PostSubject: Changes in Sun & Moon   Sun Dec 11, 2016 12:52 pm

I thought it would be useful to provide a brief summary of notable changes this generation. However, I'll only list new/retconned abilities, changes to some gameplay mechanics, and new moves learned by old pokémon. For the base stat changes or new abilities/moves, you can check them on serebii.

But feel free to add things that I've missed on this list and are nevertheless noteworthy.

===============
OLD POKEMON WITH NEW ABILITIES

now gains Slush Rush as one of its regular abilities
loses Levitate for Cursed Body

Entei = loses HA Flash Fire for HA Inner Focus (though currently unreleased)
Suicune = loses HA Water Absorb for HA Inner Focus (though currently unreleased)
Raikou = loses HA Volt Absorb for HA Inner Focus (though currently unreleased)
now gains Sand Stream as one of its regular abilities (Weak Armor --> Sand Stream)
now gains Drizzle as one of its regular abilities (Hydration --> Drizzle)
 now gains Drought as one of its regular abilities
 now gains Snow Warning as one of its regular abilities (Snow Cloak --> Snow Warning)

===============
OLD POKEMON WITH NEW MOVES

 learns Quiver Dance
learns Quiver Dance
learns Dragon Dance
learns Air Slash
learns Swords Dance & Jump Kick
learns Hurricane
learns Moonblast
learns Roost
learn Burn Up as an Egg Move

===============
CHANGES TO OLD MOVES/ABILITIES/MECHANICS

-ate abilities (Pixilate, Aerilate) = x1.2 (from x1.3)
Dark Void = 50% accuracy, can now exclusively be used by Darkrai, fails when used by Smeargle
Ally Switch = +2 Priority (from +1)
Gale Wings = Priority Flying-type moves only take effect when at full health
Diamond Storm = 50% chance to raise defense by one stage AND 50% chance to raise defense by two stages
Leech Life = 80 BP (from 20)
Sucker Punch = 70 BP (from 80)
Mystical Fire = 75 BP (from 65)
Water Shuriken = Special (from Physical)
Burn (Scald/Will-O-Wisp) = does 6% damage
Mega Evolution = stat changes are immediately applied on the turn it mega evolves
(e.g. Beedrill gains the speed buff immediately after mega evolving, no need for Protect)
Pranskter = Prankster-boosted moves do not have an effect on Dark-type Pokémon, including moves called by Assist

Bash, this is a phenomenal thread, and one that will be moved to the discussion area once we get the rest of the breeding project done. Thank you so much for this.

Also, something we should consider is the new z move mechanics for some support moves. One of the more notable is Porygon Z, and z conversion. There are several others.
