This just popped into my head after looking around on smogon for a while, but what if they added a move that acted like safeguard (up for the party for 5 turns) that made all moves affecting your party to be neutrally effective when they hit. Do you think a move like that would go over well?

It would break the metagame.

Imagine Scizor taking neutral damage from Fire type moves.
Or Garchomp taking neutral from Ice.
Or Charizard-*shot*

Prankster Sableye would probably learn this...
*shudders*
You just need him to switch in, set this up, and switch out.
Repeat when needed...

I don't like the idea of it making all SE damage neutral. It's a bit too much reduction.

Maybe if it reduces all damage effectiveness by one stage though?

4x -> 2x
2x -> Neutral
Neutral -> 1/2
1/2 -> 1/4 or Not Effective

And maybe for, say, 3 rounds, but 5 is just too much.

(I think there's already a move like that though, I just can't remember for sure... >.>; )

Shedinja.


Hahaha yes, that would be aweful and amazing at the same time! It was just a thought, I figured you cancel out any immunities or resistances to not have any weakness would balance it a little. But Shedinja could still get roughed by hazards or status.
