    Umm...Aurinko wasn't talking about Charizard's usability but about the possibility of another Drizzle user to balance out the new Drought Charizard

    But I kind of want to see another Snow Warning user ^^

    Presumably it can, although whether or not you'd have to trigger another mega evolution upon switching back in is unknown (as is if you would be able to switch it, but really, there's no logical reason why you wouldn't be able).

    >implying trollfreak uses logic.

    The thing I wonder about more is whether the Megas have a turn limit or something. Like say after x turns they revert back or after x condition. I didn't see the movie, but I saw the prologue which showed Megatwo reverting back before the "battle" ends. I know it's the anime, but it's still a possibility this happens in the games too.

    Hope to see a change in how they handled forms when poketransported. The same way they handled Rotom for BW, be good for Shaymin, Giratina to keep there forms without having to hold an item.

    Also Kyruem, will the combined form be available?

    Well if the transfer transfer items as well (certainly hope so). The forms most likely will retain. If not, I don't guess anything will change and we'll just have to wait for the items like we did in BW. Kyurem-B/W will probably stay same upon transfer too. Unless for some reason they restrict that (which would suck) until we get the key item again or maybe a stationary place to fuse/defuse them. Like how Deoxys meteorites work.

    I hope all starters get mega evos.Then everything would be balanced.Its better than giving mega evos to some starters and giving them more importance.

    I hope they keep adding megalutions as a post launch thing, sort of like Dream World abilities in Gen 5.

    Yeah, I think that - especially with Drought Charizard (gimmicky, but nonetheless - an evolution on the switch in of another inducer is huge) around the corner - it would be time to even out the 4 weathers, at least in terms of the number of inducers.

    I noticed a lot of the pokemon they showed in the Poke Bank had ties to X and Y. Some are from 6th gen, some have mega forms, and others had their typing reworked with Fairy. I'm really reaching here but maybe it's foreshadowing on additional mega forms or type changes. Scizor, Gyrados, Haunter, and Houndour are in there.

    the only ones not seen in media from January to know I believe are Weavile, Machamp, Gliscor(maybe from a picture/trailer), Staraptor(maybe from a picture/trailer), Druddigon, Scizor, and Lapras
    everything else was either in a demo, in an official picture, or in an official trailer of some kind...or maybe they were from Pokemon Smash...hard to tell but I CAN point out where everyone else has been.

    I hope not. Hordes can be comprised of different species though so it might not mean anything

    Oh yeah! A lot of those were in hoarde battles, sky battles, pokemon amie, and just general battle shots. That's interesting. Where did Mienfoo appear though?

    Does Scizor count for being mentioned but not shown?

    Is Miltank part of Tauros' family? No... People need to stop reading so much into pictures like this.

    Still, I'm kinda so-so on the Kanto Starters, I hope you don't get them too early. Chances are I won't even use them on my first few games because I want to use new stuff... I can understand what they are doing, but I've trained those mons atleast 4 or 5 times each, I don't want too again.

    Scizor has only been mentioned by Hiro (right?), so I think that means it's still unconfirmed.

    Scizor is unconfirmed. As for Orot appearing with Sudowoodo, I don't think it's significant. Their designs are in completely different directions, it just doesn't make sense to me.

    The only reason Sudowoodo is there is because it's trying to blend in with the other tree pokemon.

    Why hasn't Orotto been officially confirmed yet?

    I actually wonder why the trademarks in one same generation aren't registered at the same time.
    I don't mean I suspect you, I mean I just simply don't understand.

    Is it due to some names are more difficult to register?
