Double Team is BS.

I do think Sand Veil and Snow Cloak should stay, though (moreso the latter, which never did any harm)

Play pokemon conquest and then tell me you're neutral/alright about missing.

On Topic:Idc about evasion clause. Nobody's going to use evasion anyway.

Minimize Blissey gets a move that pads her defenses more than cosmic power would .
Why would you unleash this monstrosity on us?

You could theoretically learn to beat virtually anything. Obviously no guard Machamp will still ruin a minimizing Blissey, and most physical attackers still have a good chance of winning...but you're still taking something that is one of the most powerful walls of the metagame and giving it a tool that gives it a huge leg up over other walls. With a single minimize under its belt, Blissey can do nasty and horrible things without recompense. Super effective STAB choice band close combats from dedicated sweepers can deal with it...but not a lot else.

But the evasion clause argument is really grounds for huge, painful discussions about whether or not chance should play a meaningful factor in fights. It's just not fun to talk about....

If there is an evasion clause, then why not ban all moves with less than 100 accuracy, too?
