Also, I am glad we are back to having good Route 1 normal rodents after the horrible three streak of Bibarel, Watchog and Diggersby.

Gumshoos is definitely up there with Raticate, Furret and Linoone as a GoodTM design.

Bibarel and Diggersby are good.

6 yungoos at the start and if a wild pokemon manages to defeat a yungoos (not likely) it becomes an honorary yungoos and i have to catch it

Alolan Parasect should have it freed from the control of the mushrooms so it can assume its true form; a massive, terrifying bug/dragon.

Quietly replace one and pretend it never existed.

Rockruff was already unpersoned by Salandit. Who knows who will get cut next?

Also, I don't think its possible for Vikavolt and Mimikyu not to make my team tbh. I don't think I could cut them from a team made up of my favorite pokemon from every generation.

They're Scolipede, Tyrantrum and Sableye tier for me.

Actually confirmed? It seemed pretty vague when described.

A japanese gaming mag (and in turn, serebii.net) has confirmed that hyper training maxes out the IV in whatever stat you pick. No word yet on how rare the bottlecaps used to access hyper training are going to be though, or what tiers they come in if any (although the item being called "silver" bottlecap does give the impression of at least a gold bottlecap existing).

Still, to live in a world where I can raise the stats of my adorable war machines using pogs? Who knew this is what the future would hold.

I count like 8 different pokemon I have to use just out of the things that have already been revealed

Meanwhile in my replay of Y I 'm restricting myself to not using any pokemon I've ever used before and apparently I've used like 70% of the cool things because I'm 4 badges in and only have a team of 5.

If they give you a way to change the nature and ability of a pokemon and teach it egg moves somehow then there will be literally no reason to not battle with the friends you made during your journey (assuming of course you have the good taste to make friends with strong species)

This might be the only gen where I don't use a starter because I don't care much for the final form of Rowlet and my brother has dibs on Poppilo's. Its not even that I think its bad, there are just so many new designs I like more than it.

A cool feature I will barely ever use since breeding a 5Iv pokemon is actually really easy when you have a 6 IV ditto. Raising them to level 100 would take more effort.

But now my shiny Pinsir can be perfect instead of near perfect so that's cool.

Shitting up the Misogynoir thread by blaming black women for their multiracial problems.

Put this racist on ignore immediately!


Popplio
Turtonator
Alolan Raichu or Vikavolt
Salandit
Lurantis
Mudsdale (why didn't they name this Clodsdale?)

I might also have to make room for Wishawashi depending on how good the School Form is.

Yeah, this means random Shinies can actually be good and usable which is great.

I'd love to actually be able to break out and use my cool shiny Charizard (with 3 Speed IVs)

Only if they give you a way to change natures as well.

I hatched a shiny Skrelp with the worst possible nature for a Skrelp. I could have left the everstone on my Modest Ditto, but I was just breeding for dex entries
