    So yeah, since Gardevoir has the very versatile ability Trace (and is humanoid, so it's funnier than it would be on Porygon or Porygon2), I wondered if that affects its appearance at all if it copies particular abilities and (if it does) how specific abilities look on it. And since we'll never get an official answer, I thought, "Why not ask other artists what they think it does visually?" So this topic was made and your task is clear. And don't worry if you don't have artistic talent or expensive painting programs; you can still describe what you think would happen for a specific ability and maybe someone who likes the idea can draw it for the both of you. I've provided a few examples, but they're still up for debate.

    Now obviously, some abilities won't be used; you can let me know which abilities to remove by sending me a PM with the title "Remove: [ability name]" and a link inside containing the reason you think it should be removed. Multitype has already been removed since it can't be Traced, and Wonder Guard CAN be Traced.

    white smoke should be an easy one.

    I'd like to see something cool for super luck, like gardevoir having the winning lottery numbers or something.

    Cool idea

    This thread is pretty cool...you might want to put links to the pictures next to the abilities in the OP, though.

    LOL... this is silly.

    I, rather uncreatively, feel inclined to say that it ought to look the same as the Pokemon it's copying it from... but these answers are more fun so screw that. xP

    Hoshit, guys... I have a few really awesome ideas... I'll sketch 'em up and post them up later tonight...

    Let's just say: arena trap, sniper and poison point...

    Arena trap just hit me in an epic way.

    I tried adaptation. It was going to be like an evolution line type of thing, (like this) however I decided not to when it came out horribly. I plan on doing one of these though! HAVE NO FEAR

    EDIT: Like I said I would.

    I might try a few more soon.
