Back in 2010, during Pac-man's 30th Anniversary, we got a glimpse at what is Namco's attempt at Pac-man's redesign. Before this survey, Type A was used as the basis of the redesign, in which it is seen in the Pac-man CG animation trailer and Pac-man Party for the Wii. However, now Namco wants the fans help! You vote through Facebook, by the way.
So what do I like? Honestly, I love all these redesigns.
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.

If you don't know what Pokemon Showdown is, it's basically a Pokemon simulator that runs on the web, meaning you don't need to install a battle simulator like Shoddy or Pokemon Online. It is, in a word, convenient, because you can access it anywhere. However, I am writing this because I stumbled on what is essentially a programmer's attempt at diversifying OU while adhering to certain limitations like leaving the base stats as it is, and changes have to make sense.

Here’s something that I just thought of when thinking of the implications of Little Cup being at a higher level. Now, I never played Little Cup before, but I heard that matches were quite fast-paced. Essentially, the matches are for Pokémon at their basest form, meaning that if something can evolve, they are qualified. For example, Bulbasaur is qualified because it can still evolve. However, Unown is not qualified because it doesn’t evolve, despite being in its basest form.
When I played PO's servers, it occurred to me how different the environment between that and Smogon is. I realised this when I used a team based on Smogon's NU tier, and I am quite surprised to see a few Pokemon not on Smogon's NU list there (Even then, the Pokemon I encountered are handled well by my team). I will cover some of those differences in a minute, but it's fascinating to see those differences exist. What are some of those changes I noticed? Well, here's a breakdown:
