Change, if only to give the additional effects each a boosted chance of appearing. I mean, they’re literally the move’s gimmick!

Keep, although honestly its use is fairly questionable considering the free turn you'd be given to your opponent. That, and Seed Bomb is generally a safer move, anyway.

Change. Lower the paralyze chance so the accuracy can increase.

Change.

It is the signature move of Pikachu, but the fact that it only has that it will paralyze 10% of the time is really bad.

Change. When held by Grass types, it slightly increases their speed.

Change. As it stands currently, it seems pretty gimmicky/situational at best, as you'd have to be facing anything that's not a special attacker for it to really be effective. I'd just increase both Defense and Sp. Defense by 1 stage upon transforming (maybe 2? but no more than that).

Keep. There should be more Berries introduced that recover greater amounts of HP though.

Delete.

This move and Spit Up are completely useless unless the opponent ate a berry. I have never seen AI eat a berry in battle, unless it was competitive. And even then, it's not like you're going to see many people eat berries.

It's a very useful move for many different reasons and in various conditions as well, so I definitely agree to keep this one.

I don't know with this one.
It seems like a move that would make sense for pokemon to have, but if someone uses it the opponent and themselves faints, rendering it useless.

Delete. It has little use outside of being super cheesy with accuracy hax, and it is annoying to waste a moveslot on a Pokémon in order to make dark caves bearable.

Keep. The Ability itself is fairly good, but it would need better and more reliable users to use that ability at the best of its capability.

Keep. It's a neat item in general and serves as a boon for various Pokemon.

Delete. In all actual honestly I'd rather just change it so that it raises the user's critical hit ratio two stages rather than one, but I'd rather rely on increased raw strength than rely on critical hit chances.

Keep, it has a cool animation and I like how it was created to commemorate an event of some kind.

Delete the move and the need to use the move in the first place. If a Pokemon can naturally smash rocks, it should be able to do so. I mean... Tauros can do it in SM/USUM, so...

change; it and emergency exit should remove the pokemon from battle at the end of the turn, so it still gets to attack even after having its HP lowered to under half

Keep. I honestly would've gone the delete option, but I'm thinking that raising both defenses might actually be useful in some niche situations where you also have recovery.

keep/change. It's a good ability, although I'd give it to some pokemon that could actually use it well. Pyukumuku has a low HP, high defenses, and a much more useful ability in unaware. All three of these traits result in innards out having little to no use.

Change. I'd make it so that status moves affect Dark types again, but at the cost of priority and accuracy.

Heal Block.
