    Frankly, no, we don't "all agree" on this; the very existence of people arguing in Normalize's favor disproves that. Thunder Wave is one move which CAP 29 might not even get, and doesn't need to fulfill concept, Normalize or no. As for Tyranitar eating Future Sight, there's a difference between...

    CAP 29 - Part 2 - Primary Ability Discussion

    I've already given my thoughts on Defeatist and Slow Start previously, but to reiterate the problems with these: 1) The concept isn't "a mon with an objectively terrible ability", it's "a mon that succeeds in part because of an ability that most other mons wouldn't want". It's literally...

    I think people are seriously underestimating just how debilitating Slow Start is. Let's look at the ZU viability list for reference. Some of their best mons include Sneasel, Kangaskhan, and Basculin. Regigigas outclasses them in every single stat except Sneasel in speed. The raw power level of...

    I'm going to throw my hat in the ring for Normalize here. First of all, I don't think the comparisons to Spectrier are accurate, for a few reasons: 1: CAP 29 will not have Grim Neigh, because...under this scenario, it would have Normalize. We aren't going to have to worry about a snowball...

    The issue I have with Slow Start in particular is this: it's outclassed by Stall for our purposes. In order to make a bad ability good, we have to look at what benefits Slow Start brings to a blank slate of a mon - namely, "we want to go last". In other words, the exact same thing Stall already...

    Echoing what people have said above, I don't think abilities like Hustle or Weak Armor are what we're looking for here. Hustle is mathematically a direct boost to CAP 29's power level, and the accuracy drop achieves little beyond making CAP 29 aggravating to use. Weak Armor is...well, there are...

    CAP 29 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    I fairly strongly disagree with the idea that we should prioritize abilities that are purely negative for CAP 29. We already know what the likes of Slow Start and Truant do because we've seen it firsthand. Slaking and Regigigas have stats comparable to Ubers, yet they've been in the lowest of...

    CAP 28 - Part 12 - Flavor Ability Discussion

    Hyper Cutter seems a fairly obvious choice, since most mons with very noticeable jaws or "snapping" appendages (Trapinch, Mawile, Pinsir, Kingler, etc etc) have this ability. It could be competitive, since Intimidate immunity is a thing, but realistically I don't see it being used over its...
