Distribute this Move!: Skill Relay
by, 4th October 2012 at 07:58 AM (820 Views)
For this blog, I shall ask some users (which might be you, if you are into this sort of thing) to distribute a new move. Perhaps it's odd for me to ask people to do this, but I am really interested in some responses. When distributing a move, it is important to consider a few things (though they may not be perfect):
1) The move should not break a Pokemon. For example, Shedinja cannot learn Endeavour due to its HP. Another example would be Spore on Whimsicott.
2) Distribute this move well. Certain moves may sound broken by nature (Spore and Quiver Dance), but if it is distributed well (by giving it to a select few users), it won't be an issue. Some useful but not extremely powerful moves do warrant a wider distribution, like Scald and Giga Drain.
3) It has to fit them flavour-wise. They should be logically able to use it, even if they couldn't necessarily utilise this move well.
With the rules said, let's get down to the move we shall look into distributing:
Type: Psychic (Status)
Effect: After using, the user will switch out. The new switch-in will gain the ability of the user. Does not work if the user or recipient have Multitype, Wonder Guard, Slow Start or Truant.
Basically, this move is like Entrainment, but more suited for a Singles environment due to the fact that the new user is able to inherit this ability. So for example, if a Download Porygon used this move, the new switch-in will have Download at the cost of their current ability, like say, Sand Stream (meaning it won't be activated). Now, I am not saying this move must be on Porygon because I said it, but i am just giving you an example. Boosts won't be passed in the manner of Baton Pass, but it would work in the same way as said move in that it will make the recipient inherit something from the user.
Now, I am testing the waters with this idea, and if it becomes popular, then I shall turn this into potential threads in another part of the forum. I would also like to hear some feedback on this idea too. I could name some uses for this move, but I would abstain my suggestions, probably for a later time.
So, how shall you distribute this move? (Note: Only for available Pokemon)
Thanks for reading.
