    The friendly rival skit were done best by Barry and Gen 5's Crew. Wally felt like a student, which was an interesting take on the concept tbh. Honestly wish Hau is kinda like an ADHD-less version of Barry. I remember him saying something along the lines of "We won't lose that easily" in one of the trailers so....

    I would be so disappointed if Hau is just a happy loser. I'd love to see him get really excitable over battles, yet is kind of a sore loser. I could also see his goal being to be the next Kahuna of Melemele, but feels like he isn't strong enough, after losing to you.

    I never said they had similar builds? Clearly this'll just go in circles lol, we'll see and I'll take the L if all these obvious hints towards something means nothing.

    I could see Hau feeling sort of depressed because he wants to live up to Hala's strength, but can't because of the player always beating him. It would be a nice way to see how he deals with the pressure of being the Kahuna's grandson.

    I would be fine with that, it would give him some more depth than just being some kid that becomes friends with you and battles you for fun a few times.

    Because of the whole festival thing at the beginning, I can definitely see Hau as a more competitive rival.

    What I would like is the general characters of Pokemon Sun and Moon to use mainly Alolan pokemon. I am ok with them using past generation pokemon but I just feel that last generation even though there were few new pokemon there were too many past generation pokemon used by the characters when they could have easily been replaced by the pokemon from that generation.

    While I understand what you mean, remember that, in-game, the world is not separated by generation. All of the Alola pokemon, Gen VII and previous gens alike, are native to that region. That would be like saying the Alolans ONLY use pokemon that are unique to Alola and ignore all of the other pokemon that live there. That would be a pretty strange culture. As far as the game characters are concerned, Garchomp is just as much an "Alola pokemon" as an Alola Ninetales or a Mimikyu.

    I wish we knew what other Pokémon Gladion uses.

    janejane6178 XY over SM (ew) ANYDAY!!!! <3 (Anything actually)

    Maybe he will use the stronger starter against you?

    clbgolden12 Alolan (and soon to be Galarian) trainer

    At this rate I doubt so, I think he'll just change Silvally's typing to the type SE against our starter instead.

    Instead of throwing random Corphish on their team like they did with Tierno? lol

    I really hope they stick to only having Alolan Pokemon with the main characters, except for Trial captains/type specialists seeing as there'll probably not be enough of certain types.
     
  13. Huckleberry

    Huckleberry Poison Trainer

    Corphish wasn't random for Tierno. It's native to Kalos and learns Swords Dance, which is Tierno's schtick. Like I said before, to a Kalosian, Corphis is just as much a Kalos pokemon as Furfrou is. You're seeing it from a meta point of view, which wouldn't fit well into the actual feel of the game world being a living place.

    Yeah. That'd be nice. Or he'd just keep it Normal. If he's going to change Silvally's type, then I hope it's Dark or something.

    Wonder who Kahili is. A golfing genius and strong battler off conquering the world eh? Not in Alola now, so might not be relevant, or maybe they're just not there for the demo.

    Hou was confirmed to have a Pichu though... so I suppose Alolan Raichu count as an Alolan Pokemon, but to me that's like saying Mega Pokemon are Kalos Pokemon

    After playing the demo I want to say that I really like how expressive every character is. Not only the important ones like Plumeria, but all the regular trainers too.

    I have been wondering if we're going to see Ash in the games. Since we have Ash-Greninja in the games and he is the OT plus the fact that he was in the concept art with Litten3 and Mallow.

    I dunno, I found it hilarious that every single Team Skull member seems to have some kind of seizure when they're talking to you, but on the other hand the ridiculously exaggerated emotes Hau does kind of annoyed me pretty quickly.

    Aetius Sky Emperor

    Speaking of Team Skull, its members are simply hilarious! LOL
    Loving the expressions too!
    Too bad the same can't be said for our character....
