    The relationship between Heatmor and Durant is more like predator/prey than rival/rival. What's especially interesting is that the Pokedex entries for both make no mention of rivalry, but that the Black version entry for Heatmor specifically mentions prey and the Black 2/White 2 entry for Durant calls Heatmor its "natural predator."

    My curiosity led me to image search "nightmarish ant"

    That was like, all of the top 10 results

    It makes me happy that the trapdoor and other freakish arachnids were removed but not my adorable colourful jumping spider

    Honestly, I've always had a similar theory regarding Sabrina/Koga's badges.

    The Marsh badge gives the idea of a swampy area where poisonous creatures would live, while having little to nothing to do with psychics at all. I mean, it's yellow, like Alakazam and Hypno, but that's really about the only connection it has.

    The Soul badge, on the other hand, at least speaks to some depth of the psychological/philosophical/emotional/spiritual nature of the psychic type, and while an argument can be made that a few of Koga's ninjas mentioned things about light and shadow, which can refer to one's soul and the fact that half the heart is darker than the other, there still isn't really much "soul"-ish about any of the gen-1 poison types to really back this up.

    Each of the other badges made sense without TOO much stretching, except maybe the earth badge that looked like a leaf/broccoli.

    Be careful what you say.

    I thought the video conveyed that they were equally matched. Both evaded the others attacks, leaving the battle as a draw

    I think he was referring more to personal preference, but it's a bit misplaced. :3

    I sure wish they'd give us a little more to go on for this game, I figured we'd have a lot more info by now.

    Also all you bugophobes need to see a shrink, if you can't even handle pictures you have a serious problem.

    I personally hope we actually don't find out too much more, so that we'll actually be able to play a brand new game.

    And don't try and downplay people having phobias, they can be quite serious.

    I'm actually trying to see if I can play it with minimal spoilers, given that we won't have the whole game out in japan months before we hold it in-hand. I ran into Sylveon on accident, but my girlfriend is on the lookout for new mons to warn me ahead of time.
    A fool's quest I know. But the lack of info really hasn't bothered me any. it's still a bit less than half a year away. I'm sure they'll be painfully slow until about august.

    So.
    After talking with some of the mods, we've decided to go ahead and lock this until we get new information on, like, anything.
    As it is now:
    -Conversations go in circles ad nasueum
    -[Which leads to the same] ridiculous/petty/obnoxious arguments
    -Kinda spammy/off topic stuff (though this isn't as common)

    And it's not just me and the other mods noticing it, several people have brought up here as well.

    So for now let's all take a little break from the XY thread for a few weeks. At worst you'll have to wait until CoroCoro starts leaking.

    Despite Smash's preview I'm not unlocking the thread until next Saturday since we still have nothing to go on from what they showed.

    Patience

    As tempted as I am to leave this closed out of spite, Serebii is -convinced- that this

    is real

    so whatever, thread re-opened discuss the awful design to your hearts content.

    Jeez... They're making Mewtwo BETTER??

    Kinda excited, don't know yet how I feel about the design overall and not making judgments till I see its whole body. I hope they reveal more than just this on Saturday, though.

    EDIT: ...maybe it'll be Light ty - *BANG* kills self

    The new mewtwo form looks lagging in design.
    I wonder what stat distribution it will have.

    It's apparently a thing they do every year for that year's movie. Serebii says it matches up with the past 7 years of formatting.

    Honestly it makes me cringe for some reason.
    It's such a horrible design.

    It would be 100% better if they did not put his tail on his head
    Why would they do that
    Who thought that looked good from any aspect

    Oh god let this be fake. I've enjoyed all five generations' pokemon (some more some less) but messing with the classics just feels wrong man. And if anything, Mewtwo doesn't need to look more Dragonball-ish. Although it being a brand new Mew clone wouldn't hurt.

    But seriously guys, do you think this is just going to be Resolute forme all over again or something similar to Black/White Kyurem where he fuses with Mew or something?

    It looks like a overdeveloped Banette (no, I do not watch Dragon Ball)
