    Most of the time I wind up using only 2 or 3 unless I'm feeling sporting and what exp on my other guys.
    So I kind of doubt that would really make things harder since, well, you're likely to have that many pokemon that can handle them.

    Just about the only way I can genuinely see making the leaders harder in a way that's "fair" is to go with Battle facility rules. 3 Pokemon, Set switching, no items, fixed levels, etc.
    But that's riddled with a myriad other issues.

    ...Oh yeah. Those guys.

    But still. None of them were local or wi-fi events; I'd say we're safe with Mewtwo.


    Regarding pokémon I want to see, I want a legendary trio (yeah screw you) based on Amaterasu, Tsukiyomi and Susanoo. I haven't given much thought to the latter two's designs (I know typing, abilities and stats but that's it), but Amaterasu could be a Fire/Fighting, special-based harpy with some sun motif going on.

    I think they need to give max IVs or EVs to the Gym Leaders, like they did to the Champions in the PWT in BW2, which I found an amazing feature. That would definitely make it challenging.

    I think that would be a very interesting/cool choice for a pokemon. They're running out of animals to copy!

    The site (Pokemon.com) already updated, as it did with new info after Sylveon had been announced, confirming it, and no new XY info was added. So, screwed over, definately.

    Also Heal Pulse, but we at Smogon don't seem to pay much attention to VGC.

    One would have thought it'd be a gen 4 Pokemon considering it introduced, you know, gender differences.

    It's honestly kind of baffling!

    Ho-oh looks to me like a peacock: look at the the tail, the hair/crest, the fat belly with the long, thin neck, both have lots of colors etc.

    I think HO-OH's supposed to be a straight up Phoenix. Or a giant turkey.

    It's a combination of a turkey and a phoenix. Its Regenerator is based on a phoenix' ability to recreate itself from its own ashes.

    Ho-oh a turkey? I don't see it. The crest, the colours, the ability to fly...
    The tail is vaguely similar, but aside from that and, like, being a bird, where's the turkey?

    Castform would probably evolve in a similar way to Burmy, where it evolution depends on what form it was in upon evolution.

    Sadly, at least competitively speaking, Mewtwo cannot make use of Hurricane. It has redundant coverage with Mewtwo's STAB move, and do not even complement Psystrike.

    On rain teams it would be swell.

    Psystrike
    Thunder
    Hurricane
    Calm Mind

    That would put some serious hurt on dudes. Also it would have Unnerve so that Thunder would put big time hurt on any Wacan Berry Manaphies out there.

    That would suck. I want versatile castform evo. Speaking of castform-how about forecast starting weather depending on the rock it holds? Like
    damp rock=drizzle
    Heat rock=drought and so on
