The differences may be small but they do improve the experience. The new partners can certainly change things up. All the new starters get a egg move which makes them a better choice over the usual starters (e.g. Mewoth has Hypnosis).
The ability to play as Shaymin is also great because when you are in the Sky forme you are always moving at double speed. It's like having an Agility boost all the time. There are plenty of other little things in the game that give it that edge over Time.
hi i've seen some of your sprite and scratch work and was wondering if you could help me out with some. i'm ok at mixing and fusions but i still can't get the hang of scratching. if you could just contact me at my email or messenger because my computer won't let me login on here so i'm doing this on my ps3.
