My biggest problem at the moment is just how darn many grass, water and fire Pokémon we got!
We need some more poison, fightning, ground, ice and faerie in my oppinion.
Poison only got a single 5*, same goes for fightning and ground.
Ice does have some more as does faerie but we got no real striker for ice besides a seasonal and faeries are just getting their striker now.
They got a ground top 4 member, koga or his daughter synga suit option and a Galar gym leader as options for these spots.
And for fightning as you said give the prof his mask and a Hawkalucha! :D

In general they got so much unused potential when it comes to sync-pairs!
Would love to see Juan in the game, since he is such a obscure character really.

I think he works fine. I did that battle with my usual ice team of Summer Daigo, Christmas Mei and Prim, didn't have too much trouble. Do you have him at 3/5 so he sets hail on entry?
No. Only 1/5
That is true, team recuperation would be busted and would make potion mostly redundant. I just want an actual good user for that passive though since it's hard to use on Lillie.
I take Clefairy isn't that bulky?

To be honest, I haven't used normal Lillie that much aside from the Palentine Event. Since I have her much better NY version, I see no use for Clefairy

By the way, looking at sync grid helper, it's possible getting Stagerring + MGR 9 + All healing nodes + Recuperation 1 in one build. Since she triggers Main character theme skill with Red and Serena, I know what to use on Legendary Arena and CS. Will probably use Leon instead of Red on Villa since MP Rekindle is more useful there.

I mostly use Clefairy to A. Debuff the opponents since there is a grid for that at Sync 3. B. Buff accuracy and damage to kingdom come and C. EX buff.

It's mostly a buffer and an offensive support, that's what it is good for and why I use regular Lillie... regularly. (Amazing with any pair with semi low accuracy.)

She also hits PRETTY hard for a support.

If you use all the support units as the same, you're going to get disappointed.

As for the Royal, here is thing. Anime Teams do NOT equal game teams. The Royal doesn't have an Incineroar in the anime and it's kind of a thing that Kukui picked the starter STRONGER against the MC's starter.

It's implied Elio is Alola's MC. It's either Hawlucha or Snorlax.

This is the similar problem I had when people were expecting Lusamine to have Nihilego, despite ignoring everything SM's ending had and ignoring how Masters IS using USUM's route. So Pheromosa and Bewear made the most sense instead.

It's not a stretch to say Lusamine totally stylized her looks to resemble Pheromosa's.

Every adaptation has disprove that. (Manga, "Family picture with Lusamine and the kids looking the same then as in the point in the story" Anime "She look like she did currently anyways." and Ultra "Obsession never got to a critical point.") Plus Masters points the clothes issue to be something else. (Narcissist that doubted her kids fashion taste.)

They kind of stated that Pheromosa came out of nowhere too and it's pretty obvious the family came from Ultra's outcome.

Let me rephrase that.

It's not a stretch to say Lusamine totally looks like Pheromosa by sheer(?) coincidence.

Hairs off, colors off and even the clothes pattern is off.

The same could be said about Lillie and Nihilego if we want to nitpick every bit, though.

News flash, Lillie's old look was NEVER based on the jellyfish.

Hats off, patterns off entirely, dress is off.

The whole point about Lillie's look in the games (both sets) and Manga is that Lusamine became that much of a control freak and was so scared of change that she didn't want her kids to change in fear of losing them too.

Bulk isn't too much of a problem since I don't tank with her, it's mostly the fact that there is no real point in syncing with her so the passive is wasted. Every team I've tried her on, there were better options for sync. Her buffs are nice but I just use SS Elesa and Lead for accuracy buffs since I find them better.

NY Lillie doesn't really have the same function as regular but yeah she's pretty much a staple for me in CS and I use her way more often. Need another support candy to finally unlock Master Healer for her.

Edit: Beating Latias with C Iris was so satisfying. I used her in a full force battle before but they don't let her shine as it's hard to accumulate debuffs. This battle on the other hand was perfect for her.

Man, this Arena was annoying. I speed-read the tips and I didn't noticed Latias would get the Invulnerable passive if it buffs too much. So I just found myself losing with Hypnosis Red Team.

After quickly looking on Reddit, found out we are supposed to debuff Latias, so I end up using Sygna Kanto Trio.

Blue's tank prowess surprised me. It lost the endure but after the passive healing Leaf gave him (it refreshed a lot on my attempts) and one of his healing passives, it still tanked two more hits before Red finished Latias.

We have enough Fairy Types in this game. It seems like every major update adds a new Fairy Type pair.

Giving us Sycamore was perhaps more than enough to fill in the atrocious Fairy-type void populated by Mina and Valerie.

Lillie, (She's not a bad pair, use her as an offensive support and she will deliver,) Palentines day girls, Summer Lyra (Before she got rendered obsolete by Palentines.) and finally, our angel Diantha.

And Pheonix, try using a debuffer like Champion Iris or Lillie. Worked for me for 2 of the 3 matches and in the 3rd, I got Latias so low that Sycamore, Valentine Dawn and Valentine Serena finished up

Don't forget Gloria, somewhat.

Though the problem here is that only Lillie is a Fairy-type Sync Pair that can be obtained easier at any time. The others? All locked in Poke Fair/Seasonal banners.

I don't have Champion Iris yet. She didn't spark in the dailies. Might do a couple of multis on her banner tomorrow (the last day) though. Really need to play safe since BunMay's coming.

Either way, since I've finished already with Kanto Trio, I'd probably save her for Champion Stadium matches.

I used Platane/Akagi/Giima for the Latias battle, it went pretty well. Platane is stupidly unkillable.

Hachiku can probably stand in for Giima for a 100% f2p team too.

There is a reason your saving your money and gems, right?

All for naught when the banners refuse to give the units we desire. I pretty much will not spend another dollar when the pull rates are atrocious and the banners gleefully expect people to spark after using...what, 20k gems? I think it's much larger than that, but not even a month of saving all gems is enough.
