Pick your god of choice and have its incredible powers bestowed upon your team. Rules: OU banlist, except that Teams are allowed one Ubers tier 'God' Pokemon. The other teammates receive the base stat of the Uber Pokemon corresponding to their position on the team. Banlist: Abilities: Huge Power, Pure Power, Shadow Tag Items: Sablenite, (By extension of ability bans, Gengarite, Mawilite, and Medichamite are banned.) Pokemon: Blissey, Chansey, Deoxys-A, (Mega Rayquaza remains banned) Current Watchlist (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Current Watchlist (open) Current Watchlist (close) Dugtrio, Thick Club Explanation: Here's how the Uber's stats are distributed to each team mate. You will be able to recognize from team preview how your opponent is gifting their stats, based upon the position of their Uber. Here's an example: In this case, Yveltal is my Uber Pokemon and is occupying slot 4. So, because Breloom is in slot 1, it will have its HP stat replaced with Yveltal's base HP of 126. Since Clefable is in slot 2, it gets Yveltal's ATK of 131. Heatran in slot 3 gets Yveltal's defense of 95. Yveltal is in slot 4, so nothing receives its special attack stat. Landorus in slot 5 gets Yveltal's Special defense, and lastly, Scizor in slot 6 gets Yveltal's speed stat. Where you place your 'God' Pokemon is extremely important in developing strong teams so do not take this important aspect lightly. What about Mega-Evolutions? In the interest of not creating an entirely broken metagame, Mega Evolved Pokemon will retain their gifted stat before and after mega evolving. This is also the case for form changes. F.A.Q.s What happens when the God has a form change or is a mega? The stats of the god prior to form change or mega evolution are what are used to gift to the other teammates. For example, Aegislash's teammates will receives the shield form's stats. Mega Salamence's teammates get regular Salamence's stats. Primals will gift the stats of their normal forms as well. What about the Gods themselves? Do they gain any stats? No, they don't. Since they're "gifting" to themselves, their stats remain unchanged (i.e. Arceus still has 120 across the board because it only gives stats, not receive). Won't Shedinja be broken? Nope. Shedinja's HP is hardcoded to 1. Hazards are your friends. When will X get banned? There are certainly broken threats that may appear beyond our initial banlist thanks to the coming of a new generation, however, we don't want to ban anything outright before this is even playable, as such, there will be no quick-bans beyond our banlist from Gen 6. Topics on the banlist may be re-suspected but only if relevant arguments are brought up throughout discussion calling for such an action to occur. Things will be both VERY bulky and VERY strong in this meta, so you must prepare accordingly. When the time comes we can look at God bans and teammate bans, but again, please defer discussion about what needs to go until we can test it. What if I don't have an Uber on my team? The Pokemon in the first slot acts as the God Pokemon. Although this strategy isn't necessarily the most effective option, it can most certainly work to some extent thanks to Pokemon with incredibly high stats. Is this playable anywhere? Yes! Thanks to urkerab, it is playable on ROM. http://rom.psim.us Terminology and Notation: See the OP. If you have other questions, PM iLlama, Funbot28, or Niadev and we can update the FAQ.
