The problem is that unless it has some unique ability or some move that stands out it will always be a crappier Weavile.
Not really. What's really holding Absol back is just its crappy stats (other than Attack, of course). Super Luck isn't a bad ability at all, and it already has a move that stands out: the strongest priority move in the game with Sucker Punch. An evolution that keeps its Attack stat the same but increases defenses and speed by ~25 each would be spectacular. Maybe not quite OU material, but definitely still something to watch out for. --- My NIDOKING brings all the boys to the yard: http://goo.gl/ExAoe
I'd like to see it as a Dark/Psychic... since it has the ability to foretell natural disasters.
Make it look kind of old looking (shabby, long coat) with like a tribe elder/shaman kind of idea.
That would be awesome, givivg it Phychic as a secondary type. it would remove most of its weaknesses and gain awesome moves. hopefully a balance with its stats too. also C. Hopefully it won't look like Magmortar though. ugh. --- Sandy: If there's not even a modium of kindness in a sadist's heart, then her actions are merely abuse! Soul: That's some disturbing logic.
Magmatar and Rhypherior make we wary of old pokemon getting new evos, but Electrive and Dusknoir look pretty good. I can see Absol becoming bipedal if it gets an evo for some reason. --- The weak give up and the strong move on
