Here they are as of now:
Venusaur- Chlorophyll
Charizard- Solar Power
Blastoise- Rain Dish
Meganium- Leaf Guard
Typhlosion- Flash Fire
Feraligatr- Sheer Force
Sceptile- Unburden
Blaziken- Speed Boost
Swampert- Damp
Torterra- Shell Armor
Infernape- Iron Fist
Empoleon- Defiant
Serperior- Contrary
Emboar- Reckless
Samurott- Shell Armor

The goal of this game/topic is to rearrange these hidden abilities among the starters so that the average usefulness of all starters is the highest.

Here are the rules:
These abilities must belong to a Grass starter:
Leaf Guard
Chlorophyll

These abilities must belong to a Grass or Fire starter:
Solar Power

These abilities must belong to a Fire starter:
Flash Fire

These abilities must belong to a Water starter:
Damp
Rain Dish

These abilities must belong to a Pokemon that has an association with a shell:
Shell Armor

And go.

As long as Damp is changed so that any move that would OHKO Charizard fails.

Swampert: Swift Swim.
Charizard: Magic Guard (now SR doesn't do anything to him! :D)
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Nope. Damp still just causes Selfdestruct and Explosion to fail.

But Zard loses his main niche and is outclassed by Alakazam.

Venusaur- Chlorophyll
Charizard- Unburden (I like this better here than on Sceptile - Flying Gem + Acrobatics)
Blastoise- Rain Dish

Meganium- Leaf Guard
Typhlosion- Flash Fire
Feraligatr- Defiant (I hate taking away Sheer Force from him, but Defiant removes fear of Intimidate while you dance)

Sceptile- Solar Power (Fast enough to make use of Solar Power)
Blaziken- Reckless (Brave Bird + Flare Blitz makes this decent)
Swampert- Damp (Can't really move this off him...)

Torterra- Contrary (Contrary Leaf Storms & Superpowers make this more threatening than Serperior)
Infernape- Iron Fist
Empoleon- Shell Armor (2 Shell Armors and only 4 pokes with shell....)

Serperior- Sheer Force (Keeps Serperior usable)
Emboar- Speed Boost (I like the idea of the pig speeding up as the battle goes on)
Samurott- Shell Armor (Too many shells)
