Lettermons! [Stage 3 -- Voting Open!]

LETTERMONS!

Welcome to Lettermons, my first Pet Mod! Lettermons is a Pet Mod where every Pokemon is redesigned, based on the letters in its name! Confused? Here's how it will all work:

Step 1: New Typing!
Every Pokemon will be given a new typing that shares the same letter as the first letter in its name. For example, a Pokemon that starts with the letter "R" would get Rock typing. If the first letter in a Pokemon's name doesn't correspond to a typing, it will proceed to the next letter in its name (so for example, Mew gets Electric typing because no type starts with the letter "M") and so on until it gets a letter that matches. If a Pokemon has only one typing it gains this typing as a secondary typing. If a Pokemon has 2 typings already, I (and eventually a council) will decide which typing to replace. If a letter has more than one typing (for example "F" has Fire and Fairy) then I (and eventually a council) will choose which typing is more appropriate.

Step 2: New Hidden Ability!
Every Pokemon will be given a new Hidden Ability based on the last letter in their name. For example, I Pokemon that ends with the letter "N" will receive Natural Cure, Normalize, or No Guard. If the last letter in a Pokemon's name doesn't correspond to an ability (so x, y, and z) then it will proceed to the second last letter of their name and so on until they get a letter that matches. I (and eventually a council) will make the decision on what ability to give each Pokemon.

Step 3: New Moves!
Every Pokemon will now get a new move that starts with the same letter as the rest of the letters in their name! For example, Ferrothorn will receive 8 new moves that start with the letters "E", "R", "R", "O", "T", "H", "O", and "R". In addition to these, every Pokemon will receive 3 other moves not based on their letters, but they must have the same typing as the Pokemon. This is for those Pokemon that don't get good new STAB moves for their new typing, and to give out status moves that can help a Pokemon succeed.

What do you get to do? Propose the moves! Every week I will put forward a slate of 5 Pokemon with their new typing and new hidden ability. You, the community, will then have 5 days to propose possible new moves for each Pokemon based on the above guidelines. Then, we will have 2 days to vote! At the end of the week I will make a post that states the new typing, hidden ability, and moves of each Pokemon in that week's slate and put forward the next one.

We will do the tiers in this order:
OU-->UU-->Ubers (some may be nerfed enough to bring them down :O)-->RU-->NU-->PU

Mega Pokemon keep their current ability, but get access to the new moves. If a Pokemon stays the same type during Mega Evolution (for example Charizard --> Mega Charizard Y) that Mega will get the same typing as the base form. If the typing changes during Mega Evolution (for example Charizard --> Mega Charizard X) then that Mega will keep the typing it currently has.

So I got some submissions!
Ferrothorn:
E: Earthquake (It gets Bulldoze and not Earthquake and it could be nice coverage)
R: Refresh (Niche, but helps against status) Also a plant so should be able to "refresh" itself.
R: Rain Dance (Tons of stuff get this, support and against Fire!)
O: Outrage (There isnt' a lot with an O and this was best. I guess it could somehow)
T: Taunt (An awesome support move that could let it beat some stally mons)
H: Haze (Niche, but beats boosters)
O: Odor Sleuth (There isn't anything good for it with an O, so took this useless move)
R: Recover (There isn't much left with an R which fits, so I decided to go competitive and give it healing. Plants can recover anyway)

Nice stuff, I forgot what it was about already, but it could be tons of fun. Will tweet this :). May edit in more stuff.

Probably shoulda clarified this lol, but the move you have to give to Mew must start with the letter M (E was used for Electric typing, W for Water Veil). Sorry for any confusion! And Excadrill already gets X-Scissor x.x

EDIT: I guess we should ignore the X in Excadrill since no moves start with that except the one it already gets, rip

Ferrothorn:
New Moves:

E-Eruption:flavor
R-recover:recovery
O-overheat:flavor
T-Twinneedle: relitivly high poison chance
H-Horn Leach: revcovery
O-outrage: not much in o
R-Rapid Spin: utility

1:Flare Blitz:flavor
2:Will-O-Wisp-if this counts as acceptable
3:Heat Crash: high powerd stab becuase of high wieght

So this primarily just helps its deffensive role with recovery and ways of giving some passive damage.


Mew
M-Magma Storm:utility

1:Zap Cannon:flavor
2: nuzzel
3:parabolic charge


Gyrados

Y-Yawn:only Y move and nice defensie utility
R-Rock Polish: its a ground type so flavor and nice move for cleaning
A-Aqua Jet: stab priority
D-Drill Run: ground stab
O-Octazuka: water stab

1:Bone rush: alternate stab
2:Spikes:utility
3:Earth Power: mostly stab

It functions quite well as a sand sweeper or water sweeper, by using aquajet plus dragondance, or even as an utility attacker

Exadrill

x
a-automize: way to bost speed
D-Drain punch: recovery
r-roost: recovery+flavor
i-Ion Deluge: electric move
l-leech life: not much better

1:Fusion Bolt:if acceptable other wise wild charge
2: Volt Switch: momentum
3: nuzzel:utility

preaty much allows it to become a bit of a status absorber while keeping its niche a little

Dragonite

R-roar of time:special stab
a-acid armor:defensive boost
g-Gravity: g move
o-oder Sleuth: not much in o
n-night daze: good special stab
i-ingrain: I move
t-tail glow: special boosting should be fun

1:parting shot: momentum
2:Sucker punch: stab priority
3:Knock off: physical stab

All the sudden it is really versatile with a strong special boosting move, and a stab priority move. now to explain why giving it tail glow is not broken, it has lower bulk and speed than manaphy and the same Special attack- it is also has four times weak to fairy, and lost multi scale to help it set up.

get on my level

Encore, Rapid Spin, Recover, Outrage, Taunt, Head Smash, Overheat, Roar
+ Flare Blitz/Will-O-Wisp/Flame Charge

Basically I chose to give Ferrothorn some nice support moves including Encore, Rapid Spin, Roar, WoW, and Taunt, while still allowing it to perform an offensive role as well with Flare Blitz, Head Smash, and Outrage being high powered moves that can pack a punch!


Magnet Bomb
+ Nuzzle/Parabolic Charge/Discharge

Magnet Bomb cuz its and egg. The other three are pretty cool supporting moves, with either a neat Para chance (Discharge), 100% para chance (Nuzzle), and a bit of recovery that could be OK on NP sets (Parabolic Charge) but is mostly niche.


Yawn, Aqua Jet, Refresh, Aerial Ace, Dragon Rush, Octazooka
+ Drill Run/Mud Slap/Sand Attack

Some cool moves that allow for a bulky offensive set and a Flying move that doesn't take 2 turns (and I took away its Flying typing lel).


Close Combat, Autotomize, Doom Desire, Recover, Icicle Crash, Low Kick
+ Thunderbolt/Volt Switch/Thunder Wave

Some cool moves to use for pivoting and coverage, as well as being able to pull off a support role through Doom Desire shuffling, status spreading, and access to reliable recovery.


Razor Shell, Attack Order, Gunk Shot, Ominous Wind, Needle Arm, Ice Shard, Topsy Turvy
+ Nasty Plot/Dark Pulse/Knock Off

Dragonite gets ALL the coverage. It also has options for a cool special set or a support set (e.g. ParaShuffler with TWave/Roost/Dragon Tail/Topsy Turvy).

I'm glad to see all the great posts guys, keep it up n_n
 
Interesting thread nape :) I like.
Glad to see my idea of getting rapid spin on ferrothorn has taken shape lol. Is this for all 721 pokes? Or OU only?

Crobat
Rock typing
O - Oblivion Wing
B - Belly Drum
A - Acrobatics

hidden ability is
Tough Claws

Haven't got enough letter a for a forth move, unless I can use the C for Close Combat :)
Altho no STAB's unless it keeps the flying typing and drops poison type
 
Are things like Wonder Guard Glameow, No Guard Walrein, Huge Power Rapidash, Pure Power Garchomp, Shadow Tag Reuniclus, Fur Coat Wigglytuff and Aerilate Rayquaza supposed to be allowed, or will they be auto-banned?
