How much would the metagame change if pokemon could use 5 moves in-battle?

How big would the catastrophe be?

It would be great. 6th generation in and we still have 4 moves? It's like Call of Duty, same game every year.

spinners wouldn't feel like a let down, with only 3 other moves to choose from.

also, Defog and roost on some flying pokemon would be great while not sacrificing any utility

I think it would phase out some hazards

Dragons will love this

I imagine the gam will become much more offensive, due to how have greater coverage in attacks.

it won't ever happen, but it would be fairly catastrophic. pokemon with small movepools like jolteon would lose out while a lot of pokemon with 4MSS like lucario and kangaskhan would absolutely love it.

I would also love 5 moves for hm slaves if they must stay in the game

Lucario can now carry Ice Punch, CC, SD, BP, Crunch

Tyranitar can now carry SR, Crunch, Stone Edge, Fire Blast, Ice Beam

Skarmory can now carry BB, Roost, Spikes, Whirlwind, Taunt

And most of all, I don't even want to imagine the new Gliscor

Those pkmn with 4-slot-syndrome will appreciate the change immensely.
