    Speaking of Electric Terrain teams, do we have any more info on what it actually does? And does it stack with rain? I'm drooling at the prospect of a Dry Skin Heliolisk in the rain with Electric Terrain present.

    I'm guessing.

    Boosts Electric attacks 1.5. Lowers Flying attacks 1.5. Also abilities will raise speed and power while it's active. You know the drill.

    Earlier in the thread it was said to have automatically caused effects like volt absorb and motor drive to activate. Will have to ask leakers for more info/confirmation.

    If Electric Terrain turns out to be real, it could possibly become the become the new go-to counter for rain teams.

    Electric Terrain seems to be a field move like Trick Room, meaning it would probably stack with weather.
    If it works that way that wouldn't nerf rain, it would make it stronger. Imagine if something like Thundurus (Prankster says hello) gets it.

    That's very true... We could potentially see a new type of team in the meta game then.

    Can't seem to find it and I don't have the time to browse 130+ pages, so just asking:

    is it confirmed that Inkay (or whoever it was) does evolve by holding the 3DS upside-down?

    imo, Dragalge alone makes Gen6 > Gen 5 from a competitive view (OU Tierings)

    That Poison. Dragon is moot b/cos Fairies can troll the opponents Dragons.

    I love how Zygarde is so Inorganic, it's got an air of unnaturalness, like he's beyond the cycle of Life and Death, I love it, I think it's interesting and I hope to find out more about it's backstory and inspiration

    Looks like Masuda didn't lie when he said they would focus on the competitive side this gen. Tons of good Trick Room candidates, and since Doubles is their main format, it was to be expected.
    Anyway, I just saw Zygarde (this thread advances too fast), it's really wierd. It's pretty weak for a legend, and it's typing make it worthless against Xerneas (immune to Dragon) and Yveltal (immune to Ground).

    I just don't get Zygarde at all

    It looks like an insectoid larvae but is apparently a dragon. It has an ability that counters two Pokemon... Pokemon that it is totally ineffective against. And now apparently it monitors the ecosystem?

    The Kyurem of this generation, which starts out as the weakest of the trio and ends up the strongest.
    It shouldn't come as a surprise that Zygarde will eventually get one or more powered-up forme(s).

    It's a snek. Remember that all of the legendaries this gen are based on the Yggdrazil legend. It's the snake that lives in the world tree.

    An activist Pokemon. Good job Greenpeace, oops, Game Freak.

    This would be a Pokemon more suited to RSE...

    I'm struggling to see how its a snake
    With its legs and compound eyes?
    It looks almost exactly like a dragonfly nymph I caught the other day

    We wonder if some Norwegians here can verify or correct us.

    Zygarde's name seems to derive from zygote, i.e. the earliest development stage of an embryo.
    It fits the life/death theme of the games, I guess.
