Can i make a suggestion? Since GF made the NFE's stats on a very very different scale to that of the pokemon we see in OU (like for instance having larger differences between base stats for each stat like HP and Atk), could this be applied to Basic/Baby pokemon and then separately for Stage 1 pokemon?
By that i mean, it would seem a lot more reasonable to have Bulbasaur fight it out with Solosis, and Duosion battle it out with Chansey.
If you look at my previous post, you'll see that the prevos are generally better than their evos in their best stats, and this hold true even in three stage evolution lines like Reuniclus' or Blissey's. In both cases, the babies/basics are the best, followed by the Stage 1 pokemon, and then finally the Stage 2 pokemon. So, by splitting these up, you'd get a metagame where pokemon would see more balanced usage, as right now there is little reason to use an evolved pokemon over its prevo if one exists. Why attack with Reuniclus when Solosis actually hits harder? You could say that the HP stat balances out the difference, but pokemon has always been a game where (short of VGC's goodstuffs) a certain pokemon on a team can fill a role and that role only. Since when have we ever had a pokemon who was a jack of all trades (in one set)? That's what i foresee Reuniclus ending up as: a jack of all trades compared to Solosis's Scarfed/Specs'd Special Sweeper. Reuniclus can't pull off an offensive set nearly as well as Solosis due to the changed base stats, and the only advantage left is a larger movepool, which lets Reuniclus again act as a jack of all trades, but a master of none. And when you look at the current metagame and it's teams, you'll see many choiced special sweepers, but very few if any pokemon who can pull off a jack of all trades role.
Just A1 for short. Apparenlty people can't spell Treadshot.
