    MMawile looks like doubles material to me. There you can enter it, get intimidate, and mevo turn 1 with fewer problems thanks to fake out partners and the prevalence of protect. Also, the epic sucker punch is more appreciated.

    Edit: Weak to heatwave and earthquake. Resistant to rockslide and blizzard. Hm.

    There's been a lot of misinformation and confusion going on over the last few pages.

    Err.. are you sure you are talking about Jynx? I think you should review type match-ups again.

    Especially since it uses Huge Power with the opponents attack. So Foul Play on a max attack Kyu-B would be 95 power from an attack stat of 964. Ouch.

    Just a thought - Intimidate cuts into Foul Play damage...

    The ice-type Attack that hits water for super effectiive damage, might finally make ice-types better.
    By now all water types learned ice beam so people didn't use ice-types because of sr damage.

    Hozu Yea, preferably only once but it makes playing around with it initially a little harder.
    Namine I guess it depends on whether its a signature move or not (I hope not :D)

    If fairies are weak to fire
    I would go for breeding the sap sipper azumaril. Whilst it lacks attacking power you could always baton pass a few stat boosts.

    Just watched a nbz vid, its rumoured there might be a mega Celebi/Dragonite/Salamence.

    Just asking again, 'cause it seems it was ignored the last time:

    Do Amaura and Aurorus mark the first use of gradient colours in official art? Their headgear have a gradient from pink to yellow, and I can't remember if such a thing was used earlier (it would probably be too complicated to sprite).

    Fairy arent weak to Fire. Steel are, though thats not a big deal imo.
    Huge power requires no time investment its better overall

    Also I could say theres rumors of a mega Jirachi thats just baseless speculation. Were at a point now where we should be expecting photos from players guides or press kits

    If we're not counting the spiffy high-tech flame effects used on Moltres' Gen. III art, I believe you're correct.

    I wouldn't count Moltres, actually. Assuming you mean the art in its Bulbapedia article, you can see the flames are composed of patches of only three (or four, hard to tell) different colours. There are clear borders between colours in Moltres' art, wheras Amaura and Aurorus have true gradients.

    I wouldn't either, just was the closest thing I could think of. Speaking of Moltres, if the original legendary trio get Mega formes, I demand Drought Moltres. The damn thing brings summer, it should have gotten that way before Charizard. :I Same for Drizzle Zapdos and Snow Warning Articuno.

    Not true ... Keldeo or Rotom Water or Magikarp or Tympole-line can't learn Ice Beam

    Sorry to bring up something from a different page, but there was some confusion about this. Jynx has the Dry Skin ability, making it immune to water moves.

    So far new good type-combos include Dark + Fairy as well as Fairy + Ground, while Dark + Fighting pretty much got shafted due to Fairy.

    The balance of the Dragon-type pretty much made it reminiscent to Electric now: strikes a limited number of types SE (there's a shit ton of Waters and Flyings though) and has a type that has a total advantage against it.

    Talking about MEvos, if MGarchomp loses speed, it'll probably not be overused, as it also has to give up an item slot.

    Anyone know how they are going to handle DW distribution in gen 6, or has that not been discussed yet?

    Not been discussed yet. I would be very surprised if the Dream World itself came back in any form, I get the impression it turned into a bit of a debacle all around. (A browser mini-game page you can only use for one hour a day? BRILLIANT.) I'd expect more stuff like the Hidden Hollows, NPC Trainers, and Mystery Gift Events. Hopefully a better system for breeding abilities into children is added for male-only species.

    Maybe even another app like dream radar. I can see why they are closing it down.

    I think honestly dream world abilities were cool, but some were just over the top and as a whole i prefer they just didn't return. They could bring something useful back like auto leveling or the old explosion mechanics goddamn it!
