    Does anyone think Game Freak missed a trick with Inverse Battles? I'd have really liked to see a Psychic type move do that, a la Magic Room, Trick Room and Wonder Room!

    Then they wouldn't be able to have a whole Battle style based around it.

    I am surprised that GameFreak is still doing ability retcons even after the Mega Evolutions. I mean, obviously the ones that get new abilities won't get Mega Evolutions, but still this is very nice. I hope the amount is at least only 10 or so less than 89 something retcons D/P did.

    Also, Ice-type is now a great type. I am amused.

    That's a cool idea... But how will it work with immunities? Will they just stay as immunities in Inverse Battles?

    Haha, yes, it's the Steel type of Wonderland.

    So i guess in inverse battles pokemon with 4x resistance become 4x weak and vice versa? Did i get that right? Cuz if thats true then tyranatar and abomasnow r great mons here. Who is becomes good?

    Ice might become a great defensive type, but offensively it'll suck - every Dragon/Flying and Dragon/Ground will quad resist it! Mind you, Dragon gains weaknesses to grass, water, fire, electric...

    WHOA Steel will SUCK defensively...that...wow...I mean, I guess it'll have great defensive stats still, but weak to almost everything...

    But that does sound really cool, an entirely different way to play...I don't remember resistances nearly as well as I remember weaknesses. Also curious about immunities. Do they become OHKO? :p

    Joe's discovery thread mentions Move Tutor, shouldn't it be Move Relearner? Or do we actually have a Move Tutor in the first set of games for the first time ever?

    The VS Seeker is in the game!
    Although it's found post-game...

    EDIT: It was actually the VS Recorder. Meh.

    pikadon92 Beware of it's tail!

    Would that explain the last gym leader using ice Pokemon? He might use this new battle to gain advantage.

    Serebii stated that you only encounter this battle with a single Psychic NPC. Gym Leaders go by the standard rules.

    False alarm! It was the VS Recorder.

    Just got my game.
    Disappointingly, you can only select the language of the game once, and need to completely restart if you want to change the language.

    Not sure if this is the right place to discuss.

    Is this the first Pokémon game that we could see DLC experimented with?
  17. Trainer Yusuf

    Trainer Yusuf VolcaniNO

    No paid DLC will be made, and no rebalancing will be made either. Masuda confirmed all of these. It is likely that we won't see any additional region patches as they decided to not have a key system because they believed that they have managed to balance the game well. Besides those, we have no clue what they will do aside from events.
  18. iKarlCPFC

    Fair enough. I didn't really think DLC is the Pokémon way.

    I hope they balance out the special events as well. Japan/America get much more than Europe.

    Potentially, however it's already been confirmed that there wont be any game-changing DLC. Masuda has said as much.

    Do we know if there will be Pokemon that aren't catchable in XY (missing Pokemon in the regional Dex, maybe even starters and legendaries) which will appear in the Friend Safari?
