An enchantment has been cast on this item!
The holder can only be damaged by supereffective attacks or indirect damage!


Yes you read that right! Enchanted items is the first codable metagame where Pokémon have access to two abilities, at the cost for their item slot. On the technical side, items have been chosen objectively, and for the most part at random, to have their effects replaced by that of abilities. Excluding certain items that see usage commonly, 191 items are paired with the 191 abilities.

These items lose their previous ability. This was previously uncodable, but now we can ponder all the possibilities with awesome combinations!

Q&A:

Q: How do moves that affect your abilities work?

A: All items are sticked, unable to be removed in any way!

Q: What about Mega Pokémon?

A: They don't get a secondary ability, unfortunately!

Q: Do abilities stack?

A: No. For example; Regenerator + Regenerator only restores 33%, not 67%.

Q: What about Klutz or Trace?

A: Klutz has no effect at all, however is a waste of an item slot. Trace's effect will depend on what is easiest to code, if not it will be looked into further.

I'm not sure I understand corectly:
So... when you have item with new abillity, when pokemon gain second abillity, or new abillity are replaced on first ability place?
In first way I can see some combos...

EDIT: We have other problem...
When I try write one of the item on list, when Pokemon Showdow give me information about this Item: doesn't exist.

I try with Normalize, but we can have the same situation with more items.
Also - some Items will activate like normal Items + give abillity.
Flame Orb is god example for this item: Give Flash Fire - very usefull abillity for some pokemons weak to fire, but in the same time Burn user, because is on list Items what still remain their effect.
Other Item: Mental Herb - this Item Halved your weight (Light Metal), but after Taunt your Weight will comeback to normal... because still remain his effect.
Own Tempo - Power Herb
Rattled - Salac Berry
Also (x2) - Some items will give two abillity: Light Ball have Insomnia and Trace

We need correct this list, because some Items OR doesn't exist, OR give two Abilities, OR Abillity and normal item effect...

Also I have proposition:
Knock Off is banned for now, because remove item from pokemon. What could be happen, when Knock Off just will turn off item and you can't use second abillity unless when you switch?
Because Item will stay on place, you still have second Abillity, but this also means, Knock Off will nearly always have x1.5 boost for damage, because you have Item anyway.

I'm not sure how to could be coded, but I think this could be better way for this move.

Also - Gastro Acid - How this move work on second abillity?

cool meta! seems very unbalanced at first blush however, this is one that i imagine will need quite a few bans to be balanced. small thing: flame orb is listed as an item that retains its effect yet it also says that it gives flash fire

Ironicaly - Item what give for you immunity from fire, also burn you...

What i say before - Some items also does not exist.
More about thisi write on third post.

No, I believe the first Ability stays as is. It's just that the various items have their effects replaced with the ones of Abilities. So, if you give an Old Amber to a Pokémon, you gain Wonder Skin as a secondary Ability.

Also I have proposition:
Knock Off is banned for now, because remove item from pokemon. What could be happen, when Knock Off just will turn off item and you can't use second abillity unless when you switch?
Because Item will stay on place, you still have second Abillity, but this also means, Knock Off will nearly always have x1.5 boost for damage, because you have Item anyway.

I'm not sure how to could be coded, but I think this could be better way for this move.
I don't think this is a good idea. This metagame is already almost a Pet Mod, and if we change the effects of moves then it will become a true Pet Mod. It's better to keep the effect of Knock Off and similar attacks as is.

Also - Gastro Acid - How this move work on second abillity?
I suppose it will just affect the first Ability and not the item. Magic Room and Embargo, to the contrary, would affect the items, aka the secondary Abilities.

Speaking of the meta, I can see a combo of Trick/Switcheroo + Love Ball (Truant) being very annoying. Soft Sand (Slow Start) and Deep Sea Scale (Defiant) could have a similar niche and be very useful to cripple physical attackers and mixed attackers respectively.

Removed Toxic and Flame orb, as well as some other useless stuff. If it isn't on either list it isn't effected, but smaller list I included was just to highlight the fact that these items are still usable.

No Item should give two abilities, but two people were making the list to save time, so they would have a hard time checking. If anybody else see any double up then PM me, I'll fix it :D

And items lose their original effect if they are connected to an item!

No complex bans, knock off is banned permanently

Hmm... I think more dangerous could be Normalize on Gengar/other ghost with Trick/Switcheroo.

But... Item for Normalize does not exist in Showdown (I checked it - nothing).

Also:

No Sand Rush and Sand Stream on list, and Soft Sand have two abilities as well (Serene Grace and Slow Start).

But... maybe It's time for my proposition for sample set:

Floatzel @ Dragon Gem (no item for Primordial Sea)
Ability: Swift Swim
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Adamant/Jolly Nature
- Crunch
- Waterfall
- Ice Punch
- Brick Break

Yup, this is the fastest user of Swift Swim, and also is sixth the strongest user of this abillity.
Dragon Gem give Drizzle...
I think this one gain a lot of value in this meta, when weather abilities will be not baned.

Movepool could be better, but with this moveset this pokemon can hit nearly everything super effective or neutral (expect Azumaril).
Quite Scary.

Only one thing what makes this pokemonnot that effective like others is defensive stats... quite weak to priority.

EDIT: More sets:

Thundurus-Therian (M) @ Poison Gem / DeepSeaTooth
Ability: Volt Absorb
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Thunder / Thunderbolt
- Focus Blast
- Dark Pulse
- Flash Cannon

Okay... No Guard is really good abillity on this pokemon: Finally Focus Miss becomes into Focus NoMiss, also with powerfull STAB Thunder... also NoMiss.
Two other moves are fillers.

Alternativly we could go for Delta Stream for pokemon wihout weaknes - here your choice.

Magnezone @ Maranga Berry / Poison Gem / Sea intence
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Modest Nature
- Thunderbolt / Zap Canon
- Flash Cannon
- Tri Attack (when Sea Intence) / Filler
- Volt Switch

Okay, this pokemon gain also some usefull stuff.

- Maranga Berry give Levitate - with this abillity finally we lose weaknes to ground, and also we are immune to Spikes - what is nice bonus for sure.

- Poison Gem give No Guard - Zap Canon is really strong move with 100% change for paralysis. We have also Thunder, but Zap Cannon outlases Thunder in damage and effect.

- Sea Intence give Refrigerate - Finally BoltBeam combo on this pokemon! This abillity give clearly strong coverage.

Volt Switch - Let's switch pokemon when oponent use Magnet Pull Fighting or Fire pokemon, and them switch into this thing counter.
Doesn't work on Ground pokemons, so be carefull against mold Breaker Ground pokemons.

Alakazam @ Rindo Berry
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Disable
- Encore
- Protect
- Psychic

Let's destroy oponents day and use Prankster Disable with Encore combo!
Protect for check first move from oponent, where Psychic just for STAB move against Fighting pokemons.
On this thing even Poison/Burn doesn't work, because Magic Guard, and for the same reason he can switch how many time he want - Hazards deal no damage on him!
Paralysis, however, is something what this pokemon doesn't like get.

Well, this is actually true. All Power items (Power Anklet, Power Band, Power Belt, Power Bracer, Power Lens and Power Weight) aren't programmed yet. So either they will be programmed into Pokémon Showdown, or we replace them with other existing items.

One question. Will Scrappy make Earthquake hits Flying types? Because if it is, that Diggersby set in the OP doesn't need return and you just need to slap Agility or something in place of Return, making it a Double Dance set.

Also, I believe this is a derivation of the Geomancy Swoobat set in Sketchmons.

Swoobat @ Speed Boost
Ability: Simple
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Calm Mind
- Stored Power
- Heat Wave
- Roost/Substitute/Air Slash

You know this right? You give a chance to set up, then destroy things. Stored Power will reach 140 BP after +2/+2/+2 (which requires only one turn of Calm Mind).

Scrappy I believe does not make Ground type hit Flying.
Instead you could go for Mold Breaker - usefull against all Levitate pokemons and against Multiscale. Also - Sturdy becomes useless against Mold Breaker users. :)

Excadrill with Magnet pull could be really scarry against all Steel pokemons. With Mold Breaker - also remove Levitate and other stuff.

No Guard Jolteon with Thunder and Sing?
No Guard Sleping moves in general?

Good thing we have sleeping clause. And Magic Bounce.

EDIT: okay, this thing looks more usefull than before:

Ninjask @ Miracle Seed
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Protect
- Substitute
- Baton Pass
- Defog

Clear Suport combined with hazard removal.
Item give Magic Guard, but Simple can give better boost for speed in shorter time.
Also - Magic Bounce is option against not MoldRoar or MoldWhirlwind combo, as well like against no MoldTaunt, MoldEncore and... actually, MoldDisable is not that scary, when we anyway switch between moves eatch turn.

This little guyis the fastest natural user of Speed Boost, but you can go for other Baton Pass user when you want.

For what this thing can pass speed?
For example: Porygon-Z:

Porygon-Z @ Rose Incense
Ability: Adaptability
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Shadow Ball
- Substitute

STAB Adaptability bonus is to weak you say? What about STAB Protean AND Adaptability?

This thing can use double power Thunderbolt, Ice Beam and other stuff. With good predition, we can take some hits really effective. You feel in next turn Shadow Ball? Substitute, and after that another move.
He might need help with speed, because now Scarf is less viable, when you can get second abillity.

Another fun combo, Skill Link + Technician.

Cloyster @ Technician
Ability: Skill Link
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly/Naive Nature
- Shell Smash
- Icicle Spear
- Rock Blast
- Ice Shard/Spike Cannon/Hydro Pump

Breloom @ Skill Link
Ability: Technician
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Spore
- Bullet Seed
- Mach Punch
- Rock Tomb/Substitute/Swords Dance
 
#16
Talonflame @ Miracle Seed / Aguav Berry
Ability: Gale Wings
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Brave Bird
- Flare Blitz
- Roost
- Tailwind

Magic Guard Talonflame... Or Adaptability for better damage?
Removing Stealth Rock weaknes and Recoil is nice option, but Adaptability give much better damage withx2 STAB instead of x1.5 (also - Adatability deal a little more damage than normal STAB x Life Orb (x1.95 normal STAB x Life Orb vs x2.0 Adaptability STAB).

Also - Maybe making second variant of meta with only items what can unlock second knowing by pokemon anyway ability could be interesting? Some pokemons could gain a lot from this format when other pokemon does not gain accest to nearly all abilities.

I really want making Hawlucha with Mold Breaker + Limber, or Hippowdon with Sand Stream + Sand Force combo, but when all pokemon can gain accest to all abilities... some abilities will be in shadow of all of this fantastic abilities (Why we would use Reckles, when I can use Adaptability for set with just STAB moves? Sturdy over Focus Sash and etc.).

What about this proposition?
EDIT: also - have in mind another metagame - Gods and Folowers - have second variant with Overlord and Underlings.
So... we have no reason to NOT make also second variant for this metagame. :)

Please keep suggestions for other metagames out of this one, not only is there threads for this specifically, but this is also a metagame already, and its uncodable. This metagame is as complex as it is because it's codable. Idk if you're trolling or not, but Overlods and Underlings is actually the real name of G&F (UU). Please keep it focused on this metagame :)
He knows that, hes suggesting a derivative metaganme in the same way that GaF has OaU. Its off topic because its a bit too much of a different idea, but he wasn't talking about other oms in this thread
also change ou to om in the op, unless I'm misunderstanding something

Scrappy doesn't do that, as has been said.
Swoobat seems annoying, however, especially considering that it gets an effective +40 bp after it koes something at +2, and then another +40 the next turn. Thank god for moody bans.

Few ideas:

  • Shock Drive (Sheer Force) > Life Orb on most special attackers, excluding the ones that rely on the secondary effects of their moves to be effective or rely on moves that don't have secondary effects. While the boost is only slightly higher than that of the LO, it doesn't have recoil damage which greatly improves the longevity of attackers that normally rely on LO for extra damage output.
  • I was about to suggest something like Sand Stream + Sand Rush Tyranitar for what essentially amounts to non-move-locked ScarfTar without the necessity of running Jolly to maximize its speed, as well as Sand Rush + Sand Stream Excadrill to allow Excadrill to set its own sand automatically, but neither Sand Rush nor Sand Stream have items corresponding to them. Dunno if that's intentional or not but if you could fix it that'd be appreciated... or maybe not, because both of those are horrifying.
  • Most abilities that are good in AAA will be good here as well, but keep in mind that the effectiveness of a Pokémon running a certain ability is based not only on its typing, stats, and movepool but also on its current ability. For that reason, Pokémon that already pack good abilities are at an advantage as they're able to run another ability with less opportunity cost than their counterparts with worse abilities.
  • Micle Berry (Magic Bounce) normal Sableye to compress the roles of its normal form and Mega, maybe? Granted it still has distinct disadvantages over its Mega in that it has to suffer through its awful defensive stats, but it's still possibly worth considering if you want to run another Mega.
  • Speaking of Magic Bounce, anything with Mold Breaker + Micle Berry or Magic Bounce + Oran Berry becomes the ultimate hazards lead. Or user of status moves in general, really.
  • Okay, this is a bit silly, but... No Guard + Kasib Berry (Hustle) Machamp or Hustle + Poison Gem (No Guard) Durant? Hits hard without incurring the penalty to Accuracy that Hustle normally brings.
  • more later because this is such a cool idea for a meta and I have lots of thoughts for it

Durant @ Poison Gem
Ability: Hustle + No Guard
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpD / 252 Spe

Whimsicott @ Poison Gem

Bold Nature

No Guard Galaxy all over again. That's a +1 priority Spore that goes through Substitutes.


Here are some things:

If I give Sylveon an Air Balloon, she gets both Pixilate and Aerilate. What happens then?
Same with Refrigerate Aurorus.

If I give Zygarde a Fairy Gem, it gets both Aura Break and Fairy Aura. What happens?

At a guess, it probably activates Fairy Aura as normal and then Aura Break reverses the multiplier like it usually does. If that's how it works, this is actually pretty cool because it gives Zygarde added defense against Fairy-type moves which it's normally weak to.

Alright, huh, sorry SpiderKoloPL you've posted a lot so didn't mean to misread.
Regarding the gems and general unreleased items, it's not going to be an issue in the final product as it won't be difficult just to quickly make them released. I'll go over the list now and attempt to find all the missing abilities. Sorry for any inconvenience, but we'll get it working.

Asumi Pixilate would active first, then Aerilate would cancel it out, essentially only giving it Aerilate. Or Pixilate would turn it into fairy and it would do nothing, it depends on what is easier to code. Same with Zygarde

And sorry in advance for any coders, I know this is a huge project to code, hopefully we'll win OMOTM as quickly as possible :P

Fixed: Title is now Enchanted Items instead of "Enchanted items - the metagame with additional abilities"
- Looking into all the items now and hopefully it'll be fixed by the end of today, no reason to mention it more :P
- Looking for a banner Sobi can you help? <3 If you can hit me up in PMs!

This one... is so powerfull:

Smeargle @ Rindo Berry
Ability: Own Tempo
EVs: 248 HP / 8 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Spore
- Destiny Bond
- Parting Shot
- Guard Split

Prankster Smeargle.
This thing can take defensive stats from walls, and them Parting Shot into other pokemon.
When we predict sweaper - Destiny Bond
Thanks to Sketch - this little guy can use any move what he want, and thanks to prankster - all status with +1 priority... How broken he might be?

About two -ates ability... I'm not sure, but propably abillity will ignore Item OR item - ability. I'm not sure what have priority in this case.

But when Zygarde have Fairy Aura... that could means All fairy moves are now weaker, because Aura Break works only when on battle we have other aura.
From x1.33 more power, they drop into x0.75 power for Fairy moves...
Interesting defensive combo, what can get only Zygarde legal in OU...
Also - Dark Aura looks interesting - less damage from Sucker Punch is always nice option, but he propably could preffer Tinted Lens.

If I give Aurorus a Rose Incense, it gets Refrigerate and Protean. If it uses Hyper Voice, will Protean change Aurorus into Normal-type (Hyper Voice) before activating Refrigerate (essentially making it non-STAB) or will Refrigerate activate first (turning Hyper Voice into Ice-type) and change Aurorus' type into pure Ice?
