...Are we sure that's the full list? Because Rowlet and Popplio get new abilities, but Litten doesn't? That seems very odd.

Hmm, I don't think that matters too much. It's not like Litten is completely missing out on a hidden ability, it's just that the ability it has already exists.

 

We're not 100% sure that's the full list, but for a different reason. Who knows if they did have some more hidden Pokemon (although it's unlikely) and they just haven't been leaked by those that have already played the game?

 

We don't have the movesets of the new Pokemon yet, so there's still some things to learn.

remind me to avoid this topic like the plague on friday since if this is the info you guys are getting BEFORE the game comes out (which ofr spoiler reasons i'm not looking at) then god knows what will be discussed when murica does get it tomorrow.

 

for now all i know is i'm using liten and i might se that white gorilla thingy otherwise whatever i see that i like i'll go for thats how i did my first X playthrough, if i want to get a proper team i can do so aftergame or in a 2nd playthrough

I think it's fair that we continue to use spoiler tags so everyone feels comfortable. I don't want to be spoiled about the story, so anyone that discusses it should put it in spoiler tags.

But then there's still also pokedex spoilers which I don't mind seeing, so I guess we need to specify what kind of spoiler we'll be using.

Also, JinZ, thank you! I finally get to get creative with the new generation - was looking quite hard for that. I've got a different ideal team now, I might post it later.

Bump. Stuffal is so cute. And with the last of the starter Z crystals being Grass, it seems like they really wanted to push Rowlet into being the most disliked.

All I know is Mimikyu and two of the starters WILL be on my final team. Still working out kinks for who the rest of mine will be...

So, anyone else notice that so far the hardest totem was Mimikyu? I mean, a lot of people have had problems with Lunantis, but i found Salazzle and Mimikyu to be more scary for me.

Still gotta wait one more day until it comes out here :weary:

 

In the meantime, I've been getting to know the new pokemon a little better - Not to a huge extent, but I've been playing the Little Cup format on Showdown with my brother.

However! I will say that Samson is actually cool to have follow you around. Same with Lillie, who has a pretty significant design change that i really like.

Next up! Gamefaqs is lit up with complaints and Meh's for Battle Tree. I know i don't care about it, but I do find that starting out the curve at fully competent teams and set-ups is a bit overwhelming. My main issue with that is actually the mega stones. They are all behind the 64 bp pay wall, which likely means beating Red multiple times for them. Once I actually start my Ice Type run, would you guys mind if I did a thread about it?

While I feel the Destiny Knot should have been obtainable outside buying it, I'm fine with the increased difficulty of the Battle Tree. If anything, they should have made Battle Royal easier since it's already a gimmick.

I haven't got to the battle tree yet but if it's really strong then I really can't wait. I haven't finished the game yet but I really want to start breeding.

How on earth do you breed good IVs without a 6IV ditto though? That hacked one I got in Pokemon Y was so necessary... But wasn't there something about SOS chaining not only giving a higher shiny chance and hidden ability but also better IVs?

And Gerdat, of course we don't mind. It's nice to have a place to write a sort of diary for these playthroughs. I personally suck at replying, but I always read and enjoy them.

Your first battle as you enter the battle tree, before even starting the actual thing, is against a lvl 65+ team.

As for chaining you can get up to 4 IVs, I believe.

That is correct, you can get up to 4 IVs from SOS chaining, somewhere around 30-40 battles.

 

 

And yeah, the difficulty spike immediately after beating the Elite 4 is insane. Dexio will wreck you at least once. >.>

In the battle tree it's not scaled down to level 50? That's a bit odd.. Do you get exp then?

I just beat the third grand trial, looks like one more saga and I should reach Poni island soon..

4IVs after that much chaining? Oh boy. Although in hindsight I don't think IVs should be that accessible anyway. Although.. In hindsight.. It's just a game and if I'm going to spend time trying to do something there's no reason for it to take 50x longer than it could. I mean, it's only for now anyway. I'm obviously going to transfer my Ditto over when Bank gets updated.

And damn Guzma.. Really making me want a Golisopod.
