There are many of us in the battling community that really like imagining what some Pokemon could do with certain moves, Abilities, and whatever else, AKA theorymonning. There's a branch of this practice that covers moves, Abilities, etc. that Pokemon don't have, but could really use if they did. I'd like to bring that branch to the BS&T.
In this "what if"
machinethread, we can discuss how Pokemon could use certain benefits that they don't actually have (but could reasonably have) and talk about how it could impact the metagame, be the benefit small but helpful (e.g.: Earthquake on Zekrom or Water Absorb on Blastoise), flat-out game-breaking (e.g.: Shell Smash on Salamence or Huge Power on Slaking), or anywhere in between. Wish this Pokemon had that move/Ability/whatever? Tell us all about it here!
Of course, I have to regulate discussion a little. Let's keep things reasonable to a degree, meaning no outright unreasonable or evidently trolly buffs to things like stats (luvdisc with 999 sp atk lololololol), or straying from serious "how could this affect the metagame" discussion. Failure to comply will result in a Wrong/Banned Topic warning/infraction. Game-breaking move/ability placement is acceptable.
