Original Thread by Eevee General OP shamelessly copied from rhydreigon by imas234 Hello and welcome back to Fusion Evolution! This is a Pet Mod that revolves around using breeding to create new breeds of powerful Pokemon to be used in an OU environment. This pet mod also had some lore to go with it, which can be seen in the original thread if you're interested. (Also, for returning veterans, there weill be some new stuff here so do give this post a skim read). The New Council: This project will be managed by a team of Fusion Evolution veterans, who are myself, Stitch98, tyarrow1 and OM room. We will do things such as start/end phases, ban stones and introduce new rules. Rules: General: This thread revolves around a 3-phase system, starting with Submissions, where you can submit up to 6 fusions in the format below, then Voting, where you can vote for up to 10 submissions to be added to the Hall of Fame victors (we normally choose 5 at minimum with more selected in the event of a tie) and then discussion, where we talk about possible uses and sets for the victorious Pokemon. When submitting from now on, please only have one post per submission phase and edit all your fusions for that round into that post. We will generally try to keep the length of each phase to the following guideline (subject to change): Submissions: 7 days Voting: 2-3 Days Discussion: 2-4 days Rules of Fusion: Fusions fall into two different categories, regular and DNA. In a regular fusion, any two Pokemon that can be of different gender and have a shared egg group are selected to be fused, but in a DNA fusion two Pokemon, with at least one being genderless or in the Undiscovered Egg Group and neither with a BST of 670 or more are fused, regardless of gender or egg group. However, if one desires to make a DNA fusion with a mon of a BST 670 or higher, the partnering fusee must have a BST of 460 or lower. You still with me? Good. When submitting, please use the following format: Parents: Pokemon X + Pokemon Y Shared Egg Group: If a normal fusion, state which egg group the two parents share. If a DNA Fusion, just skip this line or put "DNA". Offspring Name: The name of the new Pokemon, a portmanteau of the two parents' names (just put them together in whatever sounds good to you). New type: To create the new Pokemon's type, you take one type from each parent. Therefore, a fusion between Heracross and Scizor could be Bug/Steel, Bug/Fighting, Steel/Fighting or pure Bug (the latter of which would be given by taking Bug-type from both parents). New base stats: OK here's where things get a bit tricky. For a regular fusion the each of its new stats is the average of both of its parents' stat plus 10. So that HP stat of our Heracross + Scizor fusion would be (80+70)/2 + 10 = 85 [(Heracross' HP stat + Scizor's HP stat)/2 + 10 = New Pokemon's HP stat). On the other hand, for a DNA fusion, you just use the raw average of each stat without the +10, but you can add a total of 40 BST to any of the new Pokemon's stats, with no more than 20 in each stat. New ability and desc: This is where you can create a new, custom ability for your fusion. This is done by selecting one ability from each parent and combining elements of them (do try to be creative with this, not just sticking two effects together, and please try and make them somewhat balanced). Our Scizor/Heracross could have a fusion between Swarm and Technician, which could boost the power of Bug-type moves by 50%. (You don't need to use colours like I did, and you can see better examples of fused abilities in the archives below). Furthermore, if you combine two abilities that are the same (Swarm + Swarm or Huge Power + Pure Power), they do not stack and just become the original ability, but if this is done on a regular fusion, it gets a +5 boost to all stats to compensate. So if a Heracross/Scizor used Swarm + Swarm, its ability would be Swarm, but its HP stat would be 85 + 5 = 90. On the topic of Hidden Abilities. Yes for the first time ever they are allowed! But of course it comes with a catch. If fusing, one cannot use the hidden abilities of both parents, only one. For example, in the fusion of Garchomp x Dragonite, a combination of Inner Focus + Rough Skin, Multiscale + Sand Veil and Inner Focus + Sand Veil is acceptable, but Multiscale + Rough Skin is not. Notable Moves: A fusion gets access to both of its parent's entire legal movepools, including TMs and Tutor moves, so list any notable moves this Pokemon could use here (Minor note: Smeargle Fusions can only learn Sketch once). Role identification: Talk about what your fusion could do in battle! Hype it up here, and explain to everyone why your fusion is so great and why they should vote for it. NEW - Template!

However, they can use Mega Stones that their parents can use, and when Mega Evolving, Mix 'n' Mega rules apply. For each one of your fusions megas, use the same format as above for the mega as well as the base form. Our Heracross/Scizor Fusion (which I'll name Scizacross) could use Scizorite or Heracronite to create Mega Scizacross S and Mega Scizacross H (although you can use X and Y for fusions with mutiple megas if you so desire, so long as you differentiate). Beedrillite, Mawilite, Diancite and Medichamite are banned, as are all Mega Stones that are banned from OU. Also, we now have a Form Guide to make clear how to fuse certain Pokemon. Guide (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Guide (open) Guide (close) Megas As has been stated, use Mix 'n' Mega rules, so Mega Fused Pokemon get the same stat buffs that their parent would, and the custom ability is overwritten with the Mega's ability. Also the SECONDARY type changes accordingly. Meloetta Meloetta's form changes are the same as its normal forms, and you create the fusion as if it were fusing with Meloetta's Psychic-type form, and then it can transform with Relic Song. This causes the secondary typing to become Fighting (even if there was no 2nd type before). Also, the stats are swapped, not calculated again. If the base form has stats A/B/C/D/E/F, the Fighting-type form has stats of A/D/F/B/C/E (call these forms whatever you like). Aegislash Aegislash works similarly to Meloetta, with you creating the Fusion with the Blade form, and then changing forms with King's Shield or by attacking (i.e. How Stance Change works) and the stats swap like such: A/B/C/D/E/F becomes A/C/B/E/D/F. That's all Minior This one is similar to Aegislash in how it should be fused. Start out with Shield Form then the Stats swap as A/B/C/D/E/F to A/C/B/E/D/(F+60) Darmanitan Stat out with its base form, the Pure Fire type, as the basis of the fusion. Then the stats are made as A/B/C/D/E/F to A/D/(C+50)/B/(E+50)/(F-40) Wishiwashi This one is very tricky, but a dolution was luckly ingeniously made by Reviloja, a concil member.

Calculate the raw stats (and apply DNA boosts when applicable) of the other parent and Wishiwashi-School. 2. To find the stats of Solo form, do the following: - Multiply Attack by 1/7 - Multiply Defense by 1/6 - Multiply Special Attack and Special Defense by 1/5 - add 10 points to speed - round all stats down when applicable Let us know (by PMing me or someone else on the council) if you'd like any more Pokemon added to the form guide! So get out there and get creating! Try some new combinations! Maybe you'll make something to rival the destructive power of Mega Hazard X, or wall sturdier than even the like of Cofagreelix or something more broken than Mega Beegon! A spreadsheet of all existing fusions exists >>here<< Well have fun, and create fun fusions!
