Blasphemy?
When you have 18 types, (there's over 150 potential type combinations), over approximately 240 held items with various in battle effects, and 4,294,967,296 different unique personality values (which govern the BASE stats of the pokemon) and approximately 10^418 different combinations for training AFTER the pokemon has been hatched (ignoring moves for now), and 617 different moves - each with unique typing/effect/number of times it can be used/power - of which those pokemon can learn 4

...
Then you get into catch probabilities, ability effects, Mega Evolutions, weather effects, trick room, wonder room, gravity, stat increases, stat decreases, the effect of terrain, the seven different combat types, whether a move makes contact or is a non contact move, whether a move is special or physical (and there are special moves that make contact and physical moves that don't), whether a move is priority, how much the pokemon likes you, the effect of gender on the fight, what SEASON it is (yes, this does factor in for at least one pokemon), whether a pokemon is beautiful/smart/cool/cute/tough

...

And I don't even want to go into breeding mechanics, mostly because the wording of it as "breeding mechanics" is kinda skeevy. But suffice to say it also influcences battle by altering the probabilities of getting a good personality value and also getting extra moves.

...

Methinks it's actually pokemon = ++shin megami tensei;

Sawsbuck's seasonal changes are purely cosmetic and don't affect its in-game performance.

It matters for that sixth combat type I listed: the side "contest" things in each game since RSE that you can compete with other people in.

Specifically, in gen V, the season altered what stuff was beneficial for the ensemble in the theater dance off.

The only pokemon I played was in SSB, mewtwo was ok, pikachu was fun. But the poke-balls all over the place in some levels were really cool weapons :0

The only real experience I have had with them.

You mean "banned for being Uber tier"?

Allow me to highlight why...

HP: 80
ATT:120/160
DEF: 70/80
SPA: 110/130
SPD: 70/80
SPE:80/100

Abilities:
Standard:
Blaze: Boosts fire moves by 50% when at 33% or less health
Hidden and Mega:
Speed boost: Raises the user's Speed stat by one stage, at the end of each turn in battle.

...

It is in the same tier as Shaymin-S, one of the most bonkers pokemon ever made - it's top 1.8% fastest pokemon with a 60% flinch chance (that nobody is immune to outside of Inner Focus, but no pokemon with that ability is viable. Point to a pokemon with that ability, I will point to another ability on that pokemon that is strictly better) on every attack OR an 80% chance to reduce your special defense by 2 stages.

At least the fire starter was the best pick for once.

Also I guess they are making a pokemon fighting game. The same people who do tekken.

Eh. With gen 2 it was arguable, it came down to cyndaquil or tododile, but they were such vastly different beasts in their own right its hard to pick one that is strictly better than the other (feraligatr gets dragon dance/ice punch/waterfall/crunch, typhlosion gets eruption/sunny day/solar beam/focus blast) and gen 4 was definitely chimchar (it USED to be that piplup was even with him, but chimchar got a massive boost last gen with the introduction of his hidden ability "iron fist" - raises all punching moves power by 20%)


As for Pokken? Eh, hasn't really caught my eye the way I thought it would... mostly because it's mostly going to be fighting types and MAYBE mewtwo.
