You spin and it adds two powers to your Bag, which you use later when you like

You can spin frequently enough to build up a decent stockpile of powers as long as you're not overly reliant on them

Oh alright, so after that they're permanent? That's a little better, I don't think it should've been random to initially get them, but as long as it's frequent it shouldn't be a problem.

I take it Stakataka is going to be massively overused in 2018 VGC, given its stats.

It's basically Mega Steelix without the mega stone. Even thought its Defense starts out lower, Beast Boost covers that with just one KO. Even more so, its Attack and Special Defense are also higher. Sure, it's got two 4x weaknesses, but a (literal) wall like this is bound to be durable. Plus, there's always Weakness Policy.

I don't do VGC, but I'm damn sure itching to get my hands on this staller's dream. Of course, I'll have to trade for it, since I'm getting Ultra Sun.

I doubt it.It definitely will be NU in smogon tiers.Come on it basically a bastiodon with more attack , crap speed and i believe no recovery move.
With the prevalence of Fighting moves and water moves and earthquake (4x weak) its not going to last more than one turn.

Look at these stats and tell me
61/131/211/53/101/13 add to that Rock steel typing

Do we know why Kiawe was absent from his trial site in that video that was posted ages ago?
It's for Mina's trial. He's not there when you arrive, but returns when you interact with the Hiker.

I asked this before, but I don’t know if it was answered. For Mina’s Trial, do we have to hunt down the other Trial captains to battle them, or do they come to us?
Mina tells you were to go to hunt down down Ilima. After you win, Ilima will ask if you want to be escorted to the next trial site. If you pick yes, you are "teleported" there. This choice repeats for each Trial Captain encounter, making it very quick to power through them.

No idea what happens if you pick no. I would assume you have to hunt them yourself if it actually lets you select it rather than one of those text choices that isn't reeeeeally giving you a choice.

I’m sure that’ll be a big help fighting someone with a type advantage. And for the record, normal is my least favorite type.

the appeal of the z move in this case is that pretty much anyone on your team can use it, and no one one hala's team can resist it.

Regardless, the game does give you a few options for hala:
-Cutiefly is the designated hard counter on par with Lenora's weird field of fighting types or geodude/onix against falkner. It is 4x resistant to their primary stabs and resists Mankey & Crabrawler's Pursuit. If you grind just a smidge, you can also get a healing move that's SE against them, if you really need it
-While Vullaby/Rufflet, Pikipek, Oricorio & Spearow are all neutral resistant due to their other typing, they have a strong stab at their disposal and 2 of them have decent offenses while Vullaby has nice defenses. Oricorio is probably the relative winner here since it gets Air Cutter with good special attack and speed, and pretty-ok-for-this-time defensive stats.
-Ghosts are dangerous to keep in against Mankey & Crabrawler, but you can use a bait & switch tactic to make him waste the z move, then maybe toy with statuses. Misdreavous is fast enough and has psywave that it deal some good damage against Crabrawler. Admitidly these are more gimmicky sacrifical usages. Do completely wall Makuhita though, which is nice.

I have three questions regarding Mimikyu!

1 - In which version do we get the chance to obtain Totem Mimikyu?

2 - How many totem stickers does it require?

and 3 - Has anyone any links to where I might see a Totem sized Mimikyu just so I can see how big it really is compared to a normal Mimikyu?

Thanks guys! PS. I cannot wait for the release of these games!

Wait, that means we don’t have to wait until near endgame for Vikavolt (and Magneton for that matter)? Because that’s be pretty awesome if it’s true.

Yes. The magnetic location was moved from Vast Poni Canyon to Blush Mountain.

Yes. The magnetic location was moved from Vast Poni Canyon to Blush Mountain.

Minor thing I'm wondering- was it moved there, as in such evolutions can no longer happen at Vast Poni Canyon, or is it now both locations that allow such evolutions? Ultimately meaningless, but I want to satisfy my personal curiosity on the matter regardless.

Well, I guess that’s good; you have time to switch your team if you need to. I thought you had to fight them all at once like the E4.

I don't believe that such evolutions work at Vast Poni Canyon anymore.

I haven't read any spoilers, but I was wondering if anyone could help me out with this information. I have Pokemon Moon and I am planning to get Ultra Sun on Friday based on the version exclusives. Does anyone know if these games connect to their previous version, like for example if you had Pokemon Black and bought Black 2, you could get N's Pokemon in the wild and extra cut scenes. Because, if you get extra stuff for getting the Ultra version of the one you previously had, I might get Ultra Moon instead. Does anyone know?

I haven't heard of anything like that.

Sorry to break it to you, but there are no features like that.

Is there any way to determine what legendary/UB's world you're going into? If not, it would make it tough to use synchronize pokes for natures bc you'd need to bring like 4 for the multitudes you could run into

found Acrobatics on Route 15

definitely a nerf for stuff like Oricorio, Minior, Fletchling, Zubat compared to SM, which are now mostly stuck with terrible Flying STAB until midgame

I took the traded Hawlucha and swept with aerial ace. Also a viable option (I plan on using it for the rest of the game).

When is Mantine Surf unlocked?
