Boohoo, it's done with, get over it.
Pokemon is serious business.
At least now Granbull has a way to differentiate himself from Ursaring. Let's be thankful for that.
I really damn appreciate that Granbull in fact is Fairy now, even if doesn't make sense (although there are hints on it being fairy type + fancy rinch people story so this one is REALLY questionable) as right now it's the only Fairy type (so far, may change) with good physical bulk (counting Intimidate), so it may become anti-metagame Pokemon now with also really good movepool (including even stuff like Heal Bell).
Now for that Togepi screenshot...
Maybe it's just me, but I thought it was pretty obvious from the announcement of the new type that Granbull would be a Fairy since...you know, it's the "Fairy" Pokemon. I personally don't see anything illogical about the Fairy Pokemon being a Fairy Pokemon.
I couldn't be happier that the fairy type was introduced. There were WAY too many normal and psychic types that were essentially indistinguishable from one another. Now they have a new way to make themselves distinctive. The more normal and psychic types that become fairy or have the type added, the better. I'm really hoping Celebi and Lilligant get the fairy type, among many others.
Speaking of, Phantom force being a good physical ghost move a la Bounce is awesome. Dusknoir/Banette need this so badly. As does the Honedge line
Heck, I just assumed everything we saw in a trailer that wasn't from Gen VI was probably getting a Mega.
Gamefreak and logic don't go together. 15+ years of Pokémon should have taught you that by now.
As fun as it is to watch you guys make up a storm, just...drop the topic.
Here's Game Freak's logical process:
Make new game > put new type in new game > kids get excited > kids buy new game > Game Freak makes $$$
Here's the thing about Fairies, though: Granbull and Azumarill aside, the mold seems to be the same as psychics: good Special stats and speed but bad everything else. Why is GF reusing that model for mons like Floette?
We're just gonna have to take this one like garbodor guys.
"Is it in the game?"
Unless your my sister, and you LIKE Garbodor.
Honestly though, overall this generation has done more good than wrong in my eyes. There will always be changes I disagree with but overall so many things went right this generation that I just can't complain.
I liked its design, I just wish it was more useful in battle
What? Earth's main source of metal is... Earth itself. The nucleus is mainly made of iron, and even if we can't access that, the crust composition is very rich in metal: aluminium and Iron are the third and fourth most common elements in the crust, for example.
On the other hand, some metals only exist on Earth due to meteorites.
I don't mean to keep rambling. People post the same thing that I've already responded to from another member.
People just like to add and add, without reading my response beforehand. It gets annoying
Sorry to take this thread downhill, though it's not like we're getting many leaks at this point anyhow.
@ agonist: You mean it? There aren't dogs that breathe fire? I didn't know.
My favourite thing out of all this is, afaik, we still don't have confirmation the Clefairy line is Fairy type yet.
If Snubbull gets it, pretty sure Clefairy will too
What are you talking about? The main criteria for a retyping have been:
• Presence of pink in the Pokémon's design
• Ability to use magic or some random shit along those lines
• Belonging to the Fairy egg group
So far most retyped Pokémon answer to at least 2 of these criteria. If anything the lack of logic comes into play for Pokémon that match those criteria but weren't retyped... But we don't even have a full list of the Pokémon that were retyped.
The main retypes I have a problem with are of Psychics whose "fairy" qualities are questionable. Mr. Mime being part fairy reinforces the absurd overlap between the two, while I think Psychics and fairies should be completely different flavor-wise. They're both pink, specially based, and good against fighting. (Mr. Mime really is the only fairy so far whose retyping I have a problem with, maybe Granbull too if he ends up without any good physical STAB)
Fairy egg group, eh? Well, let's see who else is there...
Clefairy: Come on Trollfreak. Don't be that company
Blissey: That... could be interesting.
Jumpluff: I'd really be surprised.
Delcatty: I could see it.
Roserade: I'd rather not...
Castform: But to what end?
Glalie: No please, try it
Pachirisu: If plusle and minun didn't...
Cherrim: Eh, why not?
Froslass: Being a ghost is part of it's thing.
Manaphy: It'd be fine I guess
Still not true. All (stable) elements are present in the Earth composition, as they come from the Sun which already contained them. A normal Sun like ours is able to make all elements up to Iron, and ours contains elements of higher Z due to a prior Super Nova star, which can create elements of an atomic number higher than 26 (Iron's) from which our Sun got the necessary materials.
Many meteorites are rich in rare metals. TRUE. However, rare metals do not come exclusively from meteors nor are the main source of such elements.
Also, sorry for the offtopic, I'll end it here.
Can greninja, goodra or sylveon learn thunder?
It was not worth introducing a new typing so late into the franchise 13 years ago.
