    "It is said that it usually hides in underwater caves. It can create whirlpools by yawning."

    <&chaos> so it learns a yawn + trap attack
    <CallForJudgement> yawn+whirlpool in one move
    <CallForJudgement> would be pretty legit
    <CallForJudgement> !learn kingdra, yawn
    <+TIBot> Kingdra can learn Yawn.
    <+Melee_Mewtwo> not too bulky for it
    <+Limi> and illumise is followed by a lot of volbeat
    <+Melee_Mewtwo> but still cool
    <+Melee_Mewtwo> gets a free turn of setup
    <+Melee_Mewtwo> shuts down ferro
    <&chaos> melee_mewtwo: yawn the switch and they are trapped
    <&chaos> use protect.
    <&chaos> kill it
    <+Melee_Mewtwo> or DD on it

    Entei: "It is said that when it roars, a volcano erupts somewhere around the globe."

    Every time it uses roar, it instantly uses eruption after forcing the opponent out

    SOOOOOOOO much work for Zarel/Joim/whoever O.O

    Hitmonlee Yellow: When kicking, the sole of its foot turns as hard as a diamond on impact and destroys its enemy.

    Any kicking move is an OHKO.

    Glalie Ruby: Glalie has a body made of rock, which it hardens with an armor of ice. This Pokémon has the ability to freeze moisture in the atmosphere into any shape it desires.

    Additional Rock type, as well as insta-freeze on Water types.

    Typhlosion Gold: If its rage peaks, it becomes so hot that anything that touches it will instantly go up in flames.

    Rage always causes burn.

    DPP: It can't live without the stalk it holds. That's why it defends the stalk from attackers with its life.

    If Farfetch'd's item is not Stick, it slowly faints. If its Stick is knocked off or tricked, it also faints. (It instantly faints anyways so...)



    Pearl: By catching the aura emanating from others, it can read their thoughts and movements.

    While Lucario is in play, you can see what your opponent will do, before it happens, allowing you to perfectly retaliate back.



    DPP: By flapping its leafy fan, it can whip up gusts of 100 ft/second that can level houses.

    Shiftry should learn Hurricane. It doesn't even get gust... :evan:

    HGSS: It lives quietly in the deep forest. It is said to create chilly winter winds with the fans it holds.

    Shiftry gets Snow Warning. (Take that, Abomasnow!)

    Spoink bounces around on its tail. The shock of its bouncing makes its heart pump. As a result, this Pokémon cannot afford to stop bouncing - if it stops, its heart will stop.

    If spoink falls asleep/gets paralyzed it faints?

    Seems Uber to Me. Auto-Spore on switch in..

    Cacturne should get a special move called molest that deals super effective damage to Low HP/Statused pokemon.

    Another Uber Here, Using any physical move causes the opposing pokemon to automatically flinch every turn...

    So using the move lick causes automatic infliction of a curse-like move, coupled with flinches.

    Duskull for LC Ban.

    Fuck... just fuck... We are supposed to be fighting dead tormented souls? Ban on morality grounds....

    No problem, I can work on this for a long while. I'm also liking all this flavors, it'll just take a little time to adapt all abilities, stats, and so :P

    Virizion White: Its head sprouts horns as sharp as blades. Using whirlwind-like movements, it confounds and swiftly cuts opponents.

    Every time it uses a move involving slashing it uses Whirlwind as well imho.

    Volcarona White: A sea of fire engulfs the surroundings of their battles, since they use their six wings to scatter their ember scales.

    New field effect? Anything that's not a fire type takes 1/16 of max HP as damage?

    Rampardos Diamond: Its powerful head butt has enough power to shatter even the most durable things upon impact.

    Any move Rampardos uses involving its head is unresisted. Changed @ below.

    "Diglett can pull their heads underground at the speed of light."
    And you guys were disputing over some mach-speeds. (IDK, instant Dig? Not that it would be useful at all...)

    On the other hand, that explains Diglett's evolution into Dugtrio neatly. Since it arrives at the destination before it starts due to relativistic effects, an observer would see multiples (and therefore Auto-Double Team?).

    Sneasel Pearl: 'It is extremely vicious and will not stop attacking until its foe is incapable of moving.' It will keep attacking first until the opponent flinches/para/sleep etc.

    Pichu BW: 'The electric sacs in its cheeks are small. If even a little electricity leaks, it becomes shocked.' All electric attacks have recoil.

    Shiftry HGSS: 'It lives quietly in the deep forest. It is said to create chilly winter winds with the fans it holds.' Icy Wind makes weather into hail?

    Regigigas Pearl: 'There is an enduring legend that states this Pokémon towed continents with ropes.' When holding escape rope attack is 4x.

    Zap Cannon, Flash Cannon, Hydro Cannon, and Spike Cannon should have no effect.

    Immune to fire, perhaps? Or at least Eruption and Lava Plume.

    Garchomp (Pokepark 2)
    He came to the Crag Area to enter the Battle Tournament. He is unfriendly but can be adorable.
    Garchomp gets Cute Charm gg all

    Also I'm thinking of making a complete list on all changes every pokemon would have

    LOL this idea is just so cool *---*

    Since black holes are singularities in time-space, and its said that Gardevoir distort dimensions, then i think it should have an auto-Trick Room, like a "Permanent Weather Trick Room effect" or something.

    I agree with that and furthermore:

    Those texts talking about a "X value" miles per hour of speed probably are more like a "priority thing" than a "speed stat thing".

    White: Its charge is strong enough to break through a giant castle wall in one blow. This Pokémon is spoken of in legends.

    This doesn't really change much, considering how powerful it is already...

    Oh yeah, I believe Joim said he was starting with Gen 2, so I'll post some pokemon from that era.



    Pearl:It gets nourishment from fear that it absorbs into its red orbs. In daytime, it sleeps in darkness.

    When Misdreavus switches in on a ghost or psychic type, it recovers its health, or gets a stat boost.



    Platinum: the flames it breathes when angry contain toxins. If they cause a burn, it will hurt forever.

    HeartGold: If you are burned by the flames it shoots from its mouth, the pain will never go away.

    When Houndoom attacks with a fire move, it always results in an uncurable burn.



    Pearl: It swims elegantly, mindless of Remoraid hitching on to its broad fins. It has a docile nature.

    Mantine MUST be a docile nature. (Lame...)

    This seems interesting.

    Rotom DP:
    "Its body is composed of plasma. It is known to infiltrate electronic devices and wreak havoc."
    Rotom OHKOes all Electric types by using a contact move.

    Rotom HGSS:
    "Research continues on this Pokémon, which could be the power source of a unique motor."
    Pokemon with Motor Drive have it activated immediately after a Rotom switch-in.

    Rotom Plat/BWB2W2:
    "Its electric-like body can enter some kinds of machines and take control in order to make mischief."
    When there is an Electric type on the field with Rotom, Rotom can manipulate the moves they use.

    Uxie Diamond:
    "Known as 'The Being of Knowledge.' It is said that it can wipe out the memory of those who see its eyes."
    Uxie eliminates Future Sight and makes the foe have 1 move Disabled on a switch-in.

    Uxie Platinum:
    "When UXIE flew, people gained the ability to solve problems. It was the birth of knowledge."
    Uxie learns Fly.
    Same for Mespirit and Azelf, as they have similar entries.

    Mespirit Diamond:
    "Known as 'The Being of Emotion.' It taught humans the nobility of sorrow, pain, and joy."
    On a switch-in, opposing Pokemon use Return (joy) on themselves (pain, sorrow).

    Dialga Gen 5:
    "A legendary Pokémon of Sinnoh. It is said that time flows when Dialga’s heart beats."
    Dialga is inflicted with Attraction on a switch-in. If this is cured in any way besides switching out, all Pokemon on the field are Frozen.

    Dialga HGSS:
    "This Pokémon completely controls the flow of time. It uses its power to travel at will through the past and future."
    Dialga will randomly use the move it used last round (10% chance?) regardless of Disable/whatever, and works Future Sight against the foe, where the foe is damaged instead of Dialga.

    This is gonna be so frickin cool.

    Mew, SoulSilver:
    "Its DNA is said to contain the genetic codes of all Pokémon, so it can use all kinds of techniques."

    Can use any ability it wants. op.

    Poliwhirl, DPP:
    "The spiral pattern on its belly subtly undulates. Staring at it gradually causes drowsiness."

    Staying in for 3 turns on a Poliwhirl will put you to sleep :L

    [​IMG] < [​IMG]
    Keldeo, BW2:
    "When it is resolute, its body fills with power and it becomes swifter. Its jumps are then too fast to follow."

    Keldeo-Resolute simply just needs to have more speed and special attack than regular Keldeo.

    Zekrom, BW2:
    "This legendary Pokémon can scorch the world with lightning. It assists those who want to build an ideal world."

    It's electric attacks need a Burn chance, clearly.

    Qwilfish, Gold:
    "To fire its poison spikes, it must inflate its body by drinking over 2.6 gallons of water all at once."

    Yeah, my idea is that this needs to work like this: If in rain or hit by a water type attack, qwilfish should be able to set up 2 layers of Toxic Spikes / 3 layers of Spikes in one turn. Kinda sketchy one, but if not the spikes part, at least use the Toxic spikes part.

    Ludicolo: "If it hears festive music, it begins moving in rhythm in order to amplify its power."

    Relic Song, Perish Song, Uproar and Belly Drum used by the opponent will double Ludicolo's SpA. Ludicolo also has access to every dance move now (Quiver Dance, Teeter Dance, Feather Dance, Lunar Dance, Swords Dance, Rain Dance, Petal Dance, Dragon Dance, Fiery Dance)

    Probopass: "It controls three units called Mini-Noses using magnetic force. With them, it can attack the foe from three directions."

    Every attack from Probopass is a multi-hit move, each hit dealing a 1/3 of the damage. For example, Earth Power has 90BP, but with this addition, Earth Power hits 3 times, each time having 30BP

    Granbull: "It has a particularly well-developed lower jaw. The huge fangs are heavy, causing it to tilt its head. Unless it is startled, it will not try to bite."

    Granbull can only use biting moves when paralysed. The power of these moves double, at the expense of moving last every time.

    Grumpig: It uses black pearls to amplify its psychic power. It does a strange dance to control foes’ minds.

    Grumpig can now learn Teeter Dance. When holding the Big Pearl, its psychic type moves increase by 30%

    Shuckle: The berries stored in its vaselike shell eventually become a thick, pulpy juice.

    If a Shuckle does not use its berry within 5 turns, it eventually turns into Berry Juice, healing Shuckle by 20HP and then dissapearing.

    Whimsicott: They appear along with whirlwinds. They pull pranks, such as moving furniture and leaving balls of cotton in homes.

    Whenever a pokemon is whirlwinded, as long as Whimsicott is in your party, it will always appear as a replacement. It leaves cotton balls on the opposing pokemon's field, slowing the opposing pokemon down by -1 every time it enters the field.

    This legendary bird POKéMON is said to bring early spring to the wintry lands it visits.
