    You would need to find a way to designate what aspect of the other Pokemon you're borrowing. In your example, how would Showdown know to copy Snorlax's attack, rather than (say) its Special Defense? I can imagine doing this by mandating that Linoone immediately follow Snorlax in your lineup...

    Metagame Pokébilities

    Oh hey, I remember liking this meta. I wish my man Breloom was available this gen, but oh well. At least Excadrill's starting off banned. Since shnowshner pretty much covered all of the new mons this gen, I'll go through and see what got new tech this time around. Slowbro (and Slowking I...

    Metagame Inheritance [OM of the Month]

    Here's a pretty good stallbreaker Zarude set that, I think, should warrant adding Centiskorch to its donors in the viability rankings. Zarude @ Leftovers Ability: Flash Fire EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe Adamant / Jolly Nature - Power Whip - Knock Off - Fire Lash - Coil The...

    Other ideas: Aegislash @ Venusaurite Ability: Stance Change --> Thick Fat EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD Calm Nature - Leech Seed - Synthesis - King's Shield - Shadow Ball Not as good now that Lopunnite is so splashable, but at least King's Shield can scout. Archeops @ Lopunnite Ability...

    Metagame Workshop

    The difference with Mean Look, Block, etc. is that once one party switches out or faints, the opponent will no longer trapped, since those aren't self-trapping moves. If you get an Ingrain/No Retreat off on an opponent and then faint or (with Shed Shell) switch out, they're trapped until you...

    MIRROR, MIRROR Metagame premise: Whenever a Pokemon uses a move, their opponent immediately uses that same move. Mirrored moves are not, themselves, mirrored. They don't go back and forth forever. A Pokemon is able to mirror a move even if their move selection is hindered (i.e. a Pokemon...

    Metagame Shared Power

    Oh cool, Leader's Choice. I haven't figured out the optimal sets for this, but I think a FEAR strategy (to recap: a Level 1 mon that users Endeavor and Leech Seed in conjunction with Sturdy to cheese out KOs) could actually be viable. The only thing every FEAR team would autolose to is Skill...

    Metagame Workshop

    So if I'm understanding this correctly, the attack that would deal more damage goes through, while the one that does less will not deal any damage? This sounds like it would give an immense advantage to any mon that can deal out tons of damage, since they now basically get free turns against...

    Metagame Partners in Crime

    The OP links to the Gen 7 Doubles OU rules; it should link here instead. I also wonder whether it would make sense to swap out their Gravity Sleep Clause for the standard sleep clause, since PiC has more options for effective sleep spreading (No Guard comes to mind). Anyways, some thoughts...
