As said a lot need more than one fix, especially gen 1 mons, their stats and spreads just don't cut it and giving 10 to one or two stats does nothing for this. Some mons will always be better than others but it doesn't hurt to make frankly rubbish pokemon have at least a viable niche, I like bugs, but Ariados for example, is never going to be usable. (I know its gen 2 but still)

But since I like bugs I'll go with Ariados....

If one thing is stats, and we're allowed to alter more than one...

Treble that pathetic base speed, I mean 40, for a spider? Lol nah, 120, or at least 100.

Make attack 110-120.

Probs wont be OU still, but making it a Physical Galvantula means it could be sticky web support and has Megahorn, so rivals Galvantulas Thunder (albeit thunder gets slightly more accuracy).

Only alternative I have if two stats are cheating is...

Double its attack stat, though there;s no logical basis I could use to justify doing that in all honesty. But if you did that you could at least stick it on a trick room team firing off choice band megahorns for some epic damage.

The exact opposite of some other topic around there.

I'll start with an obvious one :

-Regigigas : Give him a HA that's not Slow Start, Truant, Stall or Defeatist.
Even Illuminate would work.


Regigigas would be Uber if he has anything else but bad abilities. If you want him banned though, Huge Power, or Khangaskhan's Double-hit. (All hypothetical of course)

There are only a few ways to do this with any Pokemon.

- New ability, preferably one like Drought or Wonder Guard.
- Mega Evolution.

A single move or stat increase isn't going to help most of them, they need a substantial buff to rise up to OU.

Slaking: Has a Mega Evolution, and that Mega Evolution has an ability that isn't Slow Start, Truant, Stall, Defeatist, or some new thing that's designed to hinder it.

Not really. His move pool is pathetic. Part of the reason Slaking is so scary is because it learns everything. Regigigas, on the other hand ...

What part of "change ONE thing" don't people understand?
