lol i usually refer to them as the legendary dogs but didnt know if thats still a term for them, but entei, suicune and raikou are whom i'm talking about.
I don't have USUM, just SM, but did the legendary beasts really lose their hidden abilities?
outside of fake out and other flinching moves, inner focus seems to be too much of a downgrade to the dogs' hidden abilities. pressure and inner focus have limited use while the elemental absorbs had more use to begin with.
did any other pokemon get nerfs in USUM?
Gengar losing Levitate was a bit of a nerf (although I guess it's now immune to Sucker Punch in Psychic Terrain). Also Regigigas lost Power-up Punch in USUM if you want the black-clover Regigigas. Talonflame also got a bit nerfed with the change to Gale Wings, which now only works on full HP. Mega Kangaskhan got hit pretty hard with the nerf to Parental Bond (and lost Power-up Punch like Regigigas), it's not all that good anymore. Sylveon and Mega Gardevoir lost a bit of Pixelate power, Smeargle lost Dark Void, and Darkrai got nerfed with a Dark Void that's now only 50% accurate. Mega Sableye lost the Prankster boost on the mega evolution turn. For the rest it's primarily status that's been nerfed. Evasion is worse now than ever before with new moves like Smart Strike, Darkest Lariat, and Z-Moves ignoring it, paralysis now only halves speed rather than reducing it by 75%, confused pokémon only hit themselves 1 in 3 times now, and burns now only do 1/16th of damage each turn.
Is there any way to rename the pictures you take in Alola Photo Club? Or are they always named after the species of Pokemon that was in the picture with your trainer?
thank you for the reply. some of these nerfs were done in SM so i know of them but i rarely if never used signature moves. those i wasnt aware of those evasion nerf VS signature moves. how much was pixialte boosting the power of the moves before? i didnt run hyper voice on my set and chose moon blast instead.
Does the gender of the special Rockruff matter when it comes to passing on Own Tempo to offspring?
Pixelate, Aerilate, etc. boosted by 30% in 6th gen and 20% in 7th gen. It's a small nerf, the abilities are generally still worth it because they often also mean you get STAB on the moves now. I think Aurorus is the only one where it's now no longer worth it to run, and it's better to run Snow Warning Blizzard over Refrigerate Hyper Voice.
I just got to the point where I can switch battle styles. I want to switch to the Left hand style, which means I have to beat Ilmia (I'm assuming a second time). In my play through of Sun, I had absolutely no issue with this/finding him as the style was there when I got to the city. In USun however, I never could find Ilmia to beat a second time. He doesn't appear to be at his house or by the dock. Any idea what I missed or where he might be?
