb calcs later.

    I actually posted because I wasn't sure how much the damage would need to e brought down, so would something like 30% be better?

    ALTARIA! Its in NU, which other Middle stage dragons are found so... :/

    Anyways:
    2nd DW Ability
    Purify Song: Boosts sound-based move by 33% in damage.

    New Attacks/Buffs:
    Dragon Call (Dragon) JP: Dragon Voice ドラゴンボイス
    PP: 15/Power: 80/Accuracy: 100/Category: Special/Priority: 0
    The user lets out a beautiful call of the dragons, and has a 30% chance to confuse.
    - Distribution: Dragonite, Altaria, Lati@s, Zekrom, Reshiram, Kyuerum

    Cotton Spin (Normal) JP: Cotton Spin コットンスピン
    PP: 15/Power: --/Accuracy: 100/Category: Status/Priority: 0
    The user spins around its cotton that smashes into the foe, drastically lowering attack by three stages.
    - Distribution: Mareep, Flaffy, Swablu, Altaria
    - Cotton Guard + Cotton Spin = Cotton Family = Ultimate Tank against Scizor
    Purify Song - Seems alright. It doesn't affect sound-based moves that don't deal damage, like Supersonic. If a Pokémon with Bug Buzz gets Purify Song, it'd be pretty powerful.
    Dragon Call - A Dragon-type, confusing Scald. Solid move.
    Cotton Spin - Given that Cotton Spin has the same distribution as Cotton Guard, I'd say that the magnitude of the Attack drop is fine.

    Two Attack, Sp. Atk, and Speed boosts + Baton Pass in one move, without making the user faint, would be broken. A net +6 stat increase without a switch to a Pokémon that could abuse those stat boosts is already extremely broken. Being able to switch would make that even more broken.

    The reason why Memento doesn't see much play at all is because the affected foe can just switch. I get that a Dark Linked Pokémon is much harder to get rid of, since they can't just be eliminated by the opponent switching out or anything; the foe would have to use Roar (but survive the Dark Linked Pokémon's attack, first). If Speed weren't increased, then at least the foe would still be able to faint the Dark Linked Pokémon before it goes on its tirade.

    Saying that increasing offensive stats by two stages each being broken is totally fine, but to say that losing the user is meaningless isn't quite accurate. If it were meaningless, then having the user faint for some effect wouldn't be a penalty for moves like Healing Wish or Memento in the first place.

    Memento is a great move, if your opponent switches, you get a free turn to set up Dragon Dance on your Haxorus and such!

    priority moves were meant to be weak, so unless its like a minus 70 percent, i don't think it could ever be balenced.

    Yeah, but it sadly still doesn't see that much play. ):

    Actually, I would agree that losing the user for a benefit as huge as a +2 boost to offenses and speed would be meaningless. After all, people used to run suicide leads in 4th Gen (and occasionally now) simply to get Stealth Rock on the field. Suicide leads often just get up their hazards and then die, so their death is essentially meaningless as long as they get the job done. That would effectively be the case here, only there's no telling what else you could do with whatever Pokemon that gets that move. You might kill something, status something, do whatever damage to the opponent's team before possibly using that move late game and opening up for an easy sweep. Not to mention you aren't forced to run White Herb to prevent defense drops from being passed like with SmashPass, and you also only use up one turn instead of two.

    In terms of competitive battling and competitive battling only, yeah, a Dark Link user could be a suicide lead that lets a mixed sweeper switch in and wipe the floor with the foe's team (or do something similar with its stat boosts).

    Pokémon whose primary purpose is to use Healing Wish typically don't care what the foe does to them, similar to suicide leads that use entry hazard moves, and with the penalty that Dark Link has now, there's nothing that can be done to prevent people from taking advantage of the penalty.

    On another note, dropping the +2 Speed boost entirely would make using Dark Link seem less one-sided than it would otherwise be. With +2 Attack, Sp. Atk, and Speed, the recipient of Dark Link would pretty much be able to outspeed everything the opponent has and sweep them, yeah. But if the Speed boost were gotten rid of, even though the recipient does get a net +4 stat boost, the foe still at least has a chance to answer to what the Dark Link user's trainer switches out to, making the move function much more fairly.

    However, dropping the +2 Speed boost makes the move strictly worse than Shell Smash, in terms of stat increases.
    Dark Link: +4 net stat boost, one turn to transfer stat boosts, user faints, requires only one move
    Shell Smash: +6 net stat boost, two turns to transfer stat boosts (with Baton Pass), user doesn't faint, requires two moves (Shell Smash + Baton Pass)
    Competitive battling exploits notwithstanding, the user fainting is much more of a penalty than -1 Defense and -1 Sp. Def. Requiring only one move and one turn to transfer the stat boosts, though, arguably balances out that penalty. I typically don't use Shell Smash as a move to compare other moves with, because Shell Smash is an exception to the usual +1 and +2 net stat boost moves. When creating Dark Link, though, I felt that the user fainting could warrant such a drastic increase in stats.

    Regardless, my first priorities (no pun intended) with creating moves for this thread are the flavor and in-game balance. But I always try to make the moves I create as balanced for competitive battling as possible.

    Memento has nothing to do with this. Memento is a child's toy compared to Dark Link.

    First off you get your stat boosts but with none of the -1 defenses that Shell Smash has.

    Second of all you can pass those boosts in ONE turn. Shell Smash passing requires the passer to survive two turns which is very difficult when something like Choice Scarf Rotom switches in. Shell Smash is possible to handle because it gives you a turn to switch and counter it.


    Ok so say Dark Link wielding Pokemon switches in.

    Now the opponent switches to a counter (or just attacks, who cares really).
    Your Pokemon explodes and uses Dark Link.

    You get a free switch to anything on your team to get to +2/+2/+2.

    Now you are able to completely **** up your opponent. Who cares if they have Roar on their team, your +2 Pokemon will eradicate it in one hit.


    Seriously just slap a Focus Sash on a Pokemon with Dark Link and lead with it. You really can't go wrong with what is effectively an instant Shell Smash + White Herb + Baton Pass with one move. I don't care if the user faints, I guarantee after a Gorebyss successfully Baton passes a Shell Smash its survival is no longer important.

    Memento is one of the three other moves that has a penalty of making the user faint that don't deal damage to the foe. Since Dark Link is also a move that makes the user faint and doesn't deal damage to the foe either, it makes sense to compare it to Memento.

    Fair enough. I'm open to removing the Speed boost from Dark Link so that the recipient won't pretty much always outspeed the foe. Most of what's making Dark Link broken is because of the Speed making the recipient able to outspeed the foe and preventing them from pretty much doing anything.

    Dark Link is a self-induced faint, meaning it won't work with Focus Sash.

    It's similar because they both have the user faint but they have completely different effects. That's like comparing Ice Beam and Solarbeam because they both do damage and have beam in the name.

    Removing the speed boost might help, but it's still stupidly dangerous. Pass to an Extremespeed Dragonite or something and the speed won't even matter.

    I know. The point is that Focus Sash would guarantee you live long enough to Dark Link.

    Since both Memento and Dark Link have the same penalty, I figured that the benefit of Memento and the benefit of Dark Link would have to be the same. +6 net stat boost clearly doesn't equal -4 net stat boost in terms of the benefit of the move.

    Removing the speed boost might help, but it's still stupidly dangerous. Pass to an Extremespeed Dragonite or something and the speed won't even matter.
    I'm curious. What would you change about the move to make it more balanced yet retain some sort of competitive viability? It has to make the Pokémon faint as well as increase offensive stats, but not be strictly outclassed by another move due to the self-induced faint penalty.

    No posts for a while. It's time for a creation!

    Explosion Claw (JP Explosion Claw ばくはつとぎ) FIRE
    PP: 15/Power: 90/Accuracy: 95/Category: Special/Priority: 0/Target: Every pokemon on the field
    The user launches a ball of fire and scratches it at the same time, causing it to explode. It may flinch the opponent (20%)

    Fury Scratch (JP Rampage Scratch だいあばれスクラッチ) NORMAL
    PP: 10/Power: 120/Accuracy: 100/Category: Physical/Priority: 0/Target: Normal
    The user charges for one turn, then launches a wild stampede of scratches at the foe. If Hone Claws was used in the battle, this attack's set up turn will be neglected.

    Spirit Split (JP Split スプリット) PSYCHIC
    PP: 10/Power: --/Accuracy: 100/Category: Status/Priority: 0/Target: Self
    The user makes a copy of itself that will cause attacks to hit twice, but halved in damage for five turns.

    Here's a plausible Explanation
    Turn One Emboar uses Flamethrower, Espeon uses Spirit Split Turn ends
    Turn Two Emboar uses Subsitute, Espeon uses Psychic. Emboar's Subsitute was broken! Espeon's copy used Psychic. It's super effective!

    The split's copy of the attack is affected by STAB and type bonus :3

    Item
    Magic Doll (JP Magic Toy まほおもちゃ
    Increases Spirit's Split Duration by 2 turns.

    Synchronoise:
    Current: Using an odd shock wave, the user inflicts damage on any Pokémon of the same type in the area around it.
    New: Using an odd shock wave, the user inflicts damage on Pokemon in the area around it. Deals double damage if the foe(s) are the same type as the user.

    I want this move to be useful (somewhat).

    Yeah, the drives were a waste when 3 out of the four drives were outclassed by its stronger counterparts ( Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt), I like these upgrades! I forgot which was stronger Douse Techno Blast or HP Water?

    Thanks. Techno Blast has 15 more base power than Hidden Power and in the end, that at the cost of your item slot isn't worth it.
