PostSubject: Banned / Altered List   Sat Nov 16, 2013 4:17 pm

Why are some abilities or moves banned/altered?

We define abilities in this site vastly differently than they are defined in the games, or even on other sites. Why? Many abilities are useless there. For example, intimidate. This is pointless, as we don't have exactly numbered stats, and it largely makes no sense anyway. Why would a charizard be intimidated by an arcanine? It's an annoying system for abilities that this, more real-life forum doesn't use. If you are intimidated by someone, your natural strength doesn't weaken, that makes no sense, as at implies that your muscle mass grows and shrinks suddenly from battle to battle. While you might be hesitant to fight a foe that intimidates you, you would be become physically weaker by facing one. And many people are cocky or arrogant, and would not be intimidated anyway. The games can't take all this in. Why? It would take huge amounts of information to calculate what personalities randomly given would make a pokemon immune or resistant to every single pokemon type or ability. It would become a tangled mess. This is also why the game only allows 4 moves at a time, as having every pokemon be able to use every move it has learned thus far would take up all the screen and be supremely annoying. Other abilities or moves are banned because they are god-moding. It violates the RP rules to force their pokemon to be in love with yours. The same goes for forcing them to be taunted into not being able to mae non attacks.

Now that we have explained why abilities are differently here, let us move on to how, firstly, there are:

Banned Abilities

We are composing a list, so give us time regarding this matter, there are a lot of abilities and it's not easy to put them all down at the same time. These may be added from time to time. If you are curious, as to why one is banned, ask a staff member. But first, think on it yourself and you may see why without asking. If you can convince the admins or mods of your case, in a member feedback topic, so we have a perfect log of the "arguement" over it, it may be removed from this list. But the admins must be the ones to remove it.

Note: All priority abilities are banned. Why? This makes no sense. If a slow pokemon uses quick attack, there is no reason a still faster pokemon can't attack faster. This over-rides speed for no real reason.

Note: If it prevents lowering of stats, lowers stats, raises stats, or in generaly effects stats by raising their level, or raising it, it is banned. There are no normal stat tiers and many don't make sense.

Priority

All moves that automatically go first, or have a higher priority are now considered to be that pokemons speed, +1 rank. This solves the problem of slow pokemon out-speeding fast pokemon, as it only gives a single speed stat to that 1 attack. A small boost that helps get the end on an opponent near or at the same speed as you. As such, quick attack, etc. are no longer banned.

Stat Reducing Moves/Abilities


Many have been banned. Why? many do not make sense. how does you growling at me make me physically weaker? That makes no sense. Much the same for the ability 'Intimidate." Many are banned or altered. Any any that are not banned or altered AND don't make sense, probably will be, so assume they are. In addition, all stat ups and downs are reduced to moving up or down a single rank. Ask staff if you have questions.
