PokeBase Battle Subway Meta-PokeBase Q&A

Are we allowed to hide bad movesets?

6 votes

I know we are allowed to hide them if they are the same as another or have moves that they can not learn, but can we hide movesets that just plain stink? Like Gyrados: Hydro-pump, Surf, Strength, and Hail. They do not contribute to the moveset page at all, if we got rid of them it would make the place look cleaner. Obviously some sets are better than others but only getting rid of the obviously terrible sets. There has been a bit of debate about this before and I would like to know whether or not we should hide them?

V



OH I know a good set for Serperior!
Item: Black-sludge
Ability: Contrary
Nature: Brave

Coil, Calm-mind, Swords-dance, and Mega-drain.

I agree people may come on this site and look for move sets then go to smogon because some of our old ones are badly set out, such as lots of answers say stuff like maybe add power whip or just plain bard move sets.
It would take a while but I think that all move sets should have evs, nature, item,all moves, ability and ivs if needed.
One of the worst I've seen
____
Scrafty has to have the ability Moxie
Item Wide Lens
Hi Jump Kick (Powerful move for kills and raise attack for moxie)
Focus Blast(Back up move for Hi Jump Kick)
Crunch( Lowers Defense for Stronger Moves)
Low Sweep ( Lower Speed to take advantage of battle)

Hold Item Zoom Lens so HI Jump Kick and Focus Blast will hit easier so you can kill opponents easily and raise moxie trait and win battles, good for Battle Subway

Pokemaster, please make it "legal" to hide plain-bad movesets, not just ones that violate rules.
I would deff say yes. Just for sets that are just plain... bad, though.
.....  
THAT IS A HORRIBLE MOVESET.  Black Sludge? Really?
That was the idea. It was an example of a bad moveset.
Yeah. I know. (One of my friends had no idea what black sludge does and created a moveset similar to this.  XD)
I must disagree to this.
If it is a bad moveset, it gets downvoted. Simple.
We shouldn't hide it as long it doesn't break the rules or include illegal moves that that Pokemon can learn.
I say any moveset is okay, as long as it follows rules and all ^
The point is, they contribute nothing to the question and make the site look like it is full of inexperienced people.
the worst ive seen is this=
beartic.
nature adment
item:macho brace: mega kick(he cant even learn it)
dragon pulse!!
fire punch
slash(ok slash was kind of a good idea but in the end i hid it)

Anything that is obviously really bad, then yes please hide it.

Note if something is slightly unusual (say, two Water attacking moves) then it would be OK if the person gives a reason. So in those cases post a comment asking for explanation.

Don't forget, for people without the hiding privilege, that you can vote down bad posts.
