dream world abilities  
i'm trying to spoil as little as i can here (i like even the small surprises) buttttt i couldn't wait and i'm reading over the dream world abilities list on serebii

so what do you guys think!

it opens up some competitive battle doors ;_; i'm kind of excited..

ARMALDO - swift swim. yeah this kind of blew my mind. i love armaldo, its design, its moves are alright, that attack stat. it's pretty slow though, even if it does have access to rock polish. this though is really cool news

NINETALES - drought. i dunno, that just sounds epic. shared only by a /legendary/ how badass is that

ARCANINE - heart of justice. well it doesn't seem all that great, but the name is so cool and fitting for a dog. it's only useful for a physical arcanine, which most are, and i prefer attackers so it works out. kind..of. THE NAME IS JUST AMAZING

FLAREON - guts. this is a big one for me. i've been wanting to train a flareon for a while but it never really seemed to have anything big going for it. guts sound like it could be used with the facade strategy seen on other pokemon. sure you can always scream "BUT XYZ DOES IT SO MUCH BETTER!!!" i don't care, as long as flareon has something. i like quick attack too.

DITTO - eccentric. whoa you mean ditto doesn't have to waste a whole turn now??

SABLEYE - mischievous heart. this seems cool because i use mine as an annoyer. high priority confuse ray >:3

BLAZIKEN - speed boost. ok i don't want to train one i'm just throwing this out here because of loll whoa

Yessss I love politoed.

I had a skim over the dream world abilitiesa couple of days ago, and while a lot of the competitive implications are lost on me, there were a couple that made me go ooooooooooo~
BLASTOISE - rain dish. This plus leftovers could be amazing for my favoirite tortoise, rite?
(and on a similar note:)
POLITOED - drizzle. Pretty much for the same reason you mentioned Ninetales. Politoed=Kyogre now and it makes me giggle

I didn't look at the new pokemon's abilities, but people seemed quite excited by the chandelier getting shadow tag. I can see that being an evil combo with it's silly special attack if used correctly

...Why does Goldeen/Seaking have Lightningrod 8| I'm not a competitive battler, myself, but I forsee some of my fish being fried.

wow thanks for pointing that out. KIND OF HARSH, GAMEFREAK

I think it raises Special Attack excluding ground types but man, poor Goldeen/Seaking.

I think, could be wrong, but I'm sure I read it somewhere that in this gen, Lightningrod makes you immune to electric.
a miserable pile of secrets: [cn] fist shakehomestar on September 30th, 2010 08:27 pm (UTC)
That's how it works in the PMD games, at any rate-- all electric attacks go towards Pokemon with Lightning Rod, and it does nothing to them.

Suuuuucks if you're a Pikachu, ngl :[

Dream world abilities! * O * Blaziken with Speed boost, excelleeeeent.
And Absol gets Heart of Justice as well, lol.
And Milotic with Cute Charm? alkflksdfs.

Of course I'm only interested in the pokemon that I use lol
Meh:
Beedrill with Sniper. I was hoping for Technician or even Agility.
Cloyster with Dust Proof. Mmkay, sticking with Shell Armor kthnx.
Glalie with Inconsistent. lolnope.jpg
Urugamosu with Swarm. Sticking with Flame Body.

Excellent:
Shanderaa with Shadow Tag. OHOHOHOHO.
Crawdaunt with Adaptability. THIS WITH DRAGON DANCE, YESSSS.
Feraligatr with Encourage. I'm okay with this.
Cacturne with Water Absorb. Nice.

Ikr? Why would a Pikachu/Raichu need Lightingrod as an ability? >:| (Though it might be helpful in terms of competitions and it's with a flyer, still, other then that, no.) What about something that raises SP-ATK/DEF, or better yet, give it Motor Drive.
Sui Kune / スイ ・ クン: Raikou Sumi-esui_kune on September 30th, 2010 08:27 pm (UTC)
Actually, that's exactly what it does now. Takes the attack without taking any damage, and raises Special Attack I believe. :3

Roserade with Technician = effectively 135 power magical leaf that can never miss. :D

HOLY FUCK, SWIFT SWIM ARMALDO

kinda annoyed that my ratties get Hustle :| I'm really liking Rain Dish on Pelipper, though, and Poison Rampage on Zangoose and Cursed Body on Banette JUST SOUND AWESOME
zoe.: pkmn → they see me trollin'fade on September 30th, 2010 09:08 pm (UTC)
SABLEYE WITH MISCHIEVOUS HEART OH GOD. DX

I enjoy um. Water Absorb Lanturn will be luls, just to confuse people. 8) And GUTS LUXRAY IYAAA~N.
トラカカtorakaka on September 30th, 2010 10:20 pm (UTC)
I love Glaceon with Ice Body. I mean Snow Cloak was cool too, but I always have the Hail/Blizzard combo on her so this is win ^-^
Tekirai: legend of the north windtekiraboshi on September 30th, 2010 10:33 pm (UTC)
of course I now forget all of the cool new abilities dream world Pokemon can get

The only one I can remember is Technician Breloom. If you actually can breed and pass on the abilities as I seem to be reading, then you could get a False Swipe and Spore Breloom which will be heapz cool for pokemon catching. And then yeah there's Mach Punch boostin' but I think people are saying Poison Heal is a better ability for it anyway honk 8\)
Die Waffen - legt an!glenngunnerzero on September 30th, 2010 11:11 pm (UTC)
Poison Heal IS a much better ability competitive/trainer battle wise. Otherwise yeah Technician is the better Breloom for pokemon capturing.

...Flareon once again got shafted, as Guts is useless to it. If Flareon had gotten say, Wonder Guard or something, then maybe it'd be worthwhile. But as it is, poor Flareon just gets kicked in the stomach again. Nitro Charge won't really help it, either, as it has to last long enough to get the speed boost. There's still no physical priority Fire move. So...

I'm positive it's on purpose now, as Hydration is good on Vaporeon, Quick Feet is at least not terrible on Jolteon, Magic Mirror looks fantastic for Espeon, Inner Focus lets Umbreon be a great lead, Chlorophyll is a good alt for Leafeon, and Ice Body means a physical wall Glaceon may exist.

But Flareon really needs something better...
avroillusion: pokemonavroillusion on October 2nd, 2010 01:32 am (UTC)
Ninetales + drought = cool beans.

Politoed and Toxicroak can be best froggy friends in doubles. :3

Everyone's in love with speed boost Blaziken. I love Blaziken...but Infernape is still good right? No? I like Infernape, too...and all it gets is the punch boosting ability. Boo.

I wonder if Technician will make Breloom a suitable revenge killer as well as a sub puncher? Like Scizor...

If you give Flareon a Toxic Orb, it might be ok...but flash fire might've been much nicer.
