    Mhmmm looking at game-freak having revamped some old moves.
    Drain Punch + Gaga Drain bp up.
    Same for some other moves like Petal Dance.
    I really hope they do the same for Shadow Punch.

    Ps: the sword mon can have some new sword like attacking moves. (i gues they can work for Bisharp too since it is the sword blade pokemon.)

    skip to 1:22 in the video, he does some sort of "Samurai Strike" attack or whatever you would call it in an anime...

    Nah, if it gets a signature move it's likely gonna be a Night Slash clone (though if it gets lucky then it will be with Leaf Blade's BP)

    I think with the addition of the Fairy-type, it would be a good opportunity for GameFreak to introduce a new physical Steel attack.

    If that were to happen I would almost guarantee you that it would be the Hoenn starters, seeing as how the fandom seems to be really obsessed with an R/S remake. I personally would want them to be the Sinnoh starters but R/S/E are pretty hard to find these days and plus those starters are the only starters not found on any of the DS games pre-migration.

    Golurk is a golem that happens to look like armor. An actual haunted suit of armor based on French medieval armor would still work.

    You can get the Hoenn starters in HG/SS.

    Edit: Also, sorry. For some reason I thought the posts would combine automatically. I must be thinking of a different forum software.

    You're right, and as a matter of fact you can actually get Torchic+Treecko/Mudkip in HG/SS because you can find Torchic via Pokewalker. Maybe we can eventually have the option to get a starter from all of the gens in X and Y without transferring, since that would most CERTAINLY get a ton of people hyped up. Who knows?

    I was implying the Poison part would kill fairies, not the dragon.




    I wouldn't mind another Poison/Fighting either lulz. Toxicroak is my favorite gen4 monster.

    Hoping for a good physical Ghost STAB for sure and also Honedge doesnt seem to be compatible with the existing physical Steel moves, I mean: Iron Head? Steel Wing? Metal Claw? Bullet Punch? Meteor Mash? Iron Tail? Gear Grind?

    All of them seem pretty weird to be used by a Sword. They can (and probably will) fit in Iron Head somehow but apart from that nothing really works on a sword, so we can assume a new physical steel move will be introduced.

    I think the Pokemon in the 6th gen are shaping up to be the nicest looking Pokemon yet. I haven't had any complaint with what Gamefreak has been doing over the years. I think Honedge looks amazing, yet another awesome Ghost variant I'll have to try out.

    I would love to see something like this happen. It could very well happen seeing as Honedge may have lower defenses than other steel types, therefore, he could use it as a recovery technique instead of pain split.

    Hey, if Honedge evolves, why not name the evo TWOche? Or would that be too obvious/suck too much?

    So does anyone think that altaria looks like a fairy/dragon? Also Honedge seems pretty cool but it is its typing which is really getting me excited to try it out.

    Isn't Altaria's gimmick supposed to be that her wings are like clouds? It wouldn't make sense for Altaria to be part fairy since clouds are obviously associated with flying types.

    I don't think Altaria can be a fairy. It's already a flying/dragon. The fairy type was added to pokemon with only one type, like Marill. In that case, you don't think they would touch a Blissey with fairy, do you?

    They'd change flying.

    I do believe they will touch blissey.

    As I've said before, it is highly unlikely that the development team will retcon present typings of already existing Pokemon, since it's been established in almost every Pokemon medium that all Pokemon are of specific typings. Altaria exists as Gym Leader Winona's signature Pokemon, and has been established multiple times as a Flying-type in the games (especially the PWT in BW2) and anime (Fortree city battle). The same pretty much applied to the addition of Steel-types in Generation II, where there were no pure Steel-types introduced from Kanto, and Magnemite's family was given an additional Steel-typing.

    No. Technician Pokemon enjoy those moves right where they're at. Let Energy Ball/Dozens of Fighting moves keep the medium-powered slot.

    After seeing Flabebe, they could make Bellossom a fairy/grass since it's only grass and it could be considered a wood nymph.

    This is true. It is itty bitty too, and since Flabebe is pure Fairy, the typing wouldn't be redundant.
