    Don't worry, the metagame will either bend around Chandelure (and bend A LOT) or it will be banned. Not sure which, but it'll pass. People will stop using Choiced fighting moves overeagerly, I guess.

    It occurs to me that Uxie/Mesprit/Azelf and Regirock/Registeel/Regice might depend on what starter you picked, like with the beasts in FR/LG - it's just that it doesn't seem likely to me that GF would make a room for each of the legendaries, but will wait for confirmation.

    Should note that I'm not surprised by these guys in the games, after all, the birds were in both Pt and HGSS and the beasts were in HGSS and a Gen IV event, whereas the Regis were only in Pt (and required an event Regigigas to access) and the Lake Guardians were only in DPPt.

    Cresselia and Heatran however, did surprise me - do want confirmation on where/how and if they are in both games. Eon Pokes are nice, already picking White 2, not that it makes up for the Enigma Stone event I missed in SS...

    Happy about the move tutors, but somewhat disappointed that some of the Gen III move tutors weren't brought back. Looking forward to reading the who-gets-what list whenever it comes out.

    I'm ALMOST sure Kaphotics posted the GBU functions coded in-game and there's something about Nintendo/GF being able to identify who disconnected (in BW!).

    Woah, the field for the World Championship final battle is pretty awesome with the spotlights going all over. The whole thing reminds me of Wrestlemania haha.

    Kind of weird how the Muskateer Trio are just standing out in the open to be caught.

    Edit: Oh god, Charles is back. I recall seeing a lot of people hoping this would happen lol

    170? Well they just got a first way ticket into Ubers, if Fusion Flare/Bolt didn't do that already.

    no, you're talking about this:

    search for "cheat" and "disconnect" if you don't want to read through the whole thing.

    Oh no, I forgot Heatran! That's 15 legendaries!

    Also, 170 atk/sp.atk in Kyurems formes? Wow, I didn't think it would be so high... so will that sheer power get Kyurem's formes banned, or is it's type giving it stealth rock and bullet punch weaknesses going to hold it back?

    Oh yeah, that's what I was talking about. Somebody (I guess now it was you!) made a post quickly explaining it, but even if it wasn't you, it's clear that they did have *something* ready to detect disconnecters already.


    And lol, 170 Base offense. But seriously, what about Snow Warning Weakrem, Game Freak???

    I'm sure it's hiding in the Dream Radar

    Welp, damn. I thought it would be something like 150 lol; I guess it was actually 170!

    Holy shit.

    They really want to get it just quickbanned, don't they?

    (170 base Blizzard will be fun as hell; same can be said of Draco Meteor.)

    I swear I cannot even understand WHY we have had no word of rematches until now. Are they seriously going to appear only in that World Tournament? Meh

    Oh, don't forget 170 SpA Fusion Flare and Focus Blast (since we're talking about White Kyurem).

    Black Kyurem has Outrage and Fusion Bolt with 170 Atk.

    Hmm...you guys think Black Kyurem will make it without much of a Physical movepool?

    Even if it's got a limited physical movepool, what could come in on a 170 Outrage and not be One-shotted/seriously maimed to where it's not doing any tanking anymore?

    170 offences sound scary. Banded Outrage / Specs Dragos will be something to look out for. o.0

    Kind of a strange question, but would breeding pools be updated in Black 2/White 2? I'd like to know in the future if Blastoise gets access to Shell Smash.

    So far, there isn't any news on new breeding pools yet. Most likely we'll know once people look into uknowhat and discover new breeding moves. Although I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Dang 170?! People were close. I saw a good majority say 165. Heck even their other attacking stat is good enough for mixed sets. Now we need keldeo and the kami's bst.

    So it's likely a 3HKO on Skarmory unless it rolls close to minimum damage each time, . I guess there's one thing that can tank it and... uh... whirlwind it away? Hit for a SE Steel Wing? I guess it could set up Spikes or Rocks or something. Not wasted, and Skarmory could just roost off the damage. Okay, so there's one thing that isn't afraid of it... unless it predicts the switch to Skarmory and starts charging Freeze Bolt, maybe.

    Ice punch does that much. Luckily it doesn't get Icicle crash. >.>
