    I think it wouldn't make a difference, Defense-Boosting Moves generally aren't used.
    On the other hand, a Curse Ferrothorn could work and could be very deadly in some ways.

    It already has Curse.

    If Pikachu can learn Iron Tail (soft little plushy mouse) and Dodrio (no wings) can fly, ES Snorlax can be imagined as using his momentum to make a fast plunge against the opponent.
    Pikachu has been shown to use iron tail in the anime. And just because gf screwed up by giving wrong moves to A and B, that does not mean that they should also give a completely random and illogical move to C.

    And it sucks outside of in-game. Fire attacks are deadly common. It requires too much team support and you are still vulnerable to crits. I would rather put ferro to support my team rather than make my team support ferro.

    What if the Ability Run Away had an addisonal effect in battles, basically like the item Shed Shell?


    I'm a full time Pokemon Breeder! But please visit, I really do appreciate the help.

    That is something I have wondered for some time as well. The problem is that Run away is available only to some mediocre mons who in general have better abilities to abuse.

    What would happen if all the Grass-types are able to learn Rain Dance as well? Currently, only a few Grass-types could learn it, like Roselia family, Amoonguss family and Lotad family. I have no idea why they can't learn them, considering how they also favour Rain as well (it cuts their Fire weakness, which is a plus).

    Also, what would happen if Golurk is Ghost/Fighting? I asked this earlier, but it hadn't been answered yet. Golurk shares a few traits with the average Fighting-type, like the pre-evo being able to learn Focus Blast (yes, Golett can learn this move) and certain Fighting-type attacks by level-up.

    Thanks for reading.

    I feel like it would still be countered by very many things. But It would have been much better in terms of coverage.

    Here's something I had been wondering: What if Haunter and Gengar were able to learn Aura Sphere?

    Starters of choice.

    Well, let's be honest. Gengar does learn focus blast. It's accuracy sucks but it does get the job done. Even with Focus Blast, Gengar has problems with t-tar, scizor, etc which i doubt will change with aura sphere. I think the best Aura sphere can help is by helping gengar win a pp stall war against blissey.

    Haunter does need it though.

    .
    This thought came into my mind when I was looking up the moveset list for Whimsicott on Bublapedia, "No rain dance?! But it learns Hurricane! Why can't I abuse thiiiiiiis"
    And yeah, it would weaken fire types, which is always good.

    I've been thinking of this for a few days. Espeon gets an amazing ability from the Dream world, Magic bounce. What does Umbreon get? Inner f&$%ing focus, who would even use that. My proposal, it instead gets Prankster.
    Think about it, Umbreon with Prankster would be great. It would be able to use Curse before the opponent made a move, but it still wouldn't be overpowered since it isn't particularly fast anyway, and imagine it using Wish.
    Plus, priority Toxic would be cool. I definitely think Prankster on Umbreon would bring it up a tier. Plus, I really like Umbreon.

    I think it would be usable on a pure stall set. Cotton guard + leech seed + toxic + 4th move. It allows it to fully invest in sp def. while still taking physical hits like a boss.


    Anyway, what if Solarbeam worked like Focus Punch in sun? Meaning that it would charge with priority +6 before actually performing the attack? It would no longer be locked into the move by weather-starters switching in this way. What if it kept full base power even if a weather starter switched in? What if it wouldn't charge but still cut the power of the move in half?

    Lets see.

    Pointed Rocks dug in Shedinja. Wasted
    Shedinja is hurt by spikes. Wasted
    Shedinja is poisoned by toxic spikes. Wasted
    Shedinja took sandstorm damage. Wasted
    Shedinja took Hail damage. Wasted

    Trust me, it wouldn't work.
