What the hell does gamefreak expect us to do with this lv100 event Dialga?

How is it useless?


-already level 100 no fun in raising it
- 9 times out of 10 the damn things have crappy IV's
-You usually can't change the nature by soft resetting on events like this (BRB; docile nature, lol)
-EV's already distributed.


Only the first point is valid.

Legendaries are so boring now and so easy to get. They've lost their "rare" value. It's so easy nowadays to get even a Genesect or Celebi

ewww Pressure


Pressure > Telepathy


How so?

I've never played and uber battle, but i'm pretty sure most battles end with pokemon dying in 2-3 hits and pretty much eveyrone has the ability to max out PP on their moves.
telepathy would be a god send if you wanted to spam blizzard or eq or surf.

Ever heard of a choice item? If you run out of PP while holding one of them, you are basically forced to switch out.

too much stupid after my initial post

- to reiterate, Pressure sucks unless you run a PP stall set (and not having a recovery move better than Rest makes PP stalling a minor side strategy at best)
- spamming Blizzard has nothing to do with Telepathy since Blizzard does not hit your teammate and Telepathy only protects against damage from a teammate's attack
- Choice item users are going to switch out often anyway and it's far more likely they are forced out because their locked-in attack is resisted by the opposing Pokemon than because they run out of PP

would you rather have an ability that lowers the enemy PP by 2 at least doing something or an ability, that in singles, may as well just say "This pokemon has no ability"

There is one possible benefit to having Telepathy over Pressure - if sent out at the start against opposing Pokémon that has an ability that reveals itself, neither player will be able to determine which one is faster. This could be a negative thing though.

These do have a benefit over 4th gen Pressure ones - there are certain nature/IV combinations that aren't possible, such as Quiet 31/31/31/31/31/0, or ANY mixed nature with all 31s.

Either a lot of people don't realize that the faster Pokemon shows its ability message before a slower Pokemon or they are too careless to notice. I fried a bunch of Scarf Genesects with my Scarf Pressure Mewtwo in the Global Showdown in lead matchups - even though I expected some of them to switch after realizing Mewtwo was faster, none ever did.
