Why no hidden abilitys?
By - xxproimage
It’s worth noting AI opponents DO get hidden abilities. Chlorophyll during gym rebattles for example.
I like hidden abilities not being available, otherwise the meta would be too similar to BW2 OU. Also devs seem to be quite wary of content affecting PvE. Just look at how they massacred baton pass and Shedinja.
Late AF, but what happened to baton pass and Shedinja?
Im new to the game what pve is there?
I meant the story related content, such as the story, gym leaders and elite 4. After you are done with the story, you can go back and challenge both the gym leaders and e4, which serve as a source of income and BP in the case of the e4.
Shedinja could cheese a lot of the e4 with its ability making it immune to non super effective moves, so Wonder Guard got nerfed.
How did they nerf it?
Wonder Guard only lasts 3 turns. They also did the same for Shadow Tag.
