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

    I mean from what I’ve remember they’ve been doing this for ages. Blaze kick and Leaf blade were once upon a time Blaziken line exclusive and Sceptile line exclusive and later those moves were given to more and more Pokémon. I think the point has always been to just be like a temporary exclusive move. I like other Pokémon getting these moves because it’s never made any sense for anything besides legendaries to be getting a move that not one of the other 800-something Pokémon can learn.

    Interesting. Is any other Pokémon at a BST of 100? I don’t recall ever knowing about anything that low

    Just peeked at the stats for my potential walkthrough team.
    Not disappointed, only if frosmoth BST and speed was a bit higher (nice hidden ability though). No news about how to find Pokémon with hidden abilities?

    The closest is whishiwashi with a bst of 175, followed by sunkern with a bst of 180.

    They confirmed that the starters are shiny locked.

    What the heck they delete some moves from existence?

    Return being gone will destroy the competitive viability of most Normal types.

    Eh, never liked Return or Frustration anyways. They're not super effective on anything, besides there's far better normal moves out there.

    Most of them are either signature moves or Z-Moves.

    Hidden Power, Wake-Up slap, Magnet Bomb etc. Great, Gamefreak >_<
    If Switch has much more memory capacity why they'd gone Let's Go route with pretty limited movepools?
    Not counting extintion of Toxic as TM and other negative things to cimpetitive side of game

    They did dirty by removing moves too, like come on. Great to see some pokemon not removed (rest of the kanto starters), but could have done without mewtwo.

    But yay Meltan is in!

    Maybe the foreign ~30 Pokémon will be Max Raid events?

    Interesting. I’ve always sort of seen them as having a sister/brother dynamic. I wonder how they’ll interact in the story.

    Wow, over dramatic much? It's only a few moves ( most of which were signature and z moves, but you seem to conveniently ignore that).

    It’s okay people are entitled to their opinions, I find that it’s a human issue that we love to obsess over what’s missing rather than what’s there. Which is why people are so upset. These games could have every single Pokémon in the games and all the moves, and people would still find something to be outraged by. So I say let them be.

    And before y’all tell me that you’re allowed to cry wolf because you’re paying for a product, save it. If you’re really that upset just don’t buy it and move on while the rest of us enjoy the games. Thanks

    Can Anyone spoil me the final parts of the game?
    Specifically
    How the Champions tournament works? Like who do we face first? Hop, Marnie or Bede? Also the rest of the battles we face after that up to the end credits

    I don't see why they excluded moves like Return, Hidden Power, & Pursuit. Even though I don't like it, I can understand the exclusion of Z Moves. None of the aforementioned moves were broken or annoying to deal with so I can't see why they were removed

    Maybe they’ll bring back HP reworked and you’ll be able to change type by letting them smell an insence or some ****

    I wonder what kind of **** they’d have to smell to change their hidden power o_O
