MERGEMONS
Have you ever wondered what the metagame would be like if every Pokemon didn't just have its own movepool? Did you ever want to know what it would become if Pokemon got the moves of those near it in the Pokedex?

Well, now you can find out.

Rules
  • All Pokemon gain the movepool of the previous and next fully evolved Pokemon, according to the Pokedex. The list of specific merges can be found in this link.
  • NFEs get the moves of their full evos. That means Chansey gets Miltank's moves and Raikou's moves (like Blissey), for example.
  • For balancing reasons, Pokemon that receive Sketch from merges only receive it once. (This only applies to Stantler, Tyrogue, and Hitmontop.)
  • All move illegalities are fixed... as long as the moves are acquirable from R/S/E onward. (Lovely Kiss Nidoking, for example, is not allowed, but Fake Out + Extreme Speed Raichu is perfectly fine.)
  • This meta is based off of OU, and as such utilizes standard OU clauses and the standard OU banlist.
  • Shell Smash cannot be merged. It can only be used by its original users.
Strategy
Mergemons gives multitudes of options to offense, stall, and balance alike, although I have a feeling that offense will reign supreme. Still, there's something for everyone.

Q&A

Q:
But you forgot (insert Pokemon here) in the threatlist!
A: Well, let me know why you consider that Pokemon a notable threat in Mergemons, and I'll put them in.

Q: How can I play this metagame?
A: You can play it anywhere on Pokemon Showdown with the Custom Game option. I usually hang out in the Other Metas room on the main server.
Edit: RIP Leader's Choice, was fun while it lasted

Yeah, and don't forget about move illegalities being cleared up so it can run Soft-Boiled with Unaware. Clefable will be a huge staple. Although one does question whether it has enough bulk to take on the ridiculous threats. Sure, it beats Shell Smash Heracross, but SS Scizor and Gengar still blow right by it with their STABs. (Although Scizor might not have room for Bullet Punch, what with EQ and Rock Blast and Pin Missile and Fell Stinger and all those new toys.)

guys have we mentioned how primarina now gets liquid voice boosted boomburst thanks to toucannon i mean until liquid voice gets released
 

sin(pi)

lucky n bad
#7
pls excuse my hype
Shed gets Roar and Yawn to force even more switches, as well as some fighting type coverage which is cute, I guess.
Reading through the OP:
Taunt + Webs + Tspikes Crobat
SHELL SMASH MEGA HERACROSS
SHELL SMASH + PIN MISSILE/FELL STINGER MEGA SCIZOR
QUIVER DANCE MEGA GARDEVOIR
DRAGON DANCE + ROOST MEGA METAGROSS
V-CREATE + OVERHEAT SERPERIOR (with plenty of coverage)
Webs + SR + Spikes Galvantula
Durant + Baton Pass Dugtrio :')
QUIVER DANCE HYDREIGON
Roost Lando-T
SWORDS DANCE + RP KYUB LOL
Keldeo with infinite coverage
Chesnaught is, I think, the best BellySpeeder
Roost + HB Zygarde oh MAN
Boomburst Liquid Voice Primarina (it's something, I guess?)
Recover Mudsdale
Recover Type:Null (and CMPass)

...so yeah. This looks fun, but I don't think stall is viable in the face of SD Kyub and Shell Smash MHera?
 
#8

Except for the fact that Liquid Voice doesn't boost damage.
Still cool for Specs sets once it's released though, as it's more powerful and accurate than Hydro Pump.

Hype for Bulk Up Pheromosa . MUSCLE !

hey, some stall good a nice addition too though, while not as good as offensive buffs, but i think that's a plenty.

Leech Seed Quaggy
Roost Zygarde
Slack Off Empoleon
Recover M-Aggron / Roost M-Steelix (are they released?)
Recover T-Tar
"usable" Guzzlord
Leech Seed Fini
"almost" unbreakable Mudsdale
Recover Poliwrath
Synthesis Bewear
Wisp Zapdos
Slack off Drapion

and idk many more, but i don't think all that good.

And WTF SYNTHESIS + GROWTH ZARD-Y??

Do I really need to calc Skarmory, Celesteela, Ferrothorn, or Forretress?
The only real problems with mixed Growth Zard Y are that it gets completely neutered when sun runs out or another weather switches in, it doesn't last very long, and base 100 Speed isn't that much. Still, it's a godly wallbreaker.

nah this is my first time hearing mergemons, i think it's a cool concept. and are Sleep Powder Dugtrio allowed? (Trap + Sleep)
 
#13
This is a really cool metagame concept. First of all, Lapras could already learn Dragon Dance from an egg move (but not Earthquake, for some asasine reason).
Next of all, notable things that might have gone under a few people's radar..

- Xurkitree gets Quiver Dance. STOP THE PRESSES.
- Dragonite gets access to pretty much every move. It's even more versatile than before!
- Meganium also gets access to pretty much every move. I think that's enough to make it a threat.
(oh hi, Tail Glow Darkrai, how does it feel that the OU council might feel you might be even remotely balanced???)
- Typhlosion finally has a good... physical boosting move. But more importantly, good coverage.
- Feraligatr not only gets Flare Blitz, but is now capable of Trick nonsense.
- Spiritomb gets both Chatter and reliable recovery. Now it really is a devil spawn. (Also gets Earth Power, Flamethrower, and Surf for coverage)
- Why does Serperior get V-Create? This is Sketchmons, except far nastier.
- QUIVER DANCE LYCANROK! .....In all seriousness, Lycanroc gets some pretty cool things, including Stun Spore and U-turn.
- Empoleon also gets reliable recovery.
- ...Does Stantler and Hitmontop get basically everything? If so, that's terrifying. If not, they can still pretend to be in sketchmons.
- Jirachi... gets an absolute goldmine of moves between Rayquaza and Deoxys. Continue hiding the children...
- Aegislash gets... Wish. And some coverage. Much better than nothing, but now you really have 4MSS now.
- Gosliopod gets recovery. Might be good or pointless, depending on how Emergency Exit works.

I... kind of overlooked that for a bit. I changed the OP to reflect that Stantler, Tyrogue, and Hitmontop are basically in Sketchmons (with bonuses: Stantler gets Donphan's moves, Hitmontop gets Miltank's moves, and Tyrogue gets Miltank, Marowak, and Weezing's moves from its evolutions).

*looks at ultra beasts... drools*

I know it's a little early to ask, and I will really enjoy this current meta. But will there ever be a way to randomly battle someone with this format? Or do I have to challenge a particular person to a custom match?
 
#16
I hope that Pokemon have made peace with Arceus because they'll want to be on its good side after this monster destroys them.

- Stored Power
- Focus Blast/Dazzling Gleam
- Dark Pulse/Earth Power
- Conversion

Z-Conversions into Psychic type and get a 120 base power attack boosted by Adaptability or a 140 base power STAB move coming off of a potential +2 Special Attack stat of 135. You need a Chansey for this guy (which you'll probably want to be running anyways, but keep it healthy.) Skarmory can take a hit thanks to Sturdy and use Whirlwind, but if you have Rocks on the field then you can say goodbye to that as well.

+2 252 SpA Porygon-Z Focus Blast vs. 252 HP / 0 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 344-406 (48.8 - 57.6%) -- 96.1% chance to 2HKO+2 252 SpA Porygon-Z Focus Blast vs. 4 HP / 252 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 274-324 (42.6 - 50.4%) -- 1.2% chance to 2HKO

Speaking of Stored Power, how's this set looking to everyone? Props to Zephyr Dragon Lord for directing my attention to Serperior.



Serperior @ Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Contrary
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Substitute
- Leaf Storm
- Stored Power/V-Create/Synthesis/Taunt
- V-Create/Synthesis/Taunt

(I don't actually know what moveset, EV spread, nature or item would best suit this set so it's up for experimentation. I just want to highlight that Serperior gets V-Create and Stored Power.)
4 EVs in Special Defense are to ensure that Porygon-Z does not get the Special Attack Download boost. Leaf Storm is your main move to spam. Stored Power is eventually going to be a 140 BP coverage move that hits things that quad-resist Grass like Volcarona (although I doubt that you'll get to +6, because who in their right mind keeps anything that isn't Chansey or a quad-resist in on Serperior?) V-Create boosts your defensive stats and Speed while also buffing Stored Power's base power. Synthesis is to provide reliable recovery and it also makes sure Serperior doesn't mind the Life Orb recoil as much. Taunt is to prevent things from healing with Roost or SoftBoiled, although it's mainly there so you can beat Chansey 1v1.

+6 252 SpA Serperior Leaf Storm vs. 4 HP / 252 SpD Eviolite Chansey: 300-354 (46.7 - 55.1%) -- 68.8% chance to 2HKO
+6 252 SpA Serperior Stored Power (140 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Volcarona: 404-476 (129.9 - 153%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+6 252 SpA Serperior Stored Power (140 BP) vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Charizard-Mega-Y: 374-440 (125.9 - 148.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO

I don't know what other calcs people want to see, so let me know and I'll add them in.

Serperior suffers from severe 4MSS, though.

edit: lol kyub still doesnt get physical ice stab

edit #2: forgot about overheat on serp lol mb

If you wanna use V-create Setperior you would probably be better off using Superpower / Leaf Blade (unfortunatelly it doesn't get Powet Whip). Last move either Synthesis or Bolt Strike. Doesn't have the immediate power of Leaf Storm / Overheat Serperior but makes better use of it's decent bulk and it's harder to revenge kill.

He's returned! :mad:

Lots and lots of new toys this gen...let's take a look.


Tapu Koko @ Life Orb / Choice Specs
Ability: Electric Surge
EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Moonblast
- U-turn / Calm Mind
- Shadow Ball / Focus Blast

This set only even touches Tapu Lele's movepool. Tapu Koko should be straight up ridiculous in this meta. It's got Shadow Ball, Earthquake and Stone Edge to whack Alolan Marowak, Dragon Dance, Swords Dance and Belly Drum for new sweeping options (Wild Charge for only physical STAB isn't good for B Drum though), slightly better Fairy STAB, and Focus Blast for additional Ferrothorn ammo. Expect this to be dominant.


Tapu Lele @ Life Orb
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Agility
- Psyshock / Psychic
- Moonblast
- Shadow Ball / Focus Blast / Thunderbolt / HP Fire

Agility sweeper invulnerable to priority for 5 turns with boosted Psychic attacks and 130 base SpA? Yikes.


Decidueye @ Leftovers / Colbur Berry
Ability: Overgrow
EVs: 252 HP / 32 Def / 216 SpD / 8 Spe
Careful Nature
- Roost
- Spirit Shackle
- Will-o-Wisp
- Defog / U-turn / Substitute / Taunt

While not as metagame defining as Tapus, Decidueye finally gets the benefit other Ghosts have of being able to burn Pursuit users like Scizor, Bisharp and Weavile. Wisp just pairs well with Spirit Shackle better than Toxic overall and gives Decidueye some more persistence against Physical attackers. In combination with Taunt or Sub, it can stallbreak quite well.

Other Decidueye highlights are Bulk Up pass from Incineroar and Scald/Steam Eruption from Volcanion. Offensive sets are likely outclassed by bigger threats in this meta, but access to Fire Blast, Focus Blast and Steam Eruption can be good options for a possible Choice Specs set.


Primarina @ Leftovers / Choice Specs
Ability: Torrent / Liquid Voice
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost / U-turn
- Scald / Boomburst
- Moonblast
- Fire Blast / Focus Blast / Encore / Roar / Will-o-Wisp

The biggest things to talk about here probably have to be recovery from Toucannon and Water-type Boomburst. Incineroar also provides pretty awesome Fire- and Fighting-type special coverage. U-turn, Roar, Wisp and maybe Liquid Voice Body Slam are good new utility options that it gets. Nasty Plot also seems like it might be a useful wallbreaking and sweeping options, especially against slower teams.

Mantine @ Leftovers
Ability: Water Absorb
EVs: 244 HP / 248 Def / 16 SpD
Calm Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Roost
- Stealth Rock / Spikes / Defog
- Rapid Spin / Defog / Freeze-Dry / Whirlwind / Taunt
- Scald

This thing really has become Skarmory 2.0. It's got to be one of the most godlike utility Pokemon in Mergemons now with access to hazards and phazing.

How do the mons at the very beginning / end of the dex work? Do they share moves?

How should mons with multiple evolutions work
You said "NFEs get the moves of their full evos. That means Chansey gets Miltank's moves and Raikou's moves (like Blissey), for example."
Presumably this means Eevee gets all of its evos moves... Does it keep them when it evolves? What about the Hitmons? So basically... Does Hitmontop get the moves of Hitmonlee and Hitmonchan through Tyrogue?

Yanmega @ Life Orb / Focus Sash
Ability: Speed Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Nasty Plot
- Air Slash
- Aura Sphere
- Fire Blast / Protect / Bug Buzz

Yanmega gets Nasty Plot and great coverage from Togekiss, turning it into a deadly sweeper very quickly. It also gets Stored Power if you think you can get a bunch of boosts to make it into a wallbreaker as well.

Escavalier @ Leftovers
Ability: Overcoat
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 SpD
Careful Nature
- Nuzzle / Spore
- U-turn
- Knock Off
- Roost

Escavalier gets utility up the wazoo. Two types of status, recovery, and pivoting. All our little armor bug thing that zooms around at high speeds ever wanted. Besides a really good ability and priority, but you can't get everything.

UNRELEASED but still fabulous (Ampharos-Mega) @ Ampharosite
Ability: Mold Breaker
EVs: 248 HP / 252 Def / 8 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Calm Mind
- Roost
- Thunderbolt
- Dragon Pulse

THIS IS UNRELEASED DON'T TRY TO RUN IT YET. Okay Ampharos is bulky and stronk and now gets Calm Mind and recovery, allowing it to run a bulky calm mind set. Mold Breaker lets it ignore unaware, and running both of its STABs allows it to hit both of the common Unaware walls.

Still no physical Ice STAB (Kyurem-Black) @ Leftovers / Life Orb
Ability: Teravolt
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Bulk Up / Swords Dance
- Roost
- Dragon Claw
- Earthquake / Taunt

Earthquake is a move Kyurem-B has wanted for ages, and good setup is another thing. It also gets taunt to make a stallbreaking set very possible, especially with Teravolt. Any set it could run before Kyurem-B can run now, just with better coverage (ie Earthquake is better than Earth Power). Taunt, Swords Dance, and Bulk Up are nice.

Keldeo @ Choice Specs / Choice Scarf
Ability: Justified
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Secret Sword
- Hydro Pump
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt

Keldeo gets BoltBeam coverage to hit basically all of its former checks such as Gyarados, Azumarill, Amoonguss, and Mega Venusaur. I would suggest Psyshock for Chansey but guess what, Keldeo is already the ultimate fu to Chansey.

Zygarde @ Leftovers
Ability: Aura Break
EVs: 188 HP / 252 Atk / 68 Spe
Adamant Nature
- Roost
- Dragon Dance
- Thousand Arrows
- Substitute

This is my favorite Sketchmons set. Thousand Arrows is amazing monocoverage, and Zygarde has the bulk to set up a couple Dragon Dances and from there very few things can stop its sweep. Maybe pair it with Escavalier to get a pivot in on a sleeping mon?

Mudsdale @ Leftovers
Ability: Stamina
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Atk / 252 Def
Impish Nature
- Recover
- Earthquake
- Roar
- Rock Slide
Recovery... something that can make a failure into a legend. Stamina was really hyped p prior to gen 7 coming out but Mudsdale has kind of been a disappointment. Will it shine here? Maybe.

I hate Focus Miss (Gengar) @ Life Orb
Ability: Cursed Body SMH LEVITATE WHERE
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Shell Smash
- Shadow Ball
- Dazzling Gleam
- Sludge Bomb / Ice Beam

Shell Smash is the only thing you need to see on this set to be quite honest. What else even matters, when you have a fricking 130 spa 110 speed ghost type with nice coverage and SHELL SMASH? Can we just ban Shell Smash from being inherited? Pretty please?

Hydreigon @ Life Orb
Ability: Levitate
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Quiver Dance
- Dark Pulse
- Dragon Pulse / Focus Blast
- Flash Cannon / Fire Blast / Roost / Focus Blast

Hydreigon gets Quiver Dance. Quiver Dance fixes its speed problems, while boosting its insane attack power higher. Pick your coverage, any coverage.

Blastoise-Mega @ Blastoisinite
Ability: Mega Launcher
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SpA
Bold Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Scald
- Quiver Dance
- Roost
- Ice Beam

Bulky set up Blastoise. It always wanted recovery, now it gets it. Quiver Dance is also very nice. Scald lets it burn to make up for the fact that its not boosting its defense. Try breaking this with your shell Mega Heracross and Gengar! Oh.... wait...

Azumarill @ Life Orb / Lum Berry
Ability: Huge Power
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpD
Adamant Nature
- Swords Dance
- Aqua Jet
- Play Rough
- Earthquake

Azumarill gets Swords Dance and Earthquake. Earthquake gives it perfect neutral coverage with Play Rough, and Swords Dance gives it a safer way to boost that can be done more than once per match.

Tapu Lele @ Choice Specs
Ability: Psychic Surge
EVs: 248 HP / 252 SpA / 8 SpD
Modest Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Volt Switch
- Psychic
- Moonblast
- Focus Blast
The addition of Volt Switch lets Tapu Lele set Psychic Terrain then pivot to a fas sweeper of some sort who doesn't like priority. One suggestion made was Tail Glow Pheromosa.
[16:44:38] vsomani2: I talked about that
[16:44:42] vsomani2: like volt switch lele
[16:44:48] vsomani2: to tg sash phero


EDIT: A replay between me and Momblast which brought up 2 things
1) Shuckle is cancer
2) Why are the Alola formes numbered the way they are? Not that I want you to change it and destroy my memey Raticate-Alola set

Wow, interesting meta, suddenly lots of stuff just becomes just viable, well some other things I noticed which aren't that common(mostly offensive ones)

  • Salazzle now gets Focus Blast, basically giveing it pretty decent coverage and should be good with 117 speed and nasty plot i guess.
  • Duggy gets sleep powder ( Do I see a potential ban with trapping and sleep moves, Yes I do )
  • Gengar gets shell-smash :o, go psychic terrain + gengar
  • Belly Drum + Unburden for hitmonlee :D, gets mach punch too
  • Just for fun : Weezing gets Closecombat, good luck punching without hands
  • Starmie gets Nasty Plot and Baton Pass, just something to consider
  • Mega-Gyarados gets pursuit
  • Vaporeon + Lapras get transform(nice 130 HP)
  • Omastar gets shell smash + stored power, just something to consider. Also kabutops gets shell smash, man rain teams are going to be popular.
  • Zapdos gets hurricane, should be better now
  • Feraligatr is going to enjoy sheer force boosted flare blitz
  • Azumarill gets drain punch, swords dance.
  • Mega Heracross whenever it comes back gets shell smash too.
  • Raikou and Entei get some good coverage
  • Mega-pert gets brave bird for grass types.
  • Mega-garda whenever comes back gets quiver dance.
  • Rachi gets spikes and rocks both
  • Yanmega gets good coverage and nasty plot.
  • Manaphy gets even better coverage in thunderbolt allowing it to have bolt-beam with tail glow.
  • Victini gets Arceus's movepool with V-create lol.
  • Serperior is just bonkers lmao
  • Volcarona gets earth power as cool coverage
  • Also go quiver dance hydreigon
  • Kyurem-black gets crazier with swords dance and fighting coverage.
  • Chesnaught lol - belly drum + espeed
  • Greninja basically gets every move it lacked earlier
  • Diggersby gets flare blitz, okay no more skarmory in life.
  • Dragalge is still slow af, but gets shell smash + adaptibility. So that's that.
  • Yeah give hoopa fire blast and steam eruption.
  • Buzzwole gets U-turn now, should be better.
  • Xurk - bolt-beam + qd and 173 spl attack, cool
  • Magearna gets rocks + Moonlight. Should be a decent setter with slow volt switch.
  • Marowak-A gets wood hammer, alright bulky waters.

Yes, Eevee does get all of its evo's moves. However, the evos only get the moves of the 'mons they're merged with. This was a decision I made to allow 'mons like Chansey to get merged moves, and the split evo thing only affects a certain few 'mons, most of which are unviable.
As for the other question, there's a link in the OP to a Google Doc that displays all the merges.

Sure, let's give Archeops, Heracross, Scizor and Scrafty Shell Smash, what could possibly go wrong lol

That aside, this all sounds nice. Lots of pokemon seem to benefit from getting Set-Up. Eelektross gets Shift Gear (And yes, it's attack is higher then Special Attack), a hell lotta pokes get Shell Smash, Kyurem gets a semi-DD with Rock Polish+SD, or run more bulky sets with Bulk Up.

Also Bulk Up Pheromosa hype
Well, sucks that Eevee is trash against fully evolved mons even when everything on it is +2 because that's a really wide movepool.

Mega Zard Y sounds terrifying. Growth+Syntheses+Drought is gonna wreck a lot.
 
#23
Regarding Pheromosa, there are two possible sets it have now.



Pheromosa @ Focus Sash
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Timid Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- Tail Glow
- Focus Blast
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt / HP Ground

You understand this right? Btw, you liek BoltBeam? No, use HP Ground. Anyway, this is a pure Special one and possibly the worse one of the two because of, well, focus miss. The second one is fairly obvious because it's better.

Pheromosa @ Life Orb
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 SpA / 252 Spe
Naive Nature
IVs: 0 Atk
- High Jump Kick
- U-Turn
- Ice Beam / Ice Punch (idk which is better tbh)
- Earthquake / Stone Edge / Wild Charge / Volt Switch

Screw Bulk Up. It's not meme enough Anyway, this should be fairly obvious. This is basically Sketchmons Pheromosa's standard set, except you can go full Physical if you use Ice Punch. You can go for BoltBeam coverage (you can choose either Physical or Special or mixed), EdgeQuake coverage (not really needed tbh) or a mixture of both. I think Pheromosa has pretty much every coverage it needs here, making it able to hit everything, making it a threat.
 
#25
The fact Xurkitree gets both Ice Beam for BoltBeam coverage and Quiver Dance is just insane

what are walls (Xurkitree) @ Life Orb/Zap Plate/Expert Belt
Ability: Beast Boost
EVs: 252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
Modest/Timid Nature
- Thunderbolt
- Ice Beam
- Quiver Dance
- Flamethrower

Flamethrower is only here for dealing with Zone, and with it only Rotom-Heat walls you, and I'm not sure how relevant it is.
