  1. Well unless pokemon can maintain their mega evos after switching out, it will still suffer from 4x SR weakness, and that's assuming it has already mega evolved once before SR was even put up. And there might be fairy/type which resists fire type of pokemon so Heatran probably wouldn't be the only one.

    <p><p><p><p><p><p>More upset about their blatant favouritism for certain Pokemon: it seems they're REALLY intent on giving specific Pokemon specific toys. Mega Venusaur's stone, Venusaurite, isn't Venusaurite X or Venusaurite Y, meaning Charizard MAY as well be the only Kanto starter (I doubt Blastoise will have a separate one) to have two. And it's becoming more likely Mega Blaziken may be the only Mega of the Hoenn starters... you know how much they like it. I hope I'm proven wrong there, but that is ridonkuclous <img src="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/unsure.png" alt=":/" srcset="<fileStore.core_Emoticons>/emoticons/unsure@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /></p></p></p></p></p></p>

  6. At first sight I thought M Charizard X looked way better than Y, but then if you watch the , its wings are too small !!!! I hope this is just a distortion in the game sprite and not the actual design. Small wings and a large body work for I guess stuff which are intended to be cute, but not that supposedly "badass" design of the rest of its body T_TI'm not so keen on the three different versions of a pokemon yet, sometimes less is more. It seems a bit messy but maybe it won't turn out that way. Though M Charizard Y's ability seems more attractive, i'm a lot more interested in X. Regular Ch
  7. There's really too much to consider that my head is blowing just thinking about this. On one hand you have all the advantages one type gets due to changes, then you have to consider the changes of every other single type and how abundance of use would be affected, and then whether the change in abundance would itself become an advantage, and then how this advantage would affect use, and then use back to advantage, it's like a cyclic system with random branches going out at random intervals that it's completely messing with me. There's a point I made before about the random nature of competiti
  8. There's never going to be an absolute measure to a pokemon's strength. The whole concept of "absolute" is a mathematical one. When we're looking at a qualitative measure such as strength/usefulness/whatever you call it, there's always going to be an uncertainty, which in this case is rather large considering the details we are missing and the fact that there are varying factors. So the most appropriate idea would be to opt for the best available solution, which atm is tier classifications. Maybe it's just a matter of conflicting perspectives, you have your point and I have mine. I can tell you
  9. I thought you might have something to say about that, I know you don't like the idea but tiers are possibly the best way to tell how useful a pokemon is. Useful ones get used more, tiers might be a bit of an arbitrary thing (well aren't all classifications?) but the fact that people would use certain pokemon is a clear indication of their strength. There's probably no better way to assess the usefulness of a type than looking at the abundance of its use. Rather than looking at usefulness through potential, using distribution statistics provide far better supporting evidence. I know very well s
  10. Ice isn't even that bad, normal is the worst type. Number of ice pokemon in OU: 3 Normal in OU: 1 Ice in Ubers: 2 Normal in Ubers: 1 And ice is even super effective against 4 of the most commonly used types out there. Also, if watching dramas taught me anything, it's that 妖精 are just a bunch of human-animal hybrids who have not trained their abilities and morality enough to become a god...

  12. No don't stop T_T. Yes, that's exactly what I was saying: it's their generally better stat distribution and movepools, and that has nothing to do with the type itself, it's the pokemon. You have a point in that fairies can also counter attack with a super effective hit, but yes we'll have to see how it plays out. Perhaps this calls for an increased impact in being able to predict your opponent, like how you go for a Hydro Pump on Choiced Rotom-W because you predict a ground type to come in and take the volt switch (and then you fail miserably as they send in Jellicent).

  14. Lol, the melodrama wraith! There's really no way for us to know the potential of a type based on type effectiveness. For example, let's talk about the offensive aspect of dragons and normals prior to Gen VI. Dragon is resisted only by steel, and Normal is resisted only by rock and steel. Based on these facts alone, you would expect dragon to only be slightly superior to normal (remember we're talking about offensive only atm). Yet, Dragon dominates Normal in sweepers and wallbreakers. It is not the type effectiveness which determines how useful a type is, it is the pokemon found within the cla
