So is every team going to have an Eelektross?

Heaps of moves would be banned/disabled in Sky Battle, like Earthquake.

Not all flying/levitating are weak against Rock. So I probably use those.


But it's safe to assume that a good 2 or three pokes at best would be weak to stealth rock.

If you try to stack your team with all pokes that resist SR you'll probably be forgoing powerful alternatives like Zapdos or Thundurus.

Hopefully the rocks will fall from the sky.

Not banned, just worthless. Ineffective against every pokemon in the mode.

Stealth Rock hits Fliers, though, so it's a tough read. Hopefully they plan on nerfing it to begin with, but if it's not nerfed and left uneffected it'll go from OP in standard meta to broken in sky battles.

I imagine it - As well as moves switching abilities(levitate) - Will likely be ineffective in that setting.

How would that even work? The rocks would just fall to the ground.

Made a thread about this before, and man Sky Battles will probably revolve even more around Stealth Rock. On the plus side Claydol will be used a lot more. Its resistant to rocks, and its one of the only two levitating rapid spinners.

Every team is going to have a Claydol/Cryogonal.
