Beheeyem can get at most 55 BST. Most likely would be +20 BST boost.

An evolution would be good for Beheeyem, but would have some stat distribution change.

Probably. Only good Ability it has is Analytic. Some options would be:

  1. Compoundeyes
  2. Illuminate
  3. Magician
  4. Tinted Lens

Notes on DP important character rosters

For sake of potential stat changes for DP remakes, let's look at the major character teams:

Gym leaders:
-Roark's team consists of Geodude, Onix, and Cranidos. Golem has gained a stat boost in Gen 6, Steelix got a Mega in ORAS, and Cranidos is... Cranidos. Cranidos will likely get another Ability rather than a stat boost.
-Gardenia's team consists of Turtwig, Cherubi/Cherrim, Roserade. Roserade has gained a stat boost in Gen 6, Torterra might get a boost, and Cherrim will likely get a boost.
-Maylene's team got Meditite, Machoke and Lucario. Lucario and Medicham got Megas, Machamp got stat boost.
-Crasher Wake got Gyarados, Quagsire, Floatzel. Gyarados got a Mega, Quagsire and Floatzel got nil, but Floatzel is more likely to get another Ability.
-Fantina got Mismagius, Gengar/Haunter, and Drifblim/Duskull. Gengar got a Mega, Mismagius has no boosts, and Drifblim has a signature HA. Mismagius is the most likely to get a boost.
-Byron has Bronzor/Magneton, Steelix and Bastiodon. Same as Roark, it is most likely that Bastiodon will get another Ability.
-Candice has Medicham/Froslass, Piloswine/Snover, Sneasel and Abomasnow. Abomasnow got a Mega, Medicham has a Mega, Froslass' counterpart has a Mega, and Mamoswine might get a small boost.
-Volkner's Octillery might get a boost.

Elite Four:
-Aaron has Dustox, Beautifly, Vespiquen, Heracross, Drapion. Heracross has a Mega, Drapion, Vespiquen might get boosts, Dustox needs a boost, Beautifly has a boost.
-Bertha has Quagsire, Sudowoodo, Golem, Whiscash and Hippowdon. All of them need boosts.
-Lucian has Mr. Mime, Girafarig, Medicham, Alakazam, Bronzong. Medicham and Alakazam have Megas. Others need boosts.
-Cynthia has Spiritomb, Roserade, Gastrodon, Lucario, Milotic, Garchomp. Lucario and Garchomp have Megas. Roserade has boosts. Gastrodon and Spiritomb might get boosts. Milotic is too powerful and got a new Ability.

How to improve: 198-430: Murkrow-Honchkrow


1.Stats: Should Honchkrow get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Honchkrow already has higher BST than Mismagius, so a boost is unlikely. If it were to get one, it can get at must +35 BST.

An evolution cannot work, as Murkrow is comparable to a middle stage.

A Mega would be cool, and would be better with a stat boost.

2.Should Honchkrow get more abilities?

Honchkrow has decent abilities, but some additions can be:

  1. Gale Wings
  2. Pressure
  3. Rivalry
  4. Sniper
  5. Vital Spirit

3.Should Honchkrow get more moves?

Probably. Switcheroo would be the most obvious one, but Acrobatics, Hone Claws and cutting moves would also work. Ice, Fire and Electric moves would be fun as well.

4.What additional typing Honchkrow can have?

Ghost, Normal and Psychic are the obvious options.

How to improve: 293-294-295: Whismur-Loudred-Exploud


1.Stats: Should Exploud get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Exploud already has +10 boost, but can get +50 boost.

An Evolution is impossible, but a side evolution can work.

A Mega would be a mistake without stat boost.

2.Should Exploud get more abilities?

Yes. Exploud has only two abilities, and two of them are decent, but only one of them is fitting. Some options would be:

  1. Contrary
  2. Iron Fist
  3. Sheer Force
  4. Strong Jaw
  5. Vital Spirit

3. Should Exploud get more moves?

Probably. Nasty Plot would be nice, so would Slack Off. But sound based moves are generally limited, so there isn't much of an option of Exploud.

4.What additional typing Exploud can have?

Psychic, Ground and Fighting are the obvious ones.


How to improve: 619-620: Mienfoo-Mienshao


1.Stats: Should Mienshao get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Mienshao can get at most +30 BST. +15 BST to match Lucario is a bit more likely.

An Evolution can only work if it is specially oriented.

A Mega can be interesting, but would require a fun Ability.

2.Should Mienshao get more abilities?

Mienshao has very good abilities, and doesn't need much. Some options would be:

  1. Iron Fist
  2. Mold Breaker
  3. Moxie
  4. Steadfast
  5. Unburden

3. Should Mienshao get more moves?

Yes, particularly on the special stuff, Mienshao needs more Aura moves and Psychic/Shadow Ball/Energy Ball, and Power Whip. There other moves like Mach Punch and Extreme Speed can work.

4.What additional typing Mienshao can have?

Psychic, Normal and Rock are the most obvious options. Mienshao has a dry movepool so it has not too fulfilled its potential.

How to improve: 408-409: Cranidos-Rampardos


1.Stats: Should Rampardos get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Rampardos can get +30 boost to match Gen 6 fossils, or at maximum +45 BST.

Evolution is also possible, though it would require a shift in stats.

A Mega Evolution needs a lot of Speed to work. But it can work.

2.Should Rampardos get more abilities?
Probably. Rampardos has only two abilities. Some options would include:


  1. Anger Point
  2. Contrary
  3. Hustle
  4. Intimidate 
  5. Iron Fist
  6. Moody
  7. Reckless
  8. Rock Head
  9. Unnerve
  10. Vital Spirit

3. Should Rampardos get more moves?

Probably, some options would be Elemental Fangs, Claws, and Wild Charge. Sound based moves and Dark Pulse would also be welcome for lore reasons.

4.What additional typing Rampardos can have?

Rampardos can get a lot of types, due to its versatile movepool, but the most obvious options would be Fighting, Normal, Steel and Ground.

Notes on Mega Evolution

Assuming Megas are preserved:

-Gen 8: HP changes are now available.
-Gen 10: Multiple abilities are now available.
-Gen 12: Megas now have different stat boosts.
-Gen 14: Megas can now be retained and learn new moves.

Assuming Megas have successors:

-Gen 8: Mega successor retains the abilities, but increases the boost to 120.
-Gen 10: Mega successor has a variant range of 100-140. They have multiple new abilities.
-Gen 12: Mega successor has a variant range of 100-160. They all have the same ability.
-Gen 14: Mega successor has a variant range of 100-180. They have no abilities.

How to improve: 239-125-466: Elekid-Electabuzz-Electivire


1.Stats: Should Electivire get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Electivire has 540 BST, which is the highest common BST.
Electivire cannot evolve further, and is unlikely to have split evolution.
Mega Evolution makes the most sense for Electivire to recover its Speed.

2.Should Electivire get more abilities?

Electivire only has two abilities, so another one is necessary. Some options would be:

  1. Illuminate
  2. Iron Fist
  3. Lightning Rod
  4. No Guard
  5. Soundproof
  6. Volt Absorb

But most likely it is going to be Electric Surge.

3. Should Electivire get more moves?

Electivire is desperate for a stat increasing move like Swords Dance. Outside of that, some options would be Follow Me, Mach Punch, Nasty Plot, Parabolic Charge, Eerie Impulse, and Poison Jab.

4.What additional typing Electivire can have?

Electivire can have Fighting, Fire, and Psychic. Dark and Steel are also options.

How to improve: 060-061-062: Poliwag-Poliwhirl-Poliwrath


1.Stats: Should Poliwrath get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Poliwrath has 510 BST, which seems to be the highest stat for non-starter amphibians. It can get more stats, but it is safe to expect it not to, especially since it already had +10 boost. However, Poliwrath can get a bit more stats so it has a stat over 100.

Poliwrath cannot evolve further.

A Mega would be good, because Poliwrath has terrible stats.

2.Should Poliwrath get more abilities?

Probably. Poliwrath's abilities are below average, so it would be better if it got more abilities, such as:
  1. Iron Fist
  2. No Guard
  3. Water Veil
    3. Should Poliwrath get more moves?
    Probably, Poliwrath does not have a lot of moves. Some options would be:

    3. Bulldoze(Available for Poliwhirl, Politoed and Poliwrath)

                                                                                                                                1.Stats: Should Seismitoad get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

                                                                                                                                Seismitoad has 509 BST, which is roughly the same as Poliwrath's. While the species can get much more, it is unlikely that will happen, as it already got a boost.

                                                                                                                                An evolution is impossible, though a side evolution in allusion to Politoed would be interesting.

                                                                                                                                A Mega can be okay, but it probably won't be too important

                                                                                                                                2.Should Seismitoad get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Tentacruel already has 180 BST gap from its pre-evolution, so at most it can get 10 more stats.

                                                                                                                                An evolution would have to follow Porygon-Z's principle, which is possible as Tentacruel has a large physical movepool.

                                                                                                                                A Mega can work, but it would feel like a bit of a waste.

                                                                                                                                4.What additional typing Tentacruel can have?

                                                                                                                                An evolution is impossible, but a refined variant of the Z can work.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be potentially game breaking and fun.

                                                                                                                                4.What additional typing Tangrowth can have?

                                                                                                                                Crobat has 535 BST, which is the second major highest BST tier a common species can get. So a stat boost is unlikely.

                                                                                                                                An evolution is impossible, unless it is a defensive split evolution.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be perfect. Crobat has average stats, and a Mega would properly min-max its other stats.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Crobat get more abilities?

Some options would be Elemental Fangs, Hurricane, Calm Mind, Psychic, Gastro Acid, Boomburst, Gunk Shot and Hyper Voice.

                                                                                                                                4.What additional typing Crobat can have?

                                                                                                                                Haxorus literally cannot evolve further, but a defensive side evolution would work.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be great, as its greatest missing stat is its Speed.

It also shares its BST with its counterpart Ursaring, which shares its 500 BST with other bears.

                                                                                                                                An evolution would be interesting, but it would be just an upgraded Donphan.

                                                                                                                                Because of the above, Gyarados cannot get an evolution. It can get a mid-stage, however.

                                                                                                                                Gyarados already has a Mega, though it is quite terrible due to its in-game role as Lysandre's signature. It deserves a better one.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Gyarados get more abilities?

Acrobatics and Recover are the most obvious ones, followed by Coil, Dragon Rush, Glare, Sucker Punch and Aqua Jet. Overall more Flying and Dark-type moves would help.

                                                                                                                                4.What additional typing Gyarados can have?

                                                                                                                                Weezing has only 150 BST gap, which is insufficient. It can get +20 more stats at minimum, and up to 540 BST at maximum.

                                                                                                                                An evolution would be fitting both thematically and statistically, but it wouldn't be too different from regular Weezing.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be a waste, without an ability change. Addition of Dark or Fire-type would help it a lot with Levitate, but otherwise forget it.

                                                                                                                                Clawitzer can get at maximum 540 BST, which would be +40 BST boost, but since it already has 170 BST gap from its pre-evo, this seems unlikely.

                                                                                                                                Clawitzer can get an evo that would shift its stats to a different orientation, like a speed orientation or Attack one. But that would be it.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be beautiful. Clawitzer already has an Ability designed for Megas, so this would be the perfect fit.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Clawitzer get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                YES. While Clawitzer has one of the best abilities in the game, it is not too fitting for it. Some other options would include:

                                                                                                                                1. Hydration

                                                                                                                                3.Should Clawitzer get more moves?

                                                                                                                                Maybe. Clawitzer already has a decent movepool, but it can get much more.

                                                                                                                                Mismagius can get +10 BST to match Honchkrow, but it can also get 535 BST, to match Tangrowth.

                                                                                                                                An evolution can work if it rearranges its stats, as Mismagius' stats are based on Misdreavus' stats.

                                                                                                                                A Mega without a stat boost would not be good, but a Mega with stat boost can work.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Mismagius get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                1. Draining Kiss

                                                                                                                                How to improve: 433-358: Chingling-Chimecho



                                                                                                                                1.Stats: Should Chimecho get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

                                                                                                                                Chimecho has gained significant boost in the last games, around 30. This gives Chimecho around 170 BST gap from Chingling. Chimecho can get at most around 485 BST, which would make it close to Musharna.

                                                                                                                                An evolution, despite the stat boost, is obviously more fitting for the species, as it can get around 85 BST.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would not work, even with an absurd typing or ability.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Chimecho get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Yes. Chimecho has only one ability, Levitate. Additional options could be:

                                                                                                                                Cherrim already has 175 BST gap from its pre-evolution, and its stats are closer to that of a middle stage, ignoring its ability. If it were to get more stats, it would get at most to 475 BST, meeting around Whimsicott and Lilligant.

                                                                                                                                Cherrim would be much better with an evolution, however, as it can get around 90 more stats.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be a gimmick. It would require its current ability to become even remotely useful.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Cherrim get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Analysis of Types: Chapter 18: Fairy-type: Part 3: In-Universe Symbolism and Mythology

                                                                                                                                What is Fairy-type's role, really?

                                                                                                                                The Legendaries & Their Role:
                                                                                                                                Life:

                                                                                                                                Xerneas:

                                                                                                                                Xerneas is based off the four stags of Yggdrassil, with elements of Cernunnos thrown in. Xerneas's rainbow coloring is a shout out to the rainbow bridge, which connects the realms of Yggdrasil. Xerneas' feminine depiction and its blue coloring seems to be a reference to the Woman of the Apocalypse, particularly those depictions that equate her with Virgin Mary and some of the saints.

                                                                                                                                Crystals:

                                                                                                                                Diancie:

                                                                                                                                Diancie, like its minion Carbink, is based off a carbuncle and a diamond. It is based off the rare pink diamond, which is pink colored due to iron in it. Its princess design is probably based off RPG enemies that are generally depicted as the royalty of their minions and serves as a shout out to the French royalty.

                                                                                                                                Land Spirits:

                                                                                                                                Tapus:

                                                                                                                                All Tapus are called the Land Spirit Pokémon. They are based off the Hawaiian pantheon, and they look like Hawaiian dolls that represent their gods, with their iridescent eyes. Their status as the Guardians of Alola is reminiscent of Latis' status as Guardians of Alto-Mare. Their signature move, Guardian of Alola, is a shout out to Doshin the Giant, a god game published and partially developed by Nintendo.

                                                                                                                                Magearna:

                                                                                                                                Magearna's Soul-Heart is composed of Infinite Energy, ie. life force of Pokémon. It is effectively a synthetic Mega Stone, while Magearna's body is a Poké Ball and its Fleur Cannon is a junior sized Ultimate Weapon. Its status as a robot with life is an allusion to Pinocchio and other living toys from fairy tales.

                                                                                                                                Valerie:

                                                                                                                                Valerie is a Furisode Girl who came from Johto. She is an otherworldly person who thinks she is a Fairy. She is basically an in-canon furry.

                                                                                                                                Mina:

                                                                                                                                Mina is an old Trial Captain whose mind is off somewhere else. She is far too lazy and clumsy to have a proper Trial, and even in the post-game she forgets to have her Z-move in her team. She is basically an in-canon druggie.

                                                                                                                                The Overview:

                                                                                                                                The Legendary species are generally stuff based on creation, life and destruction. You know, common Celtic stuff.

                                                                                                                                The trainers themselves are generally depicted as unfitting to their region, and their minds are generally in somewhere else. Somewhere nasty, probably. Which is also fitting, considering Fairies are basically 11-dimensional abominations.

                                                                                                                                However, since most Fairies must be cute and photogenic, there hasn't be a nice, good cosmic horror here, or even an absurdist monstrosity like NGE Angels or PMMM Witches. But, in time, they shall come.

                                                                                                                                Editor's Note: This is the end of Type Analyses for now. There will likely be another one of these things once we get another type in the next two decades. I'll probably own more stocks than Pokémon games by then, though.

                                                                                                                                Analysis of Types: Chapter 18: Fairy-type: Part 2: The Design Philosophies and Archetypes


                                                                                                                                So, what are Fairy-types, really?

                                                                                                                                The Purpose of the Fairy Type:

                                                                                                                                Fairy-type was designed to be the girly type of Pokémon, and serving a generic cleric role. To this end, Fairy-type was granted a large Special Defense, and lots of nice resistances to the physically offensive types. Fairy-types was also designed to push back against Dragon-types, and also Dark and Fighting-types, and allow Psychic and Grass-types some resistance to Bugs, while giving Poison and Steel more offensive breach.

                                                                                                                                Fairy-type also served as a major coverage type for both physical and special species, particularly those species who couldn't get other type coverage besides paranormal moves or animalistic moves.

                                                                                                                                The Aesthetic Archetypes of Fairy Types:

                                                                                                                                Most Fairy-types are White or Pink, though in general they have pastel coloring. Archetypically, Fairies can be divided into following groups:

                                                                                                                                Mythical Beasts:

                                                                                                                                These are species based off either myths, or are animals and plants with some magical power. They are generally in variety of Egg Groups.

                                                                                                                                Pixies:

                                                                                                                                These are species based off common fairies and other vague species with fairy characteristics. They are generally in Fairy Egg Group.

                                                                                                                                Enchanted Item:

                                                                                                                                These are species that mimic existing objects, or are existing objects animated by magic. They are generally in Mineral or Amorphous Egg Groups.

                                                                                                                                The In-game Archetypes of Fairy Types:

                                                                                                                                Early game Fairy-type: These are the most common group of Fairies. They can be powerful but hard to raise, or weak but easy to raise.

                                                                                                                                Cleric: These are species that are based off clerics. They are often nurses of their region.

                                                                                                                                The Stat Archetypes for Fairy Types:

                                                                                                                                Special Wall: The dominant archetype for Fairy-types. These are species with huge Special Defense and okay HP.

                                                                                                                                Balanced: These are species without much orientation towards anything. They tend to have nice stat boosting moves.

                                                                                                                                Bulky Offense: These are species generally oriented towards Special Defense and Attack.

                                                                                                                                Annoyer: These are species that are focused on abusing their speed to use status moves.

                                                                                                                                Cleric: These are species that use their defenses to support their party.

                                                                                                                                Analysis of Types: Chapter 18: Fairy-type: Part 1: The Retrospective


                                                                                                                                So, what is the Fairy-type?

                                                                                                                                While Fairies existed as fantasy tropes since time immemorial, they have rarely been significant. Fairies have existed either nature spirits, local deities, or small magical creatures to be exploited with. However unlike the most of the other species in this realm, Fairies seem to be popularized by two games, one being SMT, where Fairies exist as early-game magic users, Touhou series, where fairies exist as early mid-bosses and mooks, and Legend of Zelda, where fairies are the most important races in all of Hyrule. The most conventional archetype for fairies is not the Shakespearean version of middle sized magical sprites with ridiculous sex drives and world shattering menstrual problems, or earlier Gaelic fairies who are just absurdist monsters; but rather Tinkerbell from Disney's interpretation of Peter Pan.

                                                                                                                                The latter is also where Pokémon takes most of its inspiration from, but Fairies also serve another role. Historically, Dark-type was opposed by Psychic-type, but Psychic-types are more oriented stage magic and modern espers than what Pokémon franchise wanted to be, white mages. With the absence of a proper cleric class, with or without a divine association, Normal and Psychic-types had to be used for this role. But as Dark and Ghost evolved into proper dark arts types, there needed something to combat them. In addition, there needed to be some way to reverse Psychic-type's decline. As for other reasons why Fairy-type was created, we will get into them right now.

                                                                                                                                The Pre-History of the Fairy-type: Fairy Egg Group:

                                                                                                                                Historically, Pokémon has always had species designed for female fans predominantly. Clefairy and Jigglypuff are the most famous ones of the early era, as Clefairy was intended to be the franchise mascot, and Jigglypuff serves as a historical secondary mascot of the first generation. However, though these species had powerful movepools, they did not have powerful stats, especially in the first generation when the franchise was so heavily focused on physical types.

                                                                                                                                These initial cutemons were Normal-types with immense variety of moves. The idea was that these species, with their vast capabilities would climb up despite their statistical issues, or at the very least would manage a role in the in-game teams. This compensation did not work, so, GameFreak created two new mechanics, one was the genders and gender ratios, and the other was Egg Groups. Adding a breeding mechanic seemed to make sense, as it would create tons of cute babies, fire up girl trainers' motherly instincts. The new gender ratios would also showcase which species was more feminine and which weren't, which allowed the franchise to utilize more generic gender stereotypes, to please both sides. Predictably, Male-only species got better due to offensive orientation of the metagame.

                                                                                                                                This, of course, did not pan out as planned. Movesets might break Pokémon, and breeding chains may make silly species relevant once or twice, but they do not make Pokémon. And true to this fashion, Fairy Egg Group, was one of the limited Egg Groups, requiring Field to be its intermediate. The third generation set out to fix this, by first granting Fairy Egg Group more stuff to work with such as the awesome Breloom, but also created Contests, where Pokémon would exclusively compete with their movesets. This was expected to fix the cutemons' lack of power, and grant them a new flamboyant design. However, GF saw that initial contests were, while fun, were also far too repetitive with lack of competitiveness. So, instead of fixing this problem, they added in a dancing rhythm game and a dress-up feature. These characteristics ultimately lived on DLC nonsense Pokémon Musicals, which ultimately broke the Contests until they were brought back as regional fluff.

                                                                                                                                In this time, there has been a few things going on. One was the ongoing decline of Psychic-type. In addition to being reduced to a gimmick type, Psychic-type had another unfortunate thing going for it. Its color. Psychic powers were generally represented with pinkish auras, so we ended up with a type that is pink colored. And of course, Pink is the Gurrl color. Actually, for Gen 2, Normal-type was the Pink type, but since GF decided to retcon that, we ended up with Psychic as the girl type for a while. To this end, Psychic-type was given several cleric moves like Healing Wish and Heal Pulse, and GF really tried to make it a White Mage-type, but that failed miserably. So, the alternative to that would be to make a companion type to Psychic-type that would serve as an upgraded version of the type, similar to the mechanic between Water and Ice.

                                                                                                                                Another was the shift in the metagame, both in-game and in-competitive. The traditional poster-boy was Dragon-type for this change, but Fighting and Dark have improved drastically from the previous generations, while Poison floundered as time passed on. The presence of Dragon-types in the competitive was not an issue, but their presence in-game started to cause issues, as Dragon-types were designed to work for late-game, but were soon found out to be usable early-game as well, though overpowered. This shift was caused by a shift in GF's design, as GF now wanted Dragon-type to become a primary type of the metagame, and thus in TCG Dragon became its own type. However, since Dragon-type did not have a weakness to anything but itself in TCG, something needed to be done. In addition, rise of Fighting and Dark allowed more masculine species to come out, with several punk, biker and Fighting-type classes getting a significant presence in-game. Something needed to change.

                                                                                                                                The History of the Fairy-type:

                                                                                                                                And lo and behold, Fairy-type was created. Designed to be a Specially oriented type that would serve as Steel-type's equivalent for Special-types and the new Dragon-killer, Fairy-type immediately found home in many new and old species. Some of the early specifications of the type were for specific reasons. Its interactions with Fighting, Dark and Bug were designed to help out Psychic-type, similar to how Ice-type's effectiveness against Grass-type was designed to help Water. Its weakness to Poison and Steel was designed to buff two physically defensive but offensively lacking types. Its immunity to Dragon-types was designed to block Dragon-type's powerful STAB moves, which was their crowning achievement.

                                                                                                                                Many abilities Fairy-type had were taken from its parents, Normal and Psychic. Cute Charm was granted to this type as Fairy-type inherited Normal-type's cuteness. Sweet Kiss and Moonlight were taken from Normal-type as well. Many Fairy-types also gained Psychic-type moves, particularly either one of Psyshock or Psychic, as well as Grass-type moves, due to Fairy's role as a support type for these types.

                                                                                                                                In the seventh generation, Fairy-types were granted tons of new species, though mostly on the mediocre side statwise. These new species exploited Fairy-type's status as a cleric type, and made Sweet Veil and Telepathy, latter of which taken from Psychic-type as naturalized abilities for Fairy-type.

                                                                                                                                Sadly, no new common Fairy-types have not been introduced, and the new Abilities did not see much distribution. But previous generations' signature moves found new homes.

                                                                                                                                The Overview of Fairy-types:

                                                                                                                                Fairy-type is regarded as the best type of the current metagame. This is obviously untrue, they are the second best type in the game. Fairy-type, much like Ice-type in Gen I and Steel-type currently has the ability to make any terrible species good. This was intentional, as many Fairy-types have mediocre and balanced stats, due to their early history as a subset of Normal-types and their post-secession history as nature spirits and early-game species. Despite this, Fairy-type already has several species with tremendous BST.

                                                                                                                                Fairy-types are also great for coverage, when they are available. Because they are intended to replace to Ice-type and pre-Gen 3 Psychic-type, Fairy-type moves remain somewhat rare, available to only few low stat but powerful species, and early game fodder. This might change soon as Fairy-types get a similar distribution to Psychic-types in the current generations, but whether that will happen or not depends on how the type will evolve.

                                                                                                                                7 Eylül 2017 Perşembe

                                                                                                                                Some alternative ideas would be:

                                                                                                                                1. Each subdex can get its own starter and sub-legendaries, with final one having the mascot legendaries.
                                                                                                                                2. Each subdex can have its own early game stuff.
                                                                                                                                3. Each subdex can have the same dex structure with same primary or secondary types and similar stats, but with different species. So for example, 147-150 would be Dragon pseudos,  015-018 would be early Flying-types, etc.
                                                                                                                                4. Each subdex would be divided in terms of BSTs, with lower BSTs belonging to earlier dexes and so on.

                                                                                                                                5 Eylül 2017 Salı

                                                                                                                                1.Stats: Should Armaldo get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

                                                                                                                                Armaldo has at best 30 more stats it can get... and it won't help it much. It will help it in-game certainly, but not competitively.

                                                                                                                                An evolution with great speed would be better and help it differentiate from other Rock/Bug-types.

                                                                                                                                A Mega can be interesting, but would probably be either part Steel, or just a Golisopod or Mega Aggron ripoff. It is not too worth it.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Armaldo get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Yeah sure. It has two okay abilities, but both of them are horribly unfitting. It needs something like Hyper Cutter or Touch Claws. Or let's have full list again:

But first, it should get Bug Bite instead of the other Slash like its pre-evolution. After that ORAS goof is fixed, here's a full list of potential moves:

                                                                                                                                Seaking is a particularly notorious Pokémon due to being the worst of all Fishing Rod species. Its statistically the worst, typing-wise it is the worst and movepool-wise it is the worst. The only saving grace it has is its memetic Lightningrod ability. Really, it is so terrible that if we are being honest with ourselves, the maximum it can get as a stat boost is around 25, to match Bruxish.

                                                                                                                                However, what Seaking really needs is a good evolution. Something like a giant koi from the Japanese paintings would be a nice match against Kingdra.

                                                                                                                                A Mega would be a nice joke, but it wouldn't really save it. Sharpedo's Mega didn't help it at all, compared to its HA.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Seaking get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Oddly enough, Seaking's abilities are alright. But if it were to get more, here's some options:
                                                                                                                                1. No Guard

                                                                                                                                Seaking should definitely get more moves, as the moves it has are because of its ridiculous horn, which while inspiring many jokes, is just a stupid Gen I design choice. Here are some options:

                                                                                                                                Kecleon's stats resemble Vigoroth, so the best idea for it would be an evolution and a pre-evo. A +100 boost is unlikely, but a +20 boost, similar to that given to Solrock and Lunatone would be nice.

                                                                                                                                As said above, an Evolution would be the best way to go with Kecleon. A decent, horned Normal/Dragon Chameleon with Protean is really the ideal dream for it, though one can go crazy and give Kecleon a pseudo-Arceus evolution, as a form of Silvally that is properly min-maxed.

                                                                                                                                A Mega is nonsensical, unless it has a weird ability that grants it all the types in the game or something.

                                                                                                                                2.Should Kecleon get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                Yes. Kecleon has two abilities, one being a signature ability that sucks, and other being one of the best Abilities in the game. Some ideas would be:

                                                                                                                                Kecleon has a very large movepool, so it is not too necessary. Nasty Plot to abuse its special moves would be nice for in-game, though. Swords Dance would be nice as well.

                                                                                                                                4.What additional typing Kecleon can have?

                                                                                                                                Kecleon can change its type to anything, so it can be any type, really.

                                                                                                                                Notes on generational amount of introduction of fully evolved species.

Due to this reason, most of the numbers would be more similar to each other. This was a deliberate choice in my part, as the other way around would imbalance the first four generations.

                                                                                                                                Note 2: Side evolutions will be considered as different species due to similar reasons. Alternate forms, even those which are practically different species like Alolan Forms and Lycanroc Forms will not be counted.

                                                                                                                                Tropius has 465 BST, which is very low. Of course Tropius can literally get any stat boost, but an evolution would be better.

                                                                                                                                As said above, an evolution would be better due to Tropius' BST. A companion pre-evolution is also plausible, which would make Tropius a pretty large three-stage species.

                                                                                                                                A Mega is nonsensical with the current BST.

                                                                                                                                                                        1.Stats: Should Meowstic get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

                                                                                                                                                                        Logically, with Espurr's 355 BST, Meowstic should have around 525 BST, but instead has 466 BST, about 60 BST less than it should be. If this is granted, or even a +30 BST is given to match early Fossil Pokémon, Meowstic's BST might become fitting, but as of now it is a complete joke even by its own standards.

                                                                                                                                                                        Ignoring that, Meowstic's low BST is similar to that of a middle stage, so an evolution can easily work, particularly one that exploits its bounded Psychic energy. No catmon has had three stages so far besides Luxray, however. Retroactively, if it is meant to be a terrible species, Espurr's high BST can be circumvented with a pre-evolution to Espurr.

                                                                                                                                                                        A Mega simply cannot work.

                                                                                                                                                                        2.Should Meowstic get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                                                        Meowstic's only notable abilities are their HAs, Prankster and Competitive. Infiltrator is okay but mediocre, and Keen Eye is just terrible despite the buff.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Sawk's BST is 465, which is 10 more than Hitmons' 455. This makes it unlikely  gain any stat boost, though hypothetically if it were allowed to it can get 75 BST.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Sawk's BST is similar to that of Magneton, so an evolution would make sense.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                A Mega would not work, even if Sawk is decently min-maxed.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                2.Should Sawk get more abilities?

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Sawk has okay abilities, but nothing too out of the ordinary. Some other options would include:

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                1.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Chatot's current BST is the same as Vivillon, an early game three-stage butterfly. This is obviously terrible. Chatot can get at maximum 129 BST.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Chatot's BST is similar to that of a middle-stage, so an evolution would be a perfect fit.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                With Chatot's BST, unless it has Mega Beedrill-like stats, a Mega Chatot would be a failure.
