The datamines only covered TM/TRs (and later IoA tutors), but a move like Life Dew would only appear as a Level-Up move (or Egg, but that's obviously not relevant for Tapu Fini). Returning IoA mons didn't have a lot of those added, but the possibility is certainly there for anything returning in CT.I am sorry if this isn't the right place, but I didnt know where to post it.
I really really hope the move pool changes are off, and Tapu Fini gets Life Dew. It just makes so much sense for it, and while it isnt the best recovery in singles, it is something. Plus, if they can give Koko something like Rising Voltage and Lele Expanding Force, Fini can get something too.
I don't know about shit but that's good news for some of the potentially-top-tier dragons like pult. I don't understand why they did this to the Tapus T_TAurorus gets Aurora Veil by breeding.
The legendary beasts get Extreme Speed.
Victini gets V-Create.
Previously these were event only.
Also looks like the Tapus are gonna be shit this gen. Tapu Fini didn't even get Life Dew.
To be fair, the Eon Duo kind of dropped off in VGC and BSS due to Fairy Types and Draco Meteor. While they were still usable, they are a lot more niche in recent years, and did have many notable results. So I can kind of see why GF gave them Mystical Fire and Aura Sphere.Man they're really going to not give Cresselia/Celesteela Cosmic Power and not give the Galarian birds Roost (don't care as much about this one, but, they ARE birds), but they gave the Latis better versions of the Fire and Fighting coverage they've been bootlegging since Gen 3 with Hidden Power. Absolutely comical. Clearly priorities are in the right place.
Kartana also doesn't get Grassy Glide but I'm less surprised about that one.
I think it's notably because Cresselia is an already stupidly bulky pokemon, and the chance to get even bulkier while not missing out on dishing damage would give it a good niche.Why do I keep seeing people upset about Pokemon not getting Cosmic Power? It's not a good move, even when paired with Stored Power (Calm Mind is usually better).
It's a flavor issue. You're telling me the Pokémon that is the incarnation of the crescent moon (and good dreams), and moon-princess-bamboo-rocket, can't learn Cosmic Power, but Rayquaza, who is known for merely flying in the upper reaches of the atmosphere can?Why do I keep seeing people upset about Pokemon not getting Cosmic Power? It's not a good move, even when paired with Stored Power (Calm Mind is usually better).
With no EVs and a neutral nature, Superpower is only ~1% stronger, and with 252 Attack EVs and a +Def nature, it's only a ~5% gap (Adamant makes it 10%, but Superpower has that notable drawback) in power.I want to try out Body Press on Stakatacka too. Arguably better than Superpower because it doesn't lower offensive pressure and can even run with the Beast Boost Defense buff.
