The other day on IRC the idea of an interesting new metagame was brought up. As a number of people, myself included, are interested in actually playing this metagame comes this thread. First of all, what is Street Pokémon? Street Pokémon is a metagame with no rules, no clauses, except for one: Mimic glitched movesets are banned. This metagame allows such movesets, meaning you could have say, a Skill Swap Slaking, or Extremespeed Snorlax. Copypasted as I'm lazy, here is how the mimic glitch works: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide -Go to 2vs2 battle -Let your Ditto use Transform -After transforming, be sure your Mimicker is faster than Ditto and target your Mimic to Transformed Ditto -Mimic copies the Transform -Target Mimicked Transform into your Ditto -On Dittos turn, switch Ditto to Pokémon which moveset do you want to get (Smeargle) -After Transforming, kill your Mimicking Pokémon -Bring any Pokémon on front and win the match -Now your Mimic Pokémon has forgotten all of its previous moves and knows the moves of the Pokémon which you Transformed into. Now, this would appear to mean you can have up to 3 moves from Gen 4 or back, no Gen 5 moves. Yet one of these copied moves can be Sketch. Now, here is a simple guideline to making a legitimate moveset for something that can learn Mimic: Your moves can be any move from Generations 1 through 4. In addition, as Sketch can be copied over, one move may be any Generation 5 move except for Cold Flare and Freeze Bolt, as these moves are both unreleased and cannot be called by Metronome. A few examples of sets from either the IRC chat that spawned this or my own personal notebook. Note that there should be no talk of banning as there are absolutely no clauses or bans. This is true Street Pokémon. Deoxys-S@Choice Scarf Timid | Pressure 252 Spe ~Spore I expect this to be one of the largest threats in the metagame without Sleep Clause in place. Electivire@Life Orb Adamant | Motor Drive 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe ~ Gear Change / Shell Smash / Icicle Drop ~ Volt Tackle ~ Ice Punch / Dragon Dance ~ Sacred Fire / Fire Punch Perhaps Electivire can finally have the power to actually KO things, instead of leaving them at just more than 1% HP. Machamp (MAFRO) @ Expert Belt Adamant | No Guard 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe ~ Gear Change ~ Sheer Cold ~ Hi Jump Kick ~ Stone Edge / Sing Unfortunately Fire Punch is an egg move, and Machamp cannot hit Forretress for SE damage, however every single thing in the game with Sturdy except for Forretress is hit by Fighting/Rock for SE. Alternatively, run Sing / Grasswhistle / Spore / Sleep Powder / etc. Gear Change for speed, and obliterate everything in your path with the mighty frost magic of your afro. The following lists are all Pokémon who can potentially use Transform to learn any move in the game.
