Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

So, with the Fifth Generation, we got a few new things - improved wi-fi stuffs, moving sprites, and the Dream World. For now, let's focus on the dream world. This was an odd place, full of odd things to do. I must say...but what really attracted my attention were the Hidden "Dream World Abilities" abilities for existing Pokemon to have, e.g. Slowking getting Regenerator Technician Scizor, and much more!
So what did you think? Do you think DW Abilities are a waste of time? Or necessary in battle?
Discuss ^-^

I think the DW addition itself was a fun addition, and more specifically the hidden abilites themselves! Some really are a waste of time imo, like wanting to get a beldum with Light Metal for example. Some other are really great though. I like them in general because they give you an extra option on how you want to use your Pokemon in battle

DW abilities are pretty much a mixed bag for me. Some Pokémon really improved with their new abilities (Politoed, Ninetales, Dragonite, Blaziken, Venusaur), others find the new abilities as bonuses to their battle performance (Salamence, Breloom, Charizard, Infernape) and several find their DW abilities useless (Drapion, Delibird, Walrein).

I have to admit some of these abilities really changed the competitive scene a lot for some Pokemon, like Politoed getting Drizzle (which now makes it a staple in Rain teams), Breloom getting Technician (which gives it 90 BP Mach Punches!), Venusaur getting Chlorophyll (now a big threat on sun teams) and loads more!

However, I was not happy with Delibird's Hidden Ability though, because it functions exactly the same as another ability it has lol.

Some hidden abilities are awesome, some make even a Pokemon like Ditto with its low stats a real threat.

To competitive battle players, it's necessary.

Politoed and Ninetales can now summon permanent rain and sun respectively, making up for the absence of Kyogre and Groudon in OU.

Dragonite and Lugia can now wall attacks better with full HP.

Venasaur now finds its place in most sun teams.

Moxie makes Salamence an even bigger threat then it used to be, when its already notorious for firing monstrous Outrages and Draco Meteors.

Breloom's Technician boosts the power of Bullet Seed, however it cannot use Poison to its advantage anymore.

Thus, there are pros and cons of each Dream World ability

Naughty Nature Zekrom with 422 Attack stat and 252 Attack EVs traded from Pokemon White Version FTW!!!
