I can’t believe people are actually surprised at this news of an overhaul of stats being rebalanced.
This needs to happen moving forward. The game is too one sided as it is and it has been this way for too long now. Blissey is the only pokémon that is able to defend a gym. Think about that for a minute. Out of everything we have only blissey matters more. At any given time only 10% of the game is in favor of about 15 pokémon for top tier raids. There goes your shot at powering up your faves. Gym battling is a joke. Always in favor of who has 6 machamp against a gym with blissey, slaking, chansey and snorlax in it that way you can just muscle through and drop your blissey. Come on, guys. This couldn't have been a total shock. It's happened before and it needed to happen again.
The good thing about all of this is that more pokémon will finally have relevancy which will provide more content for us all. These are exciting times. I'm looking forward to waking up and seeing different CP levels of my pokémon when this all takes place. I'm a bit scared of what will happen but if it opens up the game and gives relevancy to more pokémon like kingler, absol, poliwrath, sandslash and hell even sudowoodo then I am on board. Bring the madness.
