So, for funsies, I'm curious, how many viable teams are affected by the Primaldon ban? Anyone wanna submit data to me, since I kinda wanna gather it up for curiosity sake and find out. Just want to know how many teams needed significant changes out of your selection of viable teams, and, of those, how many were using Don itself. For example, I had five teams out of eight viable teams directly impacted, with four of them using Don itself. Those numbers don't count my silly, meme, experimental, out-dated, and bad teams. --------- Meanwhile, Primaldon's removal is gonna have some major changes. Some predictions of mine are... -Fire and Ground-typed offense get really diversified and reduced in power, since, if I remember correctly, no other Fire or Ground types have such high base Attack nor mixed offenses. Expect to see Reshiram, Mega-Blazekin, Charizard-Y, Red Orb Groudon, Ho-Oh, and Mega-Garchomp to fill in. -Random Water-coverage will be less common since it really doesn't hit much beyond 'Don that's relevant. This means Burns will probably be less common due to fewer random Scalds. -Fur Coat becomes less common. It's still a really good ability with plenty of use, but the opportunity cost for running something else isn't so steep. -Fire-immunity loses viability, for the same reasons. Primordial Sea may stick around to really tick off Red Orb Groudon if it tries to hang out, but that'll be specific anti-Groudon stuff mostly, I think. -Zygarde-C and Giratina become a bit less common, especially as Fur Coat users, since there isn't so much pressure from Banded Deo Land V-Creates. -Electric-tyes see viability increase. Zekrom especially, as most Ground-types will be weak to its Dragon STAB. Manectric and Xurkitree no longer need a Water-typed move just for Primaldon, freeing up their moveslots and prediction quite a bit and lets them be more flexible. Ampharos-Mega might start seeing some use. -Likewise, Volt Switch sees an increase in viability. Volt Switching onto Zygarde is a lot less detrimental than onto Primaldon, especially with Choice. -Ferrothorn loses viability? At least FF Ferothorn. Blazekin's STAB is super-effective, so if it ends up being the main Fire-type, might see more FF Venusaur instead. Prankster Ferro becomes more viable though by virtue of better opportunity cost now. And uhhh... I'll probably think of a dozen more but, well, don't have them on my head right now. Tired from work and all!
