why is drizzle and swift swim on the same team banned but drought and chlorophyll not?
#2FuneralCakePosted 6/22/2013 3:34:11 PM
Because Drizzle and Swift Swim are actually good together, have Pokemon that are actually threatening, rain boosts Water moves, etc.

Drought and Chlorophyll has... Venusaur?

Many (maybe all, don't remember) Pokémon with chlorophyll are grass types, so a fire attack while sunny would pretty much OHKO most of them.

Kingdra with Swift Swim gets Stab Rain Boosted Hydro Pump.

Venusaur with Chlorophyll get Sun boosted HP Fire.

Which one is more broken?

I'm sure alot of pokemon with chlorophyll can be used properly with a skilled . Plus hail and sandstorm have some of their abilities banned (Sand veil and snow cloak) just seems like they're making excuses for other weather.

Also fire moves increase by 50% while water moves get decreased by 50&

thunder and hurricane have 50% accuracy

growth is the same boost as swords dance and nasty plot in one!

Moonlight, morning sun and synethsis heal 3/4 max health.

Just seems like Sun and Rain are equals?

It's because Pokemon with Swift Swim are almost all entirely Water Pokemon, and the result is basically a boost to speed AND STAB, while no Chlorophyll Pokemon has Fire STAB. The combination with the former is just too strong and centralizing.

Rain boost + Water STAB + double speed

vs.

Enhanced fire weakness + double speed + Solarbeam only takes 1 turn

but solarbeam isn't very good most of the time as ttar is so prevalent
