Not sure if Smogon's linkable here, but basically there's some decent testing going on that could make those "useless" abilities much more usable. I don't know about you, but I think that a 1.3x boost on Normal attacks AND the addition of STAB makes them a lot more useful than it was first assumed.

And puts Mega Pinsir straight into Ubers.

You can link to Smogon here. There's no rules. Just expect a little backlash from people who dislike Smogon.

120 BP Fairy Move, gets stab, bypasses Subs, hits both opponents in Doubles if that's your thing. Pixilate isn't meant to give you options, it's just the ability you get that gives you access to THAT.

Aurorus is still kinda hung out to dry though. It has a decent Physical movepool, but that's its bad stat...

Search "mario" until you find a post that looks like it has statistics.

too bad it's still almost useless on Aurorus aside from a gimmicky Hyper Beam

Slyveon still has a horrible moveset and completes with Florges for a spot on teams though Pixilate boosted Hyper Voice will probably push it over

I'm not too sure about how this affects Gardevoir

Pinsir really likes that boosted quick attack and return
woah woah woah
