Lol, I love you Gamefreak. Thanks to Pokemon Amie pokemon that loves its trainer a lot will get boosts like higher Dodge, and Crit Rate(Absol will love this). I wonder how Smogon, and metagame will react to this.

Me: "Noivern, dodge that attack!"

*Noivern dodges*

Opponent: "Hax!"

*rage quits*

Maybe Smogon will only let Pokemon that hate you in their metagame?

Overall I like it. Gives weaker mon's a chance (yay Pikachu).

I do see it being something I like only for the benefit of myself though, hating it when my opponent uses it(double team rotom).

I can't believe people think it'll give weaker Pokemon a chance.


Slower more fragile Pokemon will still be crap. All this means is now BULKY, tough ass tier Pokemon, are going to have a field day dodging and killing everything in their way or has a chance to check their balance issue.

Don't even look at Ubers.

How does this give weaker Pokemon a chance if the stronger Pokemon get the same advantages?

Meh. Then again this is likely because I don't care about the "meta game", either.

If it applies to the CPU, you can expect more hax.

It better not, or I'll cry. (Seriously I've seen AI critical hit me 10+ times in a row outside of battle tower often)

Usually the weaker pokemon are one-shotted, but now they can potentially avoid attacks al-together giving them a small chance to do stuff, even if the other side can do that too.

Another thing, usually the weaker pokemon have more evasion or critical moves like ratata with focus energy or jiggly puff with minimize.

Huh, I never thought of that. That could have some pretty hilarious results.
