Gen8 changes

Recommended Posts

As we are all aware, gen 8 implemented a couple of new mechanics and updated moves/abilities.

Since somewhere over the rainbow, someone will have this discussion, I thought it would be nice to express what I think it should be added or not, based on MMO´s competitive scene.

Also, I might make this as detailed as possible, so to help in said discussion.

Disguise

  Hide contents


Users:  Zorua;  Zoroark 

Added effect: Now causes 1/8th Max Hit Point damage to the user when the disguise breaks.

 

This is wrong

Disguise change only concerns Mimikyu, Zorua and Zoroark abilities are named "Illusion"
