NONE, Dunsparce looks better
Yeah but looking over the trailer...they kept the same rendition for moves such as Wish and Aura Sphere. Therefore, it would make sense that the photos above means that it is Aerial Ace.
The purple thing is meant to be the Pokemon moving upwards and downwards simultaneously (the quotes below show what I'm talking about). It doesn't have the claw marks that Shadow Claw has, and it clearly doesn't slash sideways like Night Slash. Due to graphical limitations (I assume), they weren't able to show it in previous games. This is what I mean:
This move is based on and named after Sasaki Kojiro's "Turning Swallow Cut". However, due to multiple translations, including the English Aerial Ace, the nature of the move is widely misinterpreted. This is reinforced by some of its depictions in the Pokémon anime, which do not correspond with its in-game animations and descriptions. The misinterpretation is further reinforced by the fact that it is a Flying-type move. However, many Flying-type moves do not require the user to be capable of flight (e.g. Acrobatics, Bounce), or even leave the ground (e.g. Peck, Pluck).In addition, judging by the Japanese context. It'd be hard to argue that it isn't Aerial Ace.His favorite technique was both respected and feared throughout feudal Japan. It was called the "Turning Swallow Cut" or "Tsubame Gaeshi" (燕返し lit. "Swallow Reversal / Return"), and was so named because it mimicked the motion of a swallow's tail during flight as observed at Kintaibashi Bridge in Iwakuni. This cut was reputedly so quick and precise that it could strike down a bird in mid-flight. There are no direct descriptions of the technique, but it was compared to two other techniques current at the time: the Ittō-ryū's Kinshi Cho Ohken and the Ganryū Kosetsu To; respectively the two involved fierce and swift cuts downward and then immediately upwards. Hence, the "Turning Swallow Cut" has been reconstructed as a technique involving striking downward from above and then instantly striking again in an upward motion from below. The strike's second phase could be from below toward the rear and then upward at an angle, like an eagle climbing again after swooping down on its prey. Kojiro created this technique around 1605.
Also...Aerial Ace doesn't guarantee Flying type for Chespin's line...I mean c'mon, Tyranitar learns that move...
It might just be a New Dark move(that explains why it is super effective)
Wait......Chespin being Grass/Flying? I don't think this would make sense, really. His design don't fit for someone that'll "fly" later. But i think it would be far more interesting than a Grass/Dark type. We just have Skymin with that type-combo, right? Really interesting...
Anyways, it's cool seeing how Chespin is way awesome than Turtwig and Snivy was to me. Actually, Chespin is the first Grass Starter whom I've loved since the start. None ever did that, haha!

I mean...i didn't liked most of Grass Starters at their first stage. Treecko is cool, Chikorita is personification of "Meh & Gay". Bulbasaur and Turtwig was and it is the only one whom i have liked.
God glorify this Post, haha!! I always thought Snivy was way too overrated. Serperior was "passable" but if you compare it to Torterra...But Snivy...meh.
Fair point, but maybe they actually made it look like it was an actual slash this time. Would make sense.it clearly doesn't slash sideways like Night Slash.
That is the worst stretch imaginable.Due to graphical limitations (I assume), they weren't able to show it in previous games.
Guys just curious..Grass Starters, Water Starters or Fire Starters..personally it's Grass Starters
water and grass had a lot of ups and downs, while fire to me was more balanced in both esthetics and strengths
In each gen, we have some really different starters.
But i keep my preference for Water types, until 4th gen...but it's a difficult choice, really.
5th gen had some really horrible starters, in my opinion, except by Tepig.
Squirtle, Totodile, Mudkip, and Piplup were all goods and had no downsides in their design. While, in 5th, and now 6th Gen...ugh.
But Fire Starters were also good, too.
Torchic, Chimchar and Tepig were really good, i have nothing to complain. I would like Fennekin too if his ears wasn't bigger than his head,haha!!

I've been a fan of water and fire starters and really haven't hated any of the designs (with exception to all 3 Gen 3 starters). It's really hard to tell for the first form, but I feel like Chespin might become something really epic looking. Froakie has that chance too. Fennekin's the only one Im on the fence about. I don't hate its design, I just dont think it'll compare to the other two.
