    That's a good point about Will-O-Wisp. This means that Tyranitar is not the proper answer to Celebi (not like it was proper in the first place), because now it has Burn to worry about. While not every Ghost-type gets it, it won't be hard to imagine Celebi getting it anyway as a Ghost-type, because even some who is weak to Fire gets it too (Shedinja)!

    Thanks for reading.

    I feel like in this new Metagame, having the ability cloud nine would be absolutely fantastic on certain pokemon. Cloud Nine on Tornadus perhaps, or even have moves that cancel weather effects. It would level the playing field a lot more, and force trainers to actually try and make a team that doesn't rely on Politoed or Ninetails.

    Ghost/Steel Typing would also be cool to see. It would have all the resistances.

    Giving Pokemon like Heatmor, Torkoal, better base stats, or even revamping most fire type Pokemon. I just also feel like Poison deserves another type that is weak against poison.

    Doesn't the whether simply resume once the Pokemon with Cloud Nine leaves the field?

    Starters of choice.

    That is correct. But think about it. Putting cloud nine or Air lock on certain Pokemon can definitely stop a person from sweeping or stalling.

    What if Defog erased weather when used? While finding something to give up a slot for it could be problematic, it would be nice to have something that simply denies the opponent their weather of choice without the possibility of it being used against you, or having to base a team around a different weather yourself. The closest thing to that we have at the moment is Hail, more and more teams are including Abomasnow not to abuse hail, but to simply foil the opponent's weather based strategies.

    You already noted its similarity to Froslass, who doesn't get WoW despite being a Ghost type, so I'd say there's a good chance Celebi wouldn't get it.

    Now Poison/Steel Garbodor would be such a welcome change. A lot of sets run Air Balloon anyway and the resistd would help it as a wall/entry hazard set-upper

    What if Magazone had No-Guard?

    It would definitely run Zap Cannon.

    It would also have to give up its major niche (Steel trapping) in order to run No Guard.

    Even if it got that, I doubt it'd be used nearly as much as Magnet Pull. Magnet Pull is the main reason why Magneton was OU as well as Magnezone, and why Magnezone is (and will continue to be, as long as Steel types pose a threat) used so much.

    Take a look at Analytic.

    What if the Abosrb Bulb and Cell Battery granted immunity?

    What if the Abosrb Bulb and Cell Battery also worked with abilities like Moter Drive and Volt Aborsb?

    Would certainly be interesting if not overpowering with the immunity, but the combination thing should be fine.

    What if Pikachu have access to Speed Boost, holding Light Orb and have Electro Ball, Protect and Nasty Plot as its move? (It can use Protect to get some speed and that will boost Electro Ball at the same time, use Nasty Plot when given the chance)

    Speaking of Speed Boost, do you think that if Salamence were to get that ability, would it skyrocket to Ubers again and for that matter, would he even outclass Garchomp finally?

    He would get booted to ubers no doubt. Scarfed mons like Terrakion would no longer be answers to him and he could potentially invest in bulk making him really bulky.

    He wouldn't outclass Garchomp fully. Garchomp still has that immunity to t-wave, sandstorm, great STAB, etc.
