Pokemon Sword & Shield RUMOR & SPECULATION Thread [Spoiler-Prone Area]

    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.

    So with Indeedee existing it makes Audino utterly pointless. It almost was that already without its Mega form. Also yeah saw Morpeko's stats and its probably worse than Plusle/Minun. What a way to waste Electric/Dark typing. Also not understanding why Garbodor's G Max move would cure poisoning that seems like a waste. Was hoping for a physical attack move that would toxic an opponent

    I didn't do the math on that and now it has to be on my team especially since it has Cheek Pouch. Greedent is surprisingly good

    Almost every Galar Pokémon is competitively viable and I love it. Can't wait to learn and try out new strategies.

    Cheek Pouch honestly is a great ability but have been on barely viable pokemon. Though that being said had some success with Diggersby and Dedenne. But definitely they didn't showcase the full potential of that ability

    I'm really glad they let you trade over the regional forms' "original" forms because although I love Galarian Darmanitan, Sheer Force Life Orb Darmanitan will always be a go to for me.

    The TMs and TRs are really interesting to me. I like how they approached these essentially reworked Move Tutors

    I'm very excited for the changes to the TM system. The last time it had such big changes were in Gen V, with reusable TMs.

    I know what TMs are, but what are TR's?

    Technical Records. They are like TMs but are used for moves usually Move Tutors would teach. You can purchase them but they break after using it one time.

    So Gigantamax Gengar is a real thing and it's cool as hell. Like imagine Guzzlord meets Gengar

    Gigantamax Flapple looks fun!

    It does look like the Apple worm Gigantamax from the guidebook, which it shares with Appletun.

    basically they are move tutor but you buy the TR and then use it on whatever pokemon it can be used on it. It breaks after use, however you can buy more
