    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

    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
