  1. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 4 - Mega Ability Discussion

    I like Adaptability. Not even because I can foresee situations where it'd make a difference, can't do that without the statblock anyway, but... well, strengths of typing concept, having an incentive to use moves of the typing is pro-concept, right? Let's just not overdo it on the stats. Mega...

  3. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    I don't! Getting rid of the base form's ability reduces the anti-concept vibes some people are getting from the suggestions of it being a Water immunity one and lets us give the Mega form something more suited to what the mega form's supposed to achieve, such as tanking special hits (with Sand...

    And these are reasons why I'd suggest Storm Drain as the ability for the base form. In a way, it'd clip into another concept a little - the one investigating having two useful abilities and getting to use both, which cited Sableye as an example. If CAP got Storm Drain in base form and Sand...
  5. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 4 - Primary Ability Discussion

    As an advocate of taking a Special Attacking route with the CAP, I'm also in favor of Storm Drain. It patches up the Water weakness, and we agreed we're supposed to threaten Water types, it gives the SpA boost to hit harder with Sludge Wave/Power Gem/Ice Beam/whatever we give it, and it isn't...

    Would probably be more expedient with Ice Beam, especially since if you're hitting it on the switch-in you'd worry about the Intimidate drop with a physical move. oh man I'm pushing the special attacking idea
  7. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 3 - Threats Discussion

    Is this supposed to be spamming moves? I'd imagine it to mostly hit things in the weakness with its STABs to make use of its typing instead of having brute force to just do well overall. Possibly hit some more things in weaknesses with coverage. Possibly, if that one ability can be assumed...
  8. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 3 - Threats Discussion

    Personally I'd be entirely in favor of a type immune ability... eh, I'm new here and so I have only a faint idea of what poll jumping is. Anyway. This is meant to beat Talonflame, and probably other Fire types as well by having them get rocked. Fire types burn, and a way partially around it is...

  10. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    I'm just going to drop a vote on one of the partial Rock typings. You mention an utility counter, and I think being able to take out some Pokemon (like Talonflame and Weavile, okay) with a move coming off weak offensive stats BUT using a STAB SE move is being utility while not being just good...
  11. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 2 - Typing Discussion

    I'm also in favor of changing the typing upon Mega Evolution. Going, say, from Bug to Rock swaps a Flying weakness for a Ground one (from resisting the other type at first). It's interesting, and helps both normally pretty bad types to have to be useful when you need them to be, which if I'm not...
  12. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    Speaking of Bug types, I'd like to draw attention to two combinations using that type. right now, there's all of one Bug/Electric Pokemon... line. One fully evolved one, anyway, namely Galvantula. It has only two weaknesses, Rock and Fire. It also has four resistances... and pretty terrible...
  13. CAP 21 CAP 21 - Part 1 - Concept Assessment

    One Pokemon that exists is Alakazam with its pure Psychic type. As a Psychic type, Alakazam resists Psychic moves and Fighting moves, while being weak to Dark, Ghost and Bug moves. As itself, Alakazam's stats are excellent Special Attack and a nice 120 Speed, hampered by really low HP and...

    Probably a bit too similar to a few previous concepts, but might still be worth a try. Name: Wearer of Many Masks General Description: A Pokemon viable with various held items, its Mega Stone being one of them, obfuscating its immediate purpose in the team. Justification: Knowledge about the...

    Can this meta also include unreleased stuff like items like Custap Berry and gems?
  18. The Power Within

    Whoa, I should've spoken up earlier. But yeah, there's plenty of metas that allow status moves already, like Typemons and STABmons and then it ends up being shell smash simple swoobat stored power. And there's still some creative or just useful things to be done. Zap Cannon Mega Pidgeot, that...
  19. The Power Within

    To be fair, when I first read the meta synopsis, I kind of assumed/hoped that only non-status moves would count - allowing for better coverage than a 60 BP special move, sure, but avoiding this degeneration into everything getting the setup it didn't have. I'm kind of curious how that idea...
