I'm fine with that as long as it's easily accessible from the beginning.
I just thought that with the Mega stuff it would be hilarious to pop up here. Not gonna stick around though.
On a less spammy note, I've noticed that my "namesake" seems to be a huge middle finger at Darkrai. More Speed means it'd be harder for Darkrai to outspeed it if it's not running +Speed as well as Insomnia so it can go "lol Dark Void."
I don't think the old way of EV training is gone, since the official site states that "Pokémon gain experience and grow stronger by battling with other Pokémon." However, the site also says: "The outside (yellow) part of the graph shows the base stat increases that your Pokémon has achieved through Super Training." So EVs earned through wild/trainer battles are probably hidden.
That would seem silly on the part of Game Freak. Only being able to show EVs obtained through Super Training would make things bad given that you wouldn't be able to see the stats you have through traditional EV training so you have no idea what to take out and what to put in. I think you either took it out of context or they took the traditional EV training out. I certainly hope it's the former.
ok we need a dragon/fire megazard fast
I do actually hope they expand the number of Mega Evolutions. There are a bounty of Pokemon that need an upgrade, and it would be intriguing to have both Pokemon to look and have fun with (for example, kricketune) and also be able to battle with said Pokemon effectively. I think picking Ampharos to show off may indicate this, along with Absol and Mawile.
Or, maybe just a handful including a few select legendaries and starters. I'm conflicted. I either want a bunch of MegaEvos or only a couple. No in between.
You don't even begin to understand how much I hate them.
So what's the probability that any of these MEvos will become full-blown evos in Gen 7 (obviously not stuff like MegaBlaziken)?
We can't really say just yet, considering we know literally nothing about the 7th generation besides that there will be starters and legendaries and a new map.
We really don't know much about sixth gen, even, so thinking that far ahead might be counting your eggs before they hatch. It will depend heavily on how many MegaEvos are made in Generation 6, or whether this will be like the gender differences and will be mostly forgotten in the next generation.
I think it would be awesome if every pokemon of the species didn't look exactly the same. Two of the same pokemon right next to each other will always look identical, unless they are shiny or have gender differences. It would be cool if every pokemon had some random variability to make it look unique, so my Emolga won't look exactly like your Emolga.
Perhaps Pokemon Amie will play a role in meeting the requirements to Mega Evolve. You may have to have max friendship, just like how you need to have max friendship to learn the "starter hyper beams" like Frenzy Plant and Hydro Cannon, and also with Draco Meteor as well. Speaking of the starters, I will be seriously bummed if they don't all get mega evolutions. It makes me slightly nervous that the Torchic line has been put into the spotlight, because it's seems like they might be the only starter line to get a mega evolution, and that would seriously be a bummer to a lot of players, including me. I want Swampert to get a mega form very very badly.
MegaMeganium should exist.
I don't know about every starter, but I will be really surprised if Charizard and Blastoise don't get ones,
I'm hoping for Grass/Dragon MegaSceptile and MegaSerperior.
Hm... Interesting. Gamefreak doesn't seem to be implying that the move "may" paralyze the target, implying that there is only a chance to paralyze. The move seems to do damage and have a guaranteed paralyzation chance!
... Cool. If it gets good distribution, Thunder Wave could be left in the dust.
It will probably go to "cute" Pokemon
Somehow I think that Thunder Wave will be around for a long time to come
I doubt it will get good distribution.
Glare is another move that is far better than Thunder Wave. The only pokemon that gets both, Dunsparce, almost always uses Glare because it has 90% accuracy, and can paralyze any pokemon. If more pokemon got glare, I doubt thunder wave would see any use, but glare wasn't given to a lot of pokemon. I doubt that any other moves that will paralyze the target will become widespread.
My guess would be that it is a move with a low BP, probably between 10 and 45, and a high accuracy (90-100%), and a 100% chance of inducing paralysis. From the name of the move, I think the pikaclones will get it, in addition to probably some other dog or cat-like pokemon. However, note that this is just what I think will happen, and I have no hard evidence to back up most of what I put here.
I'm lol'ing so hard at the people who think the Super Training is just a facility atm. Because, as quoted from the official pokemon website (and if you looked at it you'd notice it's on the touch screen with menu options similar to PSS or whatev it's called) "Super Training can be played on the Touch Screen of your Nintendo 3DS system whenever you are not in battle or viewing an event". Meaning you can super train wherever, no facility. You may have to go somewhere or talk to someone to learn how to do it, but the site shows it can be used anywhere.
Just some things I'm wondering about:
* Why haven't the English Pokemon XY site updated us with information about Oorotto, Mega Ampharos, Mega Absol and Mega Mawile?
* Has the entire XY part of CoroCoro been leaked, or is there still more to come?
GameFreak really likes their consistency, so I really doubt they'll do away with traditional EV training altogether. I can see Super Training be like the Pokemon Dojo, as in another way to EV train
What'll most likely happen is that the Gym Leader, after being defeated or helping her with whatever major plot point happens, will show you around the Super Training facility and explain the process to you. One of the people working there will probably load your PokePad (this gen's piece of technology) with a ST "app." Which is probably where the EV viewing interface will come from, too.

Any more information on this? It seems like a good way to passively EV train. Maybe it'll be connected to StreetPass somehow?
The english website hasn't updated with them because the japanese site hasn't updated with them.
I suspect that once CoroCoro releases for real on Monday, all the sites will update with the other 3 megas, but orotto is really up in the air since it was never even in CoroCoro to begin with.
We have the entire XY portion of CoroCoro. If anything remains in the Pokemon section, it's probably just anime stuff.
In the current legitimate metagame, I think it's fair to say that more than 90% of the pokemon used to battle were edited with some kind of save editor to make a "legitimate" hack. Not many people actually EV train their pokemon from start to finish and then use them in serious competitive battling. Now with Super EV training, people won't be intimidated by the way EV training works to make some legitimate competitive pokemon.
Well... You would still have to breed for IVs.
That makes sense, but I thought that Oorotto had been revealed in a official trailer on the japanese 3DS?
Sigh...I guess will we have customizable IVs with items, probably by generation 9. Until then....let the pokegen/action replay cross-compatible pokemon from BW/BW2 continue to flood Wi-fi with their flawless ivs and shiny coloration. (I'm fine with RNG though...atleast it takes effort to learn it, and its not hacking as you are just changing the DS clock, not the internal game structure)
"revealed" is a strong word
it was shown, yes, but not showcased at all. It's why we thought it'd wind up in this month's corocoro but here we are with 6 megas, a gogoat prevo, a rabbit and a pika clone
So, nobody's thought about it yet, but we now have our early bird, pika-clone and (possibly) the new early vermin, Bunnelby.
And to think you were all worried a few months ago that we weren't going to get one/Helioptile was the Pikaclone.
