    Pupitar:
    BW: "Its body is as hard as bedrock. By venting pressurized gas, it can launch itself like a rocket."
    B2W2: "This pupa flies around wildly by venting with great force the gas pressurized inside its body."
    Pupitar should be able to learn Fly. It also can not be harmed by ground-type moves.

    Ruby/Sapphire: "...The body is very durable - it avoids damage even if it hits solid steel."
    Emerald: "...Its body can withstand a collision with solid steel."
    Pupitar is immune to Steel-type moves.


    Larvitar:
    Gold/Leaf Green/Heart Gold: "It feeds on soil. After it has eaten a large mountain, it will fall asleep so it can grow."
    If it is a sandstorm, or Larvitar is hit by any move with mud, sand, dirt, or soil in its name, Larvitar falls asleep at the end of the turn. If Larvitar is asleep at the end of the turn, all its stats increase at the end of each turn.


    Kyurem:
    White: "It can produce ultracold air. Its body is frozen."
    If Kyurem is hit by a contact move, the opponent is frozen.

    BW2:"This legendary ice Pokémon waits for a hero to fill in the missing parts of its body with truth or ideals."
    Kyurem can't attack unless Reshiram or Zekrom is in either player's team, or it is Black/White Kyurem.

    Ninjask:

    R: NINJASK moves around at such a high speed that it cannot be seen, even while its crying can be clearly heard. For that reason, this POKéMON was long believed to be invisible. - x2 Evasion upon entrance


    E: Because it darts about vigorously at high speed, it is very difficult to see. Hearing its distinctive cries for too long induces a headache. - Inflicts "headache", acting like Toxic upon entrance. (maybe Perish Song but only on opponent)

    A spicy aroma emanates from around its neck. The aroma acts as a stimulant to restore health.
    Restores half its health every turn, and half the health of its partners every turn.

    [​IMG]

    Its nest is a sloped, bowl-like pit in the desert. Once something has fallen in, there is no escape.
    Dig is a 1-hit KO.

    [​IMG]

    If its coat becomes fully charged with electricity, its tail lights up. It fires hair that zaps on impact.
    Gains access to a multi-hit move that deals damage and also inflicts paralysis.

    Vibrava

    The ultrasonic waves it generates by rubbing its two wings together cause severe headaches.
    Uses Supersonic when sent into battle. Sonicboom does 20 damage and has the added effect of Perish Song. It gains usage of those two moves (It should learn them e_e).

    Fossil mons let's go

    Fossil Mons (open)
    Omastar
    An OMASTAR uses its tentacles to capture its prey. It is believed to have become extinct because its shell grew too large, making its movements slow and ponderous.
    Its speed decreases by 1 stage at the end of every turn. Using Shell Smash will get rid of this effect.

    Kabutops
    Its sleek shape is perfect for swimming. It slashes prey with its claws and drains their fluids.
    Night Slash, Slash and X-Scissor now have the same effect as Drain Punch.

    Cradily
    It ensnares prey with its eight tentacles. It then melts the prey with a strong acid before feeding.
    The Base Power of Acid is doubled (80BP) and it now has a 100% chance to burn the target, in addition to its current effect of having a 10% chance to lower the target's SpD by 1 stage.

    Armaldo
    ARMALDO’s tough armor makes all attacks bounce off. This POKéMON’s two enormous claws can be freely extended or contracted. They have the power to punch right through a steel slab.
    Any damage dealt to Steel type Pokemon by Armaldo is increased x1.5

    Aerodactyl
    It was regenerated from a dinosaur’s genetic matter that was found in amber. It flies with high-pitched cries.
    At the end of every turn, the opposing Pokemon loses 1/16th of their HP. Pokemon with Soundproof are immune to this.

    Rampardos
    Its skull withstands impacts of any magnitude. As a result, its brain never gets the chance to grow.
    Rampardos now has the ability Rock Head. However, as it isn't very intelligent, it only has the brain capacity of learning 3 moves rather than 4.

    Bastiodon
    When attacked, they form a wall with their shieldlike faces to protect their young.
    As long as Bastiodon is in your party and hasn't fainted, any damage done to your unevolved Pokemon is reduced by 50%

    Archeops
    They are intelligent and will cooperate to catch prey. From the ground, they use a running start to take flight.
    As they have to take a running start, Archeops is mono-rock type for the first turn it is on the field (or switched in).

    Carracosta
    Incredible jaw strength enables them to chew up steel beams and rocks along with their prey.
    Bite and Crunch now have doubled BP against Steel and Rock types. Steel's resistance to the moves are ignored.


    Alakazam
    Closing both its eyes heightens all its other senses. This enables it to use its abilities to their extremes.
    Alakazam can now use all three of its abilities at once.

    Blissey
    Anyone who takes even one taste of BLISSEY’s egg becomes unfailingly caring and pleasant to everyone.
    If Blissey uses Egg Bomb, during the next turn, the opposing Pokemon cannot attack Blissey. Egg Bomb now has priority -1, cannot be used on consecutive turns and has a Max PP of 8.

    Breloom
    The seeds on its tail are made of toxic spores. It knocks out foes with quick, virtually invisible punches.
    Any punching move is not affected by Protect or Detect, and has a 20% chance to deal the Toxic special condition to the opposing Pokemon.

    LET'S CONTINUE (sorry for double posting)
    Celebi
    This POKéMON wanders across time. Grass and trees flourish in the forests in which it has appeared.
    Whenever Celebi switches out into a Grass type Pokemon, that Pokemon receives a boost to their Atk and SpA by 1 stage.

    Cloyster
    Once it slams its shell shut, it is impossible to open, even by those with superior strength.
    Its defense increases by 1 stage at the end of every turn. Using Shell Smash will get rid of this effect.

    Conkeldurr
    Rather than rely on force, they master moves that utilize the centrifugal force of spinning concrete.
    Conkeldurr now learns Rapid Spin, which for Conkeldurr, is a 90 BP Rock type move which still has the same effect as Rapid Spin. Rapid Spin cannot be learned alongside Sheer Force.

    Donphan
    Because this POKéMON’s skin is so tough, a normal attack won’t even leave a scratch on it.
    Donphan is immune to any Normal-type move.

    Dragonite
    It is said to make its home somewhere in the sea. It guides crews of shipwrecks to shore.
    Whenever Dragonite switches out, the next Pokemon is immune to Water-type attacks until that Pokemon switches out.

    Dugtrio
    A team of DIGLETT triplets. It triggers huge earthquakes by burrowing 60 miles underground.
    The move Dig has an added effect. On the first turn, it burrows down, using Earthquake on the opponent as well. On the second turn, it hits the opponent with Dig. So it's basically Earthquake+Dig in 2 turns, but on the 1st turn Dugtrio is immune to any attack excluding Ground-type moves.

    Espeon
    By reading air currents, it can predict things such as the weather or its foe’s next move.
    Whenever any weather starter switches into Espeon, their ability does not activate. Espeon now has both Forewarn and Magic Bounce.

    Ferrothorn
    They attach themselves to cave ceilings, firing steel spikes at targets passing beneath them.
    For the first three turns Ferrothorn is in play, it is immune to Ground-type attacks.

    Forretress
    It remains immovably rooted to its tree. It scatters pieces of its hard shell to drive its enemies away.
    Forretress cannot be phazed. Explosion now has an added effect. If the opposing Pokemon survives the Explosion, it is phazed out.

    Garchomp
    It is said that when one runs at high speed, its wings create blades of wind that can fell nearby trees.
    Garchomp now has the ability Speed Boost. It can only use Speed Boost if it has Razor Wind in one of its moveslots, however. (It can now learn Razor Wind)

    Gastrodon
    It has a pliable body without any bones. If any part of its body is torn off, it grows right back.
    Gastrodon now has the ability Regenerator.

    Shuckle
    It stores BERRIES inside its shell. To avoid attacks, it hides beneath rocks and remains completely still.
    Should be able to use an infinite amount of berries. (Chesto Berries should be fun)

    Electrode
    It is known to drift on winds if it is bloated to bursting with stored electricity.
    Gains Levitate after using Charge.

    Weezing
    Inhaling toxic fumes from trash and mixing them inside its body lets it spread an even fouler stench.
    If holding "Rubbish" (new item), Toxic gets implanted immediately upon entrance. Steel types are uneffected.

    That genuinely sounds quite useful. I wouldn't mind a similar effect in the real metagame.

    Steelix:
    Crystal: "The many small metal particles that cover this Pokémon's body reflect bright light well."
    If Steelix is hit by flash, it bounces back at the target.

    Diamond: "Tempered underground under high pressure and heat, its body is harder than any metal."
    Steelix is immune to Steel-type moves.

    Jirachi:
    Jirachi will awaken from its sleep of a thousand years if you sing to it in a voice of purity. It is said to make true any wish that people desire.

    Jirachi enters the battle asleep and will only wake up if sing/relic song/perish song is used.

    Jirachi is said to make wishes come true. While it sleeps, a tough crystalline shell envelops the body to protect it from enemies.

    While Jirachi is asleep, it gets plus 2 defense.

    MOAR

    Gengar

    It hides in shadows. It is said that if GENGAR is hiding, it cools the area by nearly 10 degrees F.
    Whenever Gengar is in play, the opposing Pokemon has a 10% chance of being frozen at the end of each turn.

    Gliscor
    It dances silently through the sky. When it approaches prey, it can land a critical hit in an instant.
    Gliscor's critical hit rate is boosted by 2 stages. This cannot be Baton Passed.

    Gyarados
    Once it begins to rampage, a Gyarados will burn everything down, even in a harsh storm.
    If weather is in play, every move of Gyarados has a 30% chance to burn the target.

    Haxorus
    Its tusks are incredibly destructive. They can easily slice through a thick, sturdy steel column every time.
    Its Dragon-type moves are not resisted by opposing Steel-type Pokemon.

    Heatran
    Its body is made of rugged steel. However, it is partially melted in spots because of its own heat.
    Heatran loses its immunity to Poison type attacks.

    Hippowdon
    It blasts internally stored sand from ports on its body to create a towering twister for attack.
    Hippowdon now learns Twister. For Hippowdon, Twister is a 60BP Ground type attack which doubles power in a Sandstorm.

    Hydreigon
    The heads on their arms do not have brains. They use all three heads to consume and destroy everything.
    Hydreigon destroys everything, and so therefore, its SpA is boosted x1.3 However, since the other heads do not have brains, Hydreigon is capable of only having 3 moveslots.

    Infernape
    Its crown of fire is indicative of its fiery nature. It is beaten by none in terms of quickness.
    Infernape will always attack first.

    Jellicent
    They propel themselves by expelling absorbed seawater from their bodies. Their favorite food is life energy.
    If Jellicent is hit by a Water move, its speed is boosted by 1 stage (It still has Water Absorb). It is immune to Energy Ball.

    Bidoof:
    Diamond: "With nerves of steel, nothing can perturb it. It is more agile and active than it appears."
    Bidoof is immune to the effects of unnerve, taunt, rage powder, follow me, torment, etc.

    Scraggy:
    White: "It immediately headbutts anyone that makes eye contact with it. Its skull is massively thick."
    If the opponent uses leer or glare, or switches their pokemon, Scraggy will use Headbutt. Furthermore, Scraggy takes no recoil damage from Head Smash.

    Victini:
    Black: "This Pokémon brings victory. It is said that Trainers with Victini always win, regardless of the type of encounter."
    Victini is now banned.

    Samurott
    Black: "One swing of the sword incorporated in its armor can fell an opponent. A simple glare from one of them quiets everybody."

    Samurott now knows Sacred Sword and it, along with Razor Shell, will always OHKO the opponent. Intimidate is now his DW ability.

    Chimchar
    Pearl: "Its fiery rear end is fueled by gas made in its belly. Even rain can't extinguish the fire."

    As long as it is raining, Chimchar is immune to Water-type attacks. Gg, Politoed.

    Haha, why am I just learning about this now? This is absolutely fantastic.

    Cofagrigus
    "It has been said that they swallow those who get too close and turn them into mummies. They like to eat gold nuggets."(Black)
    When holding a Nugget or Big Nugget, Cofagrigus will regain HP, similar to Leftovers.

    "Grave robbers who mistake them for real coffins and get too close end up trapped inside their bodies."(B2W2)
    When you hit Cofagrigus with an attack that makes physical contact, you gain the ability Mummy and can no longer switch out.


    Crawdaunt
    "It is a ruffian that uses its pincers to pick up and toss out other Pokémon from its pond."(DPPt/Black/White)
    "Loving to battle, this Pokémon pinches all Pokémon that enter its territory with its pincers and throws them out."(B2W2)
    Crawdaunt can now learn Circle Throw.

    Litwick
    "While shining a light and pretending to be a guide, it leeches off the life force of any who follow it." (White)
    The effect of Leech Seed activates on switch-in

    Shuckle
    "It stores Berries inside its shell. To avoid attacks, it hides beneath rocks and remains completely still." (SoulSilver)
    Shuckle can only be damaged when it attacks.

    Kingdra
    "It is said that it usually hides in underwater caves. It can create whirlpools by yawning." (Gold)
    Every time it uses Yawn, it causes the effect of Whirlpool.

    "It sleeps deep on the ocean floor to build its energy. It is said to cause tornadoes as it wakes." (FireRed)
    When Kingdra wakes up from sleep, it uses Hurricane.

    Deoxys
    "A Pokémon that mutated from an extraterrestrial virus exposed to a laser beam. Its body is configured for superior agility and speed." (Emerald)
    Deoxys automatically has the effect of Agility.

    Metang
    "It floats midair using magnetism. Its body is so tough, even a crash with a jet plane won’t leave a scratch." (LeafGreen)
    Metang has Levitate and is immune to Steel.

    Metagross
    First of all, Metagross is hilarious because all the dex entries are like "oh it's so smart" and then there's just
    "When hunting, this Pokémon pins the prey to the ground under its massive body. It then eats the helpless victim using the large mouth on its stomach." (Sapphire)

    But on a more serious note,
    "It folds its four legs when flying. Its four brains are said to be superior to a supercomputer." (HG/SS)
    Metang can have Levitate as an ability, but it can't use Earthquake, Meteor Mash or any other move that involves arms/legs.

    Giratina
    It was banished for its violence.
    It silently gazed upon the old world from the Distortion World.
    Whenever Giratina attacks, it gets banished or KO'd or whatever

    Infernape
    HeartGold/SoulSilver
    It tosses its enemies around with agility. It uses all its limbs to fight in its own unique style.
    it can learn Circle Throw

    Black/White
    It uses unique fighting moves with fire on its hands and feet. It will take on any opponent.
    FIghting moves it sues are now part Fire as well = double stab

    ^_^ this sounds like MTG flavour battles with ancient hellkite

    Serperior:
    Black:
    "It can stop its opponents' movements with just a glare. It takes in solar energy and boosts it internally."
    If Serperior uses Glare, the opponent can not move at all (unless Serperior is KO'd or switched out), not even to switch out. Serperior's speed doubles in the sun.

    White: "They raise their heads to intimidate opponents but only give it their all when fighting a powerful opponent."
    Serperior gets the ability Intimidate. If the opponent is a lower level than Serperior, its attacks do half damage.

    B2/W2: "It only gives its all against strong opponents who are not fazed by the glare from Serperior's noble eyes."
    Serperior's attacks do 50% more damage against a higher-level opponent. However, an opponent of higher level is immune to Serperior's glare.


    This might be the only metagame in pokemon in the 90s in level are used.

    Snivy:
    Black:
    "It is very intelligent and calm. Being exposed to lots of sunlight makes its movements swifter."
    Snivy is immune to the effects of Torment, Taunt, and Attract. Its speed doubles in sun.

    White: "They photosynthesize by bathing their tails in sunlight. When they are not feeling well, their tails droop."
    If Snivy is affected by a status condition, its tail droops.

    BW2: "Being exposed to sunlight makes its movements swifter. It uses vines more adeptly than its hands."
    When Snivy uses Vine Whip, it hits for triple normal damage.

    Servine:
    Black:
    "It moves along the ground as if sliding. Its swift movements befuddle its foes, and it then attacks with a vine whip."
    An oppenent is automatically confused when Servine switches in.

    White: "They avoid attacks by sinking into the shadows of thick foliage. They retaliate with masterful whipping techniques."
    Servine always has +2 evasion. It can learn Power Whip, which it must use to retaliate against a foe that misses.

    BW2: "When it gets dirty, its leaves can't be used in photosynthesis, so it always keeps itself clean."
    If Servine is hit by Mud Bomb, Mud Slap, Sand-Attack, Sludge Bomb, Sludge Wave, etc., Servine loses a turn.


    Victini:
    White:
    "It creates an unlimited supply of energy inside its body, which it shares with those who touch it."
    BW2: "When it shares the infinite energy it creates, that being's entire body will be overflowing with power."
    If a pokemon hits it with a contact move, its HP is fully restored. Victini can never faint and fully restores its HP immediately after taking damage.
    On a side note, that would be how trainers with Victini always win.

    I say we should vote between OHKO clause or Victini, as it would be too powerful without OHKO moves to bypass it.

    How the heck is it going to be possible to make a realistic meta out of this? I mean, with all the stupidly complex modifications it's going to be almost impossible to program.

    I thought so, but I'm not 100%.
