    Haha IKR? Setup Sweepers would hate this weather, entry hazards would be powerful, and scarfers/voltturn teams will be prevalent. Chaotic indeed.

    shockwave527's Acid rain may be a good idea, but as I stated earlier, I won't bet on new weathers too much.

    I agree.
    Nothing else fits Sylveon more than Flying or Normal. There is also the posibility that he will be the first Eevolution that is dual type.
    We all know Trollfreak was against pure flying types for 4 generations.
    I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be Normal/Flying. Just sayin'.

    Can someone help me understand the latest trailer? It confused the hell out of me.
    -Did that deep male voice at the beginning belong to the red Genesect?
    -Is Mewtwo the same one from the first movie? Ash seemed to knew him/her/it.
    -Did Mewtwo seriously speak in a feminine voice?

    1) one would presume so, yes. it's different from the announcer's voice.
    2) it could be. it's a mewtwo; it's hard to tell one apart from the other, should there be more than one.
    3) yes. this is why i don't think it's the same one.

    Cradily Type could benefit.

    Amidst the lashing winds and stinging debris, you spy a lone Crinoid clinging to the earth. Through the roaring wind, you barely make out its terrible curses, spat into the wind with almighty fury. It is invincible. It stands before the storm unafraid. It is as immovable as a mountain. It has the might of stone. The chaos of the storm cannot long compare to this lord amongst flora.

    ------------------------------------------
    As for that list of topics discussed, it's pretty exhaustive. Just adding that the recent discussion has largely been about the new mewtwo form, if new people missed that. It goes by Newtwo, Buutwo, Mewtumor, Mewtwotwo, Mewtwo2, Awakened Mewtwo, Portable Mewtwo, Mewtwo Chode-Mode, and now Mewtwo Two: Genesect Boogaloo.

    The only tumor here is the one that hideous form gave me the first time I saw it. Along with cancer and AIDs.

    Well, you put a blanket statement out there that everything in the commercials has been covered, but there was a mildly serious conversation about why the new female protagonist is a babe.
    Also, Genesect Boogaloo! That's wonderful.
    One more thing. The new trailer shows us that Sylveon's ribbons are opposable. She's the FuckinCreepy type.
    One more one more thing that hasn't been brought up enough. MERCHANDISE

    It looked like a wing to me at first aswell but then I noticed it's the shape of Sylveon's ears, I guess that could still mean it's a flying type though. If it were a normal type I would assume that it would have the same 'bubble' that Eevee has around it. I'm pretty sure it's a new type.

    If sylpheon = new type,

    Will X/Y/Z legendary have it? (Though Xerneas seems likely, pretty gems and stuff)

    And like someone who posted earlier, 8 eeveelutions, each type equal each gym?

    In the trailer, the red Genesect shoots at ash and co. at the 1:00 mark, where another genesect stands with them.

    Where is mew anyway, I want to know how many mewtwos came out from it's body.

    Oh brother....every generation people think there will be a new type added to the game.
    I really, REALLY doubt a new type will be added and if they did it sure as hell won't be Light/Fairy/Whatever crap people may think.

    There could be a number of reasons why that Sylveon's emblem is not the same as Eevee.

    Yeah I've been thinking of this as well. If it had the right stat distribution, it could be a potentially awesome spinblocker in OU.

    Another cool defensive typing would be steel-electric, even though 4X weak to ground. Most electric types out there are offensive pokes, so seeing this typing on an offensive poke would be pretty neat, especially with the lack of offensive steel types. What is there, only like Lucario and Metagross?

    Magnezone and his family is sad. Very, very sad.

    About defensive typing though...steel/poison could be nice.

    Puhleaze. Everyone wants a Poison/Ice type. five weaknesses and four resistances, plus Poison immunity. Except all of its weaknesses are highly common type-based threats! Earthquake, Flamethrower, any Psychic attack, & Heavy Slam would wreck the thing. It's mix of an offensive and supportive typing would make it a great balance-type Pokemon outside of the meta, though.
    Cradily's got a great defensive typing, with only three weaknesses. It'd be nice to have another Grass/Rock.

    EDIT- Dracul's right, I can't count for shit at 6AM.

    I don't believe you can pigeon hole type combinations in such a way. You can make any type combo do what you want with the right stats, regardless of the typing.

    Dusclops with a different typing would still play the same way. Albeit maybe not as well. I do not believe you can see a type and definitely know whether it'll be defensive/supportive/attacking etc.

    Cradily actually has 4 weaknesses (Fighting, Bug, Ice, Steel).

    I wish they would introduce an Ice/Fighting Pokemon... 6 weaknesses (including Bullet Punch and Mach Punch vulnerability) would suck, but the STABs :pimp:

    @shockwave527, we also had a short discussion about possible overworld puzzles. I personally suggested the use of the gyro-scope mechanics. Besides that, I can't really think of anything else.

    @Infernis, you missed Mewbie and M2X D:

    What I want to know is if we get Poke contests in this generation.
    The poke musicals are kind of boring after the first few tries.

    whenever I look at Sylveon I think of easter

    the fact that its symbol looks like a decorated easter egg does not help this

    I don't agree with people who suggest that Newtwo's 'tail on his head' is stupid because in my eyes, it's a really cool design concept. Think of it like this, Mewtwo is effectively a test-tube baby, an experiment honed to perfection and survivability in comparison to it's earlier brothers and sisters.. it's original form for me was this mutated, mess of a Pokémon as it looks in it's Red and Blue sprite where it's disfigured, unproportioned (perhaps unintentionally), it's basically a freak of nature. It's biggest asset, the sole reason they created Mewtwo, is that it was going to be the strongest Pokémon alive with it's unsurpassed Psychic power. Stick with me.

    I always saw Mewtwo's 'tail' as an umbilical cord, that's why it starts around the lower part of it's body, that it's tail will have been connected to some form of life support machine and it'd been provided everything to it from such, much like a baby is inside their mother's womb. It actually makes sense, think about it, that should my reasoning be correct, the umbilical cord would be far more suited nearer it's brain where all of it's power will be drawn from, far more effective. The after-result of this would be that due to the reduced amount of nutrition for the rest of his body, Mewtwo would find himself disfigured, dis-proportioned, closer to the design of Mew which too looks modeled after a fetus.

    Newtwo's 'design', should that be the back story, then works a lot more than Mewtwo's current design where it's been softened out to look far more natural; contradictory in the fact that Mewtwo is unnatural by creation. The only issue then is explaining why Mewtwo changed his appearance, I suppose you could use the argument that he sacrificed some of his Psychic power in this original form to make his appearance so, but as a result was less fragile and offered more of a physical threat. Hence, you'd expect the Newtwo forme (awakening form maybe) to have an absolutely ridiculous Special Attack surpassing Kyurem-W, speed to surpass his current self, but reduced Defence and Attack (although not to the level of Deoxys-A which dies when poked). This would then work well with the movie storyline in that he needs to use all of the Special (both offence and defence) to fight against these modified Genesects and that he cannot suppress it for appearances.

    Sling the Berserk Gene in there and I think you're onto a winner, which is far more than I felt when I first saw this forme. I think more than anything though, my disdain for the forme initially was down to my disappointment in GameFreak for ruining Mewtwo over generations as I always, always thought Mewtwo had the coolest back story and concept of any Pokémon, from when I was 9 discovering him in Cerulean Cave in Red and Blue (and the invincible feeling that followed when it tore the Elite Four to pieces) even to now as a 23yr old. I just disliked how they softened his sprite and design out over the years, forgetting that he was a mutant, a creation of man meant to be disfigured, dis-proportioned and unnatural.

    Unless of course GameFreak conclude that there's more than one Mewtwo, in which case it completely destroys the ENTIRE concept of Mewtwo..

    Why is this Mewtwo obviously female, when the previous Mewtwo was male?

    Mewtwo may have been voiced by Dan Green, but it's still not explicitly male. It could just be a Japanese thing. Arceus was voiced by Tom Wayland in America, but they hired Akihiro Miwa (A female impersonator) for the Japanese version because they wanted the genderless legendary to sound more androgynous.

    I think he's talking about how Awaken form looks like it has a single breast and how Mewtwo definitely have pectorals
