    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.

    I'm guessing that it's a special normal type earthquake.

    Reveal the starter evolutions already. You'd think that'd be one of the first things revealed yet theyve said nothing

    So I'm gonna be super ignorant and not read the last 267 pages to see if my question has been answer.

    A while back, just around when Fairy-type was revealed, a friend mentioned someone (English beta testers I thought?) leaking out info like Fairy-type, the typing of the starter evos, etc.

    Would anyone mind giving me a full list of theses rumors so I can be brought up to speed?

    sorry to break it to you guys, but that's not hydro pump. even with a neutral nature and 0 evs, a rain boosted crit hydro pump with stab and life orb will almost ALWAYS KO a neutral nature 0 ev sylveon. If the HP and spec. defense is 110 and 130, it will do about 102-121% damage. If the stats were reversed it's even worse: 107-126% roughly. So yeah, I think it was likely water gun or scald

    It's clearly Water Gun. The anime taught me that Water Gun is a powerful move

    It's not. Hydro pump should do waaaay more damage than the attack did.

    It's possible, although extremely improbable given the math. A 0 IV/0 EV neutral nature Politoed with crit/rain/stab/LO boosted Hydro Pump does 53.4% - 63.1% to a 252 HP/252 SpD Calm Cresselia (which is a tiny bit bulkier (120HP/130SpD) than any potential Sylveon stat spread anyone has guessed for this).

    The only way this could be possible is if that Politoed is built almost as bad as it could be and the Sylveon is built very close to as bulky as it can possibly be. It's quite a stretch, however not impossible.

    I think that it's more likely that someone misheard critical hit, because without the crit sylveon could easily live the hit and retaliate with draining kiss, making up for some of the difference. With leftovers it's a 3hko

    I just gave you the math. I'm not sure why you're still speculating things.

    So Sylveon's looking to have Base 95/X/X/110/130/X Stats now since it can take a Crit Rain Hydro Pump THAT well and still OHKO Salamence with Moon Blast. Either that or Moon Blast is insanely powerful to OHKO Mence from a Base 65 SpA Stat, which seems unlikely.

    I'd also like to point out that Draining Kiss healing for the full amount of damage dealt seems to be confirmed since Sylveon was healed for far more than half the damage it did.

    Because I decided to give politoed full evs and and perfect IVs too with a timid nature(what some people were speculating it being). I don't think it was a critical hit though. That's what separates my math from your math.
