Competitive Pokémon Go players expect a big and upcoming turnaround in the match scene, thanks to Niantic's announcement that it intends to rebalance the game. The developer has already suggested what kind of changes it plans to do – and it seems as though they aim to kick the best coaches in the training area out of their top classes.
"Changes in Pokémon effectiveness in combat" that Niantic is working on. On includes adjustments to HP, defense and endurance points. The last two are the most crucial for players who are used to maintaining control over gyms indefinitely, thanks to Pokémon they have left to defend it.
"The Pokémon Defense and Stamina values will be reflected in reversal, which gives highly defensive Pokémon to be valuable in battle by overcoming opponents, instead of just leaving the clock," says Niantic blog post.
When coaches read this, it was the first to think: Blissey will be denied, without a doubt .
Blissey, the second generation of Chansey, does not seem as much of a tank to an outsider. She is a smiling, pink, egg-like … thing that's here to heal, not hurt. It's still true in Pokémon Go. What Blissey lacks in attacking and defensive skills, she's more than an unmatched amount of stamina and high HP Blissey has the highest endurance of any other available Pokémon of 510, she is also capable of reaching a higher health and fighting power than most other Pokémon. This makes her a popular choice for defending fitness centers where she will not really fight back – her crime is weak – but she will not come close to die before the time goes out.
As a result, Blissey has terrorized and annoyed players since the arrival of the generation-two Pokémon.
"A well-placed Blissey (positions 5-8 maybe?) In a level of 10 level training can be annoying as hell since you end up struggling with it many many times and will use many many potions and you can Do not beat it in 30 seconds with the right attacker like many other defenders, "wrote a member of The Silph Road fan community. "So unless it's a player with a lot of time and resources or they come with a team to attack it, it's pretty good deterrent."
"Nobody really likes to turn on a monotonous screen for ten minutes right every time they meet a Pokémon gym just to get past a Blissey …. Or get pleasure from having to pass yourself trying to fight a gym because Blissey is too powerful to take down by the deadline. And the sheer amount of them is also not a source of great pleasure, with an average of 70% of the gyms in an area filled with a Blissey and often a Chancey or Snorlax , "reads a blog post from a Pokémon Go player who describes their personal experience with the" Blissey issue. "
So when you read that Niantic was going to shake up how perseverance works in training teams, of course players began to celebrate.
Can not wait for Blissey to be worthless ⏳⏳⏳

The best part of this meta change in #PokemonGo is all the tears that come from people who were too proud of Blissey as a training player. Your tears are so cute and delicious, they really maintain me. Only things that would do this better are skills or wars. # welcometoGen4

Although you were one of those who sunk a lot of time and stared into Blissey so you could keep in your gym Well … sorry for that.
Since the rebalance for CP comes soon, I will only have a moment of silence for my maxed Blissey, and my future coins will be on a college campus meaning that gyms turn out within 10 minutes often enough and Blissey was the only one to turn them off .

A Pokémon Go Update Probably Soon, especially with Gen-Four Pokémon promised to be on its way. But we do not know when the time will run out at Blissey's time as the game's top defender, so enjoy it – or not! – while it lasts
