Imagine the RSE metagame with Drizzle Politoed? How awesome would that be?

Well it always tells me when i try that "these Pokemon don't exist" in the previous games .
Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-

Easy: because they weren't coded for it.
As an example, Politoed was modified to have a 3rd ability (called "hidden") in Gen.V onwards, and since it doesn't have it in past generations, it would create quite a lot of problems.
