If Smogon doesn't want a "luck" based metagame.

Then why do they allow confuse ray and paralyze?


Check mate Smogon.

To have a completely luck free game is impossible...

You would need to ban any move that has less than 100% accuracy, and any moves with added effects that have less than 100% chance of activation. You would be disqualified if you got a critical hit!

You need to draw the line somewhere.

Because Smogon doesn't alter in-game mechanics from what is prsent on the video game cart, they merely ban certain moves like double team and minimize.

Evasion's more broken than confuse ray and thunder wave though, because--

A lot of smogonites fail to answer this. As far as I stand on the Smogon debate. I'm in the IDGAF group. A lot of people from both sides of the argument are super immature and entitled.

Because you go up against confusion and paralysis without having prepared yourself specifically against them and still do just fine. If, on the other hand, you go up against evasion without having prepared yourself specifically against it, you stand very little chance. It turns the whole metagame into a rock-paper-scissors match between normal teams, evasion teams, and anti-evasion teams.

Honestly it just feels like smogen wants to play "straight up", where people just slug it out back and forth. I guess that is fun....but for the rest of us, we love the game in it's entirety.

Because confusion and paralysis need to be reapplied with every switch. Evasion only needs to be boosted once to ruin your day.
