Is this ability overpowered

Scrappy Kangaskhan would probably jump up a tier.

So basically an ability that acts like Gem item.

Great for revenge killing or getting a nice advantage in battle.


True. But for that I prefer the combination of Technician+ Stab Bullet punch my Scizor has =)

It's balanced but if something with Pursuit/priority attack gets it, it'll definitely feel strong.

This is essentially the same as a Choice Band when used for the first turn...

Give it to things like Technician Ambipom with Choice Scarf + Fakeout or Technician Scizor with Choice Band + Bullet Punch and the metagame might break...


Give an ability to a pokemon with an ability.

OP but certainly becomes predictable, that way you can make switches required.

So maybe OP, can't be sure.

This ability + Normal Gem + Normal type pokemon with high attack stat + Fake Out = opponent's lead pokemon (that isn't Rock/Steel/Ghost) dead before it can do anything.


Would literally not be different from Ambipom with technician.

Eh, allows you to use 1 higher powered attack to start. Scizor, for example, would be able to use X-Scissor or Iron Head. So 80+40+40 vs. 60+30+30.

Ambipom is at least fast enough to use that.
