    Steel resistances have been changed recently.

    Check http://www.serebii.net/xy/typechart.shtml

    Most notably, steel loses its resistances to ghost and dark.

    Just realised this: If the chansey line is now Fairy type, which is rather certain to assume, then fighting type moves will be half effective against them.

    Bleh! That's terrible, especially since those two are strong against ghost!

    So he's weak to:
    Fire, Ground, Dark, Ghost

    And resistant to:
    Grass, Ice, Flying, Psychic, Bug, Rock, Dragon, Steel, Fairy

    And immune to:
    Normal, Fighting, Poison

    Not quite the god-tier I had envisioned but still... immune or resistant to 12/18 types will earn him a spot on my team.

    Pokemon that hover above the ground regardless of levitate should be auto immune to ground..... BECAUSE IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE OTHERWISE

    zito, you got a thing for a certain category of pokes...

    Wigglytuff?
    Wigglytuff?
    Wigglytuff?
    Wigglytuff?

    Honestly?

    I only like jigglypuff and that only because of its character in the anime back then. But its evolution is just... non-existant pretty much? Do you have a story for it?

    if you complain about english names, don't try to look at the german ones....
    srsly most of pkmn names since gen3/gen4 sound better in english than in german.

    imo doublade(the name) is a lil bit funny ^^

    I would have like to have seen the other eeveelution. So We've gotten at least 1 new pokemon(counting megas) revealed each week this month. What else does everyone hope to see announced in the last 3 weeks?

    Final stage for starters is at the top of my list. Maybe one a week?

    That right there, my friend, is a little strange to say, don't you think?

    But yeah, if it evolves again, I bet it will be a trio again.

    new interview. it was in japanese so may be a few translation errors

    1. Pokémon gain experience even when the opposing wild Pokémon is caught (as stated in another interview). A caught Pokémon gives the same experience points as a defeated one.
    2. Sky Battles are limited to Flying-type Pokémon and those with the Levitate ability (as previously confirmed). Some moves can't be used.
    3. There is an adjustment to the inheritence system of breeding.
    4. Ghost-type Pokemon can freely escape from battle without being influenced by Shadow Tag. (The official website mentioned trapping moves.)
    5. The item Exp. Share will revert to Exp. All as in Generation I, where when one Pokémon holding this item participates in battle, all other Pokémon in the team receive experience as well. Unlike in Generation I, the experience is not split but rather received by all Pokémon. This means that the participating Pokemon receive 100% experience, while non-participating Pokémon receive 50% experience.
    6. When distributing new moves and abilities, priority was given to new Pokémon.
    7. The CGI style is different from that of Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Battle Revolution, because those games were supposed to emulate "realism within fantasy". Since the handheld Pokémon series is supposed to be accessible to everyone, battles were made "cuter".
    8. The standard selection process for Pokémon to be Mega-Evolvable is based on three points: visual looks, popularity and game balance.
    9. The power-up of Mega-Evolved Pokemon is meant to elevate them to the class of legendary Pokémon, hence the restriction of only one Pokémon being allowed to hold a Mega Stone during battles.
    10. The timing to Mega-Evolve is selectable.
    11. Some moves, with focus on special ones, have had their power and accuracy revamped.

    It's brilliant actually. Tons of exp more.

    It's decided: I don't like mega-evolutions.

    How exactly will "legendary" pokemon megas fit into OU is beyond me. Having a mega-venusaur for instance will be the wall of eternity. What the fuck are they thinking? I guess we only can wait and see.

    they were thinking little kids brains would melt when their favorite pokemon get even bigger and cooler. and they were right.

    meta game matters very little when it comes to things like this, its the last thing they think of.

    and trust me, even if some of the older fans are a bit apprehensive little kids are losing their MINDS.

    show little kids a mega blaziken or a mega lucario and their head pretty much explodes
