Zygarde's Land's Wrath

#1ShogunuuPosted 2/28/2014 6:43:02 PM
Why did they make Zygarde's signature move a weaker version of Earthquake? Such a missed opportunity...

It doesn't hit allies in doubles and triples.

Does better in doubles in about it for the move. Since Uber doubles is so popular.

The fact that Land's Wrath doesn't run the risk of slaughtering your own Pokemon in Doubles/Triples is well worth the drop in power; especially since Zygarde gets STAB on it.

I don't get it either. Since it's a signature move, they could have made it at least a little bit stronger than Earthquake.

Oh well, it's Glaciate all over again I guess.

Well, the real kicker is... why give it a move SPECIFICALLY for Doubles, when it's banned in VGC format anyway? Despite being more than balanced enough to not be banned no less.

Uh, I did read them. Why can't it be stronger than Earthquake and not hit your partner(s)?

Poor Zygarde needs all the help it can get.

Like Kyurem, I have no doubt in my mind Zygarde will receive Formes that will border broken in later games.

It's fine the way it is, considering that route does happen. Though Zygarde is arguably the weakest/most underwhelming (possible) Mascot Trio member to date...

Zygarde is FAR better than non-fused Kyurem. It's got two great boosting moves and a solid moveset, letting it run a decent variety of sets.
