Pokemon that have fallen from grace?

That said, Swampert has indeed fallen from his grace. Let's just hope Mega Swampert (If he comes) Restores his strength he once had.


As long as it doesn't have Damp. That was a slap-in-the-face for a Hidden Ability when Sceptile got the decent Unburden and Blaziken got the godly Speed Boost.

If explosion hadn't been nerfed, than Damp wouldn't have been that bad. Exploding on Swampert was pretty common in 4th Gen.

A lot of these responses are making me think, are abilities the most important thing to a pokemon now?

A lot of pokemon in OU live and die by their abilities more than anything else. Greninja, Aegislash, Talonflame, Dragonite, Scizor, Azumarill, Mega-Venu, Charizards etc...

All gen 3 starters. Sceptile was once a pretty good special sweeper with lots of speed and decent coverage with leaf blade, dragon claw, and hp ice. The the special physical split happened. Swampert's already been discussed. Blaziken fell off in gen 4 thanks to the ape. Then it got what it needed in speed boost which made it banned along with its mega. Its pretty much not seen the light of competitive battling since 2005 other than VGC.

Zangoose is the one good Pokemon that came after Gen 1, everything else about Gen 3, as well as gens 2, 4, 5 and 6 is awful. I do not like Gen 3, just Zangoose.

King of Fighters is objectively the best franchise.

Volcarona

Talonflame is a major problem to it.


Talonflame is becoming less and less popular now.

Does that mean blind people are invisible?

Mew is probably the most shocking to me, mostly for the fact that it was considered Uber for at least four generations.
