How would you feel about this Weather Condition?

Wind. Activated by the move Breeze and the ability Thorough Blow.

When this is active, all entry hazards will be blown away, Flying Type Moves get a 50% boost, and Fighting Type Moves get a 50% drop.

It decreases accuracy. The heavier a Pokemon, the less accuracy decreases. If a Pokemon is very light, accuracy decreases a lot.

Weather Ball becomes Flying type.

If Breeze is used during Wind, it becomes Strong Wind. Strong Wind can occasionally switch Pokemon out unless they have Strong Roots. The lighter the Pokemon, the higher the chance to be blown out.

There are 3 new abilities.
Thorough Blow - Causes strong wind to ensue after the Pokemon is sent out
Air Strike - Speed and accuracy is increased for those with this ability.
Strong Roots - The Pokemon keeps itself to the ground and is immune to the effects of Wind.

Doesn't sound overly broken.........

Although, Ingrain should have the same effects as Strong Roots
Non-Specific Action Figure has to be in the next Super Smash Bros game. If you agree, send me a message. Number of people who agree: 19 - updated 27 August 2013

It affects accuracy so Smogon will ban it.

Yeah, that's a good idea.

i like it, but also roost should be cancelled too, cant roost if youre being blown away...

also, what about moves like gust and whirl wind? and what was that other one? razor wind?

might as well give twister a boost in the wind too eh or if not a damage boost, then a double flinch chance? i think there are other moves that do similar things ...

lol accuracy drop. stupid ****! no one wants to miss all the time!
I'm a the Luigi master!

The accuracy thing is unnecessary, but the other points are pretty cool. Definitely a way to break the stealth rock overabundance in the metagame.

Also, Ingrain should negate the effect if used.

Yet they still refuse to ban ParaFlinching which arguably is a cheaper thing to do than lower accuracy

I'd be game for that, it'd be interesting to see a new weather type in play :)
