Though thinking about it, Gardevoir could actually be OU, for once. While her Speed is horrible, by OU standards, she has a good SpA, a good SpD, and Trace. She can come on in on a weakened, multiscale dragonite who hasn't set up, steal Multiscale and annihilate it with a fairy move, and then be able to take the next switch in with Focus Blast (Logical progression of Steel switch in).
I ran Gardevoir in RU with a life Orb set of Energy Ball, Shadow Ball, Psychic, and Focus Miss. WHen Nidoqueen was still there in RU, Gardevoir would be able to abvuse Sheer Forcem and has a good speed tier in there. Overall I feel liek Gardevoir is going to be the winner of Previous Gen boost lottery. I can also see Azuzu abuse Fairy Moves instead of Ice punch in OU as well.
I'm also hoping chespin's final evolution typing is not grass/dark, that is the worst typing for any grass starter(which I usually always pick). Sure you get a psychic immunity, but for what cost? An added 4x weakness to bug, and a new weakness to fighting. That thing will be weak to fire,ice,bug,fighting, and posion. I'm hoping it will be grass/steel like ferrothorn in all honestly. I got that idea from ches"pin"(pins usually spiky metal thingies) and the last evolution being something like chespike(grass/steel), I dunno me an my wild imagination.

I love Ferebebe's concept more than its actual design tbh. I don't really want the flower in the battle animation...
I really like Noivern. I just hope they do a good job with the animating and make its ears not look like its face...
Also, are using sprites still? Or will they be called something else.
The crab can also use Swords Dance. How surprising.

Same here, honestly. I feel like it would be a nice gimmick pokemon for NU
They're just going to be called 3D models, basically
Noivern is interesting, honestly.
New physical water? Crawdunt is good honestly, it just needs Aqua Jet.
Crawdaunt has Dragon Dance, lol. But it needs more speed than 55(IIRC)
My favorite is still Pancham, lol.
Yus Panchum is :3 <3

Gardevoir @ Focus Sash/Life Orb
252 SpA / 4 SpD / 252 Spe
- Fairy-type move
- Hidden Power [Fire]
- Focus Miss/Earth Power (If Gardevoir gets it next gen)/Energy Ball
Gardevoir can switch into Scizor/Gengar (Which I think will be two of the most dangerous threats next gen), take a BP/Sludge Bomb (Sludge Bomb has higher BP then Shadow Ball, and if Fairy is weak to poison...), and OHKO back with HP Fire/Psyshock.
Any one that needs testing should contact me. I will be free for the next couple of hours.
that's a little hard because your inbox is full and I have to post this here since i cannot VM you. So. Everyone excited about those like 4 new pokemon that got released after the initial ones?
Not everyone wants to be whatever the hell playable characters we are given. We get to name our characters, the story can and should be about us (though we don't get to make choices and stuff that would reflect our beliefs and stuff, of course), and not so much about Brendan or Dawn or Nate. Many people want to actually put themselves in the game, meaning wanting a decent attempt at having someone that can resemble them. Hardly perfect, what we're getting, but it's big step.
The manga can deal with giving the protagonists identity since they actually get to speak there. The anime doesn't even need to include the playable characters (as neat as that would be though), and for the most part has totally screwed over the male ones when it comes to being included anyway.
