    Let's see if I can help: 1) Yes, Ash-Greninja uses (and greatly enjoys) Water Shuriken because of its priority. While, as you have correctly stated, it's an already fast mon, sometimes you need the extra priority to pick off weakened, faster targets like Tapu Koko (pre Battle-Bond) or Choice...

    If Duralodon truly turns out to be a pseudo-legendary (since we've seen it fight against other pseudos every time it has had screen time) then it could be the coveted high-speed pseudo you're thinking, especially since we know from other screenshots that it has Gengar-level HP, and thus its...

    It's a way to mess with Dittos if there is ever a Lead Medicham into Lead Ditto scenario (or even just an U-turn / Volt switch kill into Medicham switch-in), it makes sure Trace users can't abuse the free SD (not that any can, but you never know), and also deals with the extremely rare Skill...

    Not to mention, it's shown moving before Kommo-o, which means it has a very decent chance to have above average speed, which is good since it means it doesn't die to Diggersby on the spot. On the other hand, they've also shown Dinamax-Milotic moving before Froslass, so maybe they're...

    Its dex entry however explicitely mentions a leader of some sort. And if Bisharp and Pawniard are anything to go by... ...then it's probably just another Wooloo. No problem here. Nu-uh.

    By the looks of what we have now, the bulkiest Pokemon on the special side seem to be Snorlax, Umbreon, (AV) Tyranitar, Lord and Saviour Mantine, (Eviolite?) Dusclops, SpDef Bronzong, SpDef Jellicent, Ferrothorn, Toxapex, and Goodra. Almost every single one of these has at least one of two...

    If the rumors regarding the Godzilla throwbacks with TTar, Hydrei and Duralodon are true, perhaps Volcarona could make it back in, and now it could ditch HP Ground completely because there's no Heatran to stop it and tech in Psychic to anihilate both Toxapex and Kommo-o. Not only that, but it'd...

    Something good out of the Galar Dex could be some new Egg move / combinations via new mons having either the right move, the right Egg group combination, or both. Imagine a Field / Amorphous Pokemon. Now that could open up a lot of possibilities for everyone thanks to Smeargle... Actually, any...

    Other than the obvious Gallade that I'll try and get with all my might, I'll probably have Sobble, Rolycoly, Duralodon if available early, Alcreamy and *maybe* something part Grass because I may need someone else other than psychic boi against Nessa's Dreadnaw. Probably Gossifleur, because...

    'Least we know that the Galar region will have some new, exciting Water and Grass types with interesting niches...that we'll drop once we try them out because nothing beats a balanced, 2 mon core of old that can Hazard Stack, Haze, work as a status platform, counter almost any Water/Fire Pokemon...

    Not only that, but both final evolutions have access to Thunder Wave / Hypnosis and Gallade makes for a very efficient catcher thanks to False Swipe (and no, the fact that they're in the slow experience group and that you'd need a dozen Dawn Stones doesn't matter. Not a single bit).

    If I'm not mistaken, Duralodon does use the same attack animation for both Flash Cannon and Do-or-Die (going on all fours and opening its mouth like a cannon).

    While significantly less powercreep-y, it also means that a Pokemon has to either be good from the get-go or it will be weak and stay that way unless it is blessed with Gigantamax bonuses. The good thing about Megas is that they made previously worthless or "junk rare" mons actually worthwhile...

    Duraludon's moveset is Do-or-Die (Steel Mind Blown) / Flash Cannon / Dragonbreath / Metal Sound , and it has been shown in its introductory trailer that it also has Metal Claw in its level up moveset (unless they pull an XY Gardevoir and remove it in the actual game).

    I honestly wouldn't mind Duralodon having base 62 HP for a couple of reasons: 1) It'd be the Pseudo with the lowest base HP (which would be a first, and that's neat), but mostly: 2)Now you have around 538 points you can shove wherever to minmax its base stats and have a good, strong Pokemon...

    Play Nice however shows both Pokemon interacting and jumping around. This one's probably either a signature move or something sweet-related common to fairies and such...or maybe I'm just dead wrong and they bothered implementing a new animation for it.

    There's something oddly satisfying about Rolycoly having not legs nor wings but a single wheel as mean of locomotion imho. Here's hoping it evolves into some sort of rocky automaton or a massive Rock engine with wheels. Breedable Dialga doesn't look like the fastest of fellows with that blocky...

    Unfortunately not, mostly because the loss of Zygarde has brought back things like Rotom and Celesteela back into the spotlight and Salamence has a hard time setting up with those in the way, while something like Kommo-o has a much easier time thanks to a much better typing, bulk and and...

    The biggest change is that Zygarde got the boot, which allowed all sorts of BO and Balance cores to come back to life without being labeled "snek bait". These include previously targeted mons like Celesteela, Toxapex, Rotom, etc, whom can now be considered true Ground-immune folk. Now that you...

    So you're telling me this game will get rid of *half* of the Sticky Web setters in the entire Pokedex? Outrageous!
