How would you feel if the metagame was balanced for Gen 6

Gamefreak decided to listen to Karen and make it feasible for people to win with their favourites

All final evolutions for Stage 2 and Stage 3 Pokémon, as well as non evolvers, would receive Base Stat totals of 580, with various distributions. Legendaries would be capped at 600.

Thoughts?

I think that's a pretty good idea. If that idea were to be implemented, everyone could use there favorite Pokemon as there main, without minding if it is NU or OU or something.


Also i heard a rumor about a "bond system" that if you train your Pokemon your bond will increase and if your bond is at its maximum it is fully ev/iv trained, and its ready for online battles, but that's only a rumor.

Wouldn't that be more boring than balanced?

That's more boring than balanced.

Stat totals aren't everything. Typing, movepools, abilities and stat distributions will still cause some Pokémon to be OP and others to be useless.

So the only thing achieved there is stats become more boring than they currently are. :S

hmm had not thought about that.

The only thing that happens there is that Smeargle and Mew rule Ubers, while Kyurem-B slips further into obscurity, and poor Flareon wishes he had something to use that ~143 Base Attack with.

Balancing the metagame in this way would still lead to tiers.
They'd just all be different than they are now.

I would play a lot less Pokemon.

I'd love for the metagame to be balanced, but this isn't the way to do it. As stated before, many Pokemon are NU/RU/OU not just because of their stats. Movepools and typing play a huge part in the usefulness of a Pokemon. It would still lead to many Pokemon being unused simply because they have terrible moves/typing/stat distribution, thus creating tiers yet again.
