Pokemon X/Y Metagame Discussion Topic: Everything is going to be Pokay Edition

#1Hinoken86Posted 1/15/2013 1:20:46 AM
Hello everyone and welcome! I am an avid lurker of the pokemon boards who enjoys theorycrafting. Here today I would like to take the time to get a friendly metagame discussion started reguarding the upcoming sixth generation games and some of the changes/improvments we would like to see to make it more competitive

Before we begin let us agree to the following:
-This topic is not has nothing to do with hacking, hacking discussion is off topic.
- Trolling/Flaming/Being close minded are bad for theorycrafting and creative discussion so lets keep this to a minimum. (Friendly jabs and sarcasm are totally acceptable! This is competitive pokemon afterall!)
- No metagame is greater than another: Tiered styled rulesets aswell as VGC standards are both equally valid ways to enjoy competitive play. Simply state which one your discussion points to if relevent.

With that said lets get started, I'd like to propose we start with talk about weather, its effect on the game and how it can be improved.

Personally I find weather teams to be fun, big fan of sun teams. But Ithink they could use adjustments to make the meta more fascinating.

Starting with changing the auto weather abilities. If the abilities set up "Max Duration" weather (as if the poke used a weather move with coresponding hold item) instead of perma weather, I think we could see an exciting shift in battle strategy. I would also like to see a wider slection of pokemon with the abilities.

Perhaps we could also see an ability intoduced that strait out nullifies weather when the poke is brought in. Not like Air lock or cloud nine that are only effetive if that pokemon stays in play. Or even change cloud nine to do this instead of having 2 of the same ability with different names

So, lets hear everyones thoughts! Don't be afraid to throw out wild ideas thats how some of the best discussion starts!

Hopefully this doesn't get modded for being off topic. Sup bruh i never noticed you in any of the previous boards' metagame topics

anyway i wonder if keldeo and tornadus-t will remain OU. also hopefully weather is less pronounced in XYZ. i'd be sick of two straight gens of weather wards

I'm interested in seeing what new moves this gen is going to bring us, what pokemon are going to get these new moves, and how that's going to effect the metagame.

Wouldn't it be funny if Magnezone and Probopass got an entry hazard that paralyzes any Pokemon except for electric/ground pokemon? Oh and you can only get rid of it if a grounded electric pokemon switches in and absorbs them or some pokemon performs a rapid spin. However it takes two turns to set up. One layer won't do anything on its own. :P

they can easily solve weather wars by making weather abilities last finite amount instead of infinite until changed.

Yeah. I have spent a long time simply lurking the various meta threads over the years, decided that i would like to try and contribute to this gen and hopefully promote a more positive attitude towards the competitive scene. I'm not much of a battler but I absolutly adore theorycrafting, I plan to try and improve both this time around!

So what part of weather do you dislike that could be changed? Or what other type of play would you like to see become more pronounced to counter it?

Edit: better add quote. Forgot how fast topics can move.
