Explored this mon a bit. Its good but I think you are overhyping it a bit.
+ of all of the NFEs to CE with Gallade, I think better options Exist.
Like Rhydon. Because 220 Atk STAB Eq is one of the most tried and true strategies known in Pokemon.
Brambane that cake mimic looks delicious and I get a laugh out of it due to being a mimic.
The Mouth/Teeth are perfectly fine. They work good for the design.
As for the frosting (or is it icing?), maybe make it dark chocolate to play up the dark type aspect?
I feel going darker would make a...
Oh boy. My 2nd fav part of the CAP process.
Now that I have some time, been looking at some designs. And liking a lot of what I see.
But here are some thoughts/shoutouts I have:
Note: Please take what I say with a grain of salt. I suck at drawing and art.
Darek851: Has a hyper urban aesthetic...
Yeah so Unaware is banned and no Xatu = stall got super nerf.
Stall has taken a huge hit which naturally makes me upset and quite sad.
I understand why the Council wants it and a lot of people have been wanting it, but its none the less upsetting.
So I'm taking a break from inheritance but I...
Honestly unsure what to think right now.
Meta has been chaotic but I have been greatly enjoying it.
However everything I love to use gets banned or people want it banned which is upsetting.
Blac inherit from Nido. Banned
I want to play Regen spam teams to force people into grind games, nah...
Thank god this thread was locked for 24 hours.
The prep time was very appreciated.
Thank you Sun for the discussion and edits. And everyone on PS/Discord for your advice and input.
Attached is my write up.
Heads UP: Take what I say with a grain of salt. I know Im a shit player and my knowledge...
CAP 29 should not have any abilities outside of Color Change.
Our concept is to make the most out of a negative ability (which Im excited Color Change won). Trying to build the CAP out of 2 abilities sounds like a massive pain. If you give the mon a useless flavor ability like Friend Guard...
Its been a long time since I last seriously played Inherit.
Alas, no Masq x Cune or Breloom x Snorlax (I miss my gods of stall)
Have some ideas I want to post (and ironically they are not stall)
Edit: Oh seriously people. Now Chansey and Cress are banned? Lame.
Nidoking x Blacephlaon:
So the easiest ways to make Color Change work offensively is 2 ideas:
A) Give high offensive stats to make up for the assumed lack of stab 90% of the time
B) Give this CAP a colorful move pool that lets it take advantage of the type it gets turned into (puns somewhat intended).
I find Emergency Exit really interesting.
Its an ability you have no control over but it turns the mon into a pivot by letting the opponent hitting you.
Think Teleport but your opponent decides how to trigger it.
It def is a negative ability but can lead to some interesting discussion in how...
Ok, ive been lurking after coming out of my hiatus. And I got to say, interesting topic and great discussion. A lot of point I wanted to make have been already made. And as someone who wanted an ability based concept, Im super excited that primary ability discussion is coming right after this...
So in general, I think the CAP process should be quite malleable.
We should have the ability to adjust the flow of the process to suit the Mons concept.
Because certain concepts require a different approach.
For Ex: If a pokemon concept is ability based (like CAP 29), ability should be 1st thing...
