    First, it would be hilarious.
    Second, feel free to theorymon.
    Excadrill could definitely find itself on the way out, for one thing.

    Of course, Durant wouldn't like this.

    Stuff like Gyarados, Salamence and Scrafty wouldn't require such a hard choice.

    Also, Breloom would be nice (bonus healing + technician).

    Bibarel would be stupidly broken, with Simple, Moody and Unaware.

    Slaking with Huge Power and Pure Power.

    Enough said.

    As for actual abilities, Poison Heal + Sand Veil would help Gliscor, and Heracross would make good use of Guts + Moxie, assuming only 2 abilities can be active at a time.

    I'd love a Breloom with Technician and Poison Heal. Oh boy, wouldn't that be fun! =D

    Gliscor with Sand Veil and Poison Heal = X.X

    Blissey with Serene Grace and Natural Cure = Kill me now.

    Snorlax would love Guts+Scrappy with its Curse sets. That way it could actually run Body Slam/Frustration+EQ without worrying about ghosts, and brush off status.

    Multi Scale + Pressure Lugia = The Ultimate staller
    Huge Power + Sap Sipper Azumarill would be awesome
    Magic Guard + Regenerator Reuniclus would also kick ass
    And Breloom would be a total nightmire with Poison Heal + Technician. No more dieing to SS + Life Orb.

    @Koko
    I don't believe Manaphy gets Drizzle? XD
    When I said no limits, I didn't mean that too literally. They still have to stick with abilities they have.

    Also, consider the fact that many Pokemon would become more broken...but everything else would be too. How would this affect the metagame? :P

    Scrafty would probaby become Uber. Actually, I'm not exactly sure :3

    Trace + Download would be useful for Porygon2.

    Guts + Iron Fist for Drain Punching Conkeldurr. Sheer Force helps if you run Stone Edge as well.

    Poison Heal + Sand Veil Gliscor in sand would be just broken.

    No doubt in my mind. Shedinja should get magic guard as well as wonder guard. Might make it viable.

    Bouffalant would be interesting; Sap Sipper into a Grass-type move and spam Afro Break with +1 Attack and Reckless.

    Hippowdon would be pretty cool too.

    Hmm...

    Stall + Prankster Sableye = Paradox? o.O
    For those who don't know, Stall makes Sableye always go last, but Prankster gives it +1 priority to non-attacking moves...

    Insomnia + Vital Spirit Delibird... double sleep immunity. :D

    Sand Veil + Sturdy Donphan @Brightpowder would increase the viability of Lv 1 Endeavor.

    Ice Body + Thick Fat Walrein would probably be very good for those hail stall teams.

    Sturdy + Heavy Metal Aggron... Heavy Bomber destruction much?

    Magic Guard + Unaware Clefable = *facepalm*

    Stall + Prankster means Sabeleye would have +1 priority, but if anything else used a +1 priority o rhigher attack it would always go second, even if it outsped an opponent using say Bullet Punch.

    Actually, I think Stall would act like an item--it's not quite priority.
    So Prankster should override it.

    What Destiny Warror said would be true. Stall makes the user go last in its priority bracket only - this means that a Level 100 Sableye using Prankster Will-o-Wisp would go before a Level 1 Scizor using Bullet Punch.
    Sableye would still use Will-o-Wisp before Tyranitar can use Crunch on it though, and use Will-o-Wisp after Swampert uses Protect.

    Cloyster would only have Skill Link and Shell Armor, IIRC. :P
    Oyeah, and Overcoat.

    How about Klinklang, w/ both Plus and Minus. At least they'd be useful then, although it depends on how the mechanics work, though.

    Unrelated, but dat avi.

    Anyway, Chandelure with Flash Fire + Flame Body + Shadow Tag. And we thought it was broken now.
    Chlorophyll + Harvest Exeggutor would be nifty, too.
    Magnezone with Analytic and Magnet Pull AND Sturdy is fun. Bulkier sets could arise, as apposed to the current Scarf Magnezone/all out attacker.
    Jellicent would appreciate getting both Water Absorb AND Cursed Body.
    And...lol, Iron Fist + No Guard + DynamicPunch Golurk.

    Maybe I'll post some more fun ones later.
