    This isn't too shabby at all, gives something back to spectators I guess, last year there didn't seem to be much for people who go and get knocked out early/didn't play. I do like shiny TTar as well,

    But i hope it's not god a godawful, unhelpful nature, that could ruin it entirely.

    So now Chople Berry is extremely easy to get, along with Superpower on Ttar.

    Best news ever.

    If it's ability is non-dreamworld then there's nothing special about this Larvitar, considering you can teach Larvitar Superpower in HeartGold.

    Now if it's ability IS dreamworld then we have something special on our hands, as Unnerve Tyranitar cannot learn Superpower by any other means.

    And yeah, Chople Berry is easy to get now. But isn't it available in the Dream World?

    Considering they say this:
    It looks to be just like any normal larvitar from HGSS, but in a Cherish Ball. Still worth RNGing if you don't have a Gen 4 game.

    Is Superpower better then Low Kick? I would think Low Kick, everything it is likely to get used on will be taking good damage from it

    Low Kick is probably better in VGC, especially whenever Ubers make their return to the scene, but since Superpower is 120 power regardless of weight, there are probably a few things that it's better against.

    Both have the same power max, though low kick needs requirements and superpower lowers two of your most important stats. And If you want white herb for replenishment you're losing chople. And don't both require ss/hg? (I'm probably wrong here, bet it's an egg move) Anyway this sounds great, though why not the US?

    Also its trait is probably going to be random and can be changed if you turn your game off and try again (assuming it's one of those). Personally I like the event idea, but if you live in the US it's probably better to just rng one u in ss/hg instead of getting a plane ticket to go there.

    too bad its not low kick. Low kick is better for reliability. SP forces you to switch to retain stats while lowkick can be used. Works better when ttar is one of your last mons.

    This is cool, and I guess its only for Europe and Korea because U.S nats are months away. We can expect a US one a month away from nats.

    Past VGC event mons have always been male-only as far as I can tell, so I would assume this is the same.
