    and like close combat, it had a 120 base power and a semi-crippling side effect

    Shadow Force is feasible, but mostly not:
    1). It is Giratina's special move. Nintendo doesn't give special moves for a certain Pokemon to random others
    2). If this is suppossed to be competitive, that would never work.

    1) Lucario's signature move was randomly slapped on a bird of happiness.

    2) Not every move made has to be feasible for competition.

    Ignore my double post earlier, my Wii glitched up on me.

    From a competitive standpoint, Shadow Force is just slightly more useful than Dig. Actually, the pokemon might be able to pull off some semi-novelty stalling set if it got Mean Look, so...it's worth considering.

    I really wouldn't consider Aura Sphere Lucario's signature move though, several other pokemon besides Togekiss have it. Darkrai got Roar of Time and Spacial Rend from an event, Spore used to be Parasect's signature move until Breloom got it, etc, so passing on "signature" moves onto another pokemon isn't completely unthinkable.

    it was just a suggestion, because people were mad about close combat. in reality, who would be dumb enough to use it?

    Create-a-Pokemonv2 dissapeared!
    Player switched in Dunsparce.
    Shadow Force doesn't affect Dunsparce...

    What's Ghost/Fighting good for? It gets killed by Alakazam's Psychic.

    Why did you even post here? There's a new thread and this one can go away.
