We already have that. Its called Magic Bounce, and Magic Guard.

KOing a stealth rock user by a simple ability is actually too much. That's the reason why GF hasn't implemented such a game-breaking ability and instead gave us Magic Bounce and Magic Guard...

Maybe suggesting an item that prevents indirect damage would be the better idea.

Trap Sense: Avoids entry hazards, Arena Trap and only takes one round of damage from bind/firespin/etc.

Obviously, it'd be a broken-ass legendary ability.

It should be on a Bug/Flying-type instead.

That's a little too much.


It's not enough, Stealth Rock has become so over centralised to the point where 9.5/10 teams on Showdown for example have it and most people have to carry a Rapid Spinner to deal with it.


I'm that jerk who uses Stealth Rock on my mono-Ghost team (Golurk!) just to annoy you by making your Rapid Spinner useless. Well, unless you carry Foresight, but who does that?

Its ok, they are probably thanking you for bringing a team that is all pursuit bait.

There should be, seeing as how Stealth Rock is become quite an overpowered move.

How many people run Pursuit? You see it sometimes, sure, but not enough to make a Ghost team useless. And I rarely need to switch anyway. My Ghost team wins probably 3 out of 4 games, so I dont really care if people think my team is 'Pursuit bait', because it's still working.

I get it, stealth rock is overpowered now, but at least come up with a serious ability. The ability essentially reads "switch in and OHKO the opposing Pokemon." Keep switching your pokemon out and back in and you win. How about you try again.
