New weather condition: Night
When Night, the power of Dark type attacks increase
New Item: Genie Lamp
Powers up the Kami's (Incarnate) speed.
Useless on Prankster Thundurus, but Landorus and Tornadus would love this. Kinda like Soul Dew.
There should be a new weather, similar to Haze but permanent unless a new weather comes in.
I guess the ablility would be called Fog, and while under fog, no stat changes can be made. Also, all attacks that are not 100% accuracy will have their accuracy lowered by 10-15%
It basically would be good for stall teams.
The check for Fake Out's success or Retaliate's extra power isn't whether or not the move has already been used, but whether or not the user of the move has been out for more than one turn.
The whole idea of reviving a Pokémon is pretty broken unless the cost is the user fainting. A net one-Pokémon advantage in a move is too good, design-wise. 1 PP isn't unheard of, though.
I'm all for the new Necromancy and new Soul Unburden, as well as the clarification of Weather Burst.
As for Jolteon or Lilligant getting a boost in their Special stats and Speed with a Miniature Cloud-like item, it's a bit too good because the boosts allow for one less turn of setup without any sort of relevant drawback. The DeepSeaScale and Tooth for Clamperl or the Light Ball for Pikachu are more acceptable, though, since they have less stats with which they can abuse the item. Competitively speaking, as for the Soul Dew, not much can be said other than it came out in the first generation where they introduced such items, I believe, and didn't realize how powerful Latios and Latias would be with them.
New Move: Slash Cutter
Type: Dragon / Power: 70 / Accuracy: 100 / PP: 20 / Target: Single adjacent Pokémon / Category: Physical / Priority: 0 (Contact: Yes)
"The user rushes at the target and attacks it using its sharp claws. Critical hits land more easily."
- It's a Dragon-type variation of moves like Slash, Psycho Cut, and Shadow Claw.
New Move: Clear Sky
Effect: The pokemon calls upon a mystic power, and banishes any abnormal weather effects from the sky. Rain, Sun, Sandstorms, Hail, and Fogs are all removed for the rest of the battle, unless another pokemon uses a move or ability to summon them again.
Distribution: Altaria, Rayquaza, Dragonair, Dragonite, Castform.
Uh...I didn't think much about targets.But yes, I like this move. I'm assuming it hits any non-user Pokémon?
Let's just say it hits any adjacent target pokemon.
Well... I'm putting this in a Spoiler, but here's my Idea for a New Weather Condition, Night
If you don't consider entry hazards at all as a hindrance to the move, 50% HP is quite significant, especially if you revive a tank or something. They can recover up back to almost full in one turn with their healing move of choice, or use that turn to set up a Reflect or Light Screen or something to benefit the team again, or get out entry hazards of their own, or what have you. That extra turn can serve extremely crucial to the success of the team, and it's not very fair for a team that's worked so hard to KO that Pokémon to go about their day only to have to deal with that exact same threat again.
If you make Revival require the user fainting as a cost, then that pretty much makes Revival only go on Pokémon that eventually outlive their usefulness. That role used to pretty much only belong to suicide leads, but if they're leads, and if they use Revival, they'd have nothing to revive.
I think somebody else suggested a reviving move awhile back, to which I probably also wasn't a fan of, if only for the design issues.
The only real flavor disconnect I have with the night weather itself is the Normal-, Fighting- and Fire-type move power reduction. Since the rest are just counterparts to already-existing abilities and moves, I can't really say much about them.New Weather: Night
-Boosts the Power of Ghost, Dark, and Psychic type moves by 50%
-Decreases the Power of Fire, Normal, and Fighting type moves by 50%
-Boosts the Defense of Ghost types
-Solar Beam’s power is reduced
-Pokemon with the Shadow ability gets an Evasion boost (Akin to Snow Cloak and Sand Veil)
-Pokmeon with the Lunacy ability has their speed doubled
-Can be summoned with the Lunar Call ability
-Pokemon with the Starlight ability will have statuses removed at the each turn
-Synthesis and Morning Sun will have their Healing decreased to 25%, and Moonlight to 66%, and Vise Versa in the Sun
-Castform transforms into a Ghost-type
-Weather Ball/Burst becomes Ghost-type moves.

And no, this wouldn't be encompassed under the evasion clause, because the evasion clause bans things like BrightPowder, Double Team, and Sand Veil, which are evasion-boosting mechanics that your opponent can do nothing about and just has to deal with.

Dynamite - So, 50 base power on turn 1, then 100 base power on turn 2, with the Pokémon with explosives planted on it not being able to switch? Does this prevent Baton Pass, U-Turn, and Volt Switch?

Golden Arc (a relic shaped like Arceus' middle peice)
Boosts STAB moves for the holder by 50% at the cost of 50% power on all non STAB moves.
Dual Types would love this. And if you can learn them, fixed damage moves would help dodge the drop.
