Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Wooloo has Fluffy as one of her abilities. If she has respectable bulk to go with it, she could be a hell of a physical wall. Unless they buff Run Away to the point that it allows the user to escape from trapping moves, Fluffy should always be her ability of choice.

Although being a partial dark type makes much more sense, Corviknight's typing is actually one of the best in the entire series. If you don't believe me, Skarmory has made that abundantly and consistently clear ever since he debuted nearly 20 years ago. If he has bulk similar to Skarmory, he's gonna be a real pain in the ass when he runs Pressure.

Drednaw's abilities are very fitting, but since critical hits are extremely few and far between, Strong Jaw is easily his best bet to go with. Hopefully he gets a STAB biting move and/or a great attack stat to really make use of it, though.

At the moment, Gossifleur and Eldegoss have pretty much beaten everyone else out when it comes to revealed abilities. Cotton Down is basically their version of the Goomy line's Gooey ability, which actually has decent utility compared to Wooloo's Run Away, Corviknight's Unnerve and Drednaw's Shell Armor. However, the reason why they won out handedly is because they have Regenerator, which is indisputably one of the best abilities in the entire series.

Truly one of the best bois we'll ever see in a Ninty game.

In my copy of Black 2, I caught all of his released Pokemon and raised them with TLC because I knew that he did the same in spite of their brief history with each other. In fact, since he has two Darmanitan, I moved the one with Sheer Force over via Pokemon Bank a few years ago and he's been chilling out in Alola ever since.

Disappointed in myself for failing to remember such a ridiculously overdue change. But yeah, there's yet one more reason why Unova was a ton of fun.

Honestly, I'd rather have them remade instead of the Sinnoh games.

All I need is Corviknight and I'll be a happy boy. Dynamaxing thank goodness is limited to three turns and if I were to use it I would use it to turn the tide in a close battle.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Took another break from Pokemon but i keep up with the news and the Pokemon Direct has me sooo hyped!!!! Started finishing off my Ultra Sun playthrough and then i've got Ultra Moon with a team all bred and ready to go. Currently playing the Rainbow Rocket episode.

My thoughts on the info from the new direct:

Dynamaxing: I've never been a fan of the gimmicks that have become a trend, wasn't too fussed on Mega Evolution or Z-Moves but i did like the Alolan forms. I really don't like the Dynamaxing concept and i hate that it seems i'll be forced to use it in Gym battles....

Wild Areas: The huge expansive areas with visible Pokemon walking about is extremely cool but i think a lot of people have missed something. It seems we can catch Pokemon like Milotic & Steelix in the wild, they are Pokemon that were normally only obtainable through trade evolution!

Wooloo: Cute looking Pokemon, standard looking normal type. I don't see myself ever using it.
Corviknight: The most awesome looking Pokemon to be revealed thus far. Pretty good typing in Flying/Steel and cool that it seems to be the fast travel system for this generation. It has already claimed a place on so many trainer's teams already but i'm keeping my options open. It'll be interesting to see it's full evolution line.
Gossifleur & Eldegoss: These Pokemon remind me so much of the Petilil-Lilligant line. I'm not sure if i'll be using it, again keeping my options open.
Dreadnaw: Interesting looking Pokemon and i was totally surprised when i found out it was a Water/Rock type. My favourite typing is Water and i kinda feel like it is a good addition to the typing, even though we already have around 10 Pokemon of the same dual type. Atleast it's not just another fish designed Pokemon, it's quite different.
Zacian & Zamazenta: These legendaries look pretty cool but i think they just look too similar to each other, i hope the rest of the legendaries for this generation are better designed. I really don't have a preference as i eventually buy both games and do a playthrough of each. Can definitely see them both obviously being part Steel type but not sure of the secondary typings, still interested to find out.

Sobble: As Water is my favourite type i'm obviously using Sobble in my first playthrough, he's just just so timid and adorable. I can definitely see him evolving into a beautiful, confident Pokemon. Beyond excited to see how his evolution line goes. As for final dual typing i'd be happy with either Water/Psychic, Water/Poison but i'm hoping for Water/Dragon.

Grookie & Scorbunny: In my additional playthroughs i normally box the other starter and play with a fully bred team so i'll not be using these Pokemon. Not fussed on Grookie (probably will be a gorilla/monkey design which is quite boring to me) but Scorbunny has a cute look. Not sure what dual typing's they'll eventually become. I'll find it very funny if Scorbunny becomes another Fire/Fighting starter though!

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Finally took a crack at the Battle Tree since completing my Dex for my second playthrough of Sun and managed to nab the Kanto starters' Mega Stones after beating Red. Now I'm gonna take a break from (Ultra) Sun for a while until I get the itch for Alola again.

Oh and according to Serebii, a new move has been discovered via Sword and Shield's Japanese site. It's a grass-type move that deals decent damage and can be used by Grookey.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

No National Dex once again in Sword and Shield? If so my hype meter has gone down badly. WHY CANT WE CATCH EM ALL? In Sun and Moon we could but it was still empty feeling because they didn't all get Pokedex entries, now it looks like they took it a step further and limited who can be transferred/caught. Here's hoping that we can transfer them all after completing the game once.. but still if the Dex won't include them it is not as fun.. I miss being able to get the satisfaction of owning all the current Pokémon, replayability is important.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

Yamper is so damn precious. :'3

Happy we finally got a corgi Pokemon, though it was pretty much a given to happen since Galar is the Pokemon world's version of England. Like Corviknight, I instantly decided to have him as a team member as soon as I saw him.

I'm fine with having a second region in a row to do away with the National Dex, since it makes Galar feel that much more distinct and places more of a focus on its environment, which is one aspect of Alola I really liked that I also wished Unova had followed.

And I sincerely doubt that any Poke from every previous generation won't be available via Home. Odds are that Game Freak will roll out a patch down the line to ensure that cross-compatibility is expanded / smoothed out like they did with the jump from gen. VI to VII.

Re: Official Pokemon Discussion Thread!

I preordered Shield last night No doubt in my mind which one I'd be getting haha. Most people are for Sword, so I'll go the opposite direction.

I hope the Luxray line make it into the game, that's my fave <3

Met Dean/Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
