Revisions for Gen VI

November 12, 2013

I’m keeping it simple, updating based on the new items, moves and abilities and not doing anything groundbreaking.

Several pokemon have had base stats change–my stalliness implementation pulls in those changes for free.

Changes in move power have no bearing on the stalliness metric.

  • The abilities Dark Aura, Fairy Aura, Infiltrator,* Parental BondProtean, Strong Jaws, Sweet Veil and Tough Claws subtract 0.5 from the metric.
  • The abilities Aroma Veil, Bulletproof, Cheek Pouch and Gooey add 0.5 to the metric.
  • The ability Fur Coat adds 1.0 to the metric.
  • The move Crafty Shield does not affect the metric (as it does not prevent damaging moves).
  • The moves King’s Shield, Mat Block and Spiky Shield get added to Protect and Detect in the list of moves that, if present on a moveset, add 1.0 to the metric.
  • The move Nuzzle gets added to the other paralysis moves for adding 0.5 to the metric.
  • The moves Power-Up Punch and Rototiller gets added to the list of setup moves that subtract 0.5 from the metric (recall that multiple setup moves do not stack).
  • The move Geomancy gets added to the list of setup moves that subtract 1.0 from the metric.
  • The move Sticky Web subtracts 0.5 from the metric (since stall teams really won’t benefit from having the opponents’ speed lowered).
  • The item Assault Vest does not change the metric.
  • The items Kee Berry, Maranga Berry, Roseli Berry and Snowball get added to the list of “consumables” which subtract 0.5 from the metric.
  • The item Pixie Plate subtracts 0.25 from the metric.
  • The item Weakness Policy subtracts 1.0 from the metric.
  • The item Safety Goggles does not change the metric (“powder” moves are few and far between, and neutralizing weather is better accomplished with Leftovers)
  • Mega Stones, if held by the corresponding Pokemon, will result in stalliness being calculated as the AVERAGE of the metric under each form. That is, for Aerodactyl holding Aerodactylite, calculate stalliness once assuming it stays an Aerodactyl (old stats, old ability), then calculate again assuming Aerodactylite is used and it has the Mega forme’s stats and ability. Take those two values and average them (this is because Mega Evolution is not guaranteed and is in fact limited to one-per-team, even though a team may contain multiple Pokemon that can Mega evolve).
