    Ice types will rise this gen!! All other types be afraid!

    For real though, they got some good support.

    Just curious but which pictures can't be posted?? The post said certain pics but doesn't specify. I'm assuming it's the pokemon pics but idk.

    Just would be safest to not share any pictures from the leaks at all. No matter if it's Pokemon, menus, or whatever.

    Same, I had briefly looked at some of them but not all. And I’ll likely forget them until I actually play through the game.

    I’m so excited about the third legendary!!! This might already be my favorite legendary ever, and I only know its color, typing, and a tiny bit of its shape! It’s something I’ve been wanting in the series for quite some time. I’ve never been so immediately hyped about a Pokémon before, it’s crazy.

    I get the feeling Dragapult requires pretty different moves between single battling and double battling, more so than usual. That being said, a spread move may still be useful even with low power like Dragon Darts. It can use Dragon Darts if both opponents havelow HP to knock them both out at once, but taking into account Dragapult's mad Speed, you are very likely to be in control of when that happens. At a base Speed of 142, I believe Dragapult is the fastest Pokémon with a spread move that doesn't also hit the ally (though anyone can correct me if I'm wrong).

    But isn't Jirachi already a Pokémon themed on a wishing star?

    A bit of a heads-up: Ice Face apparently only works on physical attacks. Special attacks will still pass right through that big head of Eiscue's. You have to be very careful whom you're up against, and similarly, an opponent can easily counter Eiscue by sending out a special attacker.

    That's actually a theme I'm seeing with the stats of the Generation VIII Pokémon. If it isn't a glass cannon, then it likely has a very high stat on one side but below-average to low on the other. I'm seeing this with Perrserker, Galarian Stunfisk, Sandaconda, Falinks, and Duraludon on the physical side (high Defense, low Sp. Defense) and Alcremie, Cursola, Cramorant, and Frosmoth on the special side (low Defense, high Sp. Defense). Switching will be even more important than ever, even in double battles.

    Lots of interesting moves, really want to know who learns what.

    Are the TRs re-purchasable? Much like move tutors?

    Very true, and that is what other pokemon on the team woukd be for. This is where switching out would really come in handy.

    Good point, btw.

    There is a new move known as false surrender. 80bp, 10pp, physical dark type move, never misses.
    Polteagiest has really good special attack, alongside a new move called tea time, which makes both opponents and allies eat their berries if there holding one.
    Mr.Rime has a new ability called Screen cleaner, which gets rid of light screen, reflect and aurora veil on both sides of the field. It's a mixed attacker with some decent bulk as well.
    G Mr.Mime and Mr.Rime are known as the dancing and comedian pokemon respectively.
    Some icon's for y-comm have been leaked, showing various trainer class types, some of which haven't made an appearance in a while, like artists and doctors.
    There is a new item known as throat spray, which raises Sp.Atk for a pokemon after it uses a sound based move.
    Falinks is known as the formation pokemon and can be found on route 8 It's also 9 foot 10 inches. G Yamask can be found on route 6.

    We won't know if there will be Alolan Forms in the game until a datamine happens.

    That's insane! There's six of them!

    I think that's a measurement of length rather than height, which is how serpentine Pokemon are measured.

    Wonder if that means that Kanto Rapidash, Mr. Mime, etc. can just be traded over if the files are in. Hoping so.

    The leaked dex listed Cofagrigus and Persian, likely meaning that the original variants can be transferred over. There's also the Gigantamax regular Meowth.

    The stats this gen (from what we see, they aren't confirmed yet) are very weird. Not only is mostly everything decently mixed (I dont think anything so far has had a garbage attack or special attack stat), but there are so many pokemon with similar stat spreads. Cursola and Polteageist are very similar with stat spreads, even have the same type and ability. Alcremie and Indeedee have very similar stat spreads. Even Mr. Rime falls in this. They are all slower pokemon with high special attack and special defense and low to decent everything else.
