    The battlers in the video looked competent so I am going to assume that the turn spent with Topsy Turvy to raise Noivern's sAtt was because Boomburst is a special attack.
    Draco Meteor is 210 bp after STAB. I can't totally see the HP bar, but it did half to Gallade correct? So a spread special normal move at +2 would have to be at least 140 BP to finish the KO or deal physical based damage since Gallade has much weaker physical defense.
    This is going under the premise of it being a special attack since he just spent a turn raising his sAtt for a reason. Whichever way you look at it though, it definitely won't be a hyper voice clone with a new name.

    Well, considering the person who won was Morimoto himself...

    I'm hoping for a mystic E4, Psychic, Dark, Ghost and Fairy.

    Also to answer the question about in-game team, mine will be Chespin, Torchic, Gogoat, a water type, a flyer, and a wildcard. It will be great to have two starters.

    I'm not committing to any team because new Pokemon-wise we probably only know around a third, give or take.
    And old Pokemon-wise we don't know much

    I will try my hardest to incorporate Swirlix, though

    I will choose my team based on final evolutions, of course. But I'm hoping Fennekin can make up for my dream of a Fire/Psychic Ninetales (Which is obviously never going to happen). And as for Sylveon, yeah, seems very bulky. Wonder if it'll get some gimmick ability that will make up for its Speed.

    Marowak has a 110 defense, and being TR I would assume it would have HP investment (although these guys probably aren't competitive). Maybe it's just me but I would think Boomburst would have to either A) have hit his SDef B) have a ridiculously high physical base power or C) Marowak had terrible IVs and EVs.

    and ALSO did you guys notice how Boomburst ever after the Sp.Atk drop from draco it was still enough to take out BOTH OF THEM?

    Topsy Turvey reverses SPA drop so its not -2 spa, but +2 spa. And we don't know if boom burst is special or physical.

    I would say Boom burst is special since the player use Topsy Turvey to reverse a -2 SpA to +2 SpA. He would unlikely use a physical attack at +2 SpA.

    EDIT: Also the video makes me think that Talonflame is a final form. And what is with all the attention given to Sableye?

    So I feel I missed something

    Why do people think Boomburst is physical, again?

    Hmmm its seems that politoed has 31 IV in HP and 252 EVs in HP, giving 197 HP at level 50...seems like someone plays competitively
    Its not impossible to be physical, but I guess after topsy turvy it makes sense to be special. I thought we wouldn't have a Hyper Voice clone, which is special, that's why I thought physical...but I guess gamefreak is really lazy.

    Well it hits everyone, teammates included, so it's already not a clone of hyper voice

    I'm hoping the mere presence of Drizzle Politoed there is some indication that transferring is possible. MORIMOTO WOULDN'T HACK PERFECT, UNOBTAINABLE IN XY POKEMON JUST FOR THIS DEMO RIGHT? RIGHT???

    My thoughts exactly....or (a dream come true) there is a way to change ivs in pokemon x and y and it's not permanent.

    Just because it had the ability doesn't mean it's otherwise unobtainable without transferring

    *cough*hiddenhollows*cough*weezing*

    We don't even know if this will return or not though :/ and I'm still on the fence about items returning from previous generations via whatever transfer method they use.
    Remember when B/W 1 came out and everyone was upset because Berries and Soul Dew were absent until DreamWorld and Black2/White2 in-game events happened.
    They just might do the same treatment with X/Y and that means NO Eviolite mons fore example.

    That was what I was implying, yes
    You're right, they might not. But they could. Or they have a new way to get hidden ability Pokemon. Or hidden abilties can just happen in the wild rarely.

    Pretty sure Eviolite will be available in-game. GF seems to want you to give it to your starter while it's in its second stage.

    Not that one. Its Dream World ability (If they're retaining that idea).



    Froakie caught my attention the most. It can blow its foams like flotation devices and can also use them as shurikens. GameFreak's favorite Generation VI starter, I guess. And does the move that Chespin used look like Leech Seed?

    They seem to have perfect IVs. The four of them had perfect HP IVs. Gallade, Politoed and Ferrothorn all have their HP maxed out, Marowak was the only one who didn't, but still have 135 hp, which is the minimum with 31 IVs.
