    So basically, ''please tyranitar and dialga, switch in''. Psystrike, Aura Sphere and Ice Beam is still the best set. Not being able to defeat common rain counters kinda ruins the point of using a rain sweeper. Tornadus-T is always the best choice to spam hurricane anyway.

    Then that is truly the least useful move they could have added to his repertoire.

    It allows Mewtwo to hit Grass Arceus harder than Ice Beam or Fire Blast in rain, but that's basically it. But really, what more could they have given it that it doesn't already have?

    This whole thread's about XY, who knows what threats it might bring that Hurricane Mewtwo would be an excellent response to?

    I think he means Riolu's new split evolution that comes with it's own version of Soul Dew.

    What about Shuckle's evolution with a defensive version of Light Ball?

    How about Yveltal itself, even though I'm sure some silly peasants believe he's --pfft-- Dark-type

    Ghost/Flying. I hope it is because it can function as another spinblocker in ubers, which is always nice.

    Spinda should totally get an evolution.

    I agree, but I don't like that evolution design. I think it should look something like this:

    Also, nothing XY related was confirmed in this week's Smash. Oh well

    I seriously doubt that they even remmember making Spinda in the first place, let alone give it an evo.

    Just look at Farfetche'd...

    They remembered Dunsparce in the new Mystery Dungeon game, so we still have hope.

    Spinda evo would probably end up being based on a giant panda anyway.

    Ghost/flying makes no sense. It's black, it's clearly a dark type.

    I'd question if they'd really want to make a Spinda evolution. Remember, it has that special gimmick of having a near endless pool of spot combinations. Do they really want to recreate that on an evolution? And if they didn't recreate it, then Spinda would lose possibly the one thing that made it memorable.

    Everyone seems to be stressing over ruby/sapphire remakes. These make absolutely no sense to me. Sure, the same cycle has been going on for years now, but that all changed with BW2. The only main series games viable for remake are yellow, ruby, saphire, and emerald. SO, emerald is just an updated version of ruby and saphire. Yellow is still a main series game but has gotten just about zero attention from anyone.


    My conclusion from this would be that the remakes for Gen 6 will be Yellow and Emerald sold alongside each other. From an economic standpoint, this makes worlds more sense as many players would have incentive to get both games. I mean, no one buys both games just to get version exclusives. With Gen 3 cartridges starting to not tell time, and the rarity of Yellow cartridges, this makes alot more sense than just a boring old soulruby and heartsapphire. After we got BW2, Game Freak prettymuch threw the gen cycle out the window and anything could happen now.



    or im just a hallucinating retard and you should disregard all of that. meh.

    It's, uh, not very difficult to make that whole circle thing. The only requirements are a mono-color sprite.

    In any case, yes, we do want a Spinda Evolution. Even stats as mediocre as 90s all around give the lower tiers a usable spinner and the even lower tiers a spinner as well.

    Hell, with some luck, a 90 all spinda evo could make it decently high in OU if superpower is granted to it without stupid dw restrictions.
