If they didn't have STAB bonuses, barely any Pokemon would use attacks of their own type. Adaptability would be downgraded, Porygon-Z just doesn't hit as hard, and who knows what would happen to Heracross? Nothing good can really come from lack of STAB bonuses.
Still waiting for Zoroark to be announced in the new Super Smash Bros. Wii U.

No STAB. Everyone who can't use Bolt/Beam/Thrower becomes useless really as a special attacker.

Eh, you could still rock Shadow ball and focus miss together, or dragon pulse/fire move for the near perfect coverage, ya?

Anyway, pretty much all pokemon but Shedinja artificially become bulkier because certain attackers needed that extra 50% power to net efficient kills or put pressure on them.

Isn't it pretty much defensive pokemon become better while offensive pokemon become worse.

Shinji X Asuka is the most sacred pairing in all of anime. That is an unnegotiable fact.
