      @Draco456 But Imposter would just make Mew into another pokemon altogether and not Mew itself. What's the use of Mew's other move pool moves if it's just going to get replaced by imposter moves?
      Instead, I would give Mew it's own unique ability to put priority on Transform, and make it revert back if it takes enough damage.
      Or another thing I would do is make Mew's psychic bubble it bounces around on into an actual ability and make it function as a built in substitute that only activates if Mew is at full health. The barrier would protect it from all other moves except damaging ones. And the damage is negated on hitting the barrier, and instead.... It just breaks it like Mimikyu's disguise ability.

      I think Mew is HEAVILY underpowered in the games! I mean, COME ON, it's the ancestor of all Pokémon and can learn EVERY SINGLE MOVE, including Transform (but without Ditto's limitations)! Synchronize just does not work for Mew! A much better ability would be Imposter.

      Deoxys should be changed to a new ability. I would call it infection since deoxys is a virus that fell from space and got mutated. Basically it deals residual damage in proportion to the target's max HP (Probably like 10%) every turn after making contact so long as deoxys is on the field (contact can be made by either the opponent or deoxys) (Also, switching out doesn't reset the contact requirement being filled). Additionally, make it a nerfed effect spore too... So a 20% chance to either para, poison or sleep opponent when they make contact with you. But also when you make contact with them cuz I'm evil and want it to be that way😊

      @J B. I think the main issue with having Giratina set up an Inverse Battle is you make some of the most common attack types-water, fire, grass, and electric-do super effective damage to it.
      I suppose the trade-off of having super effective options against Normal, Dark, Steel and Fairy might be worth it, but three of those types share a weakness to Fighting anyways.
      I'd personally argue Giratina should have two abilities depending on which form it is. Something similar to Shadow Shield works for its Altered Form, since that IS its defensive form, but maybe make it where any first hit it takes in a battle is always Not Very Effective, regardless of if it got chipped by weather effects.
      For its Origin Forme, maybe it gets an ability that allows its Ghost moves to be super effective against Normal types? This plays on the idea that Giratina doesn't quite belong in our reality in this form and is defying the laws of reality by doing so.

    Hilariously enough, at this point Mewtwo needs a bit of help (relative to the other big legends of course). It’s pretty mid in ubers and MASSIVELY outclassed in VGC. Sheer Force would work with the whole ruthless mentality thing, not even bothering with secondary effects, just big damage.

      @Roadrunner basically, if it's a chance, then it's a secondary effect. If it's a lingering effect, like it's always active, then it's considered part of the move regardless. Anything guaranteed does not get boosted

    • AznYunHou
      AznYunHou Ай бұрын

      @Roadrunner extra effect is something that is added on, like if it can be removed or increased in odds, that is considered an added effect. As it doesn't change how the move works. If it simply describes how the move is calculated, it's not an added effect. Freeze dry can do super effective against water, but it's not an added effect, it's how the move calculates it's damage. Seismic toss does damage based on level, it's not something that can turn off. Moves that have high critical hit ratio do not count as added effects as it's part of the calculation as well, so slash does not get sheer force boost.

      @lycanwarrior622 I had a similar idea but I think if they ever make a debut for a ghost terrain field, Giratina should get an ability that summons ghost terrain everytime he swaps into battle.

    I could definitely see the Creation Trio having some busted abilities if their Origin Forms or even another set of forms that are on the same level of Arceus.
    Dialga could have an ability similar to your idea but after every turn, a second turn passes that affects everyone on the field that includes weather and terrain effects, damage over time and of course making recharge moves make it seem like they don’t recharge.
    Palkia could have an ability where it could make all moves accurate/hit both opponents but it could also make all moves used in succession give an increase crit chance making Spacial Rend more deadlier.
    And Giratina could have an ability to give all moves the Contrary effect to reference the Distortion World reversing everything.

    Similar to how Rayquaza and Zygarde have abilities which let them basically cancel out the other two Legendaries in their respective trios, I think Giratina could have an ability called something like "Ghostly Distortion" which activates when it uses its signature move Shadow Force. Doing so would activate a "Distorted Terrain" on the field, which nullifies the effects of Palkia and Dialga's own abilities.
    Giratina's Pokedex entries all pretty much say the same thing about it being banished for its violence, and the Distortion World being a place where common knowledge is distorted, so if you wanted to lean more into a lore-accurate ability, you could have the Distorted Terrain apply some other kind of effect, like changing the effects of status moves or something. Someone else in the comments mentioned Giratina changing the battle to an inverse battle, which would also be pretty cool, but I'm not an expert on competitive and feel like having one Pokemon that can completely change the format of a battle would be too broken and make competitive battling a complete nightmare.
    On the violence side of things, another possible ability for Giratina would be an ability called "Ruthless Spirit" or something along those lines, which would allow Giratina's ghost type attacks to always hit an opponent regardless of any typing, ability, evasion/accuracy or protection. You could probably take it a step further by making ghost type moves ignore resistances as well, or have them get a buff when the ability activates, but that would really be up to how overpowered you want to make it. Shadow Force could probably be slightly adjusted to account for this ability as well.

    Essentially my idea is that when it enters battle a mist surrounds the battlefield that causes stat related moves to distort and become the opposite of what would burn all happen as if everyone had contrary
    Essentially moves like dragon dance would lower stats and super power would raise them and you would need to balance your team to ensure you don’t either debuff yourself or buff your enemies
    Could really help with kind games as the opponent can’t just set up a dragon dance or swords dance when they read a switch

    I love the concept of new lore-themed abilities for Legendary Pokémon!
    I had a similar idea for Dialga and Palkia where they each control time and space. Each would be accompanied with a new signature move (for their secondary types) that would take advantage of the ability.
    For Dialga, this would be "Temporal Aberration" which is pretty much a Power Herb for everyone on the field and skips recharge.
    Likewise, Palkia would have "Interstellar Abeyance" which makes the effects of Gravity permanent.
    With Giratina, I had a hard time creating an ability that made sense for it. Shadow Shield would make its Altered Form truly unkillable and I would love to see it.
    After doing some research on antimatter, I came up with the aptly named "Antimatter" which is Contrary for everyone. This would be a double-edged sword but it goes along with everything being inverted.
    I want Regigigas to finally escape from the depths and receive a new ability titled "Regis Mode." This would give it both an offensive and defensive boost.
    This would slightly boost the power of its Rock, Ice, Steel, Electric, and Dragon moves while also reducing damage received by said types.
    For Zekrom and Reshiram I went a bit overboard and borrowed from Miraidon and Koraidon by buffing their abilities to mimic the effects of Hadron Engine and Orichalcum Pulse but increasing Attack and Special Attack respectively. Yeah...these two would be a problem.

    I'd give Giratina the ability Wonder Guard, or a variation called "Annihilate". Based on the concept of annihilation in physics, in which antimatter and matter cancel each other out.
    In this case, since supereffective types are sometimes based on opposites (like Water > Fire > Ice), Giratina's antimatter properties make it so that it can only be "destroyed" by the opposite properties.
    Alternatively (to make it less broken), the ability could instead be something like "Antimatter Armor", which makes it only immune to supereffective hits (the ability works like a protective shield surrounding Giratina)

    "distortion field" where it creates a space around the battle similar to the distortion world that boosts all of its ghost type moves .
    It's based on anti matter so this way it can use its full power without damaging the world around it .

    Shadow Aura: The Pokemon summons a veil of shadows that protect it of any form of indirect damage (wheather, field traps, status problems). Also, gives it ground immunity.
    The ability is a reference to their battle in Legends Arceus (in which Giratina is surounded in a dark aura, that has a similar effect) and their first aparence back in pokemon platinum (in which it's all covered in darkness). The ground inmunity part it's because Giratina can fly in their both forms.

    [Psychic | Special | PWR: 100 | ACC: 100 | PP: 10]
    - Deals damage as well as prevents target from escaping.
    *The Creation Trio*
    *Ability: Primordial Chaos* - Change into their Origin Formes upon fainting once in battle when holding their respective orbs. They now take neutral damage from their type weaknesses.
    *(Fun Fact:* Primordial Chaos is the in-universe name of the Creation Trio, as said by Arceus itself)
    *Ability: Azathoth* - Gains a secondary typing that changes based on the opponent's incoming attack. The default type is Ghost.
    *New Attack: Voice of Sinnoh*
    [Normal | Special | PWR: -- | ACC: -- | PP: 1]
    - It's a guaranteed OHKO, breaching through immunities and protection.
    *Ability: Absolute Zero* - Gains a STAB boost from Fire and Electric attacks. Changes its signature move Glaciate into World Destroyer.
    *New Attack: World Destroyer*
    [Dragon | Special | PWR: 120 | ACC: 100 | PP: 5]
    - Deals damage and has a 25% chance to either Burn, Freeze, Paralyze.
    *Ability: Darkest Day* - Allows it to transform once into its Eternamax Form for 3 turns as long as Dynamax Cannon is above 0 PP.

    I think Giratina could have an ability that’s similar to Unaware where it’s attacks go through stat boosts but also reduce their stat boosts by one stage upon hitting them if they have any.
    I think Regirock should have Solid Rock as it’s ability or Regenerator like Garganacl since in it’s pokedex entries, it is described to use surrounding rocks to repair itself.
    Here’s a weird one though. I think Solgoleo should come with Heatproof.
    Zekrom’s Teravolt should also act similar to Belibolt, but whenever it uses an electric type move, it’s next move will be charged. Reshiram will have the same but get a flash fire boost instead.
    Also, the sword’s of Justice should have f***ing Sharpness ability god dang it.

    My idea to make the Sinnoh gods broken was giving Palkia a new ability called Spacial Control where it's attacks never miss, go through any protect style defenses, and I honestly like the idea for making all of it's moves hit all opponents. For Dialga it would Temporal Mastery where it can manipulate time to give itself a free turn 50% of the time, reducing the chances of another free turn down to 1% after the free first turn, then 0% after the second free turn, and I do like the idea of reducing the number of turns for multi-turn moves like Solar Beam, so I'll give it that as well. For Giratina it would be Distortion World (name is WIP) where it dodges by going into the distortion world, completely invulnerable to all moves and this ability has a 50% activation every turn and I like the video's idea of having the ability to reduce super effective damage so it gets that as well. For Arceus its new ability would be Originator and its basically multi-type with a random chance to nullify any of the Creation Trios abilities and also has a random chance of using any of the Creation Trios abilities. So if Dialga were to have another turn, Arceus says no, if Palkia were to hit it, Arceus says no, and if Giratina were to dodge any moves, Arceus again says no. Basically, it's near movie accurate Arceus. Also all of the Sinnoh gods signature moves are typeless and always hit super effective damage, I don't think being fairy type gives you the right to be immune to a space rending move or a time distorting attack or having the god pokemon judge you.
    In line with this video, this was never about fairness, these abilities would be a goddamn nightmare to play against and I think it would be funny if the Sinnoh gods did have perfect or near perfect lore accurate abilities.

    For Giratina you could also do the Latios/Latias' Light Refraction, Mimikyu's Disguise or Eiscue's Ice Body idk maybe call it Shadow Veil making it invulnerable to physical, special or status moves for the 1st turn, could be also if switched out upon switching back in within the same battle the ability resets. Basically every first turn that Giratina is on the field it's invulnerable like an Auto-Protect.
    For Kyurem, for the 1st turn once in a battle upon switching in or as a first appearance automatically have every pokemon besides Kyurem have a Frozen status even your ally in double battles. It just fits the Absolute Zero name as an ability.
    Im not well versed on the competitive scene, it'll obviously be too OP for the both of them. Thematically it looks sound to me.
