Now that we have decided which attacking moves will be allowed into movepool submissions, it is time to turn our attention to non-attacking moves, using the same process. This step will be used to decide what attacking moves will be allowed onto this Pokemon. Non-attacking moves are defined by this article: http://www.smogon.com/cap/process/events/move_discussion . Moves such as Knock Off and Rapid Spin are considered non-attacking moves because they're weak and used for their secondary effects. I will include in this post a full list of non-attacking moves that are considered competitive for Tomohawk. If a non-attacking move is not included on this list, it is considered non-competitive on Tomohawk, and thus allowed by default. The list of moves will be separated into three sections indicating the "status" of the move in the current discussion -- Allowed, Disallowed, Controversial, or Pending. Allowed - Moves that have been agreed through general community consensus to be allowed in the Pokemon's final movepool Disallowed - Moves that have been agreed through general community consensus to not be allowed in the Pokemon's final movepool Controversial - Moves that did not reach general community consensus, and will require a specific vote. Pending - Moves that have not received enough support or opposition to determine whether they are Allowed, Disallowed, or Controversial Moves that are considered Required are mandatory for all movepools. I put some moves into categories already. They aren't necessarily there permanently, but they won't change unless you post in an attempt to sway me. I believe that this will be one of the most important steps that will really make or break whether Tomohawk fulfills its concept, so let's be careful here! Here is the list of non-attacking moves we're looking at here: Required Toxic Protect Rest Attract Substitute Bulk Up Work Up Fling Pending Allowed Aromatherapy/Heal Bell Baton Pass Circle Throw Clear Smog Confuse Ray Counter Curse Detect Dragon Tail Encore Gravity Haze Healing Wish Hone Claws Ingrain Knock Off Magic Coat Block/Mean Look Memento Mirror Coat Moonlight/Morning Sun Perish Song Psycho Shift Rain Dance Rapid Spin Recover, Slack Off, etc. Reflect Refresh Roar/Whirlwind Roost Stealth Rock Taunt U-Turn Wish Yawn Disallowed Acid Armor/Iron Defense/Barrier Acid Spray Agility, Rock Polish, etc. Amnesia Belly Drum Calm Mind Charge Beam Coil Copycat Cosmic Power Cotton Guard Dragon Dance Feather Dance Flame Charge Glare Growth Leech Seed Light Screen Lovely Kiss/Sleep Powder Metal Sound Pain Split Nasty Plot Quiver Dance Shell Smash Shift Gear Sleep Talk Spikes Spore Stockpile Stun Spore Swords Dance Tail Glow Thunder Wave Toxic Spikes Will-O-Wisp Controversial Disable Hypnosis Switcheroo/Trick Here is our Pokemon so far: Name: Tomohawk Typing: Flying/Fighting Base Stats: 105 HP/60 Atk/90 Def/115 SpA/80 SpD/85 Spe Abilities: Intimidate/Prankster Move Discussion Posting Rules The list of moves in this post will serve as the single point-of-reference for the current state of the discussion. Post arguments for moves to be Allowed or Disallowed from the Pokemon's final movepool. All posts should be presented with reasoning. Posting lists of moves is strictly prohibited. Do not copy the TL's list, and then add "Yes/No" or a similarly worthless comment, beside each one. Posts that contain lists of moves will be deleted, even if the post contains additional reasoning and content. The Topic Leader will update the list continuously throughout the discussion, using recent posts to determine changes to the move list. Moves may have a fluctuating status as the community debates for or against the move in response to changes in the OP. Posts should be based on the current state of the list in the OP. It is the responsibility of each member to check the OP before making any post in the thread. Posts that demonstrate lack of familiarity with the current OP will be deleted. The Topic Leader is the sole arbiter for determining "general community consensus". The TL may ignore arguments for or against certain moves, if they feel the argument is not presented with sufficient evidence or reasoning. Do not assume that the existence of a few dissenting posts will ensure that a move will be categorized as Controversial. All moves that are considered Competitive for this Pokemon are included in the list in the OP. Non-Competitive moves should not be discussed in this thread, unless you feel they are incorrectly categorized and should be considered Competitive (see next rule). If you disagree with the TL's categorization of a move as Competitive or Non-Competitive, you can post arguments in this thread, but reasoning must be supplied. Remember to only discuss moves that you think are controversial in that they have competitive merit. Let's do this!
