    Are there any cases, though, of Egg moves being shown in trailers? I don't recall any, but I don't recall a lot.

    There's almost always a good reason why they do, though, and I'm wagering that there's a good reason Fennekin gets Glow Punch as well. Either there's some aspect of Fennekin we don't know about (I doubt that they would be relevant), or there's some aspect to the move we don't know about (there are many).

    Well, it's a move used by Fennekin specifically, and that's what they're showing. It clearly is for Fennekin.

    About three of them, out of the many Pokemon that learn punching moves, and the many that lack limbs. Outside of the ones you're naming, those two groups of Pokemon don't intersect. When you select the few Pokemon in both groups, that's nitpicking.

Observations can only get us so far, established patterns and instances are much more easier to follow because those are what we've seen before and can easily see being kept in future instances.
    And the patterns we've seen thus far are that punching moves are typically restricted to Pokemon capable of using them, outside of the cases where a few Pokemon get them due to evolving into something that can use them, and those cases are all via Egg or tutor, which you've admitted isn't likely to be the case with Fennekin.

    On the other hand, if Glow Punch is essentially just creating a "glow that punches" (an altogether highly feasible hypothesis), then you don't need to cite a rare case only applicable in certain circumstances to understand why Fennekin is capable of using it and why it's shown using it; it can create a glow (more easily than it could leap up and rocket-fist), then the glow does the punching. How it looks and what its name is aren't the end-all-be-all, but they're nonetheless evidence, which the notion that Fennekin evolves into a biped doesn't have as of yet.

    This Glow Punch talk is kinda making me miss the Aerial Ace vs Night Slash argument

    There are some, and again, it could be a level-up move regardless.

    "Almost" is not always, in fact it's not even almost. Pokémon learning moves you think they shouldn't is not an uncommon occurrence in this series, just because you don't think Fennekin shouldn't learn a punching move doesn't mean that it can't. Also, playing by your criteria, wouldn't learning the move for its evolution count as "some aspect to Fennekin we don't know about?"

    Yes, and that's why it doesn't matter if it's a punching move, to clarify, they wanted to show Fennekin with the move whether because they wanted it to be known or that it's special to Fennekin for some reason. Now, special to Fennekin can mean a lot of things, including hinting at a bipedal stance.

    They fit exactly into the criteria I gave you, they're Pokémon related to bipeds, all of them even the ones I didn't mention. So I don't see how that's nitpicking when a criteria is already used and supported by established fact. On top of that, it comes off as silly to accuse me of nitpicking considering you're also saying "I just don't see Glow Punch as a punching move because it glows" in the same breath, you're picking out specific parts to fit your claim even though "glowing" can just be a different effect among the likes of having Fire in Fire Punch.

    And that can fit for Fennekin's evolution, there's nothing saying that Fennekin doesn't fit into the same realm as Wooper or Gastly.

    I said it has a point to it, not that it's unlikely.

    No, because your hypothesis only uses certain parts that fit it. You only address that it has "Glow" in it and that the animation's different. The former doesn't mean much on its own and needs more to be developed before hypothesis can be used and the animation, as you said, still uses the dead on punch typical of others of its type and thus just as easily (if not more so) can just be another punch with new visual effect. On top of that, you ignore that for the most part, it has a lot in common with regular punches (name and visual effect just going by observation), you're making the animation your mountain when it's just a molehill right now. It doesn't have enough to build itself on.

    Really, I'm not ignoring the "Glow" in Glow Punch, I admit there's a effect that we haven't seen yet but I'm just not pretending it's something that it's not. You can speculate that there's something new about it but don't dismiss everything else about it. Everything points to it being a punch of sorts, I don't see why you're so adamant in ignoring that.

    When is there a case of a Pokemon learning a level-up move that obviously doesn't fit, then?

    Yes, but I then went on to explain why that's not really a reason for Fennekin itself to get the move if it doesn't fit.

    So, they're showing it using a move that doesn't fit with its anatomy and won't make sense in order to dangle some sort of hint at what Fennekin might possibly become?

    I doubt that it's going to be Fennekin-specific; I feel as though it's going to be something generic.

    Right, but then this goes back to the other points - there aren't too many that learn said moves, they learn the moves via Egg or tutor, and we know the evolutions get the moves, why would they show a punching move that's probably an Egg or tutor move and associating it with Fennekin, maybe there's something about the move other than just punching that makes sense for Fennekin to get it.

    I'm building it off of pretty much everything we know so far: the move has glow in the name, said glow is shown separate from the punch itself (unlike elemental punches and such, where the element is shown as part of the punch), the Pokemon using it likely can't form an actual punch, nor does it like that's what it's even attempting to do (there's no running towards the target animation).

    A reminder: I'm not arguing that it's not a punch, I'm arguing that the user doesn't necessarily need to punch in order to use it. The idea is that punch comes out of the glow and that the move will be a special move (but one flagged as punch-based), hence the name, animations applied, and how the user is doing it.

    If it makes you more comfortable, I'm arguing that it's a punch in almost every regard, except for being physical (and maybe contact).

    The legendaries using Hyper Beam is possibly one, unfortunately it's hard to tell since almost all the Pokémon used are new ones.

    Tentacool learning Hex comes to mind. Regardless, I don't see how restricting it to just Level up moves suddenly justifies how odd some Move Tutor and TM moves that certain Pokémon can learn.

    And I already explained why that doesn't make sense.

    Because as you said, their anatomy doesn't fit learning punches but when you consider what they evolve into, then it does. Same thing can happen with Fennekin.

    Potentially yes, but we'll have to see.

    Because it's a unique move it can learn? And in the same vein, why does it have to be so special for Fennekin to learn it? Especially when special can be anything within reason.

    Again, you're assuming based on a restricted instance. Of course there's no animation for it if the Pokémon in question doesn't have the feature, I mean if Alakazam used Iron Tail, we'd still expect it to do a different animation then using its non-existent tail. Glow is a name and means little on its own, the animation doesn't necessarily equal suddenly being more special, possibly I'll agree but it could be special in a different way then you're thinking. Also, Pokémon that can't form a punch doesn't mean that it can't be a punch, instances already prove otherwise. Also, we've only seen one specific instance of a Pokémon running up with a physical attack (Froakie using Acrobat), when TalonFlame used Aerial Ace it didn't run up either.

    I was talking about from past new game speculation, like DP or BW; I don't recall any from BW, besides the shiny Raikou using Aura Sphere (the move from the event). Besides that, they stuck to STAB moves and such.

    I'm not justifying odd tutor/Egg/TM moves, I'm saying that if it's level-up (which seems pretty likely to me, given the circumstances), then it's a lot harder to justify because it's not a tutor/Egg/TM move.

    and then they only get the moves because the moves are so hard to get, which doesn't hold as much water for new Pokemon due to reusable TMs and such; it's easier to just give the evolution the move, so why does Fennekin have it, etc...

    Quote Originally Posted by Taodragon View Post

    I'm not; I'm trying to figure why it does, and looking at aspects such as the move's animation as to why.

    I don't know if it'll be Fennekin-specific, but I'm guessing it won't be. I'm not saying it's "special" in any sense other than how the term is used in-game, but that the move may be different from punching moves we've seen.

    Yeah, it'd do something to suggest physical, which Fennekin doesn't.

    It's name plus animation, and the animation shows glow giving way to punch.

    yeah, for reasons of evolutions having easier access, like with Snorunt and Spikes

    No offense, but this is a really stupid argument. But I do have to agree with Taodragon, it could quite easily be an egg move, and lots of egg moves are strange, I could do a quick search and find a ton of them.

    It's looks like that's at a standstill, I'm not looking up all that information at this time.

    And I gave you an example where it doesn't really, there's odd cases regardless.

    Doesn't matter, they still have moves that you'd think they wouldn't have.

    It may, not saying it couldn't be, on the flip side I see how my argument can be dismissed as "nitpicking" in the same breath

    Quote Originally Posted by Excitable Boy View Post

    Doesn't have to, it can or cannot. We've seen examples where it doesn't quite give the impression you're trying to get at. Talonflame doesn't fly up to Haunter when it uses Aerial Ace, no reason to believe the same couldn't hold for Fennekin.

    And as I've said before: That's not enough on its own, again Fire Punch hits the opponent with a fiery fist, doesn't mean it' special.

    Yeah you're right, I think at this point neither me or EB are going to relent so it's probably best to just let this argument die.

    Hoo, boy, welcome to the club.

    Listen, you gotta remember these things; always avoid claims of Fennekin being (or becoming) part Fighting-type, don't tick off mods, and NEVER (and I mean NEVER!) suggest that Arceus is the God of Pokemon when Endolise is online. If you somehow make this mistake, run for the hills before he attempts to murder you via tongue lashing.

    Yeah, it seems that the main theories for the August Corocoro claim that it'll either reveal new Starter-type or the strengths and weaknesses of Fairies. We'll just have to wait and see.

    It will be interesting to see if the punching move will be some kind of random or fitting to Fennekin!

    Showing moves that aren't part of a Pokemon's moveset is something i believe they would avoid. There would be no reason to showcase moves they don't naturally learn, because then they would create fake hype and wouldn't show what kind of Pokemon it truly is. By the way, Chespin used Aerial Ace, not Cut, in the video.

    Aww, just before the trailer was released with the whole Glow Punch thing, I stated that Fennekin may evolve into a bipedal because it knows Scratch instead of Tackle. xP Now everyone is arguing about it because of Glow Punch. What if that noise was a Critical Hit instead? It sounds like something Bug types would use, so it could be a TM. Also to people who were stating that it did a lot of damage- Litleo was Lv 5 and Fennekin was Lv 14. Why does it really matter whether it stands on its hind legs or not? o3o

    Time will tell.

    Anyway, this game needs to be released now. The wait is too long. :c

    It was a definite SE sound

    It matters because every other fully evolved Fire Starter already does.

    I agree with you on the last part. But now we just have to survive August and September!!!

    What if Fennekin's evo's tail morphs into a vaguely hand-like shape, like Yveltal's?

    So we know unless it's really weird, Glow Punch is Fighting-Type. May or may not be Level-Up.

    I'm just excited Fennekin's getting a big movepool!

    Come on Fenny! Learn Shadow Ball!

    Well, Emboar had a pretty big movepool. I wouldn't be surprised if Fennekin is blessed with a lot of options as well.

    I wonder if Fennekin will learn Moon Blast? It seems like a very mystical Pokemon.

    Am I the only person who would laugh if Fennekin's DW Ability is Illusion?

    Seriously, I'm guessing;

    Chespin DW Ability-Sturdy

    Fennekin DW Ability-Magic Guard

    Froakie DW Ability-Infiltrator

    It might be a special fighting move like Zen Headbutt is a physical psiquic type move. And Fennekin is using it in his quadrupedal form, that doen't mean it has to become bipedal just because it used that move.

    I personally think this trailer is just a GF troll move, most of us were pretty convinced that Fennekin would become fire/psiquic that's just a way to make us speculate a bit more.

    We could even be trolled more if GF shows the first evolution of the starters and the 3 of them are still mono type.

    I think the fact Fennekin knows Glow Punch says more that it will be bipedal than it being a fighting type.

    thank you. someone sees sense. we don't know why that is super effective, it could be that it fairy is super effective against normal. even if it is a fighting type move it doesn't mean fennekin has to be.
    The Doctor: 'People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but *actually*
    from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.'
    In other words: Time is Complicated.

    Yes, but glow PUNCH. this means it will probably grow arms at evolution and could mean fire fighting. But I could be fairy. Im getting chespin either way.

    That does not mean anything. Come on, if it can use the move as a fennekin it could still be able to use the same move even if it's evolved forms aren't bipedal. Also this move could be something like aura sphere, the pokemon gathers "energy" and unleashes it as a special attack in the form of a punch.

    I'm sticking with my opinion, that's just a way to troll us a bit, but i'm pretty confident that fennekin won't become a fire fighting pokemon, even thou it will probably learn some fighting type attacks.

    You don't need incredible arms or fists to do a punching move.
