    The Machop line are not a human wrestlers though. They're Pokemon that happen to look like human male wrestlers. It makes perfect sense, because that's just what they are. Just as different species in the real world have different gender attributes, so too do Pokemon. No dimorphism needed.

    Still, I'm wondering why they didn't get some gender difference when Alakazam, their Psychic rival who also has masculine features, did. Yeah it was just a shorter mustache but still I'm wondering

    Alakazam may have gotten gender differences, but the gender differences it got don't matter to this discussion, as both male and female can still have a mustache. If anything, it only further proves my point that human gender attributes need not apply to Pokemon.

    You know, I did some multiplication and research regarding the Pokemon storage system, and found that the amount of Pokemon you can store in a single Generation IV game is more than twice the amount you can store in a single Generation I game. Additionally, a single Generation V game can store three times the Generation I amount, while a single Generation VII game can store four times that same amount. That means that if you filled up the storage system in the VC versions of the Japanese Red, Green, Blue, and Yellow, then used Poke Transporter to send all the Pokemon in them to either Sun or Moon, you'd have a full storage system.

    This isn't true. I was able to trade between French Blue and English Yellow.

    I just rewatched the Deoxys movie and it made me wonder imagine if Deoxys had an ability that allowed it to change forms mid-battle kinda like Aegislash's stance change. In the movie Deoxys changed to defence form when being attacked and attack form when attacking. It would be overpowered like hell.

    When I was thinking about Deoxys being playable in Smash Bros. (a pipe dream, I know), I was thinking about its form changes to different commands. I thought its weakness could be the cooldown between changing forms.

    I'm brilliant, aren't I?

    I think Deoxys might be the best random Pokémon, with no particular reason, to be a character in Smash Bros. It won't happen, but it would be awesome.

    With the current UBs, we now have sub-legendaries for all types, with Dark, Bug, Ghost and Poison having only UBs. Dark and Ghost will likely have full trios or quartets of Legendaries sometime in the distant future. (Silvally forms don't count.)

    Outside of this, with UB-Assembly and Necrozma Dusk Mane, Electric is rarer than Steel now.

    To add to that, the two Gens without Fossil Pokemon also don't have a two-stage cat Pokemon, or a butterfly/moth Pokemon, whereas all the other Gens do.

If TPCi and Nintendo still plan to release the game in 2018, and given how, in recent years, we had three games in a row per year and not a break year so far in Gen 7, it HAS to be DP remakes.

    All I'm saying is, that yes, a new console means a new gen as far as we know it, but given how GF have broken cardinal rules this gen (legendary Pokémon can evolve now/introducing new Pokémon mid-gen etc.), people should start seeing DP remakes as the first Switch main series Pokémon game as a possibility and not as something that probably won't happen because reasons. Of course that is assuming it releases in 2018.

    On-topic now, those tweets are interesting. Looking forward for a new Pokémon reveal.
    Ordinarily I’d say no, but the fact they’re introducing a Pokémon Switch game this soon does sound reasonable because they’ve been dropping Sinnoh hints in the games, in the anime (more specifically the I Choose You movie), & even in the Adventures manga this entire generation. Plus, they could use the DP remake to test out any bugs before releasing Gen 8 and pushing the Switch’s software to its limits.

    The name Megalo Tower is interesting, because Genesect's cannon was named Megalo Cannon in TCG. It comes from French shortening of the term megalomaniac.

    Edit: Rough thoughts on the moveset changes and tutors:

    -New Egg Moves: Severely lacking. There aren't a lot of species that have Electric Terrain in addition to added Terrains and some more Minerals could have gained Head Smash and Guard moves. Lack of offensive moves is another issue. Hopefully some of the changes here will be the groundwork for Gen 8 Egg Moves.

    -Moveset changes: Severely under performing, especially compared to Platinum's and B2W2's changes. Removal of repeats in most movepools is a nice clean-up, though other messed up movesets like Walrein's remain.

    -Move Tutors:

    -Old Moves: Only Defog is any noteworthy, largely because they expanded it to Rotom and Fairy-types. Telekinesis remains weak due to its lack of turns and Ally Switch is irrelevant outside of Triples. I suspect BW remakes will focus on Gen 5 moves that didn't get TMs/Move Tutors in their gen like Guard moves, now these TMs have returned.

    -Laser Focus: A much needed critical hit booster, but sadly it is not too common.

    -Stomping Tantrum: Basically this is a better Bulldoze/weaker Drill Run. Its coverage is nice, but it is far too situational.

    -Throat Chop: A very bizarre move that is for some reason given exclusively to fully evolved Pokémon, but it fulfills the Dark-type coverage we have been waiting for decades. Hopefully Chopping moves will have their own Ability, like Karate Hands or something.

    -Liquidation: This move really isn't any better than Waterfall. It will likely see usage in Sheer Force movesets, and species that don't want to lose accuracy for Aqua Tail/Razor Shell.

    Others: Burn Up Ho-Oh and Surf Pikachu are both really weird. Mind Blown looks to be very fun. Photon Geyser is cool. Plasma Fists is just a better Fusion Bolt. New Z-moves are largely a waste.

    Edit: Overall changes to Egg Groups are.

    Amorphous gets Crafty Shield.
    Bug gets Grassy Terrain.
    Dragon gets Close Combat.
    Fairy gets Power Whip, Sticky Web, Powder, Tearful Look.
    Field gets First Impression, Sacred Sword, Meteor Mash.
    Flying gets Aqua Jet, First Impression, Leaf Storm, Shadow Sneak, Phantom Force, Play Rough.
    Grass gets Misty Terrain, Heavy Slam, Night Slash.
    Human-Like gets Lunge.
    Monster gets Dragon Hammer.
    Water 1 gets Sticky Web, Power Trip.
    Water 2 gets Guard Swap.
