    Found this on DeviantArt. Full color type combinations have not been used yet. Half color type combinations have been used, but not in that order.

    That's kind of the problem right there. It could be abused way too easily. Face it, if your opponent has a Blissey, the battle essentially becomes 6 v. 5. Also, the point of pokemon is to start off with weak pokemon and level them up through the story, gradually encountering stronger pokemon. Some pokemon are weak on purpose, that's why they evolve. It's not right to try and cater to the weaker pokemon, because they're supposed to be weak. That's why Dragonite and Alakazam (among others) got seriously buffed this gen, because GameFreak caters to the strong pokemon.

    Tl;dr - if you wanna use weak pokemon, play NU

    Chansey is OU, your "argument" is the insane ramblings of someone who couldn't find his way out of a paper bag, and you should feel bad.

    You don't have to like my idea, but I think it's a mistake to suggest that having a wall on your team is "situationally broken"... or that this ability is bad because it makes your opponent switch into a wall you might have an answer for...

    When 4th gen was first announced with Diamond and Pearl, what were people speculating the third game was going to be at the time? I don't remember and I was just thinking earlier today that platinum is not something I would've ever thought of.

    Nidoking can have babies, what's wrong is that Nidoran-F can, but not Nidorina nor Nidoqueen, since GSC.

    God, that idea's amazing.


    And lovely tags. Absolutely uncalled for, but lovely. In a sense.

    ...Ok nevermind, the tags weren't uncalled for in the slightest. Your post is bad and you should feel bad.

    As of January Chansey is UU. Perhaps you shouldn't be insulting other people when your insults apply to yourself more than anyone else.

    I agree that that guy is wrong and being an asshole about it, but technically speaking, Chansey was auto-banned and is now in BL.

    (Fire) Opal, as it's a precious gemstone (I think) and matches Giratina's color scheme.

    Psychic should be 95

    We are long overdue with a Psychic/Dark. I'd like it to be a Kirlia evolution

    Of all the Pokemon that could get evolutions, I think Kirlia would be one of the least likely seeing as it already has two evolutions, and the only Pokemon that has more than 2 evolutions to date is Eevee (duh) and Tyrogue (which was done by adding Tyrogue, not the evolutions). Thematically it could make some sense with a psychic/fighting/dark triangle thing, so I guess it's a little more likely than Snorunt getting another evolution. That being said, I don't expect it to ever happen.

    I want a Dunsparce evolution, he's cute, and I think GF can make him an even cutest evolution! That's all I'm thinking...

    It can be... Normal/Dragon? That could be funny and interesting for Dunsparce.

    What?

    How did this happen?

    Did they just ban Eviolite?

    Those &*^&**ards! I'm glad I primarily play wifi battles then...

    Chansey gets banned and unbanned from UU a lot, as it's OU's usage is really BL (passing and not passing the cut by a small number), so, it's ok if it's BL. I don't feel it broken for UU, but that's another thread.

    I'm still wanting more love for Dunsparce.

    It wouldn't and they didn't. They banned CHANSEY from UU because Chansey is a ridiculously bulky mixed wall (especially on the special side) that pretty much everyone realized UU was better without as soon as Chansey took its short stint in OU. Chansey basically rendered any special attackers on your team useless the instant it appeared on your opponents team soooo yeah. No one really wanted it back in the tier after it left it.

    Also I'm pretty sure you completely misinterpreted Jolteon Bandit's post labarith, though I can't honestly puzzle out what he DID mean. It was kind of poorly communicated.

    Anyway, that's off topic. As pointless as the speculation on this thread is, at least it's relevant to the topic at hand.

    Well... I know they were threatening to do so because Chansey and porygon2 were "so good"... but maybe that was just BS...

    But mysteriously, Chansey's been moved to BL... because... uh... not enough people were using it in OU??? Maybe "best special wall in the game" isn't good enough for OU because it doesn't have a good attack stat?

    Anyways, I hope Eviolite gets an attacking partner for XY.

    I also kind of hope Smogon adopts the 1x of each item rule... The thought of more than one choice scarf scares me...

    Edit: Oh, I confused BL with NU. BL just is the lowest tier of OU, so it doesn't matter to me.

    That said, if Smogon thinks XY needs to give Chansey Wish, Normal-Turn, and Regenerator... who am I to argue. :)

    I usually use item clause on my own teams, generally you only need 1x of each item if your using a general team, with the exception of leftovers for wallish teams and occassionally life orb and the choice items. Gen 5 introduced us to new gimmick items that can be useful like eject button and red card, but its just not enough, I dont see the item clause rule being enforced anytime soon, scarfers generally arent using priority anyway so multiple scarfers arent really invincible just annoying

    I'm well aware that they didn't, and that it won't be.

    what the hell are you talking about?
