A trailer revealing 7(!) new Pokemon has been released on Pokemon's Japanese Youtube channel.

 

 

Spoiler:
In order: Tapu Koko is an Electric/Fairy type, has an ability that applies Electric Terrain, uses a move called Wrath of Nature, and was mentioned in-game during the E3 demonstration.

 

Denjimushi is an Electric/Bug type and evolves into Kuwaganon, which is also Bug/Electric.

 

Jijiron is a Normal/Dragon type and has the ability Frenzy, which increases Special Attack somehow.

 

Hagigishiri is a Water/Psychic type and has the ability Vivid Body. What is does is unclear, but it stopped the opponent from using Fake Out.

 

Aburi is a Bug/Fairy type.

 

Todegemaru is an Electric/Steel type, and appears to be this generation's Pikaclone. It can use a move called Discharge Strike.

 

Zygarde also gets Swarm Change, which allows it to transform into stronger forms when at low health.


Axel: The answer, of course, is that Gabe newell doesn't give a fuck

Werefox McCrits: Never realised how much you HATE HIGH-5S
Gelg: My brother died in the Pacific High 5 War of '76
Gelg: I... just can't.
Werefox McCrits: I'm so sorry

A pokemon that can poison types that can't normally be poisoned? I see this becoming a big thing in the comp scene.


There once was a kitty named Tomo
As famous on the Internet as Domo
But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

Y'know, it occurred to me recently...

 

More people pronounce 'Flabebe' correctly than pronounce 'Pokemon' correctly. I mean... what?

Two new pokemon leaked. One of them's a red panda, the other is, uh... a different take on a pikachu clone.

 The bear is called Kiteruguma and is Normal/Fighting with the abilities Fluffy and Klutz, while the ghost is Mimicyu and is Ghost/Fairy. It has the ability called False Colours.

 

Kinda hoping that creepy ass ghost fairy has some other forms. But I already kinda like it. I'm sure it'll be a big thing in the competitive scene because of the typing.

 

Also, starting to think that maybe we should get a subforum for Pokemon or something. It feels weird to cram everything into one master thread.

Another trailer/commercial has been released by Pokemon of Japan, featuring the return of rideable Pokemon, expanded Pokemon-amie fucntionality and, more importantly, Jojo poses and the bracelets your character has can launch special attacks with certain Pokemon.

Mimicyu is the cutest fucking thing I've ever seen. It just wants to be loved like pikachu.

 

Someone on Tumblr said they hope they have different artistic abilities and that some of their costumes are better or worse than others, so that people can encourage the worst ones to be the best they can. It's a fucking cinnamon roll that must be protected.

Pokemon Go gyms must be automatically generated.

 

Why would anyone intentionally choose the Westboro Baptist Church to be a gym?

Unfortunately, the gym has since changed into other player hands, but this one really pissed off the nuts.

Some pokemon are getting new forms for Alola. They look interesting!

 

Those rumors about gyms being gone are looking pretty real now. I didn't even give them a second thought, that's such a core progress tracker in game that it seemed weird they'd get rid of it. But it looks like they've just replaced it with something similar.

 

Those funny fusion dances explained too. They're like mega evolution but for moves, one per battle and they're unique to each type. Looks like a kinda boring gimmick to me, but I'm sure there will be some story reason for it.

 

 

Oh man, that ice vuplix though...

I think it could have gone for ghost too, but fairy also makes sense, considering the stories surrounding kitsune.

Also, those rideable pokemons seems to be replacing HMs now? Or at least make them optional.

Which is something i would be very happy to see. HMs should have been retired gens ago IMO. I always hated giving up one or two moves/pokemons just for the sake of having HM slaves.

I know soaring took over for flying in ORAS, which was very much appreciated. I hope that becomes a regular thing that's unique to legendaries, it'll help to make them feel special again and lighten up on some of the obligation to center the story around them.

 

I wondertraded my Latias immediately in a recent wonderlocke run but I could still use it for soaring. I don't even...

A new teaser has been posted. Things are looking very different.

 

Also, looks like they're bringing back some Pokemon Snap elements.

 

Day/night cycles are gonna be a thing again. Moon is gonna be set 12 hours earlier/later than Sun, so that the day/night cycle is inverted. Pretty cool idea, I think.

If the new Pokemon anime art design didn't tell you they wanted a piece of the Yokai Watch demographic, maybe this new Pikachu dance will.

Also that Eevee special ability is 'casting Knights of the freaking Round' long.

Grimer and Muk were one of those Pokemon where you said 'out of ideas'.

 

Nintendo thought you wanted an Alolan form of that. So here you go.

YOU'RE NOT EVEN TRYING, MAN

 

Thank Arceus for that stoned-out Meowth form.

Hey, it's better-looking than a boring color-swap shiny.

Buckle your pants, the nostalgia is real. I did not expect anything like THIS.

So, shame on all of us for not posting anything when this silly game actually came out.

 

Not gonna say anything about the story other than Game Freak is getting better. But who didn't expect that?  Then there's the literal progress gating... fuck them for that. I know it's necessary but the least they could do is disguise it! I guess they can only do a certain number of mechanics-bending things in a given game.

 

Also, I'm determined to make pyukumuku a good pokemon without any sort of extensive setup. Under the spoiler is what's stopping me.

 

Spoiler:
If you don't count bide and counter, it has ZERO attacking moves. It's all status. I mean, sure, it's a great suicide bomber against sweepers, but... fuck.

 

Right now, I'm leveling mine up to see if I can make a taunt/bide combo work. I don't have high hopes.

 

Hell, who am I kidding? I want it to work because it's fucking impossible.
