Species should have traits instead of being limited to abilities

I understand what tc is saying.
Why is castforms ability wasted on something that the pokemon itslef is supposed to do. Castform is supposed to change with the weather, so what's the point of wasting the ability slot on something its supposed to do naturally?

He's not trolling. But nobody tried to understand what he's talking about ._.

Oh, I understood just fine.

The thing is, something that a Pokemon is "supposed to do" would qualify as an personal ability/innate characteristic, or even "passive ability" by RPG standards.

So by making a previous ability as something that it should do without technically "having it" while replacing it with what he actually considered to be a "true ability", would be like giving it 2 abilities at once, in practical terms.

Besides, by that logic, you could argue that Kyogre/Groudon wouldn't need their abilities since they were "supposed" to do their respective cataclysms, and yet, here we have Politoed/Ninetales...

Also, mralpha543 pretty much said it all in his previous post.

TC has a point. personally, i don't like the ability Levitate. So many pokemon appear to float but don't have the 'ability', whereas many pokemon who need a different ability are stuck with Levitate.
