New ability idea

Paladin: if the ally is targeted by a physical attack, and the ally has a defense lower than wielder, wielder takes damage in place of ally. Similar result with special attacks and special defense.

Good? Bad? So-so? What are your opinions?

What if it came exclusive to a pokemon with base 80 def and sp def and couldn't be skill swapped or traced or role played?

If it was either Physical or Special, it would be less botken. Not both though.

Also, instead of dealing all the damage back at the attacker, it does 1/2 or less.

Kindof like Counter. Kindof

I think "Wielder" means "Pokémon with the Paladin ability", not "Pokémon who did the attacking".

Which doesn't strike me as especially overpowered. Certainly not to the point where the Pokemon would have to have 80 defenses and for it to be non-Skill-Swappable to be usable.

And it'd be worthless outside doubles and triples.

We need an ability like intimidate only it decreases special attack instead.

There should be an ability called Legendarian.
But it should also be rare.
Here is what Legendarian should do:

It should transform the pokemon into a legendary pokemon at will without having to see it.

Or it should let you change the type of your pokemon at will to any type and let you learn any type of move.

That would be an awesome ability.
