Unless Metagross gets Shift Gear (which it should totally have in my opinion), I think it'll go more of a tank route this gen with Bullet Punch to finish things off.


God i hope not. Hes just bulky enough that this would would basically make him as difficult to handle as volcarona.

Also i would rather that move only went to more machine like pokemon. The only steel type i think could understandably have it added atm is Magnezone. And even then not too certain it should.


LOL what?

Magnezone is a Special Attack Based Pokemon.

Bullet Punch would not do him any good as it is an Attack Dependent move


I was meaning logically speaking, its the most machine based pokemon in the game next to the gear line. Also bullet punch is awesome. The only thing metagross has to worry about that it did not before is sucker punch.

I still don't get why we're still talking about Metagross in Sky Battles -_-

I wonder if they'll make it so certain moves can't be used in Sky Battles. It would be really weird for Gravity or Roost to work and they could even extend it to things like SR.


Gravity and Roost are instant 1-HKOs.

-talking about an ingame type of battle as if it will be competitive

-http://i601.photobucket.com/albums/tt95/ItalianAngel92/gifs/hahaha.gif


Why would sky battles just be ingame? None of the other battling styles have been ingame only. It won't be as big as singles but I'm positive there will be a option to sky battle outside of ingame just saiyan.


Though I doubt horde battles will be a part of competitive

with flying Pokemon like Areodactyl having stealth rock, I presume a key element will be rock resist benefiting Pokemon who have a rock resistant typing as well as rapid spin(though ground stab in particular would be absolutely useless)

Of particular note ground resists rock and is immune to electric though this is(currently) limited to Claydol and Flygon, it could provide great utility especially as Claydol has rapid spin

Sigilyph is also of note as it has an immunity to stealth rock thanks to its ability.

ice could become the primary offensive type as all flying types will be at least neutral as only Bronzong,Cryoganal,and Rotoms heat/wash formes resist ice(of which there is no double resistance)

thus I can't see this being a really good metagame w/out additional changes but it could be interesting...

I'll laugh if its in game only

Zarael(Sorry, if I misspelled his name) is a awesome :)

their won't be teir for anything other then vanilla single battles this a major reason i hate smogon and p.o all they care about is one type of battle.


Actually, while I am also not the biggest Smogon fan, they did announce a few days ago that they'll also have doubles tiers in 6th gen, which is already in earlier planning and testing stages on the site.
