-inactive in BH due corrupt leader-
thanks E4 Flint for the bannerWhat is Balanced Hackmons?
From a technical standpoint, Balanced Hackmons (BH) is an Other Meta that allows you to use nearly anything possible that you can battle with in a local battle between players, in the most current cartridge.
Conceptually, BH is defined as a sandbox tier where one can use Pokemon to their fullest potential with normal restrictions being removed.
To jump to playing Pokemon with no restrictions but what is limited to the mechanics of the game, visit the ANYTHING GOES thread
What makes it Balanced?
The removal of abilities, moves or Pokemon that focus the meta only around their use.
Highlights of BH Mechanics:
Here is but a sample of the cool things you can do in BH and nowhere else!
Note: The following is subject to the current banlist
- Start in Mega, Primal, Alternate, Origin, Heat, Zen, or any other form you choose! No manual evolution, item, ability requirement necessary! Have as many of them as you like on your team!
- Make use of as many of the same mon on your team! Free yourself from the species clause
- Add (nearly) any moves of your choice into your moveset! Fulfill your dreams of Hydro Cannon Magikarp at last!
- Augment your Mons with your favorite abilities! Magic Bounce, Prankster, Illuminate and everything in between!
- NEW: Add Z-Moves into your moveslot which can be used without their item! This includes the exclusive Z-moves!
- NEW: Returning now, make use of maxed EV'd Pokemon after the removal of the EV Limit
Sadly, to get the "Balanced" in Balanced Hackmons, some things have to be removed. The following is the current banlist:
