I actually don't mind a quartet infact. Just something different. A quartet would make more sense if they pulled another bw2.
@your boss: I don't think we will ht 800+ pokes this gen.
As for the amount of legendaries this generation I wouldn't mind a lot or just a little quantity. I don't see why so many legendaries is such a problem. My guess is 10 or 8 this generation.
and that would be no excuse to reduce the legend amount, as GF would be criticized for laziness. if they have a backstory, isn't that enough
a multimillion dollar company is going to get criticized for anything they do wrong
the bigger the company is, the harder things are to control, kind of like the faster you go in a car, the smaller movements have big effects
so they are going to know to watch their step many people would flip if they lower it, especially if they lower the amount to 5
This fandom is highely divided, what may seem good for some may be bad for others. I don't think GF cares too much, coz they their fans are going to play no matter what. They just make good games not care about these small issues that not everybody will like.
So, do you think Hiros theory is true? ((If you don't know check the rumors thread at the top))
and of course they care, because if they screwed up so much as only putting in 5 legends, MANY of the fanbase would be upset and most (believe it or not) won't play and as they say in business, "you do not want to lose your regulars"
sure fairy type could happen but i don't think Xerneas would be under that category
I'm expecting eight legendary Pokemon this time around.
Xerneas - Steel/Grass or Fairy
Yveltal - Flying/Dark
Chimera Legendary - Dragon/Rock
Gorgon Legendary - Psychic/Rock
Cerberus Legendary - Fire Rock
Z Pokemon - Water/Poison
Small Event Legendary - Grass/Electric or Grass/Fairy
Other Event Legendary - Ghost
i really want more dark legends and bug legends (maybe more grass)
also it is time for a poison legend, i can see one based off of mercury, and being steel/poison
it could learn a steel move that has a 30% chance of poisoning your opponent
also if it has levitate, it would have one weakness and that being fire
Zekrom and Reshiram were revealed on May 28th, 2010, and had their types partially revealed-Dragon-Types. Them being Dragon/Fire and Dragon/Electric was revealed on June 11th, not even a full month later. Xerny and Yvey have been known about for 3 months and 19 days, over double as long! Why you no reveal types GF????
Going by the Yggdrasil Theory:
Yvetal-Ghost/Flying-Gawd, I'd never guess it's Flying! But anyway, the Blind Yggdrasil Eagle or Falcon (Can't remember!) could see into people's souls, right? And the fact it's a bird. So yeah. Flying. I could see it have an ability were it has a 10% chance of a Physical attack not hitting it, as well as avoiding Stealth Rock. Has Serperior/Tornadus-T like stats, but as it has a higher BST (Probably 680) it could afford higher HP and Attack. Probably be Physical, and I see it knowing primarily Flying-Type Moves, Ghost-Type Moves, Fighting-Type Moves and Slashing-Moves. A Night Slash/*New Ghost Sig Claw Move*/Acrobatics or Brave Bird/Fighting Move of your choice would make a very dangerous movepool. It with Drain Punch 0_o
Xerneas-Fairy/Electric (New Types Included) or Psychic/Electric-It's a majestic deer, and Europe is famous for Fairy-Tales. Psychic is like the closest real type to it, so that if not Fairy. Electric because the branch-horns and gems remind me of Christmas lights. An ability that gives you a 10% chance of dodging any Special Attack, and stops entry hazards. Has a Reshiram-like spread, with lower attack, slightly higher special defense, lower defense, higher HP and higher speed. A movepool of *New Fairy or Psychic Sig Move*/Thunder(bolt)/Ice Beam/*Fire or Fighting Move* would rock. Probably.
I would also like some unique abilities for the legends that aren't just Pressure or Mold Breaker with a new name(I'm looking at you Reshi/Zek)
Gah while grass/psychic sounds cool, i would rather not, as it has seven weaknesses and one of them being a 4X weakness
