I don't mind Crunch really, given that it can lower defence...

I mean there's Foul Play, but ya. Even so, a stronger dark type move in NU would literally be quite terrible for psychic types. ;( So for competitive reasons I'm not really a fan of a stronger dark move. :x

But c'mon, lots of other types have 100+ power moves, so why can't Dark? Maybe an idea to keep NU balanced is only give it to the stronger Dark types like Darkrai, not that he needs any more moves haha.

Yeah, we need more strong Dark-type moves. I can only remember Dark Pulse and Crunch off the top of my head.

I'm also sure we're getting more elemental Hyper Beams and Quick Attacks.

Dark, and Ghost (not legend exclusive) need moves higher than 80 badly. Also I'll like to see a stat boosting move for those types like how Bug has Quiver Dance and Dragon has Dragon Dance, Steel has Automation, and Rock Rock polish.

Yes I did lol.
Now I want a physical version of Nasty plot. Also a better stat booster for electric than Charge...or maybe change Charge to up defense as well.

There's already Swords Dance. Not everything can use it, but still, it's something. Plus there's Hone Claws and Dragon Dance.

Also idt we'll get more Quick Attack type moves, I think the ones we have are already balanced-ish.

Only reason I wouldn't want a Raw 100+ BP attack for Dark attacks is, Dark attacks are underhanded tactics. They typically have a higher chance Secondary effect than other attacks. Some of the more lethal Dark Attacks double in power after specific requirements are met, usually this pushes the attack itself over 100 BP.

Dark Types don't need 100BP because of their nasty secondary effects. I would like more Dark Attacks similar to Punishment and Foul Play though. Maybe a more solid version of Beat Up as well.

I would love them to update Beat up again.
A fire type quick attack would be cool, it'll eliminate those annoying Scyzor's. They could give the move to Flareon too to give it a little something to make it more useful.
Also some special versions of quick attack would be nice.

We could expand Quick Attack clones for different types, but I can't think of a good name for the Electric type version.

Fire type Priority Move would stop Scizor. (Espcially if it was Special just like Vacuum Wave) [EDIT: <-I'm stupid and didn't read previous posts. I'm being redundant here]

Also Hydro Pump should be buffed (prolly 90 accuracy). It's crap compared to Fire Blast (disregarding typing).

I also hope there's no new battle format so there won't be stupid moves that only really apply to those formats (since no one really plays them). Who uses Ally Switch or Wide Guard ever?

A flying type stat boosting move that raises both speed and accuracy, cause I think that fits birds.

A physical Shadow Ball counterpart.

A special Earthquake counterpart.

More special rock type moves.

Priority moves for Grass and Fire types. If Aqua Jet is there, why isn't there any for Grass and Fire?

Priority Dark move, other than Sucker Punch. I don't think that's an effective priority move if it has decent BP but fails if the enemy does not attack.

Signature attacks for Chespin, Fennekin, and Froakie.

You know, I was just thinking, I'd like there to be more combination attacks. You remember the moves Fire Pledge, Grass Pledge, and Water Pledge, in which if you use two of those moves, an interesting effect occurs? I'd like more moves like that, except maybe for different types of moves?

I would not like more of them as they were pretty much just a BW gimmick that wasn't really embraced to its full extent. Outside of the special battles with the starters in them, they're just... weak and not really helpful. I don't think we really need more of them except to be fancy or something like that.

They can make them more viable to use though. =O They can make the new combo moves viable even in single competitive play.

Why don't we have Freezing moves with a Reasonable Accuracy ?! We have 100% accuracy moves that induce Sleep then why not Freeze ? There's not a lot of difference between the two Honestly. Highest freeze possibility is with Secret Power which is only 30%. Rest all are 10% or less. Blizzard's Freezing possibility should be increased .

Hmmm I'd be a fan of that Doronjo.

@ Freezing: Keep it as it is please. :( Freeze is the worst possible status and having a proper move to freeze Pokemon would be annoying. It's hard to explain but it... sucks. XD;

I'd like to see a decent physical fire move that flareon can learn.
Something like 85 base power with chance to burn.

But why ? It's not as bad as Sleeping. You can Thaw out.
"A frozen Pokémon can still use the moves Flame Wheel, Sacred Fire, Flare Blitz, Fusion Flare, and Scald while frozen; these moves will thaw the user, thaw the opponent if possible, and deal damage to the opponent" - Bulbapedia.

That's too Under powered with respect to Other Ailments.

Sleep and Poison are too darn OP in my Opinion. Spore, Yawn,Hypnosis,Lovely kiss,Sleep powder,Poison Gas,Toxic, Poison Powder. All these moves have ridiculous accuracy and a very High possibility to inflict Sleep/Poison.
