Okay so many decades ago I played the original Pokémon games (red, blue, green & yellow on Gameboy) And also PTTCG (Pokémon the Trading Card Game.) Pokemon always had strengths and weaknesses- for example a Fire type Pokémon was weak against a Water type Pokémon but strong against a Grass Type. Many games have used this strength/weakness formula outside of just Pokémon but.. Pokémon is the one I’m MOST familiar with so I’m using it as the basis of my thread. What does Pokémon have to do with DST you ask? Well ALOT.. but at the same time- Not much at all if this is starting to confuse you I will just skip to the TL:DR- Wendys Weaknesses are: Fighting shadow creatures, Abigail will not attack these at all and therefore Wendy’s petal damage buff she gets from Abigail never goes into play so Wendy’s lower damage when not using Abbys buff is in full play here. But Wendy’s Strengths are fighting any large group of mobs- thanks to Abigails shield that prevents her from taking to much rapid damage from multiple sources. Now Willows Strength is fighting fire mobs and shadow creatures due to her immunity to fire damage and Bernie being literally designed to fight shadows. Currently Wendy is the ONLY character in the game with this Strength/Weakness style Pokémon gameplay.. But what I Don’t understand is WHY?? Why if Wurt gains sanity from holding pet fish… does she NOT lose sanity when having to fight fish type mobs (like Being forced to kill RockJaw sharks for example… those are still fish and Wurts Sanity should be taking a nose dive having to have to kill her fishy friends..) Similar to how plucking flowers or chopping trees anywhere near a wormwood tanks his Sanity. If each character had a group of mobs in the game they were good at fighting & another group they had a harder time fighting we would effectively have DST: Pokémon Edition. not only does something like this help to make each character feel further unique from one another, but it also gives characters like Wolfgang who’s compendium description clearly states he has quote “A Myriad of Phobias” it gives someone like HIM Mobs that he can’t just punch his way through with brute force. When it comes to WX78 and Wolfgang in particular they’re both insanely over-powered but they BOTH should have some strong weaknesses too.. WX78 being a robot I would assume things like water type mobs would deal more damage to them for example. In the shortest answer possible: it gives every character things they are best at doing/fighting.. and things they’re worst at doing/fighting.
