i voted truant just for fun



and I know its competitively taboo to use slaking and even if you do they want you to use a 1-turn move so that you can switch out....


but a choice banded giga impact from that monster is hilariously devastating, just sayin

Stall, Gets him attacking every turn but with the lack of priority. Honestly I don't get why they have to have such negative abilities without at least an option that's not so negative. I mean I get most of these Pokemon are strong. But I feel like there are other Pokemon just as strong if not stronger that go unchecked.

slaking has 670 bst and is non-legendary, it doesn't deserve a non-awful ability. esp. not its mega form.

Have you SEEN its base stats and movepool?


Higher attack than Groudon, Rayquaza, and Zekrom, with almost as much HP as Snorlax and great coverage moves with a base 100 speed


Gamefreak actually did something right with both him and regigigas. id rather it be nearly unusable than rampant

I think normalize might be the best compromise to letting him attack more. Just make everything a normal type move. His stats are too good if you give him an ability without a drawback and he would guaranteed be uber bound.

Normalize. He can be rendered offense-less with a Ghost, or some other types that resist Normal attacks. That being said, he would still fare well considering the great base stats.

Honestly, even Normalize would be way too good. Something with that much power would mandate the use of Ghosts on every team. Stall is iffy, but really, it should keep Truant, especially if we're assuming the proposed Megalution gets increased Attack.

Normalize still grants STAB, correct?

As above stated, Steel/Rock/Ghost types would be absolutely necessary to defend against Donkey Kong
