Now I'm basically just legendary/Ultra Beasts soft resetting for the disaster that will be post Pokebank online (aka Pokemon Showdown right now) and no with Bottle Caps I don't need to worry about IV's as much.

But they're looking to be a pain in the *** to get which doesn't look fun lmao.

i'm pretty far into the game, and i don't know if this has been answered before, but uh.... i killed tapu koko on accident, (and of course i didnt save after i beat the elite four) but lillie is telling me that she's "sure we'll meet again in battle someday"? does this mean that i can rebattle it, and if i can, where/how?

It can be re-battled after rebeating the Elite Four.

No one probably knows yet, so this is likely going to be speculation, but...

I keep hearing things about how there's "no national dex." I can't confirm myself, since I'm still early-ish in the game. Is it possible that, in January when Bank launches, that connecting with Bank will make a national dex unlock in Sun/Moon?

There's no National Dex in the games themselves. It would have been found by now if there was.

I'm guessing it'll just be put in via update.

Gen 7 FUN FACT

So Apparently in the double battle with Hau against a Mudsdale and Pelipper, if Hau has a Primarina, when he uses Primarina's Z-move, the game recognizes it as a support move (I guess because it heals burn?) so Hau will launch the Z-move against your Pokemon, normally 1HKOing it and leaving a very frustrated individual behind the 3DS.

I was very confused when this happened, though it was going to some twist in the story over mind control lol. Or a bug.

Glad it didn't only happen to me.
 
Not doing this to bump my posts at all, doing this as support from one fan to others because spoiler alert I don't even have the game yet (so mods feel free to delete this post and add this information elsewhere if you feel it necessary):

I have yet to play the game for myself GOSH DARN WHY DO WE STILL COUNT AS EUROPE ANYWAY?!, but have seen some reports of saving glitches in Sun and Moon games.

The current locations I would advise you avoid saving at are:
• any Pokémon Centre
• the Battle Tree

It is advised that you avoid saving in the aforementioned locations until a patch is released. Now get back to playing the game!

pfft... i picked rowlett, so nothing like that happened to me. that's kinda funny, though. wasnt that fight after he called out faba for doing something stupid?
 
So...the most annoying thing that could happen to me occured...

Found a Minior. Caught it with no problems. I'm about to leave the grass when another Minior shows up. Only difference is, this one is shiny. I throw a Quick Ball which fails, and then the Minior proceeds to self destruct in my face...

Dang. :( I can relate there. Ran into a shiny Weezing in the Safari Zone in Soul Silver and it ran away from me. I hope you can find another one.

Anyone in the UK had their order shipped yet? Mine is meant to be here tomorrow, but is still 'Unshipped' according to Game... :(

I ordered with Nintendo, its dispatched, gets to Yodel at midnight, and attempts delivery tomorrow, but no one is home tomorrow which means it won't be delivered and I'll have to get it Thursday or Friday, which has absolutely p****** me off, in fact, my hype is dying.

I got the email saying it was dispatched around 3pm today, my sister is getting it from Game and I think her's said that it would be here tomorrow, they're quite consistent with preorders(at least where I did)

Not quite sure how it is with Yodel, but Amazon's policy is that if no-one's in and they don't require a signature (i.e. product/s under £50) and it will fit through your letterbox, they'll just skip it through. Fingers crossed for you either way!

Mine was dispatched yesterday morning but Amazon are being careful this time. Mine's being held just outside my local carrier radius :/

I bought the new 3DS with mine so its over £50. Was thinking about pulling a sicky.

Just like they added the Data of the ORAS Megaevolution to X/Y to allow those games, which were released in the same generation, to have proper compatibility?

Those make sense though. They've never gone back and added compatibility for forms (mega evolution are essentially forms) to previous games. I know XY are the first patchable Pokemon games, but still.

They've never NOT had a National Dex, not since the National Dex came into existence with Gen 3. And seeing as all of the non-Ash-Greninja stuff will be accessible starting in January to Sun/Moon...

Except this situation is much difference. There's always been a National Dex, and it would barely take any work to implement, so I can't see why they'd just remove it completely.

What I don't understand is why Rotom isn't in the Alolan Pokedex itself and give its own entry.
