The Top TenXW
Um, guys! Feint goes through protect/other moves! Guess who can learn feint... Slaking himself! If you ask me, defeatist is the worst, cause you can cripple teams by swapping slow start onto them. Plus, no one expects feint!
It doesn't have any redeeming factors: It makes you immobile doing every other turn. The opponent can just use Protect every other turn and you can't do anything.
Um, this was made to balance Slaking. If he didn't have this, Norman's Slaking probably wouldn't be possible.
Just something that devalues good pokemon - DoggusV4 Comments
For FIVE whole turns you get decreased speed and attack! This is why Regigigas is an unpopular Pokemon. - LugiaLover87
At least with Truant, you can use recharge moves for that turn you miss. Slow Start on the other hand...
Slow start should be the worst ability because unlike truant it takes longer for you to attack. - trainerd6
Good way to ruin a perfectly good pokemonV4 Comments
My friend loves Archeops, I think I'll just use one surf and set up like 20 swords dances and then hit it when I'm bored
Doesn't do anything clutch, just harms you for getting hurt - DoggusV1 Comment
Slow Start and Truant are given to Pokemon that would be broken otherwise, but THIS is just bad. I mean, really bad. And I know, Payback, but that doesn't stop it from being terrible.
If paired with analytic, this may work greatly - Doggus
It just makes you go last like useing quash it's dumb and just horrible in any type of battle unless you use payback,revenge or avalanche
I voted only to say that it's not good, but not terrible. You know how many times I've battled Lopunny w/ Switcheroo Flame Orb/Iron Ball? Annoying.
You can not use the item equiptd to the Pokemon except mega stonesV2 Comments
Run away is an ability that lets you run away. That's pretty much it. This ability is worthless in battle and is just a waste of an ability slotV2 Comments
It makes encounter rate higher why would unless your are hunting shiny Pokemon?
No effect in battle, horribly annoying effect outside of battle. - EminemXLilKim
Boring unless looking for rares - Doggus
How is this bad? It ignores the godly magic bounce dual screen espeonV1 Comment
Weak Armor is mainly used by defensive Pokemon with barely any speed, this ability is so backwards that it turns a physical tank into a failure, Thus it should be higher.
This is actually a pretty good ability. Skarmory can troll with Guard Swap while keeping the Speed boost without keeping the Defense drop, and meanwhile, it can also force switches. It's also a pretty good ability on Vanilluxe. - EminemXLilKim
Truant is the worst in my opinion, but I voted Weak Armor to get it into the top ten.V3 Comments
It's supposed to prevent Self-Destruct and Explosion to work, so why would you use it in the first place? No Pokemon that can learn one of these moves has this abillity, so it just prevents damage if the enemy faints and has ONE SPECIFIC ABILLITY, from Physical attacks, - IHateDonaldTrump
Makes all abilities the Pokemon uses Normal-Type. This is useless as Normal is the worst of all types, being super effective against nothing. If it turned all moves into moves of a better type such as Ice, it may be better. Well, actually, it wouldn't, since your coverage is still pathetic. - EminemXLilKimV3 Comments
How is this bad? Helps scouting, which is great in competitive play. - EminemXLilKimV2 Comments
Who the heck put Wonder Guard on this list?V1 Comment
Why this is bad? Low kick and grass knot require weight to deal heavy damage, making this bad if you do not predict it - Doggus
Autotomize halves the weight, but wastes a move - DoggusV1 Comment
Honey is bad anyway, just use sweet scent.
Completely useless for competitiveV2 Comments
Completely useful for fast Pokemon in double battles use storm throwV1 Comment
Mega heracross can also learn arm thrust
Its actually not bad. mega heracross has it and can learn pin missile, bullet seed, and rock blastV2 Comments
No. It's actually a pretty useful ability to PP-Stall moves like Stone Edge. - EminemXLilKim
People couldn't think of an ability so they put this on legendaries. Not bad, but not good either.V1 Comment
