Day 43 and today's ability is Heavy Metal. A nice name for an ability but in terms of actual use...not so much.

Heavy Metal: "The user's weight is doubled. This increases the user's base power of Heavy Slam and Heat Crash, increases the damage taken from the opponent's Low Kick and Grass Knot, and also lowers the damage taken from the opponent's Heavy Slam and Heat Crash due to these moves being calculated by the target's weight."

A solid (lol) 1. Among the things that can learn it, the gap between this abilities' usefulness and the other ones that they can have are universes apart. Even if this move was wider spread, I'd probably never consider it, especially considering it has just as many negatives as positives... too bad it has such a sick name.

Everything in life is a battle. Even peace itself is a battle to maintain it.

Not really all that useful in general, though Aggron can use it to some degree by having its STAB Heavy Slam almost always at full power.

I reserve 1 and 2s for abilities that are harmful or completely useless. Heavy Metal has a small use in Aggron's heavy slam. For that it earns a 3.

4/10, 3 points on the badassness of the name alone.

It's okay if you need weight for something or if your other Ability is Truant or Slow Start...
I'll give it a 4 because I'm in a good mood.
