I hope that one day Frustration will no longer be a TM.

Not only it completely goes against the Pokemon concept as a whole (they're meant to have a bond with you, not hate you to the max), but also, it's only useful in an extremely specific situation.

And oh, Confide. That move was useless.
I'll admit Frustration is pretty useless in-game being as it's a pain in the *** to maintain 0 Happiness, but competitively it has a niche on Normal types and -ate ability users as a strong, reliable STAB that screws Ditto over if it doesn't set its happiness to 0.

Yeah, that's the extremely specific situation I mentioned.


There really aren't any Flying types that get access to Fly without getting a better Flying move though, especially given 2 consecutive Aerial Aces massively outdamages Fly.
Landorus. Really annoyed me that it's a Flying type yet it literally only has Fly as its Flying move. Thundurus is also bad, having only Fly and Sky Drop.

Does anyone know the types of the pokemon found?
No, we don't, sadly.

Because their data has been removed, if there is a way to find them, it will take some time.

Kinda called that this would be the initial reaction if we found out UBs are capturable.
I don't like using legendaries as is, it feels kind of wrong to use them to be honest. so yeah I doubt I'll ever be okay with seeing people use Ultra Beasts
I do hope GF implements a system simular to battle maison for online quick matches to ban box legendaries, except things like suicune.

Well, let's see. Are there Pokemon? Yep. Do we battle with them? We sure do. And do we participate in a quest that, while not the Gym Challenge we've done until now, remains centered on growing and getting stronger alongside Pokemon? It certainly seems like it.

A house is a house, even with a fresh coat of paint.
Jesus... can't you people accept ANY criticism? This ins't nitpicking. This is MAJOR. No gyms is MAJOR. No HMs is MAJOR.

Let me effing dislike something, would you?

Christ... I don't even remember the last time I browsed this part of the site... no, hold on... I think I was looking up information on how to get that special edition 3DS XL for XY... so, 3 years ago? Something like that...

Anyways, figures something like this would bring me back, so without further ado...

Bet we're going dimension hopping in Gen 8 fellas
Well, a tropical setting invoking entities from another dimension certainly wasn't my first thought. Curious to see where GameFreak goes after this.

What if the player actually travels into the UB's supposed dimension, like the Distortion World in Platinum?
That's the kind of plot twist I'd like to have. Maybe not the actual plot twist I'd want, but that does sound daring.

Huh. Looks like my theory on special UB pokeballs was right.
I mean, I didn't expect you'd capture them normally. Also, for only 8 of them, I figured it would be somekind of device. That being said, if there's an entirely new ball for these guys... maybe parallel dimensions is the next big step for the series? I mean, we've essentially covered everything else at this point, dimensions is something we haven't done much with.

Dimensional balls.... damn, was hoping the Ultra Beasts couldn't get caught
I mean, given the situation of their appearance, and the assumption that they're "not" Pokemon (or at least, not in the traditional sense), maybe. But still, if they're listed here in some fashion, then clearly it was intended.

I want to know why nobody is talking about the awesome new pokeball? :U
Probably still pretty recent. And it's not exactly easy to find things in 60+ pages of content. Hell, I had to sift through 30+ from where I last left off before I figured out where I was =_=;;.

Because Ultra Beasts are the worst
At least calling these Digimon is way too much of a stretch xD.

Kinda called that this would be the initial reaction if we found out UBs are capturable.
I mean, they do look really strange and kind of freaky. But that's mostly due to how unnatural they appear, along with their very alien looks and no discernible faces. With the except of like, 3 of them. In fact, ever since the very notion of these things, along with the Aether Foundation, I've found renewed interest in these games for actually providing me a solid mystery I want to know more about. Okay, sure, the reveal of them being capturable does take some mystery out, but that's only one factor to them. There's still a lot we don't know about them.
