So are they not doing any new mega evolutions? If not I think that's a huge mistake since it'd do a lot to broaden the meta. Also does anyone know if the Alola forms have higher stats or just the same base stat total but rearranged?

Also I really want this to be real.

Disappointment I guess, in this entirely hypothetical situation which probably won't occur because there's never been a bad pokemon game (yes, not even Diamond and Pearl).

What's the point of the question?

Snowslash is explicitly stated to be slower than regular Sandslash. Its supposed to be more defensive, which is why they gave it a god awful type for defense!

I'm not even sure what they could do at this point to make the game awful.

hello


I was excited to receive my copy of white 2 on the mail this morning. I'd bought off some vendor on amazon. New copy even. But upon unboxing the package, it turned out to be one of those dodgy "UAE/Malaysia" region dealios that some people have reported come with no game inside or sometimes a copy of mystery dungeon. I'll just return it and try to get a refund.

And I was anticipating playing it too.

I'm sure some other super cool mons will be found. I do like Marowak and the sea cucumber and Mimikyu. Maybe whatever Marshadow is will be cool too. Has a cool name.

The "slower than Sandslash" bit may have just been because Sandslash gets Sand Rush, but I guess we'll see.

obviously ice type will be buffed to have a bunch of resistances so that alola sandslash will be the best sandslash he can be

yeah give it resistances to common attacking types such as poison, grass, and psychic.

buff ice type and how about make it so that not every pokemon in the game learns ice beam. mewtwo has had ubers sets where its only attacking move is ice beam , why even bother with STAB when you have such high stats and it's such good coverage.

(please buff psychic as an offensive typing, is what I'm saying)

The problem is that ice is garbage defensively but almost all ice Pokémon are slow as gently caress. When you give an ice Pokémon good speed and attack you get weavile, and that guy is power.

Ice definitely needs resistances but those types are already some of the most resisted in the game, it wouldn't be fair to them. IMO ice needs to resist water (they'd be mutually resistant like but and fighting) and while we're at it, remove the fairy type's resistance to bug, fairy has enough resistances as it is and bug types were just starting to get good in gen5 but gamefreak had to ruin it.
