In this thread we will discuss viable abilities for Embirch and Flarelm. I would like ideas put forward for both Primary and Secondary abilities for each of the prevolutions
. I want some really good suggestions here; I’ve had a think of some I like the idea of too. I’ll let you know if you put forward those ones. The polls will be fairly challenging for this one and I will have a talk with Birkal the next time I see him. I will post in this thread and explain what will happen.
At this moment in time I will likely put the two abilities against each other and make one of them “guaranteed” to be on both of the prevos. Then decide from that which abilities we can change over. Remember to look for examples from other Pokémon. For example: The Horsea line shares Sniper as a Secondary Ability, but the primary ability changes from Swift Swim to Poison Point and back to Swift Swim. As far as I am aware, no 3 stage Pokémon changes an ability twice (As in, all 3 abilities are different). If you find an example of this (That isn't from a "Cacoon" style Pokémon) please let us all know!
EDIT: The only other example I can think of is the Slakoth line changing from Truant to Vital Spirit and then going back to Truant.
has the abilities Rock Head and Battle Armor
(Armour). Both of these abilities are fairly flavourful in themselves but also work towards Pyroak’s defensive nature. Try to keep that in mind when coming up with ideas for Embirch and Flarelm.
This discussion will be open for 48 hours
