Just getting back to the new typing: I've seen a lot of discussion on what pokemon will be retyped. I'm curious as to any moves that will be retyped/new fairy moves that will be introduced to non-fairy pokemon, even if they're not getting STAB, this could give some pokemon a boost when it comes to type coverage.

Fridge brilliance: the members of its family are partially based on a beach ball and a blimp, respectively.

It's base stats and abilities are terrible as well. Giving it flare blitz isn't going to solve anything. Base 65 speed is horrible for a physical sweeper.

Imagine what a Guts Flareon can do in a Trick Room.... It can also easily come in on a special attacker and start dishing it out. It won't be anything OU or even UU worthy, but it would at least get some kind of usage.

Too bad it can't use flame orb with guts, which means it has to use toxic orb and it won't be staying in very long at all.

Do you guys still exchange friend codes etc for DS/3DS and do battles etc? I sincerely wana try sorting my Wifi on my 3DS (I seem to be able to do anything and everything cept battle - where it drops out just as it's about to start) and giving a few friends some battles.

 

Also any chance you guys "rate" teams? :P

I can rate teams.

 

 

As far as battling online goes.... I just use simulators because you can guarantee that things like sleep clause won't be broken, people won't be using more than 510 IVs, and it is so much easier to make and edit new Pokemon and teams. Wi-fi battles are just so slow because of battle animations and loading times. I do like battling with my friends with just infrared every now and then though.

That cotton candy thing is so amazing. I'm not even joking, that thing put a smile on my face and I'm all but guaranteed to burst out laughing whenever I find one ingame.

 

If they keep this up, fairy will be my favorite type.

Pangoro is bloody amazing and he'll be my bro in X.

 

The squids are Psychic Dark, they will have a vanilite chance in hell to be in OU, regardless of movepool and stats, Uturn will rip them apart.

 

Honeedge is looking better by the day, provided he has decent stats and movepool, he should be Ou or UU at the very least, amazing typing and ability!

Oh look, something nobody saw coming!

First off are various "Mega" forms of various Pokémon, specifically MegaBlaziken, MegaAbsol, MegaMawile, MegaMewtwo, MegaLucario and MegaAmpharos. They're all called "Mega". MegaMawile is Steel/Fairy-type, as is normal Mawile now. MegaMawile has the ability Huge Power. MegaBlaziken has Speed Boost. MegaLucario has Adaptability. MegaAbsol has the ability Magic Bounce

They "evolve" through a process called "Mega Evolution"

Pre-evolution of Gogoat is called Meekuru. It is 0.9m and 31.0kg

We have an Electric Fairy called Dedenne. It is 0.2m and 2.2kg. It is the Antenna Pokémon and has the abilities Pick Up or the new ability Cheek Pouches

The Rabbit is a Normal-type called Horubii. It is 0.4m and 5.0kg. It is the Digging Pokémon and also has the abilities Pick Up or Cheek Pouches

The Super Training facility is also showcased

A new character is shown called Koruni. She is a Gym Leader and holds the key to understanding Mega Evolutions

16:18: First event for Pokémon X & Y. Torchic to be distributed from October 12th to January 15th. Hold a new item called Blaziken Knight. Can eventually become MegaBlaziken. It's also mentioned to utilise something called a Mega Stone

Details and images can be found in the usual places.

Not quite sure why Absol and Mawile arn't just getting evolutions. Mawile's going to be a beast now. Steel/Fairy with Huge Power. It's just going to melt dragons. Lucario with adaptability is pretty damn strong too.

I think this is Game Freak's way of making Pokemon stronger without needing to give them evolutions, keeping the Pokedex somewhat smaller and organized.

Don't quite get the need for MegaBlaziken... It's already massively strong, it's a starter (and notably the only starter so far to be listed amongst the Megas) AND Dream World gives it the speedboost ability which bumped it from OU to Ubers already...

I've just assumed that all of the starters are getting Mega evolutions.

I don't get why MegaBlaziken gets speedboost though, it's already got that ability.

 

 

Mega Kangaskhan was revealed today, it makes the baby get older and able to fight, and gets the ability Paternal Bond which lets it attack twice.

Am I the only one finding it amusing Mega Mawile, a Pokemon with a typing combination that is very anti-dragon, somewhat resembles Iris?

 

As for the other Mega evolutions, I am really glad Ampharos and Absol are getting some love, Kangaskhan is going to kick ridiculous amounts of ass, and Lucario being outright vicious. As for Mega Blaziken, I am not fond of that other Pokemon that actually need a Mega Evolution might get ignored and that its item is confirmed to be event-only.

 

Also, I am going to make a bet that Korrina is a Fighting type gym.

Pokemon-centric Nintendo Direct tomorrow at 12 midday uk time :D Really hoping for a reveal of the evolutions of the starters, I just can't make my decision without that :P

Some info:

 

You get 2 starters, 1 from new region, and 1 of the original 3.

 

Blastoise, Charizard, Venusaur confirmed megaevolutions

 

Pokemon Bank announced, it's a sort of website you can transfer your pokemon to that can store up to 3000.

 

I'm not sure, but I think I heard them mention that every pokemon would have a mega evolution. :shock:

EDIT: More information from the site. Mega Charizard gets Drought. Mega Venusaur gets Thick Fat and Mega Blastoise gets something called Mega Launcher.
