Are people completely ok with how they are currently?(sandstorm, drizzle, drough etc.)
I for one, think they are too good(assuming you have team synergy) because of them being permanent, i know you can overwrite them with another abilities of the same kind, but, even then i still think they should be changed to 5 turns everytime the pokemon enters the field(with the possibility increasing it via items, such as damp rock, magma stone etc.).
I for one used to run to teams based around rain dance and sunny day which i had pokemons with damp rock/magma stone to lead the way, it was really satisfying to play like that, now with Politoad and Ninetails, you send them and you have it for the whole match.
Maybe it just me, but, i do think these abilities bring too much to the field.
There is much to be done. White FC: 3697 9203 9465
