    Ah I see. Thanks for finding it.

    Well it's kind of sad that it's become so uber competitive. It's why some fans prefer to just breed Pokémon instead of battling (that's kind of myself at this point).

    Not like i care much about this book but i have to note in case someone might wondering...

    Corocoro leak here


    And as always, you want something new? nope!

    ...I guess that super strong Steel type move artwork is new, maybe?

    Anyway, the news might drop without warning since last time Gigantamax just drop out from nowhere, i guess you can expected real news from that, and no more that they have to announcement before just like SM era...

    Edit : Oops! didn't noticed Joe are faster than me, busy at work, just take a chance when boss won't looking and check the internet around, my bad.

    Wait, you like prime numbers? Thought it was just me left...

    Not sure how I feel about giga whatever maxing being a special ability only certain specimens from a given species are able to harness. It depends on how’s it’s obtained but it could make obtaining battle ready Pokemon harder when the games for the most part have been making it easier. Something like this would be the last thing the competitive scene needs.

    I hope there is steel gym... and well... it's time for dark gym.

    However, until now, we still don't know the type of box legendaries yet.

    Excuse me but what in the world are you talking about? I have to ask you an honest question: have you ever played XY or SM? Like, have you ever seen those games? Because that's PRECISELY what they did - they straight up reused animations from XY for all pokemon (other than the new ones, obviously)!

    Good gracious, the lengths some people go to defend GameFreak... And then you wonder why others call you blind followers.

    This is my last message here for now. After all I've said and presented people like you STILL act like I said nothing. You're denying anything and everything GF's critics present as arguments. You deny FACTS.
    I'm out of here.

    People, please use THIS THREAD for anything Dexit, "higher quality animations", and other related discussions. This kind of discussion is honestly getting tiresome.

    From the CoroCoro leak that was posted earlier, in the 3rd and 4th pictures, aren't those new Pokemon? I haven't played XY or BW/B2W2 yet and I honestly have never gone through the entire national dex. Seems like I might need to though, so I don't know if the bottom left in picture 3 and the bottom right of photo 4 are new pokemon

    Edit: Sorry, I can't seem to post links and I haven't been on the forum very long, so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. If I can get them to work, I will do my best haha.

    Another thing is, though, IV breeding is a strictly player-spawned endeavor, and is neither endorsed nor encouraged by the game.

    Thus, there is no real way for the games to support something that it itself has no mechanic for.

    What about destiny knot, power items, and hyper training? I'm thinking they definitely have already endorsed IV breeding. It's obviously not going to be brought up during the main story due to being a higher level player thing to do, but otherwise if they're bringing out items to help with IV breeding, they're definitely encouraging it a little more than not at all.

    I think the game's certainly endorsed IV training no doubt, but breeding I'm not so sure about. At least not in the 'mass production' sense most players who breed are into.

    Doesn't Hyper Training kind of totally negate the breeding aspect and render it unnecessary except for Hidden Power typing?

    Breeding is also essential for Egg Moves.

    Welp. UK Switch Lite Price is £200.... what is the point then? I am back in the same situation, that is a lot money to just play Pokemon & I may aswell just pay £80 extra to get the Switch proper then. Eurgghhh just feels cursed at this point me not playing the game day1.

    I'm just gonna wait for a price reduction on the Switch Lite, thankfully it's not as bad as the main switch. Hoping to be able to also try Minecraft on it.

    200 is too much in my opinion.

    Maybe they'll ninja announce a new SwSh full switch model soon. The Sword and Switch colors are not quite the same as the blue/red joycons?

    Waiting for a price cut on just-announced hardware (itself $100 cheaper than its parent model, so I’m not sure how much lower someone might think it would realistically go) is setting yourself up for a potentially prolonged wait. A year or so at minimum, easily.

    Well with Ferrothorn and Toxapex, two defensive mainstays are confirmed for the games, which is nice. I'll get to see my shiny Regenerator Toxapex in HD. ^_^

    We also got to see Dynamax Charizard.
