I absolutely love Rough Skin/Iron Barbs.
My Ferrothorn runs it. I just switch it in to take a hit and DOWN goes the opponent thanks to it holding Rocky Helmet. Even better since Ferrothorn doesn't seem to have that much HP, so Leech Seed recovers a lot, depending on what was seeded.

Okay, so imagine all the above, in a double or triple battle. Imagine Leech Seeding all your targets as they try to KO you with physical moves. You just recover the damage.

Another thing is Sharpedo who was overlooked. He's frail, so why not use a priority move on it? Most are physical, so Rough Skin can break their sashes, even though Sharpedo dies.

Just my input.

I love how they actually made an item to supplement these abilities,
just like how some people think moxie is an ideal ability, becuase knocking out pokemon is what they are supposed to do,

I think rough skin/ iron barbs, are even more ideal, because your going to get hurt, and its almost fifty fity chance of your opponent being physical, plus a good number of the "elite" pokemon are physical attackers, so at least these abilities make people think about if they can afford this hit, especially if they got a life orb, or recoil move, and have a little life left

I like how ferrothorn is so darn defensive and with leech seed it could literally sit there all day, letting the opponent defeat itself
I dunno why I never thought of leech seeding multiple pokemon, never occured to me

I think now that sharpedo has speed boost people will wanna try using that, using the protect+speed boost trick to at least get this thing going
its a shark and I think people wanna just reenact jaws with this pokemon and unfortunately I dunno if it can

Damage from Rough Skin and Iron Barbs builds up over time. It is often best when combined with other damage moves.

Iron Barbs + Sandstorm + Leech Seed + Rocky Helmet + Taunt.

So mean... yet so satisfying XD


thats just mean
haha I love it

I wanna do the math on this

Iron barbs 1/8+ sandstorm1/16+ Leech Seed 1/16+ Rocky Helmet1/6= 13/24

which is over fifty percent of the Opponents max HP
in one single turn, and thats ignoring and previous damage that the opponent recieved before getting the leech seed up and/or being hurt
scary


yup yup yup! biggrin

Sandstorm teams are a b***h sometimes!

I second that
I think it that chip damage just messing with people and ruining sashes
haha
it why I love my garchomp with a rocky helmet,
I really doubt I would swap it for a rough skin garchomp, since in the sand its a bit more evasive



lol Sash Ruiner~
It makes sturdy useless as hell too xDDDD

amen to that I forget about sturdy, still not used to it as a good ability

and like most of the sturdy pokemon are physical attackers and if there is a risk of losing that ability I think I would swap out if I needed my sturdy pokemon
heck FEAR aron cant beat a roughskin or iron barb pokemon

oh if your doing a fear aron then there is literally nothing to worry about for attacks,
cause literally the aron will be level one so the type wont matter

the rough skin pokemon will simply win because when aron uses endeavor its game over, either cause itll break teh sash or do the chip damage to knock it ou

whihc is funny no matter what

I want a rough skin ghost pokemon
I realize this would negate like two common physical attacking types, but still would be fun for randomness

I think it would have that random quality that a rough skin ghost pokemon
plus since all types have physical and special attacks
it would be fun since it would just be a like an added boost to a ghost pokemon, avoids strong physical attacks, and hurts any one who tries to touch it

Considering how a lot of Dark Types are physical, that may work, but it's not worth absorbing a super effective attack..

yeah I know but if they gave it to a defensive ghost pokemon then even those big hits wont do the trick to finish it off ya know

I dunno I just want a rough skin ghost

I wanna see more variety
I like these abilities and would like to see them on more pokemon

I like that first off
I imagine some round psychic pokemon with this ability, or some kinda volcanoesque pokemon

but I meant like instead of getting hit by physcial attacks,
this ability would counter if hit with a special attack

Afterthought- when hit with a special attack hurts the attacking pokemon

I dunno idea
