    If only they fixed the ice type by using the fixes proposed in an iconic wideo by world champ and universally praised youtubist Wolfe Glick

      Some of the suggestions were decent but some didn't make any sense like how ice should be super effective to water - with that same logic fire should also be super effective to water.

      @ExiledBowser I mean... he's just being a contrarian. Being inflammatory is literally the only thing that has ever kept his channel alive, whether it be through being a contrarian, through deliberately starting drama and then playing victim, or just his personality.
      He's deliberately gone against public opinion on every switch pokemon game, with the possible exception of BDSP since as far as I'm aware he hasn't made any videos stating his opinion on it post-release. He's never changed his stance post-release before, though, so it's likely that he would stand by his claims of it being a "perfect pokemon game", which definitely goes against public opinion.

    I think another important question would be "Is a Terrastalized Pokemon still treated as its base typings in regards to weather?" This only applies to Sandstorm and Hail but if it does this is a massive boon to sandstream/snow warning mons, moreso if Ice-types gain a defense boost to mirror Rock-type's spdef boost.

    • Enrique III el Laberíntico
      Enrique III el Laberíntico 4 months ago +2

      @Pi Xi but only Ice is immune to it, making your team options less varied if you don't want to constantly lose HP.

    • Pi Xi
      Pi Xi 4 months ago

      The Defense boost is no good idea. Hail also increases the accuracy of Blizzard and allows to use Aurora Veil.

    • Pi Xi
      Pi Xi 4 months ago +1

      This question is also interesting, because many types have certain immunities, like Electric and paralysis, Ground and Thunder Wave, Ghost and trapping, Grass and powder moves, Dark and Prankster, Poison or a Steel and Toxic...

      @William Sun Yeah, I believe every mon that summons weather matches the type, with a few ground-type exceptions.

  • JonThunder12
    JonThunder12 5 months ago +231

    I know this episode is based on ice types, but I had similar thoughts about some other Pokémon. First thing I thought of was Typhlosion that is terra grass with flash fire. Water and ground become resisted and rock turns neutral. Meanwhile it’s new weakness to fire is actually an immunity thanks to flash fire, bug and ice want nothing to do with an eruption coming from Typholsion, leaving you to only worry about flying and poison which can be easily handled

    • Aquilenne
      Aquilenne 4 months ago

      ​@CrazyQuilman157 Charizard is still popular because of the sheer power it has in the sun, not because it's an a great bulky pokemon.
      Take away Solar Power from its statline and give it Flash Fire and it would go back to obscurity. Coverage is nice, but it's the sheer power that makes it good. I feel like what'll probably end up working out best for it is would actually be terrastalising fire.
      Between Sun, double STAB, Choice Specs and Solar Power its fire moves would be hitting for 6.75 times the basic damage so that as long as its partner is chosen to catch popular immunities it could just click fire moves.

    • CrazyQuilman157
      CrazyQuilman157 4 months ago

      @Aquilenne See, you say that, but Charizard is still popular, despite having an arguably worse typing and the exact same Stat block. Kinda goes to show how important good coverage is.

    • JonThunder12
      JonThunder12 5 months ago +2

      @Aquilenne not denying the bulk problem, but it was an immediate thought I had mainly because I want an excuse to use him. Also unless Heatran is available right off the bat, we probably won’t see him until a year plus into S/V. It’ll be fun to mess around and see what works and how.

    • DragN_H3artドラゴンハート
      DragN_H3artドラゴンハート 5 months ago +6

      @LoudWaffle that's the issue I see with most of the gimmicks GF introduced
      aside from Megas, which gave boosts to specific Pokemon (which theoretically they could've used to boost up all the weak mons even if that didn't really happen), all the systems they added are just power multipliers, so a weak mon becomes good, but you also have the opportunity cost of having to give up making a good mon broken

    • LoudWaffle
      LoudWaffle 5 months ago +11

      @Aquilenne This is a general problem I see with the system; everything it offers to weaker pokemon, it also offers to pokemon which are already strong.

  • A Bashari
    A Bashari 5 months ago +314

    I think that if Araquanid is in the game it will be really interesting because of Water Bubble - it could theoretically Tera Water and then have insane water damage, or could also Tera Steel (for example) to cover for all of it's base weaknesses and would still only take neutral damage from Fire type moves.

    • Truitt Wilbur
      Truitt Wilbur 4 months ago

      I'm surprised he didn't include Arceus-Ice, it can get ice type judgement with a different better defensive type

    • Mike G

      Why wouldn’t it take super effective damage from fire if araquanid Tera’s into a steel type

    • Kev95
      Kev95 5 months ago +1

      @Thicc Boi The whole pokedex leaked for the base game, so Araquanid is very likely to not be in the base game. It could be in the DLCs, but we'll have to wait and see.

    With every video I see on terastilizing, I’m seeing so many possibilities. I wasn’t a fan of this gimmick at first, but now I think it’ll breath new life into Pokémon with poor typing. VERY excited for this one!

    • barcster2003
      barcster2003 5 months ago

      It's defintely a good mechanic. I like all the options it opens.

    • CS
      CS 5 months ago +4

      @JayC I, like many others, assumed that the original typings would be replaced and remove STAB. Sure, I can change Tyranitar's typing to ghost, but is it really going to help if I don't have any ghost moves to truly take advantage? Especially now that dark and rock STAB no longer applied. The news that the new typing is defensive and offensive in addition to keeping the original STAB is huge. Take it easy.

    • JayC
      JayC 5 months ago +1

      If you couldn't see the possibilities of changing a Pokemon into ANY of the 18 types before, then I doubt you were paying attention to anything besides how the gimmick looked.

      @joshua kim A lot of the "meta" mons though are meta due to their typings though. There's lots of Pokemon with great movesets/abilities/stats but horrendous typings that just ruin their viability. So changing that.. we'll see at least some new threats for sure.

    • Dont Misunderstand
      Dont Misunderstand 5 months ago

      @sirpibble Typing doesn't change stats. Steel still has weaknesses. Transforming into a type your opponent knows you're about to transform into is a death sentence. If they know you're going to become Steel type before their attack lands, they'll just use a type that's super effective on Steel. So your better play then because to see that they think you're going to become Steel type, and instead become a type that resists or is immune to the weaknesses of Steel type. Which in turn makes their best play, noticing that, to predict which weakness of steel they'll try to resist and instead swap to a type that is super effective on that type which resists one of steel's weaknesses.
      The benefit of this system is that all types become useful, because the entire system is centered around being unpredictable.

      @PurplePUNKin Yes assuming his numbers are correct 2(stab) * 1.5(specs)* 1.5(terra) = 4.5 and because it raises by 50% it’s multiplicative now terra might not be 1.5x but if it is then yea 4.5 times damage for normal moves on porygon-z with choice specs

    • breloommaster12
      breloommaster12 5 months ago +7

      This is why Protean Greninja was regarded as one of the best "Ice-types"; it got to keep the benefits of STAB Ice moves while not actually staying as an Ice-type throughout the game.

    • Ducky Momo

  • WearingGoldluck
    WearingGoldluck 5 months ago +2

    I think Ground Type Abomasnow is low-key a great choice, not many resistances but it would flip it to a hard counter to most of its normal counters and its natural stabs cover its new weaknesses to Water and Grass.

  • Sekai Hunter
    Sekai Hunter 5 months ago +3

    Tera Ghost Weavile is actually very interesting. Weavile has Shadow Claw, which is a Ghost move that can benefitted from the Tera Ghost. It turns Weavile into a major Fighting bait, similar to Ghost T-Tar, but it also remove lots of other weaknesses. Weavile actually has very decent Special Defense as well, so utilize Terastralize defensively really make it even better than it already is.

  • Voerman
    Voerman 5 months ago +270

    I have a feeling that the VGC for S&V is going to absolute mad max levels of chaos, unless you can see what a specific pokemon can terra into prior to a match. The sheer amount of potential thought that has to go into thinking of all the options would leave even the most hardened VGC veteran into burnout within the first season.

    • Ducky Momo
      Ducky Momo 4 months ago

      @yeen not true sure some types are better than others but there no guarantee it will be meta
      Or what if a Pokémon has 5 different known options?

    • l
      l 5 months ago +1

      @missingno miner Dynamax made VGC very fun and unique. It gave a lot of Pokémon a lot of relevance when they otherwise likely wouldn't.
      Arguable that it's broken in Singles, since Smogon's singles meta deviates a little too much from the official singles format. They just didn't want with how decentralizing it is, even though that's generally a good thing. I am confident they will do the same thing with Terastilization for the same reason.

    • missingno miner
      missingno miner 5 months ago

      @l Dynamax... wasn't fun though, especially in singles. Definitely the right call to ban it.

  • Shanley Wheeler
    Shanley Wheeler 5 months ago +9

    I wonder what bug type Pokémon will also become way more viable. I know Wolfey has mentioned Electric type Shedinja before and Frosmoth in this vid, but there’s so many bug types that would likely benefit from terastallizing

    • barcster2003
      barcster2003 4 months ago

      @Dont Misunderstand there's also possible reasons to not want to be weak to flying, fire and rock. they could pick up offensive type they prefer as well

    • Dont Misunderstand
      Dont Misunderstand 5 months ago

      The Bug typing itself isn't bad. It's the stats of the pokemon that happen to have that typing that are bad. Its overall defenses are average, and it resists both fighting and ground, which are extremely good offensive typings. Terastalizing only helps pokemon that are bad because of the type chart itself.

    • Istoki Psy
      Istoki Psy 5 months ago

      Flying/Ground Yanmega, Poison/Elec/Fairy Venomoth, Water/Ground Volcarona, Ground/Fairy Scolipede, Water Masquerain, etc...There's some good Tera options for Bug types out there. Someone else mentioned Steel Araquanid already.

  • Raven Stires
    Raven Stires 5 months ago +124

    I think Teratilized Adaptability PorygonZ would be a giga threat since it can take advantage of a crazy special spread. Discharge, Psychic, Dark Pulse, Tbolt, Ice Beam, Blizzard. Shadow Ball strikes me as a big one because if it has option to go Ghost Tera for it's counters while keeping Adaptability Hyper Beam in it's back pocket this thing can be a Sp. Atk menace.

    BonusWolfe is the best. I loved the early WolfeyVGC wideos and your departure from candid content to a focus on scripted videos made the content harder to watch as a competetive VGC player.

    Myhairhasamindofitsown 5 months ago +10

    This is something that've been thinking about, since Terastal was anounced along Cetitan. Like, you terastalize the whale to steel type and you go from all the ice type weakneses to three, and one of them can be neutralized with Thick Fat.

    • Autobot Starscream
      Autobot Starscream 5 months ago +2

      Or Terastalize to Dragon and the other type that Thick Fat resists neutralizes a weakness instead, and instead of Heavy Slam gaining STAB, it becomes Fairy-crushing, Ice-breaking coverage in addition to Dragon Tera Blast and Ice-type STABs countering opposing Dragons.

    would love to see the strats with abilities like storm drain, lightning rod, flash fire, sap sipper etc. for example you could change ur type so that the ability covers the weaknesses. Of course wonder guard is gonna be banned in this game but these could work like a watered down version of it. my original thought was something like a raichu with lightning rod terastylising into a water type if your using a rain team or kyogre. not to mention ally switch, if you think youll get hit by something just switch to activate the ability

    Talking about rotom frost it's really interesting because it brings you back to the gen 4 meta. I was doing some off research a few tears back for my favorite gen. And there was a competitive ranking list for rotoms. The interesting bit was rotom frost was like top 3 or best, because how it worked back in the day iirc is that they didn't gain a second type. They stayed as an electric ghost type so its interesting how this could be a like a homage

    For years I've been wishing Articuno (my favorite pkm) would have been better in competitive scene, so immediatly I learned how this mechanics work, I'm waiting for the Tera Ground which would turn the x4 Rock weakness to a x2 resistance, inmunity to Electric and gaving it STAB againts ALL the types that normally destroy it :3

  • TigerKing 329

    These videos make me excited to see how competitive will turn out in these games. I wonder if every Pokemon will be able to be any Tera type, or if it'll be somewhat restrained. We know the event Pikachu for buying the game early is Flying and I think they said you can't normally obtain that in game, so I think there will be some limits.
    Edit: Any can be any tera type. Wish me luck on my essay due today I got l/4 pages done lol

      @Tom oh yeah ive talked about that one already. so many multipliers its disgusting lol. another is normal tera punk rock choice specs toxtricity with boomburst. 140BP move.

      Yessir. Tera Fairy Choice Specs Pixilate Sylveon Hyper Voice. 90 BP Normal type move. That's like 1.5x STAB, presumably (not certain) 1.5x for Tera same type, 1.2x Pixilate, 1.5x Choice Specs. And it has 110 base SpAtk. That's going to be one hella strong hyper voice. lol

    I feel like you could make a super similar video about Bug Type. Dual type bugs are getting a huge buff with this, like Araquanid, Scizor, Volcarona, etc. A Pokémon like Steel Tera Scizor gets a massive increase in potential by dropping bug defensively.

    I think Arctozolt could be an even better Arctovish. As you stated with Rotom-F, BoltBeam is really strong offensively, which with Electric Tera would lead to some absolutely bonkers Bolt Beaks.

      it'd be trading off a terrastalization though, since Ice is the worst defensive type, so you'd never terra into it. This'd be wasting a chance at actually making use of terrastalization, only for a hidden power replacement

    So many different things come to mind with terra-types. Strong pokemon with x4 weaknesses get a huge buff (Tyranitar and Garchomp come to mind), Pokémon with vast type coverage can become even stronger (Arcanine, Stoutland, Elektross). Similar to dynamax I feel this gimmick will give us lots of variety of teams, specially early on.

    I actually was thinking about it, there might be more but I found out that Water/Bug resists the combination of ground, ice, and fighting using a bit of brain power.

    • joshua kim
      joshua kim 5 months ago

      Frosmoth will probably end up being relegated to more defensive roles due to GF giving it such as horrendously lacking movepool (why, GF, why?), especially since its so slow that attempting a Quiver Dance play makes it way too committed to ever switch out, which wouldn't be hard to do by just plopping down any Steel type to abuse that ridiculously bad movepool. RIP Hidden Power.

    • Frogstar
      Frogstar 5 months ago +1

      I'll probably mess around with a rock type one with sandstorm for fun. Maybe weakness policy, or leftovers. Would mainly be a 'oh so you only have special attackers left huh' type win condition, or Vs teams with lots of special attackers.
      So imagine frosmoth will remain niche overall or require some team planning around physical threats, because of its speed and physical defences.
      But at least it should be able to function as a special wall as intended this gen.

    On the topic of Levitate Pokemon that can Terrastalize into Electric, the Eon Twins can also do this along with Weezing (though I get the feeling it will be using Neutralizing Gas all the time). As far as restricted mons go, we now have a 150/100/100 bulk monster that has the option of having no type-chart weaknesses with a very good terrablast or boosting its already amazing offensive STABs to 2.7x (with Griseous Orb factored in) and removing much of its type-chart weaknesses. This whole mechanic is going to be really interesting to work with.

  • Sleepy

    I can see terra types being also used as a deterrent for pokemon that want to ruin your set-ups with moves like toxic, spore, thunder wave by changing it to be immune to it. Although it might be too gimmicky to pull off most times.

    I'd be really interested in hearing your opinion on how this effect weather teams. I know you went into hail a bit in this, but it would be cool to get a bigger breakdown from you.
    Rain is typically a hyper offensive strategy, but it seems like terrastilization could allow rain to slow down a bit when things aren't going right. You've mentioned spread moves like water spout which is huge, but I also think Kingdra could be an interesting Pokemon to look at. It has pretty good defensive stats for an offensive pokemkn and shifting it to something like steel could be cool in a pinch. Especially since rain gets rid of one of its weaknesses AND fairy is one of the two counters to kingdra. Kingdra has been a special sweeper for a while now, but maybe we could see dragon dance physical builds that focus on defensive stats? On top of that, if they change to sandstorm to counter, kindgra could make use of the extra defensive stats.
    I only bring up Kingdra because it's my favorite mon and I always include it in rain, but it seems like the depth of weather teams is getting much larger

    dual water/bug is the only type combo that naturally resists all three of ground, ice and fighting (from the mamoswine segment). plus the volcarona and the aegislash lines could do on a technicality, since they get magnet rise as egg/tutor moves respectively. might be missing something

  • Guillermo Fernández
    Guillermo Fernández 5 months ago

    The only issue I see with hail setups, and it may have been something already addressed: When you terastalize, do you *lose* the hail resistance that ice type naturally grants you? Is it something that we will have to test? Because for what it seems, you retain the STAB bonus, but you don't retain the weaknesses. Does that mean hail will start hurting terastalized mons?

  • appledingdong
    appledingdong 5 months ago

    I think the counter-meta tera types are going to be fun to play with. For example, if abomasnow is on the field, and due to the meta your opponent assumes you've got a water tera type, they might hard read your terastellize and switch in an electric type which would take neutral damage from all the STABs, then hit for super effective STAB. But if the abomasnow is tera ground... then you've countered the counter. Since only 1 mon terastellizes each battle, having unusual tera types on some mons that you might not be targeting for terastellization could be a fun trap card to play with.

  • Lawrence Baker

    Weavile was one I also picked out. Not because of it's poor defensive typing but more it's movepool and lack of strong STAB moves. Adding a third offensive type should help it immensely with it's good stat spread.

    Hey Wolfe, love the vid! Just wanted to point out that Tera Rock w/ Rock Slide might be even better for Mamoswine offensively, as Mamoswine's only real completely safe switch-ins are Bugs and Bronzong. Obviously you still can't hit Bronzong for SE damage, but that's really the only thing that would wall you. Alternatively, if you're really scared of Bronzong/other Steels, you could also go Tera Fire with Tera Blast, which also gives you perfect neutral coverage and lets you hit even Physically Defensive Bronzong hard.
    For reference (+1 boost is meant to replicate STAB bonus, Fire Lash is 80 BP like Tera Blast):
    +1 252+ Atk Life Orb Mamoswine Fire Lash vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Bronzong: 244-289 (72.1 - 85.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

  • Wash Your Hands
    Wash Your Hands 5 months ago +2

    Ice and Ground coverage hitting neutral on essentially everything was a big problem in the last season on Pokemon Go competitive because of our good friend walrein. The only typing that resists both without any abilities or special cases is Bug/Water. So Surskit, Dewpider, Araquinid, Wimpod and Golisopod. Araquinid has been very useful for this and Golisopod shows some promise but just needs some slightly stronger moves to find its feet.

    For frosmoth, I see terra dragon as something that could be pretty good. Ice and terra blast dragon take care of opposing dragons, and the ability makes it so fairy isn't as good, since most fairy types run special. And for ice, I'm sure there's something that frosmoth can do to deal super effective damage.

  • Alvin the average gamer
    Alvin the average gamer 5 months ago +1

    Imagine changing an ice type into a STEEL type. You would still get ice STAB and the offensive super effective hits- grass, flying etc while having the (at least in tera blast) the offence of steel type and the defences of the steel type. What I think makes this even better is that if your tera blast is steel that is super effective on fairy ( arguably the best type in the game as of now) while having ice being super effective on dragon types ( arguably the best type before fairy came along to ruin its day). Which means with the use of tera blast, ice might literally be the best type ( atleast if it terrastalises into a steel type). Anyone reading, do you agree or disagree???

  • TheJollyMudkip
    TheJollyMudkip 5 months ago

    I feel like another ice type that benefits greatly from terra types would be Avalugg, it has a lot going for it with a massive defence stat, great hp and respectable attack along with Avalanche for a decently strong stab and Recover for relyable recovery, the ice type just holds it back a bit too much be good which won't be a problem with something like electric terra type since you can still somewhat deal with ground types. Not really sure how well this would do in VGC, but it would definatly give it a good buff in singles

  • Ian Quinn
    Ian Quinn 5 months ago

    If you maintain your STAB boosts when terra'ing into a completely different type, would the resistances also be retained?

  • Andrew Koch

  • Elijah Bigsby
    Elijah Bigsby 5 months ago

    In your example of abomasnow - I actually think that ground would be a much more interesting typing for it, at least from a singles perspective. Ground resists rock, and gives you a very powerful stab earthquake (I know, I know. bad for VGC purposes) that completely punishes the fire, poison, rock, or steel type mons that might want to switch into Abomasnow. (EDIT: from a doubles perspective, it also gives you resistance to rock slide and immunity to electroweb, which is really nice). Meanwhile, your existing grass and ice STAB moves give you a way to threaten the grass or water types that would want to switch in onto the now ground type Abomasnow.
    You don't even have to use it as a tera blast slot, which would let it be more of a reactive tera target. I think that's massively important for most of these types of pokemon where they go from "kinda OK" to "great" off of terastylization, but aren't worth building your entire team around the ability to terastylize. You need to have the ability to terastylize them in your back pocket, but if you go all in on always terastylizing them, I think you're going to have a hard time with your team's build. IMO, tera blast is a move that should be reserved for:
    - normal types that you might want to terastylize
    -set up sweepers that you will want to terastylize the majority of the time on your team and don't have a coverage move of their tera type (ie, if you wanted to terastylize, say, quiver dance Volcarona to a steel type, you might want to run terablast on it to get a STAB steel type you'd be able to make use of)

    It's the opposite effect of hidden power. Hidden power trashed ice types, because it gives every mon their offensive properties without their drawbacks, and now they flipped it, and it's amazing.

    honestly tera type poison would probably be really good on rotom frost because youre only weak to psychic and you get to hit fairies super effectively which turns its scarf set from being incredibly hard to get on the field into getting free switches to fire off its amazing coverage. water would probably also be good esp on hail teams because it flips a lot of the ice weaknesses like fire

    Levitate Pokemon terrastalizing into Electric sounds pretty wild. If GameFreak introduces any new Ice types with Levitate they could really pop off with zero weaknesses + Bolt-Beam coverage.

    You covered Electric type (Which will be an incredibly common tera type imo), for good reason. Lack of weaknesses really help the bug, especially with it having such a good setup to load up or be a support.
    Water type was also briefly mentioned, and has a lot of options due to it hard countering it's two former 4 time weaknesses. Water remains a good defensive type.
    Running a Sandstorm Team? Tera Rock isn't going to be common, but stacking the Sandstorm boost with Icy Scales.
    It's already got a great movepool with a wide range of coverage (Weather Ball to fit into any literally any weather team, Dazzling Gleam, Giga Drain, and Air Slash/Hurricane), works as a setup pokemon with Quiver Dance, and can even set screens and, as noted, Tailwind. I'm so excited to fiddle around with Frosmoth.
