Hi, all! So this is a game I saw on some subreddit some time ago, and I thought that it would be appropriate to post it here.

The Rules of The Game:
  • Remove either one or two letters (or characters) from a Pokémon-related term. The terms can be Moves, Items, Abilities, Areas - whatever you can think of that is Pokémon related.
  • Make sure that your new term (the one with letters removed) makes some kind of sense. For example, removing the "a" from "Tackle" results in "Tckle", which doesn't really mean anything.
  • Once you're done, add a description to your new term. Keep in mind that if you changed an item, your new term should be an item still, and so on. You can go into more detail such as typing for moves and Pokémon, but it's not required.

The Rules of The Thread:
  • Only one idea per post, please! This keeps things fresh and encourages everyone to come back!
  • I will update the first post (this one) with compilations of everyone's ideas, so please check to make sure you aren't repeating something that someone else said! But keep in mind that you can use the same base word as someone else as long as you remove different letters!


Examples:
  • "Mewtwo -> Mewt. This new Pokémon is basically Mewtwo except it can't talk."
  • "Spite -> Spit. The Pokémon kind of just spits on its opponent."
  • "Flame Body -> Lame Body. This Pokémon can't walk or use any kicking attacks."
  • "Nest Ball -> Net Ball. Wait, isn't this already an item? Crap."

Compilation of ideas:
Spoiler:
Pokémon:
  • Mewtwo -> Mewt. This new Pokémon is basically Mewtwo except it can't talk.
  • Quilladin -> Illadin. A Pokemon that suffers from a certain flu and can barely fight. Evolves from Chespin at level 16 on an icy route.
  • Absol -> Abs. The manliest Pokémon in existence.
  • Spearow -> Pearo. Basically an O-shaped pear :o.

Items:
  • Nest Ball -> Net Ball. Wait, isn't this already an item? Crap.
  • Good Rod -> God Rod! The ultimate fishing rod of all — it can even fish out Egyptian Gods Legendary Pokémon from thin air! Pretty handy, huh?
  • Super Rod -> Sup Rod! This rod actually fishes out humans instead of Pokémon. If you say "sup" to anyone caught by this rod, they will become your new best friend!
  • White Herb -> Wit Herb. Effect: Boosts user's wit. Consumed after use.
  • Life Orb -> Lie Orb. Enables the holder to trick, taunt, and/or torment every Pokémon regardless of their Ability.
  • Mach Bike -> Mac Bike.
  • Dive Ball -> Die Ball. If you happen to catch a Pokémon in this ball... well, just don't. Please.

Moves:
  • Spite -> Spit. The Pokémon kind of just spits on its opponent.
  • Wing Attack -> Win Attack. Using this move automatically wins you the battle.
  • Fury Attack -> Fur Attack! Hits twenty times, with each hit doing 1 damage! FACE THE WRATH OF MY FUR.
  • Ice Burn -> Ice Urn. The user creates a vase-like object out of ice for others to admire.
  • Close Combat -> Lose Combat. It's the opposite of Win Attack. After use you kind of just...lose the battle.
  • Dragon Claw -> Dragon Law. A Dragon-type lists a bunch of rules and if they are broken, you are sent to the dungeon.
  • Beat Up -> Eat Up. The Pokémon and its entire team devour its opponent like a snack.
  • Earth Power -> Ear Power. The Pokémon uses its ears to uh...do damage or something.
  • Hyper Voice -> Hype Voice! This attack gets Trist—I mean, everyone super hyped for no particular reason. :D
  • Gunk Shot -> Gun Shot. Yeah, the Pokémon just pulls out a firearm and shoots its opponent.
  • Fire Punch -> Fire Pun. The Pokemon drops a sick-ass pun. It's... super effective?
  • Ice Beam -> I Beam. The user throws an I-shaped girder at the opponent.
  • Dragon Rage --> Drag Rage. It's like a drag race, only 10x angrier.
  • Steam Eruption -> Team Eruption. User calls its teammates from a volcano to aid it in battle.
  • Trick -> Rick.
  • Bubble Beam -> Buble Beam. User blasts Michael Buble music at the opponent. May cause them to sing along.
  • Dragon Pulse -> Dragon Pus. Ewwww...it's green...
  • Role Play -> Roe Pay. User attempts to bribe opponent with fish eggs.
  • Flamethrower -> Famethrower. It literally throws away your fame.
  • Stealth Rock -> Steal Rock. Hazard removal?
  • Fire Fang -> Fire Fan. Must be a trainer class of people who really like the Fire type. (Also known as pyromaniacs.)

Abilities:
  • Flame Body -> Lame Body. This Pokémon can't walk or use any kicking attacks.
  • Huge Power -> Hug Power. Hugs have never been so... powerful. Totally not Bewear's real ability.
  • Heavy Metal -> Heavy Meal. If this Pokémon gets eaten, its eater will have digestion problems.
  • Light Metal -> Lit Metal. All Steel-type moves used by the user will become Fire-type.
  • Cursed Body -> Cursed B.O. The Pokémon who has this ability smells really, really bad.
  • Bulletproof -> Bullproof. This Pokemon's body can't be penetrated by bulls.
  • Stall -> Tall. This Pokémon is above its species' average height.
  • Skill Link -> Kill Link. Effect: User accomplishes what Ganondorf never could.
  • Big Pecks -> Big Pecs. Effect: User never skips chest day.
  • Cursed Body -> Cured Body. This Pokemon's body is completely healthy.
  • Adaptability -> Apt Ability. A quite fitting ability for the Pokémon.
  • Bulletproof -> Bulletpoof. Where'd the bullet go? It just went "poof" and now it's gone!

Others:
  • Team Galactic - > Team Lactic. An evil team that steals Miltank from local farmers and ranchers.
  • Pokemon Red Version -> Pokemon Ed Version. A game in the world of Ed, Edd, and Eddy. Time to wear the punishment hat, ed-boys.
  • Mt. Blaze -> Mt. Laze. A mountain where many lazy Pokemon live, and most of the time, they sleep.



Let's go!

Why don't we make the game so that one person posts a Pokemon related term, and then the next person removes two letters from it and posts a new Pokemon related form for the next person? Like this:

Poster 1: Shadow Ball
Poster 2: Show Ball. The user shows a ball to the opponent, then throws it. Light Metal
Poster 3: Lit Metal. All Steel-type moves used by the user will become Fire type.
etc.

Yeah it's a good idea, but someone could just completely bone someone else by typing "Cut" or "Fly" or something.

Also this thread is probably going to be different from other games, because it's more geared towards finding funny terms rather than lasting forever.

Oops I was ninja'd, but I do agree with you! Classic's idea also makes perfect sense, but it might be a little harder to be creative that way, you know? I think this thread could work fine the way it is right now. :D

Yup, definitely agree. Creativity is key here.

I'm going to add this:

Heavy Metal -> Heavy Meal. If this Pokémon gets eaten, its eater will have digestion problems.

The Yu-Gi-Oh references were fun while they lasted, haha. Oh, and it looks like I can't summon three Dragons in the same turn now. xD

Absol -> Abs. The manliest Pokémon in existence.

Beat Up -> Eat Up. The Pokémon and its entire team devour its opponent like a snack.

Also Important:
I've been thinking about disallowing things like:
- Slugma -> Slug.
- Tepig -> Pig.
And so on. It just seems really boring to revert Pokémon to the animal/whatever that they're based on.
Thoughts?

Hmm, I actually think reversions like those could still be okay! The name might not be creative, but I'm sure someone can totally come up with a witty description for those! I can't immediately think of an example at the moment, but if I were to revert "Tepig" to "Pig," I would most likely crack a joke at how unoriginal it sounds, just like Krabby's Japanese name. xD The descriptions are a huge part of the fun, after all!

Oh, and Krabby's Japanese name is literally "Crab," ahaha.

Ok, I see your point. I guess I'll keep it like that. Personally I thought the descriptions would be "Slugma -> Slug. Wow, it's just a slug" every single time.

Also,

Earth Power -> Ear Power. The Pokémon uses its ears to uh...do damage or something.

Adding to the sound theme...

Hyper Voice -> Hype Voice! This attack gets Trist—I mean, everyone super hyped for no particular reason. :D
