This time around Greninja was the focus of a couple of bug fixes along with 14% decrease in damage for the Pokemon’s Surf attack.

But that’s slim pickings compared to the mess of nerfs for Hoopa that saw its Hyperspace Fury, Psybeam, and Rings Unbound abilities all get wrangled by the latest patch.

It seems as though TiMi had an eye for the game’s Support picks seeing as Blissey also got her Egg Bomb reduced while coping some cooldown reductions to some of its moves.
