Choonmons [Version δ]

#52
Now I think of it, what about poor Stunfisk? Pikachu has stolen its typing.
It can always get Water Absorb (instead of Limber, lol).

Also, you could make Fire-types resist Scald, then even with a 30% chance it wouldn't be anywhere near as annoying.

bump because i miss discussion about Choonmons, as well as playing Choonmons.

I find it slightly silly that, stat-wise, Raichu is not considered a Pikachu forme. I also find it kind of silly that there's no way to abuse the 'chu's excellent support movepool, but eh, can't be helped.

The secondary effect of Heaven's Crack is more than a little silly and pointless, since most Flying-types are hit harder by Volt Tackle anyway. Although, it does help against Gengar, Mega Charizard X, Porygon2, PorygonZ, Aerodactyl, and - the absolute bottom of the barrel (buff it pls) - Weezing.

IMO the best Pikachu forme is Rockstar. It's basically everything I love about Aggronite Raichu in Mix and Mega but without those silly "flaw" thingies - it's better in every stat but Special Defense, it can hold whatever item, it has an actually reliable Steel STAB and the best one in the game at that, it doesn't have to contend with Mix and Mega level threats, and it keeps what made me like Aggronite Raichu in the first place - In addition to looking excellent, it's an Electric/Steel with Filter that also has the perfect balance of power, bulk, and speed.

okay so there's a new Pikachu form in the code, we all know what that means, pikachuun needs to wake up from their deep slumber and make another meta-destroying monster. also off-topic but please don't do the "ban all legends but buff them for ubers" thing, because that removes things from being usable in the main meta which i'm pretty sure usually isn't the goal of pet mods.

Pikachu-Pop-Star @ Life Orb
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Light of Ruin
- Dynamo Cannon
- Ice Beam
- Nasty Plot / Calm Mind / Recover / Valkyrie Arrow

this is still pikachu poptart's main set, you can just slap it on stuff, maybe change the nature based on the team needs, pick a fourth move, that sorta stuff

also reverse the leech life changes since it's a nerf now

Now, y'all might be wondering why I unlocked this. I feel like this could gain popularity again, and maybe spark some discussion. Some people probably wanted to talk here, but were denied the access... but who knows. I mean, look at move mastery, that has been ignored for a while, and hasn't been locked or anything. Either way, don't bash my head in for this G-Luke, I just liked this and hoped I could spark some conversation here again.

I also never really got a chance to discuss any of this, as I found it when it was locked... :(

Once again, hope you don't mind just for now G-Luke. It can always be Re-locked if nothing happens here

Okay, I'm gonna post a few things that I would like to see, although these are just for fun. :)
  • Typhlosion becoming Fire / Electric. I mean, It's literally Typhoon + Explosion.
  • Psybeam gets a 30% chance to confuse.
  • Flame Burst gets 50 BP, and leaves a "Sea of Fire" like Fire + Grass Pledge
  • Kyurem-Black gains Ice Hammer.
  • Mimikyu learning Transform. I mean, it's name is literally "Mimic you"
  • A physical Hidden power. Not too sure on a name.
  • Chandelure gets intrinsic levitation.
  • Magnezone also gets intrinsic levitation.
Just a few ideas that I like. I just never really got to discuss this when it was available.

Hidden Force?

Also, how about giving all the Kyurem forms Icicle Crash instead of Ice Hammer?

Tapu Koko is even better in Choonmons SM than in vanilla, thanks to Elecsurge complementing the better Electric threats in the Pikachu formes, Raichu and Porygon-Z. Celesteela and Skarmory are fucking dead now that they have a 4x weakness to what is basically the most dominant type in the game.

And let takes into account where Pikachu is already purposely overpowered in this Pet Mod.

Yay Choon is back!
Gen 7 introduced new things so our Pika mon should also get something
Some ideas
- Exclusive Z Moves for Pikachu formes As its the center of the meta they should be powerful but not too much. The Z Moves can use their signature move as their base move
-Cosplay: Heaven's Crack
-Rock-Star: Bloodthirsty Blade
-Belle: Perfect Glacialist
-Pop-Star: Valkyrie Arrow
-Libre: Imprisoned Strike
-PhD: Genesis Nova (8/8 on this one)


- New Choon same type as PhD though already has its own exclusive Z move
Should probably get a different ability like Levitate, Electric/Psychic Surge or new stats
Or (this one would be the best in my opinion) a signature move through which it can change forme in the middle of the battle to its Electric/Dark counterpart Raichu (Just like Relic Song Meloetta)

Electric Typhlosion with some Electric moves would be nice
New Flame Burst sounds good
Mimikyu is Pikachu in disguise O:
Chandelure and Magnezone literally Levitate so yeah they should in battle as well xD
Not sure about Kyub Hammer
Out fellow Electric type, the slowmon, Vikavolt should get some love in Choonmons
Silvally formes need a bit more power not a lot, Pikachu should still be the main mon

Also to increase the playerbase
Zapmaster thought of Choonmons Random Battle but that'd bring any Pokemon in battle so we though of having Choonmons Battle Factory


This would also help in gathering a compendium of sets as all of us can help in providing sets for it
Pikachu-Libre @ Life Orb
Ability: Lightning Rod
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Volt Tackle
- Knock Off
- Extreme Speed
- Imprisoned Strike

Porygon-Z @ Choice Scarf / Choice Specs
Ability: Adaptability
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Thunderbolt
- Shadow Ball
- Ice Beam
- Psyshock /Hidden Power [Fire]

And one more thing
The starters specially the Kanto ones, especially Charizard and its mega evolutions, specifically Zard X should get something new or get buffed

this slug is the metagame

Gastrodon @ Leftovers
Ability: Storm Drain
EVs: 252 HP / 244 Def / 12 Spe
Bold Nature
- Scald
- Earth Power
- Recover
- Toxic

Gastrodon, as one of the few 'mons that can check all varieties of Pikachu with any level of consistency, is easily one of the best Pokemon in Choonmons from my experience. Like - and largely because of - Pikachu and its forms, it is much easier to use Gastrodon than it is to not. It also neatly counters Electric spam in general, and other water or ground types.

Basically, Gastrodon is the beast and is the key to success.
