    We do not have any information about DLC aside from the fact that the development team refused to comment on its inclusion at the roundtable a couple months ago.

    Let's move the discussion toward something slightly more based in fact.

    Yeah, I'm really interested in what the Elite Four will use. Quite frankly, I would be really surprised if there is no gym-leader or E4 member that uses fairies, since in GS there was a gym leader who used steel-types (Jasmine) and an E4 that used Dark-types. (Karen)

    You can bet someone somewhere is going to be a specialist in Fairy-types. I'd much rather see an E4 member using Fairy-types this generation, since E4 members are normally equipped with more varied Pokémon of different secondary types (and stronger battle strategies) than gym leaders tend to be, and I'd like to see our new type at its meanest.

    Haha you're not the only one. I can do attacks also, but probably up to RSE.

    this video has much more footage, it also shows what happens when a pokemon is confused and hits itself

    Edit: if someone can read and understand japanese, at 06:39 in the video we have sylveon vs gabite...and it looked like gabite DID INDEED DO A DRAGON MOVE AND NOTHING HAPPENED and then sylveon went for fairy wind and put gabite in "the red"...WE NEED A TRANSLATION A.S.A.P!!

    From what I can see, it used Take Down (とっしん) and it missed.

    Fennekin of course. I'll box the Torchic for later usage. Gogoat definitely. Talonflame. Thats all for now though

    My in-game team will likely end up with a lot of stuff we haven't seen yet on it. No idea on the starter yet. Probably going to go with impulse on that one...or whichever has the coolest looking final evolution (assuming we get to see them pre-release somewhere).

    The only two that are for certain on my in-game team are Torchic and Honedge. I feel lucky that most of the new Fire-Types designs don't appeal to me, or at least not as much as Blaziken. =P

    Did anyone see this:


    This game looks absolutely stunning. There are a lot to things to note about noivern, malamar, and sylveon's stats in this video. Can anyone do some damage calculations.

    Holy shit. Did Politoed just use a crit-, Life Orb-, rain-, and STAB-boosted Hydro Pump and take barely over half of Sylveon's HP? Is that thing bulky as all hell?

    From what we've seen of Sylveon's HP/defenses/attacks I feel like it will have base stats of 95/60/65/110/130/65. It's a combo that hasn't been used yet that makes a lot of sense.

    HP and Special Attack could probably be switched as well as Attack and Defense.

    Sylveon could also be holding a new defensive item.

    Also, Draining Kiss did barely anything to Politoed but recovered almost all of the HP Sylveon lost... huh

    I completely agree with your sylveon spread. I personally think HP will be 110 and special attack will be 95 because umbreon had 95 hp and 110 HP wasn't done before. Jolteon and Vaporeon had 110 SPA before. Based on the shiny sylveon, it would have 31 ivs in HP if it has 95 HP so I doubt it.

    EDIT: 110/60/65/95/130/65

    Remember all of the Eeveelutions have the same BST. So some stat is gonna lose 25 stats and it isn't gonna be attack. So 95 Sp.A would be the case over there.

    Made my decision- My Fire-type in Y will be this guy;

    Even if Litleo doesn't get a Fire/Poison evolution, I'd still like to try it out. And if it does, well, then that's just an added bonus. :)

    Not gonna lie: Littleo, Talonflame, Torchic, and Fennekin are tempting me to do a mono-fire run in my first playthrough, something I never do. (I usually do a straight run and then transfer my mons out before doing a new run) Makes me wish we had multiple save files so you can do that without deleting your team

    Wasn't it stated in our trustworthy leak that Draining Kiss heals the same amount of HP that the user deals to the opponent?

    This sort of thing is part of why I get both versions- one is my main game on which I keep all my Shinies, my EV trained stuff, my in-game teams of the past, and so forth, and the other one is the one I restart to play again and again.

    That it was, yes, that it was. I believe it's a 60 base power move, too.
