        Present is a fun move. Wish GFwould add more random effects like 10% to KO or 15% to freeze, thatd be rad.

          I always really liked how Burmy would change its appearance based on its environment and then if it was a female and it evolved, it would keep the appearance of it's previous evolution permanently and get a secondary typing and set of attacks based on its appearance.

          I thought it was a very interesting gimmick for providing a significant amount of variety to a small evolutionary family.

            deerling and Sawsbuck's seasonal formes. winter was always my favourite but they all have their own charm to them. they're all still available from certain locations in some games but no longer will the seasons change and their forme along with it.

            Now when you say "gimmick"... are we talking specifically about in battle, such as an ability, move or item unique to this pokemon?

            Or can we discuss anything about a pokemon that might be considered gimmicky? Let's say a unique method of evolution or a set of requirements that need to be met in order for this Pokemon to appear in the wild?

              Ditto's Transform! I finally got to use a Ditto in Sun, and I just had the most fun siccing my opponent's Pokemon on them. It made me happy seeing those strange sprites fighting loyally beside my character, and coming up with a technique using four completely new moves...I wanted to use Ditto all the time! It even helped me defeat the Totem Mimikyu. :)

                  I think Eevee's several evolution methods also qualify under that category

                      Honestly? Pyukumuku's Innards Out. That surprised the hell out of me the first time I ran across it. I couldn't stop laughing. I hadn't been surprised like that since Shedinja.

                      Zoroark. I love the idea of this Pokemon. Its fun yet creepy. While its cool watching Zoroark masquerade as another Pokemon in your party and you definitely want to use its unique ability to your advantage to entrap your opponent, its a Pokemon I like because it's not utterly dependent on its ability. It can still be of use once its illusion is broken. Underrated Pokemon in my opinion.

                        My favorite gimmick is probably Chatot's Chatter- in Generation IV, of course. So gimmicky, it had to be banned. It's a pretty silly and fun-to-use quirk of Chatot.

                        Shedinja for me ^^ Suddenly a new pokémon in my party??? And nothing can hit it! Until oops it died. It's a really cool idea that forces you to think carefully at times but go all out other times.

                        There's a poison gimmick on someone, right? I remember thinking there was a cool one, but I'm a total loss for what it actually was right now.
