Yes, this is going to be fun.
My wish came true, yes!!! Grass finally has a Pkm resistant to Fire! And being 2x weak to ice is not that bad. Wonder which ability would be prefered in monotype.
As for Greedung, wow, look at that HP, probably among the highest in the Galar dex.
Stakeout Thievul is interesting.
And rain got another physical swift swim sweeper in Drednaw. Nice.
Competitive on Bolthund is interesting.
While no Sheer Force for Coalossoal, I think Flame Body is its best ability.
I expected Flapple to be a lot faster, but with Ripen, it should be hopefully okay. If Salac Berry gives it 2+ speed, it ain't too bad, especially with those mixed offensive stats. All it needs is a good Fire move, and it should be alright, I think.
We have different Cramorant? Does that mean depending on which "version" you catch, they have different effects?
Propeller Tail on Barraskewda looks interesting, but I have no idea what it does. Maybe, priority on water moves?
Toxtricity looks like a wallbreaker, nice, and it even has Technician. Wonder what kind of moves it can learn to benefit from it.
Bug now has a Pkm immune to Fire moves in Centiskorch. It looks quite bulky on the special side with those hp, but somewhat frail on the physical side. But that doesn't matter as it learns Coil. It's slower but stronger than expected, but I can see it being used on Trick Room teams in VGC. We don't have many bulky Fire Pkm, and this one doesn't have to fear Intimidate if you use White Smoke.
Magic Bounce Hatterene? Interesting. Wouldn't surprise me if it finds much usage on monotype teams, especially with those offensive and defensive stats. It's not weak to Bug and Dark.
What is Perish Body? 8D. Maybe, something like Perish Song should Curosola faint?
Although Pincurchin looks like a bad Pyukumuku, with Electric Surge and nice offensive stats, it could be quite nice in VGC. It could also find a niche in monotype since no one Electric Surge, and every Electrig Pkm gonna love it.
Stonjourner surprised me the most. Wow, it's literally your defensive and offensive behemoth on the physical side, but quite pathetic on the special side. Reminds me a bit of Kartana.
Ohhh, Eiscue becomes a lot faster without its ice block.
Didn't expect that. Sand and Ice got new slush/rush users in the fossils.
