    YES TO SHARPEDO EVOLUTION. Hell, I'd be fine if he got a boosting move, something to make him slightly more useful. Seriously, all he and Yanmega really need are boosting moves to be fantastic. Knowing Game Freak, they would give Yanmega Swords Dance and Sharpedo Nasty Plot (although he could actually make some use of that).

    Wailmer → Wailord → WAILCANO.

    FIRE/WATER. ERUPTION/WATER SPOUT DUAL STABS. BASE 200 SPECIAL ATTACK. WEIGHS 3 POUNDS. ABILITY: SPEED BOOST. Calling it now.

    That comment about an ability that changes 4x weaknesses to immunities would turn Water/Ground into an even better defensive type, methinks. Suddenly Quagsire would no longer require a tag-team Miltank.

    Sharpedo has higher ATK and Yanmega has higher SpAtk. Statistically at this point, each would get better utility out of the opposite suggested move :-|

    unless MegaloSharpedo
    Show Hide
    [​IMG]

    suddenly gets a killer increase in SpAtk to balance it out in both manners of offense, Nasty Plot would only be ok on him.

    As for HyperWailord

    Massively increased defenses to turn it into a super wall would be much-loved by many childrens

    Note: trololol highly unofficial pictures from fans and other shows are highly unofficial

    That's the point. Knowing Game Freak, they would give them the wrong move just to troll us.

    I still want my Pachirisu evolution. A fast, bulky electric/flying type who gets Roost and has just enough special attack to do pachirisu's job better, pissing people off with super fang, thunder wave and volt turn.

    Pikachu clones are not allowed to evolve. They fix the "problem" that gamefreak created with the original pikachu. It Evolves into something that is not as cute. Problem solved pika clones have no evolution. sell all the plushies. It prints money etc.

    I can't see how Pachirisu evolving two generations after its debut would affect its cute factor.

    I'm not opposed to their evolution. I just think that their entire creation by gamefreak was to sell plushies.... and I don't think they care much about evolving them.
    If they do though all the better though.

    A reliable psychic ATK with 100/100+ base power to counter the bulky fighters better?

    More Defensive Pokes - maybe with Unaware - to weather last Gen's offensive derping, maybe with a nice ability to boot, like cancelling effects of held items while in play.

    Few more OU/UU level GoodMons than the 5-6 we usually get per Gen, basically high BST's and good effectiveness.

    ^Please GameFreak?? Oh wait it's probably too late already. Maybe for Pkmn Z? =D

    At least the game *looks as good as it can do, and they've totally fixed the 'behind view' of the Sprites now. Animated battles (superior and more detailed to the Colossuem crap) are the way 2 goo!

    The only reason I want pachi to evolve is because compared to most of the other electric rodents, it actually looks cool, and it actually has 'interesting' stats. (For an electric type anyway)

    sorta-Bulky and fast with laughable offenses. If it evolved, it'd become a fast, respectably tanky Pokemon with workable or just sub-optimal offenses most likely. There aren't many Pokemon who are both bulky and fast but lack offense. At least not compared to your regular slow walls and speedy sweepers.

    Sadly Emolga took the spot as the flying squirrel pokemon, ruining Pachirisu's chances of turning into a flying squirrel. My original design for Pachirisu's evo was a flying squirrel based on the japanese youkai Nobusuma, a spirit that would take the form of a flying squirrel or a ghostly wall. I imagined Pachi's evo would spread it's arms out to form it's body into a 'wall' using the flaps of skin as a barrier. It would have totally made sense too if it weren't for those meddling kids.

    Also before it slips my mind again, I love the cel shading on the Pokemon battle models. Not only is it smooth and effective at hiding the polygons, it also replicates Ken Sugimori's style with it's soft pallete and fine but simpistic shading approach. This is the closest in-game Pokemon have ever been to the official artworks.

    I don't get the love for the 2 'leading' Legendary's - they'll most definitely have Uber BST's, and so be unusable in OU and below.

    Which basically makes them less useful than Watchog's dental-plan, lol.

    Just to point out difference between graphics of Pokemon XY and Pokedex 3D.
    Which one do you prefer? I don't really know which one is "better" to be honest :/

    I think the Cel-shading. Wind-waker showed how well it can express both mood and detailed animates. I always thought the Colloseum like models looked a bit 'dumbed down' basic and plastic.

    In other 'I want GameFreak to do this *NoW*' - Cofigeragus to be modified to Ghost/Steel typing (pretty plz, with a Jigglypuff or 2 on top ^^)

    Hey guys I just thought of something. Xerneas is deer-shaped and has fours swords as legs. It could have its own story to tie in with Yveltal, but what if it was also the "master"/ruler of the legendary musketeers? seems trivial, and I could be dead wrong, but interesting to think about never the less.

    I have said time and time again. Xerneas is their mother and Yveltal made the eggs with her/impregnated her. It's so obvious. Durr.

    EDIT: Fail Lilligant.

    *OmG* Just thought of how the Legendary Genies would appear like in this version *faints and gets blown away by a Tornadus*

    All can say is, More. Like. These. Please. Game. Freak.

    Oh wait, I was supposed to have been fainted, oops.

    So I heard that the starters dual types are going to be Fire/Psychic, Water/Fighting and Grass/Dark, which would be very interesting. I wouldn't bet on it though, since I'm basing this speculation on this image, the source of which I don't know, so it could very easily be wild speculation itself:
    [​IMG]
    The grass/dark thing is especially tenuous considering it's not even alluded to above, though it would make sense if the other two were psychic and fighting, since it would function as a reversal of the old grass>water>fire>grass type superiority.

    Isn't Pin Missile a Bug-type move, which would make Chespin a Grass/Bug?

    I dig the cel-shading better than the "realistic" look from Pokedex 3D for this game, it indeed does make it look more like the cartoon. But I also lve the Pokedex 3D Pro models so much better than the bullshit models from PBR, I mean Arcainine's mane looks like paper flowing in the wind, they finally fix that issue in Pokedex 3D Pro.

    this isn't form Nintendo Power is it? I thought they were finished...where is this from?
