    Metagame Inheritance

    It falls into a few different categories, based on my research. These would be: overall higher stats than the original user (which can manifest using sets commonly seen on the original user or not), granting access to moves/abilities that improve the performance of the recipient even if the...

    Metagame Inheritance

    Longtime lurker, first-time poster. I had a concept that I was kicking around in the OM and Pet Mods workshops and many have advised me of the fact that the concept is simply a more restrictive version of Inheritance. Namely, same rules of replacing one Pokemon's ability and movepool with...

    Resource Pet Mods Workshop

    Off the top of my head, because the new evo's ability to gain new moves leaves a ton of open space for crazy coverage/boosting moves, I'm starting off with pre-evos that already have access to an interesting boosting move, good coverage or strong attacks on their typically non-dominant attacking...

    Yes, they would. I gave two examples, Ninetales-A and Shedinja, in my Rules and Guidelines. This further limits the pool of Pokemon that can be utilized; some common ones like Heatran and Tornadus disappear outright as a result.

    Masquerade Metagame premise: The gimmick of this National Dex OU-based Metagame is that all Pokemon lose their entire native movepools and abilities, but in exchange, acquire the movepool and ability of another Pokemon that shares their exact typing. This functions like a more restrictive...

    Metagame Workshop

    Oh ok, that makes more sense. I agree with the point about Z being the best mono-Normal special attacker; might be interesting to see something like Porygon2 or Type: Null take its movepool for a special attacker thanks to the superior bulk to play more of a tank role. I think you've made a...

    Metagame Workshop

    Wanted to clear up a few things about some of the responses. I'm open to the concept of opening Mega access to all who are OU legal, even those that change type. As I originally developed the idea I thought locking availability to only allow Megas which keep their pre-Mega typing could be a...

    Metagame Workshop

    Understood. Well, considering this is a workshop environment and all, could I put it to the group just to speculate on some sets, using the structure I put in place? I know this will never become an actual OM, but I still would like to see what other strategic minds could come up with, for the...

    Metagame Workshop

    Yep, pretty much. I ran this past the crew on the OM Discord to see if it could stand on its own before I posted anything, knowing that this was close to a pre-existing OM. Because of the additional restrictions I'd like to think this would lead to even more creative teambuilding (with no...
