Would you want the base stats and moves of Pokemon to be changed for balance?

For example, less Pokemon are able to learn Stealth Rock (transferring from previous games would delete it). (Although what really needs to happen is a Drizzle and Sandstream nerf, and Stealth Rock itself being nerfed).

(For Example) Gardevoir would have its base Speed raised to 100 (from 80).

The goal being to expand the number of Pokemon that are considered competitively viable and increase the amount of tactics that can be used.

Perhaps some Pokemon, should have their stats reduced, although that is a much touchier subject.

Yes, but leave the major (BST of 680+) Legendaries alone.
I would love to see Gardevoir get a little boost like that. She's in my list of favorites (not for the same reasons that some other GameFAQs users have >_>).

I agree, Legendaries are supposed to be stronger then normal Pokemon, it's what makes them Legendaries, just make sure there are optional online rules that forbids their usage in battles.

I wouldn't mind seeing some changes. It would be a lot of extra work for GameFreak though, if they wanted to rebalance everybody except for legendaries.

This goes back into my 'Game Freak is afraid of retcons and it's a bad thing' argument. Would it be nice if they rebalanced Pokemon in light of the power creep from the past two generations? Yes. Will they? Probably not, no. More Pokemon will be given Quiver Dance or Shell Smash and they'll call it a day.

I don't think it's in question that Game Freak is afraid of changing a formula that still increases in sales every release, despite its (numerous) problems.

It would be nice if they went as far as to give Quiver Dance and Shell Smash to a ton of non competitively viable Pokemon, which I already doubt.
