I don't, fuck that swagger shit.
Any fighting type practically? Hawlucha who is also a luchador, is a good example.I don't see any reason why they wouldn't still be signature moves. Greninja has Water Shuriken and Mat Roll or whatever it is, for one. Especially with Primarina's information explicitly pointing out injuries to the vocal chords, I cannot see anyone besides Incineroar learning Throat Chop.
Very interesting those aren't their signature moves. I wonder if they're just regular new attacks. That would be really exciting.So if Laser Focus, Throat Chop, and Aurora Veil aren't the signature moves for the starters... who gets them?
Aegislash? I want that thing to be flat out OU this gen without kings shield, that ability looks busted as hell.I really hate Tapu Lele, a move terrain that cancels priority, and ability that sets this terrain up upon switch in. The only good thing I see about it is an Aieg replacement.
Iirc only the description and name were found, so we don't know for sure. And true, i can see multiple fighting and dark types getting it, so that seems likely.Do we know that throat chop is even fighting type? It could be a dark type move for all we know.
Tapu Lel. It's a strong ability for VGC, but sadly nerfs mah boi Liepard into the ground. The description does go fairly heavily into talking about it using support moves, so it may not have stellar attacking capabilities. Pretty sure the ability alone would put it in a higher tier though.I really hate Tapu Lele, a move terrain that cancels priority, and ability that sets this terrain up upon switch in.

I have a feeling the whole point was to make parafusion more manageable. 3/4 * 2/3 = 1/2--the chance now that a dual-afflicted critter will be able to move. Much better than the previous 3/8 chance. Not to mention that there being less speed penalty for paralysis means it's that much less likely to be in flinch territory.At first, nerf for paralysis and now confusion.
Oh man, I feel very sorry for Lanturn :'(
Still, auto Psychic Terrain can be a terrific ability. The first thing that comes to my mind is a certain Psychic/Fairy-type Pokemon with Pixilate that is very weak to priority... and that, in singles, would love to have something that allows it to get past Chansey without even trying.Unfortunately, VGC'17 only includes mons for the Alolan dex. So Liepard wouldn't even be able to participate anyway.
If it's an AOE attack (like EQ): maybe physical Grass allies could appreciate it.Decidueye's typing is sick. Grass/Ghost?! Much better than the Grass/Flying it was implied to be, and his signature move is an offensive Mean Look, which is really nice.
I also really like Incineroar now after seeing his animations, when before I didn't like him all too much. He has so much personality to him and his signature move is really good, too, ignoring stat changes. If he has good stats, I can see him being the bane to all Baton Pass teams.
I still like Primarina, but her sig move heals the burns of opposing Pokemon? So it's like a reverse Scald? Idk if I like the sound of that...
I'm surprised nobody has brought up the assorted possible Aether Foundation intros yet. Does that mean that the theory that the Aether Foundation are the true villains could be correct?
Four intros after the rainbow one could be for Elite 4 (Fighting, Rock, Flying, Poison?) considering it looks like Alolan Pokemon League could be post-game content.
Indeed, but there's always next year... ya know, besides the fact that it is hard to pull off it's main reason for being on the team.Unfortunately, VGC'17 only includes mons for the Alolan dex. So Liepard wouldn't even be able to participate anyway.
