Name: The Assassin
General Description: The Assassin is a Pokémon that can eliminate a few problem Pokémon for certain unconventional teams swiftly, and without possibility of failure. However, it would be incapable of harming anything else.
Justification: The Assassin would have a positive effect on the metagame because it gives certain unconventional teams the boost they need to achieve usability in standard play.
Questions to be Answered:
· How will OU be affected if The Assassin is introduced?
· Will the teams that The Assassin is meant to help see a rise in usage?
· What types of teams would The Assassin see play on?
· Would players stop using the Pokémon that The Assassin is designed to counter?
Explanation: When I came up with this concept, my original thought was to make a Pokémon that could counter certain Pokémon effectively. Then I remembered how Krillowatt turned out, so I decided to put a spin on things. I realized that the Pokémon I wanted to create needed to be an Assassin. Like the assassin, this Pokémon's sole purpose in life is to eliminate problems for others. It would do this in such a way that the target had no chance of survival, and the CAP would come out unscathed. Also like an assassin, this CAP would be incapable of harming anyone other than the target, because that would put it in danger. So much danger in fact, that anything other than the target Pokémon could defeat it just as swiftly as the CAP eliminates its targets. Certain teams, such as Hail, could benefit immensely from a Pokémon that could 'whack' problems into the dust. Hence this concept.
I'm only here for Project Amethyst and the CAP Project.
