Technician. Bullet Seed is such an insane upgrade over Seed Bomb.

Technician also means that you do not have to run Stone Miss.

I hope Breloom remains good in Gen VII.

I feel like it would be very hard for Breloom to become bad if it managed to survive Gen VI intact with all the insane flying priority flying around between Talonflame and Mega-Pinsir.

I have no idea how to narrow this down to 6 and we aren't even done with spoilers yet. There'd be two more in the list too if you could get all the starters solo.

You can get all the starters solo.

if it remains the only spore user that can do damage then it will probably still be good

All Alolan pokemon seem to have really poo poo abilities even compared to their normal ones.

Vulpix/Ninetales get Snow Cloak vs. Flash Fire
Exeggutor gets Frisk vs Chlorophyll
Raichu gets Surge Surfer vs Static
Marowak gets Cursed Body vs Rock Head


You're kidding right? Assuming it's got the same speed as Kanto Raichu then here's a list of things faster than Alolan Raichu while Elec Terrain is active:

Scarfed Ninjask
Scarfed Deoxys, Deoxys-A and Deoxys-S
Swift Swim Floatzel w/ Rain
Chlorophyll Whimsicott w/ Sun (lol)

Literally EVERYTHING else is slower.

It'll be good for doubles, but I do agree that it isn't near as helpful as you'd think.

Anyway, I guess I'll be working with some of these guys if that quiz is to be believed:

7 and 8 would've been Tauros and Bouffalant. Alola Kingler will have his revenge on the bitch-rear end, unique move stealing piece of trubbish called crawdaunt. Alola Arcanine will probably be pretty cool too.

The Sandcastle's ability sucks, I can't believe it doesn't get Arena Trap or Sand Stream. I'll shout this from the rooftops until the day I die.

Does it not? I'd have to watch the video again, but it looked like it's flat-out immune to Water attacks. Same way Lightning Rod works, basically.

No, it pretty clearly took damage from the Shellder's attack. Or it just had a supercut to it at 25% health for no reason.

It seems to work like Justified.

i'm pretty sure lightning rod and flash fire and the like straight up skip the attack's animation when they're triggered, that didn't happen when shelder hit the sandcastle

It's pretty fun to discover what favorites lie beyond your #1, which I think most people are capable of identifying




I did this a while ago so I'm not too sure about the placement of Electivire and Forretress, because there are a few others trailing after them that I might like more. It would be worth retaking just to see.
