In this metagame the typing of the move in the first slot is changed to the primary typing of the mon. If the mon has a secondary type, the typing of the move in the second slot is changed to the secondary typing of the mon. All other aspects of the move (power, accuracy, secondary effects, etc.) remain the same, allowing mons to run dangerous new STAB moves

- Sludge Bomb
- Nasty Plot
Thundurus-T has extremely dangerous attacking stats, but has always lacked Flying-STAB to use it with. No more. On this set, Sludge Bomb becomes an Electric-Type attack and still carries it's handy 30% poison chance, while Thunderbolt finally gives it the Flying-STAB it has always longed for.

Q: How do I change the typing of my moves?
A: This will be done automatically, just put the move in your first or second slot to change accordingly.
Q: What are "restricted moves"?
A: These are moves that would be overpowered if they were type changed, but are not overpowered in their standard form. As a result, they are allowed, but only in move slots that let keep default typing (2-4 for single typed mons, 3rd and 4th for dual typed).
Q: What if a mon changes type during battle?
A: The typing of your moves will change as well! Whether it's by your own action like Libero, or your opponent hits you with Soak, your move types will change according to the rules of the meta.
Q: What about Forest's Curse and Trick-or-Treat adding a third type?
A: Third types are not considered for move type changes.
Q: How do abilities that change the typing of the move (like Pixilate) work?
A: If a move is type changed to be normal type, it will be affected by Pixilate.
Q: What about moves that cannot be type-changed, like Weather Ball and Multi-Attack?
A: These moves are still unchangable. Weather Ball in the first slot would always be Normal if no weather, or the correct typing for the weather it is currently in.
Q: Where is this metagame playable?
A: It can be played on https://rom.psim.us/ as an actual format, including restricted moves and teambuilder! Huge shout out to urkerab to making that happen.
It can also be played on main as a challenge-only format! Rejoice!
