Tell Me I'm A Screwed Up Mess
As far as I'm concerned, Gamefreak doesn't give two ****s about what happens to competitive battling. They've already created a bunch of power creep, what's stopping them from doing more?
Plus, an evolution doesn't have to have a HUGE BST increase. It could be 30 points or less even. Or even rework some of their other stats like the Magneton --> Magnezone 10 point speed drop.
