    Shuckle with Contrary doesn't sit well with me. What move is there to utilize it?

    There's a reverse Shell Smash, but that's about it.

    Would Lapras been really OP if it had Serene Grace as a Hidden Ability?

    Not that it's current abilities are in any way terrible but I feel Lapras should of gotten Serene Grace.

    Galvantula with SWARM? SERIOUSLY, when you can get one with Compound Eyes for near-100% Thunder?

    -.- Oh come on... why Swarm ;_;

    Hydration isn't half bad at all, there are certainly other Pokemon that got a worse deal from the Dream World than Lapras. As for Serene Grace, a 20% freeze chance on Ice Beam would be annoying, but not game breaking. The 60% paralysis chance on Thunder and Body Slam could prove useful too, though.

    I remember when BW was first released and we found out that Pidgeot had a mysterious unknown ability, and I wondered if this might be the long anticipated break that finally makes it good! Lolnope, Big Pecks.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Reason I asked is because, had it gotten Serene Grace,
    it would of made Lapras into a interesting Para-Flinch alternative,
    one that I'd actually like using besides the ugly Egg-jet.

    And Lapras just seams to fit the "Graceful" profile. So, I was wondering if maybe they didn't give it Serene Grace because they figured it would make it too powerful.

    Wobbuffet with Telepathy. What. Seriously, I bet they put that in there just so Yancy could troll anyone wanting a Wobbuffet.

    Strangest part of Hidden abilities are the fact that
    there are many Pokemon you find in Dream World That have no Hidden Abilities
    Yet there are Many Pokemon that Have Hidden abilities that you can't get with those same abilities....

    I mean, what were they Thinking?

    Swampert gets Damp. That is really pointless on Swampert, especially with Explosion/SD's nerf. Now, I don't actually know what ability is worse: Swampert is too slow to abuse Torrent since it'll probably be KO'd before it can use it well, but Damp is so pointless since it's rarer to find exploders nowadays.

    Also, how does Damp fit Swampert's character? I suppose it's water type...but surely Dry Skin suited it better being a mudfish? Swampert could do with the recovery too...


    Such a photogenic face...

    ;-; They've been all mentioned at this point. Haxorus, Delibird, Truant, Samurott, everything with Keen Eye / Run Away, Big Pecks...there's plenty, but imho most Pokés got actually a good deal.
    I think we should be able to choose the genders of our Pokemon. Better yet, they should choose for themselves.
    They can also choose their orientation for breeding. Imagine the depth.
