Make SR affect pokemon double weak (Not quadruple weak. Weakness means affected twice as much as normal) to rock with only 25% health deducted as opposed to 50%.

People who don't think SR needs a nerf are delusional or casual players who have no idea what the meta game is.

If there's one thing that's over-centralizing the meta game, it's rocks. Also weather, but that's another thing entirely.

The only issue I could see from this is Volcarona. But otherwise this or nothing are the best options IMO.

If you are hit super effectively by rock then you lose 25%, whether it's a double weakness or a 4 time weakness
If you resist rock then you lose 6.25%, whether you resist it by half or a quarter.

Halving it's damage.

4x Weakness is 25%.

2x Weakness is 12.5%

Neutral is 6.25%

Any Resistance is 3.125%
This is the worst bird yet.

If it hits something that resists it, the rocks break.

A damage cap and/or letting Rock/Ground/Steel Pokemon remove it like Toxic Spikes.

Seriously, it's fine. And I play the metagame, and I use a UU mono-ice team. So if anyone has a right to complain about it, it's me. But my UU mono-ice team wins about 80% of it's games, and sees SR in about 90% of it's games. If SR was as big a deal as it's made out to be, my ice team would be awful, but it's really not.

People just need to deal with it and work around it.
