This format is based on a competitive, lore friendly re-imagining on Pokemons abilities and typing. There are so many Pokemon with the potential for greatness yet their typing or abilities hold them back.
Competitive wise, I want this format to change that and allow the Pokemons stats and movepool really shine. There are so many Pokemon that have either useless abilities or abilities that don’t synergies with their typing or stats. With the help of the Smogon community, I am sure we can make just about every Pokemon feel competitive even with the restriction keeping at least 1 original typing and using lore friendly abilities
Lore wise, Isn’t it annoying to see a Pokemon’s typing and it not quite make the Pokemon itself. This is something I would love to fix in these re-typings. The restrictions I feel are important to place are: 1. Maintain one original typing, 2. The typing must fit with the Pokedex entries, 3. The typing changes must corroborate with the Pokemon’s movepool. In reference to abilities, they just need to be lore friendly.
This format is to increase the competitiveness of the Pokemon we have and flesh them out more. This is not to absolutely break Pokemon. Competitive is different from broken
I would love to get this format going, but I don’t know the steps to getting a new format in PokemonShowdown. If anyone knowledgeable about such things or would like to participate, I would love a PM.
