This pokemon would be able to counter focused strategies, specifically; teams that are dedicated to one method of winning battles.
Some games you just can't win no matter how much more powerful, faster, bulkier your team is. You may be the most skilled player in the world but you don't have a chance against their strategy, whether they power through your team like they're made of glass with a bulked-up conkeldurr, or they brave your attacks without taking a scratch with a cradily in a sandstorm. There needs to be something to stop the one trick ponies (e.g. weather teams, hyper-offense...etc) from dominating the metagame and turn quick losses into actual battles
where both sides actually stand a chance of winning. This pokemon is intended to stop those "hit-or-miss" teams that will tear you to shreds, and rarely fail.
Questions To Be Answered:
- Will a pokemon designed to stop teams dedicated to a specific win-strategy, promote more real teams in the OU metagame that use synergy, prediction, and downright skill to win games?
- If successful, how will the one-trick-ponies be afftected? Will they simply become more approachable, or will they be rendered completely unviable?
- In dealing with this new threat to their gameplan, will this pokemon have a signifigant effect on their stability, and thereby: their consistency in achieveing victory?
It is very easy to fall victim to those over-abused strategies that you just cant deal with. This pokemon is intended to make those "metagame monsters" less threatening and easier to deal with. I hope that this pokemon will promote variation, player 'skill', and lots more "rogue" teams in the the OU metagame, instead of playing those same games over and over again. This pokemon will punish the opponent for being overly predictable.
If selected, I am very excited to see what players can come up with to achieve such a feat, in dealing with the few strongers strategies out there.
P.S.(this isn't quite finished yet, i have alot more to say about what i hope this pokemon will achieve)
