    Suggestion: every attack you make puts its percent chance to crit into your crit meter. When your meter reaches or exceeds 100%, you deal a crit that breaks through protect and detect. The remaining percentage rolls over. To empty the opponent's crit meter, knock out one of their pokemon.

    Suggestion: instead of removing accuracy and multiplying the bp of moves by their former hit chance, turn accuracy into latency. For example, fire blast would keep its high damage, and instead of missing 15% of the time, the user's final speed would be multiplied by 0.85 for that turn.

    Hello joim. You are revamping this metagame, right? I recently came here with the goal of creating one of my own, which I think I'd call "absolute mindplay" with a similar premise to yours. Taking a closer look, I get the impression that creating it seperately might be counter-productive...
  9. General Introduce yourself!

    Nice to meet you! I got drawn to smogon because I prefer the means by which it's moderated. Vgc may be where the money is at so to say, but I prefer to have a clean game with as diverse a roster as possible. As for the forum, I wandered in through a hole in /r/stunfisk because I figured I...

    Hello, this is eldritchsyntaxes. I'm here to try and grow a new metagame based around modifying and utilizing elements of the game that go unused in competitive play.
