Let's say a Pokemon is put to sleep. When a Pokemon is attacked while asleep, the base damage for a move is doubled. This would mean that STAB would be doubled as well. Keeping everything else the same, would you support this move?

This would make the game a lot more interesting. However, it would make the metagame centralized around sleep.

Opinions?

I think that sleep is bad enough as it is (Gen 5 mechanics), so no.

At worst I'd support reduced evasion.

I support this:
A sleeping Pokemon wakes up immediately if it gets hit by a more with 100BP or more.
But Sleeping Pokemon now have their evasion reduced by 2 levels.

Only thing I'd want to change about sleep is getting hit by a physical move raises the chance of that Pokemon waking up.

That would make sense. But some strong special moves should work. Hell, Hyper Voice should wake up an sleeping Pokemon.

This just makes Sleep even more broken.

Hell, the new Sleep mechanics in Gen 5 already made Smogon consider banning it a few years back.

If you take damage while asleep you should wake up, period.

Rest becomes broken.
